One thing I think the comic is often known for is "breaking the fourth wall", as is done in this and the previous comic.

For those of you unfamiliar with that term, it derives from the idea that in a play, the audience can typically see the three walls of a building on stage. It's assumed that there is then a fourth wall between the actors and the audience that the audience can see through in order to watch the events unfolding on stage. So when a character in a play or television show directly addresses the audience, they're destroying the illusion of that imaginary fourth wall, hence "breaking the fourth wall".

In Bob and George, the fourth wall is broken so much, it might as well not even be there.

One interesting thing to note about this period in the comic is that I still had some spriting tricks to learn. You might notice that Mega Man's mouth in this comic is quite different from what you would see in later comics. Rather than cutting out the open mouth from another sprite and pasting it onto this one, as I would typically do with 16-bit sprites, here I just added some brown pixels to indicate an open mouth, which is usually how I handled such things with 8-bit sprites.
