She has her father’s eyes! ^_^
We are all doomed. It is only a matter of time.
They’re going to have to have her grow up in a permanent state of semidrunkeness just so she’s presentable in polite company.
Though not too drunk. The upside to having a Mike-like kid would be far less annoying normal-kid-ness. A constant background level of assholery is somewhat preferable to all the running around screaming and pulling all the toilet paper off the roll.
…though actually she’d probably still do the toilet paper thing, just to piss people off.
This might actually be easy if she grows up to be one of the people (like me) that’s able to get tippsy after drink too much apple juice.
And no, it’s not odd. Fructose is one of the heavier sugars and can have a depressant affect in high quantities, just like alcohol
She has inherited the dark powers of her father. THE END TIMES ARE NIGH!
Donna’s face… is adorable yet leaves me with concern for my, and every non-Warner’s well being.
I’m more concerned about Donna’s well-being. She doesn’t have much of a forehead and her cranium is lacking. That can’t be healthy.
Donna is already scowling.
*snaps fingers* I got it! Donna grows up to be Helga Pataki.
Dear god, please no.
But then it would all come together with Ethan and Robin’s happy drunk time baby being Arnold!
Dear god, no I’ve done it!
Minor point, but is Amber’s hair getting longer?
I noticed that too.
I wonder if there’s an Ethan grayness to amber hair length ratio.
…I must ask. Grayness, or gayness?
his hair is graying, ya silly.
She has to keep it shoulder length or shorter, or else he starts coming into work wearing nothing but assless chaps and glitter.
If I had read this ten seconds earlier I would have sprayed coffee out my nose, possibly ruining my phone.
ALL CHAPS ARE ASS-LESS! Non-assless chaps are just leather pants!
“Assless chaps” just means wearing chaps without pants under them.
But then you still have an ass, and it is plainly visible to all present.
I met an assless chap once. He sure didn’t have any ass.
It just doesn’t have the same effect if you don’t point out the assless-ness though.
I guess reproducin’ doesn’t leave you with much time to get haircuts.
I assumed she’d grown it out to look less like Faz. Anyone remember that comic?
Dear god, whyyyyyy did you have to remind us
Donna has Mike eyebrows? YAY!
..Donna has Mike’s scowl.
This bodes ill.
I read that as “Mike’s soul” at first.
Though that might explain what happened to it.
Donna is a rebirth of mike…that the undead mike set into existence…
My experience with feeding babies that age is they look very serious until the sleepies strike. ( Not to be confused with the Soggies )
Which may or may not rule.
That sounds about right to me. Even some happy babies I’ve met looked like they were scowling alot
Donna’s eyes seems to tell me that she screwed your mom for a nickel or something to that effect.
She squints at Mike, Clint Eastwood style, and growls between her clinched, non-existant teeth: I made my way through your wife’s vagina with my bare hands.
It’s halftime in America, and I just fucked your wife for a nickel.
…This is just another Ducktales game starring Scrooge McDuck. GOOOLD! GOOOOOOLD! GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLD
The Ducktales NES game was awesome. I’d love to see a 3DS remake come out.
Of course, that show hasn’t been on the air for 20 years, so I sincerely doubt anyone at Capcom thinks there’s an audience for it.
Damn kids with your…not Ducktales.
That game was awesome. I haven’t thought about it in years. I wonder if I still have my copy?
I used to play the shit out of that and Little Nemo: Adventures in slumberland.
That is why God invented emulators.
I would have compared him to Ron Paul, but rescuing princesses isn’t in the Constitution, so I doubt he’d do that.
yeah you cant make a joke about gold without Ron Paul these days
(not being sarcastic)
Hah, she’s got the scowl!
Donna does not approve of being compared to Glenn Beck.
Donna: I’ll remember that when you’re wiping my ass.
This game is actually Mario working his way out of phenomenal debt he’s accumulated.
Did the Mushroom Kingdom finally decide that all the bricks he destroys constitute Property Damage, and sue him?
“Yes, Mr. Mario, this court understands that these actions were performed in the course of rescuing the princess once again. However, we do not see how acquiring this ‘Tanooki Suit’ was necessary to perform that task. You barely even turned into a statue, and there was a Toad’s House right down the street where you could have legally acquired a Leaf.”
“while we are on the subject, we feel the need to point out your consumption of mushrooms makes us toads incredibly uncomfortable. What you’re doing is considered a hate crime”
Also murder. Remember the Koopalings trapped mushroom Kingdom’s citizens in them a long time ago. The story is they give you items and coins for freeing them. Or something.
“Ahem. That’s ‘Doctor’ Mario. I didn’t throw all those pills at squirming bugs trapped in bottles to be called ‘Mr.’”
Hey, the game’s got the Koopalings in it, can’t be bad!
Wow wait, they brought back the Koopalings? I thought they’d retconned them out of existence in favor of Bowser Jr.
In NSMB Wii there are both the Koopalings and Bowser Jr. Do not under any circumstances think about them too hard.
But then one of the Koopalings is already Morton Koopa, Junior, so are there two…ARGH BRAIN SPRAIN
Mikes eyes, the kid has Mike’s eyes and scowl. As someone so well stated..”this bodes ill…” or maybe not..”boding interesting maybe?”
Furious baby is furious.
Ugh. It’s not really my business what Willis puts in his webcomic on his website, but I prefer the story arcs (or even the toy news I don’t really understand) over his political comics. If he had to do them, I wish he’d at least support people he likes instead of antagonizing people he hates.
Dear diary: Today I learned that this comic was about politics?
Hahaha. But seriously, it’s pretty variable. It’s not like you only ever do politics comics forever, which is probably why I still follow this. I dunno, I just thought I’d voice my opinion in case you kept track of these kinds of things.
If this is political, I fail to see it. It pokes fun at Beck for his… lets say fondness for gold and the fact that he’s cried on ocassion on TV. Neither of which has anything to do with his politics.
“This comic” = “today’s comic.” I’m wondering what political topic you thought was addressed.
Sorry, I guess it’s not technically political. This just seems like the kind of comic that I lump together with political ones. I like some of your political comics, too, but usually only the ones where you talk about an issuse without using strawman and not antagonizing the side you oppose.
That’s not to say people never antagonize their opponents, and everyone getting along makes for a boring comic. It just seems like it could be done in a better way somehow.
Glenn Beck = a public figure. He’s a celebrity, paid to endorse things and prone to over-the-top behavior and emotional outbursts. This is a pretty harmless joke based only on his personality, and I think anyone not familiar with the author’s political views would see no ulterior motive.
I never claimed it had any kind of motive or political statement. I just don’t like comics where there’s nothing but antagonizing one person. Sure, it’s harmless, but it’s not in good spirits, either.
True and while this strip is funny I think it would be more relevant if Beck still had his show on Fox. Of course they didn’t have an available baby to compare him to so better late than never using him as a punchline.
Just because the comic makes a joke about Glenn Beck doesn’t mean it’s anti Glenn Beck. Maybe Willis finds the crying and goldmongering endearing.
he is my waifu
There’s more to this comic than antagonizing one person. There’s also angry Donna eyes!
so are we still okay with comics that only antagonize Batman?
–Dave, holy incredibly specific denial
…Okay, imagine TWICE the amount of imaginary people who have a problem with this comic man.
i have a problem with this comic man!
no i don’t i don’t care what his politics are, and this is just poking fun at beck’s fondness for gold, don’t get all butthurt because someone of your political denomination got poked a bit
Are you kidding me? I just said that I don’t prefer these kind of comics. That’s all. I’m not yelling at Willis or even voicing my political opinion, just my opinion as a reader.
I know you didn’t mean to, but you just hit a hornet nest. Plenty of people have been unhappy with the way Willis “swings” politically, and even mentioning it sets people off. It’s not a safe road to start, and it doesn’t get any better if you try to continue.
Plus – and I’m trying to make a general statement here, not be mean – people are going to reply to voiced opinions. You’re doing it to Willis, and others are doing it to you.
Personally, I don’t like politics – but I can stomach them in small doses. That and I had zoned out because I’ve heard a speech similar to Amber’s elsewhere. I figured the punchline was Donna’s eyebrows }=(
Yes! He just lost Gleen Beck – who up till now was a dedicated reader.
I followed the Glenn Beck link. This is the only comic about him. That is far from antaganizing. The anoining guy from GhostBusters had more jokes about him. As far as being too politcal and leaning one way need I remind you Reagan was a reacurring charater that examplified wisdom.
Something doesn’t have to be repeated to be antagonizing, and it’s pretty clear from the character’s reactions that being compared is a horrible thing. ANYWAY, my whole point is that I don’t prefer these kinds of comics. I don’t really care if he’s ragging on Obama or Beck or whoever. I just made an opinion saying I like his other comics more. Why does that make people gang up on me?
Because there’s an automatic connotation that expect something to be done about that fact (ie, Willis must make only the comics you like, not the ones you don’t), even if that isn’t what you actually meant. People also don’t generally take well to criticism, and your particular brand of it is mostly self-serving (again, make the comics you want) not actually constructive.
Except the very first thing I said was that he’s obviously welcome to do whatever he wants with his comic. The rest of it was an expression of my preferences when it comes to his comics. Obviously everyone else’s comment arguing against mine makes that pointless.
I’m sure that Willis is exceptionally glad to have your permission, O Ye Sainted Guardian of the Internet.
Seriously, though… poke a badger, expect it to turn around and attack your face. Say “I don’t like political comics” to someone who’s been burned previously in such a manner, and expect the loyal fans to come out in his defense.
And yea, saying “Oh, no, I mean, I don’t have a problem with it, he can do whatever he wants” is the lamest and most cliche of “Oops, I stepped in it, time to play nice” covers.
Just apologize (if you mean it!) and go about your business. That’s the best approach from here…
@Mychyl @Coru Dude, the not now guy isn’t covering up. Read his original comment. He only said he prefers storyline comics. I also prefer storyline comics. Mostly because I don’t care about toys or politics. The point isn’t to tell Willis what he can or can’t do. It’s to show him what a certain sector of his audience likes. As a businessman, who makes money off of his comics, he can choose to pander to different segments as he so pleases. The WHOLE POINT of commenting is to say, as “Not Now,” did, what we like and don’t like.
What will, in otherwords, bring in readership like us, and make clicks, and make money.
Hey, Willis! I like storyline! I don’t like Toys! I don’t like Politics!
Willis can then count up the number of people who like toys/politics/storyline, and compare what makes him more money/views/etc. No one’s telling him what the hell to write or not to write. People are just saying what they prefer so he knows. At least one or two commenters are here for the story.
Why the hell should someone apologize for that?
I don’t like political comments. So shoot me. I’m still gonna keep reading for the storyline.
There. I said it. It’s not an attack, it’s an explanation of what I like from this comic and what I don’t like.
@NotNow You can hang out with me if you like! XD We can talk about storyline all day. Because I am almost straight for Mike.
oh god, mike’s child has mike’s eyes
the spawn of satan hath been summoned
Donna looks like her Daddy!!! <3
Clearly our li’l Warner-spawn had time to refine her scowl while waiting for that bus. Maybe Aslan taught her, and that’s why it took so long? He always seems kinda frowny in this comic.
How old is Donna at this point?
I’m having the most bizarre flashback that I’ve read a strip about her playing a Super Mario DS game before.
Although I’m sure my head is just spinning because I finished the Its Walky! archive and I’m positive I understood at LEAST half of it. It was amazing and yet I feel rather overwhelmed somewhere. I’m not even sure what part I’m confused by anymore. I stopped reading when I noticed I hit Joyce and Walky because I wanted to buy it all before I started..is there a transition from that Head Alien “I’m from the future” thing in the epilogue yet? Because that was the most tantalizingly not concluding epilogue ever.
Congrats on surviving the archive and welcome Now get caught up on Dumbing of Age also.
She did play New Super Mario Bros. on the DS before. This is the “sequel”.
Awww, the baby has Mike’s eyes and brows
I don’t know the reference which kills it for me (because I’m Australian and don’t care about US politics). I do like Mario and evil looking little cutey Donna though!
As an American, my advice to you is to take it as a very acceptable tradeoff.
Donna’s too much like her father to cry…she only acts like she’s crying, to manipulate her caregivers and show them who’s boss.
I don’t see Donna as the type who would cry. She’d more likely give a little cough(I’m assuming a baby’s cough is better at putting parents at panic mode), then give a Mike glare when the gullible caregiver finally gives attention, showing them who’s boss…
I thought about Donna in a few short “years”, and my mind immediately went to “Peaches, Queen of the Universe”: http://www.eyebeam.com/Queen1990/index.php?num=4
Occupy Mushroom Kingdom!
I look forward to the comic a few years from now when Donna starts inflicting some sick burns at her parent’s expense.
Aren’t all Super Mario Bros. games obsessed with gold? Gold coin collecting started with the original NES game, and it only continued from there. Granted it has increased a lot in the following games but it’s definitely not a new thing.
that’s like comparing the amount of male my little pony fans from the 80s to now.
I was going to launch into some explanation about stuff, but then I remembered that even as early as Super Mario 64 getting tons of coins was necessary for actually completing the game (the 100 coin bonus star in each level). Also the red coin stars in the same game, as well as getting 100% level completion in Yoshi’s Island.
So yeah, basically they are just taking things to the next level with NSMB2.
Awww she has Mike’s eyes!
I know this is off topic now since their storyline seems to have ended for the time being, but has anyone ever noticed any similarities between Galasso and conquest with a certain “immortal” Batman villain and his daughter?
No, I’m pretty sure even if there is it’s a coincidence.
We’re talking about David Willis here, I wouldn’t be surprised if there was.
We’re both being sarcastic right?
I have no clue.
To clarify I assumed you were being sarcastic with your first post so I was with mine. If you weren’t being sarcastic I apologize and can only off that the fact that Galasso and Conquests relationship is exactly modeled on the aforementioned immortal and daughter is correct.
I’m from Holland, isn’t that Vierd??
Schmoke und a pancake? Bong und a blintz?
As said by others, but keeping in the spirit of the gag “She haz her fahzher’s eyeeeeessssh!” Lol!
Hm, I’m wondering… Is she just not punching him because he’s feeding her or because she doesn’t have the motor control yet? The scowl she has is the same one he had before he used to have before he broke somebody’s face.
Why isn’t the front page updating? I had to go to comments then push “latest” to get to this page.
Try clearing your cache?
It’s clear. this has happened on multiple comps today.
Super Keynesian Brothers.
Oh jesus the baby has his eyes
Why can I imagine Donna talking like Stormageddon, Dark Lord Of All? “Mum, not Mum, and peasants.”
It looks like the Butts Disease has spread to Japan
I’m pretty sure it came from Japan in the first place. A country that not only embraces kancho but also creates arcade games where you can jam your fingers into a prosthetic ass is a good candidate for butt disease patient zero.
Reporter-dude’s last name is “Wagstaff.” *snicker*
*AHEM* I, for one, gladly welcome our new, robotic, quivering ass overlords…
Silly Japanese scientists, they can’t even build sex toys properly.
Baby steps… baby steps…
