Sprite comics by their very nature necessitate credit. The realm in which a sprite comic-maker moves is filled with the images and the ideas of other artists. I owe a great deal to many people, especially as I've twisted many fictional worlds to my designs. On top of that, I've used the work of many internet spriters in the process of illustration. So, for reasons of both legality and gratitude, here are some names that very much deserve to be mentioned.
The following copyrighted worlds, fictions, and concepts are herby recognized, along with all characters related to each: The Pokemon series belongs to Nintendo, Game Freak, and the Pokemon Company. The Legend of Zelda series also belongs to Nintendo. The Mega Man series belongs to Capcom. The Lord of the Rings and all related works belong to J.R.R.Tolkien, and perhaps New Line Cinema. Trogdor and all related characters and concepts belong to Mike and Matt Chapman of Homestarrunner.com. Some characters and ideas have been created by David Anez and Benjamin Underwood.
The sprites and backgrounds of various video games have been used in Reporterz. This is by no means a complete list, but I will attempt to add to it whenever possible. These include, but are not limited to: Chrono Trigger, the Kirby Series, the Mega Man X series, and the Final Fantasy Series, as well as all videogames already mentioned.
I would also like to thank various spriting resources which have helped me create Reporterz, along with a number of spriters whose work has been used as a base for new ideas. Spriting resources include but are not limited to: The Spriter's Resource, Sprites Inc, and The People's sprites. Notable spriters and sprite obtainers include but are not limited to: Maneko, Aiken, Xaiden, Mjrzak, Debug, Wisest Pikachu, Gundam Remake, and SemiJuggalo.
Special thanks go to my host, ComicGenesis, for use of this webspace, to Ping Teo, for a large part of the website design, and to the creator of Bob and George, David Anez, for giving me permission to use his original characters and ideas.
One of the things I love most is reinterpreting and reinventing ideas. It thrills me to say, "But what if Fictional Work X were altered this way? What might result? And why?" So I'm truly grateful to all the companies and artists that have allowed me to continue dreaming and creating. I make reference to their works out of respect for the genius they've put into them, and I hope that by conveying how much I enjoyed these works, I encourage others to do the same.
If there are any names that deserve to appear here but aren't present, please let me know immediately, and I'll add them at once.
I hope (but am aware that I cannot guarantee) that all original concepts and ideas will be recognized as my creations. Thanks for reading!
