probably vulnerable to bullets in the head too, but I’d keep that option as a last resort

A controllerang(or whatever they’re called) should also do the trick. I don’t think a bullet will be necessary. Or maybe a random arrow to the chest like the old days.

What about those ninjas that come out of nowhere? Like from the beginning of Ctrl Alt Del?

So… Did Ethan not invent Winter-Een-Mas in this universe?

I think that you’re mistaken. Winter-Een-Mas has never been “invented.” It has been revealed; nay, bestowed, as a gift, from those divine spirits which embody the traits of gaming. It is passed on to those who are worthy, in every timeline, in every reality – whether it be a game developer, a games journalist, a somewhat neurotic guy living with his best bud and sentient robot, or a webcomic artist trying to come up with an amusing after-Christmas storyline. It will persist and endure as long as gaming itself does.

Game journalist? Game journalists would write articles about how Winter-een-mas is misogynist in an attempt to destroy it. And I’m sure everyone who goes to the Crown Bowl is also entitled (because of course, wanting quality products and services when you part with hard earned money is a bad thing and an idea that needs to be quashed).

Then again, this is a webcomic and not reality, so maybe the game journalists in this universe don’t suck like they do in reality.

Uh, wow. Way to paint every individual with a similar profession with one prejudiced stereotype. Are you saying that you don’t read any news-related gaming media at all? You’re the one guy who wandered into a WalMart electronics section sometime in November, looked at the shelves, and said “Huh, I didn’t know they were making a second Red Dead! Wonder if it’s any good?”

Its been a while since I read the entire series but I thought he changed it after Lilah was kidnapped where the winner of a championship took the crown for a year

There’s been a reboot since then. New timeline, superheroes, cool shit.

In this timeline, Lucas is gay (or at least bi), Ethan has a different love interest, superheroes exist and our two favorite dorks are some of them, and Ethan didn’t invent Winter-Een-Mas or the Game Games Bowl, or “The Crown Bowl” as it’s called now.

Now I want to go back through the Tome of Ethan v1 and read the original Crown Bowl storyline.

Now you can! Here’s the link.
There are no comics, the Games Games Bowl is a pdf; this links to the “comic” and newspost.

For anyone that’s confused, Ethan created Winter-een-mas on Earth 1.0, but never got super powers. On Earth 2.0, Winter-een-mas was created years ago, but not by Ethan. He is a super-hero on this Earth, however. Tim hasn’t defined which Earth in the multiverse the sillies live in. I assume there is an Earth where everyone is black and white outline characters instead of full color. That would be very interesting to explore in the next crossover event.

If this storyline involves Ethan recruiting Lucas to seduce and abandon Daniel in order to make him distracted during the tournament so that he plays poorly, I fully support that

Haha, yes! Lucas can bring his sexy floating arrow wiles to bear.

I wonder if Tran is a patreon subscriber.

My predictions on the participants:
Abby (from 1.0, former queen/king of Winter-een-mass)
Emily
Ethan
Black Hat (the wallhacking son of a glitch from the second A&D, assuming he is out of jail by now)
And of course Tran himself.
It’s of course plausible that Lucas or Scott will get in and Ethan will cry in a corner for a few weeks.

To everybody asking, Tim answered this on the last post: No, Ethan did not create Winter-een-mas in this universe.

When did Lucas become gay? I remember reading this before the art style changed and he had problem with women in the past. I have no problem with him being gay but I’d like to go back and read when he changed so I can catch up on issues of the comic I’ve missed. Thanks for any information.

If I remember and this is only if I remember right, I think he’s actually bi in this universe

Let’s face it, we’re all vulnerable to being taped to a wall. It’s just a matter of how much tape.

Am I the only one who looked at that first panel and wondered why Lucas was holding a toilet plunger? On second glance its obvious its the coffee mug he’s holding in the other frames but that looked very strange for a moment there.
