Welcome, one and all, to the brand new Kirby Adventure! Some of you have seen it already, but regardless, let me officially introduce you to the newly redesigned Kirby Adventure website!! I spent the past four days straight working on this, and I must say it was time well spent.
The biggest change, I believe, would be the fact that the middle section of the site has been lengthened. With it wider than before, what does this mean? It means I can go back to doing comics that are three panels wide again! Now that they no longer break the layout, I'll be using panel layouts like this more often. Heck, the last time I did a six-paneler like this was comic 367! For some reason, it took me until Master of Puppets to realize that vertically aligning was better with the old layout. Now, not so much.
You guys, however, would likely argue the most telling difference is the updated menu! I've been using the same buttons for all that menu stuff since 2010, so it was high time for an upgrade! For the most part, they're all basically the same with just visual improvements, however, some things did change about them! On the top menu, Shadik and Saia's buttons got switched, and Hali got replaced by Ryka. The next comic and latest comic buttons' arrows got color-swapped as well, and all the arrows were given borders and embossing.
The change that took the longest to create were the brand new segment select buttons! Now organized by chapter, the special new layout I created for them took ages to code properly, but I got it working! It's just as functional as it was before, but now it looks way nicer, there's more variety in it, and you even get little teasers for upcoming segments! Let the speculation commence!
Now, the comic pages aren't the only thing that have changed! For one thing, new characters have been added to the cast page! I also changed those images' host site from Photobucket to Smack Jeeves, meaning that all the cast pages now function properly rather than Photobucket screwing up the links!
The Links page has also been updated! I did away with the custom banners I had made due to them being too much of a hassle, I rewrote every description, and I've even added a ton of new comics! If you want to have your comic put up on the page, hit up the latest news post I made about that!
Finally, even the Fan Art page got a total redesign! The buttons now actually label who drew the image, a much-needed addition if you ask me, and some of the buttons have more appropriate cropped sections used. The art contest entries are also better organized, and all the 3rd contest entries were added. What's more, there are three completely new pictures on the page, one by CaymamCruncher and the other two by Spicyice101!
So yeah! It was a lot of work, but definitely well-worth it! I may not have the best comic ever, but it's undeniable that I put a lot of effort into this thing.
As far as this new segment goes, I think you guys will enjoy it. It's going exactly where you probably think it's going.

Geez its been awhile since i got a update on a comic (3 days is 3 months waiting time.)
Nice job with the layout it looks nice but a small problem I can see happening in the future is complaints about small icons, I Don't have that problem but i can see other people having it.

WHOA that's a huge change.

Oh look a new comic lemme just HOOOOOOLY F-
........Anyways. This new layout is great! My only complaint is that the comment text is kinda....tiny. It'd be nice if it was a bit bigger, but that's just me.
Hey, and you even put my comic in the links! That was very nice of you, we might get some fresh meat..er *cough* new authors to baffle.

Your complaints have been heard, and heck, even I was having second thoughts about that text size. But hey, enlargement is easy! This should be better.

Speaking of the Links page, one or two of the images seem to be broken.
I really like this new layout, though! You did a real bang-up job with it.

Oh wow, the new site looks great Ulti! Only issue I really have is that the bold text makes the comments a little hard to read. It's especially problematic due to some people liking to bold their text manually for emphasis. Does that make sense, or am I just rambling? I might be rambling. That's possible. Er....
Onto the subject of the actual comic strip: OH BOY, HERE WE GO!
