Back in the year 2004, I started reading the comic known as "Bob and George", which was known for a while as the "origin" to all sprite comics. I took an interest in sprite comics, but never released anything publicly. After a year, I started to get an idea of how to make sprite comics, and worked together with my friend who wishes to remain anonymous on my first ever comic about a boy who received the powers of Mega Man. It gained a small following, but I wasn't satisfied. So I remade it in 2007 and uploaded it to DrunkDuck. Then, my friend (who the comic was based on) didn't want to be involved with the project anymore. We cancelled it.

Then I had started another comic called "Slight Miscalculation" about a gender-swapped Mega Man, which also gathered a fair bit of followers.

I moved to SmackJeeves, and it appeared that there was a much bigger audience on SmackJeeves for this kind of comic. It is now 2011, and I don't do as much with sprites as I used to. I'm thinking about giving up on sprite comics all together, but not without giving it one more try.
Archie Quality
I have to say, my friend, I am quite impressed.
An anecdote, if I may. I recall walking down the aisle of my local comic book shop the other day and after buying the latest issue of Mega Man, I thought to myself how cool it would be if Archie had the rights to do other comic book adaptations of video games. The first thought that came to mind was Super Mario Bros.

Not only have you ultimately delivered on that concept, but you have fully realized Mario's origin in written form which has never been done (admittedly, a little hard to do considering the conflicting media portrayals of where Mario came from). It is very accurate to the modern games, while retelling the story of the very first Mario game. I am impressed.

Also, the fact you started off with the classic arcade "Mario Bros" as the stepping stone to launch off the story of "Super Mario Bros" is pretty awesome. I may be getting ahead of myself, but I wonder if there will be any references to Donkey Kong (the game, not the character - Super Mario's debut). That might make a fun flashback chapter all to itself.

Anyway, all my fangasming aside, this is an overall great and well-drawn comic and I hope it never ends. Can't wait to read the next one!

I'm not even a big fan of webcomics.
I would like to apologize for the extreme amount of updates. I've been reorganizing some stuff, and as such, I had to "re-upload some of the old pages". But to make up for it - here is some new content. Yes, it's filler. Sorry.
Do you hate me yet? Yeah, so this isn't a new comic page or anything, but at least it's something. I've always wanted to try something in the Battle Network sprite-style, but I didn't want to make a full sprite comic based on Battle Network, so instead you get this brief filler.

Actually, expect more of these in the coming weeks. I kind of like the idea of making a bunch of "what if" filler comics. What if Zero made an appearance in Slight Miscalculation? What if the comic was 8-bit? What if it was done in the style of the Ruby-Spears Mega Man cartoon series? Hmm...

Hey guys. So, some of you might've been startled by the big banner that says the series is canceled. And, well, the series is still technically canceled, as I am not making any "new" pages, but I've decided to take the "Quite Different" route and remake all of my old pages.

At what point will I stop remaking the pages? I don't know. But, I won't be stopping anytime soon. So, look forward to more stuff.

Oh, and the remade pages will be 8-panels long, which will leave some room for a bit of new material and/or simple filler. XD

Oh, also, when I "update" the original comic, it replaces that original comic. The only reason I re-upload said "remade comic" as a "new page" is because otherwise you guys won't get the alert that there are new pages.

It's kind of hard to explain, but try to understand. Whenever I remake and upload an old comic and replace that old comic, I'm going to delete whatever the "latest remade comic" is at the front of the row and upload the new "latest remade comic" in it's place. So -- basically, don't comment here, or else they'll be deleted when this page gets deleted. Comment on the original page (in the link in the description)... did I explain that alright? :D
Here is the link to the new spin-off series that I am working on behind-the-scenes, with Z-man Warrior. Check it out.

Also, status update on the comic... I'm not particularly motivated to do anything at the moment. I may or may not be releasing something special here in the future though, so keep your eyes on this comic, even if it appears inactive.
Wow, it's been a month already... and I missed the Slight Miscalculation anniversary comic? Sorry, guys. When sprite comics feel like a chore, I don't do them. And when I feel inspired, that's when I make them non-stop. Thanks for sticking around. Let me know what you think of this page.
No comment as of now, but don't let that stop you from commenting on the comic... seriously, I like reading comments.
Hey everyone. Happy 2011! Slight Miscalculation started February 2008. I've been making these comics for almost three years now. And I've been making sprite comics (in general) long before that. What should I do for an "anniversary type comic"?
Sorry for the lack of comics. I've been busy with... well, what I consider to be a lot more important then sprite comics. That doesn't mean I don't care though. I love making sprite comics! ^.^

And sorry I missed the Christmas special... I'll have another "special" filler comic soon to make up for it, maybe.

Can you guess who this new character could be?
You wanted MOAR? Well, you got more.

EDIT: If you want to make a cameo in the Non-Canon Filler Slight Miscalculation Christmas Special. Then be sure to send in your sprites.
Original commentary:
"No comments. I'm a bit tired. The sprites in this comic may seem unclear because spriting is hard sometimes if you want something to look like something but are given a small amount of space to do it so you have to make the pixels the right color and put them in the right spot. Very hard..."
Original commentary:
"No joke in this comic, just introducing Rock's friends as soon as "she" attends high school."
Updated: May 25, 2016

Original commentary:
"Rock took his... her anger out on Roll because she was programmed as a robot to not ever turn against her creator, and for some reason, that programming remains even as a human. So, instead she took it out on her sis- brother. Dang, this is confusing."
Gee, you'd think I'd do something special for my tenth comic, but nope. This is the best I could do back in early-2008. Ah, the memories. I remember trying really hard to make an update schedule, but I kept delaying comic updates anyway. Those were the days...
Original commentary:
"Updating less frequently from now on due to homework and a guideline that states that it's 'preferred if I update only once a day'. I actually delayed this comic due to re-watching the entire Negima! anime on the Internet. Wow, almost ten comics, that's like... double digits."
Original commentary:
"Another update. Rock and Roll get into a fight. You're probably wondering why Rock doesn't understand his sudden chest, well, the only girl Rock knows as far as I can tell in the games, is Roll, and she is pretty much flat-chested. All the human females Mega Man was likely to have rescued in the (in-between) games or whatever, he probably never registered the information of their physical features in his mind or whatever. I dunno, guess I thought it'd be funny."
Hey, after looking over some of these old comics, I remembered that Slight Miscalculation was first released on the Internet on February 16, 2008, meaning that I never celebrated it's first year anniversary and it's second one should be coming up fast in another few months. I might do something nice for it.

Original commentary:
"Currently eating a sandwich. Hope this one works, unlike the last comic."
