And with a grand flourish, I completely botch the art on the third panel. OH WELL.

I'll give it a week or so before I say anything concrete, but I'm pretty sure the wednesday-saturday updates will be consistent. This is one of the "busier" pages I've done in a while, and I still managed to get it done on time. More on time than usual, actually.

So... yeah. Subscribe already. ...Please?

No matter what happens in life, no matter who you are or what you do, Life goes on, and where there's life, there's happiness.

How cute..... Palma is already dressing Go. But then again if my lady were wearing pants like that I'd probably let a T-shirt or two sneak into my wardrobe with her assistance too.....

The problem with selling merch is that Nintendo holds copyright.

Is that the fortune teller from A link to the past?!
Hobojoe007 23rd Feb 2011, 12:05 PM edit delete reply
@Havoc so what? Nintendo didnt create these characters, and I've seen other webcomics andsuch that actually sell t-shirts with official nintendo characters, i.e brawl in the family sells kirby t-shirts, metroid metal sells shirts with metroid on them, and hot topic has plenty of nintendo themed t-shirts

Seriously. I won't quit bugging till I get Birdo in the comic... or Luigi again lol. I think they should at least be in the background or something lol. Still loving the comic. Can't wait to see what happens next!
Zyn 23rd Feb 2011, 9:16 PM edit delete reply
I think Birdo should be the gay guy that joins their crew, like Gurren.

Just got done reading the comic up to this point (after clicking an ad I saw next to "It sucks to be Weegie") and I love it. I've always been prone to overthink the Marioverse and imagine what the species would look like in a more serious setting.

I've added the comic to my RSS reader, bookmarked it and saved the link in my Delicious.

Yeah, I'm in the same boat as graves and hobojoe.

Really? I had this account just hadn't used it except once...

@Kyte: I think it's supposed to be the Species of Fortune Tellers from Paper Mario.
Bonz0 25th Feb 2011, 11:12 AM edit delete reply
It's definitely of the mysterious shaman/wizard/fortune teller race,RedAuthar, but more specifically Morgenstern is using the ones from Super Mario RPG as the basis for the character appearing in the comic rather than the benevolent, bearded type seen in the Paper Mario series. Dark blue cloak, cyan bead/orb tying the hood, purple eyes, pink clothes underneath-it's all the same as the original sprite.

Oh, and in case it's ominous stare didn't give it away already he/she probably doesn't have pure intentions considering worst and nethe ones in SMRPG were enemies at utral shopkeepers at best. Not completely sure about this though since SMRPG is the only Mario RPG game I haven't played. Unless you count Super Paper Mario as an RPG.

dude. awsome. seriously, every time you down your work i want to punch you, then i look at go and martello and even guy and i want to hug you. the awsome that emanates from them and the style just fits the comic. you need to stop being so hard on yourself and just be like "yea. that shit is cool."
Bonz0 25th Feb 2011, 5:05 PM edit delete reply
I personally haven't even been paying attention to the art. It's the awesome plot, genius references (like the whole vim thing from Partners in time), and interesting characters that hooked me in.

I understand why he's down on his work though. This strategy of his seems to have succeeded in limiting the amount of comments criticizing his artwork. Most comments throughout the whole archive have been about the plot or are compliments concerning the art style. When you criticize your own artwork so openly then the nit picking perfectionists don't feel as incited to point it out for you.

To be honest, any difference in quality between the third panel and the rest of this page probably would have gone unnoticed by me if not for Morgenstern bringing it up. But I'm sure there are people who read this comic who have a better eye for art and would have talked about it if not for the fact that it was addressed immediately by the author.
model S 25th Feb 2011, 7:10 PM edit delete reply
to be honest i noticed no diffrence in quality. the colors seemed a little off but i chalked that up to sunlight. the entire comic is made of win, and the scratchy outlines fit the comic. i've played enough mario games in my day to know my characters, and yet matt still manages to hit me with a blindside. i remember only 2 shogun ants in SMRPG. i'm suprised he was remembered. maybe we'll get a peek at some of the boss enemies eventually, valentina anyone? come on!

But hey, don't point out your flaws. Don't have to hide them, but you don't need to shout them out either.
Just sayin.
