Gang tags are obnoxious and stupid, and discussion of them always derails threads for pages and pages, so please, for the sake of Art, let's keep focus on these fine comical strips.

Lotta erotic talk about someone who's probably 13 up in this thread

Haha, yeah. Stare emoticon.

There is literally no way a 13 year old could have played an obscure niche title like Super Mario World. It's been locked in the Disney Vault since 1992.

Lazerbot, the people making suggestions in this thread are secret double-crossers who act like they're not trolls but really they are trolls in disguise who want to dilute your talent. Put on your robot chest plate, cut off your ears, and don't listen to anyone making suggestions in this thread. Besides me.

The thing with Hitmen for Destiny is that a web comic probably wasn't the best medium for the story, but it really is one hell of a story. The author has a talent for writing, but not art.

I really hate to continue the Hitmen derail, but this isn't necessarily the case. At least, he may not be very good at narrative prose. He is, however, very good at visual timing, which is a different sort of skill. The art in that comic is unfortunate but I can't imagine the story being told quite as well in another medium.

Everyone a few pages back who was saying they were sure this comic was nearing the end have no concept of proper story pacing. Lazerbot does. I'm glad my faith in Lazerbot will be vindicated.

Is anyone else upset the Troll Slaiyers we came to know and love are now almost totally dissolved?

Nah, their incompetence is the funniest part of this whole thing. I can only hope the Defenders or whateverthefuck are equally dysfunctional.

Game of Thrones starting up again reminded me that the Troll Prince is basically Joffrey. The Troll King seems like a guy with actual reasons for his actions, as evil as they might appear, but the Troll Prince is just an entitled poo poo.

Can we give Hitmen for Destiny its own thread already, it's really got nothing to do with Tails gets Trolled.

As a corollary, can we stop using "outsider" as an adjective to describe either one?

NO LISTEN TO ME posted:

When playing cops and robbers or whatever with my friends when I was a kid and I shot them with bullets they suddenly proclaimed they had bullet-proof vests. Of course, I retaliated by saying I had bullet-proof vest piercing bullets, and the cycle went on in an endless spiral of half-assed rebuttals and imaginary one-upmanship.

This feels like that.

That's totally what he's doing and it's hilarious.
Five updates of Mario just getting punched in the face and saying "hm oh poo poo he's strong?" was boring. Blatant making-poo poo-up attacks with overlong explanations of them while they're happening is funny.

Buzkashi posted:

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.

I enjoy the segue from Batman's fist / talking about punching to the Troll King punching / talking about punching Elmer Fudd. Bravo, lazerbot.

Only in direct address. When discussing us to a third party, we are "those people."

For example:
"What is that rear end in a top hat laughing at?"
"Some comic where Elmer Fudd is a necromancer I think."
"Oh, he's one of those people."

or:

"Hey, is that Tails Gets Trolled? Are you one of those people?"
"I am one of those people."
"I am one of you people too!"

I think you mean "them people."
