It took me a while to decide which comic I should link today and which to put off, but in the end, it was always going to be Mokepon.

I'll be honest, I have a lot of reasons not to like this comic. It's a fan comic, which is fine enough I suppose, but it's a Pokemon fan comic, and I have no love in my heart for cutesy Japanese crap like that. That means I don't get, like, ANY of the references to the games or anything, which would mean logically mean that I couldn't follow the story.

But you know what? I really enjoy it. Despite all of my reasons to dislike it, I find myself excited for the updates. The author and artist, H0lyhandgrenade (with a zero, not an o) manages to make the story readable even for those with no Pokemon experience at all. Plus, the art is a lot of fun too.

I've said before of this comic that it's the best Pokemon fancomic ever, which isn't in itself much to brag about, but Mokepon gets thumbs up. It transcends what it is able to be and has become a regular part of my webcomic-reading week.

Go take a read and see for yourself at http://mokepon.smackjeeves.com

Unless, of course, you happen to work for whomever owns the license and copyright to Pokemon and happen to be particularly litigious, in which case forget everything I just said.

Oh Mel, your a darlingg.
Patrick's face in the last panel is just gold (and his haircut doesn't look too ridiculous when his expression is equally so).
I also find Patrick being a hypocrite since he is, afterall, dating alexander. I have my eye on you alexander >( Snake.

(Hurrah for mokepon plug~~)

Patrick's attachment to the whole virgin/whore dichotomy just took a dump on him

Oh fuck.
See Patrick. See Patrick eating crow. Eat, Patrick, eat. Eat lots.

See Patrick's friends probably take the high road and not significantly rub it in his face.

With both of their hair like this and being the only two people in the scene, taken out of context this looks like some kind of crazy anime comic. XD

I love the last panel. "what?"

*giggles @tezzle comment*

I'm trying to be hip and cool these days, so I've resorted to using emoticons for my communication needs. I think this one means "shock..." or "hello, big boy" (not sure which).

Gibson Twist, February 11th, 2011, 10:28 am

The only emoticon I use is less of an emoticon and more of me giving the finger.

Eating Crow
Melanie really loves her brother...whether he deserves it or not. She hasn't slapped him yet, and she raised her voice for exactly five words during the whole scene.

Why weren't Melanie and Andy together in the first sequence?

WHAT??? TWO DAYS until another update? Two WHOLE days???

Mr. Twist, were you a cocaine dealer in your previous life?

H0lyhandgrenade, February 11th, 2011, 2:09 pm

Oh man, what a plug! Thankyou so much!

You tell him Melanie. ...But. Don't break his heart too much guys, it's in the right place. I think.

TCGC (Guest), February 11th, 2011, 3:20 pm

I miss Mel's blonde hair.

Ryan (Guest), February 11th, 2011, 5:32 pm

I've just realized that Patrick looks like he could be a character in Animal Crossing with that haircut.

peanutbutterpancakes, February 11th, 2011, 5:44 pm

Ahhh.... that does make sense.

Emily (Guest), February 11th, 2011, 6:46 pm

You know I never really thought about it but now that it's been said it makes way more sense that Melanie was the one coming on to Andy.

I love the way Patrick seems so small and confused in the last panel and so I am excited for the next page to see where it leads.

i love Patrick's facail expression in last panel!

Somewhere, Norman Rockwell is bleeding. Well, at least his Canadian counterpart.

Violet (Guest), February 13th, 2011, 11:08 am

I cannot get over her eyebrows. I'm astounded that they dyed her eyebrows along with her hair.
But yeah, stand up for yourself, Mel! Let's hope Patrick doesn't lose it like Devon...
