dust hasn’t settled from the move yet, got the last of our stuff out of the old place.
Probably gonna tweak the dialogue on this one when I colour it, crammed it out in ten minutes and it flows pretty awkward.
Nice to get back to the simple done in one stuff, not that I didn’t enjoy the last arc, but still, I like this.
Actually, both Arc & Singles (may i call it ‘Singles’?) are awesome. But of course i’m waiting for the colored version for the extra Awesomeness :P
Aaand it’s colored! XD *dance with joy*
I don’t know who that is, but the outfit forces me to read his lines in Strong Bad’s voice.
Super Macho Man
That’s Super Macho Man.
*watches part of that video* And now I’ll never sleep…
Thank you for posting that
that was disturbing
That guy’s got some top guns.
At least Jared was right about the being from the future part?
Not like Commander ever denied that ;P
Some people like to look pretty while they fight
Let the dust settle, take nap, just ignore the piles of boxes and wonder what is going to go where later. Pick a corner and a blankie and we’ll all be here when you have the time to not uber rush yourself, which is not good for ones health…or so I hear.
PS: I love the ideas that come outta Jared’s brain, cause half of my brain is like ‘That is the dumbest idea ever’ Annnnnd the other half is like ‘That would have been SOOO awesome!’
I second myself….I guess.
Jared is our inner child: unfiltered, unashamed, and yet unsullied by the brutality of the world. Commander B said it best. The inside of his head is probably the most bizarre and interesting places anyone could live.
I can’t express how delighted I am by this Punchout joke. I find it odd Jared wouldn’t notice things like jaw line.
Speaking of Macho, I think El Macho from Dispicable Me 2 would fit gloriously onto a comic page.
I’m not sure there is any direction you could go with El Macho. He is already from a comedy, and his machoness is deconstructed in the movie he is from. Any joke you could write involving him would likely be redundant.
He IS teaching you how to be awesome, regardless.
…What does “ambiguously brown” mean, by the way?
You ever seen The Rock? That.
“a skin tone that’s definitely not Northern European, but it’s not entirely clear what ethnicity they are supposed to be.
Or Taz, to bring up another ‘ambiguously brown’ professional wrestler.
A skin color where you can’t really tell what nationality they are.
Real life examples include Dwayne Johnson (“The Rock”, Half Black, Half Samoan), Rashida Jones (Ann Perkins from Parks and Recreation, Black and Ashkenazi Jewish), and Wilmer Valderrama (Fez from That 70s Show, Colombian and Venezuelan).
Because their ancestry comes from different places, people who fall under “Ambiguously Brown” have a mix of all these different ethnic traits, and don’t fall distinctively into people’s stereotypical views of certain nationalities. In Fez’s case, it helped that Wilmer used a completely made up accent.
In Rock’s case, it just means that that skin tone was popular when they decided to grow him from steak and American soil.
Aaaah, Jared. You will someday be something else! If so you choose.
i actually would like to see future jared!
But let’s be honest: who wouldn’t meet Rock Lobster and hope that he is some space future version of themselves pulling a Kyle Reese?
At first read I saw “Jared has little man parts.” …
Confirmation bias much? :P
You know, June raises a very valid concern: those pants sure are little. :|
She’s a very insightful girl. Also, I think she’s named that character. He is… Little Pants Man!
Two hours seems otherworldily quick from the perspective of a muggle like me. You can tell you have skill.
Did the fandom not come up with this EXACT theory way back when?
Eh, the fandom would come up with that under any set circumstances.
Like most fandoms, we’ll come up with most theories regardless of any set circumstances, especially one as cliché as that.
I think that’s the joke?
…Sammie’s face isn’t covered. *First Sighting*
Maybe he usually keeps his face covered because he’s too adorable otherwise.
I was wondering if I was the only one who noticed, or if it wasn’t the first time after all and I’d just forgotten.
Commander Rocky is wearing casual clothes? What happened to his jacket? o_O
He wears casual stuff outside the office pretty often.
Goggles are the only thing he will not go without.
He must be a leader of the digidestined then.
good grief can you imagine what his Digimon would have to be if he was
That would be beautiful.
Though there’d be a weird turf war between Jared and Commander going on in that case.
Leomon. Hands down.
no don’t change it! it’s perfect how it is *u*
You know, this strip reminds me of Archer and Shirou from the visual novel Fate/Stay Night where the ambiguously brown and white haired pretty boy Archer turns out to be the future Badass version of Shirou.
Coelasquid, I just have to ask, will there be a big reveal (for CB, at least) that much/most of the genetic bank used to clone him came from Canada Guy?
RELEASE THE BOGUS
“Jared that man has little pants”: line of the year.
Jared has become quite the babysitter.
To be fair to Jared, the lad IS from pokemon-land. Spontaneous appearance change is something he’s quite used to; he probably just thought he’d evolve at some point when he gained enough experience or touched a Badass Stone.
I love to see the black & white and then color versions of your work,
Would you consider leaving your B&W’s up with your colors in the future? It is always enlightening to see an artist’s creative process.
I do permanently post them on my patreon stream for $5 backers, I’d hesitate to leave them up elsewhere because that’s kind of the incentive for that tier :P
I see! Cleaver.
Thank you for the info.
hey Coelasquid, I saw and read about your patron stream thing, and I’m considering becoming a monthly backer of $5 (considering meaning highly probably, since I’m a great fan of MGDMT and of what I’ve seen so far of Platinum Black too)
but I wanted to ask you something, two things actually. Will I be able to see the previous weeks worth of black & white sketches too?
and: would you mind horribly if I printed some of those/these out and practiced colouring on them? I am an adult fan of crayola :P
Are the kids getting bigger? They look bigger.
They’re getting older. They’re 5-6 and 2-3 years old. Give or take.
Just started reading your comics a couple days ago. Just wanted to say keep up the good work and I’ll be here every week, you’ve gained a new fan.
Is that Jared’s low self esteem showing up in that idea that probably only his future self would care enough about him to help him out?
To be fair…it’s not an unreasonable thought…he comes from a place where most families only have a single parent, kids are typically kicked out of the house at 10 years old, corporations hunt down ancient god-beasts to remake the universe in their own image, the police are one-man mercenaries that block off public traffic unless bribed, and random strangers will attack you…steal your money…and give you their phone numbers.
That might actually work as a story arc for him. He constantly puts on these airs of immaturity and zaniness. What if he’s scared of growing up because all the adults he knows in his homeland are utter @#$%?
Then again, that might be TOO serious a story arc. Don’t wanna court Cerebus Syndrome too much.
For some reason, Super Macho Man was one of my favorite characters to just cream.
It may be either that “I’m better than you and I’m going to knock your teeth in with my pec to prove it” attitude he extrudes through every part of his body not covered by swimming trunks, or he’s just got a really punchable face.
Well, compared to Bald Bull and Soda Popinski, he’s a bit of a pushover.
Love it. Gonna appropriate that (I’m Mexican, but look white. :D)
The last panel made me giggle.
Little pants are like the sun, June; You don’t stare directly at them. You get a sense of it then you look away.
