This one was terrible... It took my forever to write (seems to be my theme lately), and when it came down to it, I didn't even like the joke very much... Jist is - They didn't find any sign of Sylene and the Phantom.

So, sorry for this, I literally spent several hours trying to figure something better out, and I failed to do so. It just wasn't a good creative week, I guess...

Anyway, we'll see you on Monday with something better. Have a great weekend, everyone!

I dunno, I'm always up for a good Mario joke, and Toad is my favorite character.

I think he's... jumping to conclusions.

Heh... he should've put on a pair of sunglassess on the last panel.
The joke is anyway better than most of those that Horatio made.

greetings from london! i got a chuckle out of the joke, and the art is great, june, you need to stop being so hard on yourself! you're a great artist!! and james, you're a great writer. the joke this time was good, somehow i expected it, but still worth it.

A classic gaming reference now and then never goes amiss. :)

Don't beat yourself up over the artwork, or the story telling, both deserve praise!

I for one wouldn't come back every day and vote, and leave annoying comments, if I didn't like the strip.

As always keep it up!

@Kevin - It wasn't a good Mario joke.. It was a poor Mario anti-joke at best :P

@Peter Palmiotti - Thank you, have a great weekend yourself :)

@MatthewJA - I don't know, I think a good Mario joke is something of a pipe dream :)

@Ryoken_Ryagnaroth - Sorry, I hated my writing :) I appreciate the support though ;)

@Sooty - You kind of knew it was coming... To be honest, I was surprised when it turned out to be legit.. ;)

@Guest - If you want good Horatio style jokes, I think Good Sir, I Cannot Draw or hOkum are good choices :)

@model S - London, England? Hope you're having a good time!

@ArchangelM127 - Yeah, it's like a crutch though... :/

@T.Gatto - Well, you can still be supportive of the comic in general, even if the particular strip sucked... I love the Wheel of Time series, but I think that book 10 is a horrible, grotesque abomination of words... :)

@aok666 - That's okay, there wasn't much of a joke anyway..

@Darkond2100 - Yeah... It was still bad :) I can see why he didn't get it.

I'm sure I recognise that hat from some other comic... Hmm...

@Magravan, re: "I can see why he didn't get it"... what made you think I'm a "he"? ;-)

For some reason, Mags presumes everyone on the internet is a he. I'm not sure why :D Please forguve his ignorance :D

I blame MMOs :D
aok666 (Guest) edit delete reply
@Magravan: how could MMOs be to blame? (I'm not totally sure what MMO stands for exactly, though I know what MMORPGs are... vaguely)
Magravan edit delete reply
Massively Multiplayer Online (RPG, FPS, whatever) Basically a place where a bunch of people get together online for a game.. and the reason that it is to blame is because it is stereotypical that all girls on MMOs are guys pretending... Obviously this isn't true, because June played on one, but it is also not completely untrue ;)

I've seen people that I know to be guys pretend to be girls, because they get free stuff :P

Ah, thank you! That knowledge will probably come in handy one day... can't think how just yet, but unexpected things happen a lot!
Magravan edit delete reply
That's what we're here for... Useless information that will probably never come up... maybe :D
