We are in the homestretch on this one.
Remind me, Tank and Spider are on the same team, right?
And this is going to be awesome!
Naw, Tank had a different team, it was just Spider until Ace showed up.
Thought Tank was on Spiders team as well, can we get a roster?
Also, what happen between panel 3 and panel 5?
Put up a roster back in August.
But on this one Spider and Tank look to be in the same team?
I’m a little confused now, but it’s all good. Gonna see in the next one what he does anyways, as it is it’s very omnious, lol.
Nice work :)
The coloured rims of the wheel with the faces just denote a theme for each. Tank and Angel are the cyborgs. The pie chart pieces inside there are the teams.
You’ll note Angel is in her own slice of pie (and thus the description is solely about her). Just like the Raptors and Jet are paired together, they’re a team. Ace seems to be the odd one out along with Angel in the chart.
But it’s overall a great way to put the teams together and get exposition at the same time
Angel is near the center of the slice containing her fellow Valkyries and half of Deluge. Did you perhaps mean Spider?
Colours are the families, grey slices are the teams. It’s kinda confusing because I had stuff I was planning to do with those dudes on Tank’s team that would have made it clearer but things ultimately come down to “What do I have time to draw this week” and plans have to change to accommodate.
Have you revealed who the third cyborg is? I don’t recall that ever happening yet.
Which third cyborg?
The way Jones’ panel overlays the pie chart and the spacing gap that creates makes it look like there’s a third cyborg hidden behind the image.
I see what you mean. It’s supposed to be Ace there, but obviously he isn’t a cyborg, and also they didn’t realize he was playing, so he ended up on the other side with his brothers.
I didn’t get that until you explained it. Thanks.
The Twins and the Charlies both sound neat. Wish you’d been able to give them a page. I understand how time crowded them out, though.
Hopefully they’ll get a panel or two as we wrap this up. I’m sure they’re up to something amusing.
Perhaps they’re still watching that wrestling match Ace & Rock Lobster were watching for a bit.
Personally, I’m expecting them to swoop in and land a come-from-behind victory.
I can see that. Possibly with a dramatic reveal of Jones’ secret identity. (I’m guessing she is a deep cover spy for a rival spacefuture nation.)
These families would make a good day-time soap opera. It would even draw more audience than the WWE.
Think about the WWE being a “soap opera after hosing it down with testosterone,” then compare that to MGDMT being a “soap opera after hosing it down with testosterone, with a liberal sprinkling of Terminator/Cybernetics.”
Oh, I see it now, thanks :)
In any case, I don’t feel it’s particularly difficult to pay attention to the comic just because there was some unclearity regarding who’s on who’s team, I mean you get the gist regardless. Tank and Commander is definitely not on the same team :P
I wanna say thanks though, checking the latest part each monday brightens up my mondays. I am one of those who don’t particularly love my job, and I definitely hate mondays. So checking this comic brightens my day and make at least something good come out of those dreaded mondays :P
I’m kinda upset the three Charlies aren’t named “Charly”, “Charlee” and “Charleston” or something like that.
I feel like that should be the new onomatopoeia for sudden appearances. For boosted dramatic effect, add a touch of Inception “BWAAAHHH”.
So, shit just got real in a way I was not expecting. Bravo, Coela.
I get the feeling that this is where the final battle music starts playing.
“Battle music”. Yeah. This is kind of where my mind went…. https://youtu.be/4NJQvswrSPg
My mind went to “The final countdown”
nah look at spider, this needs Boss music rather than just battle music.
Truly, there’s a dozen different directions this could go. We’ve got
Spider https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W07ONz69ai0 ,
Angel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P73Z6291Pt8 ,
Tank https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nK_iY824NLs ,
Ace https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZohPmz0RVVY ,
Every single one of those was perfect XD
i love that you interpreted Live And Let Die as boss music. brilliant and entirely accurate. Musically, it works so well as boss music. Implies that Ace is absurdly powerful.
the rest of the choices were accurate / funny / surprisingly diverse too
Is it just me, or does The Beastmaster them sound a lot like Original Battlestar Galactica theme? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHp9oZPqs8E
Angel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iof5pRAIZmw ,
Tank https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4uxJxMjz3Io ,
Ace https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHuD-ySr1AY ,
So hard shelled, but squishy Jonesy is standing next to a guy who is both unbalanced and can wreck the Commander? Where’s a walrus selkie when you need him?
Also, I miss Canadian Guy. What’s he been up to?
More blood transfusions.
Being Canadian, I assume.
If anything can get Rock to actually throw down with Tank, threatening his noncombatant of a friend/partner/lover(?) might actually do it. Problem is we don’t know what kind of skills Tank is packing, he might kick Commander’s ass anyway.
Guess we can only wait until next week to find out!
Right now I don’t think she really registers on his radar. It might be because she “stole” Rock from his team, but he seems to have a mad on for Angel herself right now. Not that I think he’d hesitate to act in this case. It seems like simply avoiding confrontation might not be a viable option in this situation.
Pretty sure while nobody wants to fight with Tank if he laid a hand on Jonesy they’d all help out.
I’m guessing Tank is about to GET REKT
Looking back on the “Team Graph” I can’t help but feel Jonesy is covering up a secret third member of Spider’s team.
Wow, did people really find that chart that hard to read? I mean, I stumbled a bit the first time I looked, but the fact that the Commander wasn’t grouped with Angel and the Raptors weren’t with Ace made it pretty easy to grok how it was meant to be read, I thought.
If there were a third Cyborg behind the portrait of Jonesy, AND they were on Spider’s team (barring lies*, both are Jossed by Coela above), they would have been the second member of Spider’s team, not the third, as she and Tank are not on the same team.
* But since she’s not Andrew Hussie, we can probably discount this idea.
Shit —-> The fan…
Wow Spider is packing a lot of spiky, slashy, cutty and snarky death on her…
What’s the point of even being a combat cyborg if you can’t have a fuckload of pop-up weaponry?
(This is part of why Tank feels inadequate)
I guess this is really the part Tank was looking forward to. Come to think of it, all psychological and aggro-juice considerations aside, he’s basically like the combat-exclusive player in a DND game, who gets terminally bored and disruptive until there’s a fight. Then he just seems to materialise and starts brawling with whatever is there (and possibly anything that looks suspicious).
When your only tools are fists…
“What do you do?”
“I PUNCH IT!”
Hey Coelasquid is your comic available to vote for on TopWebComics?
Wow! That’s some high stealth from a barbarian character!
When he’s not actively raging, Tank is amazingly stealthy. It’s kinda like the inverse-ninja law, but not quite (this is what I choose to believe, and it only adds to the humor of the nondescript-space-future military being able to harness that kind of stuff)
Well, if the future space military wins wars through popularity, maybe they’re able to harness tropes to power their weapons. Maybe that’s why everyone seems so (dangerously) genre savvy.
Naw. He’s not a barbarian, he’s an elephant centaur rogue.
I really hope Tank has calmed down a bit ’cause otherwise this could get REALLY ugly.
I’m hoping it’s a big false scare and at this point Tank has calmed down a bit and is looking for Commander to apologize and ask for help fixing his brain chemistry again.
He’s been dosing aggro juice for pretty much the whole event, wouldn’t it be ironic if now that it’s fight time he’s running low?
it would be epic actually. picking fight the whole time and the story ends with him going on a guilt trip for the shit he gave to angel and rock :P
Like rock said, he was chill before so no reason to believe he wont go back to that once his chemistry levels out
It’s interesting how this is pretty much recreation for must of the guys, and Tank is the only one getting fussed about it. He’s basically being that dude who flips the table because he’s losing at Monopoly.
Nobody wins at Monopoly. We all have that dude inside us.
Why does anyone ever play monopoly!?!? No one enjoys it and it only ends with someone rage quitting after landing on go to jail or someone’s hotels too many times.
Ok, now Commander just has to come in with an army of Cuchulain looking Walrus Selkie reingorcements a la Rohan and this will be complete.
So, Angel is going to knock out Tank with a punch in the face?
Angel has to make Rock give up fishing before rest at home
I wonder if tanks calmed down by now
I like to think that Tank’s finally balanced out and is actually here to offer Angel an honest to God apology for his earlier ebhaviour.
I’m looking at Tank’s expression there… he probably HAS cooled down a bit. And he probably wants to end this as much as anyone else. This is probably the part he’s been looking forward to. “Okay, now to remind everyone I’m the toughest in an actual physical brawl, and then they can flush out my brain chemistry and help me calm down. Man, I love these guys when I’m not too gassed up with psycho drugs to think straight…”
And it is only now that I appreciate just how large tank is.
I can’t imagine he hasn’t calmed down some since he hasn’t been one for not announcing his presence until now and because I don’t see him being angry right now helping to wrap this plot up.
We still don’t know what tank is going to do nor how rad his base actually is. but eager to see what will happen next.
btw, this one http://thepunchlineismachismo.com/archives/comic/summer-spice-edition hasn’t been coloured. just so you don’t forget it and colour it whenever you feel like it. :)
Maybe it’s just because of all the Tolkien I’ve just watched, but attractive bathrobe person looks like Legolas.
So many ways this could go from here. I doubt Jet and Ace will sit by if Tank goes for Angel, for one. Or Rock could show up and smack Tank with a large trout…
It’s always cool to see Tank’s size in perspective, yet he is vastly eclipsed by Angel in the radness department. This is going to be awesome
“Hey uh… sorry ’bout callin’ ya a bitch.”
Looking back at this arc, this is exactly what my friends and I do the few rare times we get on Minecraft together. Annoy each other, steal each other’s stuff, build a five star hotel, then the pvp breaks out until we’re all bored and decide we’re done for the day.
I know you’re probably ready to have this arc done with, but personally I dig stuff that rounds out characters and have really been enjoying this one, even with all the strips that were just “look at these fluffy raptors.”
Then again, who can hate fluffy raptors, either? Only heartless monsters, that’s who.
I spent several months thinking this comic was dead because i favorited a comic instead of the home page, suffice to say im feeling very foolish, and rather happy that i just had so much to catch up on
Did anyone else think “then suddenly , Tank” when they saw the last panel?
He does look a bit calmer, maybe he’s ready to play nice.
Besides, I wanna see Spider fight!
BTW thanks for Angel’s abs Coelasquid
man dude is way bigger that i realised
He’s almost eight feet tall, They mention it on another page.
OOooohh the color, I love it *orgasms*
Is it just me or does the boar hat angel has on look happy in the last panel?
Man i’m super confused, I dont know who half of these characters are.
thanks. not new but just couldnt remember if those characters were MGDMT people or from video game / movie franchises that I’m not familiar with.
Welcome to the comic then, if you dont know many of the people, then you must be new, Welcome, have some glue!
He hasn’t smashed anything despite having the element of surprise. If I had to guess, I’d say Tank feels like a real heel for calling Angel a bitch.
Where is the joke Dobson?
YOU SAID THERE WOULD BE JOKES
Huh. Come to think of it, I can’t recall seeing anyone on Tanks team aside from Tank thus far.
Is it weird that Angel in the second panel looks amazingly attractive to me? Am I weird you guys? Because she looks badass.
I think Angel’s rams horns disappeared for this comic. They’re back in the next one. :x
Yup, I had two hours to write, sketch, and ink it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Angel looks really rad in this one XD
