I realized they've been having this conversation since like July of last year

Love the panel arrangement in this one, and Fungus looks very Fungus-y.

Also managed to make McCoy look like a badass (as he is) while still look very bird-y. I approve!

I think by the end of the comic McCoy will just be drawn as a photo-realistic raven.

So what is Mr. "Fungus" (if that is his real name) anyways? A toad wearing a ski mask?

(Insert obligatory "Hooray for update!" here.)
Evdog 24th Feb 2013, 7:21 PM edit delete reply
I have two ideas:
1) Go from the future (but that's less likely than)
2) A previously unmentioned character that was with them on Bravo Brigand back in the day.

Always great to see a new comic. I'll also chime in on the whole "new art" conversation and say that McCoy's new look is completely different again, but still great to me.
Yay new comic!!! Go Morg and D&Dmom :D Great work as always!

There should be a "Characters Through the Artists/Ages" thing.

BlueMario 20th Feb 2013, 3:16 PM edit delete reply
What would be better:
-a compilation of each character in similar poses, from comics done by the different artist
-getting each artist to draw the main characters individually in the same poses?
blaZe9v 22nd Feb 2013, 1:10 PM edit delete reply
Not bad idea BlueMario, but Morg hasn't been able to contact Obfuscobble for a long time now.

Looks like the hand was planned in there but forgotten in later stages of page production. Gosh knows how many times that happened to me over the years!

I see, an on-going hand-based forgetfulness issue... I'm not sure there is any known cure!
BlueMario 25th Feb 2013, 10:58 AM edit delete reply
I'm afraid, m'am, you have HRF; Hand Rendering Forgetfulness. It is an unfortunate, but not uncommon, combination disease/disorder that causes an artist to occasionally forget to render a hand. However, I'm afraid there is even worse news; not only is there no know cure, but the symptoms will continue to increase in severity, escalating from forgetting to render on hat, to forgetting to render either. The symptoms will continue until YOU YOURSELF LOSE YOU HANDS!
Tobias7 20th Feb 2013, 10:41 PM edit delete reply
Woah. This is awesome! I was shocked when I saw the art, it looks amazing! I really really really want to see Martello though. Guess I'll just have to wait :) Keep up the good work, it's amazing to see new comics!!! :)

I stopped reading about a year before the Comic's Over thing... I meant to let the archive build up for a while and come back to it, but I lost the link and forgot the name.

I am so so so so so so SO so glad you didn't stop. I love the world you've crafted, and I'm dying to work my way through all the mysteries you've dragged us into. n_n
Cammiluna 8th Mar 2013, 4:47 AM edit delete reply
There's no point in hijacking the adspace for my comics these days. I hope what I did instead will prove to be interesting.
BlueMario 8th Mar 2013, 11:36 AM edit delete reply
Why not?
So are you the one that put the random Mario wiki link banner there?
Cammiluna 8th Mar 2013, 3:24 PM edit delete reply
Because most readers visit my pages regularly anyway. All I have to do is upload a new userpic everytime I update immortal fool.

But yes, I did this. high bid is 25 cents a day for the next 7 days. I laughed myself to sleep.
Swagner 8th Mar 2013, 12:48 PM edit delete reply
Indeed, I'm curious as to why you don't need the ads anymore. An artist of your caliber deserves all the attention she can get!
Cammiluna 8th Mar 2013, 11:46 PM edit delete reply
Like I said in response to someone else, many of this comic's readers visit my stuff regularly anyway. It would be silly. I will use the adspace when I start the HiEx kickstarter this fall, that will be fun!

I'm focusing my comic advertisements on webcomic sites that get at least 10K pageviews for dirt cheap bids in hopes to get more traffic sources (I get roughly six dollars in PW revenue in a four-month span). I had a spot on Gunnerkrigg for eight hours after a Monday update on just fifty cents, but then the bids went way high and last night it went past four dollars. But those 8 hours gave me 1000 pageviews for fifty cents. That's an accomplishment for me.
Nate1Daniels 30th Mar 2013, 1:36 PM edit delete reply
You've updated Immortal Fool, and yet you haven't uploaded a new userpic. Paradoxical much?
Cammiluna 30th Mar 2013, 5:18 PM edit delete reply
I just really really liked that one, but ok.

Last week aside, I think I've done good updating every Friday. The intermission is just two more pages.

So honestly, Since Morg and TheD&Dmom are so damn busy with stuff they actually get paid for, why don't we MuGo fans start our own kickstarter so we can get more comic pages? I dunno what we would do with what amount of money, but I'm sure hiring another artist would help somewhere along the way...
Tobias7 5th May 2013, 7:04 PM edit delete reply
Honestly, I'm not sure another artist would be all that great. Mushroom Go has a certain style about it, I feel like most artists just wouldn't be able to bring that flair to it. I think though, that perhaps we could use the money to actually pay for Mushroom Go, maybe help make it higher on the priority list (which is completely fair, we love you D&DMom for doing this for free, you should definitely get paid for the work you've done!)
thegreatandmightyone 5th May 2013, 10:12 PM edit delete reply
Another idea that may be plausible, is to have a string of guest artists draw for awhile. At least until our artist gets her feet under her (moving is so hard). I know we have a couple artists that hang out in the peanut gallery (I am one of them). They don't have to be the most beautiful strips in the world just to keep the story moving. It might also help bring the community closer together. I think it would be fun to have some of us fans get in on the action.
Tobias7 5th May 2013, 11:19 PM edit delete reply
That could be cool too, but Morg would have to be in on it. I know he wants a certain level of professionalism, but if they're guest strips to help while things are really busy, perhaps he'd be okay with that? I think it's a cool idea :)

On a related note, thedandmom has totally upped and quit


So now there's a whopping three pages of the comic with a totally different style, never to be seen again. Which was kind of why I was afraid of having a volunteer artist in the first place, but... hey. I've been scrambling to find some way to handle this with really no idea what to do from here. Or how to address it properly.

Which is why this is kind of blunt

Oh, but before anyone asks--I'm not quitting. I already realized that if I retired and then unretired and then retired again three months later I'd look like a total jackass, so I'm kind of stuck in a position where I need to push forward. I just don't know what the hell to do.

By the way, I still like your style the best. I understand if your next move is to look for a volunteer artist because you just can't stand drawing (I was that way writing my masters thesis), but if you do decide to continue drawing, know that you are VERY good at the art, even if it's not quite your thing.
Quietone 6th May 2013, 1:41 AM edit delete reply
try drawing a few 1-4 panel comics instead of a whole huge page. I love your work, found it by accident at around your 5th one. Smaller pages means less pressure to get them out and it becomes easier to schedule.
Tobias7 6th May 2013, 7:38 AM edit delete reply
I agree with Quietone IF you decide to continue the drawing. Reading from the beginning, you notice the comics get bigger and bigger and bigger. Towards the end you have these monstrous battles that are several times the length of the first few comics. What I propose is to go back to that size, and weeks where you want epic battles, skip one week. I have a feeling it wouldn't break the flow that much if we lost a week if we knew an epic battle was coming up.
Tobias7 6th May 2013, 7:49 AM edit delete reply
To see what we're saying, look at 133, 4 page long panels, compared to 1, 2, or 3, all of which are just a single page, but are very complete comics.
thegreatandmightyone 6th May 2013, 8:01 AM edit delete reply
So Morg, What do you want us to help you with? A kickstarter? Finding an artist? I mean really we all want to see this work just let us know what you need. And thanks for not quitting on us.
Cammiluna 7th May 2013, 11:02 PM edit delete reply
Finding an artist is not easy. I have a best friend that's been trying to start a webcomic for some time but needed an artist. Even when offering to pay, he couldn't get an artist and tumblr users snarked at him for charging too little. Several people agreed in the past but the artist would quit barely after the concept art stage.

Unless you're drawing XKCD, the art part of a comic is the longest and most tedious part of making a comic. A once-weekly full-color comic will sap any artist ten hours of their time every week.

My friend just finally got an artist to work with after over six months of searching. :D
