This thread is incredible. I've been laughing the whole way through.

Lazerbot, If you're reading this, I really want to see the rest of it. This is brilliant stuff and I hope your mouse gets fixed soon.

Also, those videos the goons have been making are insane. One thing Everdraed's has that made me laugh really loudly when I saw it was the fact that Tails has infinite tails. They just keep going forever.

Man, the page just before this last one was my favourite. Right here buddy killed me.

Also, Luigi and Mario's plan seems to be working so far. Maybe Shadow should have listened to him.. :allears:

Wait, so did Luigi use the star and it had no effect, or did he get cuuuuuunt-ed before he could use it?

Also, love the foreshadowing for the Man With No loving Ears to save the day.

My favourite part is how he tells this epic of adventure and mystery. Then he goes "but they were a myth". Final panel is just him standing there looking sad.

After loving years, he is not in an incontrolable rage or crying his heart out, he's just standing there looking sad.
To me that's the funniest thing.

EDIT: hell he doesn't even look sad, just sort of bummed.

Especially when you compare it to how gleefully happy he looks during his actual search.

Holy poo poo look at Tails' face. What could he possibly be looking at to justify that look of absolute horror?

The short comic by the same author about the guy cheating on his wife is fantastic as well: http://www.webcomicsnation.com/thorsby/wives/series.php

It kinda reads like the boat sequence from Hitmen but with a lot more attention to detail.

Those pages were great. I absolutely loved how No Ears Man shouted WHAT!!!!? right at the start of a new page, because I get to the bottom of the second timg with Silver asking the question, then click on the third one and get "WHAT!!!!?" Absolutely incredibly comedic timing there, I lost it.

Lazerbot, since I know you're probably reading this thread, you're awesome and don't listen to creepy people who want you to draw rape scenes or anything that would upset you. Keep up what you're doing, this comic is a crazy wonderful thing. :unsmith:

It doesn't really matter. Some people do this, some people don't. The person may not see it if you just edit your post, but if you don't want to clutter up the thread with too many posts at once then go for it.

Enjoy!
Welp, that's about it from Aramek's voice acting (he had only uploaded the first chapter). Unfortunately, he doesn't have PMs and it looks like he's barely posted on SA in the past year, so I'm not sure how to contact him for the rest of the series... I could always fill in with my own voice acting (like in the Troll-Off) but I don't have as nice a recording setup as Aramek did.

I'm so glad I could watch this in glorious 1080p high definition.

My big question is, who said "we can hear what your saying"? It can't have been Rob, because he CAN'T hear what Silver's saying. Was it Blaze, or Elmer Fudd?

Noo, not Rob! :ohdear: If he goes out, I hope it's amazingly epic, especially since he's the only character we've met so far that could theoretically withstand the WORD OF DEATH.

Still though, that stoic look he's got in the 7th panel is sheer gold.

Silver raises a valid point. There are no female trolls, I wonder if there is a legitimate reason for that in this.

They reproduce asexually through division, like amoebas.

Also, remember way back at the beginning, when Sonic killed that one troll and his buddy was like "No, why did you kill him? I love him!" All the trolls are secretly just self-hating gay people.

Since when is a hunter who eats duck and wabbit a cannibal?

Also, you have to remember that up until this point, trying to kill Bugs was Fudd's entire existence. Dude's having a crisis right now.

I think the argument is that since Bugs and Daffy were clearly conscious beings capable of abstract thought, communication, and love, that another similar being eating them would be like cannibalism even though they may not be the exact same species. I'm not sure if it holds up, but I'm pretty sure that's the rationale behind it.

If someone doesn't get an avatar of Luigi with a giant "do it" underneath I'll be disappointed.

Or really it could be any time a character asks a question like that. You put the question in the avatar, and "do it" in enormous letters underneath.

Holy poo poo, that last page had me dying. Everything about it is incredible but "hey give me a sec im gonna do a line real quick" was my favourite, closely followed by "yeah i would like to talk but cop's is about to come on". The best page yet.

The art is my favorite part to be honest.

You may be disappointed by "The Accidental Space Spy" then. The art is much the same, but he changed the way he draws eyes and mouths so everyone isn't walking around with giant bug eyes and an enormous toothy grin all the time. I think it's actually a really good change though, because it lets him actually show more emotions--for example, a surprised person can now have bug eyes and it stands out because they usually don't, unlike Hitmen.

Honestly I'm getting bored of this fight because he's not making it balanced at all. It's just Troll King completely stomping over Mario again and again.

Mario only seems to be putting up a fight in the sense that he hasn't actually died yet, but he hasn't actually even scratched Troll King. That makes it pretty boring cause there's no suspense about who is going to win.

Same, I've been thinking this for a few pages. It's really not interesting because the Troll King is apparently invincible. Even the foreshadowing that he can be hurt by Luigi's hammer didn't actually mean anything because now he has his robot arm that's apparently even better or something? I dunno.

I also feel like we don't need an entire chapter setting up the Troll King as very hard to defeat, we've already seen him kill Luigi and Sonic so that's established. Now it's just watching Mario bounce off him over and over again using whatever powers he can think up, and that's honestly not very interesting.

Um, the troll is pretty clearly 'falling' for it in that panel, I'll have you know. He's practically horizontal.

This team really is the most shockingly effective group of characters in the entire comic. Rob is a dragonborn, Silver has his magic powers, and Elmer is not only armed and dangerous, but is also a necromancer walking around with two corpses that he's clearly been saving to use as weapons. I bet Blaze has some great power up her sleeve as well.

Compare to Mario, who is powerful but only has Yoshi as an ally, Shadow who has the remnants of the Troll Slaiyers backing him up but they're clearly all dumb as poo poo, and Tails who is currently being mentored by Woodstock of all people.

Well that was weird and came out of nowhere. Why can white-hair-troll suddenly travel through electric lines? And not only that, but can also turn other people into electricity and bring them with him? That was really strange.

Also, what the hell are the trolls? Way back at the beginning of this story it made sense, they were basically internet trolls led by an actual real-life fairy tale troll, which was funny. But now they have random emo guys with superpowers and so on and so on.

Rob = Mary Sue wish fullfillment? An Author Avatar?

Can it be a coincidence that those three letters are in Dragonborn as well?

And if you take the remaining letters that were removed, LAZET, and rearrange them a bit...

This is insane. How many more groups can L-bot create? This is like one of those really long fantasy stories where halfway through the fifth 1200-page book all the characters from the beginning are all split up and in different places.

We've got Shadow and Knuckles and the Troll Slaiyers, whose numbers are pretty thin by now.
We've got Mario and Yoshi and probably some toads or something.
We've got Tails and the Defenders.
We've got Silver, Blaze, Rob, and the Neutrals.
And of course, who could forget the Trolls themselves.

And there's probably someone I forgot.

I think they were chosen based on who drank the blood... just a guess.

I love how the dark lord obviously wasn't paying attention to the attendees he was handing out power to. He had several drunk, high "bros" (seriously, that's what they are) just walk on in, who hadn't heard of him at all, and just gave them the powers cos they wanted to get wasted.

This is amazing. Amazing amazing amazing. I love the amount of avatars this comic is creating. They're so far apart, random, and unrelated that I'm always worried people won't realize the lovely MS Paint-esque drawings are all related.

Also, who's to say Porky dies? Did I misread something? I'm assuming he's gonna be the new leader of the cult.

Well he didn't appear in the neutrals' hideout (so far), and he seems to be the odd one out in the group.
