true love brawls

fan art week on the buffalog continues! only this time i drew a  fan comic.  a NINTENDO fan comic! a super smash bros fan comic to be more specific. and it’s up on the super awesome video game fan comic site LIFE METER today! read it now!


like my last post, this comic is kinda fan specific so don’t feel bad if you don’t completely “get” it. but i’m still pretty proud of it, especially since i completed it in only two weeks (this is unusual for me) and is an idea i’ve had doggy paddling around my head for almost THREE YEARS. plus, i love drawing kirby.

EDIT: for those unfamiliar with the game, this might lend some clarification on that last panel.

    Thought it was really great Mike, and understood all of it until the last frame. Go figure. :P I haven’t played Super Smash Bros very often, once or twice, but your drawings were, as usual, stunning. Hope someday I have half the mad skills you’ve got. ;)

    I saw it, and the first thing I thought/said aloud was: “AWEsome!” in a sing-song-y voice, actually.

    So great.

    zach- thanks! this might help clarify that last panel:

    liana- YAY! thanks. :)

    matt- i tried to keep things a bit simpler this time around so i could get the pages done fairly quickly- so that means a lot!

    Hey Mike, wonderful work! I’ve been following your stuff for a couple years now ever since I saw your comments on Pascal’s blog. I think I’ve fallen in love with your line work and color. But don’t tell them!
