Hello people. Late comics are sometimes worth waiting for, but alas, not today. Maybe, oh maybe someday. *wistful stare into the yonder* I really don't know why, but I couldn't for the life of me think of anything remotely funny for three days. I guess this one's got a dash of humor.

New character today. Zentavious (Rotty: This time it's a real name) is his name. As you can see, there's not much to him. Just a robe that hides mysterious mysteries of mystery.

I bought a can of Photoshop shine and sprayed it on the pipe, the ground, and the sky. Meaning, everything is slightly more crisp than last time you saw the overworld. If I may brag on myself for a minute here. Compare comic number one with today's strip. Or with number four, since it has Gokmen and the pipe and stuff. I'm going to break my usual trend and say that I'm proud of how much the look has improved since I started. It's definitely not perfect, but it has improved.

The last frame didn't turn out like I wanted it to. Zentavious looks pretty good, but the mood isn't as dark as I imagined when I had the idea for this strip, image-wise.

As always, comments, concerns, complaints, compliments, suggestions, questions, ratings, and spontaneously combusting footwear is accepted.

EDIT: Oh yeah, this Sunday I'll be leaving for vacation. What that means for you is that you may or may not get another comic before June, depending on how busy the vacation is, and if I happen to stay at a place with WiFi stuff.

MORE EDIT: I just realized, the hit count is now over 5000. I'm still not going to make one of those cheap "THANKS! 5000 HIT COMBO!" things. Ever.

...Unless I feel like it.

Execelent work. I didn't find it particularly funny but it is well drawn regardless. Great job!

Hooray, new plotline!

Is this new person the Grim Reaper, or just a Koopa with a bad fashion sense? We'll find out!

BTW, I noticed you seem to be using those newspaper-cliping-like things a lot. Eg. "DeaTh" and "cough". It looks really cool :D

KK: Actually, no new plotline. Not for a while, anyway. I'm just a little tired of being confined to a plot, so for a while, it'll just be a-gag-a-page or two-to-three-comic-arc strips.

As for the "clippings," I use those to put emphasis on certain words, and make them more dramatic. Glad you like them. I guess.

Hmm, spontaneously combusting footwear, eh? *Hands TG some shoes* Here ya go! Oh, compliments are accepted too? Okay! I agree, you HAVE improved. And it was already awesome to start! You deserve to brag.
