Pokemon Comics - 10.19.97 by jbwarner86 Pokemon Comics - 10.19.97 by jbwarner86
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...

Would you ever consider continuing the strip? I just found it at pokemoncomicstrip.smackjeeves.… and when I saw that there were only twenty strips I was devastated.

I don't do fan-comics anymore. Comics are extremely time consuming, and if I'm going to devote that kind of time and effort to making a comic strip, I'd prefer to use my own characters.

However, I do dabble in fanfic these days, since that's a little less labor-intensive, and I did make an attempt not too long ago to rework the boring-as-hell Johto saga into something a little more adventurous. It died after six chapters (I got almost no feedback because I used the Japanese names for the characters, so nobody knew what the fuck I was talking about), but I outlined the whole thing, and I'd like to go back to it and work on it again someday.

I never really thought of Pokémon as a show that did satire, until I saw that episode. It's such an obvious spoof of the "put every female character in a bikini for a half hour for no reason" episode that every anime seems required to do at least once. The fact that they went one step further and actually put one of their male characters in a bikini too makes it all the more ridiculous. :D

I have this episode on video and I thought that was weird when I first saw it. I know two other weird moments with James, one time he disguised himself as one of the officer Jennies, and another was actually banned in the U.S. for James had... you don't want to know. If you really want to know just go to www.serebii.net and clicked banned episodes, they explain what they are and wy they got banned.

I know all about "Holiday at Aopulco" - I've even seen it. And yeah, it's one of the most wrongity-wrong-wrong episodes of Pocket Monsters ever made. ("You're about 10 years too young to have a pair like this!") I'm pretty sure it was made as a deliberate parody of the anime tradition of having one episode where all the female characters are in bikinis for no reason - they just took it one step beyond the ridiculous by having Kojirou join in too.

Well still not all of their first episodes were like that and tehy really have gone down hill lately in their plots. I'm also sick of hearing Cilan doing his stupid "evaluation time" stuff (I miss Brock)
