Honestly, I just went over to the Bugs and Elmer Wikipedia pages and was a little thrown off at the actual WB art instead of Lazerbot's version.

Oh my god I gotta say I've always been reading these comics with a sort of bemusement but that last loving panel...just dear loving lord.
So the goon sayeth "calling it, he's a necromancer", and then he's ACTUALLY A loving NECROMANCER it's incredible. :psyduck:

That was the first page I've read where I saw the first panels and actually was incensed to finish it. I have never been that excited to finish a page as I was right there.

Bravo, Lazerbot. Bravo. You are my hero.

Man, Silver needs to just take a survey of his team to figure out their powers. I'm sure it would have been a lot more helpful if he'd known Rob was dragonborn or Fudd was a necromancer back at the Bieber Bever concert.

To be fair, it was Shadow's team back then. Silver only became in charge when the team broke apart after the Mario and Luigi fight.

What I want to know is the terms of Bugs and Daffy's revival. Are they just Elmer's puppets? Zombies? Are they fully cognizant and ready to Slaiy Trolls? Was this all part of their plan??

And how did Bugs's head get partially reconstructed so it only looks like he took one bullet instead of several rounds?

I didn't see anyone complain about any of the fights except Mario vs. King Troll. I think maybe we can classify that one as an anomaly? :confused:

Also of note: that people spent a lot of time worrying thst the comments of this thread might be influencing the story. But the fact that LB noticed (and responded to!) all the complaints made about that long-rear end fight, without appearing to expedite it, shows he's not afraid to stick to his narrative inclinations.

This is the golden standard by which all graphic novels should be judged in the future.

Not just graphic novels, either. I hope that by the time my one-year-old is in high school or college, Lazerbot is part of literature canon. Just slot TGT in there between The Grapes of Wrath and The Crucible or whatever.

The link between Ed Gein and Elmer Fudd is pretty obvious really.

quote:

And when I think of Ed Gein, the Wisconsin cannibal killer who inspired such classic films as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre , Psycho and The Silence of the Lambs , I think: "perverted Elmer Fudd."

quote:

Ed Gein kinda reminds me of a super satanic Elmer Fudd.

It's like the role of Elmer Fudd is being played by Ed Gein.

The last one even comes from a page with a slightly related picture.

Nahhhhh - I assume Sonic would be the Super Ego, and he was always waaaaaaay too supportive of everyone else, and eventually went out and acted on his own.

Also, Fudd is both Duke Nukem AND a necromancer? Talk about mixing your archetypes.

I like how Daffy is just as checked-out and comatose as ever, while Bugs is immediately considering a place they can neverbe found with a sly grin. Bugs' face says so much here: he's glancing over at Daffy as if to say, "hey man, we're alive. Crazy, huh?" while Daffy is obviously responding "..."

nerdbot posted:

Could Bugs and Daffy be the "neutral's" of the title? If Fudd is controlling them, maybe they break free from his control and form their own faction.

Daffy just looks so resigned to his current situation. It's a look of "yep, this has happened before." That's probably why he looked so at peace when he got shot before; it was blissful release from the hosed-up relationship he and Bugs have with Fudd.

Actually, not to ruin anyone's ideas that Fudd is a completely original character or a D&D-style "necromancer" or anything, but I think Lazerbot's basing Fudd off of Sasori from Naruto:
http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Sasori
http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Puppet_Technique
http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Human_Puppet

He basically does the same puppeteering of corpses with energy strings coming off each finger.

According to the images in the link the guy in naruto didn't have satanic marks on his hands, so it seems more like the D&D necromancy to me

I think it depends on whether Fudd is actually controlling them like puppets with those energy beams. If he is, it's obviously a Naruto-inspired thing. We know he likes anime and that he watches Naruto, and the power would basically look and act the same.

If not, and it's just your garden variety necromancy, then it's probably D&D-inspired (though even then, there could be some Naruto thing happening). I will note that there aren't any energy strings in Bugs and Daffy's two large panels at the bottom. The next page will probably solve this.

Incredible brain-melting moments like that aside, I think the best part of TGT is the little tidbits that are treated as throwaways but give us great insight into the characters. The hardest I've laughed at this whole thing is Bugs asking Rob to use a coaster in the hideout, because why the gently caress would the same person who wrote that Mario/Troll King fight sequence consider that important enough for a whole frame on its own?

Let me dispel the mystery: because it's funny.
This comic is trying to be funny.
Even the Mario fight was trying to be funny, through how absurd and over-the-top a lot of it was, backed by referential humor in Mario's powers. It was probably funnier in lazerbot's head than in execution, but the very idea of "Super Mario has a DBZ-style fight for 10 pages" is absurd enough that, yes, that was the joke.
