Oh! I interpreted "they" to mean the Go Kart racing grounds, but you might be right, he might be talking about King Bomb-omb units.
Swagner 22nd Jan 2013, 6:37 PM edit delete reply
Well, now you've opened my eyes to other possibilities, too. Maybe one of those power-up boxes? He doesn't seem to be running toward shrapnel, now that I think about it, but I really can't tell with the angle used...
Scootaloo 21st Jan 2013, 1:01 PM edit delete reply
I think Tobias7 is right on the money, here. My first thought was Go-Kart racing grounds, too.

I want an interesting mutation that makes him taller and with long death arms, whatever that may be, or KBB dies by stepping on a banana peel, OR more metal go.
Amaare 21st Jan 2013, 7:07 PM edit delete reply
For some reason your description made me instantly think of this.
Please tell me that you don't want Go to turn into Anima.
Torchlight 22nd Jan 2013, 9:54 AM edit delete reply
>.> I thought of SlenderGo.
BlueMario 22nd Jan 2013, 10:07 AM edit delete reply
I also thought of SlenderGo.

Also, I thought of Go being part Animal, like after using a leaf or one of the Suits, after Amaare's comment making me think of +Anima
EKA 22nd Jan 2013, 10:18 AM edit delete reply
Y'know, I'm pretty sure Morg once drew some concept art of a frog-suit Go...
Bonz0 22nd Jan 2013, 11:28 AM edit delete reply
...you sure that wasn't Cammiluna? That sounds like something she would draw.
BlueMario 22nd Jan 2013, 6:49 PM edit delete reply
I wouldn't know. Sounds like something either of them would do
Cammiluna 22nd Jan 2013, 7:18 PM edit delete reply
It's something I've never drawn until six hours after you've made that post.


Go, baby. your new artist gave you such a nice haircut, i should start drawing it.

Asked....and answered!
Morgenstern 23rd Jan 2013, 1:40 AM edit delete reply
It was hellalong ago, but I did draw a frog suit at one point.


No idea if this would ever actually make it into the comic or not, lol.
Baratone 23rd Jan 2013, 2:58 AM edit delete reply
Either way, it still makes for an awesome picture though.
BlueMario 24th Jan 2013, 2:54 AM edit delete reply
I love your semi-realistic take on things, Morg.
For example: they eyes being lights.
Even I, a person who likes to try to picture things as realistic, never even thought of that. Also like the goggles.

lol GOggles

With the many weapons on those kart track,the possibilities are numerous.
whistle-tall 22nd Jan 2013, 10:43 AM edit delete reply
I think we have neglected to consider KARTS themselves.
Tobias7 22nd Jan 2013, 11:17 AM edit delete reply
That would be cool, but I don't think it fits quite right. "Come on, come on... [Go Kart racing tracks] have all got [a go kart], just gotta find it...
whistle-tall 22nd Jan 2013, 3:52 PM edit delete reply
I was thinking more along the lines that the "all" he was referring to were the racers. Not the kart track itself.
Scootaloo 22nd Jan 2013, 6:42 PM edit delete reply
Truly, then Morg would create the most horrible pun of all- he would be transforming into a "GO"-kart. And then everything would die.
Tobias7 22nd Jan 2013, 7:00 PM edit delete reply
Cammiluna should so do this next doodle :)
theo 22nd Jan 2013, 8:58 PM edit delete reply
Kart transformers. Or KBB absorbs a kart and becomes a killer kart death monster.
Cammiluna 22nd Jan 2013, 11:47 PM edit delete reply
Maybe after I complete this painful monstrosity.
whistle-tall 23rd Jan 2013, 1:17 AM edit delete reply
@scootaloo Why-why would you do that.
Why would you even think such a thing.
What have you done?

@Cammiluna Excellent cake. I should know. I draw cakes sometimes.
Macronomicon 22nd Jan 2013, 1:46 PM edit delete reply
Maybe he's looking for one of the item boxes?

Yes! That would be awesome :)
jolt99 22nd Jan 2013, 2:05 PM edit delete reply
What about mushrooms? That was my immediate thought, although there are plenty of other weapons go could use. Could be funny to see GO brawling King mano-a-mano.
DeadApple (lazy edition) 23rd Jan 2013, 7:05 AM edit delete reply
Alright Gentleman take your bets: What is Go trying to find

-Item Box
-Fake Item Box
-Banana Peel
-Green Shell
-Red Shell
-Blue Shell
-Bowser Shell
-Golden Mushroom
-Bullet Bill
-Lighting (My Guess)
-Mega Mushroom
-Pow Block
-Thunder Cloud
-Yoshi 0r Birdo Egg
-Giant Banana
- Lucky 7
-Chain Chomp
-Giant Banana
-Super Leaf
-Invincibility Star

I want to see a MuGo(it works)-world item box. So I vote/bet that.
Amaare 23rd Jan 2013, 7:16 PM edit delete reply
I want it to be a star, but I think Morg might be holding that in reserve for something bigger than KBB.
Tobias7 23rd Jan 2013, 8:42 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, Morg has said he has plans for several more years worth of Mushroom Go, somehow I doubt he would pull out the star this early

My guess is he's looking for either a fire flower or the bathroom.

Impromptu Announcement Time!

I may or may not be Livestreaming on Saturday for a short period of time on either Livestream.com or Twitch.Tv.
On Livestream, I'm BlueMario. On Twitch, I'm either BlueMario, or TheBlueMario.

I will be most likely playing randome video games. Might make an attempt at art.

(If this plug offends you, Morg, I'm sorry. I will take it down if you wish, but this will be my first of anything, ever; have to announce it somewhere where people know me)

Take your time. Remember, this fanbase was prepared to wait indefinitely. I'd like to think we're a fairly patient bunch.
BlueMario 30th Jan 2013, 12:55 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, prepping to move takes more effort than the moving itself.

Lol, I'm normally moderately impatient, but I literally have nothing important to do AT ALL; I have no job, no college, and most of time, I'm being FORCED out of the house

@Blue: Bummer, man. Good luck with the job hunt.
@thedandmom: Take your time... you're doing a comic for free that we don't pay anything to read... I'd say we're pretty much spoiled rotten 'round here.
Tobias7 30th Jan 2013, 9:55 PM edit delete reply
Yeah we are used to waiting. Especially for horrible excuses like MOVING :P Oh, and even with Morg, there were delays from things like computers crashing and such, so this is just carrying on tradition :)

Hey, Nostalgia Critic returns after what was supposedly the end of the series, and now I come back with high and ridiculous hopes to see that even Mushroom Go is back ...

Did one of them, you know, DIE?

And if a member of some band came back to life to reform the who, original cast of the band, I would want it to be the Beach Boys

So, I'm finally doing it: I'm making a weekly streamcast (livestreamed podcast). It starts today at 3pm CST.
I would have posted something sooner, to give more of a heads up, but I've been distracted as of late.
The site is twitch.tv/davrial

It will run until sometime around 5pm.

Prepare for wackiness and knowledge.

(Oh, and the finally is because I've wanted to do a podcast for years, but haven't had a mic/more recently a good mic to be able to do so)

Ardhanarishvara 5th Feb 2013, 11:13 PM edit delete reply
Neat. I like that we've got comics going again. Sweetness.

I have to admit, though, that Go looks a bit more... pretty than I remember him being. Specifically in the eyes, and for some reason he looks younger too, like a kid in a suit that's way too big for him.

It'll be an adjustment period.
Swagner 7th Feb 2013, 5:30 PM edit delete reply
I think that whenever you just start drawing a new character, it's hard to nail the proportions. In this case, I think what you're seeing is Go's torso being a little to long (or his legs being a little to short) in the first panel, at least compared to Morgenstern's artwork. I'm sure it'll all work out, though, especially when you consider how well she did the expressions in the previous page.
RICK BO 10th Feb 2013, 4:59 PM edit delete reply
If you go back an re-read a buncha pages (As is such of the sunday life of a MuGo Reader) I think the new legs are definitely a bit short. The chin could use a bit more sharpness to it, but not much.

As for the eyes, Well he's got pupils now? so he can see?
Super Mariachi Bros. 11th Feb 2013, 1:42 PM edit delete reply
Personally, I think his hair could be--free comic--a little more spiky. Aw, heck... how about a lot more spiky? How about having the spikes make him stronger?

Maybe give him--free comic--the ability to fly, and muscles that swell exponentially when he's in fire mode? That'd be--free comic--great, thanks.
BlueMario 11th Feb 2013, 5:02 PM edit delete reply

I was trying to suggest something absurd while emphasizing that we're not paying for the comic, so, I'd argue that we should just enjoy what we've got here. Well, at least I know what doesn't work. *shrugs*
blaZe9v 12th Feb 2013, 5:15 PM edit delete reply
Sorry if I sound insensitive, but do you have an estimate as to when the next page will be complete? Just curious is all.
Tobias7 12th Feb 2013, 10:56 PM edit delete reply
I'm fine with the long time between this one and the next one, I understand you had to move and things :) But I do think maybe a weekly schedule would be good so we would know when the next comic is, and if you had a crazy week (like moving) you could just skip the one time. Because I admit it is starting to feel like it's in limbo, I don't mind waiting at all but I do feel like waiting an indefinite amount of time after we waited months isn't good, so maybe a schedule?
thedandmom 13th Feb 2013, 2:11 AM edit delete reply
I unintentionally got super busy. The kickstarter i'm part of is doing a whole lot better than we all had thought and we're going to go ahead and start getting stuff going since there is so much in the design/artwork area that needs to get done. And when i say it's doing well, we are over half way to our first goal and the kickstarter started last Monday. On top of that I have my comic (which also hasn't been getting any pages), two kids, moving, and I also have a trip coming up.

I offered to help out with the comic at a point in time when I didn't have too much going on, and now I have loads going on. The things where I'm getting paid are going to take priority.
Morgenstern 13th Feb 2013, 4:01 AM edit delete reply
Guys, there's no real feasible way I can have an established schedule right now. Thedandmom's volunteering this work, and both of us have pretty bonkers schedules right now for entirely different reasons.

Oh, and I really do love the new art, thedandmom :) I think your art, Morg's art, and Cammiluna's art are all amazing and all have their own unique style that really fits into Mushroom Go.
