Aw, now I feel bad for The Choker. He's like The Little Throttler Who Couldn't.
I still laugh whenever I see that Boxing Glove knife...
It's weird seeing Missy talk to Ric. I don't remember seeing that before.
I want the super power of being judgmental. My name would be... Judge-Mental.
Why does Rocket Hat always look like he's handcuffed? Why does Omnipresent Man look like his ass is on backwards?
LOL @ "The Choker"
The Choker! Hilarious on many levels! Even in some other universes!
forgive me for just noticing it, but is that a google maps location indicator on your costume, Omnipresent Man? classic!
also, is that a shadow of the position indicator, as though it were floating in a 3rd dimension above your chest?
So she's tried to satisfy him, eh?
Why is Omnipresent man not present in panel two?
The second panel dialogue is fantastic. If only all superheroes were as motivated for results!
*dingaling* Haha, that's fantastic =P 'Featuring Rocket Hat and special guest Omnipresent Man'.
This is a classic strip right out of the gate ... but I wanted to refresh my memory, so I dug up the original Knifeketeer strip (http://basicinstructions.net/basic-instructions/2010/1/24/how-to-accept-creative-input-from-a-friend.html) and when I was reminded what that thing is that he's holding, I laughed all over again.
Did not see the choking joke coming, very nice
Ooh, "The Choker." Best ineffectual villian since Moist from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog!
"The Judger Presents The Legion of Super Heroes Starring Rocket Man with Special Guest Omnipresent Man" should be a new ongoing strip! Although twice as many strips by you every week might be more hilarity than the average person can take without losing a sanity point here and there.
This one had me laughing from Panel One. If I were a villian, I wouldn't want to go against any of the Legion of Super Heroes, their presenter, or especially, the Human Joke- uh I mean Knifeketeer.
Panel 3 is amazing, hahahaha.
The Choker was actually one of Chickenman's arch-nemeses in the 1960s radio program.
"Ass is on backwards"...I re-read the comic after that comment and now it is even more funny.
How do you "screw up" choking someone at the last second? I can't stop laughing its SO stupid! BTW, the judger is my favorite incarnation of Missy!
I like that the Knifeketeer appears to have a knife sticking out of his back.
ummm, I'm feeling bit excluded here. .... Still feeling excluded.
Looking forward to "Knifeketeer: The Motion Picture." Starring Seth Rogen.
I don't know how I feel about the Knifeketeer having taken a life. Makes me see him in a whole new light. A very dark light.
What is rocket man's super power, is he just like Batman only having the power of being the ultimate badass?
Off-topic, but ...
I just got my copy of Made With 90% Recycled Art and I've been laughing my intestines out. But I was really struck by the foreword, by Scott's wife Missy. As I read through it, I kept waiting for the inevitable bitiing joke at Scott's expense, only to find that there wasn't one: the foreword is just plain eulogistic. I found that really touching: Scott's wife both loves and respects him -- that's pretty awesome!
whatever happened to el destructo?
I don't know if you take suggestions, or what the best way to contact you with one is, but I just sat up at night with the thought "How to Pick a New Pet" and I decided I'd be upset with myself if I didn't mention it.
Shouldn't Omnipresent Man be in the third frame?
My favorite superhero group of all time was the Naked Justice Squad.
Why is Rocket-Hat's left hand so tiny?
Or does he not like to talk about it?
THE DETAILS AREN'T IMPORTANT!
"You're included. That is what 'and' means."
The choker was a masterpiece. The pun on being ineffectual was pretty bad (So since it is a pun, this means good), however I soon realized it was also a play on the joker and couldn't stop laughing/ groaning. Beautiful double pun
