Jet's Black Nuzlocke Ep042 by Zerochan923600 Jet's Black Nuzlocke Ep042 by Zerochan923600
Episode 42
<ep041
>ep043

Ok, firstly I'd like to apologize to all the Bianca fans out there for skipping the side story with her dad entirely. I always felt like the whole abusive father thing (I don't know if he was actually abusive, that's just how I interpreted it) was a little out of place, and she's a strong enough character without needing that element to be spelled out. But more than that I didn't feel it was adding anything to the story I wanted to tell.

Anyway. I think based on how I ended the last episode, some of you were expecting some Firedog flashbacks in this episode. Well, I'm sorry to say, but there isn't much mystery to Firedog and Lilly's character, because like most wild pokemon in the world of my nuzlocke, they lived pretty standard lives with pretty simple goals before joining Jet's team. Maybe in the future I'll think of some interesting moment to add to their past, but based on their early dialogue I think it's pretty clear what they were up to before they joined the team, and drawing it out would be a bit redundant and uninteresting.

As always thanks for reading! I really pushed the deadline this month, and next month might be just as tight, but luckily for me there won't be an episode in November, which will hopefully give me a chance to plan a few episodes ahead.

(And btw, I have no idea where Major is. I like to think he's hanging out in that tree maybe)

I love to hear my comics can get a real emotional reaction, but i hope it isnt too much of a roller coaster ride!

Glad to see Jet move on once again, and the fact that Firedog didn't quit
That's a relief

I love the way you've been handling your personal canon for the 5th gen story, but what I also love about your comic are the little things.  Like the two starters silently being there for each other in that non-dialogue panel, because of course Bianca's servine would be there to comfort him, because they'd known each other long before this whole adventure even started.

Can't wait to see where the team goes next c:

i'm glad you noticed that little bit. Bianca's starter doesnt get much to do, but i wanted to keep her present in the comic regardless

The whole abusive father thing was little out out place when nuzlocke comics put it in so I'm glad you didn't take that route.

I like that you didn't take that approach with Bianca and I like how supportive and understanding this professor is!

Yeah, the only thing the other professors do is either call you or send out other people to give you stuff or tell you not to bike indoors

I'm very happy with this page. Because Jet is changing, Bianca has a new choice, the team stay with their leader... And Firedog doesn't leave the team :)
It's perfect ^^

I actually like how you went right into the plot for this page instead of dwelling on Firedog's feelings, not that that kind of stuff isn't good, but this is refreshing.

Keep up the awesome work and see you next month ^^
