085 – Runaway Dog
Wed, October 1 – 12:00 AM – By Matthew
After 84 comics, Ness finally appears!
This is one of those comics where I start to worry if the punchline is too vague or unclear or whatever to those that aren’t as familiar with the game (or possibly through a fault of my own. I did have to make compromises in the last frame–I wanted the guy in the foreground to have a shocked expression, but human anatomy said that wasn’t possible).
My annoying insecurities aside, EarthBound is an amazing, outstanding game. It’s artistic, it’s fun, it’s touching, it’s extremely memorable (I could go on for pages but this is long enough)…and it still isn’t on the Virtual Console. So get with the program already, Nintendo!
