So, uh, hi. It's been a while, hasn't it? Much longer than I anticipated, honestly.
What can I really say? I lost my motivation for a while, and then when I started working on comic-related content again, I was focused on stuff that wasn't this. Honestly, the only reason I found the time to make this comic was the fact that I noticed that we hit a special milestone for Kirby Adventure: 500 fans!
So, thanks guys! It's great to see so many of you guys like my dumb little Kirby sprite comic that I started on a whim.
Anyways, I'll admit that the hiatus I talked about in the latest news post isn't quite over. I'm going to likely make page 600 sometime soon, but after that, there'll be another hiatus. This time, it's not because of motivation, though. I've just got too much to work on, honestly, and the idea I have for the next segment is so grand that I want to be able to truly focus on it and make it as good as I can, and I can't do that when also mass-recording videos, working on the kinks and beginnings of my new comic, and the biggest thing of all: getting started at college. So, yeah, I don't have the time necessary right now to work on the extensive pages that I have planned.
I won't be entirely gone, though. I just won't be working with Kirby Adventure specifically. I'll still be uploading frequent Let's Plays (since the last page, I've done serieses of Spyro: A Hero's Tail, a co-op run of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Croc: Legend of the Gobbos, and I've just started up one on Sonic Adventure 2: Battle. There are also weekly updates every thursday for The Skrawlers, and I'm also decently active on Twitter and tumblr. I've also been working hard on a brand new comic, a Choose Your Own Adventure starring my own original world and characters called Shards of Krino, so you can follow that and have a part in the story if you're interested.
As far as the Fan Art Contest that I started goes, I'll extend the deadline of it to September 7th, giving you guys 5 more weeks to draw something for that if you're interested, or make a new image if you've improved artistically in the past five months. I don't have very many submissions for it, so there's a good chance of winning if you enter!

Ah, so I guess Him was banned from the new Powerpuff Girls reboot, and is now trying to kill Kirby. Makes sense.Kebi_in_your_pants,

I was hoping he would've put Zykan in the corner, how disappointing.Redkirby,

2 things. 1) Hooray! You're back! 2) I know I have no impact on this, but if that "knight" doesn't get what he deserves, I'm going to... Hmm... Well, I'll do something.Luigi_96,

Kirby Adventure updated? Next you'll be telling me that pigs are flying.
I kid, good to see this comic back!
(And good that the contest's still open, I still have the same idea from months ago, but by now I think I might be able to do a better version that what I had planned...)

1. So after comic 600, a hiatus but not due to motivation—rather, a lack thereof. I'm content that you have recovered, UY…
Cherry the Puffball,
2. *occurrences, if you'd like to correct that.
3. The contest deadline has been extended, huh? Hmmmmmmmm…I may give one a whirl—sorry those who punned in the previous comic pages, but I won't fall into the trap—, but I may have some difficulty in finding something to dr-…!!! Nope, I have an idea now. Alright, I'll probably be entering. But wait, I don't have a character prepared at the moment (besides Dark Mario Kirby) if I do win (though I doubt it).
4. Now a question…what is your intended major (if you've made that decision)?
5. Hooooo, boy, college. Don't put unnecessary stress on yourself if you can help it. Side note, if you mention college in any of your future comics, I will most likely type advice—some of which you might not need, but I'll probably never know.

Hooray! The MSG was not Zykan!ForestFire,

@Ultimate Yoshi: I hate to burst your bubble, but you don't exactly have 500 fans yet. Months ago I switched accounts but didn't unfave anything. So you have 499 at most.DarkMario1000,
August 3rd, 2015, 11:57 pmReply
If you want to be that specific
@ForestFire, then technically he has probably even less than 499 since people come and go. Same goes for other comics as well. *shrugs*Planetbox (Guest),

It's so hard to state in words how excited I am. I don't care if there may be another hiatus soon, I'm just glad there's at least one new comic! This is awesome!Jarkes,

I'll be honest, in the past few months, I've lost interest in a lot of the comics that I used to read frequently. I'm massively behind on 20TK and KDA, and honestly, I'm not even sure I WANT to catch up on those. This, The Dee Army, and a few others are the only comics around here that I'm still interested in.
...Which is why it's really, REALLY lame that there's no way to set things up so that you get email notifications for new pages of your Favorite comics.

Ohey, this is back...kinda. Was beginning to wonder why this took so long to start up after the resumption of your other various projects.
No worries about the hiatus- we've already weathered one, after all, and in the meantime we can whet our appetites with Krino and Skrawlers. Good luck at college, and keep it up!

@Jarkes: Same here, actually. I guess this has been kind of a slow time for kirby sprite comics.Rendum,

hmmm... I've been waiting a long time for this, shame it has to go so soon..., also @Ultimate Yoshi where do I send my pictures?TheGreenShyGuy,

I'm guessing this was the final comic in Infiltration. Good to see you back.Syogren,
August 5th, 2015, 10:26 pmReply
Anyway, glad to see you're back, Ulti, if only for a couple comics. You are right, college takes priority over this, although hopefully you'll get through your first year better than I will. If I may, I'd like to emphasize the importance of social skills, as the lack of such was one of the main things making my first year harder than it needed to be. It seems you have a good grip on that though, but if you don't, I recommend seeing what you can do about that. Either way, good luck.

Ultimate Yoshi is back, baby! Fans of KA, celebrate!Light and Shadow,

Kirby's back! WOOOO!
1. I'm glad you don't just want to abandon this like so many other authors on smackjeeves during a hiatus.
2. We waited this long I'm sure we can keep waiting just a little bit longer.
3.College! Congrats Ulti hope everything goes great for you there. Here's some advice, don't daydream. I went to college for a semester and flunked out because I just couldn't focus. Heck my avatar is the culmination of my Web Design major.

@Light and Shadow: We've all been waiting over 4 months for this, so waiting a few days will be no problem.Mimistarlish (Guest),

I asked this on another comic didn't get an answer from anybody. The question was "Of all the Kirby villains who laugh which laugh is your favorite (Master Hand and Crazy Hand count because they were in Amazing Mirror)?" My personal favorite is Queen Sectonia from Triple Deluxe. Her almost playful-sounding giggle comes off as legitimately creepy for me.Redkirby,
August 13th, 2015, 12:16 pmReply
@Light and Shadow: I'd say Marx Soul's laugh is my favorite.WaddleDeeKing (Guest),
August 16th, 2015, 9:05 amReply
@Light and Shadow: If their Smash versions count, I believe King Dedede's in Smash 4 is hilariously trolly.Light and Shadow,
August 16th, 2015, 10:30 amReply
@WaddleDeeKing: If the Character was in Kirby he counts the only ones that don't count are cameos from other games. Like I said The Hands count because they were bosses in AM. Whereas the cameos from Kirby 3 would not even if the animations imply laughter. So yeah he counts.Warpstar,

Who here knows how to put sprites in a comic? And make customs.Light and Shadow,

@Warpstar: What kinda sprites are you trying to use? (ex:sonic, kirby, mario, etc.)Warpstar,

@Warpstar: I can't help you with your original question it was more a curiosity of what you were going to use. I'm sure you can find an answer if you search it on the internet. I personally enjoy looking at video tutorials to help me with my questions.Warpstar,

@Light and Shadow: Ok what about using a sprite to blend in with a background.Luigi_96,
