Alright, I lied about skipping this 'til Saturday. As much as I hate posting something like 3/4ths of the way into the day after it's due, I think I'd feel worse if I just outright skipped an update. So here it is, crazy late. Me so sorry.

If you haven't signed up for ComicFury and subscribed yet, I highly recommend it. With a ComicFury account you can edit your posts in the comments, type more in the comments box (I think?), have a nifty avatar when you comment, AND subcribe to other ComicFury comics so that you can be notified when your favorite comics update.

And that's like... alot of stuff, man.

Love how you gave them 'hands' for their tasks.

Though now i'm starting to question the Koopa Army even more.

Making SENTIENT bombs.

To explode.

...is Guy AFRAID of them?
I mean, yeah, they ARE dangerous...but they're ADORABLE...or, at least, Palma thinks so. And I have a sneaking suspicion that the captain is going to accept...either because of Palma or because it would be rebellion against the Koopa Army...Or maybe because they all want to be free?

On a totally unrelated note, just got done watching Thor. I liked it better than Hulk, not quite as much as Iron Man. Visually mindblowing, but I felt a few things were kind of rushed along or stuffed in there and needed a bit more development. Still really good movie, though, and really good acting.

Don't think I've ever been as attracted to Natalie Portman as I was in this movie.

In one of the Paper Mario games, a friendly Bob-Omb explains that exploding is no different for them than throwing a punch is for us. Is exploding more permanent for them in this continuity?

The Koopa Army may be doing the wrong thing here. If the Bob-ombs can start reproducing (a la "Robots") then the Koopas could just swoop in every once in a while to scoop up free explosives.
BurningFinger!!!!!!! 13th May 2011, 6:39 AM edit delete reply
This is why my sentient bombs are suicidal and kept asleep until the target is in sight. They wake up and are all "OhmyGod!Lookatthat!Ihavetoexplodeonthatshit!" Then they go blow up on it. (They also have really accelerated thinking speeds, hence the lack of spaces.) But I don't think I could make an adorable bomb. That would hurt too much. Maybe one like the Thirty Second Bomb from Starship Troopers (The book not the movie) but not an adorable one. (It occurs to me that Starship Troopers is a really old book, so to sum it up, the thirty second bomb counts down out loud after being thrown, just so that your enemies know how screwed they are.)

It is entirely possible that non-dying Bob-ombs exist in this universe. It all depends on method of causing the explosion. Sadly, most of those do NOT work for the Koopas. It is entirely possible that these poor saps are an unholy hybrid of the Mushroom Kingdom's sapient, low yield, Pink Bob-ombs and the Koopa Kingdom's sub-sentient, high yield Black Bob-ombs.

What’s the difference between a napalm strike and a fission bomb? In this particular situation, just the amount of atomic radiation left afterwards.

@I_am_Solid_Snaek: Get your species in order! I'm a Kriken! (Note: This is referring to the icon/avatar I was using at the time the comment was made. My icon may or may not have changed since then.)

@obfuscobble: While I like the drawing itself, a couple of things bug me when I think of the character as McCoy. But I could easily believe that it’s a drawing of McCoy’s younger brother. Hmm…the more I think about that idea the more I like it. McCoy having a badass younger brother (but not quite as badass as, pardon the pun, the real McCoy), who, from the looks of him, could also be a wise man. (Λm I the only one who thinks this guy looks wise?) Hmm…HEY MORGENSTERN! TΛKE Λ LOOK ΛT THIS IDEΛ!

Morgenstern 13th May 2011, 11:18 PM edit delete reply
Alright, here's the skinny.

For numerous numerous reasons--and I know this is going to suck, but bear with me--I'm going to be slowing down the update schedule. While I initially had the time for two pages a week, I've lately been rushing myself more and more, and many of these aren't coming out as well as I'd hoped--both in terms of art and storytelling. I haven't decided if I'm going to udpate on Wednesdays or Saturdays, but it'll be one of the two.

I will probably miss this first week's update (i.e., no comic tomorrow) because I'm looking into other, much bigger changes. It's been a pretty crazy night for me, and I'm sorry if any of the upcoming changes are a bit abrupt.

But if this pans out like I want it to, this is going to be very exciting.

The people on that stream...yeah, it's like they act like they've done something wrong whenever they like a certain aspect of the comic. Why do they preface every positive comment with "I actually like..."? I feel like I could make a drinking game out of how many times it's said.

I know it's not intentional but you give off the implication that you dislike everything else about the comic when you talk like that. The tone might change later in the video, though. I'm only a fourth of the way into the first video.

@ Marcus:
I could imagine not only the military doing horrible, sadistic things for the sake of war, but the Koopa Government (that is, a Koopa nation not run by King Bowser) conditioning the population to not care about what the military is doing (reminiscent of "Brave New World").

...of course, then it would have to be explained why Bowser isn't in charge, with his large military. Never mind, then.

Ow...my ears. They become a trio of damn hyenas when they get to the page with Mario. We get it, Mario doesn't look like that in the games. Fuck, when are they going to realize that this is supposed to be a more serious version of the continuity? These guys take overreaction to a ridiculously annoying level.

And why do they call everything that's cool "Anime"? All fights are anime. All faces are either made fun for looking too silly or are criticized for being too "anime" when they're serious. Powers? Anime. Anthropomorphic piranha plants? Anime. No real complaints for a certain panel or page? Then it's too anime.

The streams they do are usually focused on webcomics they don't like and they criticize everything wrong with it. Webcomics like Dominic Deegan, Pibgorn and anything else they find hideous. As for all the anime references, they're used to bad webcomics using anime tropes as writing and art short cuts. Cliches are easily abused, unless the person using them actually UNDERSTANDS how to use them correctly, which Morgenstern clearly does.

I've got a pretty good idea of why Guy and Go are hiding behind McCoy (if that is what is happening). They are probably quite anxious about-Oh, I don't know; being in a castle full of walking one man 4th of July's!? I would probably hide behind the tallest person.
...Unfortunately, I would probably be the tallest person in any given group (and thusly I would be the human blast shield).

Uh...would Bob-ombs be considered heavy weapons or bio weapons? Or bio-tech weapons? Is there a difference between bio and bio-tech weapons?

@Morgenstern: So, are you going to update on Wednesdays or Saturdays? I don’t think you stated which yet (but given I completely skipped part of a comment with next to no conscious thought, I could have just missed it).

Mr. Vareel 17th May 2011, 12:20 AM edit delete reply
Mr. Vareel
@Morgenstern: So, updates on Saturdays? Works for me, not that I (or anybody other than you for that matter) had any say in first place. By the way, when you say "big plans", are you talking about plans for the storyline, the comic itself or something in the real world (i.e. something that isn't directly related to Mushroom Go)? I mean…well…for example, something like new plot elements or ideas (storyline), a change in a character's or object’s appearance without a reason in the story (comic itself), or getting a job as a video game character designer (real world). I won’t persist if you don’t want to answer, but if you do, I’d prefer you just say what type of plan it is (story/comic/real world) rather than its elements.

@NotJoe: I’m all for crazy possibilities (and jokes)! But in all seriousness (please don’t), replace “is obviously” with “could be”, and you have a believable statement there. Λnd now for a joke! Do you mind if I call you “Josh”?

Mr. Vareel
@Metal D. Rose: Bear cubs are (generally regarded as) cute. They're so cute that almost no human will regard having a teddy bear as strange. Childish maybe, but not strange or odd (outside the oddity of being childish). But bear cubs are still dangerous (at least with some kinds of bears). I doubt most healthy adult humans can fight a bear cub and win without using a gun (or knife, or some other weapon). Λnd I haven't even gotten to the if-you-get-near-my-baby-I-will-eat-your-face mamma bear! Just because something is dangerous doesn't mean it can't be cute (to most people) too. Isn't there an idiom about that? Isn’t it "Beware of Greeks bearing gifts"? Wait…no, that's not it. Maybe "Λppearances can be deceiving"? Ehm...no. Closer, but that's not it either. Λnybody else know what I'm thinking of? This will keep me up tonight! But MY POINT IS that plenty of dangerous things are cute. Or you could say that plenty of cute things are dangerous. Whatever floats your boat.
Oh, and don’t try to guess a reference using only information about its author. (In other words, don’t try to guess my reference using only the fact that I made it.) That ruins the fun (for me at least).
[Disclaimer: all of the information related to bears (and their relationship with humans) used in this comment came from various pockets of data within my own head.

@ Mr. Vareel and Therazan I know that dangerous things can be cute. (Like bears as you said.) Thing is, who would think something like Bob-ombs are cute? The only Bob-omb I consider "cute" is Bombette. Otherwise, I'd pee my pants if I saw a lit Bob-omb coming after me. (Okay maybe not pee my pants but I would run like a bat out of hell)

Also, Mr. Vareel, did I get the reference wrong? I know how you like making references to Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, so I thought that would be it. :p (To those who are confused, Mr. Vareel and I know each other in real life and are good friends.)

@Metal D. Rose: Thanks for announcing that. Why don't you tell them my name and address too? (That was said with sarcasm so thick you could use it as syrup on your pancakes.)
You may (or may not) have gotten the reference correct. But my point is that you shouldn't try to guess a reference unless you KNOW OR HΛVE Λ PRETTY GOOD IDEΛ WHΛT IT IS, REGΛRDLESS OF WHO MΛDE IT, WHERE THEY MΛDE IT, ΛND WHEN IT WΛS MΛDE. You didn't do this; you took a shot in the dark, and the only way for you to know whether you actually hit someone is for you to ask, “Did I get you?” (any response to that is obviously questionable at best) or for someone else to turn on the lights. If you don't have any real idea, then don't say anything until you do (or, using the metaphor, don’t shoot if you can’t see the target).

@Therazan: "ERROR! The comment you are trying to edit is not yours." That is the message I get when I press the delete...ah...button...when I press the delete button on a comment that I made. I can edit my comments, but it won't let me delete them. I'm a bit upset about that, but I don't know how to navigate the forums well enough to troubleshoot the problem. (Well, I CΛN navigate the forums, but searching for a little piece of information would take a lot of time I’m not willing to give and patience I don’t currently have.)

@I_am_Solid_Snaek: HΛ HΛ HΛ! Oh, man! That was about the last thing I expected to see (probably because it was already posted in this comments section)! That just made my day! Thanks!

There is no "game": there is only The Force.

@Grimlock13: I was thinking of “The cake is a lie!” But what you said works too.

Λlright, nobody seems to have gotten the reference I mentioned earlier (or just hasn’t posted it), so I will now say what it is.

[Bowser’s Kingdom] (Episode 6)
Hal: So apparently I was able to get in contact with management about getting paid.
Jeff: Well it’s about damn time! Jeeze it’s already been five episodes! I don’t think we can go any further with that joke.

Λnd there you have it!
