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.

and the thing is, it keeps getting better, both in the art and in the writing. It's a joy to watch an artist continuing to push herself while having a ridiculously good time.

We need a name for this phenomenon. Allison Syndrome?

Gigi has one of the most amazing senses for color theory I've ever seen in a webcomicker. Like, her understanding of color and how to use it, all without any linework to be seen anywhere, is hella.

Seriously, this, so much. The entire Noisemaster chapter is proof of this, it was just great.

Looks like Cuco suddenly has a Noisemaster wand, I guess that's another perk to defeating each Disaster Master, new gear!

I thought it was just the orbs merging with the wand he "borrowed" from Peridot. Either way, new spells yay!

I'm only now really digging into Cucumber Quest, and I'm kicking myself for not reading it all sooner. I'm about halfway through, and every single page has been a joy to look at.

Wow, Nautilus upgraded. I'm starting to feel like I'm one of the last people in existence to still have a flip phone, real or fictional.

Is Cucumber talking about who it looks like he's talking about?

Looks like it! It'd be nice if the protagonist really actually caught on this early in the story...

1) This isn't Final Fantasy.
2) The only person we've seen that could build an airship is...well.
