Or Redeads, they can stop you too
Welp guys, this is it. The final page of this comic. It's been a blast making this comic and getting all of the feedback from the fans but all good things must come to an end. Thank you all so much for sticking by the comic for 3+ years, it means a lot to me. I hope you enjoyed this little ride just as much as I have.

But wait, what about Adding Zero, Afro? You mentioned something about that right? Check the >>>News Post<<< for more information on that.

Again, thanks a bunch everyone, I hope you enjoyed The After Subtract! :)

Any thought what you're gonna do now?

CarnageRulez312, June 24th, 2011, 5:10 pm

Great ending to a great comic!

Afrohawkman, June 24th, 2011, 5:18 pm

@HoC: Check the news post! (A link to it is in the author comment)

Darkblane257, June 24th, 2011, 5:19 pm

Nice I love happy ending keep up a great work.

Raging Ghost, June 24th, 2011, 5:19 pm

And here, I thought there would be a plot twist who would launch a cliffhanger explained through ''Adding Zero''.

I am dissapointed.

Afrohawkman, June 24th, 2011, 5:23 pm

(Man this face is coming in handy) That was the original plan, yes, but I explained why I didn't do that in the news post. Please read it.

lord_aizen66, June 24th, 2011, 5:29 pm

i doint see a link in your authers comments??

Afrohawkman, June 24th, 2011, 5:34 pm

How about now?

Vergil, June 24th, 2011, 5:37 pm

Its da sunset from d banner *sniff* im surely gonna miss this comic

raven41, June 24th, 2011, 5:54 pm

Good ending I think.

DarkMario1000, June 24th, 2011, 6:26 pm

I remember first reading this
It was via drshnaps.com! Speaking of which, where is that dude!!!

Anyways, man…This was pretty awesome. If it was animated, I think it'd be just as epic! Good job, Afro.

SolaratheHedgehog, June 24th, 2011, 6:28 pm

Great comic, it's a shame that it's over.
But that's how it goes :3

King_Rover, June 24th, 2011, 6:58 pm

In the future if more my favorites get updates, this may be in the back, but I always will read from beginning to end.

Congratulations good sir, you made a damn good comic from beginning to end.

Now make yourself a cake and eat it.

Geoff, June 24th, 2011, 7:02 pm

It's a heart-warming ending. So I think I'll be alright.

Sir Bacon, June 24th, 2011, 7:46 pm

Congratulations on a comic well done! It's sad to see it end, but all things must pass in time, I suppose.

Remainder, June 24th, 2011, 8:06 pm

Great job man!
Congratulation on finishin an awesome comic! Well done.

pat15, June 24th, 2011, 8:21 pm

When I first read the author comment, I thought you wrote "Thank you all so much for stalking by the comic for 3+ years" at first xD
Now I feel stupid

artistafrustrado, June 24th, 2011, 8:43 pm

roflmao! nothing can stop the hero team ...nothing but bathroom breaks!! XD

really funny & awesome ending =)

Solstice, June 24th, 2011, 9:00 pm

That was a great story! I'm sure that I'll follow Adding Zero when it starts updating. ^^

P.S. 2nd panel looks like the dialogue is not in order, but that could be just me~

Afrohawkman, June 24th, 2011, 10:09 pm

It's in order, it could go either way.

Lord Enigma, June 24th, 2011, 10:51 pm

Great job. It's kinda hard to believe it's over. Though it had to happen at some point. I've been meaning to reread this and now is a good time.

Arc Impulse, June 24th, 2011, 10:59 pm

Brilliant and well done.
I can safely say you managed to hit the very small margin that is perfect for me.
I like length in a tale so as to get entranced and want more. Yet at the same time if it goes on and on and on, well, I lose all interest and almost start to dislike the story.
You Afrohawkman, have successfully told a deep and engaging tale while not making it last over 2000 damn comics. I can really only think of probably 5 stories that large that have kept my interest(none on Smackjeeves, sorry but I'd rather read a short well written story than a good not amazing story that never ends).

J-F, June 24th, 2011, 11:12 pm

*bows* It's been an honor. This was one of, if not THE very first comic I read when I joined Smackjeeves, and it's VERY satisfying to see it come full circle like this. ^^

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for the long years of dedication and hard work.

Apple, June 25th, 2011, 1:35 am

Congratulations =D

Samurai pizza hedgehog, June 25th, 2011, 3:06 am

a had a great time reading this comic and might re-read it again :3

floob, June 25th, 2011, 5:58 am

I remember a couple years ago, when I hadn't discovered Smackjeeves, I found this comic while browsing the internet for comics to read. I started reading this comic, and it eventually lead me to Smackjeeves. I have to thank you for that, Afro, and also for the laughs that this comic has given me. I don't think I've ever seen a crossover sprite comic last nearly as long as this one has, and I can't wait for Adding Zero. Best of luck getting better with spriting in the future.

Oceanus (Guest), June 25th, 2011, 10:06 am

Wow. So it's finally over, huh?
It was a great comic, and I'm glad it's here. And stuff. I'm awful at this stuff. :P

Just one question.

What happened to Kelsey?

BuddyT, June 25th, 2011, 10:13 am

Awesome ending to an awesome comic, good job Afro!

ClareSilver47, June 25th, 2011, 10:47 am

so picking the Sunset Heroes was indeed the best banner to pick!

Meepa111 (Guest), June 25th, 2011, 11:10 am

It's the end! *sad face*
when i was done reading this, i was thinking *OH PLEASE HAVE A SPIN OFF! OH PLEASE HAVE A SPIN OFF!* but i guess not...

btw, @ Afrohawkman, i pm'ed you the details on the after subtract pt. 1 in your comic so... yeah, might wanna check that out...

GIGA-XISBASS, June 25th, 2011, 11:10 am


epicness, June 25th, 2011, 11:44 am

i'm never gonna forget you guys...

Mysterious voice:....When the flame dies,a new light shall arise....

King_Rover, June 25th, 2011, 2:41 pm

@epicness Here I thought the page was glitching until I notice the large space of your text.

Cory (Guest), June 25th, 2011, 5:06 pm

Why did it have to end one day before my birthday?! DX

blaster (Guest), June 26th, 2011, 4:15 am

Nice Journey with you, and I wonder how are they going back to their own world?

And what about the plot page?

Metaknight677, June 26th, 2011, 6:30 am

bye bye mac and pc YOU GUYS ROCKED

Lady Darkrina, June 26th, 2011, 9:45 am

Aww, it's sad that the after subtract must end like this but I believe it's the best comic I've ever read^^ and I've enjoyed every bit of it too^^

TheTurbo, June 27th, 2011, 1:36 pm

An absolutely fantastic comic, sad it's going to end. Wish mine was as good and popular as this.

Good luck on your new one.

Hero of Comedy, June 27th, 2011, 8:52 pm

Maybe someday TheTurbo, we'll all have comics as good and as popular as this one.

ZeroTornado, June 29th, 2011, 6:22 pm

kinda sad to see it go. but least it had an ending unlike some comics.
I remember when i first read this on DrShnaps along with King Guacamole

Tac attack (Guest), June 30th, 2011, 6:23 pm

Bet the next page is the end... No i is just kid den You, I love and hate all off you guys ( breaks into tears)

The Master (Guest), July 3rd, 2011, 6:21 am

As everything has a beginning, everything must have an end...

CarnageRulez312, July 9th, 2011, 3:17 pm

I think you should release one more comic to reach the 1000 mark. It doesn't even have to be a comic maybe just one big picture will all the main heroes and villians.

Lockman, July 10th, 2011, 9:37 pm


Roja the Hedgehog, July 13th, 2011, 11:45 pm

I'll bet anything no one missed me!
Hiya! It's me, one of the many people that used to check back often.

But you see, I sorta quit smack jeeves for a loong time.

I had plenty of reasons...

I~ I got TF2. Yippee! Lots of hours to waste!

II~ I started reading "The Last Hunter...?", an awesome L4D2 comic!

III~ I started writing a story. A pokemon one. I bring new parts in regularly!

IV~ I'm making lots of Flash videos~~! They're coming along quite well. I plan on releasing them eventually!

V~ I started drawing in Adobe Illustrator. That is what you used to make this comic, right?

VI~ I'm scripting Flash games now! Hard but rewarding!

VII~ I've been trolling on lots of forums! Jk. I've been arguing with lots of trolls on forums and youtube videos!

VIII~ I'm practicing the piano! Hard but fun! I know at least ten Zelda chimes now!

IX~ I've been making sprites! Very simple 8-Bit ones. Also rewarding!

X~ We're all gamers. I'm no exception.

I have been trying to get back here. Honest! I missed the community and I feel bad that I missed this comic. I wish I could have been here for the end, but it appears that I've crammed to much into my day. I'm sorry that I let you down, guys. Afrohawkman, your comic was very humorous, interesting, and epic. I hope that "Adding Zero" goes well and will be just as good as it's "parent" comic!

This is such an emotional moment for me. All the hours I spent reading this comic comes close to the 63 hours I've played TF2 in about a week WITH all these projects I'm working on! It's so tiring, not being able to just sit and think for a bit! Well, at least it's summer break...

...WRONG! I'm homeschooled. That means that I don't have to go to school, and I don't work QUITE as hard, but I DO NOT GET DAYS OFF. Do you know how tight my schedule is?! I hope you understand now why I didn't have time for this comic!

...Sorry that was harsh. I didn't mean the "I didn't have time for this comic" part. Not a word of it. I wish I could have read it. But there are only 24 hours in a day and I decided to forfeit at least 2 (Some of my sleeping time) to read this from the start again. It's been so long, I didn't know where to start from!

And I agree. Only bathroom breaks and redeads can stop their team! ...Okay, maybe those vines from Mushroom Hill Zone. Not to mention whatever happens in Adding Zero!

I'll bet at least one of you is wondering "Well if you've been defending forums, etc. and playing TF2, why couldn't you check back on this comic?!". You see, I sorta didn't want to start over. In bed, I think "Tomorrow I will!". Guess what? Before I know it, I'm in bed again thinking the same thing! But then my sister wanted me to watch a video. It was Pikachu X Link. Weird premise, huh? I took 4 minutes of my time to watch it, but it was alright. Anyway, it reminded me: "Hey! Afrohawkman likes Cream X Tails, right? Oh yeah, he/she did a Christmas comic on it!". This made me want to check back twice as much. Two days later, I checked back to find all the awesome content that was added while I was gone! Oh I'm sorry. No one would care about me THIS much. I'll bet no one even remembers me :/

Anyway, if you wanna see the "Link X Pikachu" video, here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-eyhJwW_pw

I listen to the music over and over again when I make projects now. I do that with all songs I like. No, I don't get sick of them!

ghost kirby fan 99 (Guest), July 17th, 2011, 12:15 pm

i loved reading this comic!
sad to say goodbye to it. sigh...

Xtremetdifan, July 17th, 2011, 4:54 pm

WHY! Why did this comic have to end can't you an extra story line or something... but all good things must come to an end I;m gonna miss this comic keep up the the good work afro.

Trolling Saruman (Guest), July 19th, 2011, 12:21 pm

Ignore the comment title and guest name, i am bored >_>
Just wanted to say that i can't wait for Adding Zero! <3

Aeon3valefore, July 20th, 2011, 4:31 pm

Six more days
Six more days until the sequel, unless something makes a delay, I can wait. U make great comcis.

Afrohawkman, July 20th, 2011, 10:01 pm

Where did you get that number? I never said anything about when I was going to come back. I'm still on my break. Which hasn't even been a break because of the SJ Awards so I haven't even STARTED working on the sequel yet.

Be patient, it will come in due time and it shall be great.

ghost kirby fan 99 (Guest), July 21st, 2011, 1:27 am

so... what now? do we all just go away? this it? kaput? awww...
sad to say bye!
anyways i'll be look ing at predicaments for a while till adding zero comes back!

Meepa111 (Guest), July 21st, 2011, 9:11 am

Quick remindah fo' you!
Hey, uh, Afrohawkman, just wanted to let you know that I pm'ed you the details on the after subtract prt. 1 (whatever pm means). If you already saw both of them, let me know.


Afrohawkman, July 21st, 2011, 1:57 pm

PM means private message, meaning you send it to me through an account here. No offense but I'm not just going to put up my sprites and other information about them on my comic pages because anyone could steal them. You're going to have to register and send me a message if you want them.

Plazmaz, July 26th, 2011, 6:54 pm


herpderp (Guest), August 8th, 2011, 5:24 am

Amazing comic man defiantly my favorite it was fun reading this for 3+ years and I can't wait till Adding Zero take as long as you need too on the break

hedge the hog (Guest), September 25th, 2012, 7:55 pm

JovanW, February 20th, 2019, 10:06 am
