Hi everyone!

I just wanted to make a quick journal to explain how the archive comics and the newly established canons work in The Mishaps of Dan.

The Regular Comics (+The Lost Strips):
The regular comics are the comics that either feature a character from a fighting game, or are comics wherein Dan, Sakura, Cody, Blanka and Pyrrha make up the "Saikyo Squad". They are not specially labeled like the Archive Comics and the Knights of Cameloon, and feature a character portrait next to the title. At this point, the Regular comics are where most of the suggestions and requests by the readers go (which is why I included the Lost Strips in this group). The events of the Archive Comics do not affect the events of the Regular Comics (the two are not linked because the Archive Comics have been written and the Regular comics are being written).

The Archive Comics:
In the very first archive comic, it was described as: "A mini series similar to the Lost Strips, the Archive Comics are comics that are from my older, original collection of Mishaps comics. Most of them have some stark differences from the normal series".

The archive comics are stories that were created for the original series and because of the original comic's writing the series branched off to form another canon. Here's a good way break it down: the timelines of the Regular Comics and the Archive Comics split after The Mishaps of Dan 20 and in the Archive comics, Cody, Pyrrha, Mizuki, and the Armstrongs are not recurring characters.  Yes, most of the time these comics are redrawn now to ensure quality, but the actual writing remains relatively untouched. I'm happy that people are throwing out ideas and suggestions for what should happen in the archive comics, but the story for the archive comics has already been written, and most of what happens in the archive comics is play-by-play as it was originally written (which inevitably leads to certain plot holes, like Jade living in the dojo).

Knights of Cameloon:
The Knights of Cameloon takes place in a separate timeline than the Regular Comics and the Archive Comics (which is why the Fallout 4 Comic [The Mishaps of Dan 83] happens and the Archive Comics keep happening during the Knights of Cameloon, furthermore, because Knights of Cameloon pages require more planning than the other two, the Archive comics were used to compensate for a lack of content). The events of Knights of Cameloon are written so it will follow a set of plot points, similar to the Archive Comics. Here's another good way break it down: the Regular Comic follows a timeline wherein The Mishaps of Dan 74 does not happen. Finally, since characters like Aksurus exist in the Knights of Cameloon world, they won't appear in the main series.

I hope this journal cleared it up for anyone who still has questions about why I seem to turn down requests that I get on the Archive Comics. I'm trying to come off as mean, it's just how the Archive Comics work and these suggestions will be considered for the Regular Comics.

I'm on Instagram now!:
Anyway, I've decided to update my profile since its two years old. So I'm just going to go ahead and re-introduce myself as timberking, the author of the Mishaps of Dan series, Zephyr and a series of smaller illustration projects such as Cyndy 2.001 and Mark and Elaine. My work varies in style and can go from east to west quickly. I do do commissions when I have the opportunity and just contact me if you're interested. See you guys later!
