Crossroads Comics #129-PMD: Falling Twilight

It’s Tuesday which means it’s time for Crossroads Comics!

This week we’re taking a look at PMD: Falling Twilight. PMD: Falling Twilight is a webcomic based on a Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky Nuzlocke run done by the comic’s author, Silentstrike. It features the main characters of Dawn, a human turned Skitty, and Dusk, a Riolu who recently ran away from Wigglytuff’s Guild. The two become fast friends as they join the guild Dusk fled from, and it seems like nothing can stop them now, but is that really true? Or are their fates set it stone with no way to be changed? You’ll just have to read the comic to find out!

One thing that I really like about PMD: Falling Twilight is that our protagonist, Dawn, appears to be unable to speak or understand others. So even though Dusk is able to speak to her, Dawn is unable to understand anything that Dusk is saying. It makes for a very interesting dynamic and one that is often left unexplored in most Pokémon Mystery Dungeon comics. In fact, the only comic that I have ever seen broach the subject as well is another PMD: Sky inspired story, PMD: On Borrowed Time, and even this story, which originally made the protagonist, Rune, completely mute for the duration of the story, has now gifted Rune her voice after some time. Thus, it’s really exciting to see how this will work out and how the two will end up communicating with each other, especially during missions. Non-verbal communication via expressions, ears, etc. are going to be play a large role, and a comic is the perfect medium to explore that!

In addition, while this is meant to be a PMD: Sky inspired story, the author has stated that there will be some changes to the original narrative. Given what we’ve seen thus far, I’m excited to see what Silentstrike has in mind and how the nuzlocke is incorporated into all of this, if at all. Silentstrike also authors another webcomic titled Pokémon Quest for Truth that also looks rather interesting. Both of these stories have a lot of potential with the narratives and directions they are taking, and I’m looking forward to seeing where they do.

And without further ado, let’s check out the rest of this week’s lineup!
