This one took a tiny bit longer than I wanted, nearly 2 days just to color it! The guy playing the part of Captain N is actually me, that's how I draw myself in my comics. That's also how I dress when I'm playing games by myself (at least it was in august when I started this comic) The original captain N was wearing a letter jacket and turtleneck sweater when he got pulled into video world, but that never made sense to me, especially if he was playing those frustrating arcade style '80s games, unless it was like 40 degrees in his room or something. I do another little comic on deviant art featuring myself and my friends in more ordinary situations, if you wanna see the misadventures of...well me, check it out here http://wakeangel2001.deviantart.com/ (I also do a bunch of video game fanart of course.)

Metal Maverick wanted to make a Captain N the second generation called "Gamer Elite." He canceled the flash series a few years ago because it was too much work. I'm actually glad where it was left off, if he didn't Cloud Strife would have been introduced and I loath that entire series.

I've always seen Bomberman similar to Mario or Link, as in very minimal speech. Still, he's one of my favorite characters in the gaming world, especially "Bomberman 64: the Second Attack."

This story has potential I think, but I really do recommend to at least have a "major plot line to do list" For example in Paper Mario. Princess makes an awesome party, Bowser has his wishes granted by the Star Rod. Mario hunts for the 7 stars. Mario find the first here, he saves the star from so-and-so. He hunts the second (Repeat until 7). Mario finds Bowser and with the star's help he gets rid of Bowser. End. It doesn't have to be a very detailed description but it helps out with getting rid of plot holes, adds self motivation, and stops you from getting off task.

I loved Metal Maverick's series, there is also a subcomic on Bob and George called "Captain Gamer" which is essentially the same thing. My plan for this comic's long term storyline is mostly episodic, with each "episode" taking the characters into a different game world to stop the big bad's evil plots. Of course my plots will be more involved than the cartoons, did you know in one episode the Eggplant Wizard and King Hippo worked the entire time to free Ganon from his seal, and when he finally was Kevin and Link defeated him in under a minute? That was a lot of build up for a disappointing final fight.

Sounds like a disappointment indeed, but then again do you know how hard it is to animate fighting? Do you know how hard it is to animate talking? There is a big difference!

I suppose, but I've seen amateurs with flash animate longer and more involved battle sequences by themselves, the guys who did the cartoon were professionals, AND they had a studio budget and a whole team of animators working on it.

Yes that's true, I've seen some great fighting scenes in flash. But what was the consequence in that? Many weeks in work at least. Also you got to consider an animator with a team has to produce around 20 episodes a season, and every hour each team member works they need to be paid around $30k a year. If you got five animators that's $150k out of someone's pocket. The faster each show can be produced the cheaper it costs to make. Cartoons are usually around 22 minutes because they need time for commercials so some advanced plot lines might also need to cut out some of the action. Sacrifices must be made in everything we do I'm afraid.

I get what your staying, Ganon really shouldn't have been cheated out of a fight, but I'm sure the writers had a reason to not draw a fight.

would it be so hard to make a cliffhanger and give a fight the next episode?
