Re-uploaded because the original wouldn't show up in my gallery. If you faved and/or commented on the original, I apologize for the inconvenience.
After I posted "Monster Pokémon", a few people expressed an interest in seeing samples of my attempts at a "Pokémon" comic strip. Here's a sample from the first "year" of the strip, a Sunday installment showcasing a scene from my retelling of episode 15 "Battle Aboard the St. Anne".
About the date: I wanted the comic to look like it had been running in America since April 1997 (when the anime debuted in Japan), sort of as an American introduction to the anime and its characters. Thus, even though this is a recently drawn comic, I dated it October 19, 1997. I mapped out the whole strip's run over the last 10 years, keeping its stories more or less in sync with the anime, so I could draw any comic from any given period and get the date accurate.
Now to go expend some of this energy on my BarbozaToons comic project...
