Oh my goodness, speech bubble duties are more tedious than I thought they'd be. Kudos to Guybrush for what he does.

Anyways, today we get to see Gardevoir completely lose it. 'Twas very fun to draw. ^_^ With everybody on the team under quite a bit of pressure (and with me having recently begun playing Skullgirls) I thought this strip would be appropriate.

Man, maybe it's that damn empathy kicking in again, but this comic was kinda a bummer to color.
Like, I just wanna hug Gardevoir now, after making her all grayscale and stuff.

Good news everybody, I've gotten the damn essay finished. Now I finally have time for the good things in life: this comic, writing that idea for a sitcom I had and building the Lego Delorian from Back to the Future I got for Christmas.

The original punchline for this strip was Roll reading a list of patients that had previously drawn Gardevoir to the edge but it dragged on too long.

Semi-related: I got a Darth Vader stress ball for Christmas but because of it's awkward shape it's hard to get a grip on and just generates more stress trying to get a good angle.

Makes you wonder whether what caused that burst of anger. The constant tension caused by being a psychiatrist, the laugh track... or Glasses Gardevoir still being around. Any of those three would be difficult to live with after a while.

I think he's being genuine, Box. His own comic also consists of black lines.

Oh.
The ellipses threw me off.

Hello.

Is Wilco missing his arms in that third picture?!
TheMightyBox edit delete reply
TheMightyBox
Possibly.
I wasn't entirely sure either.

spycrab king

Thanks for the sub, Rvan! ^_^

The joke was that everyone abandoned Wilco for Gardevoir because Wilco's gruesome deaths have become old hat.

For a second... I thought the events were something like this:
1: Gardevoir really needs a hug.
2: Gardevoir tires hugging herself and fails.
3: Gardevoir tries to hug Wilco (offscreen)
4: Wilco is screaming in pain from being stabbed by Gardevoir's chest thing.
5: Roll's comment implying this isn't the first time Gardevoir tried to hug someone and failed.

... And they say Lucario is the one with the chest stabbing problem with hugs.

(Also what the heck does Glasses Gardevoir mean by "Now she's got you doing it too"?)

I think that part would have been clearer if the laugh track had been placed above Glasses Gardevoir's speech bubble.

scout,thats what i thought too xD then I saw it was her heels
scumbag scout (Guest) edit delete reply
I think wilco got a chest buster,and those tentacle things are his organs,just sayin
TheMightyBox edit delete reply
TheMightyBox
I think you're looking at White Mage's heels there.
Unless there's another tentacle thing I'm not seeing.
GigaNerd17 edit delete reply
GigaNerd17
That... would have been a hilarious alternate punchline. o_o
scumbag scout (Guest) edit delete reply

but maybe he got shot by a rampant steve(see the animal crossing comic)
scumbag scout (Guest) edit delete reply

I'm still saying he's missing his arms.
You can see blood spurting out of one of his shoulders.

eman sdrowkcab (Guest) edit delete reply
i still want to see it as sherogorath laughing because she had to deal with the dragon born (even if it was a guest comic)

Ya know, this kinda reminds me of that piece of Pokemon fan art where Gardevoir hugged her or his (either gender can be a Gardevoir) trainer and impaled him. Hehe, I guess.
