If there's one thing I'm inordinately proud of when it comes to the comic, it's that I can make a comic and update while drunk off my ass. It's true! I can't count the number of times I've gotten totally drunk, three sheets to the wind, and have gotten the whole site updated without a hitch. I've also been known to hang out in the chat room and make a total ass of myself, but Liss frowns on that these days.
I mention that because, if you think about it, you'll realize that this is the comic that went up the day after my birthday, which means I had to make it and update the site the night of my birthday, and if you read the previous commentary, you'd know I was pretty drunk that night. The first of many.
Anyway, this comic also brings to mind one of the great tricks to learn in making sprite comics. You see, as a naturally limiting medium, it can be extremely difficult to get the comic to look exactly the way you want. One way around that is to only use part of a sprite, with the rest hiding off panel. As I've bemoaned several times before, Mega Man doesn't have a good sprite of him laying down. So, in the last panel, I approximated the pose by only showing his legs. In fact, I used this same trick earlier, when Dr. Light was killed; since Dr. Light didn't have a sprite that completely accommodated the script, I only showed his lower body and left the rest of the sprite to the reader's imagination.
