I took a peak at it when it first came out but aside from the art I didn't get the appeal. It seemed such a departure from GigiDG's game cartoons and didn't seem to have any bite. I donno. It just didn't capture me. I guess I'm a big dummy stupid poop because I started to read it a month or so ago and it's just so charming! I hadn't realized GigiDG was making Paper Mario 3.

Funny; I connected it to the Mother series before the Paper Mario series.

But then, those textboxes are probably what caused me to go there first.

My modus operandi when it comes to this comic has been to let it stew for a couple months and then binge it at once. That way I get the characterization all at once -- after all, this comic is about the characters above all else, and if you just get little glimpses of the characters a few times a week, it can be tough to see the big picture.

Am I making a mistake here?

Gigi posted a thing on her tumblr asking for voice auditions reading parts from Count Legato for "an upcoming project." ~Mysterious!~

So, I've seen these Peridot facts before (as mentioned, they were on Gigi's tumblr), but holy hell, color makes them a billion times better.

I especially like, in the second one, how most of the panels are all done in one color, except Peridot in the last panel is still green while everything else is Nightmare Purple.

Have you browsed her tumblr? There's a million awesome sketches and costume pieces and generally amazing pieces of gigi art. Also a lot of Q&A with story hints and teasers.

Apparently she got understandably fed up with Tumblr's shitty call out culture a while ago, so she probably won't be posting new content there any time soon.

Oh man, this has been a soap opera of a chapter (complete with mild amnesia!)

(Also, fuck you if you don't like at least the occasional soap opera story)

Well, and how many JRPGs have the guy/gal who only works for the villains for their sob reason? Even if Cosmo IS the Knight, it's pretty clear he's not the real villain of the piece at this point anyway.

That's...interesting. True, Cosmo's color scheme is the same as the Nightmare Knight's, and regardless of his their contraptions' failures, they did manage to set the heroes on the path they needed to be. He was They were also able to identify Glitchmaster's approach before she got there.

An interesting theory, at the very least.

We have seen a Nightmare Knight doppelganger, why could we not also see a Cosmo doppelganger?
