Roll reveals the reason that Mega Man hasn't show up in the comic, we learn who the hospital is dedicated to and Gardevoir shows up for the first time since January. Lotta stuff going on this week

Oh, and...
Ta-da! We're a weekly comic again!

I see your Mii hands and raise you chess people.

So, like,
DryKirby was feeling some major artblock so to switch things up he came to me and was like "What if YOU do the lineart and I color?"

And I was like "okay".

So that's why this comic is different looking.

That said, I want all of you to know that any time anyone brought up Mega Man appearing I was silently laughing behind my computer. In a very evil fashion.

While this is the first time Gardevoir shows up since January, it's also the first time White Mage shows up since November. Poor gal.

Coloring this was an interesting experience because I tried to match the regular style as close as possible, and I think I did that pretty well. The only other thing I have to say is that I spent at least an hour researching what to color WM's healing spell. I decided on green, since that represents Cura in FFI -- heal a single target for minor damage.

Also, Box -- you did a fantastic job with the lineart. It's unlike anything we've seen before in the comic. S'great. Now, let's go back to laughing maniacally....

Is THAT why Roll was so *squee* when she learned that Megaman was going to appear in Smash Bros.?
Or was it at least a contributing factor?
Koopario edit delete reply
Well, Rock IS her bro. Wouldn't you be excited if your family member was in Smash?

My prize? Please listen to this, and comment on my taste!
Press 4 to get right into the action, or watch the whole thing to see what's going on.

...I'm trying to think of how Mega died, but I'm distracted by what seems to be the dead Lords in Panel 1. Those two need a new tactician.

To be fair, it's not that difficult for Mega Man to die. For all we know, he just bumped into a hedgehog and instantly exploded.

Ah yes, my evil chuckling can continue.

My suspicion is this:

When the VG Worlds sort-of merged to create this place, Megaman was one of those who tried to police it. And one who truely died, due to a lack of lives. He hadn't realised that he had lost all but one life in the mergers of the VG Worlds, and was quickly killed.

And, no, I do NOT count there being a number of different model Megaman as Megaman being dead. They have a janitor who "dies" on what seems to be an hourly basis. If there's someone running around with Megaman's memories, he's still alive and Roll was just overreacting.

I thought smash 4 revived mega man...

Dun Dun Dun...? We'll find out in due time what happened, but for now, that's quite the whammy line.

Heh, Dumbledork.

Great art, by the way, Box!

I'm sorry, how?

i mean, 1: robot, 2: video game. this literally makes no sense whatsoever.

The universe wanted him dead.

And by "the universe", we mean Guybrush20X6.
Negaman1020 (Guest) edit delete reply
i feel like i should be much less satisfied with that answer then i actually am.

i do expect an in universe explanation though.

Hooray! your a weekly comic again! i finally get to remember how it feels to check every week-end instead of every month
model S edit delete reply
model S
Can't tell if shyguy or arakune?
Darius Drake (Guest) edit delete reply
Arakune. Shyguy's have feet. And, looking at pictures of Black Shyguy's on Google, they'll likely have coloured feet.

Also, Arakune's ALWAYS slouching off in the waiting room.

Woo! Comic update! I can tell this is going to be quite the interesting story line!

After many time of lurking, I finally decide to post. Very cool comic, quite original and cool. Usually funny, but for now, drama is coming. Let's see how Rock died.

Also a suggestion. I bet this one is in people's minds from some time now: it would be cool to see the Five Night's at Freddy's animatronics at some point (after current story line). Those REALLY need teraphy...
Redandgreen43 edit delete reply
Oh, that makes a bit of sense, actually. But I wouldn't have said that he died. More along the lines of dismantled, maybe? He's a robot, robots don't go down easy. And if he was... well, "dismantled", couldn't someone maybe rebuild him? Maybe a fat guy with a white beard and a pomp, perhaps?
