I am a young man. Young enough that, when I was in my infancy, and for some time after, my parents were fans of The X-Files. In fact, when I was a baby, they would put me in one of those bouncy seat things in the living room with them so that they could watch it. I blame a lot of my personality on this fact.
This comic is, obviously to anyone who’s a fan of The X-Files, a reference to Gillian Anderson’s infamous pregnancy during much of the first and second seasons of the show. This pregnancy, and the difficulties of filming with it, is the direct cause of many of the major developments of those seasons, and setting the groundwork for the plot of the remaining five. It’s also the cause behind her character’s fairly iconic bulky trench coats.
The point that I’m trying to get across here in this rant is that…I’ve just made a joke that’s been out of date for, roughly, my entire lifetime. Now that’s the kind of comedy you can only find here at Kong Tower. Which is why you should vote for it on Top Web Comics, as well as to see Kong Tower #18: My Spider Social Anxiety is Tingling! remastered in full color. Go ahead. Click the button there.
[EDIT]: Sorry, but no new comic on Tuesday, July 26, because of reasons. Mostly I just got caught up with other things and need the time to build up a buffer anyway. I have however updated the voting incentive to the colorized Kong Tower #19: Introducing, the Cool Quartet! So there’s that.
If you’re thinking “Mulder and Scully didn’t look like that!” it might be because you haven’t seen this early promotional image that comes up on Netflix and which my dad finds hilarious. It might also be because Gillian Anderson’s jawline is IMPOSSIBLE TO DRAW RIGHT FOR SOME REASON. Duchovny? Duchovny’s easy: tiny eyes, bulbous nose, absurd chin; you’re done. But Anderson? You can never get the cheek right without her looking weird or old or something. There’s at lest one other webcomic artist who agrees with me on this. Go ahead, google up some images and try it.
Vote for Me! Kong Tower #12: Required Secondary Powers Required II in full color should be up as an incentive!
This one was goddamn complicated.
Kong Tower #9: Unfortunate Power Combinations, a personal favorite, is up as a voting incentive in FULL COLOR! Click the box below to vote!
I really like how this one turned out. For those who don’t get the joke.
Kong Tower #6: Literally Anyone is now up as an incentive of Top WebComics in FULL COLOR! Click the box and vote to see.
Had fun drawing this many odd characters. I’ve been looking forward to this comic for a while and it’s nice to finally get here.
Please, please, PLEASE Vote for me. Please.
Man, I really like how that chiaroscuro stuff turned out. Gotta do that sort of thing more often.
I struggled with what to name the Robin to Monkey Man’s Batman. I considered another Journey to the West reference, but I didn’t think I could make it work. So I thought, Bats are to Monkeys as Robins are to What? Somewhat larger, jungle-dwelling, flightless: Kiwis! They’re adorable!
A vote for Kong Tower is a vote for adorable flightless birds who’s eggs are so big they squish their insides! And to #4 in color.
