Ask (And Tell) Pica!

**Messages are no longer being accepted in favor of a greater focus on art and storytelling. I'd like to give a big thanks to everyone who submitted messages for this comic in the past! The former leader of a small, disbanded rescue team, Pica the Pikachu devotes his efforts into making his world a better place, and he's looking for help from an important ally who's worlds apart: YOU! Simply push him in the right direction, and he'll do his best to follow. You can also message him directly and he'll provide real responses in the midst of what's happening in the comic. ----------------------------------- While this comic started life as an interactive sprite comic, it has more recently become a traditional comic with its own art style starting with Lost - Page 10. There were large gaps of time between Lost Pages 10, 11, and 12, with 11 and 12 being three whole years apart. The new style has been cemented since page 12, and the comic now updates more consistently. Also check out Wild ZUBAT Appeared, a bonus gag-based series (featuring ZUBAT) placed after the sprite comics but before Lost, which updates alongside the main comic!

Cover Page

In a few weeks\' time, Smack Jeeves is going to undergo a (much-needed and long overdue) website redesign. Judging from the single preview I\'ve seen so far, it will be mandatory for comics to have a cover page for them to appear in the website\'s search results, meaning that this comic will need to have a cover page of its own, as well. That means you can expect the comic to have not only a new cover page, but also a new comic logo to go with the page. If the banner isn\'t made obsolete by the cover page, I\'ll also make a new banner to better-reflect the comic in its current form.

I\'m also thinking of making the old sprite comics less prominent, due to their age and rather poor quality giving a vastly different impression of what the comic is doing now for people who click the \"start reading\" button. I couldn\'t get rid of them completely because they\'re important to the comic\'s history, but I also don\'t want people to think that they\'re a mandatory read since, looking back, a number of them are in poor taste. There\'s still a lot of the sprite comics I think hold up pretty well, but since the first ones are really, um, bad, I think it\'s discouraging people from checking out the later ones.
