Personally, I’m more of a Rocky fan.
I made the same face…
Same here. D:
I can imagine it. Why? There are other bad-(not saying that word) characters out there, and I have NEVER seen the Rambo movies. All I know is that he is supposedly freakin’ awesome. That’s, like, all I need to know to understand what people are talking about.
Someone give this man 20ccs of First Blood, Stat.
Just think of the ripple effects…
Stallone makes even MORE Rocky films but never quite achieves the same rep.
No Expendables, no Son of Rambow, no Three Little Pigs by Green Jellÿ. Probably no Team America World Police or Tropic Thunder.
The amount of work that goes into making a movie, the immeasurable number of lives touched in small ways by it not being made, not being printed, distributed, shown in the theatre… people not going to see it, not being influenced by it, using that time for something else.
Who knows what world we’d have lived in without it.
I didn’t see Rambo, but you said no Team America and I made the face. Such a world cannot be allowed to exist. Thank you, Commander. You are awesome and I love you.
Plus, you know, the political ramifications. But hey; those probably would not have been big.
I have no idea what Jarbosh is.
I don’t either. Sounds like innuendo.
You have much to teach us.
Would somebody please think of the children!
I always knew ‘Badass’ fashion sense was not of this time!
That’s an “Epic Win” face.
Yo! cash into the ”Epic Jar”
The last panel made me laugh out loud. I wanna use it as an avatar now. rofl
Time Air Land Sea… lol
Gotta love how he doesn’t need a shirt under his leather jacket.
This guy is an american sephiroth.
i’m sorry, but cool as he is, sephiroth doesn’t qualify as…manly.
Well, of course not.
Sephiroth isn’t an American.
If we didn’t get to see that vast field of chest hair, I would shed a single, bitter tear. :(
He’s got a natural layer of fluff covering his body to protect him from chaffing.
Keep up the good work, brah
Also, I’d be more concerned if we lacked Tropic Thunder from the US winning ‘Nam.
I totally agree that that movie was worth losing ‘nam.
Gender is not conducive to ones Brah-ness.
Plus, “brah” is surfer lingo for a female bro. Depends on which dialects we’re going on here.
Gotta choose one and stick to it.
His accent is too thick… At least, the way it is transcribed into text.
No Rambo…? What name could we then possibly use to describe owning the masses of interweb nerds?!
I pray we never find out.
Love your works, miss – absolutely fantastic :D
I think I can imagine that world just fine. never watched Rambo, never intend to. <_<
We wouldn’t have Lieutenant Dan from Forrest Gump…
You just lost all rights to ever being manly.
I’ve never really been manly. i’m more Jared than Commander. >_>
Your expressions definitely help the comic be all the more fun to read. Especially when you take this cute female character and just give her this hilarious “FFFFFFF” face.
Well, that and the character anatomy, and the backgrounds, and the rather dynamic character poses…
Hell, this entire comic just rocks in every way. More deserving of praise and popularity than some of the bigger webcomics nowadays, certainly.
Well, this comic is still fairly new. It’s only been going for a couple months, right? I’m sure it’ll get the praise and admiration it deserves once the masses actually find out about it.
Which reminds me, I need to start pimping this comic to my other online friends through my LJ and Facebook and stuff. >_>
Noooo not the rambos! anything but that!
You know, I tried. I couldn’t. it would be like…Tearing out one of my lungs or something, I can’t imagine a world without Rambo. It’s the weirdest thing, I didn’t even like most of those movies, though the first one was good.
oh so THAT’S how the commander was able to fight in nam with frank castle
Damn I love that science-magic.
Could be worse, as opposed to Dr. Manhattan, the Commander actually wears pants. Though I imagine if he didn’t, the Viet Cong would have wanted to surrender directly to him too.
America’s arrogant enough WITH its complex about Vietnam, I’d hate to see how we’d be if we won all the time. Probably something like Rambo; Attorney at Law VII. Oddly, the Prosecuting Attorney is Mr. T.
I would totally and completely watch that film.
The best Phoenix Wright sequel ever.
Oh yes! And when they object, they punch each other in the face!
Holy balls that is 7 1/2 kinds of awesome.
The governments of the future will finally get their priorities straight? Now this comic has gotten unrealistic.
Considering the last comic had Pyramid-Head sitting in the lounge of a job placement agency, where an ex-Pokemon trainer works as an intern, I think realism has been pretty under the rug this entire time.
And I think he was joking. :P
I love her expression after finding out that the Commander sabotaged himself in the war.
And I can see her mind break at the indecision between Rambo movies and winning Vietnam.
I’m pretty sure Vietnam was necessary for the Rocky films, as well.
I didn’t really “get” the joke, but I thought it was funny anyway… :p
Does she like Rambo? And that’s why she makes that face? (I’m stupid)
Everyone in the world likes Rambo, an existence without it is a universally accepted terrible thing. It’s worth sending top-tier Commandos back in time to sabotage themselves to preserve them.
That, or she made a delayed reaction about the coffee.
Or she paused long enough for Pyramid Head to catch up to her.
Your comic is awesome! I’ve sent you an email mentioning how great it is.
But sabotaging yourself… Wasn’t he amazed, upset and frustrated when everything he’s done were mysteriously undone and ruined and some bastard tripped up him on every turn? That must have been a hell. And then he had to go back… to cause all this frustration to himself.
Couldn’t they send another Man to sabotage him? Or was he only one able to do it?
I’m afraid that a comic of the commander punching Hitler in the face in black and white might raise a few bad eyebrows. However awesome it may sound.
Come on, everybody loves beating up on Nazis, It’s what made the people love Captain America… And Namor… And the human Torch, the old one who’s a robot, not the douchey Fantastic four one. Probably others… It’s a proud American tradition to have fictional comic characters punch Hitler.
And Charizard. Don’t forget about Charizard.
I just googled “Charizard punching Hilter” and was very disappointed at lack of results.
Nah. Lots of people wanted to punch Hitler. Even other ‘in the know’ Nazis wanted to punch Hitler! Except Goebbels. He was a pantywaist buttkissing mischling toady.
I should write a comic someday that involves a cybernetic Otto Skorzeny going back in time 300 years specifically to punch Hitler. In his bunker. With an air-hammer. Then ‘relieve’ him of his unfired pistol.
Yeah, that sounds reasonably realistic.
I am dissapointed by the lack of Master Chief in these comics, and you got me all excited when you said “Space Marine” in the first comic
Gotta figure out something worthy to do with him.
Easy. He’ll be the cocky, comic relief macho character.
Now you just gotta figure out a punchline.
Or he could be the loser. You know. Can never get a word in on a conversation and people will even talk on his behalf sometimes. As a result, no one has ever heard the sound of his voice.
But then again, that’s not manly, is it?
Play through Halo 3, or watch the original demo version of Halo 1. He talked plenty in each.
Really? Darn it. I was hoping for a joke about one of those “strong silent types”. I never had the opportunity to play Halo, so I always assumed that Master Chief was actually a silent android they sent in to do everything because he was highly expendable… And they had never expected him to do better than entire armies of humans, but since he was on a roll, he might as well take over the whole operation…
wow! just wow! thats the EXACT opposite of what the games are like XD its amazing how things can seem so different to what they really are ;P
man i love this comic! just wish there were more updates, ugh! im suffering from manly withdrawal syndromes!!!
Sounds like teh teenage Maggie in that one Episode of the Simpsons, where Lisa sees her future at the carnival.
Do something with about dealing with his habit of hiding in a box he pulls out of pocket space, cause he probably can’t get a normal job till he stops doing that.
Personally, I was thinking Warhammer 40K. Can’t get much more ridiculously badass than that.
Great punchline, i was wondering where you were going with it. *fistbump*
I love how casual the Commander is about all this crazy shit. That’s the real reason he’s the boss-man: nothing short of being attacked by a berserk Qunari gets him riled up.
What are you doing here? You must get back to abridging nao!!!!11!1 Naw just kidding.
He wasn’t mad because he was assaulted by a qunari. He was mad that all those delectable cookies went to waste. A man can’t be manly without cookies.
I shared the link to the Pyramid Head strip. You now have more new regular readers :D
Whahahahah! I love the faces that girl pulls. I would never thought her capable of them!
I want to have sex with your comics. I love you.
If Rambo movies didn’t exist, then my final project in one of my classes wouldn’t have seen the day oO
Great job, keep up the good work :D
Who cares about Rambo movies?
The humourlessness exhibited in this post deeply saddens me.
I’ll go get you your special happy pills.
Despite never seeing them (a fact I should correct someday…), I do, cause they spawned a cartoon I got up early on Saturday mornings to watch when I was younger, until they stopped showing them… Though I don’t remember much of those, cause I was like eight…
Last few panels=epic lolz :D
Dude, you HAVE to make this comic more than once a week, I discovered this just a week ago, when some one posted some of these on /b/
It’s been a long time since i’ve seen something this funny, most old web comics ran out of jokes, or just got disinteresting, and MGDMT is just amazing!
Keep up the good work!
Ahahahaha, I work 11 hour days at the studio, so it’s hard to find time for more than one strip a week… Glad you like it, though!
When I get my cloning device working, I can make more Coelasquids to art for you.
Is it me or… has his nose/face gotten more predominant since we’ve first seen him? Cole, your laziness is showing…
Your inability to pronounce the word “Coelasquid” is showing.
Thanks for the head’s up, though, I had no idea I was apparently so lazy. I guess that means I can stop pushing myself to get a page of this stuff done a week on top of 11 hour work days and other comic commissions. Maybe I’ll finally get to sleep more than three hours in a night!
Woh,Coolsquids, gotta calm down.
It is a dark day when you can’t respond to internet sarcasm in kind.
To be fair, it can be really difficult to discern when someone is being sarcastic. o_O I have that problem.
What no more Rambo marathons? The world will die D:
She probably likes being around all that testosterone :-P
….Like a Boss?
Oh please oh please put Gordan Freeman somewhere in here. Maybe a repair-guy for the company? Somebody’s got to repair all the stuff that gets broken by completely ripped huge guys. >>
The manly nerd? Or the one who everyone thinks is a manly nerd just because of the hazmat suit?
To be fair : Gordan Freeman may be a nerd, but he also is the (first of like, maybe five) sole survivor(s) of the Black Mesa incident, and has a pretty good track record vs. alien-zombie things. Just because he can’t shelter small villages in his stubble and/or shadow, doesn’t mean he can’t qualify. Besides, it’s not like he spends most of his time doing science, anyway.
Freeman kicks down the door, crowbars an alien, shoots another one, then Gravity Guns two robots together.
Soldiers under fire praise him for his skill from a distance, and tell him only he has the training to fix the beacon and save the world.
The beacon is unplugged.
Cue Freeman MAXIMUM FROWN
He’s not simply a nerd, he’s got a PhD in high energy physics or something! He’s one of them scientists who opened a wormhole that let in all those strange aliens take over the world.
and he’s the only man in the world who carries a friggin’ flashlight.
(i’m halfway through episode 1. I know this to be true.)
HAY hay. A world without Rambo is a world I would shrivel and die in. Quickly.
…also, I think thar may need to be moar Deadpool. Just sayin’.
Hell yeah Deadpool.
When you use parody characters in a parody comic, it doesn’t feel much like you’re making a parody anymore…
Waaaaait……if Rambo is still a fictional character in -this- universe, we’ll never get to see Rambo show up looking for a job.
And that’s terrible.
Then in that case, you just need to make Stalone actually running black-ops missions between movies.
That, or the Rambo movies are all doumentaries.
No, no, no, it’s all good.
In this universe the Rambo films are probably someting akin to war documentaries.
OH GOD! D:>
Despite the fact that I have never seen any Rambo movies, I still can’t imagine a world without those movies. I’m trying, but I can’t…
Love your comic. One techie thing though – do you think you could make the currently published comic the homepage, and then all the others in the archives labelled with dates? It’s just more convenient for bookmarking and seeing right away if things are updated or not.
I’m not sure what you’re seeing on the homepage if it’s not the most current comic, because I’m pretty sure that’s what everybody else sees when they go there… At least, it’s what I see on the homepage on all of the different computers and browsers I’ve gone to the page with.
As for the archives, that’s probably Vorked’s area. You can give him the head’s up at firstname.lastname@example.org
Did you save it as a bookmark? It could just be that when you log on you are going to the comic you bookmarked it from.
Perhaps I was just an idiot. For some reason I remember clicking on the main page and not getting the most current comic…
Anyway, it’s all good now. Carry on, gentlemen!
I wonder if these guys are looking forward to “the Expendables”
Everyone forever is looking forward to the Expendables.
Long time reader, but i feel it is time to reply.
Coelasquid…i am TOTALLY in love with your webcomic. i was a TINY bit worried when Pyramid Head turned up… but otherwise awesome.
Wish i could draw like you <3
that reminds me of zoey from L4D…
anyways, this is now my favorite webcomic. keep it up!
Hey, when do we get moar? 8D
My face imploded trying to think of a world without Rambo.
This comic is an example of how the world needs more manliness.
I know there’s no fanart page yet, but this page created an inspiration that could not be stopped. @_@
EAT FIST, FASCISM!
fantastic! I shall start one on the “extras” page :D
Mannnnnnnn you’re awesome :DDDD
If Rambo didn’t exist we might not have this:
Physicists are naming these things on purpose. RAMBOs, okay. MACHOs? Riiight. WIMPs? Oh, COME ON.
So how did Rambo change the world? It could be argued the movie showed how war veterans can be fucked up, which made many war veterans more able to open up, which helped a cultural shift where it became more acceptable for a man to cry and have conflicting feelings and stuff, which inevitably led more people to question if challenging male activities such as fighting and war are really healthy, which reduced the general willingness to participate in war, which made the reality of an end to all wars a little bit closer.
But then Rambo 2, 3 and 4 pushed it back ten years each.
Or maybe you’re just saying the Rambo movies are good. Hey, to each their own, but to me the Vietnam war was worth it just to get Apocalypse Now.
Without the Rambo films to buoy up his career, Stallone becomes known as “that Planet Hollywood guy who did those boxing movies” and slips into obscurity. More importantly, he never goes into politics — and when aliens attack the United States in 2017, the President is not a sensitive-yet-masculine underdog whose quiet confidence and tenacity inspire the nation to fight back.
I dunno, maybe it’s cause I’ve never taken the time to see Rambo, but I dont get the punchline
I’ve never seen the Rambo movies… or the Rocky ones…
I was born in a little cabin in Olympia, about a mile from the cave and forest where they filmed the first Rambo movie, and in the same month. I am manly by association!
Someone probably said this already, but shouldn’t it be TALS, not TIALS?
SEAL stands for Sea, Air, Land, so TIALS is Time, Air, Land, Sea.
(In a quiet-ish voice, as if from far away) I don’t get it!
Yeah, I’m pretty sure I’d be more than okay with that.
Sorry to come back and comment on this one so late, but I’m watching S6E8 of Dr. Who entitled Let’s Kill Hitler, and Rory just punched Hitler in the face, and all I could think about was this comic. haha
Never seen Rambo, but my favorite scene in Spaceballs involves a Rambo joke so point well taken.
