A little update + some questions

Semester finals are coming up, and several of my colleges are going to see my first semester of senior year on my transcript so I've been busy studying (which is why I haven't had time to work on the comic recently). Fortunately, since none of them are going to see my SECOND semester, I can just sit back and say to myself "New goal: C minus."

Anyway, I wanted to ask everyone a few questions:

1. I've been thinking about changing the name of my series (cause let's be honest: (PMD): Mysterious Dungeons ain't exactly the most creative name around). Then again, it might make it harder to find, and a sudden name change might shock some people. Should I go ahead with it anyway?

2. I'm considering dividing the Prologue into chapters (rather than keeping it a prologue) because a 78 page long (and counting!) prologue is kind of ridiculous. There are several good cut-off points regardless. The downside of doing this is that I would have to draw up several cover pages, re-organize my comics on DA and SJ, and reformat some things about my site before I can create further updates - all of which would be a very time consuming process. Besides, the main story is supposed to take place in the real world, rather than the dream, so if they were chapters rather than a prologue, it would make for a rough transition (and the twist end I've got planned for the prologue would be all the more jarring).

3. Going on from point 2 and 1, since there are a number of problems associated with a name-change and a chapter-reformat, an alternative would be to have the prologue be it's own series, and for the main story to become a sequel series to the prologue. This sound like a good idea?

Thank you in advance to anyone who answers! :D

As no one has said anything yet, I will say as a massive fan that it would be better to see this comic move along as covers aren't as important as the story itself. for a name change, this comic is basically what people look for when searching for PMD's so I say just add a title in the middle.

Pokemon mystery dungeon:
Explorers of Myst
prologue
born again

Oh and having the prolouge as a second series would definitely work, as long as you put up a page saying to swap over at the end and there was a story before with the new comic

Hmm...
I believe changing the name would be okay. If you changed it, it wouldn't change much, just keep the PMD part...

With Chapters, if you want to put the prologue into it, we can all wait for updates, since being able to access something is one of the most important details.

how long is the prologue? If it's not very long, I'm not sure you should make a sequel.

From how its going though, it seems it'll be a story in itself...so perhaps you should!

  How about Pokemon: Explorers of the Dream?: Prologue

I also have a question:
Will you make the "non-prologue" when this comic is done?
PS-Nice work! :D
