Honestly I think he might've stopped because of the thread

It'd be a ironic shame if the author of a story but overcoming the troll oppression gave up because he thought he was getting trolled.

I loving love this comic. It brings me back to MY middle school years where I also drew comics of a similar vein. "Chinese Ninja Penguin" and later the spinoff "Super Chinaman. " it was loving awful and loving great, and thank you lazerbot for making me nostalgic for that. I'm super thankful that you're continuing the saga.

We need to take that money we were threatening to use to buy Lazerbot a computer, and use it to get this book printed when the saga is complete. We could do a kickstarter or something. I need to have this comic on my shelf right next to The Dark Knight Returns.

I will never play Skyrim again with a character that isn't Rob the No-Eared Nord.

It wouldn't surprise me if the real Elmer is dead in a ditch and this one is an impostor.

The Elmer Fudd we've known for the past 70 years was the imposter. This one is the true king, risen again.

As I was reading the new page I had literally thought to myself "holy poo poo, he's Dragonborn" before even scrolling down and seeing Emo Troll say it himself. This is amazing.


For a while I've suspected that he initially made the first chapter as a standalone thing, but calmed down and just went "you know what? I liked that" and ran with it. I'm really absolutely amazed by the way this has all turned out and I'm really glad I'm not the only one who thinks Lazerbot has a lot of latent talent as a storyteller.

Real talk, if people start loving with him because of the ED article about the comic I'll be genuinely upset. He doesn't deserve it, man.

No doubt. I re-read the entire comic last night with a friend, and I was in disbelief. After a certain point, it becomes increasingly clear that he's not entirely making poo poo up as he goes along. He has a plan. He might have even outlined the entire story. There's instances of foreshadowing and thematic repetition.

Maybe the story is a little rough as is, but we've already seen him improve in his art and storytelling in the six chapters we've seen. If he keeps it up, he's going t be a FORCE.

EDIT: Crud, it's been front paged on ED? If we don't ruin this comic, the traffic from there will for sure.

I was scared for a second when Troll King showed up, but like Emo Troll said, they're not out of the Fire yet. I don't think all of Team Silver will make it back to Bugs' Hole alive.

I also love the fact Elmer has smoke bullets. I hope he has an Arsenal of shotgun shells with special abilities.

I think fan fiction may be in order.

I've been tempted by this, but I'm way too intimidated by Lazerbot's writing style. I don't even know where I would begin if I tried to copy it, and I don't think I could ever write his characters faithfully.

Lazerbot is one of a kind, after all.

Team Silver isn't a subgroup of the Troll Slaiyers? I've read the comic through twice now, and I think I missed the part where Silver and Rob defected. I'm guessing it was around when Elmer showed up, but I was still under impression that Silver was still the Money Guy.

Another great one, JFlight. I've had your songs have been on repeat for weeks.

Just a question, though. Do you sample the music from somewhere else, or do you actually write it yourself?

If this is Sonic's universe we're talking about here, however, there are the Three Big Deaths that no kind of invincibility can prevent: Bottomless Pits, Drowning, and Squashing.

Doesn't invincibility usually give you infinite air, or at least prevent you from drowning? I can't think of a single time I've ever drowned while sparklin'.

If Mario loses this fight, there had best be some serious repercussions. If everyone caries on and nothing is contributed to the plot by this chapter, it'll have been a major waste of time on all accounts.

So, my friend's birthday is coming up, and his wife (who claims she only reads TGT to know what we're talking about) has given us permission to throw him a TGT- themed party. Any goons wanna' pitch any good ideas for this event?

Bare minimum, we feast upon the world's first TGT birthday cake

EDIT: If you're reading the thread, dude, sorry for ruining the surprise

Man I hate to rag on a thing because you can do whatever you want in life, but are you really going to host a party with the theme from a Sonic the Hedgehog fan comic? That's so crazy man.


Yeah. We're a bunch of crazy motherfuckers that can't function in normal society, and I have no regrets.

Some of these ideas are gold, folks. Muchas gracias. I'll be sure to post some pictures of whatever comes to fruition.

Your friend has a wife? Does he have a baby?

Don't actually murder them. I'm telling you this because your party proves that you take jokes too far.

The joke goes too far with a birthday cake and a few TGT themed party favors before we ultimately end up playing some video games and shooting the poo poo for a few hours?

Not with the ten or so songs, the music videos, animated/voice acted motion comics, or the dozens of fanart?

Yeah. I thought I was able to pin down where this comic is going. I thought for a moment that it had become a little bit predictable.

loving Lazerbot. I'm mad at you right now, but I hope Rob stays dead, and we get an awesome chapter where Elmer Fudd tears the poo poo out of Hindo, avenging Rob. That would be a 40 page fight that I'd look forward to.

My heart hurts. RIP ROB. I will never forget you.

I love how as of this chapter Rob just blanks out regularly to have daydreams in the middle of fights. Massive ADD in this one.

I'm so happy right now. So unbelievably happy.

Kinda wished Robb had died, this feels like a big cop-out after his death scene and eulogy.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who grew tired of TGT a while back. It got pretty boring there, but there were some still the ocassional great moment, but what really ruined TGT for me was following Lazey-B on Facebook. He started to say too drat much, and turned into a creature that couldn't stand anyone misinterpreting his vision (and then sucked the fun out of the discussions). Started to realize Lazerbot wasn't quite the light-hearted author who was willing to laugh at himself. At least, not anymore.

Did we make Lazerbot too big for his britches? Being serious now, the comic was awful, but it had a lot of heart and did bring a lot of laughter and excitement for the few good months that we had it. I'll fondly remember everything up through the Porky flashback. For that, I'll thank Lazerbot and the constant denizens of this thread. It was a loving ride.
