Nice posing on this one. Guy looks a little stiff in the third panel but overall its a good action sequence.

Kepp it up!

Whee! An update!


I dropped my iPod on my face while typing that.

Mr. Vareel
Hooray for backstory! For some reason, I suspect that some people will be unhappy with what's just come to light. I really hope I'm wrong though.

Character development! Action! Forgotten reddit passwords! Oh no! The tens of karma!

I for one welcome our humanoid raven's backstory.

I like that part of McCoy. That "I've seen everything and just can't possibly give a damn anymore." Attitude.

However now I get the feeling that Fungus has some real history with this group. That was kinda a given based on how he was hunting them, but now we might see how.
yoshi freak 30th Jul 2012, 9:03 PM edit delete reply
Or at least some history with McCoy
the_unchosen_one 30th Jul 2012, 2:39 AM edit delete reply
Poor Guy. Fear is the most dangerous weapon once it's been pressed. I'm beginning to think Fungus may not be a Toad. Either that, or McCoy was once more than just a drifter

I like Mccoy
w111j 30th Jul 2012, 8:29 AM edit delete reply
And this is why Mccoy is so awesome. ouo
BlueMario 30th Jul 2012, 9:46 AM edit delete reply
WHAT is Fungus's real identity?
WHEN was McCoy ever a hero?

Our Love for him now isn't hard to enjoy~

the Raven McCoy~!

"DAMMIT Guy I'm a Chain Smoker not a Heroic Icon!"

I'm sorry about that last one, I've been holding it back for MONTHS.

I actually came up with a better intro line.

"He robbed from the rich and robbed em some more"
Fought all kinds of dudes but never kept score."

My name is Lukkai and I approve this comic! ;)

Really like where this is going. Not your average good guys vs. bad guys story.

When did McCoy get that scar in his beak?
Cadmar 3rd Aug 2012, 4:00 AM edit delete reply
I think that's actually the detail on the beak. You'll find that some birds have it.

But what do I know? It could be a scar after all. :P

Who is this guy? I'm so curious, I can't wait for more plot reveal :)
Lyntermas 30th Jul 2012, 7:58 PM edit delete reply
Just read through the archives. Came here from Friendship is Dragons. I like this comic. I'm looking forward to seeing how it goes.
yoshi freak 30th Jul 2012, 9:05 PM edit delete reply
Great comic, I'm kind of curious though, on how you would draw a yoshi
BlueMario 31st Jul 2012, 5:43 PM edit delete reply
He would either draw Yoshi like a big, reptilian humanoid, or as an intelligent raptor is my best guess
Morgenstern 31st Jul 2012, 8:45 PM edit delete reply
I tried to figure out how Yoshis would look about a year-ish ago, and what I ended up sketching was along the lines of an adorable T-rex. I haven't really tried to mess with it since.

A hero? Really? I gotta see this(unless your intention was to keep it for another arc).

I am very, VERY curious now . . . spill the beans, oh mystery talker!

Was that a Beanish pun?
Sheets 31st Jul 2012, 12:55 AM edit delete reply
I can't wait to see McCoy's backstory, to see how he evolved and turned into the badass, Raznor Red smoking raven that we see here.
theo 31st Jul 2012, 11:10 AM edit delete reply
Next panel must say
Fungus: "I was your biggest fan!"
Jolt99 31st Jul 2012, 4:53 PM edit delete reply
My guess is that somewhere along the line that one of his deeds was considered heroic and fungus was around to witness it. E.g. helping the pink bob-ombs could be considered by some as giving them freedom - the old terrorist or freedom fighter scenario. I mean we do already have backstory evidence of McCoy acting like this, he adopted guy for one.
Amaare 31st Jul 2012, 7:43 PM edit delete reply
Of course McCoy is a hero, a Badass hero!
The whole "I don't care about anything" act has already been seen cracking, but he tries hard.

Pleaso, Oh, PLEASE let McCoy eventually say "That's my secret, I'm always angry.

Hi there!

I just discovered this comic recently through Highly Experimental. I have to say, I love your writing and characters, and I really look forward to exploring more and more of your take on Mario's world. :)

Another thing, while the other artist who took over for a while had more professional and polished looking work, I've found that webcomics are a fantastic way to improve one's own art and challenge oneself, and I'm really happy that you're back on that journey again. Your art has charm, and I'm looking forward to seeing it get better and better as time goes on :) Keep pushing yourself!
Morgenstern 3rd Aug 2012, 10:48 AM edit delete reply
Hey everyone! You know I must be broke because...


That's right, folks, I'm taking art requests and starting it low. My rates are a little something like this:

For $12, I'll draw a character for you. It can be one of mine or it can be from something recognizable or it could just be some random description you give me I don't care, I'll draw pretty much anything. I'll color and shade it and all that jazz, no extra charge.

Full blown scenes are going to be like, $15 and up. Fifteen is just for the base "Character is doing something, there is a background involved." Each additional character in the scene tacks on another three bucks (so two characters doing something = $18).

I'm willing to discuss the particulars of pricing and the picture itself and whatnot. Payment will be through PayPal. I'd prefer that you get a hold of me through ComicFury's PM system, but worst case scenario you can also E-mail me through Yahoo (momo_hammer@yahoo.com). I don't expect payment until after I've actually sent you the picture, which shouldn't take more than a couple of days unless you ask for something crazy.
Mr. Vareel 3rd Aug 2012, 4:01 PM edit delete reply
Mr. Vareel
Draw McCoy with sunglasses and write "And not a single fuck was given that day." somewhere! Okay, not really. I just wanted to suggest something funny.
Amaare 3rd Aug 2012, 7:39 PM edit delete reply
Aargh, just as I've spent all my money to go on holiday!
I hope you'll still take a commission when I get back.
Bonz0 3rd Aug 2012, 9:06 PM edit delete reply
So we could ask you to draw a Mushroom Go-ified version of a Mario character or enemy? That would be pretty cool.
Morgenstern 4th Aug 2012, 4:46 AM edit delete reply
For twelve bucks I'll draw a Mushroom Go-ified version of Aero the Acrobat enemies I don't give a dang
Bonz0 5th Aug 2012, 1:19 AM edit delete reply
Hah, I totally got that reference and didn't have to go google it. Not at all.
theo 6th Aug 2012, 10:36 AM edit delete reply
But the real question is, *reporter voice* "Will you still refuse to draw Mario?"
"Why would you choose to break your one rule?"
"Do you often break rules?"
"Then you must be- *shot*

Clearly there is a conspiracy of mind blowing proportions! This will be the greatest scoop the Bunbunmaru Newspaper has had since the “Ten Desires” incident! I can see the headline now!

Λya! What are you doing here! This is a MΛRIO comic! Go back to Gensokyo and annoy Reimu or something!

This sounds fun... Once I get some spare cash around I'll probably send a commission out... if nothing else maybe of Vareel's idea, that just amuses me so much. I would probably use it as my desktop.

And a little slow there Tengu, so much for being the fastest around.
