Did you REALLY just say the TRUCK was FRAMED for a murder?


I thought it was an amusing line.

Sam personified the truck in his initial scenes of the comic :basil:

Meh, the cool people stayed. I know that AJ and Ceaser and some other folks still check in occasionally. I'm still a bit star-struck that some of this sites best artists spare a second to read my comics. I mean, that is just mind blowing! People with such talent looking over my art. Believe me, it never stops surprising me.

Basically, all the people I am interested in hearing opinions from are still hovering. That's the wonderful thing about the CR community. You guys share my interest (i.e. Ace Attorney) and are awesome! I feel bad about not being able to comment here every day, but because you lot are interesting to talk to and always have amusing opinions on certain comic panels, it keeps me updating each day.

Long story short: everything is awesome :edgey:

Oh and since you've said that mate, I should probably add: if somebody has major problems with the way that I run this comic, then stop complaining and go and make your own. Put some effort in rather than sulking about it. (I changed my tone in the hope of getting other comics on this forum. Let's see if it works... ;))

Thank you all for sticking around. I am in your debt :will:

Double post, but I wanted to say:

I am working on something to thank those who still comment on this post and read the comic.

Just wait and see, folks.. :will:

It's not like it'd be hard to do better than yours. :P

Where would this comic be without your sarcasm and wit, Oliver? :basil: haha, anyway, I better get to updating the new comic early!

Time really snuck up on me tonight.

Edit: (Oh, and joking aside: if you guys want to see a FANTASTIC sprite comic, you need to check out Francis Equatuis by Greeny. (I always spell the surname wrong, sorry.) It is somewhere in this forum: it is the comic which inspired me to come back to Ace Attorney. That guy is a genius story-teller and a damn good sprite-comic-maker. Just give it a chance! We need more folks reading that stuff. You don't forget it. After six years, the story lines are still in the back of my mind!)

It's not sarcasm. If I made a comic it'd be miles better than yours I bet. :godot:

Also, can you maybe link me to that Francis Equitas comic?

I'm still reading this, just have not felt like posting much lately.

I would love to make something like a sprite comic if I could but I kinda...suck at making sprites and such. I personally would probably be better for doing something like a fangame.

EDIT: @Oliver: you can find the comic in this same section of the forums, it's just a few threads below this one.

Sorry folks, have had a busy week.

I owe you guys a week of updates, so I figured I would just finish case 2.

Let me know what you think and I'll see if its worth starting case 3 :will:

I really liked this series! Especially the Case 2!
So that's why... I wrote a blog post about it, for the "Let's talk about" series!

Thanks man, I appreciate this.

I do have one issue, though..

English is almost definitely my first language :basil:

In fact, I even study English literature and have done for years!

The grammatical issues stem from having to craft these comics on a daily basis, despite my hectic schedule. How I've managed to do this many is a miracle! :will:

The script writing process is this:

1- Read the pre-case script outline
2- Figure out how much of the story I can tell in 12 tiny text boxes
3- Write out the dialogue
4- Make the graphics which are needed to accompany the dialogue
5- Panic as you realise that the penned dialogue is too word for the text box
6- Cut the sentence down: a process which often sacrifices grammar, but its intention is to make sure that a comic goes up before the deadline. I do the best I can.

This is not War and Peace, folks. I am not Samuel Johnson. This is just a bit of the fun which I throw up on the internet. I sacrifice a lot of time to do this and am not able to spend any more time making second and third drafts for absolutely no pay.

Thanks for being on my side about the grammatical issues not being a factor which needs focusing on :will: It is easy for folks to sit back in their chairs and say "hmm, that sentence needs restructuring." It is difficult, however, to commit to writing, producing and doing artwork for a free daily web comic series.

I am trying to be a real as possible with you all by explaining my process, as I am sure knowing this will help future sprite comic makers on this site.

Heed my warning, future creators: it is a tough gig.

Anyway, enough of this. The case three intro is minutes away!

Well that case 3 description is making me really curious about this case...

Great work on case 2, btw! Though I have to admit that the culprit felt a little...bland, with how quick the final confrontation was and someting about the motive felt...off, like it wasn't explained well enough. Still, you did a good job, and I expect to see what you will do in the next cases!

Thanks man!

I was really pushed; I limited myself to a max of 70 comics, hence why a lot of the latest ones are extra long.

I was going for the shock factor: "the flash in the pan revelation" of the little old lady being the murderer, but everybody guessed it in her first scene haha :basil:

I will keep trying to be better!

Yeah, the identity of the murderer was so obvious that...I thought she might turn out to not be the murderer. No idea whether that makes it surprising or the complete opposite xD.

So I finally caught up! Finished reading case 2 and just started case 3.
Case 2 was really good! So I was right that Hubbard was the big bad!

In case 3 I think we've already met the serial killer of Ithaca XD

Thank you for all your nice comments! :will:

This is the penultimate case in my plans, so I had to step things up a bit! We have the FBI, we have crime writers, we have a serial killer and plenty of darkness to come.

Hold onto your socks, folks!

Hi guys; I initially intended to return to the comic in the New Year, but I have been working on other projects and University has been limiting my free time quite a bit. However, as a thank you for thinking about and asking about the progress of the comic, I intended to release a couple of updates today.

Unfortunately, here is the problem:

My writing process is thus:

1- I craft a general plot line for the case
2- I prepare any graphics I may need for that comic
3- I quickly write the dialogue for one comic panel based on what my notes say
4- I splice it all together and chuck it out there.

Here is the issue: I have just opened the script for episode 3 and saw that before the Christmas season, I did not get around to fleshing out the next comic's dialogue. As a consequence, all that stands is a series of detailed notes. This just means that I will have to reread the script in the hopes of understanding what these scripts mean in context.

This is exactly why I have always insisted that anyone planning a sprite comic should script it before hand :basil:

It will return one day folks!

Thanks for the support :will:

Progress is going for the next update, but slowly. Next time I'm here, it will be up.

It has been five months since the last update, but as promised, Robert Civil continues into 2016 with episode 18 of case 3: The Turnabout and the Pen.

It will take me a while to get back into the spirit of the characters and I will hopefully develop them over time and address the issues which the previous comics had.

Thank you for your patience, folks! :)

Edit: Does anyone know if I have stated Rachel's age in the comic?

Double update today, folks, as there is a trilogy of comics which are quite heavy on conversation - these two and tomorrow's update - plus, I wasn't satisfied with the background, so I owe you.

Enjoy, folks!
