That was pretty awesome Dixie. =) How long did the comic take you to draw?

Between the planning, the rough sketches and the good copy sketches as well as the computer work, this comic took me a few weeks to make. I think the colouring and shading took the most time.

No doubt, it looks great though. Shading is something I will likely never grasp properly. Im a pretty bad artist. ;)

The characters took the most time to colour and shade, especially the hair. The backgrounds I didn't bother to shade since it would have taken too much time. I prefer to colour by hand since it gives it a more unique style, and I really don't know how to colour and shade well on the computer. This really isn't my best artwork, but as I mentioned in my post, I  have a hard time with drawing people, even cartoon ones.

You should congratulate me. I destroyed the vile red falcon and saved the universe. I consider myself a hero.

This comic would be perfect for the TV Trope page "It Will Never Catch On". Can I crop part of the comic and use it as the picture there?



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

omg, that's so great! way to go DixieKong!!! congrats!

I prefer that one.


i can't stand that one >_< you see this really annoying member always used to use it. that reminds me, haven't seen him in a while :D

and besides, mine is a nice big grin (which is what i was going for), yours is some kind of weird moving teeth laugh

I wonder who that might be actually. I know I used it quite a lot... so if you're talking about me, how am I annoying? Haha!

I'm seriously trying to cut back on smiley usage though.


it's NOT you! lol :p  it's nobody in this thread. in fact, he hasn't showed up in a long time (i wonder what happened, lol).... bah! forget about him, the comic is really cool and it got feature on gonintendo!! that's wonderful! :D

and btw, don't stop using smilies, they're awesome!

super funny, but I still don't understand why people are so angered by pachter.He obviously has some good insight otherwise people wouldn't spend lots of time finding creative ways to criticise him.



Haha... I'll chime in with the choir- great work, and keep it up! Also, please keep us informed on when you get more done. No rush; I saw you said you do them by hand, but they are fantastic!

Reactions do not prove insight one way or the other. And the criticisms are of the things he objectively got wrong, so that claim of yours is already false.

Haha I enjoyed that, nicely done..

Patcher kinda looks like the Angry Nintendo Nerd 0_o

I guess he kinda IS one...



BRILLIANT comic strip and funny too. You are very talented.
