Okay everyone, buckle up! I have a lot to announce here!

FIRST OFF, The comments on the last page have made me SO HAPPY! There's so much speculation and I can't respond to like, any of it without spoiling things but I seriously love how invested you all are! ^_^ Thank you! It means the world to me.

Also, the first panel of that page is now available in the Dot X Store as a pillow and all sorts of other things!

SECONDLY This page marks the end of the first section of the ball chapter, and so I feel this is an appropriate time for me to take a quick week-long break before jumping right into section two! The next page to go up will be on Friday, September 2nd

Looking for something to keep you busy until then? Look no further, as I am proud to finally announce:


So quite a few of you correctly guessed that my next project would involve Seamers, and here it is! Unlike Dot X and SkyJam, this is a project that ALL OF YOU can be directly involved in!

Don't know what Seamers are? Want to know more about this project? Rather than explain it all here, please click the image above or this link to go DIRECTLY to the "About/FAQ" page of the SDCP! Give it a read and see if you want to be involved- (I think and hope you will!!)

The SDCP will not interfere with either DotX or SkyJam's schedules, (other than DotX taking this one week off but that's more of a coincidence,) so this really is now a third pillar of big projects I'm doing online!


Between now and the next Dot X update, we'll be doing TWO streams over on SkyJam!

We're playing No Man's Sky This Friday, August 26th @ 9PM EST!

Join James, BudKev and I as we name everything we see based on chat suggestions and probably puns!

And as our final stream of the summer, come and battle with/against me in Splatoon on Monday, August 29th @ 7PM EST!

We'll be hosting a private friends-list match so we can all battle together! Simply send me a friend request on your WiiU, (My NNID is "Hetreagod") and we'll be splatting each other in no time!

WHEW. has been updated with the SDCP, as well as SkyJam's social media accounts! ...Does anyone ever go to

I'm taking any and all questions here in the comments! ^_^
One more time, please check out the SDCP!

This is actually the first time I actually really looked at the hair coming from behind Miles' hat and now I'm really curious about what he'd look like if he weren't wearing it.

Wow, ok I thought it was Revolving Light that was the project, but regardless you can expect some entry's of mine (hopefully) soon!

I actually go to a lot, it was quite the suprise to find this amazing new poject. You're working on three different things all at once! How do you do it?!

1. Really good page. I love the art work. 2. Seamers sounds super duper cool! Although it is similar to Pokémon (which isn't a bad thing) it is different enough for it to be its own thing. 3. Can't wait for the next two live streams. I'll try to be there for both but I might not be. I missed like half of the destiny live stream and I was super sad. But the main point of this comment is to say keep up the good work. You can see your passion in all of your works and it makes them that much better. Thanks for being so cool.

Wait, so is Miles allowing Speedy to date Pudding, and given up one trying to kill anyone she dates?

Hey Skylar, I want Dotx merch, but I also want something one-of-a-kind, would it violate any rules foir me to make a custom DotX shirt? I'm probably gonna buy a bunch of merch anyway, especially if my parents let me upgrade my phone (I have the money!). Anyway, LOVE your work. Also, Explode7 is my IRL friend, so yeah.

Thank you, and also, thank you!! ^_^ I'm excited too!

It's messy! REALLY MESSY! I don't know if he'll be without it during this chapter, but eventually you'll see!

Awesome! I look forward to them! : D Revolving Light is something I still will do something with, just not yet! Gotta figure out what exactly I wanna do with it!
For your second comment, yes to the first part, ambiguous to the second!

Don't worry... That week is already over! >_< And yes! I like nice people too!
Speaking of nice people, thanks for recommending the comic to Patcat127!!!

I have no idea!! It's very tiring, and I have very little time to do anything else but I really like to make things! So it's mostly working!?! AGH! Thanks for going to! :D

Thank YOU for being so cool! I really appreciate how supportive you are of all my works! Let's not let anyone know how much you destroyed me during the Splatoon 1v1s...!

Sterling hey! Welcome back! :D You KNOW I'd love to see some fanart, don't be shy! Thank YOU for reading my comic! It's worth all the time and effort when you all read it! ^_^ YOU HAVE A GREAT DAY ALSO.

WOW! Thank you so much!! I generally manage this by working from when I wake up until I fall alseep! Some days I eat as well! :D The vacation was fantastic, thank you!

Hello and welcome to the comic!! Okay okay, DotX Merch! So truely one-of-a-kind designs are saved for my Patreons, but I DO take suggestions for the store if it's something directly from the comic! Let me know what you had in mind and we'll work something out! Questions are ALWAYS welcome!
As for Blue, what do YOU think they are?
