It consumes graphite and word processors. If it is standing still, something is wrong.
I love all how pidgey-filled your main post is--!! Super cute.

This Pokemon can sometimes be found meticulously editing and re-editing it's own content, never satisfied with the results.
Aahhh I love that last battle scene with the sand-attack pidge and fire lizard!

I always mean to comment on your comic but never seem to get around to it, so I guess this is as good a time as any!~ I absolutely adore Red and Blue's interactions the whole way through, and I gotta say, your version of Blue is probably my favorite out of all I've seen~

And of course you can never have too many Pidgey~

Ah! Thank you everyone who replied, I read and cherished you all but also I've been hecks of busy with the end of this school semester, and on top of that, I have bad news:

Due to work-related strain, I have developed a numb spot on my thumb, some kinda nerve thing. Doctor says that to give it a chance to heal on its own, I need to not draw (and other taxing things on my grip) for at least the next two weeks, and then check up on it. So! Kurukkoo will definitely not be updating for at least the next two weeks bc I sure can't do lineart and shading left handed! So sorry for yet more delay!

Oof, ouch. Hopefully things heal up correctly on your end?? Nerve damage is a really terrifying thing, especially as an artist. AND with your career.
I can await the next update patiently, however.

This e-ghost sleeps until every Nintendo Directs. If they don't announce Kid Icarus: Uprising 2: Underworld Boogaloo, then it goes back to sleep.
After some time of not reading due to college, I've finally caught up again and !!!
This comic is just getting better and better with each new update!!
I love Sandy so much, such a nice add to this family of babies and Bulbasaur. And I knew this is going to be basically a Pidgeylocke at some point, but seeing this many good birbs now is all I needed in a nuzlocke comic
Thank you for your life, Kadew, looking forward to more Kurukkoo!💜💜💜

Edit: Saw the thing about the thumb, I hope it'll eventually heal. Take all of the time you need, still looking forward to healed up Kurukkoo
Take care😭💜

I'm not sure if I actually commented on this run back in Zeta/Tapa (I feel like I did...) but now is as good a time as any!

I can't tell you how many times I've burst out laughing while reading this. Your facial expressions are so well-drawn and hilarious, it made for such good reading! And I'm loving how even without talking, your Pokemon still have such lively personalities. And Blue and Red are great characters so far and I'm loving their relationship and I can only tell it's gonna get more wild as they go on.

I'm sorry to hear about your thumb though! Hopefully it gets better soon!

It is very likely that this Pokemon is currently crying over anime.

I admit I fell off the wagon for a bit from the Zeta/Tapatalk version. Iiiiiin fact, I'm pretty sure the last time I'd commented, we still had Zeta.

So, uh, let's get back into it, shall we? :V

Where I left off, we were just introduced to Red's soon-to-be-nidoran, so from there, let's just say it's nice to see things kinda sorta taking a turn for the better. I say "kinda sorta taking a turn for the better" because Red and Blue just have great chemistry, and it really shows when they have a chance to interact regularly. It's cute to see just how much of a novice at all of this Red is and just how much she more or less stumbles into little successes. (Her most recent catches, for example.) But at the same time, this plays well with Blue's easily frustrated personality, with that mixture of experience and arrogance. What Blue's saying actually is pretty solid advice (Why would you train two pidgey and a pokémon so fragile it'll struggle as you go on?), but it's really no wonder that Red is so hesitant to listen to it, what with that smug attitude. It's no doubt that these two will only grow stronger the longer they're forced to stay together. Blue will gradually let down his guard, grow up, and learn how to be a little friendlier by being forced to help Red, and Red will grow more experienced and less stubborn by being forced to have Blue's advice thrown about constantly. Also? It's just nice to see that Blue's already apparently forgiven Red for the whole Butts thing. Mostly, haha.

In any case, with Pewter looming ahead (past the rival battle, anyway), it should be fun to see how these two handle it. Maybe they'll be knocked down a couple of pegs each. Who knows? 8)

Omg this comic is so cute and I love it. Red and Blue are great rivals and I'm actually really happy their traveling together for the sake of seeing them banter at each other all the time. They're adorable and I love them and you're doing such a good job developing their Pokemon's personalities. Pudge is the cute master and will rule us all and I happily accept that. Can't wait to see how the first gym battle goes.

I fell behind on a lot of things during the shift to tapatalk, and Kurukkoo! was one of them. As soon as I saw you'd reposted here, I had to jump on it - and I can't tell you how much fun I had catching back up on this! It's been so fun to hear you talking about your characters in writechat and then seeing them come alive here, and man do they come alive! I've chuckled at nearly every page, you have a great sense of humor that seems almost effortless. Have to echo Dusty that your facial expressions are excellent, and like, they honestly sell the humor even more to me. I'm loving the relationship between Red and Blue, and all the other Pallet Town NPCs you've introduced so far (you have one of my favorite Professor Oaks ever, ngl) And the Pokemon. Pudge is a gem but I live for Bulbasaur's grumpy expressions.

Everything about this is great, and I'm so excited for the next parts. Hope your thumb feels better, soon! ;;

Hedonism and schadenfreude, packed into one cute lil box!
Yaaay finally caught up on kurookuukoruukoo...the bird one!

Man this comic just BLEEDS expression. First it was the funny faces (pudge is a discord emote for a reason) then it was the hands (I love how red holds her 3 pokeballs between her fingers a few pages back) and just now I notice how good the body language is too! I’m hoping as the comic goes on the characters develop their own body language style because who doesn’t love subtle characterization like that? I think you’ll be able to pull it off REALLY well.

Aaaaaa blue is such a me character I love him so much he’s my son now 🥰 he’s just so realistic yknow? You can FEEL the teenage insecurity slowly bubbling up inside him. And reds such a great foil. She can punch blue back without feeling like a hypocrite. I know they’re not, but they feel like genuine siblings. I think they might be my favorite pair of protagonistsI’ve read in a nuzlocke ever.

Aw geez y'all are too much, so many comments with so much love to reply to. Time to try out this multiquote thing. *cracks knuckles* *breaks all my fingers*
oh shit that's not good, hopefully 2 weeks will be enough. I imagine thats bad time with finals and all! be careful and dont overdo it
Yeah it wasn't great, mixing that with finals. At least typing wasn't affected! Would've been way worse if I was still an art major, can you imagine? The most frustrating part was finishing finals and not being able to immediately launch into drawing all day.
Oof, ouch. Hopefully things heal up correctly on your end?? Nerve damage is a really terrifying thing, especially as an artist. AND with your career.
I can await the next update patiently, however.
Things are healing alright, it's gotten better and not worse, at least. Still not 100%, but as long as I can draw, I'm fine with a few tingles.
Ouch, hope everything turns out alright. Get well soon and take your time resting, you deserve it!~
Let me just say, being told I have time free but without being able to draw isn't restful in the slightest. I was going stir crazy not being able to comic!
After some time of not reading due to college, I've finally caught up again and !!!

I'm glad you've caught up! Sandy is a gem, so enthusiastic. Especially about sand attack. Maybe one day I should do a proper pidgeylocke, only pidges allowed, or maybe just only normal/flying...
I'm not sure if I actually commented on this run back in Zeta/Tapa (I feel like I did...) but now is as good a time as any!

I'm sorry to hear about your thumb though! Hopefully it gets better soon!
It makes me so happy to hear that people actually laugh at my humor! I just write what I find amusing to write/draw, never sure if it'll land or not. And I dunno if I even could draw this without giving the pokemon personality, otherwise it'd be so hard to draw them! Blank no expression is actually the hardest thing of all.
kadewwww i love your dumb kids so so much, they banter off each other so well and watching them get up to hijinks always leaves me with a big grin on my face!! and all their pokemon got so much personality too, i just wanna scoop them all up in my arms and RUN

No! Come back with all my pokemon! I need them for entirely good and wholesome deathless purposes!

Oh dang that's white a while, the nidoran catching was like a year ago at least. Glad you got the chance to catch up on a real forum software! I love the way you've put words to Red and Blue's dynamic, that's exactly it! Beginners luck vs experience and frustration. Both kinda stubborn brats. As for Pewter and what looms ahead... you'll see ;3c
Omg this comic is so cute and I love it. Red and Blue are great rivals and I'm actually really happy their traveling together for the sake of seeing them banter at each other all the time. They're adorable and I love them and you're doing such a good job developing their Pokemon's personalities. Pudge is the cute master and will rule us all and I happily accept that. Can't wait to see how the first gym battle goes.
I for one would gladly accept Pudge as benevolent overlord, but alas. Pudge isn't one who is inclined to be a leader. Too flighty. I'm really hoping to get through first gym battle by the end of the year! It's a big milestone.
I fell behind on a lot of things during the shift to tapatalk, and Kurukkoo! was one of them.

Oh man thank you so much! The expressions are nearly as fun to draw as they are to look at tbh, and same goes for writing the dumb banter of my dumb kids. I figure, if I'm having fun and what I write amuses me, there's a good chance it'll amuse others too. And re: prof Oak, I'm planning a short interlude comic between chapters 0 and 1 coming up quickly that will feature him and Daisy. The Pallet Town crew isnt' going to be forgotten!
This run is adorable! I love the characterization and the art style, and it's refreshing to see someone else who doesn't use dupes clause.
Thanks! I don't think I really ever considered dupes clause as a thing when I started this run. And I'm sure glad I didn't, otherwise I wouldn't have this great theme of So Many Birds to go off of!
Yaaay finally caught up on kurookuukoruukoo...the bird one!

Man this comic just BLEEDS expression. First it was the funny faces (pudge is a discord emote for a reason) then it was the hands (I love how red holds her 3 pokeballs between her fingers a few pages back) and just now I notice how good the body language is too!

She can punch blue back without feeling like a hypocrite. I know they’re not, but they feel like genuine siblings. I think they might be my favorite pair of protagonistsI’ve read in a nuzlocke ever.
Ever since I figured out the secret to drawing hands not like garbage I've had fun making them part of the expressions, I'm glad that's been picked up on! And body language too, I'll try hard to live up to your expectations. Everyone holds themselves kinda differently, y'know? And gosh it's so amazing to hear that Blue is really resonant with you. Favorite ever, gosh, that's so nice of you to say. Very high praise, there are so many good ones out there.

And with that taken care of (I love you all and your comments so much really thank you for all your well wishes), I have good news! As of last wednesday, I am allowed to draw again! My thumb isn't 100% yet, so I gotta be careful to take breaks at least every 30 minutes, but it's just kinda pain-tingly instead of actually numb, so that's a big improvement! I can draw! I can make comic!

And to that end, I'm going to celebrate with a stream to finally finish this page that has been sitting nearly done since the 24 hour stream. Let's try out this swanky new streaming embed feature
Stream is over now! Expect the page sometime later this evening, for now I need dinner.

Funnily enough, I actually haven't had dinner yet. But a frozen pizza is in the oven, with enough time that I can post this because wow is posting new pages nicer now. I can host them right here. Just open the gallery embed and select! I'm living in the future now and it's amazing.
