Leftovers follows 19 y.o Asadi (center), as she spontaneously sets off on a transformative journey across Hoenn, discovering new friends and responsibilities along the way!




Hullo Hullo~ Before you start reading, i'd like to mention a few key things! First, this comic was started back in 2015 as an explicit way of improving my art and storytelling skills, and to this day (while its gained other importance, as well) it still remains just that despite my experimentation smoothing out over the years. So I hope you're along for the visual ride! That's part of the fun of webcomics, I think :)
I'd also like to point out that, despite not knowing what the future holds, I fully intend on completing this comic. I have a trajectory in mind, and it might take a while, but I feel like it might give a bit of relief knowing this in the face of so many unfortunately dropped comics in the past (arceus rest their souls).

That being said, I hope you enjoy what I have so far and what more's to come!

NOTE: chapter 6.5 and Meanwhile are extra bits of continuity that, while not mandatory reads, will help explain a few things going foward.

01 - 02 - 03 - Chapter 6.5 - Meanwhile in Granite...






Artist Note: Chapter 7 was being created during my busiest year of college, which dragged its production out to a little under a year to finish. So there's ALOT of style changes this chapter lol This is also the first time I made my pages longer, which is why there's so many parts. The rest of these chapters were individual pages combined for consistency a good 3 years later

01 - 02 - 03 - 04 - 05 - 06 - 07 - 08 - 09 - 10 - 11 - The Next Morning...

Full version of Steven's letter:

Steven,
Hello Son, I hope this finds you well. I know it’s been quite a while since we’ve talked,however I am almost certain you are successful in pursuit of your dreams. I know you may be urging me to get to the point, and so I will cease this rambling. For sake of confidentiality, I will refrain from going into details, but trouble seems to be brewing in Hoenn once more. You’ve probably come across such evidence in your travels of course.I wish to hold a meeting with a few others before more serious events get under way. The address will be written in your old man’s chicken scratch on the other side of this postcard. I truly hope you will be able to make it, as I look forward to seeing you again.
Sincerely and With Love,
Joseph

Yikes ;;V;;


FUN FACT: This is the first chapter where I start giving myself a page limit. This is also where I decided to go back and give each chapter "Issue Covers",
and when I started making reference dumps for all the art used during creation of the chapter :>

I just binged this whole comic. HOW did I miss this before? How I feel about it can be summed up as:
2470

I'm glad you decided to bring this over to the forums. You really seem to have a knack for comics, from what I can tell. This looks amazing from start to finish, while still showing improvement. Perhaps it's the stellar grasp on how to utilize the format? I never felt confused on how to read, and the setting was visually well established while not being too much.

Your characters are also super cute. There are quite a lot of them, too. I have a decent grasp on each of them from the time they arrive without spoiling much. There are a couple of loose threads here and there I can't even begin to imagine what is going to happen, but I am excited to find out.

Yo I'm so excited to see you're on the new forums!! I love all the character designs in this comic and it really stands out on it's own, especially with your art style. You have an eye for composition and I can tell you're setting up lots of character arcs early on. Can't wait to see more!

Oh my god, you reacted to my comic using a panel from my comic and i'm LIVING for it hahaaa. I'm so happy you enjoyed your read! <3 I really appreciate your knack for comics comment, as making pages feels like it comes naturally to me, but it's super interesting from an outsider perspective to read that you felt the same (hopefully that makes sense?) As for the world and characters, im glad you feel the charm. I try to shove as much in as possible and can't wait to introduce you all to many more people, places and plot points in the future!

Hello hello! Yess, I found this new forum from a reddit post SUPER randomly earlier today, so excited to poke around and see what's fresh and poppin lol
Thanks, in reference to the character designs! I actually redesigned the core 4 between the first and second half of chapter 7 (right before asadi goes down to the seafest), and there's been a big focus on design since then. Not sure if you've seen the chapter 10 concept art yet (since I was still updating when you and @Bug commented), but I have a feeling you'll like it :)
As for the character arcs...

you're absolutely right.....




Thanks for reading, guys!! :puff:

AAA, you're too kind. Thank you!
Also I'm really surprised at how many forum members I already know from DA 😮

Heheheheh, I see what you did there > v >
And yess, there's a surprising amount of pages already available for how few numerical chapters there are (uploading this, the whole time I was like 8O )
But there's gonna be ALOOT more. So stay tuned! :wooper:

She's like a sea urchin. Tough and prickly on the outside, but delicate and easily wounded if hit the wrong way. Please handle gently.

Wh! I was getting really caught up in all of it and then I caught up and now there isn't any more! HEY! That's downright unfair.

I really enjoyed everything I've read so far, though... worried about Asadi being able to handle her rambunctious little team, though, that's for sure. There are a lot of colorful characters on there, haha, and hoo buddy they are clashin'. Feels like everything ends up harder when you wait nine more years to do it, ahaha.

@Jimcloud Daawwhh, thanks! Don't worry, im hard at work on the next chapter ;) As for Asadi and her team..yeahhh, they've got quite a ways to go haha. Colorful characters, indeed ppbbttt Glad you enjoyed your journey so much up to this point!

Also guys, BIG UPDATE/OVERSIGHT. In originally posting this thread I completely left out one of the most important pages of Chapter 9 (in case you all wondered why a certain jump happened). I thought I had this page on there, but alas I have uploaded it now. For the sake of you not having to read the whole thing again and play "spot the difference", here is the page on its own:

This takes place after Asadi passes out from seeing Artemis and right before the scene of her in the room talking to her mom. Enjoy!
