Oh man headaches

It's like a party in my brain

and everybody's throwing up

Here, have this comic







Also, for those of you that have played Skyward Sword--specifically, getting the Goddess Forge in Lanayru Desert: not gonna lie, I had a pretty good laugh over it

Yay an update! also is it just me or does the art look a wee bit different?

SECOND!


...and now for the actual comment:
It's great that there is finally another page of Mushroom Go. I was worried for a time that you two might be thinking about abandoning it. I can't say I understand what's happening in this page though. Am I missing something obvious, or is there something you haven't revealed to us yet?

Also, I have to comment. It about ...the art style [Everybody run! It's alive!] Please try to take this the right way, but my first thought on seeing Go was "Dragon Ball Z?" I personally prefer this comic having a Western Animation feel instead of an Anime feel, and it seems that Obfuscobble is steering towards the style seen in Comic #79 again. Hopefully, this time around, though, we'll be able to have a reasonable discussion thread about this. (Oh, who are we kidding: there'll always be someone...)

In all other regards, though, I am happy and am eagerly looking forward to mass explosions! :D
the_unchosen_one 12th Dec 2011, 4:02 PM edit delete reply
I believe the art style in this one might be due to a bit of a rush. The style from 79 is most likely closest Obfuscobble's "home" style. This one was likely in a bit of a rush, just to get it out there, likely causing Obfuscobble to end up leaning to what he's used to drawing.

Also, I think it's just something that hasn't been revealed yet. Go picked up something, but Morg didn't want us to know what it was yet. Might cause the chapter to go on a bit longer.

keep up the awesome comics Morg.

In the last panel we all see who the reasonable one is. Either that, or Guy just doesn't like to get wet. UMBRELLA!!!
OneOfTheNamelessRabble 12th Dec 2011, 9:10 AM edit delete reply
And is it just me or is Go shooting flames out of his eyeball?! 0.o
corvuscorone68 16th Dec 2011, 1:04 AM edit delete reply
no the eye is flaming but the flames being shot at the enemy are coming from his hand
OneOfTheNamelessRabble 17th Dec 2011, 7:50 PM edit delete reply
Darn! I wanted Go to be able to shoot flames from his eyes! *sigh* (-.-) Oh well, at least I can hope that Palma can control typhoons, or Guy can make claws come out of his fists.

This comic is weird, but I can still understand it. In fact, Mushroom Go was the reason I joined ComicFury. :D

Now, these are the things I thought of when I read this comic the first time through:

Panel 1: Go's nose looks strange.
Panel 2: Palma's bewbies are about to pop out of her top.
Panel 3: BULLET BILL!
Panel 4: There's an umbrella.

The umbrella's the best part.

...So whatcha got there, Go?
the_unchosen_one 12th Dec 2011, 10:41 PM edit delete reply
A 1-up mayhaps?
Whistle-tall 13th Dec 2011, 1:18 PM edit delete reply
Oh? A fellow theorist? The game is afoot!
While a 1-up is mayhaptually inclining, I speculate a starman.
Your move, the_unchosen_one.
the_unchosen_one 14th Dec 2011, 3:51 AM edit delete reply
Or possibly a "piece of star", if you will? Star bits were mentioned in the filler as a weaker version of a Power Star, able to power small machines. Super Mario 64 DS also introduced us to Silver Stars, which become a Power Star when you get 5. There's also the "8 Red Coins". All 3 of those ideas open up to a collection quest, where the crew is raiding the black bob-omb base (lol, I forge. What kind of poem that's called) to try and find more/missing pieces. I believe it to be your turn now Whistle-tall, unless of course someone else wishes to join in as well
Whistle-Tall 14th Dec 2011, 11:53 AM edit delete reply
I am glad to be matching wits with such a worthy opponent.
hmm...
Actually, I must concede that you've won this round of musings.
Good show, the_unchosen_one, good show.

Whew... not sure how I made it out of that one... But anyway. what, it can't be a rock?

*shakes hand* Why thank you good sir. Never know though. You might think of something down the line.
Ryuu 18th Dec 2011, 1:12 PM edit delete reply
At first I thought he was holding a Fire Flower in panel 1, since he's obviously using one in panel 4. Then I realized, no, that doesn't make any sense at all when you consider the dialog. =P Now I'm just stumped.

The wait just made this all the more EPIC.
Mutterscrawl 12th Dec 2011, 2:42 PM edit delete reply
I'm guessing whatever Go got was what made it rain, but I'm having trouble thinking of an item that does that...
Silvayne 12th Dec 2011, 2:54 PM edit delete reply
Silvayne
The rain has been building up since comic 90, maybe even 89.

Somehow, I actually called it. I'm not too sure how.

If anything, Go has some sort of powah source and they need the reactor for it.
Silvayne 12th Dec 2011, 2:57 PM edit delete reply

I just want to say I want that last frame-- complete with McCoy's epic lines and Guy's EPIC Umbrella-- as my desktop background.

Actually, I'm gonna do that right now...

hmh... it's a star-bit, obviously the filler was hinting at it. but seriously. BULLET BILL!! and bob-ombs. my 2 favorite creatures from the mario-verse... in one page! -can die happy- -gets shot by bullet bill- .... damnit... i regret... not seeing the end of ...mushroom go.... or TOGM.... -dies-
FuzzyZergling 13th Dec 2011, 5:46 PM edit delete reply
Yay it's not dead!

But yeah Go does look a bit off-model in this one.
Not really a big deal though, UMBRELLA easily makes up for it.
FuzzyZergling 13th Dec 2011, 5:50 PM edit delete reply
@Myself
I just looked back at page 104, and it's mostly just the eyes/nose that's the problem.
MeowMixIsorCats339 13th Dec 2011, 6:15 PM edit delete reply
That umbrella is the best umbrella.

That line is the best line.

Go's face is the worst face.

........umbrella.....
Owl 13th Dec 2011, 7:52 PM edit delete reply

The umbrella needs a name! Suggestions anyone?
EKA 13th Dec 2011, 9:49 PM edit delete reply

How about Para? Or Sol? A good number of characters in the Mario-Verse have Para in their names (Usually the winged mooks, but thats obvious), and it being half of parasol, is like how Guy is also half of Shyguy.
Owl 14th Dec 2011, 10:33 PM edit delete reply
Owl
Clever. I think Sol is the better of the two options because Guy is the latter half of Shyguy. Plus, sol means sun and an umbrella reduces the chances of being soaked by rain so it's kinda sun-like in that sense. :D

Oh, you don't like spoilers? ):P Mwahahaha! SPOILER ALERT!!! LINK DIES!...and the best part is that you don't know if I'm lying! MWAHAHAHAHA! (beat the game a week after getting it. :P)

i actualy already heard about that one :P


i wish i didn't though :I
OneOfTheNamelessRabble 15th Dec 2011, 11:28 AM edit delete reply
Darn! Oh well... When you do get the game, some advice 1. The first dungeon has spiders, ignore them 2. You get feathers from the little birds 3. If you can't get something, come back when you get the claw-shots.
the_unchosen_one 16th Dec 2011, 4:42 AM edit delete reply
Spoiler alert!!! You get a sword
Stegosaurus 16th Dec 2011, 4:38 PM edit delete reply
lucky... i cant afford skyward sword... or any game for that matter. i usually get them after theyve been out for a few years. for example, i just played twilight princess a few months ago.
the_unchosen_one 17th Dec 2011, 12:56 AM edit delete reply
I went with a deal at Blockbuster. Let me play through all of Zelda and a good chunk of Kirby and something else I can't remember at the moment... Cheaper.

I don't care if it's just the shading or what, but I love Go's eyes.

Hmm...

I bet Go either found a piece of King Bom-Omb's... or Pinky.

I'm hoping Pinky!

Does anybody else think that Go somehow looks like he is HIGH AS FUCK in the first panel? Because I do.
GensouKoizu 15th Dec 2011, 6:09 AM edit delete reply
First.
I love how the rain can't extinguish Go's flame.
IS THAT WHAT I THINK IT IS? What is it anyway...
GensouKoizu 15th Dec 2011, 6:11 AM edit delete reply
oops, not first.
Everything, all comments were missing when i first got here, I swear.
Now the idea of getting those accounts sounds nicee...

seems Guy is holding the umbrella over go to keep the rain off.

I let this comic build up, so when I get back to it, I have pages and pages of awesome!

I love your stuff, Morgenstern, and as always, the art is good.

I do have one thing to say: Your female characters are probably the best in webcomics today. You write them like real people, not "wimmins". Keep it up, man!

Oh, and do join the Commanders sometime again, okay? We miss ya.

"wimmins" made me cackle aloud

yes, we all agree here UMBRELLA. nuff' said. And its name shall be snark, because yes.

I love how at this point it just kind of skips straight into a huge base raid like it's nothing :P
