Uh-oh. While it’s nice that the possum-mutant-murder-creature is no longer in the same room with Musashi and jefbot, something tells me that letting it get back outside isn’t a good thing. Comforting to know Mu has bot’s back during crisis events like this one, though.
See you Friday!
Well Mu is certainly a badass now, protecting bot from that crazy possum! Loving this new MWF schedule!!! Keep the awesomeness coming!!!
hey, f_f – good ta see ya! yep, Mu’s awesome, and we haven’t even seen the extent of his badassery, yet! glad you’re loving the new schedule, and i’ll do my best to keep this storyline as awesome as i possibly can!
and check you out – you just achieved the Shades of Firsting! wear them well: if you throw these, they act as a flying guillotine/boomerang, for those occasions where you find yourself weaponless:
Wow this was so damn early/late I didn’t even notice I was first! Woohooo! I am adding this to my Shades of Firsting collection! 😀
Good at dodging! 😛
Lookit me… fashionably second.
dodging/evading is bot’s best move, Insectoid!
and congrats on fashionably Seconding!
Apparently Mu is more of a dodge-and-run fighter than a all-out brawler. I’ve always sortof wondered what a hamster’s fighting personality would be…
heh, after getting first last time, I didn’t really try today. =P
well, it remains to be seen what kind of fighter Mu is, Shift, if given the chance to fight one-on-one instead of having to shove bot out of the way! i’m sure we’ll find out soon, though. 🙂
1. Get abducted by aliens
2. Get awesomely modified by said aliens
i wonder if bot could swing that plan, TCG? maybe Mu can get him a discount?
Did u know that u have created a monster in the form of cute n cuddly Mu?
You have doomed us JB!!!
Now u must make a shirt with boken holding Mu to atone for your sins.
ha! well, i’m happy you’re diggin’ Monster Mu, Jf#300! sorry for “dooming you all,” though. my bad. and i’d LOVE to do a shirt with Mu on it. maybe i’ll put up a poll to see how much interest there would be. 😀
Well thats just great. I can’t decide whether I think Mu is cute or badass… Or both. Is it weird that I think the ferret or whatever the red glowing thing is looks adorable in a way? I still think its scary, but a wee bit adorable.
maybe Mu’s just badassedly cute, DAS! as for the “red glowing thing” – i’m not sure if i’d classify it as adorable but it is kinda cute in a horrifying way. maybe.
No epic ninja Musashi this round? We shall see soon?
Also, scarf? Yes?
(I also kinda thought Mu’s hand was something on ‘bot’s back for a sec)
no epic ninja Mu yet, GG! hopefully, he has some of those skills to show off later on in the storyline. as for the Scarf: i make no promises. bot should’a kept a better eye on it.
I like how the two panels kinda blend together at the end there. Keep up the good work, though I’m a little sad Mu didn’t display any bad assery…you heard me 😉
glad you like how those panels got split up at the bottom there, theBean! this storyline’s allowing me to experiment a bit more with layout and panel design/placement. as for Mu – there’ll be plenty more opportunities in this arc for him to show his skills. 🙂
Looks like a little outside help is needed. I can think of several people ( One of them my own intellectual property ) that could do some real damage to that critter
heh. yeah, maybe Mu and bot can hire some mercenaries to help, JGT.
Wasn’t exactly thinking mercs could help; I don’t know if a M4 carbine would help against something that has alien tech implants. Kinda need something ( or someone ) that would be as overpowered as that crazy possum
bot and/or Mu need an upgrade, JGT!
Heh heh, that was clever. Hope that possum likes gravity, velocity, and pavement.
I’ll be surprised if that creature isn’t sliced by the broken glass.
yep, he probably did get a bit cut-up methinks, Rainey.
it would be nice if those factors took the possum-thing out for bot and Mu, Anime fan! my bot-sense is telling me that that’s not the case, though. bushes below probably broke his fall, sadly. we’ll find out in the next strip!
Wow. Love the action shot in the second panel.
thanks, Saeed! i was pretty happy with that panel, too. 🙂
A shirt, little hamster Mu on the front with a large alienMu sillouette behind him. with glowing markings in the darkness XD
Anyways… “DAMN YOU BOT GRAB YOUR SCARF”
more interest in a Mu shirt! (see Jf#300’s comment above.) glad to see you BOTpeeps are diggin’ him. will try and put up a poll about a shirt, soon, Orzahn. 🙂
as for the Angry Scarf – if it hadn’t slunk away after their last adventure, bot would surely be “suiting up” right now!
Damn, I figured he had just discarded it somewhere.
The “like” inserted in Jefbot’s sentence totally made me think of Shaggy. 🙂 It doesn’t hurt that my daughter has been watching a lot of Scooby Do lately.
Go, Musashi! Who would have thought that Jefbot would be saved by a hamster. Granted, it’s a mutant, robo-hamster, but still. 😉
ha! maybe jefbot will keep a box of Muby snacks on hand for Musashi, Shanna! 😉
and, yes: go Musashi! mutant, robo-hamsters can be quite useful a times.
btw what ever happened to abraxas the ferret?
Are you thinking what I’m thinking?
I hope that’s not Abraxas they’re fighting…
as far as we know, Abraxas (and Miyuki) are still at bot’s new apartment, safe and sound, Orzahn.
I’m glad Mu’s back, but I was hoping that he would strike the whatever till he can’t move. Not that I’m sadistic or anything, but I was looking for a dark side induced by the aliens transforming him. But I’m happy he cares for bot. 😀
don’t worry, ROM! – Mu will have many opportunities to strike things in this storyline. heheh. remains to be seen if he has a dark side like bot, though.
Is it bad that I’m also starting to wonder what their former landlord will think/do to ‘Bot for wrecking the place when he was just supposed to pick up his things? Or have I just been watching too much JLU and its inconsequential destroying of buildings?
nope! not bad, WulfBane – jefbot will be concerned about that, too, no doubt. if only he had a “Damage Control”-type organization to help him out!
I’m wondering if the damage can be fixed and how.
I love these bigger pages and your paneling is really cool… I love how Bot and Mu exist in both bottom panels simultaneously while the crazy possum thing jumps out the window… and I’m glad to see Mu protecting Bot… I can’t wait for the next page!!!!
glad you’re likin’ the larger format, Chameleon! it’s letting me do stuff i just couldn’t pull off in the standard 3-4 panel comic strip format. and i’m excited that you’re excited about where this goes next!
When running from polar bear U dont have to be faster than a bear, just faster than the other guy running with you.
heheh. i’m sure Mu could’ve handled the situation that way, Maryz, but he cares! or is just acting on instinct. there’s that.
I’m going to guess that it’s time to GTFO now.
By the way, Have you seen Pixie around lately?
i haven’t, Fijiman. i know she was busy moving and stuff for a while. i should check in on her.
Love the panel bleed!
thanks, MC! evil-mutant-possum-thing could not be contained!
All that badassery in such a tiny package.
indeed, Dj! and he only gets more badass from here. 🙂
Well, this confirms that Mu is definitely on Jefbot’s side. That is a good thing.
Now, I wonder where the alien is going to go off to? Perhaps after “the other”?
yep: bot and Mu friendship: confirmed.
and you’ll find out where the mutant possum thing is going in the next strip…
Looks like Musashi’s rescue of BOT was a *puts on cool shades* smashing success…
*guitar riff* YEAAAAHHH!!!
The real victim here are those apartment windows.
they did an upstanding job for the first five years of this strip, Foxmouse. we shan’t forget.
So Musashi chose to save ‘bot rather than take down the Evil Hamster of Evil. That’s very good to know!
I hope this doesn’t mean ‘bot won’t get his deposit back . . .
it does reveal where Mu’s priorities lie, Sarah W. definitely good to know.
as for jefbot and the Cornfather getting back their security deposit: yeah, that’s looking less and less likely.
By the time they leave, every window is going to be broken, isn’t it?
ha! one more window to go, Bunk!
So… adorably… badass!!!
bot or Musashi, Psy? ;D
