Today’s Comic: “A special kind of problem”

About this comic

This one was fun mostly just on a visual level for me. And as much as I like the occasional Mario comic, as you may well know, today it was mostly about putting the poor little plumber on top of a huge koopa. And so it goes.

    I think we all have days where they seem that big. 😉 Clever one Scott.

    Oh my god, how much mushroom will he have to eat to get rid of that one O_O

    By the way, some say that clouds are in the sky and so they would not be in front of the landscape but you know… It’s just a saying ;p

    Aargh… you missed a possible last frame…

    The turtle is standing on top on another turtle…

    What if the background extends high enough into the sky could the clouds not be in front of the land scape then? Like the effect you get with mountains? Just a thought.

    I pictured further frames showing him jumping up and down and then the koopa turns to look up at him. Mario then beats a hasty retreat into the sunset or down a drainpipe.

    Giant World from Mario 3?

  9. I think he’s going to need bigger boots.

  10. Scott says:

    @OsK: You forget that Mario gets to jump on most of the clouds in the game. They are on his plane for that reason. 🙂

    Reminds me of a quote from Stephen King’s Dark Tower series

    “See the tortoise of enormous girth.
    On his shell, he holds the Earth”

      Dearest Eliane, Thanks for all your blogs, pics and music. I have enjoyed them all so much and will miss your epeasadcs with the rod, the Alvis and all the wonderful people you have met along the way. It has been great so if you have more adventures I would love to hear about them! Carol (& Douglas) xxx Lots of love to Alice too.

    I think eating the mushrooms caused it.

    “Mario? What does this blue mushroom do?”

    “I don’t know, Luigi. Let’s find out!”

    Hey! Mario got a Turtle mount! Gratz!

    Mario! You’re on Morla from The Neverending story! He’s allergic!!

    Where’s Atreyu when you need him?!

    @Iamabanana you beat me to it. BANGO SKANK LIVES!

    @lamabanana, that quote sounds like the premise for a series of humoristic novels… 🙂 The world on the back of a ginormous turtle. Add a few elephants just for kicks… and make the world as flat as a pancake. And you have comedy gold! 🙂

  18. Davad says:


    Hmmm…..that does sound like a great idea. Just watch out for dropbears.
