Enter Monte:
a dude who woke up in a moving truck,
has no idea where he is,
thinks he's a girl,
and knows that everything happening to him
is a conspiracy.

And he's going to find out why.

Not much good could maybe come from this probably not.

It has a strong start, this will most likely be a pretty funny run.

Four new pages, but I had them done like 3 weeks ago.
Don't expect a new one for I don't really know what time period. I was supposed to get a tablet for xmas so I could skip scanning in the line-work and fixing it, but santa was scared to that he might bring the wrong one. So I started part of page 8, but haven't done much else, and school starts again next week so I have a 16-hour drive this weeekend.


Meanwhile, I reply to your responses!

Thanks a million!

I am sorry to say that the power cable for my laptop dieeeed needs replacing and I can still update on tomorrow (suuunday). This sucks because all my cartooning stuff is on there. The cable kinda works if you bend it a certain way, so I will only be using it in cases of extreme necessary-ness, like to retrieve a file or something. In the meantime, I won't be able to update on Sunday like I had hoped... I was going to try to get on a weekly schedule and this just pushes everything back, plus I have a comic for the school paper to finish. They better send the replacement cord pronto.

EDIT: found the issue and taped the cord to death as seen here:
[+] Ultimate power cord fix!
In the meantime, this will give me a chance to get the story caught up with the game (which would have gone even faster had I received a certain something for christmas...). What stinks is that nothing incredibly interesting has happened in the storyline yet besides some lame jokes and awkward situations. When I get more pages up, this plot is gonna blow your minds, or no moneys back. Just need to get past Petalburg, it's like the Tom Bombadil chapter from LotR. Feel free to ask questions.

Yay for new powercords!

A power cord broke on me once. Really made me angry - the cost to replace it was kind of ridiculous. I was expecting it to be under warranty, but it wasn't.

Power cords aside, this is a really cool comic, and I can't wait to see the next installment. :roll:

I know that I promised in the subtitle that I was going to have the next page up last week. Well, it's looking like it will be sometime this week, if I'm lucky. Being back in school isn't that time consuming; it's actually having a job after 2 years of mooching off my parents that is taking up all the time here. So I'm taking advantage of the fact that they are giving me all the hours I want at the times I want to get my car back in decent shape and store up a little emergency cash or something.

In the meantime, I have the drawing for the next page done, I've scanned all the drawings, and I am in the process now of cleaning up the line art and adding color where appropriate. This one is particularly long compared to the first pages, as I'm trying to get caught up to where I'm at in the game, but not skip too many story details. If Santa had bothered to get me a tablet like I had asked this year, this would be going faster, but alas, earwax.

So hang in there, my few followers. I swear I'll have page 8 up by the end of this week.

In the meantime...

Yes, there will be a number of snake jokes (hopefully). Thank you for your interest.

Yessss I finally got chapter 8 done!

Chapter 8!

No kidding, it took me 3 weeks, but like anyone wants to hear that. The real story will be underway in the next one or two pages. It needed some background and foreshadow first.

happy reading!

Hrm, maybe... :P


I'm incredibly sorry; I was re-running through all the pages and realized that I posted chapter 1 under chapter 3. CHAPTER 3 HAS BEEN FIXED.

Thank you.

I'm not really sure how to say this, but I have no will to continue this story until I get a tablet.

Allow me to explain -
When I make a page, I pencil the line art, and then ink the line art, and then erase the pencil, then scan the lineart into GIMP, clean it up, and color it if I so choose.
The unfortunate thing is that I don't have the patience to sit there with a mouse when I know that the glory of a tablet could really bring this story to life. I understand that when I started this thing, I meant it to be a really loopy play on what Nuzlocke himself was doing at the beginning.

That was before I discovered the forums.
After being introduced to the stuff PettyArtist and Shoeless were producing, I started thinking of what I COULD be doing with this story. Even after producing the first four pages, the story got a whole lot more elaborate in my head.
I know I want to bring more to this comic. I don't have the means or patience to right now, especially since I can't play the game anymore until I get caught up page-wise. Hopefully my mom or someone will come through for my birthday (10 days away as of 2/12) or I get my bass guitar sold (I never play it anyway).

In the meantime, I will be crudely drawing a typical fire red run with my mouse because I don't want to cut my heart out any longer. Nothing extraordinary, just a loopy documentation, that's all.

Thank you all for your patience (you people who are following this, anyway).

FORGET WHAT I SAID, I JUST ORDERED A TABLET RIGHT NOW. Should be here in less than 2 weeks; I opted for free shipping.

I'm gonna finish the lee's firetruck thing in the meantime, and that thing I promised to BOB the trainer.
