Operation: Throw Money at Cammiluna is still a-go-go. We should be looking at a new page of Mushroom Go: Gnarly sooner than later.

My weekend got kinda cut in half! So this comic's a little shorter than I'd planned. More news as I remember it

Star1412 20th May 2013, 5:15 AM edit delete reply
Cool. Now I want to know what McCoy's talking about. I'm so glad this comics back:)
Also, is there a way to subscribe to Gnarly?
Morgenstern 20th May 2013, 5:26 AM edit delete reply
I have added a link for subscribing to it. I forgot that I'd hidden it from ComicFury so it wouldn't show up on my profile or anything, but that in turn also made it unsubscribable.

I really need to get around to sprucing up the Gnarly and Mondo sites, but... blah

For those who have yet to figure out what that "Gimmick" is, will it be explained next update?
Morgenstern 20th May 2013, 6:17 AM edit delete reply
I'm still debating whether to bust it out on the next page, or be a total jerk and cut back to Go
Henix 20th May 2013, 7:43 AM edit delete reply
If you went and cut back to Go I think at least half of us would hate you.

But it'd be kinda funny. :P
BlueMario 20th May 2013, 8:22 AM edit delete reply
If I were you, Morg, I'd go with one panel of STARTING to reveal the gimmik, and then cut back to go.

...I hate myself and my storytelling nack
ExarArcian 20th May 2013, 9:10 AM edit delete reply
That's devious and horrible. I kind of hope it happens. It'd twist the dramatic tension knife in the paradoxically worst and best ways.
Cammiluna 20th May 2013, 3:23 PM edit delete reply
Cut back to Martello! Whatever happened to her (we never got to see her drawn by the last artist, awwwwww)
BlueMario 20th May 2013, 3:34 PM edit delete reply
Wait my movie instincts just kicked in: it must be a 3 panel; first starting to reveal the gimmick; second showing Go about to strike; and third showing Martello, either as the place is collapsing, or bursting though the debris if it's already collapsed
Guest 20th May 2013, 3:47 PM edit delete reply
I don't know what I want to have happen anymore!
I like the idea of it jumping back to Go or Martello just because.

I would have posted earlier but my school blocks comic fury.

Hey TheDandDMom, if you're still around, when things quiet down for you, could you draw some fan art for us? I know we were a little harsh with you, but we'd still love you to be a part of the community and I still want to see your Martello!
thedandmom 27th May 2013, 1:55 PM edit delete reply
Yes I am still around. And maybe. I'm currently about halfway through my pirate project and I'm actually preparing to launch a kickstarter. If I have time and need something for doodling, I might do you guys up something. I understand you guys might have been upset, but I was struggling with my work load and couldn't concentrate on anything. I didn't mean for my leaving to be on bad terms.
Tobias7 28th May 2013, 8:29 AM edit delete reply
No hard feelings, you tried, and you successfully restarted Mushroom Go :) So thank you, and I'm glad to see you're sticking around.
Tobias7 20th May 2013, 5:24 PM edit delete reply
Ah but if you cut back to Go, you'll get to reveal what Go's looking for on the Go Kart grounds. So either way you have to reveal something :P

Could always cub back to Sasha. Nothing left to show there

Obviously, he just wanted McCoy to hug him! ;~;
blaZe9v 20th May 2013, 12:01 PM edit delete reply
But didn't that face already get smashed in by McCoy?
the_unchosen_one 21st May 2013, 2:30 AM edit delete reply
No, just the nose is in the back of his skull. There's still plenty of face to smash
blaZe9v 20th May 2013, 12:06 PM edit delete reply
Bottom of the page. You still need to change "onward" to "- 136" about thedandmom's artwork.

What if Guy was like the Black Bolt from Marvel, where, if he ever talked, the concussive force would deafen and/or kill people?
Star1412 21st May 2013, 5:25 AM edit delete reply
But he has talked.
Amaare 21st May 2013, 5:28 AM edit delete reply
Or he talks all the time but no-one hears him?
Swagner 21st May 2013, 10:30 AM edit delete reply
Perhaps his normal voice is so high it can only be heard by dogs and small children?
Amaare 21st May 2013, 9:38 PM edit delete reply
Almost exactly what I meant! :D

Is it bad that I prefer this art style over the last one?
Tobias7 20th May 2013, 5:23 PM edit delete reply
I prefer it too, the other art style is "higher quality" and is very good but this one just fits Mushroom Go like a glove
Kerkerkerkerkero 20th May 2013, 8:14 PM edit delete reply
Obviously this guy is playing with emotions, only to reveal, in his words, that McCoy's secret is "I'm always angry"
Amaare 20th May 2013, 10:03 PM edit delete reply
I'm reasonably sure I know what his gimmick is, but as I deplore spoilers I won't say. :P

Tell me, or I'll beat you up! `^`

Nooo! That's not fair, I can't fight back!

Predictions and spoilers are two completely different things. You can predict everything without it being a spoiler if you're not sure about it...
So please... Share your... Ideas...
Amaare 29th May 2013, 11:02 PM edit delete reply
You make a good point, but I have an annoying habbit of being right when predicting the future :P

Cammiluna 22nd May 2013, 1:12 AM edit delete reply
I just realized something!

If the gang is in disguise and Guy managed to wear a different shyguy suit, why is he still in that gashed-up mask instead of another one?

A handful of go-kart spectators consisting of a turtle, toad, raven, shyguy and pianta are a dead givaway in the first place but damn!
Futurevgd 22nd May 2013, 1:22 AM edit delete reply
Don't you dare use logic here!
the_unchosen_one 22nd May 2013, 2:30 AM edit delete reply
Masks may have a personal significance among Shy Guys. It might be what is considered their face, and there are small differences inperceptable to other races. Something like that might make them only have a single mask each
Tobias7 22nd May 2013, 9:21 AM edit delete reply
I got the feeling the "disguises" were more for fun than anything else. I really don't think Martello thought she would have to hide from anyone, or at least that the disguises would hide them, I think she just wanted to have a little fun outing.
Tobias7 22nd May 2013, 9:21 AM edit delete reply
Oh and Cammi, you should so draw Martello telling the gang they will be wearing disguises ;)
BlueMario 22nd May 2013, 12:28 PM edit delete reply
If Cam drew that, it would obviously be another edition of Trickster Martello
Cammiluna 22nd May 2013, 9:26 PM edit delete reply
Too bad I'm drawing Kid Icarus instead.

BlueMario 27th May 2013, 4:23 PM edit delete reply
Dangit, Cam, quit drawing things of things that I cant't play!
Amaare 22nd May 2013, 5:28 PM edit delete reply
It would seem that Shyguys take the line "We are the masks we wear" A little more literally than most.
BlueMario 27th May 2013, 4:24 PM edit delete reply
SO, what was up with that massive page-wide downtime morg? Did the ComicFury server that hosted MuGO crash?

Morgenstern 28th May 2013, 1:24 AM edit delete reply
I'm not sure anybody ever figured out what was actually wrong with the page

So uhh, hopefully it doesn't happen again.

Between my lack of access to the archive, a screwed up weekend scheduling and a migraine that left me partially blinded for like six hours, page 140 might be running a bit on the late side. Deeerp
Tobias7 28th May 2013, 8:30 AM edit delete reply
Sounds like a tough week. Don't worry about us, even if you have to skip a week that's fine. :)
Swagner 28th May 2013, 10:39 AM edit delete reply
Ugh, migraines are the worst! And don't worry about us, we might just be the most patient fanbase this side of half-life 3. You take care of what you need to!
Amaare 28th May 2013, 9:57 PM edit delete reply
Yes we are, though I would hesitate to compare us to Beyond Good and Evil 2 fans in terms of patience.
Tobias7 28th May 2013, 11:01 PM edit delete reply
I LOVE BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL!!! It's like my favorite game.
Tobias7 28th May 2013, 11:02 PM edit delete reply
Well, one of them. The World Ends with You, Kingdom Hearts, Phoenix Wright, Ghost Trick... Okay so maybe I have a lot of favorite games

Ghost Trick?!
Wow, I didn't realise anyone else had even played that! It is good fun isn't it?
Tobias7 31st May 2013, 9:20 AM edit delete reply
I LOVE IT!!! I was just listening to the "intermission" song last night. Oh and "last desperate struggle" is totally amazing. I also rewatched the final chapter recently, it's so powerful, I wanted to cry. I can't wait to get a friend into that game and play it with her.
Amaare 2nd Jun 2013, 10:15 PM edit delete reply
I haven't go there yet, only just finished chapter 4. No spoilers please!

If people were wanting theories on fungus's gimmick, I have an idea.
Tobias7 29th May 2013, 11:26 AM edit delete reply
I'm curious about your idea. My idea is that he's trying to play their emotions against them, first he tries to get McCoy to think he's a failed hero, then he tries to get McCoy to think about how Sasha cares about him, then he tries to get Guy to think he's all alone. I feel like I'm missing something though.
Star1412 29th May 2013, 2:11 PM edit delete reply
Your idea probably makes more sense than mine. I think that for whatever reason, he's just trying to get Guy to talk. I'm not sure why. Maybe to see if he can figure out who guy is under his mask?
the_unchosen_one 30th May 2013, 1:18 AM edit delete reply
They might all be trying the emotion thing... Isn't that very similar to what KBB was doing to Palma? It seemed like Jack was doing that to Cap'n too, but he just got fed up with her
Star1412 30th May 2013, 10:59 AM edit delete reply
hmm. That's a good point.
Maltor Drey 30th May 2013, 7:24 AM edit delete reply
Argh, I knew I needed to keep checking this. I haven't been here in what, six months? Longer?

Damn it, Bonz0, why didn't you tell me this was still updating. (Assuming you are the same Bonzo as the other Bonzo that I know but whatever.)

And yeah, I think I have an idea what Fungus's gimmick is.
Bonz0 30th May 2013, 10:22 PM edit delete reply
In a way, isn't this better? If you had been frequenting the comic this whole time you would have witnessed some pretty boring periods where the comic was on indefinite hiatus and nobody was sure what was going to happen.

But you get to come back to a pleasant surprise that the comic is alive and being illustrated by Morg. Plus, you get to read a handful of pages instead of just one.

Basically, you got to skip to the good part.
Bonz0 30th May 2013, 10:31 PM edit delete reply
Also, who are you?
Maltor Drey 31st May 2013, 2:49 AM edit delete reply
Okay, you're probably a different Bonzo then. That's an actual word, isn't it? I guess the Internet is a pretty big place.

The guy I was talking about is a dude from the MSPA Forums.
