THANK YOU EVERYONE THAT WISHED ME A HAPPY ANNIVERSARY~
I started Black Adventures on a whim on /vp/ exactly one year ago. AND THEN ALL THIS HAPPENED.
N first appears in the second episode, which according to my files was made on the 29th, so he’s actually celebrating a bit early, but whatever :’u
ahh I wanna do something special to celebrate….
I WILL TAKE THE TIME TO ANSWER QUESTIONS RELATED TO THE COMIC HERE. No spoilers, though;;
Congrats! It looks like a big celebration here at Black Adventures HQ, Pod even brought his birthday suit!
Every day is a birthday for POD~
So- much- Pod. I LOVE IT
WHO THE HELL ARE YOU.
YAY! Show him, Arcii! As much as I Less than Three Impostor Flame Wars, I do not support this one.
OMFGGGGGGGGGGGGG, WHY SO ADORABLE.
Wait, I don’t get the anniversary gift thing.. What tradition is it to give paper the first year?
It’s the traditional gift, but apparently started in the 1900s, so it’s not that old :u
Is it spoilers to ask what pairings you’re looking to end the comic with?
That’s quite possibly the biggest spoiler of them all;;
What If we just use Future Sight? Is that okay?
ooh! ooh! can we use celebi? or even douche-alga..?
Don’t you be dissin my big sis/bro!
YOU CAN ONLY “DISS” ME, FOR I AM THE OFFICIAL SCAPEGOAT OF THIS SITE. IF I USE FUTURE SIGHT, WILL SEPTEMBER 29TH BE THE BEGINNING OF THE FORUMS?
Nnnnnn…okay….I see…the final struggle…N is fatally wounded…finally receiving Black’s affection, he passes on…years later, Black and White are together in line for the ferris wheel… White leaves briefly for some reason…a tiny Yamask appears before Black, in its hands not a mask but a Menger Sponge…Blacks reaches out to it…it gives a wordless smile and fades away, never to be seen again…Phew! Time streams are hard to read! I wonder if I got that right.
Cool. But you gotta ask Arceus if your prediction’s right.
CONGRATULATIONS FOR BOTHERING TO STICK WITH SOMETHING FOR A WHOLE YEAR! But it is Black’s Adventures…. I’d stick with it too if I came up with it, and that’s saying something.
What is this erg to make an anniversary gift for this???
And I’m loving the Pod banner <3
I’m surprised I’ve lasted this long, haa;;;
Gifts are always appreciated~
-which reminds me, the Gifts section here is out of date idshgtfjhsgfd;;;
POD loves you, too~
I DID IT! Here it is:
What a masterpiece! -cough- not -cough-
Yay!! Happy (late) Anniversary!!! (It’s late cause I was celebrating my own Birthday ;-;) HOW COULD I HAVE BEEN LATE FOR SUCH AN IMPORTANT DAY!!?!?! I am unforgivable T^T
It’s okay I’m usually late, too;;
you’re usually carrying the offspring of two people..? does this mean..? 0_0
HE/SHE ACTUALLY RESPONDED *D* I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!
Wait… WHAT. An actual response from THE Black?! TwT
I think I’m gonna faint out of happiness… or maybe it’s the Pod banner…
Congratulations for making it this far, and I hope to see this comic continue for a long time to come as well! :)
I’m glad you decided to start this comic in the first place, and while I wasn’t around for this comic’s beginnings, I really am a fan of your work. So Happy Anniversary, and once again, congratulations! :D
Aw, thank you~
You deserve it for doing such a great job!
Wow, happy birthday N, and Happy anniversary BA! I started reading this before summer break and really loved the art and hilarity of this comic, so I became a big fan.
My question is: do you have a favorite side character? either to draw or overall character?
ahhh I have a lot of favorite side characters;;
In no particular order: Arti, POD, Ingo, and Emmet.
For a while, Arti was my favorite, which is why Black has a derpy man crush on him.
Is Pods x Pods canon? : 3
It is, in fact, the most canon pairing of them all.
2 peas in a POD. ^-^
I ammmmmmmm okay with this.
Happy Anniversary! ^^ Sorry it”s kinda late. ^^;; Also HOW FREAKING ADORABLE IS N?! XD
N IS AS ADORABLE AS ANY 22-YEAR-OLD MAN COULD BE!
Happy anniversary! Man, it doesn’t feel that long.
Also DAT POD BANNER.
It’s kinda terrifying how time flies;;
YAAAY CONGRATULATIONS ON THE ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY AND GETTING A COMIC FOR IT DONE YAAAY. :D Okay caps lock off.
N’s drawing is so damn cute. I don’t see what Black was worried about, N doesn’t know anything about sex as per episode 2. :T…Or does he?
But congratulations again! Thank you for taking the time to make all of these strips filled with awesomeness. You’re awesome~ :D
Black still can’t help but worry when he’s half naked in bed and N’s hand starts traveling south :u
Yeah, I guess that’s true. :U I’d worry too if that was the case.
You’re very welcome. ouo
YEAY FOR A YEAR! You now what we need now?
THAT’S RIGHT THERE HASN’T BEEN A PROPER TEA PARTY IN THIS COMIC IN AGES 8U
THE OTHER THING?!?!
Congrats on the 1 year anniversary, a friend mentioned something about a
“Black Adventures” comic and asked me if I read it a few months back. For a few days I kept on telling him, yes I read it; thinking he was referring to Pokemon Special (Adventures) – BW Arc XDDD
…then he linked me to this. I was hooked after a few episodes in. xP
haha yeah, I’ve noticed people making that mistake;;
Sometimes I think I should’ve given this comic a different name (especially since there’s a porn site with the same name), but now I can’t imagine it with any other name :u
Do they always sleep in bed nearly nude? o.o; I don’t even have to ask if it’s together because if it wasn’t N would probably explode.
They’re usually fully clothed, but it’s summer, so :u
I like to think N nervously woke up Black in the middle of the night for this. :3
I also love how N used their signature colors to write ‘Friends Forever’ xD
glad someone noticed~
Will you be making a forum?
One day, probably…
but I think what we have here is good enough for now.
since it’s the whole one year an-thing, and you seem to be cmmenting more than usuall, mind answering a question of my own? are you a guy or a girl? if you don’t feel comfortable writing for the public eye, just send it to firstname.lastname@example.org , don’t worry, i’m good at keeping secrets ^P*
…LET ME KNOW, DAMNIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! sorry, yelling, please?
The answer is out there~
Use your detective skills, AND THEN DON’T EVER TELL A SOUL.
Fun fact: people have been posting pics of me online since the Arcadia Mall Tour and that was BACK IN FEBRUARY.
ankdnsihnjievnvnoiniwninwivnin mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm OMGOMGOMGOMG THANKLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *D*
-_-; you just had to be difficult… CURSE YOU BASICALLY GENDERLESS WEBCOMIC CREATOR!!!! i’m sorry!-please don’t unleash your fury!-i love your work!
oh and a little side note- THIS STATEMENT IS FALSE! don’t think about it- i probably seem crazy now- I AM- but please to be scared, WE LOVE YOU!!! we’re a harmless person! or if you wish, a male, blind, blue-instead-of-green spiritomb named Sival- which is not my real name- WE LOVE YOU AND YOUR WORK!!!
The answer to the gender question is simple. Black’s gender is Missingno.
I had to deal with this too. And once I actually found out, Black trolled me by putting a false name on the package of my order DX
also, I’m sworn to secrecy, so have fun searching~
well i did some of my own research (buying keychains r win) and I get the same name every time. so I figure I kinda know what Black is…that doesn’t sound creepy at all though…. O.o
That gift is adorable N… really, really adorable. o uo
POD IS BEST. CAN THERE BE MORE POD? PLEAAAASE?
THERE SHOULD BE A DERP TEA PARTY!
OF COURSE THERE CAN BE MORE POD
do you like emmet or ingo better? youve asked us but i want to know your choice :D
I like the poll results :y
Is Pod going to be a permanent thing here? I mean, I enjoy a good derp-out like anyone else, but those eyes…
…they’re reaching into my soul, and touching me in bad places…
Oh yeah and HAPPEH BERFDAY!!
YOU SO SILLY.
I’ll change it back eventually.
Though if I had the time, I’d change it to differently things regularly;;
Will there be more MissingNo mayhem in the future? I feel as if he’s being cast to the side recently. What of MissingNo’s “siblings”, such as LM4 and ‘M..?
Yes to more of MISSINGNO.
But probably not to his siblings.
I have to say that your comic has a better plot than the actual Pokemon Anime.
OK so my questions are this : When you are making your comic, do you start entirely from scratch with a drawing pad or do you scan it in and then ink in a layer over that? Which method breeds success in the long run? And is there any advice you have for a fellow artist?
I plan it out on a piece of paper. Each panel is about a square inch and I pretty much just draw floating faces and write dialogue. I don’t scan anything. I find it much quicker to sketch and draw digitally, but making a first draft on paper is convenient because I can see every panel at once and I can work on it even when I’m away from my computer. JUST KEEP DRAWING. PERSISTENCE OUTWEIGHS TALENT. CONNECTIONS OUTWEIGH TALENT. But talent is nice to have, too.
Thank you so much!
I’ve started reading this two weeks ago.
…this is my favourite pokemon-related stuff evar now.
also, DID N CARRY THIS PICTURE IN HIS PANTS THE WHOLE VACATION?!
I love this comic so much :3
I say N hosts a huge tea party with everyone and the dress code is maid suits :D
N wouldn’t want White and Cheren there, though;;
Why don’t the people have toes?
Why don’t the people have FEET?
Hey I have no feet
You’re a ghost. They’re human.
Bah, who needs feet? Levitation is where its at!
Screw you guys, I levitate AND have feet.
So do I. Although when I have feet, I don’t levitate and vice-versa.
The same reason they don’t have noses: THEY DON’T DESERVE IT.
Honestly, it’s just the drawing style.
I don’t have a nose too
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BLACK ADVENTURES~ I haven’t been here since the beginning, but hey.
And I don’t have any question because I know it’ll be answered eventually. Or not.
Oh, and N’s drawing skills amaze me.
Yes, N is an artiste.
Sob I think you stopped answering but I just wanted to say…
Because of this comic, I got back into the Pokémon fandom and it has been the most uplifting wonderful thing in my life for almost a year now. I’ve met all my new best friends with it and rekindled friendships with old ones by talking about it again. It really really means a lot to me and I’m ready to stick with you to the very end because this comic is wonderful and the feeling means the world to me. Thank you so much.
Also, dem Subway Masters. Any chance of a reappearance? Totally wanted them on the beach.
We demand the Germans. In swimsuits.
Or naked, thats cool too.
haha, I was actually never into the fandom til I started this comic. Is that weird?
The Subway Bros are no longer necessary to the plot, but I do like them, so we’ll see :u
I feel it might be a good time to mention this. If the Battle Subway is throughout Unova’s underground, then those two could pop up just about anywhere~
HAPPY ONE YEAR!
N or Pod?
Depends. Can it be SEVEN PODS?
Like the seven dwarves??? Would Black be Snow White??? Who would be the evil queen??? Cheren???????
THE BEST INVASION
Oh. OH. My heart. This is far too precious for words.
yay, you’ve hosted a web comic that’s been on for a holw year! Now you can brag about it to your not as talented (by comparison to yourself, of course) friends!. ;u;
I also see you’re going to answer some questions, here’s my question(s)
Will Nilbert Ever appear in the comic?
Will MissingNo.’s past be revealed?
Will the Musharna (?) or maybe some other outside force that made Black’s dream a reality (The dream that gave him N and Missingno.) Be raveled?
I really want the Nilbert question answered.
YES, to at least two out of those three questions.
Wow, one year of **Large arm motions** THIS?! Congrats! I mean, I’m jealous I can’t come up with something half as amazing as what you have created right here. Whatever you’re on, tell me, WHERE CAN I GET SOME?! XD
P.S I know that I’m not the only one to say this, but, LOVING THE BANNER.
I DON’T EVEN KNOW HOW I’M KEEPING THIS UP.
Blaaaaack. Since you seem to have the comic relatively planned out, how long do you think it’ll last? I mean, time-wise. I’m just curious as to how much of it is left. Maybe that’s a bad question. XD
I LOVE YOU MORE THAN EVERYTHING.
It’ll probably be done Summer 2012.
／人◕ ‿‿ ◕人＼
I can haz contrackt?
…I’m sorry, but I only make contracts with demons.
And not the red kind, I mean the sexy butler/maid kind.
Happy first anniversary!!!
I’ve got a question about this comic.
Since you’ve managed to get through 5 gyms in one year, Black will probably already have completed the pokemon leage some time next year.
Do you plan to continue this heartwarming adventure afterwards or to make a sequel/prequel/new show set in another pokemon region afterwards?
( If the possible future of Black Adventures is supposed to be a secret, I hereby apologise for asking you this queistion )
Oh, and best wishes from Germany!!!
When I first planned this out a year ago, I though I would have it done by January 2012, but now at the pace I’m going, and how long some episodes are getting, it’ll probably be done in the summer 2012;;
Since there’ll still be a lot of New York to explore, and maybe a couple questions to be answered, a sequel is possible.
Yay to German fans! You guys are always buying Ingo/Emmet keychains lol
This is just another post by another nameless guy out of the milions on the internet, so take it for what it is: proof that exists yet another person on this wide wide world that appreciates this comic, congratulates with you for the anniversary and hopes you can go on enjoying and drawing this marvellous story.
I’m pleasantly surprised at the amount of dudes that keep up with this :y
Happy birthday Black Adventures ;_;
I remember finding a random panel of this comic and then frantically searching google for the actual comic. Oh the interesting things I found… I love this. I cannot wait for more >.<
Sounds like someone had to rummage through porn to find this site, haa;;
I so happy Black adventues had made it this far! It’s funny and random and crazy and I wish it would never end!
Where did u get the idea for all this? I have fallen in love with this comic!!!
Well, the first two episodes were just me drawing what a bunch of anons wanted. And then I took over and started drawing things I like while trying to make a more coherent story. That’s about it :u
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!! :D *gets the Chip and Dale dancers and the sparkling cider* Oh yeah~
I love this comic a lot, and hope there’s plenty more laughs and ‘awwhs’ and ‘HNNNGGG”s to come!
STRIATON TRIO AS CHIP AND DALE DANCERS GET
BEST THOUGHT IMAGE EVER
Man, it’s so weird to think that it was a whole year ago that I saw that thread that created the first episode. I’m so happy I did, though. I even lost track of it until episode five and then came back to it… /shot.
THAT POD BANNER IS DELICIOUS. I WANT TO POKE HIS NIPPLES. I BET HE’D MAKE A SQUEAKY TOY SOUND.
Yeah, it’s really weird;; LOOK AT MY LIFE. LOOK AT MY CHOICES.
POD WILL MAKE WHATEVER SOUND YOU TELL HIM TO~
!!! <3 Yay i didn't even realize it has been a full year xD
Awwe thats so cute of N
Y black no has gift for N :U
Black is too poor to give gifts;;
Aaah, cute~! Haa, POD!!!
HAPPY (…late^_^;) ANNIVERSARY~!!!
Uhhm, I guess if you’re still answering questions, mine would be if there was something in particular that inspired Black Adventures, or if it was just one big collage of, pretty much, everything awesome and… Uh, some-more-awesome?!!! ><;
I saw some choose-your-own-adventure threads on /vp/ and thought it looked like fun, so I gave it a shot. And that’s how it all started :u

One year anniversary? You know what this calls for? A PARTY!
But wow, I can’t believe that’s it’s been a year already. I got into Black Adventures a month or so after it started and it’s crazy that’s it’s been a year. It’s prolly the only pokemon webcomic I still follow now too! Thanks for making this hilariously awesome thing and sticking with it. =D
THANK YOU PINKIE PIE!
do you have it all planned out until the very end??
TELL ME EVERYTHING —m0,0m—
The final two episodes have changed a bit since I planned them last year, but yes, it is all planned out now :u
Happy Anniversary, Black~ I got you paper. |D
Here’s to another year of blackadventurescomic! Congratulations Black!
HAPPYVERSARY, BLACK ADVENTURES!!!!!!!!!!!
OMIGOSHOMIGOSHOMIGOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BLACK HERSWELF RESPONDED TO MY COMMENT! THIS IS THE HAPPIEST DAY OF MY LIFE AS A SHINY ZORUA!
HERE’S TO BLACK ADVENTURES! *holds up huge glass full of vodka*
OH LAWD DRUNK LANDORUS INCOMING
More commonly known as Landrunkus.
*holds up a silver sharpie*
Now get drunk so I can draw on your face like a pissed off Jigglypuff.
Could I help you with this?
(has a prank store house
I love your comic, and I commend you for keeping it going for a whole year.
I have two questions.
1: Will Black, Cheren, Bell, White, etc. ever realize that N can legally buy alchohol? And if so, will there be hilarious results?
2: After completeing Black Adventures, are you planning or thinking about doing another comic about a different pokemon game? If so, I recommend Heartgold/Soulsilver.
Thank you for a year of entertaining updates!
1. Well, Black knows. And he’s not too worried about N trying things like that.
2. A sequel for Black Adventures is a possibility, but I don’t intend to do another pokemon-related comic. I kinda wanna do original stuff eventually :x
Seeing some original stuff will be very interesting indeed. I’d say “I can’t wait!” but that’d mean I’m ready to stop seeing more of N and Black which I’m totally not.
Happy Anniversary! To a future filled with even more traps and shounen ai!
A bright future indeed!
Happy anniversary!! It´s only been a couple of months since I started reading, but I´m already in love with it, even if I´m not usually a fan of BL or stories insinuating that xD I like how you manage your story, how your art even though it´s simple works perfectly, and the humor and references you use. Thank you very much for such a great job!
I’ve noticed a lot of fans have said they’re not fans of BL, but still can’t stop reading this :v
Maybe because, as gay as this comic is, it’s more of a comedy adventure? lol I dunno
THAT IS TOO CUTE~~~
the thing N drew? lol
Happy Anniversary,ya!Here is hoping for many more to come~!
Congratulations! I’ve been following Black Adventures since it was a thread on /vp/ and it never fails to make me lol… I rarely comment, but I actually like this comic more than I do Pokemon B&W :I So that’s a thing.
I like it more than that comic, too! But this is my creation, so yeah;; Anyway, thanks~
Happy Birthday/Anniversary keep going with the awesome job!!!
thanks, I shall~
question, there will be an all legendaries fight at the end…? damn, that will mean spoilers
Happy anniversary :3
*the wild Missingno fled*
COME BACK I WANT A MISSINGNO BLADE
HAVE I BEEN FORGOTTEN?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? WHAT IS THIS BLASPHEMY?!
I have an art request, and I figure now is a good time to ask. Could you draw a tea party scene with all of the Legendary Commenters on Black Adventures? It would also be a good header-image for the Unrelated section.
That would make my life
Approved by Landorkus.
It would indeed be the perfect header image.
I approve of this message.
I’m not even a legendary, and I want this bad.
It would have to wait til I finish all the other requests, but yeah I can do that :y
I picture the Kami Trio, and a few other infamous legendaries all having tea in the header, with (maybe) a few other commenter’s heads poking in. It’d be pretty badass, actually.
I wanna be there!!
Epic Epicnessyness, Giratina! I want in on it! Even if it is legendaries only.
Can I be in it too?
I mean, I know I’m a Sinnoh Legendary, but..
Atleast I’m not Arceus?
Include ALL the Pokemon commenters!!!!
that’d be so much work though… D;
I made a list of the regular commenters that I know!
If any else of you are considered regulars, please let me know!
And IT’S STILL AN EPIC IDEA, GIRAA.
Holy fuck, you actually noticed me. I feel like Canada on here most of the time.
Who? (just kidding, I notice you too)
HOLY-ROMAN EMPIRE I’M THERE! :D
I’m prolly just there ’cause i commented above :L
*Pats Shiny Zorua on the head* Good job. No one else would have bothered.
Wow, that’s a really cool idea. :D
Here’s to another year of crossdressing shenaningans and other types of awesomeness.
I would say, “here’s to many years to come,” but I don’t know how long this comic will last if it covers only B/W events. Congrats nonetheless. Keep kicking ass, Black!
yeah it probably won’t be many more years, but thanks~
QUESTION FOR AUTHOR!BLACK:
Is Nilbert going to make an official appearance in the comic?
If you’re going to answer questions, is it okay to ask if Iris is still alive?
THIS. I’ve been wondering about whether she would appear later on for the longest time.
We’ll find out what happened to her when we reach Opelucid~
Do you believe in the power of Drayden’s beard?
It has authority over DRAGONS.
I should know.
He’s like the Chuck Norris of Pokemon
He’s like the Chuck Norris of Pokemon.
Crap, i accidentally posted twice.
Drayden’s beard is indeed powerful.
Boy… I want to do something ta thank you for this wonderful comic. And, I wouldn’t mind if N joined us.
oooh mister hiker ooh
…..WAIT I THOUGHT I KILLED YOU
It was self-defense, so it was alright. He must have returned as a zombie!
I NOTICED THAT BLACK HAD NO PRESENT FOR N. I AM SAD.
*But not as sad as N*
N is not sad because he knows Black has no monies :y
Handmade presents mean so much more then, don’t they?
OH GOD SO MANY PODS
Also, will Dream World make a reappearance, either by explanation or event?
Or is even a yes or no answer too spoilery?
I think more Dream World stuff is necessary to explain some things, no? :u
Happy late anniversary!
I dont know if you are going to answer anymore questions but if so, and I know its kinda spoilerish i guess, but will we see more Ingo & Emmet?
if we do, they won’t be playing significant roles.
I dont care if they are important or not, I just love how you portray them!
Thanks for the reply<3
I finally caught up! Yay! Happy belated anniversary! *Happiness*
*in happiness too!*
Eep! You actually noticed one of my posts! Thank you for the reply!!! *More happiness*
Thank God that TVtropes linked me here.
Pod Pod Pod POD.
POD, POD EVERYWHERE.
I think there could be more POD, yes?
What is N’s favourite Pokemon?
HE LOVES ALL POKEMON.
But if he has to choose among just the ones that have already appeared, it’s Samba.
by god this is so adorable.
I’m another one of those lurkers who hardly comment, so I’ll say now I really love the new sides you’ve given to the original Pokemon characters as well as how regularly you update even though you’re handling projects for school as well! And of course the adorable art and facial expressions your characters have :T
thank you very much~
So, I have a question?
._. Um, just a little thing, but….any chance of an on-site archive? Because you do upload in big chucks and some people do miss out between updates while still in that episode, never mind that digging through the episodes just to find, say, the Christmas panel is a tedious hassle…um….
*doe eyes* Links to the start of the episodes aren’t enough. They’re big episodes.
I tried out the archive widget on this site, and it’s pretty useless :’u
It only shows one page at a time; the only difference is posts are grouped by month instead of episode;;
I can set it so more comic strips show on one page, but that would just look awkwardly long/take a long time to load.
Unless I’m missing something and there’s actually a good way to show an archive on this site, the answer is no;;
Well, I was thinking more text links on a page, ultimately; a lot of comic galleries use text links over graphic links, especially if the pages are numerous at that point in time. Like, simply:
as an example. Just something that would get readers to the middle of a chapter, somewhere. *feels uncomfortable for asking, but does believe an archive of some kind would be an asset to the site itself*
that would be helpful, but it’d take a while :’u
Wow.. It has been that long.. Well congrats for your awesomeness!
Wow. Now Black Adventures is a year old. Man, that´s damn long.
And really, I LOVE this comic. It’s so fucking funny.
Keep on going like this, Black! ^^
By the way: Happy Anniversary! :D
thanks for keeping up :y
Oh, no problem! ^^
Happy Anniversary! I’m far from a fan-girl (especially seeing as I’m a boy… XP), but I really love your work! It’s hilarious and has a really good story!
I’m actually working on a Pokemon Black Version comic myself. It’s a bit more personal and appealing to the gaming aspect, so it’s probably not gonna be nearly as good as yours. As of right now, I don’t have a scanner or a reliable internet source, but if I ever do get it up and running I’d really like to know if you want to check it out.
Any way, keep doin’ what you do! ;)
sure, I’ll probably check it out :y
Wow thanks. My life’s really not in order right now, so it’s probably gonna be a long time before I ever do get it going. Still, like I said, I’ll let you know if you really want to. ;)
Do I see Pod at the top there? *hurr hurr*
No, you see seven PODS
Adding my two cents, again. Congrats on the one year! :D I can’t wait to see how this thing will end.
Also I used my stalking skills to find YOUR TRUE GENDER!! and, don’t worry, your secret’s safe with me.
Artist Black actually HAS no gender, guys. Everyone go home :V
Either that, or Artist Black has superpowers similar to that of a parrot fish.
Artist Black is a living color.
Colors have no gender.
AHHH MY SECRETTT
i have a question
DO YOU REMEMBER ME?? 8DDD
Also i love this comic i love it okay thank you <3
YES! You’re one of my first fans ever <333
Will you be attending New York Comic-Con/Anime Festival this October?
I will probably never have the funds to attend a con outside of California;;
And so we now know the general location of our beloved Black. All the way across the U.S from where I am, sadface.
WHOO GO BLACK YOU MADE IT FOR AN ENTIRE YEAR! And that POD banner is the best banner I have ever seen. LET’S HOPE YOU CAN KEEP IT UP FOR ANOTHER YEAR/WHATEVER AMOUNT OF TIME IT TAKES TO FINISH THE COMIC.
AHH I HOPE I CAN MAKE IT TOO
I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO THE LAST COUPLE EPISODES KHSDGFHFDG

I actually couldn’t stop D’AWWWWWWWWing at that picture. N, Y U SO CYUTE?!
THE POWER OF EARLY TWENTIES!
O: DOES THAT MEAN I WILL BE THAT CUTE IN 3 YEARS TIME?
Holly crap!!! I share a birthday with a comic!!!! I wanna hug N now!!!!! XP
Congrats! Best web comic EVA.
Also, I didn’t notice the Pod thing until someone mentioned it. So I checked. And screamed. AND SCREAMED.
POD enjoys the sound of screaming
Are any of the forum pokeregs gonna appear randomly?
(Out of the ones who didn’t appear yet, of course.)
Also, congrats on the one year anniversary. POD IS REJOICING RIGHT NOW.
Like Landorkus and Thundhurrus and Arceus and Zekrom?
Y U NO MENTION ME? I post almost every day!
I am saddened that we dushwkcheyehdhfjdiwbrhdk can’t know the pairings.
But one a djeornxksowoenfn happier note, HAPPY ZHCIRORLWPEK ANNIVERSARY AUTHOR!BLACK!
We all love you sojfkfkjdnrbfk so much.
I was going to shxkcikebfoco ask if Dirk was gay. Damn.
Maybe you diohendxj could add in a Pokémon with a speech xjdkenffl impediment eventually.
One that could osixnbeeifo
ONLY SKCIENDJOS SAY IT’S NAME!
WHAT A TERRIBLE SPEECH IMPEDIMENT TO HAVE
SUCH A DJCKCKSKEMWNW SAD PITYYYYYY!!!
Let’s start the hdicoajwmqkl Pokémon Speech sjdkckfkme Therapy Fund!
D’aww. Happy anniversary, Black Adventures!
Also, SO MUCH POD. THIS IS MAKING ME HAPPY
Oh wow. I remember the first thread on /vp/. And the days when there was only like five of us commenting.
I’m so glad this is still around after a whole year.
Psychic pants forever.
my how things have changed :u
I take it you’re the anon that suggested psychic pants?
Question, how long is the pod banner staying? Also Will more bonus be made?
til I feel like changing it back :u
I did like making bonus episodes, but they end up taking most of a day, so I won’t have time for that any time soon;;
I’m proud to say that i’m a guy who checks up on this comic on a regular basis. HAPPY ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY :DD
one word to describe this: AWESOMENESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ahhh thank you!!!
Congrats on making it to a year. This has to be the most amusing comic I’ve read in a while.
I love their expressions the most, especially Black’s
Also just thought you should know you have fans from the Caribbean too ^_^ Keep it up!
neat! may I ask where in the Caribbean? :u
I part of a small percentage of people who care about pokemon still. Trading sucks here >_>
Will there be more Pod in the comic? :D Or for that matter the other Striaton triplets but MOSTLY POD :Y
they will most definitely reappear :y
Will Black’s masculinity level continue to drop every chapter? It’s sad to see his only chance to be with White getting farther and farther away…
Black was masculine once? :u
A bit, but not much.
Let me just say that I have been IN LOVE with this comic ever since I saw a panel on memebase. You are a fantastic writer and an extremely talented artist in your own right. Now I know that it seems like a pretty derpy question at this point, but I just feel the need to confirm… is N actually gay? I’m not gonna ask about Black cause that would be a spoiler. :3
N is unaware of the concept of sexuality :u
But yeah he has some pretty gay tendencies.
