I didn't want to do a filler about the Nintendo Wii or the new Zelda, "Twilight Princess." Don't get me wrong. I'm very excited about both, but I had more of a desire to do an in-story one-shot. So when Robin helped me decide to focus on Milo and E, it became a matter of picking something for them to be doing.
Why not show them playing Wii? The last line then wrote itself.
I, myself, will not be getting a Wii or Zelda on launch. It's a matter of my budget just not covering expenditures like that at this time, even with the very affordable price tag. Still, I didn't want to deprive my comic-counterpart. I look forward to owning one in the (hopefully) near future, and wish much fun to those buying one soon! When the time comes, friend codes will be shared!
Milo's comment in the first panel is a tribute to the fan comic, "The Adventures of Milo" by CrazyCow. Not saying it's "canon," but why get hung up over a silly thing like that? It was fun and I enjoy seeing others inspired by characters I helped create. [less]
Anne got this to me while I was at work yesterday so I couldn't work on it until I got home. But I got it done in time for posting! I really liked how this one came out in the end, especially the panel with Anne in the game.
Unlike Anne, I will be waiting in line outside of my local Best Buy on Sunday morning to pick up my Wii the moment it comes out. It's a good thing I've already finished Monday's comic, otherwise there's a chance it could be late. [less]
