And because you can't have enough Mario Kart.

E3 is tomorrow so I'll be up late wrestling with time zones and internet connections once again.

While you're waiting for the hype-fest, rate, subscribe and leave a comment. Also check out Once Stung, where our heroine comes to grips with her new superpowers.

Hey, I think this is the first time I've drawn Roger without something horrible happening to him!

Fun fact: The way the three here are sitting is based on how my real-life siblings watch TV.

I can't draw karts.

Sorry for the delay. Dry Kirby is having some tablet issues.

I'm a fan of the Mario series, but not a fan of Mario Kart (or Mario Party, for that matter). It's still funny how the babies just seem there in MK and in other Mario Sports series, defying all laws of the space-time continuum - and Resetti's wrath (call back to a very early LV30PSY page! Page 27, to be precise).

So, guess they're watching this from the Employees room? And Roger finally catches a break.

I was surprised when I found out that the characters themselves affected the speed of the karts. APPARENTLY I CAN ONLY PLAY BOWSER AND WARIO NOW

Also, I'm going to throw out there that water can't be all that wet in the mushroom kingdom, after all, people breath and drive internal combustion engines in it all the time!

What is this.

Roger is in a strip...and he ISN'T being hurt?!

I DEMAND A REWRITE! :P

I dunno, he's looking bummed out at having to watch another commercial. I've seen some terrible commercials I'm my time.

He had nothing horrible happen to him in his first strip, too; and I bet there are quite a few others.

You'd have to wonder how that doesn't actually happen. Do they take naps in between races or something?

Also, Guybrush20X6, That smash bros comic has it's first page uploaded if you want to see it.

Cool. Um... How do you think I should go about introducing your characters to the story. (I already planned the event itself, but, I'd like to know witch of the characters will be in it)

I had an idea, I'll PM it to ya. Just wanted to wait until we get some more Smash info out of E3 first.

I don't understand still how a baby has the skills and intelligence to drive a cart. The can't. Believe me. I've tried

It makes no sense that the babies can also manage to hit some home runs in Mario Super Sluggers. I tried yesterday with all five babies in the game put in my team (Baby mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy and DK). I did at least one home run with each of them.

Which makes even less sense that them driving karts, if you ask me.

That setup bears some resemblance to how my siblings watch tv. Those babies are just so cute that it could be a ploy to get more of the "cute kitten video" watchers interested.

Uh... Why wasn't this ever colored?

Because I'm allergic to small children.
ESPECIALLY small children depicted in a fictitious medium.

If you've noticed, I also didn't color the Child of Light comic either.

What is wrong with you?...

Now that I think about it, I've been used a kleenex before. Fortunately my nephews are cute enough to get away with everything short of murder.
