A Pokeman

Artist's Note:

This is what we create. Our jokes are weird, and go to places that I can't help but adore. Also the change in tone really made things work! I haven't had much chance to experiment with dynamic lighting like this, so this felt like a nice change. 

Oh yeah, the first few panels were inspired by Powell's City of Books, a bookstore that I love going to, but rarely do. In the comic it's called Bowell's, whose books are shelved in a strange rainbow-esque fashion.

Powell's City of Books is quite magical, and if you ever have the chance, you should definitely check it out.

Writer's Note:

For some added context, the kidnapper only has flying-type Pokemon, so Brock is actually spot on here.

You'd be surprised how easy it is to swap the word "Pokemon" for "skills" in everyday life. It sure would make job interviews a bit more fun ("So Mr. Anderson...what kind of Pokemon will you bring to our company?"). 

And yeah, I know that the full name of the upcoming game is actually Pokken Tournament, but we took some creative liberties here. I can't tell how good or bad it will be from the videos coming out about the Japanese version, but hey - you get to play as Pikachu dressed up as a Mexican wrestler. Nuff said.
