2,000+ DC characters in Scribblenauts Unmasked
So Warner Bros. and 5th Cell announced this morning that they’re releasing a DC Comics-themed Scribblenauts game — featuring over 2,000 characters from the DC label — to 3DS, Wii U, and PC this fall.
The people you’d expect are in there: Superman, the Flash, 33 versions of Batman, 130 Green Lantern Corps. members, etc. I was really curious about whether anyone from DC’s Vertigo imprint would make it in the game, and I had a whole post here detailing how Scribblenauts Unmasked would handle those peeps, but I deleted it all because I didn’t want to get anyone in trouble! :oP
So, uh, enjoy this trailer after the break instead:
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity 4Koma
If these are your first 4komas, remember to read these from right to left! I wish more people would translated these game-themed 4komas, as they’re always great to share here. This particular pair originally appeared at Pokesho (I found them translated at The Mystery Dungeoner).
Game Boy and Fox
Two comics about the old handheld brick for your morning, the top one from Lamar Abrams and the other from Kyle Fewell. What a wonderful time we live in, when we can just wake up and have a couple Game Boy comics waiting for us.
BUY Game Boy games
"Mr McCloud’s Son" by Andrew ‘Angimoto’ Douglas
Pokébutts, a mini-comic by Lindsey Morris. The twelve-page book features full-color “drawings of pokémans with big booties!”
The book costs $5 in its standard edition, or $8 customized with your choice of hand-drawn pokébutt. I’m sure I have $8 lying around here somewhere. Now I just have to browse Bulbapedia to figure out which Pokémon’s butt is a mystery I need solved.
Buy: Pokemon Black/White Version 2, Pokemon Conquest

Two important things about the game!:
- This Saturday is Kid Icarus: Uprising Multiplayer Battle Day around the world. Still deciding if I want to let people destroy me in person.
- For those of you who traded Friend Codes with us in that secret thread, there will be a Garfield & Friends clan meeting this afternoon. We’ll post the meet-up time on our Twitter account soon.
Half a year ago, I would never have predicted that I would still be posting this much about Kid Icarus: Uprising.

"Simple" by Maré Odomo, available as an 8x8-inch print from the fine folks at Nope Clothing. I’m well aware that we post an inordinate amount of Maré art here, but I don’t care — if I could, I’d publish a piece from him every day.
"This is a comic about being a kid, and about how we treat Pokémon/animals. It’s about making fan art," he explains. Read his full post on the piece here please.
"Take Care And Tempt Not The Fates", a Dragon Warrior animated comic by Zac Gorman (click for larger image).
How many times have I explored too far off course, only to stumble upon enemies my under-leveled character had no business making eye contact with, much less crossing swords with? It’s happened to me in so many Dragon Quests, Final Fantasies, and likely a dozen other RPGs.
Even in Guadia Quest, there were a couple of moments when I accidentally ran into GameGuadias unprepared, and had my entire party’s faces rocked off.

Wii U tantrum scene by Joseph Joestar (click for a larger image). Considering how expensive the controller will likely be, you won’t want to take out your gaming frustrations on the WiiPad. Maybe just find a rolled up pair of socks or something to fling at the wall. Or scream into a pillow. These are much cheaper alternatives.
Because we’re doomed to hear awful, awful Wii U puns for the next couple of years, let’s just get them out of our system right now. So, Wii U? More like:
- Pii U
- Wii U T
- Wii Ew
- Wiiuwiiuwii Wiiuwiiuwii Wiiuwiiuwii
- Wii U No Make Real Console?
Amirite? No. I never am.

Ghost Trick comic by Dr. McNinja’s Chris Hastings (click for a larger image so you can actually read the text).
Did you know that Ghost Trick was coming out next week? I’ve been following the game intently, and the release date still sneaked up on me. And while I totally want to play it — and don’t want Capcom to delay it at all — I’m trying to save up for a 3DS over here!
Really? Ghost Trick, then Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and then Okamiden?

Bill Mudron’s excellent-looking Nintendo History System #1, a comic detailing the history of Nintendo from 1889-1970 (from the start of the company through the beginning of Gunpei Yokoi’s tenure as chief toy designer), is now available online in severely limited quantities.
If you want to learn through pretty pictures about the company’s pre-video-game workings, you might want to get over there now, before some jerk on a website tells everyone ab— oh.
[Update from Eric: Great. The damn thing is already sold out! WAY TO GO, JC.]

Letters To An Absent Father #8: Ash asks for advice on women (click for a larger image). When you’re a kid and all you could ever want in the world is for a particular girl to like you, to obsess over you as much as you do her, not having a dad around to answer these kinds of questions just makes growing up harder than it already is. What are you supposed to do ? Ask your mom? Settle for the awful suggestions offered by your dimwitted friends?
So, how do you tell if a girl likes you? If only Ash had ever bothered to watch Eddie Izzard’s stand-up act, he would know an easy way to figure it out while in a lake like this: splash water at her, and see if she splashes back. Everyone knows splashy splashy is code for sexy sexy!
