Ten years later, it's finally officially over. Ten years.

See, the thing is, ten years is a loooong time. Long enough for someone like me to go from age 14 to age 24, and that's so huge of a gap in maturity it's hard to appreciate. It's been ages since I started this dumb little sprite comic as a filler for other dumber sprite comic stuff. Somehow it went on for 120-ish pages. Weeeeird.

And, like, I do miss these characters. Or, at least, Lucky and Rockurtle. The latter in particular ended up as my favorite early on - the snarky Shuckle, who soon enough I started making behind-the-scenes plans for. Such as her crushing on and eventually becoming girlfriends with Azula (the Marill that's appeared in a couple pages). And heck, I made that decision for her to be a lesbian well before I figured out I was a trans girl (and by extension, also a lesbian).

I am seriously making an official sort of coming-out post on the finale of a subpar sprite comic that, at best, like two people would actually view.

The point is! The point is, I've long since moved on from all this. Sure, Kirby's Dreamland Adventures is still making (slow) progress, but that's because there are some payoffs that I really really want to get to and I have a solid idea of what the story to get to them is. This comic? I don't think I ever knew what Shadow Cly's evil plan was meant to be. Heck, their existence is entirely based on a dumb idea I had from age 13 or so.

...But hey, I didn't want to leave off with a out-of-place-even-for-here OotS-styled-for-whatever-reason page, and also not with an April Fool's page. So here's this. Something that looks nice. Something that calls back to the long stretch of this comic.


...If you *are* reading this, please feel free to ask questions. About this comic, about me, about plot threads that fell through or oddities that cropped up or plans that never happened. All the questions.

That's all.

I like your nice drawn ending. I also like how you posted on my first day of summer break.

Though I didn't see until now...

@Warpstar: Glad to hear you liked it, at least.

and so my nostalgia finally ended And so, after so long, The Extreme Team is finally over. I know this comic is several months late, but give me a break, I was away from SmackJeeves for quite some time. (What is this? Where am I? Did I time travel?)

I'm going to miss this comic, to be honest. Sure it had massive gaps in time, a lack of any real characterization, extreme laziness, and suffered from an incredibly banal plot, but there was still some charm. That old, ancient, 2007 sprite comic charm.

I'll always feel nostalgic for this comic, but at least there are bigger and greater things out there now. Sprite comics -- and webcomics in general -- have long since evolved past what they used to be, and while I may not be there to see the result (since I suffer from extreme laziness as well), we'll always have the past to look back at. (...did any of this make sense, or did I just vomit out a big wall of nothing?)

Whatever happens next, I hope you'll be successful at it!

@FieryExplosion: Oh hey, always kinda weird but nice to hear from someone who was actually reading this.

I definitely understand the nostalgia for the long-gone sprite comic era that this spawned from - heck, it stands as a remnant of the general sprite comic style of the NSider forums, which has long since ceased to be. Especially with some of the old references to stuff from there (seriously, I'd be surprised if Jigglypuff and his Merry Band of Idiots has any archives anymore).

Glad you enjoyed it, and hope you get to enjoy plenty of better comics in the years to come.
