Wow it sure was impossible to find time to draw comics this week. But I guess I managed to make it happen
Tasty, tasty bloodberries.
Unwashed wild fruits… this won’t end well for the lad.
Probably no worse than when he spent his entire paycheck on gummy worms. Potentially better, depending on what he ate. Also, he WAS a pokemon trainer, so there are some survival skills in there somewhere involving berries, I’d assume.
He learned that if you mash them together, you get colourful blocks that make you more beautiful/cool/cute/tough/smart depending on the flavour.
Eh, good point. And the only healing berries are stated to be indigestible by humans anyways, so…
I’ll get started on the funeral arrangements…
Remember he wanted “Any way you want it” played
Hell, there were a few berries shown to be bad for Pokémon
That one really spicy one I forgot the name of, for instance…
Spelon Berry – “After eating one, even non-Fire types will try to breathe fire”
Or, based on the anime, Tamato berries.
Cog, those damned things……..
Lets not forget he was kicked out of the league
Bah. I was a Boy Scout and we ate berries off the bush all the time, we knew which ones were tasty, but not which ones were poisonous. We learned that last bit the hard way, like real badasses.
They’re always the most tasty-looking, but also covered in piss from every animal bigger than a mouse.
Er… That last bit… Meant to say “don’t eat the berries off the bottom of the bush, tho. They’re always the most…” You get the idea
He apparently learned NOTHING from the gummy bears.
Ah, gummy WORMS. I remembered it wrong. Thanks, malkix.
When I saw this on your tumblr you actually had me worried for a second XD
Is Mr Fish eating or throwing up? I hope is alright…
Looks like he’s eating. Tearing off a nice chunk of cyclops meat.
If I had to wager a guess, I’d say he’s chowing down on its liver…
Mr. Fish seems to be eating the monster. Though, one should expect it since he IS a giant seamonster and probably gets tired of massive amounts of pokemon fish food. And you can’t eat cute pokemon all the time.
I thought his diet consisted of Jiffy Pop and the occasional cupcake.
You’re right, I forgot that bit… But, I’m sure that’s a Massive amount of Jiffy Pop and it HAS to be more than an occasional cupcake.
Surely you meant Jigglypuff?
This is the first time we’ve seen him eat something other than a cupcake or other pokemon.
what about the chimera back when there was the girly man disease?
He’s head-banging. A piece of cyclops just got caught in his teeth.
And a Happy Single’s Awareness Day to me, seeing this page update!
Mr. Fish, just throwing himself into the battle. “Hmm, trainer who gave me blunt force head trauma in danger? Must eat!”
Oh, berries…when you eat one, you can’t stop anymore.
Speaking from experience, this is true. I have a blueberry bush in my yard. Its fruits don’t last very long.
There are many adorable things in this that one would not expect to be adorable.
Worried, rushing Commander? Adorable.
Mister Fish tearing the flesh of a cyclops? Adorable.
Berry-damged Jared? Adorable.
Hahaha… the berries were so good they must have caused head trauma–they gave Jared Mr.-Fish-eyes!
I’ve panicked my dad the exact same way! I found a flower that turned into a vivid red powder when crushed and I pressed it all over my hands. He thought I had a rash :)
Ooooohhhhh….Eating all those berries with corset armor? Not good….Till he takes that silly armor off. I’ve worn corsets many a time…And you just cant eat much while wearing those. No wonder Jerrod looks like he’s dying.
I know that… I can lose up to 15 inches in a corset. I just typically “lightly snack” like I’m a size 0 runway model getting ready for the next runway event (“when I feel like I’m positively about to faint [from hunger]” lol. Then again when the corset is on and I’m busy I just forget about food all together, because not hungry. Then again I guess taking in what was then about one-third of my overall inches would do that to a person. Now it’d be a bit more than one-half (yay for genuine and healthily-done weight loss after years of failure lol).
This… this is just what I needed to brighten-up my Valentines’ Day. xD
I would probably have done the same thing that Jared did. Eat ALL of the berries.
Not sure if this is a site bug, but when I hit previous to go back a comic panel, it took me to last week’s strip no problem, but it wouldn’t let me hit next to go to this week’s current panel. Glitch on one of our end’s?
Also, why do I feel I missed a strip inbetween? So confused as to how Mr. Fish got there, lol
It might have something to do with how the archive system works. It could be that while going back works because last week’s comic is in the archive, attempting to go forward to this week’s comic doesn’t since it’s not in the archive yet.
Just a thought though, not entirely sure myself.
My stout belief is that the only sure way to kill something is the `axe to face` method, apparently biting to death also works. The second thing i believe is that giving people like Jared use of any weaponry in any situation is a very bad idea, they can either scare you or kill something, this situation with the berries is the first time in this comic that i thought someone had died. That one second of shock, followed by disbelief and then the realization that that author is not the type to kill characters(which i now place under suspicion).
On another note telling Jared to hurt something might not be reliable, but telling Jared to tell Mr Fish to kill something apparently works. Is this a paradox?
You have control of a gun and you shoot yourself, they give you a tank(Fish dragon) and you suddenly destroy armies(One cyclops).
You’re discounting Mr. Fish’s intelligence… Jared may suck at killing things, but Mr. Fish is a laser/fish/dragon/bitey/scaled thing… and he’s hungry.
Ahahaha, I was nervous after I saw the Tumblr teaser. Very good!
Note the troll face
It would only be a troll face if he was smiling.
its a trolled face not a troll face
“Jared = sucks at everything but motivation. Even his skills in that are questionable.”
“On the other hand, pet gyarados.”
Story of Jared’s life.
Surely, I can’t be the only one here who’s worried that Jared has eaten some poisonous berries.
Nnnope. That was my first thought as well.
Did you used to go to a site YSRMB?
I’ve been following your comic for a while now, and it just occurred to me your name seems really familiar.
Berries taste best when they got the sweet, sweet poison!
I was wondering if Mr. Fish had gone along with Jared.
Jared would never leave Mr. Fish behind. Who would take care of his cute little fishy fishy?
I don’t think anyone besides Jared would have the ability. Mr. Fish would probably eat them.
Yes! Mr. Fish returns! Also, gotta say, I love the new look for the site, quite awesome. Here’s looking towards a new age of humorous manly action! :D
Is it just me, or does the last panel remind anyone of B^U era Ctrl-Alt-Del?
Blood berries reminded me of this old manga…
Wow sideview Jared looks amaaaaazing!! I’m SO using that as my next avatar!
You do not mess with Mr. Fish!
Mr. Fishy-Fishy-Fishy-Fish! It’s good to see him surge to Jared’s safety.
How does Jarred afford feeding Mr fish? Sure we saw that one trip to the Pokemon park, but how often can he expect to get away with that?
His entire Pokemon career since Mr. Fish evolved? It’s what got him kicked out of the League in the first place. Plus he seems to live near the ocean, Mr. Fish can probably go eat a whale if he’s hungry.
wonder if commander badass will look like jared after he barbeq’s the rancid wolf meat… or he could give it to canadian guy!
not sure why, but when I press the button to go back to the comic before this one, the Next button to return to this comic is broken
Look at the new site! Ooooooooh.
I totally called the getting a crappy gift in return. :D
Jared’s face in that last panel is hilarious. It’s like he’s leaning his head back, but his mouth didn’t want to rotate.
Jared ate an stupifying amount of berries… XD
I love this artist.
…. I wasn’t aware that Mr. Fish had so many teeth
I would really love a compilation of all of Jared’s amazing facial expressions.
Jared looks so stoned.
Hah! Berries. Good one.
What? What? What? *clears throat* Boulderdash! I protest that panel most verily! Mr. Fish does not know Bite or Swallow! Jared, you must be an evil organization genius in disguise! You have altered the amount of moves Mr. Fish can have. I must know your secret! Stalker time!
If I recall, Mr. Fish actually has ‘Don’t eat Jared’ in his skill list, and pokemon can eat, without those abilities being in their skill list, last I knew (how else do they use berries?). It’s quite possible that that is no longer accurate, since it has been more than a few years
This is all true, but the idea of Jared being an ‘evil genius’ in the supposed form of an ‘questionable’ intelligence that has managed to alter the ability of Pokemon far beyond what several evil organizations could do, through the sheer use of Blunt Force Trauma, makes me giggle with the image it produces.
Gyrados’s next meal: people who give crud to pawns for use.
That is a Caligula level drunk face on Jared, so this probably doesn’t end well.
The important thing to note about berries is that many of them are poisonous! Jared is gonna be a sick sick little puppy!
Hey guys, need some help. Computer died a while back, and life got in the way, so trying to finally get back to my comics. Anyway, got most of them, but still trying to find one. Any help is appreciated, so if this sounds familiar, hope you post. In general, here it is. Several roommates in a house, one is crazy, one I believe is indian. The house itself is magical I guess, though they don’t realize it, then somehow they come to the attention of an organization lead by a crazy guy, and they begin observations, and when one of them confronts the crazy roommate he pulls out a hammer from nowhere and attacks him. Then there is a portal in their kitchen cabinet, and someone comes through and they have to go into it. At some point I think there might have been a talking cat that kisses on of them and they turn into a cat guy.
Shoot!! I know that one….But I lost the link to it when my comp died a horrible death. The crazy room-mate has a portal in his head. And it wasn’t that he turned into a cat, he was turning into a demon…The demon guy was named Bob, I think.
And now I can’t remember the name of it….One of my friends asked me about it recently & I couldn’t remember then either.
Oh…And the Indian guy has some form of computer magic.
Just googled a pic of it…It’s called Emergency Exit!! Yay Me!!
ooh, my Jared concern levels actually peaked! Lovin’ the new look too.
I almost wonder if the number of poisonous fruit bearing plants is lower in kanto and it’s nearby providances. well on the bright side if jared recovers he’ll know not to eat random berries he finds lying around in the woods, or is that giving him too much credit?
now would be a fantastic time for him to discover he’s allergic to berries! ^^
Oh man, if these ever get released into the drug stores, I’m buyin’ ev’ry single dahggamn ONE OF ‘EM!
And if I have to, I’ll hunt down a mammoth!
Can’t tell if mr. Fish is eating…. or puking
Dang it, I just caught up! Now I guess I have to go do stuff…
you know…about the pawn/intern comment…there is a difference…pawns are treated a lot better in most cases…
Hmm… March 9th and the last comic was on the 14th. This is starting to look like a dead comic.
I’ve never missed an update, my navigation buttons are fucked up and I haven’t heard back from my tech guys about the situation yet.
So, how long do you think it will take to fix the problem?
Hopefully not too long, I just heard back from my tech, he said he’s on it.
Never got around to shading this one, eh?
oh it was seven pages, nevermind
why am i even saying all this crap anyway??? ignore me. Please.
oh, and what the heck would anyone do with rancid wolf-meat? especially the floppy kind?? and weirdly enough, it also looks plushy and kind of soft and squishy.
That last panel LOOOOOOL XD
So…I guess this is the last strip? I just spent the the last four days binge-reading this(I started reading it initially a couple years ago) and am now saddened by the lack of Commander Badass that my life will have.
Jared: put “comic/the-punchline-is-video-games-with-the-word-dragon-in-the-title” as the last part to the site url, and you’ll get to the next after this one. Something is broken in the archives apparently.
Alternative is to go to Home-page and go backwards until you see familiar comic.
I thought interns don’t get paid, didn’t Commander say that Jared gets $500 a week?
Most interns do get paid. It’s only certain professions that do that, and even then the interns do still get some kind of benefits of value out of it, just not cash.
