Part of me wondered whether the joke of Dream Eater effecting Tidus was too obscure and full of Final Fantasy X spoilers but then I remembered that Tidus has a lot of haters and seeing him hurt is bound to be hilarious to them. Periphery Demographics NO JITSU!

Erasing the text around the characters in panel 5 so it all fit in was a pain and three quarters.

Incidentally if you know any good free/cheap fonts that have an upper case and a lower case let me know. Otherwise just comment.

I'm not entirely sure why I decided to make the front desk some weird stone with tiny, tiny turquoise specks scattered throughout it. I didn't want to make something else wooden, I guess.
Unfortunately my only knowledge of Final Fantasy is the plot to Final Fantasy 1, and that it's filled with bisho guys with giant-ass swords.

This comic, I feel, perfectly expresses daily life working at MM Memorial Hospital. The character interactions between Gardevoir, her split personality, Chansey, Roger, and the Space Quest Text Box really speak out to me.

Anyone up for a "Random Object Collector Man" cosplay?

Last week's contest is still running -- make sure to comment!!

The game begins with Tidus (the guy) seemingly being catapulted to another world where his city was destroyed and is now the resting place of a monster called Sin that Yuna (the girl) leads a pilgrimage to destroy. Tidus eventually learns his world never really existed but was a dream world of reality without Sin and Tidus was made real to help destroy Sin. Eventually Sin is destroyed and Tidus fades after a teary goodbye to Yuna. Somehow he returns at the end of the fan-service filled sequel Final Fantasy X-2 but that's another story.

Basically Tidus is a dream so Drowzee eats him. It's good to see the physical humour was enough to make up for missed references.

5th panel killed me and could have ended the comic nicely, but then the 6th panel appears and confuses me. Can someone explain?

The original ending had Chansey thinking she doesn't get paid enough to put up with all the crap that goes on everyday but we ran out of room. Thought the annoyed face was enough to get that idea across.

【・ヘ・?】 So who is random object guy and who is asking about his cape? I get that Chansey is PO'd but then there is a superhero of some kind that is totally unrelated to Drowzee and Tidus.I'm assuming he is a different patient trying to help tidus, but who is he? lol

If you go back and read the previous comics it should be clearer.

It's Roger Wilco of the Space Quest series and in those Adventure games you picked up random objects and used them to solve obstacles and stuff. Wilco is just hamming it up here.
