Something quick and easy since it’s V-day. Which I will probably spend going to see the Lego Batman Movie alone because my life is equal parts nerdy and sad.
Drawing was done for a Top Web Comics contest, you can support my dear comic by liking it on Facebook here.
Unfortuneately, I can’t put us a colorized Kong Tower #45: A Case of the Living Dead II right now, because a bunch of my files got f**king corrupted somehow. So it’s still #44 up there. Vote anyway please.
My God could it be?! A comic with only minimal copy-pasting!! Call the presses!
So this has been a pretty shitty week, huh? Convenient that I had a whole comic about retaining the hope to fight against impressive (and oppressive) forces already scripted. I hope you all make it through the difficult times to come, and want you to know that I will stand with you in whatever way I can. We may not have superpowers, but that doesn’t mean we have to succumb to the malevolent Nazis in real life. (MAN I wish that were a euphemism)
The barrel-of-monkeys-Rang thrown by MM smacked the Nazi super-gun out of his hand while cutting his palm, in case that’s not clear. I couldn’t get a speed effect to look quite right.
Vote for Kong Tower to see comic #32: Do Me a Favor: Tell the Audience About Me colorized.
So yeah, those are the two main different types of superpowers in this world. Basically it’s the difference between Mutants and Mutates as described here, except the Mutants always have powers that don’t break the laws of physics in really obvious ways. That’s enough text-heavy world-building for now.
Vote to see Kong Tower #30: An Ode to Punching Bad-Guys colorized! (That guy isn’t a Curio or an Aberrant. He’s just absurdly badass.) (This is actually up now. Sorry for the delay, I just liked looking at that one from last week. All shiny.)
Peregrine can run fast in his apartment cause he buys high-traction flooring.
I just missed these guys’ faces honestly. Also I’d had this idea for a while and wanted to make it before we got too far into he ‘day’ and also the comic I had planned for today was pretty complicated and it got to be Monday afternoon and I hadn’t penciled it yet. This one was simpler.
Coincidentally, the colorized Kong Tower #11: Required Secondary Powers Required, in which these two both first had lines, is the current voting incentive. Click the banner and see how much shittier (if less repetitious) my art was back then!
The astute reader might notice that Peregrine is running at extremely high speeds despite it being established that he has difficulty gaining traction. However, I would point out that in this case he has the opportunity to push off of a wall, earning most of his momentum without the issue of traction. How he’s making such sharp turns is an entirely different story, in that I really have no f**king idea. Hey, I got half way there, that’s better than most writers in this genre bother with.
Vote for Kong Tower
My original idea for this comic involved him calmly lamenting that he had to quit being a hero because his super-suit kept giving him cancer. Seriously. I really need to work on this whole “comedy” thing.
Vote for Kong Tower
Striped sweater=criminal again. Really killing it with the symbolism lately.
Special thanks to my friend Kayla, for inspiring this comic. Well, I say inspired, she suggested I copy that comic that’s been floating around the Internet forever but I’m too lazy to find a source for about Spider-Man shooting spiders out of his wrists, I told her my original idea for this strip in which the joke was that Arachne’s only power was wall-crawling and she had no idea how to fight, so the cutaway panel was of her ripping a criminal’s face off, and she suggested I not do that. So here this is.
Vote for Kong Tower to see an exclusive full-body, colored image of the heroine above!
You can tell they’re bad guys because one is wearing a black-and-white striped sweater.
If this doesn’t seem to make much sense, it may be because I released two of these today and you didn’t check the first one. It might also be because this comic is largely nonsensical.
If you’ve been wondering desperately what the waitress’s story is, you must be very easily entertained. Also you’ll get some answers next week. If you’ve been wondering desperately where the hell this comic is going, you and me both, bucko.
Seriously, Vote for Kong Tower
I’m going to be really, really evil and provide a link to the TV Tropes page this comic references. See you suckers in like a month!
Note that I’ve released this page with the next one today. That’s right: two comics! On the same Tuesday! Like Christmas in July, baby!
And in case you missed the update on last week’s comic, remember to Vote for Kong Tower
