I wonder how respawning would affect someone. One the one hand, "Yay, not dead!" but on the other hand, "Oh no, I'm getting eaten, again!" Waddle Dee seems to take it in his stride anyway.

Kinda sad there was no Kirby at E3, thereby making this comic disjointed from it but it's only reasonable as in the last year or so wwe've had Kirby's Epic Yarn, Kirby's Return to Dreamland and Kirby Mass Attack so maybe he deserves a lttle break while Nintendo works Mario ragged.

Thanks to DryKirby64 for the original script and idea.
Oh, and don't forget we have a TVTropes pages that needs some love.

So, what do you guys think about the new comic width? I've had a few complaints about how awkward the old large size was (which, ironically, resulted from the fact that we needed the art to be larger), so I hope I've finally reached the median. (^_^)\/

For those of you who aren't aware, the character next to Arakune in the bottom-left panel is Bubsy the Bobcat. From what I understand, he pioneered the idea of cross-platform third-party games with the most unplayable title possible. Figured he's too obscure for any jokes to be made about him, so I decided to chuck him in as an extra. Q*bert's next! >:)

This was actually a rather easy one to color, lots and lots of oranges and two characters which I've already colored before.
But, as I was coloring this, I noticed something. Something drastic and insane, and yet it made perfect sense.
Look at Waddle Dee's parasol.

Weird. We got more than 200 views on this comic but no comments or ratings.
Without feedback we don't know if we're still funny or not.

I suspect the TVTropes link was sucking people away before they could comment/rate so it's removed. If you want it it's in the links section.

They've all gone into comas from shock after I made my realization.

I like your comics, but I didn't get this one

In Kirby games if you walk off and come back any enemies you defeated will reappear as if nothing happened.

Never played a Kirby game, but I do know about respawning enemies (I want to say Mario had that happen at some points?)... Guess some kids are just too young for some jokes? D:

Now that I know this fact, it does make the comic more amusing. X3 Although I was also under the impression it's just the fact that DeeDeeDee just has too many of those little guys. XD

Forgive my thickness, but what's the great parasol realization?
Guybrush20X6 edit delete reply
That it's the same as the logo of Umbrella Corp, the evil masterminds behind the T-virus in the Resident Evil games. D:<

Oh hey, my script.

I like what you guys did with this. The Bubsy cameo in particular was kind of funny. He looks like he's drunk or something. :p

And I have been editing the TV Tropes page pretty often...
