I'm betting 4 coins we will see Metal Go in the near future.

King B.'s look make me think about Mike Haggar.
Haya 31st Jul 2011, 12:36 AM edit delete reply
This is exactly what I though. 10 coins on metal Go.

Also I must say this page looks stunning.
Tommo 31st Jul 2011, 2:18 AM edit delete reply
But it is a Metal CAP that can turn Mario into metal. The only time a Metal MUSHROOM apeared was in Mario Party 6 & 7. Maybe a Mega Mushroom? However, I still call your 4 coins and raise by 25 (yes I'm insane =P).
Tommo 31st Jul 2011, 2:24 AM edit delete reply
Sorry for double post (I don't have ComicFury so I can't edit)

It could also be a Spring Mushroom or a Rock Mushroom. However, my money's still on Metal Go (all 29 coins) =P
Therazan 31st Jul 2011, 9:32 AM edit delete reply
Hmm... i need only 1 Coin to get a new life...


OK! All 99 coins on Metal Go!

This is absolutely awesome. Loooove King BB, and Palma's glare of death.


Not enough people saw this last time so I thought I'd link it again. It's Obfuscobble's original version of... I think page 82? Anyway, as you can see, He and Morgenstern do a lot of revision work before the final product gets uploaded.
tutter 31st Jul 2011, 12:24 AM edit delete reply
Ugh... villian 101, if you have an army of explosives that you can control from a safe location and talk through, don't show up in person. If he's lucky he won't repeat Plight's problem and start monolouging. If he does, then I know how this chapter is going to end for him.

There is something really appealing btw about the style in this one. I hope to see this style maintained for a while.

You can't bet 100 coins, I think you mean a 1-UP.
Evdog 31st Jul 2011, 1:12 AM edit delete reply
Watch out, Go! The "Vim" is really Phazon!

McCoy is back to the way he was. Personally, I liked the...ahem...more Real McCoy.

King Bob-Omb's face also reminds me of the Millenium Star from Mario Party 3.
Zer0-Limit 4th Aug 2011, 11:32 AM edit delete reply
Yeah, the less-realistic verion of McCoy is better in my oppinion. It adds a bit of a softer look to his character.

King Bob-Omb in Super Mario 64 should've looked like this. In fact, all of Super Mario 64 should be re-made in Mushroom Go art style.
EKA 31st Jul 2011, 2:34 AM edit delete reply
I took one look at the title, and thought, simultaneously "Rick Ashley" and "The game". Effectively being both Rick Rolled and losing the game at once.


And the King Bob-Omb.

Is it just me or King Bob-omb's stance and clothes look like McCoy's (with suspenders).
antimattergizmo 31st Jul 2011, 12:39 PM edit delete reply
This McCoy shows his age much better, but again go is looking very girly if only because of the first position he was in. btw so called a McCoy art change from last comic :P
SixWingedAsura 2nd Aug 2011, 7:34 PM edit delete reply
I think the reason that Go has been looking a little girly is that he might be being drawn in a semi-bishonen style? I could be (and am probably) wrong, but it's just a theory.

I notice that King Bomb-Omb doesn't have the robotic 'accent' the other bomb-ombs seem to.
Also, how in the world does that lock even work?
Marcus 1st Aug 2011, 9:28 AM edit delete reply
That's what I want to know. Maybe that's why it's 'not a problem'

Morgenstern 1st Aug 2011, 6:40 PM edit delete reply
I'm glad people are catching his "normal" speech, compared to the other bob-ombs.

Also, the lock works on a combination of Super Mario World fence physics and magic. The door probably doesn't even open so much as flip around when somebody punches it.

Since this is Mushroom Go and anything amazing can happen does anyone think that the King's arms can extend via the ropes/fuse that connects them to his shoulders?

They'd probably be kinda floppy, but sure.

I wonder if king bob-omb's hands, shoulders, head, and torso can independently explode, if need be.

I'd assume it's made of hard stuff so that people can't just break it.

I'm liking how Go is turning out. He looks like he doesn't sleep much anymore. Also, King Bomb-Omb in cargo pants.
Not Important 2nd Aug 2011, 5:19 PM edit delete reply
Good page. King Bob-omb looks awesome.

On that note, I'm curious. Does Odfuscubble or however you spell it design these characters him(?)self, or do you draw a rough sketch for him(?) to touch up?
Morgenstern 2nd Aug 2011, 10:29 PM edit delete reply
I do preliminary sketches for every comic, though Obfuscobble does often add little touches to the final version. So I still design the characters, dictate the pace of the comic and all that jazz, but some of the smaller things--like the K.K. on the bottom of Martello's boots, for example--is from his input.
Not Important 3rd Aug 2011, 2:29 PM edit delete reply
Okay. I was just wondering.

On a related note, I love it when you can leave a comment and actually EXPECT an answer.
Owl 3rd Aug 2011, 1:09 AM edit delete reply
I really like the glint of light on Palma's glasses. It's a nice touch. That's all I can think of to say right now cause I've been in acar for 10 hours and my brain no longer functions.

I wonder who McCoy's old teacher is. The Master from Paper Mario? Maybe Bobo the Crow. Didn't know about him until I read that one entry on Mushroom Go's WMG page on tvtropes. I can totally see him being one of those "Evil Mentor" type characters. One of those Martial Arts/Wizard types that wear the bamboo hats.

EDIT: In no way is this comment meant to be considered as a threat. The intention I had in mind while posting the comment was simply to do so as it could be considered humorous. In no way can I, nor do I plan to send a band of sand pirates, if such a thing should ever exist, after TROLL. Nor did I wish to start any form of altercation, as I will not force others to share my interests and opinions.

I had a really weird dream. I dreamt that I was Palma (which is weird thinking about it now, since I'm male), and me and Martello were fighting Thrive. He was a bit more human, and less plant, than in the comics though. For some reason, Sasha could use Magic with a staff...and half way through the fight, it became turn-based.
Then the dream turned into a Pokemon/Shift hybrid, so I'll stop there.
