I’m looking forward to Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. I’d be happy with just a new, decent Mortal Kombat game, that the DC characters are there is just icing on the cake as far as I’m concerned.
It does bring to question some interesting concerns, like how Superman is getting his ass kicked. Maybe those jerks from Outworld are just super strong, but then what happens when you go up against Supes with the Flash? What’s the reasoning there? I’m curious to see the explanation.
I can’t say I’m all that worried about the lack of fatalities for the heroes. The game has blood, battle damage, broken arms and such, I can live without seeing Superman rip someone’s spine out.
It won’t be a terribly entertaining life, but I’ll live.
Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks was an outstanding game. I’d love to have another one of those.
Players shirt is in the store, by the way.
Thanks for all of the suggestions (and photoshop mockups) for where you’d like to see the sillies… little strips… CADMini… I don’t even really know what to call them. I’ve been calling them “sillies” like you call the newspaper comics the “funnies”. When I started doodling the little “sackboy” versions of Ethan and Lucas it was just in the margins while I was drawing the regular strips, just being silly.
Anyway, there were a lot of different suggestions, but the prevalant opinion seemed to be to give the Sillies their own page on the site (and add them to RSS feed and their own archive). So I think that’s what we’re going to do. However I also think we’re going to add some nice, easy to locate visual links here on the front page to the different comics, sort of like Scott does. And probably a link to the side for good measure.
In a future site redesign, I think I’d like to pile the news, regular comic and Sillies onto one main page, but that’s for then and this is for now. We also have a few other nifty little features coming to the site soon, like archive bookmarking, embedded polls (for when we do our next Choose Our Adventure story) and such.
Please keep Dan “YoungWolf7” Smith in your thoughts today, he’s having surgey to operate on the recurrence of the cancer.
And I want to thank all of you who donated or sent Dan well wishes. He sent me an email and we’ve really made a noticeable impact for him and his family. He’s in an incredibly tough and scary place, to be dealing with cancer for a second time, and I can’t even imagine it. But our help means that he can focus his energy on beating the disease, and not worrying as much about how he and his family will pay for the fight.
So again, thank you.
Here’s a second Daily Silly for you (and Pierre, because he wanted to be a character).
