429 – Toilet and Trouble
Tuesday, August 14 — 12:00 AM
This is another strip that went through a little tweaking! Take a look at an early version of the initial idea. It’s basically about Mario taking the wrong pipe and ending up in just about the worst place possible, but his desperate words of warning were a little vague to have the right impact (after all, there are “yellow pipes” everywhere). At any rate, I enjoyed playing with the expressions as usual, particularly Wario’s quick change from amusement to terror.
Please direct your attention away from the vanishing roll of toilet paper in panel 2–sometimes text takes precedence!
