I can think of at least three pages that probably make more sense now.

EKA 16th Jul 2011, 11:16 PM edit delete reply
Awesome. I love Palma's logic.

Also, I see explosions in Go's future. Lost of 'em.

Yay! I was just about to give up for the night. This comic rocks!

Awesome- can't see any problems at all.

I can see Go lighting up all the Bob-oms' fuses with his fire.

If you make a Comic Fury account (It's free!), you can delete and even edit your posts! Plus, you can subscribe to the comic to show Morgenstern your support!

While I can say that I miss the old art style, the story remains as gripping as ever.

Hey, look at that! I'm within the first 20 posts!
Guest 17th Jul 2011, 1:00 AM edit delete reply
Yeah! Sasha looks like Sasha! And palma's fixed too! All we need is McCoy and Go now!
Guest 17th Jul 2011, 1:01 AM edit delete reply
Edit: go looks better now too. Just McCoy then!
Evdog 17th Jul 2011, 4:59 AM edit delete reply
I think they all look good this time. @Guest: What exactly is it that you don't like about McCoy's new look?
Corvianking 17th Jul 2011, 1:18 AM edit delete reply
I think this page is probably the best so far, in terms of the new art style. Really liking it, though sitting down Guy looks a bit awkward. Otherwise I really dig the new style now.
fuzzy3158 17th Jul 2011, 4:20 AM edit delete reply
I think I'm getting used to the art style already as these pages strike me as really nice.
Evdog 17th Jul 2011, 5:02 AM edit delete reply
I bet Guy's got Go's backstory all figured out in there.

Yep lol, I bet he does!

...no, he's OBVIOUSLY figuring out the Question to the Answer of Life, the Universe, and Everything.

I said the QUESTION to the Answer.
Everybody knows the Answer's 42.

No Agent, he figured THAT out when he drew a picture with blue, green, and black by using only a blue crayon and a green crayon.

But if I told people that, then it'd be a spoiler, wouldn't it.

i see go being in ALOT of pain in the future.
Futurevgd 17th Jul 2011, 9:13 AM edit delete reply
maybe McCoy should stop smoking around highly sensitive bombs. That explode on contact. Does that matter to anyone else?

You're using LOGIC! KILL HIM!

Fantastic! I don't see a single thing that could be improved on this one. I really like how this new style has turned out. Keep up the good work you two! I dont think it needs any more change :)
infinity6 17th Jul 2011, 10:18 AM edit delete reply
Wooooow. I actually really like it. It looks really good.
Sails 17th Jul 2011, 10:51 AM edit delete reply
I'm aware I'm beating what is probably a dead horse, but Go's face...is everyone actually happy with it? Using Morgenstern's past work as a base, I crafted this edit: http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b353/sonicandtails/goedit.png

Opinions? I find this style to be superior. Adjustments are the mouth being moved a tad, with the eyes becoming less...crazy.
Rage-Nakasa 17th Jul 2011, 12:38 PM edit delete reply
all was done was the eyes? i personally like both. your is using a simpler version of his eyes.. and I like some of the detail of the new look. how the eyes look are good, but the detail on the pupils in the new style look good to. maybe a compermzise can be made.
Ranter 17th Jul 2011, 6:38 PM edit delete reply
You should have fixed the proportion while you were at it.
DemonBlood 18th Jul 2011, 3:48 AM edit delete reply
I dunno Sails... to me, Go looks alittle desperate in your version. I don't think that's better.
Rage-Nakasa 17th Jul 2011, 12:33 PM edit delete reply
hahaha they got surounded. and I think there might be a small relationship starting with Palma and Go. even if it's cause she's intresed in if he has a deep dark secret... which he probley does XD
antimattergizmo 17th Jul 2011, 2:49 PM edit delete reply
I'm geussing McCoy has ANOTHER new face style that will be revealed?
Also the title of the comic fits with the struggeling few that still don't except the art (over used word imo)
Ranter 17th Jul 2011, 6:33 PM edit delete reply
Everyone looks absolutely perfect to me, as far as style goes, but Go's proportion is really off I think. I'm really having trouble deciding whether the first or second panel is my favorite-- the art as a whole in the first panel is awesome, but Palma's expression in the second panel is just...so...GREAT! I also love Palma's design, and the background, as usual, is right on.

But, so that people don't get confused, I also still like Morg's art as well. People are allowed to want to watch more than one artist.

The bob omb, sets me off, but I'm fine as long as it doesn't get set off... heh, heh...

I know, replying to my own comment is... weird, but I mean the first panel one, the third panel one on the right is awesome.

team sandship would have been more of a joke. both are vehicles.

...or simply "The Chainless".
model S 18th Jul 2011, 10:56 PM edit delete reply

no because that would imply the entire crew including guy, martello, and palma, team sandship = team rocket it makes more sense that way.

Mr Pibbleton
I think people were predicting an ambush when they first started following the bob-omb, but I liked how it was revealed in this. I have a feeling that when the automatons think they have the upper hand on McCoy and Go, they're going to forget, he's a smoker.
Whistle-tall 18th Jul 2011, 1:59 AM edit delete reply
Best part of bob-ombs: They go kamikaze with only a little instigation. Worst part of bob-ombs: Same thing.

Awesomest part of bob-omb's: watching what happens afterwards.
Evdog 18th Jul 2011, 7:07 AM edit delete reply
Especially this kind of Bob-Omb:

Lurker speaking. Very much like this comic. It is good you offloaded the artwork to obfuscobble. Obfuscobble's work is excellent. With time free, now you can focus on story better - and it is starting to show. Back to my lists.
BlueMario 19th Jul 2011, 10:33 AM edit delete reply
I think that the art's good now. This will be my last comment on Obfuscobble's work.

Anyway, is it just more the more people you have the more enemies you find?
nergal 19th Jul 2011, 4:23 PM edit delete reply
Your old bold and outgoing artwork is what pulled me in. I always loved comics and wanted to share mine, but there were so many comics with great artwork that I couldn't do it. Then I saw your work and thought that there may be a chance I can make some popular one too. Your story is great and there are perfect plots and twists, but I loved your old artwork the most. To me, the only character that got better was the captain and go's clothes are very strange...

Eh, I need to get off my lazy toosh and make a new one anyway. I appreciate it, though.
Evdog 22nd Jul 2011, 2:42 AM edit delete reply
By the way, Morgenstern, are we going to hear from Obfuscobble at all in these forums now, since he's drawing this stuff and all?
Ranter 22nd Jul 2011, 3:26 AM edit delete reply
I wouldn't be suprised if he were nervous about entering, to be honest.
I_am_Solid_Snaek 22nd Jul 2011, 10:39 AM edit delete reply
There's no way that Obfuscobble should be nervous/scared... he's a great artist, and the people who couldn't stand his style at first are now complimenting/giving him constructive criticism!

Hey, Palma looks a lot better! I think Obbie's gotten to the point where art purists are at least a little satisfied and the rest are extremely happy! Yay, Obbie!

Obfuscobble should be happy to speak. There are fans here. I look forward to words from O. Things that mark and make the week go by:
mushroom go
music blogs
reading the saturday paper
trying to understand Obfuscobbles angles
practicing playing piano, especially works from Myazaki movies.
food shopping

Stephen Foster 13th Jun 2012, 6:28 PM edit delete reply
To be honest, can't say that I like your new style as much as the old one. Don't like Go as much anymore, still a good comic, however.
