No new comics today, but some announcements.
(New comics soon, though!)

If you're new to Dragon Mango, the story may make slightly
more sense if you start at the Beginning.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

January 1st, 2021 - Happy New Year!

A new comic should be along soon, with any luck. Also, I'm trying to figure out how to convert the various Flash-based animations in the comics into something that'll work in HTML5. Not to mention ponies. Hopefully another update to follow shortly, but in the meantime - happy new year! May this one be better than the last!

December 23rd, 2020 - Wow, what a year it's been, eh?

Due to real-life issues, I haven't been able to update the comic in quite awhile. But all that's going to change very soon; the beginning of next year, we'll start out on another chapter that will tie together quite a few loose ends that have been hanging for far too long!

Speaking of things that have been hanging for far too long, a number of people have been asking about the Pony Platforming Project, and what the future holds for it now that Adobe (and Microsoft) are planning to shut down Flash support on the web. Well, I'm pleased to report that I've already begun compiling the original games into both executable files and zipped flash compilations, so that people will be able to continue playing them. I'm also releasing the source, so anyone who wants to create mods or their own games can do so (as well as laugh at my awful spaghetti code!)

That'll be coming officially sometime in the next week or so, so please look forward to it. In the meantime, early releases of some of the games are already available. And speaking of pony games, there's a long-forgotten sequel to one of them that's very near completion... I never imagined it would take SO long to do it that Flash itself would die before it was released, but that's life. News on that to follow soon, too!

But all of that is for the future. In the meantime, please enjoy your annual dose of Dragon Mango-themed Christmas nonsense! Happy Holidays, and stay warm!

May 9th, 2020 - And with that, at long last, the longest chapter in all of Dragon Mango's history comes to a conclusion!

Believe it or not, quite some thought went into exactly which note to end this chapter on... there are still a LOT of loose threads dangling in the main plot, of course. I ended up going with the mention of the "Great Iron Knight" because it leads directly into the next chapter, in which someone we haven't seen in QUITE some time finally gets to do something.

I was really tempted to end the story with Lecithin in orbit... but as you may have guessed, he won't be showing up again for some time. While we'll be seeing the so-called Great Iron Knight VERY soon!

...Well, depending on update speed, of course...

Ahem. Anyway, hope you enjoy the comic!
