Sorry it's taken me SOOO long to get another comicstrip done! I based the gang of bugbears on characters that I really like. See if you can guess who they are. I will post a character key in the next strip. Fred really "jumped the gun" by using his sword beam. If you're wondering why he's not glowing any more, it's because the sword beam drains him of his other ablilities(except speech which is unfortunate for Blueburt). The little green man is my tribute to Wally Wood's Snorky from Sally Forth. The second panel is my homage to another one of my fav games...Super Mario Bros. Blueburt is in desperate need of some help at this point...will anyone come to his rescue??? Check back in a few for the answer to this question. Thanks for reading.
