    I actually preordered it. Hopefully it will be good.

    Actually, wouldn't live folding be extremely erotic? I guess it depends on the sound effects that go with it. lol

    I'm not one to kink shame, but if Eli Vance's death scene got you going I'm not sure whether to be sad or disgusted.


    Esoteric "material-based" settings like Paper Mario and Unraveled and the like need some better context building. My brain is constantly trying to figure out if it's watching something horrific or harmless.

    It's not like Sticker Star, is it? Nobody really liked Sticker Star. But trust me, if you want something more in the vein of classic Paper Mario entries, try Bug Fables. It recently came out for the Switch, and I beat it on Steam a long time ago. It's good fun.

    For those keeping track, I believe the title of this comic makes the eight reference to Kenny Rogers.

    Tycho is in Arizona. He should not be there, their Covid numbers are terrible.
    Honestly, he has the Thompson-Okanagan Plateau and Columbia Basin practically in his backyard. He would have to drive past 5-6 deserts to get there. But I guess Tycho would only use the right kind of desert for body disposal. Because he cares.

    Is anyone compiling a timeline of Tycho locations across the last few months of comics?

    You've got to know when to hold 'em
    Know when to fold 'em
    Know when to duck and jump
    And know when to run
    You never count your 1 ups
    When you're jumpin' cross the lava
    There'll be time enough for pow'r ups
    When the level's done


    That's all I got. I'll see myself out.

    But 'kink' is right there in the name.

    Doesn't have to a terminal crease, just a solid fold to get the juices out flowing.

    Anyone else deeply bothered by how much the color of Gabe's speech bubbles changes in the last few comics?

  • zeromhzeromh Registered User regular
    I'm not bothered by that, but I honestly do find it hard to track the bubbles nowadays. I *know* that they're color-coded, but for some reason my brain still has trouble with it.

    Don't rule out body retrieval.

    Gabe's last line in the 2nd panel makes me think of people who can't stand when someone dogears a book.

    Maybe next comic he'll be playing E.T. on the Atari.

    Oh, the context in this game is pretty solid.
