hi 1st please

HAHA yes finally a 1st! KBB looks like it has some kind of like melty field around it because of those punches, its like a rippley force field thingie or something.
schmaedalus 16th Oct 2011, 1:03 PM edit delete reply
I think those are dents.
I wonder if quicksilver Go on KBBs head will do anything to it...

Ooh, does Squishie get the badass suit of armor now? Or will it destroy him with its power?

the_unchosen_one 16th Oct 2011, 2:54 PM edit delete reply
Go reconstitutes and destroys KBB just as Squshie goes inside to do his (her?) thing. There has to be a sentimental loss at some point

Mr. Vareel
Is the head still functioning?
Evdog 19th Oct 2011, 5:30 AM edit delete reply
There's no light in his eyes anymore, so I'm guessing not.
Mr. Vareel 19th Oct 2011, 8:06 PM edit delete reply
Mr. Vareel
Hmm...I wouldn't have called them lights, but I think I know what you mean. Well, it's good enough for me.

I just realized Guy only has one scrach on his mask now!
Fuddlebob 16th Oct 2011, 5:43 PM edit delete reply
Aww... I was very vaguely hoping that KBB lifting the arm was actually Go controlling him through metal powers. Guess that's not gonna happen though.
Evdog 16th Oct 2011, 6:43 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, me too...
...oh well. I guess that this is close enough.

In response to the comic's title:

@Mr. Vareel
OK, rough translation time.

Title-Thus Always King

Evdog's post-
Impossible victory: appear invisible
Go, go! Fight Bob-omb!
Touch melt: Mechanical scatter
Go, go! Fight Bob-omb!

Guest's post-can not lose?

...Probably got some of that wrong, but it's hopefully close. If nothing else, you can at least get the gist of what it means.

Mr. Vareel
Thanks! I appreciated it.
avid reader 16th Oct 2011, 10:16 PM edit delete reply
I msy be out of place here, but I've been a reader since you started the comic. I have one request. Could you please go back to your old style? There's something about it that makes the characters and story more believeable, and that I feel attached to. I'm not sure if anyone agrees with me, but it would be amazing if the comic went back to its roots.
Bonz0 16th Oct 2011, 10:40 PM edit delete reply
Lots of people agree with you but that fight has been fought and lost.

Hobojoe007 17th Oct 2011, 11:07 AM edit delete reply
Yeah, man a lot of us wanted it like that, but this new style isn't all that bad now that the new artist has has time to experiment and see what works best.
Ranter 17th Oct 2011, 2:32 PM edit delete reply
If things had gone my way, I would've wanted Morg to do the art and coloring, but Ob to make touch-ups in smoothness. proportion and background.

But like they said, fought and lost.
And like they said, Ob's style is pretty cool, especially after practice with the different types of characters and whatnot.
Pinstripe 17th Oct 2011, 8:36 PM edit delete reply
In some ways that's not very far off from what's going on. Obfuscobble's been kind enough to show me some roughs from Morg and all of his work is very faithful to Morgenstern's designs.
the_unchosen_one 17th Oct 2011, 11:53 PM edit delete reply
I think Obfuscobble's done a very nice job mimicking Morgenstern's style. I just wish he'd put in the sketchy lines that always used to be there. To me, it made the grit seem grittier and the action seem actionier
Mr. Vareel 18th Oct 2011, 2:14 PM edit delete reply
Mr. Vareel
I'm with the_unchosen_one. This comic isn't the same without the sketchy lines. Λlthough, I think that going back to the sketchy lines now would be… I don't know… I don't think it would work out well. I don't know why, just a hunch. Not that my hunches are trustworthy…
Ranter 18th Oct 2011, 3:36 PM edit delete reply
Agree with both Mr. Vareel and the_unchosen_one.

The sketchy lines on the inside AND the outside really added some nice dark flavoring to the comic.


I wouldn't want Ob to mimic that, because I don't think it would go well with his actiony style.
Infamous Nefarious 19th Oct 2011, 2:47 AM edit delete reply
I feel you. McCoy's face looks like one of the falcon gates from SMB 2....

Even I gave up arguing over it. It IS his comic after all.
Super Mariachi Bros 17th Oct 2011, 1:20 AM edit delete reply
Ah, crud... I hope that Squishy (how'd he get this name, now?) is actually going to successfully interface with KBB and not just detonate himself, once inside the body. Would it be effective? Certainly.
Would it be tragic? Definitely.
EKA 17th Oct 2011, 7:55 PM edit delete reply
Somebody used a Finding Nemo quote to refer to him.

"I will call him squishy, and he will be mine!"
EKA 17th Oct 2011, 7:55 PM edit delete reply
Also, a couple people called him "Pinkie". myself included, but Squishy was just too cute to pass up.

Something like, 'Defeat the impossible: see the invisible/asdf, asdf! asdf Bob-omb!'

I don't know... help?

Yeah, Google Translate. Because everyone knows:

Amaare 17th Oct 2011, 1:35 AM edit delete reply
I can't help noticing that KBB has Palma under one foot and the remains of metal go under the other.
How brilliant would it be if Go reconstitiuted and they both threw KBB?
Not sure how that would help, but it would be great nonetheless.
Bonz0 17th Oct 2011, 5:34 PM edit delete reply
That could help a lot, actually. Goes back to the "Big Bob-omb can only survive falls if he has enough time to reposition body to avoid damaging core" theory.

You mean he'll win and they'll offer him victory pizza, which he won't be able to enjoy because he's a robot, thereby causing him to go on a rampage of carnage inspired by pizza-envy?! NO!!!

Actually, I sympathize. I fear for the worst, myself.
I_am_Solid_Snaek 17th Oct 2011, 5:51 PM edit delete reply
that's probably the second-most tragic possibility, first being self-destruction...

Am I the only one who noticed that KBB knocked the cig out of MacCoy's mouth?

That's probably his berserk button: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BerserkButton
Eternity Everest 22nd Oct 2011, 3:26 PM edit delete reply
I... I did comment on it... *cries over being overlooked* Oh well.
I happen to agree that making McCoy lose his cig is probably a good way to get your mortality to very quickly become apparent.
Mutterscrawl 17th Oct 2011, 10:22 PM edit delete reply
REPENT FOOLS! I HAVE AN AVATAR NOW! Or at least I should...

Now, I'm curious as to how it fights and sees without a head, but I suppose it might not have even been seeing from the head to begin with? Maybe it senses electromagnetic fields?

@.@ So many possibilities.

Anywho, I speculate that KBB is operating on ye' olde autopilot. Doing what he was doing/planning on doing before his thoughts were...cut off.

Off topic I know, but MORG!!! I found your dA! Got to page 26 of Thaousand Nines. Where can I find the rest? As far as I can tell, the original site is no longer supported
Morgenstern 18th Oct 2011, 2:36 AM edit delete reply
The DrunkDuck site should still be there, it's just real ugly (much like my DeviantArt page). And sadly(?) page 26 was the last one I did of Thousand Nines.

OH CRAP!! Guy is holding Squishie by the fuse! Guy is gonna try and throw Squishie inside KBB, but he's gonna miss and Squishie goes BOOM!! NOOOO!!!!

So Morg, any thoughts on 100 pages?
Mr. Vareel 18th Oct 2011, 2:23 PM edit delete reply
Mr. Vareel
If King Bob-omb had a nervous system, I imagine those punches McCoy is giving would hurt. He's leaving dents in the metal… wait… no… King Bob-omb… he's… he's not… HE'S NOT SYMMETRICΛL ΛNYMORE! (I tried. I really really tried. I couldn't help it.)
NotJoe 18th Oct 2011, 11:08 PM edit delete reply
I really hope Squishie doesn't end up in a bajillion pieces.

@ red shy guy: Even if that belt's the source of his power, I don't think I could bring myself to try to unfasten it... just wouldn't feel right, y'know? Martello probably wouldn't care as much, if it takes KBB out, though. Too bad she's indisposed, at the moment.
@ Morgenstern: Forgot to congratulate you on 100 pages of epic 'shroom-osity. Congratulations!

I was thinking of his speech pattern: "Do these men have an incredibly grave illness? Yes. Will there be catastrophic results if we do not cure their ill? There certainly will." Λsking a question and then answering it yourself, that kind of thing. No offense intended, by the way.

I_am_Solid_Snaek 20th Oct 2011, 8:10 PM edit delete reply
Whoo! Skyward Sword looks awesome! Just hope that it actually has something to make it unique. Zelda fans are annoying when they ask for innovation and complain when Nintendo changes the formula up. Point in case: Majora's Mask. Throw in the "3 day" formula and a lot of weenies whine about it, even though it was pretty awesome. Rant finished!

Ooh yes! I almost forgot: happy 100th comic, Morg and Obbie!

That would be Japanese:

Or why Guy is called Guy.

...although that is technically still up for debate...
NotJoe 21st Oct 2011, 7:22 AM edit delete reply
I think he said somewhere that he named Martello after a type of fort or something like that, and later found out it also meant hammer.
Bonz0 22nd Oct 2011, 11:18 AM edit delete reply

I know you're both new to this format, but just so you know, if you press "reply" on a comment, instead of "Post a Comment" at the top or bottom of the comment section, your comment goes under the post in which you want to reply to. What you guys are doing is the miniature version of creating an entirely new thread to respond to a comment.

It's just one of those things that annoys me...

I gotta say, I love how you give us a heads up when stuff isn't going quite according to plan, instead of telling us what happened when you post. It seems to me most webcomic authors do the latter, and it's great to see that you care about your readers enough to give them advance warning
