Oh my is this

Is this a comic?

Is this happening?

That's right ladies, it's back. Though, I make no guarantees about scheduling--right now, I'm thinking Mushroom Go updates "whenever the heck I feel like it"

(Which should be pretty frequently for a while because a;dk;jdf;a haven't done comics in forever)

I want to thank everybody that's supported me and kept the comments section busy and given me money, even though you guys just knew it was going to alcohol. I mean some of it might have gone toward Photoshop, domain names and whatnot but most of it went to getting me krunk

I think I said I wouldn't do anything special for donators, but I might have to change my mind and do something special for y'all I dunno yet

Also! I will be going to A-Kon again this year!

Still not as like, a guest or anything I'm just going to buy a ticket and drive there like a normal human being

But it's in Dallas/Fort Worth from June 1 to the 3rd. Last year some people said they wished they'd have gotten more of a heads up, since they were totally there and didn't know I would be. If a story my friend told me was true, I might have literally walked past some people discussing Mushroom Go and not realized it. So... there's your heads up. A-Kon.

I feel like I'm forgetting something! I haven't done a comic in like three months. Oh, yeah--Koopasta is a thing with some Marios in it, from what I understand. Also, Obfuscobble is now doing commissions!

And Tom Waits is still amazing, but that's not really relevant or news

*First to make a worthwhile comment*

Good to see you're back Morg. In the time that you were down I started up my own webcomic. Well it was in planning for about a year so...

Nice explination for why Mario and Co. isn't there BTW.

So that explains how he ended off the airship.... but where did the other toad end up me wonders.

In other news, I guess dry bones are a thing. Wonder how that exactly works out.

1 - He'll be fine, he has a 1-up
2 - Just like every other unexplainable thin in fantasy universes. A magikoopa did it

Mr. Vareel
Who cares? That's the most badass looking Dry Bones I've seen since...ehh...uh...never. It's the most badass looking Dry Bones I've ever seen.
(I'll probably start caring about how a Dry Bones are formed once I stop being a fanboy. Should be from two days to a week.)
the_unchosen_one 23rd May 2012, 2:15 AM edit delete reply
Maybe they're just another breed of Koopa? Who said they're actually skeletal remains? Maybe their just held together on the inside. Like an exoskeletal organism or something

Y'all should totally take a look at Obfuscobble's commissions post! I commissioned some art from him of Yosuke and Chie from Persona 4 as a Christmas gift for my sister and it was AMAZING.

Secret origin: bar brawl near the edge of an airship? Was there some guy narrating the fight and shouting K.O.?

I love how the fight is drawn with chibi characters. XD

I wonder what Guy is doing. Is he off making friends again?

So did the green toad die in the quicksand, or will he become an important character.
Tobias 17th May 2012, 6:53 PM edit delete reply
I'm wondering if green guy is actually Fungus, perhaps with his face damaged by the fall. Fungus seems a lot more like a guy than Blair to me, though it's quite possible he's someone from Go's past we don't know about yet.

I'll admit that thought had crossed my mind as well, though I don't think there is enough to say one way or the other.

Why are you spending donations on alcohol? Shouldn't it go towards the comic?
This is why I don't donate to stuff like this. Art should come out of pocket, but then people give you cash.. to spend on inebriation?
I am glad the comic is being posted again. It's nice to see Guy's back story. I especially like the traditional Nintendo-style art for the flashbacks.
Bonz0 17th May 2012, 9:17 PM edit delete reply
The Toad's name is actually "Go". That's why the comic is called "Mushroom Go". He's the main character and he's a member of a mushroom themed species.

"Guy" is in fact the name of the masked fellow who belongs to the "Shy Guy" tribe.
NotJoe 17th May 2012, 9:20 PM edit delete reply
He stated multiple times that if you donate it'll likely end up being spent on alcohol.
Cammiluna 17th May 2012, 9:42 PM edit delete reply
Not to mention some of the greatest artists in history did their best works while intoxicated. Or drugged in some other way.

And the part where I spent it on Photoshop and domain names

Speaking of which, the website can now be reached at mushroomgo.net in addition to mushroomgo.com
A Gray Phantom 18th May 2012, 10:50 PM edit delete reply
Ah, domain names. I hear those are expensive. I'm afraid the thing that jumped out the most when I read your post is that fact that you were spending donations on alcohol. And I suppose you did advertise what you were spending donations on. I still don't agree, but if it works it works.
And yes, I feel silly for calling Go "Guy." I even thought that in my head when I was posting. Guess it's been a while.

You know what also makes this page awesome?

Read it again, and then hit the "FIRST" button. Read the whole archive, then when you come to this page again, read it and hit "FIRST" again. Go's Life is now on infinite loop.

Who is manning the betting booth, a buzzy beetle or a sumo bros? Lets the discussion begin.
Aer 18th May 2012, 6:23 AM edit delete reply
Buzzy beetles would be more adorable looking, I say sumo bro.
Amaare 18th May 2012, 6:37 AM edit delete reply
Looks kind of tortoise-ish to me, but my knowledge of Marioverse (or should I now say Go-niverse?) characters isn't that great.
Whistle-Tall 18th May 2012, 11:55 AM edit delete reply
Sumo brothers have a single spike coming out of the top of their heads, making them a pain to encounter from above.
The bandage suggests that this elderly man has encounterred some form of jump-based damage. However, his muzzle and shell are definitely of the Sumo bro persuasion.
His shell also reminds me of the shell from a hammer bros. suit.

Well. I rarely comment here, as I'm sure has been noticed, but I will on this occasion.
Welcome back, and it's great to see that everything is fine. This comic is one of the better ones I've seen, and it's good to know it will continue. Keep up the awesome work.

Shia has enough airtime as it is, and I can't think of any character he played after Holes that I actually liked.
I'm liable to be disagreed with, but I can see someone like Rupert Grint doing a passable job as Go.

Is it just me, or does Go looks somewhat gender ambiguous in this picture. While it's beautifully drawn, Cammiluna, I almost mistook Go for a female version of himself (Mushroom ...Jo?).
Cammiluna 24th May 2012, 7:51 AM edit delete reply
Technical reasons include "it was 5am", having no knowledge of how to draw Go at the time, ukeism, yaoi trolling, 5am..goddamn he looks way too girly.

Woah...for some reason, I don't know why, the green Toad is reminding me of Envy from FMΛ. Maybe the spikey green hair? I don't know. It must have been that cornbread I ate. You should never trust cornbread.

Is it corn, or is it bread? I can't even pretend to trust it until it at least picks a side and sticks with it

okay GreenToad (GT) looks like he's trying to save Go. even in Chibi form, i read that feel here.

which makes me think the words "Not like this!" went through his head.

Oh snap for awkward reunions.
