So obviously I promised updates soon and obviously updates were not forthcoming. I graduated in June as planned and the second that happened I went into recovery mode and eventually started looking for a job. And while I didn't FORGET about my comic, I just didn't think too much about it.

Apocalypse Johto is not dead. I'm going to finish it. I know how it ends, and none of you guys know, and that's what storytelling is all about for me. It's about you guys. I just don't know WHEN I'm going to finish it. This has happened before with my artistic pursuits, I start putting something up online, I tail off, and by the time I admit to myself that I'm on hiatus it feels absurd to actually confirm the hiatus to the fans. But here I am, confirming it, because I've learned that communication is very important, even when it's inexcusably belated. I learned that by actually having fans. I've never had those before with previous comics. And I've never gotten over six hundred pages into a comic before. I've never gotten over twenty-five pages into a comic, in fact, which probably accounts for my never having fans before now. And I think all of that points pretty strongly toward me finishing this thing. I owe too much to this comic, and too much to you guys for reading it and telling me what you think, to leave you hanging forever. So leaving you hanging...indefinitely is going to have to suffice for now. When I'm feeling Apocalypse Johto again, Apocalypse Johto will continue, but NOT before then. And that's a promise I can keep.

It was a while ago that I read a lot of nuzlockes, but recently I've started getting back into them since I had the idea to do my own... and I re-read this mostly to get back in the mood. I have to say I am absurdly glad I did; it's freaking amazing. A lot of darker Nuzcomics just get stupidly emo, but I absolutely love what you've done with Johto and the people that live in it. The timescale, the way each area really does feel like its own place. You make Johto feel like an entire region, which really is rare. Honestly, I'd say this is my favourite Nuzlocke comic ever. I almost literally jumped for joy when I read that it wasn't abandoned, just on Hiatus. I (selfishly) hope you update soon, you're absolutely amazing!

No problem! It's certainly well-earned praise in my book.

I have a question...

We saw in your comic how the change affected Johto, implied what happened in Kanto and showed bits of Hoenn.

I try to imagine how the full story in hoenn went down in more detail. I mean we saw how Roxie lost it, heard how Norman died, Winona lived on, Flannery died with Reuben as lovers ect...but I still ponder on what other leaders may have turned out in result of the change.

And for other regions the same. Sinnoh, Kalos, Unova, how the change would have affected the characters and changed them for better or worse...

I have no ideas for them as of yet, but if you are ok with it, may do some fanart about it, about how I think the change could have affected them. I won't do it for the kanto characters for obvious reasons, just for the ones we won't get to see in the comic. With your permission of course.

I always welcome fanart! I'm pretty sure I've covered Hoenn as much as I'm gonna. A reader on the nuzlocke forums did a write-up of the Change in Hoenn which was pretty damn excellent, even though I ended up contradicting it with my take. I'll look forward to seeing yours!

Thanks; I'll let you know when it's finished.

But now I'm curious about that Hoenn write-up that guy did, can you link it to me?

It is somewhere in this thread here:…

I am going to be rereading the entire thread soon, along with all the DA comments, so I'll let you know if I find it before you do.
