Police Dispatcher and Pokemon addict. Also bird-watcher and hobbyist photographer. You can see some of my photography at http://barn0wl.deviantart.com/ (linked above).

So yeah, I'm over 50 years old and just "discovered" Pokemon about 4 years ago. Probably one of the older Pokemaniacs around ...

And, last but not lest, I am a student and reader of the Tarot. 35+ decks in my collection. :D

Excellent prologue pages! I love the way you've drawn Luna! Such a cute little Vulpix! I like the way that lock of hair falls down the left side of her face. And of course, you already know I love your artwork. ;)

Oooooo! Pretty trees! Gotta say that's pretty quick thinking, I wonder what else Niku can do? Or was it more an automatic response? Hmmm ...

I am sooooo excited about Volume 5! I'm wondering if we're getting close enough for me to binge through Vols. 1 through 4 yet (again)? Hmmm ... probably when I finish the book I'm reading now.

I'm hoping that Fr. Quenton does get what's coming to him. At the very least he needs to be removed from his current post. Actually, at the very least he needs to never be in a position of authority over kids again. The Catholic Church has made some positive strides recently with disciplining Priests (and Cardinals and others) who have been found to be violating the trust of their positions. (See recent articles of the Church removing said violators and actually opening up their records to local Law Enforcement agencies.) Unfortunately, this progress is not yet universal and the Church has a much longer history of sweeping things under the rug and ignoring some very serious issues within the ranks of the Priesthood.

I'm also hopeful, given the fear of losing their daughter that Mrs. Strongwell has already expressed, that their parents will at least TRY to be a little more open to accepting Maria and Rudy for who they are. Maybe this whole episode will help them to realize that loving your children means not sending them to camps to be tortured till their "straight". "Love", they say "conquers all", but hate is a powerful emotion that can be extremely difficult to set aside.

... but then, I'm rather more of a pessimist about humans than I probably should be.

Oh ... and I totes called it ages ago, that Niku's necklace was like magical or something! :P

Yep ... like I said; explosion + cave = trouble.

Yeeeaaaahhhh ... explosions in caves are not really very good. I hope the gang brought hard-hats.

On the other hand, I'm looking forward to getting a good look at what spewed those flames!

@NikuComics: Heh! I had too. But reading back through it, I'd say that so far it's pretty close. ;)

And .... I'm caught up!

A PMD comic would be great!

+5 gain on agility for Niku!
@NikuComics: Absolutely!
Well this looks like a pleasant sort of dragon. I'm sure the blood all over it's legs is all just a misunderstanding. Probably going to invite the gang out for finger sandwiches. Them slaves didn't need all those fingers anyway ...
@00Stevo: Alas, it's essentially a private school, run by the church. The state, county or municipal school boards would have very little say in the governance of said school.

I meant to ask about his left hind leg as well. I admit that the prosthetic wings had escaped my notice. (I mean it's not like they're taking up like a quarter of the panel when we first see him ... oh wait ...)

I think that snake is in for a rough time regardless of the extra information.

And, I keep forgetting to mention your attention to detail. I like the fact that you gave the dragon god here different types of teeth. I'm sure it would've been easier to just make them all the same, but this is better, more real.

And, though it isn't pictured on this page, do we know how he injured his right foreleg? On page 9; http://niku.smackjeeves.com/comics/2584903/page-9/
Of course, this isn't the first time that Maria has had to deal with Todd. I don't think Todd will fare very well in this matchup ... (but he definitely deserves it).

Poor misunderstood snake ... you know, giant snakes have to eat too!
@Alereic: I think we could probably use Chase as extra fuel while we're at it ...
I am soooo looking forward to Moonlight Wanderers! I love Nuzlockes and with your story-telling ability, it should be great!
@NikuComics: IKR??? It wasn't that long ago that I started playing!
