My god, how many sprite comics out there have done this comic, nearly verbatim? The Author character shows up, introduces himself, followed by a self-deprecating joke. Even now, I've seen it done so many times, I cringe a little when I read it in my own comic. But, I suppose there's nothing really to be done about it. If I'm not going to alter the comics to add a couple of pixels, I'm not going to alter the text in what is almost certainly a prime example of what not to do in a sprite comic.

In my defense, there wasn't a spriting community around yet to tell me not to do these things. Besides, most of the things you're not supposed to do in a sprite comic are there because I did them first and everyone got tired of others doing exactly the same things.

As you might have noticed by this point, the rest of the cast wasn't terribly pleased about being in the comic. At this point, the sprite comic was still supposed to be filler, so it was supposed to be an inconvenience to the Megaman characters to be forced into acting out these scenes. This running theme eventually disappeared when it became apparent that they were in it for the long haul and it made no sense to bitch about it anymore. You see? Some dead horses do stay dead.

By the way, if God showed up and introduced Himself, I really think someone should bring up his responsibility for the mess the planet is in. Unless someone already did, and then God erased him from existence, in which case no one would ever remember him, so we'd never know what he did. So, on second thought, maybe pointing out flaws in God's creation is a bad idea.
