329 – Overgrowth
Super Mario Bros. 2 has always been one of the better games of the NES era, and I’m pretty sure I’ll always prefer it to the Japanese SMB2 (a.k.a. Lost Levels). I mean, it gave us Shy Guys! I like making comics about older games like this; I think there’s a sort of timelessness to a lot of NES/SNES games that pretty much will never go away.
But even if Wart’s plan here ended up leading to his being overthrown, at least he got an easy way to rid most of the kingdom of his one weakness. Although it makes me wonder why he had a vegetable-producing plant in his lair in the first place.
We’re going to another convention: Animazement, in Durham, North Carolina! While I’m partly going because of the Phoenix Wright musical project (which will have a panel), Chris and I will also be setting up a booth, so swing by and get some BitF merchandise or a free drawing from myself! The convention will be during Memorial Day weekend, May 27th – 29th.
Oh also, if any of you are having trouble with 1) pop-under ads, or 2) ads with sound/video, those are not supposed to be there! But Keenspot is helping remove those types of ads, so don’t worry.
