Who writes this stuff...?

BR...

The injection gun is the Cricket from Men In Black, ach. Its small, but packs one hell of a punch (and recoil).

Well, Blossom is a hero, so...unless heroes have had their families murdered in front of them, they have to crack stupid-ass jokes.

Bell, is just kinda mocking her.

I can't tell if someone brainfarted on the wording or if it's a overboard on too many plays on words.

Which makes it sad that this is all there is to say on a new page.

What Gir's saying doesn't make sense. And it's not the funny not making sense.

Sad. :'(

Does unraveling the entire fabric of reality count?

Oh goody, a Legend of Zelda reference.

As a joke or murdered families?

Because yes.

Gir's nonsensical, but Bell picks up on his general attitude enough to have a sort of conversation with him.

And about Blossom's response? Are we honestly going to ignore the some-odd hundred times the girls have exchanged banter with villains that is downright goofy?

I'm getting the words out of my system now, just like they did in the show, before a large fight, some things are said, and then they start fighting because Good Versus Evil.

Next layer of pages, almost no words, more on bleedman's part. some of it is me making sure he's drawing the right thing for the fight to make sense, but mostly him drawing neat stuff.

On this page I enjoyed how easy it was too over-goof the exchange, as is typical in the cartoon. Only here I can reference the Internet and Video Games. So... sorry *shrug* I enjoyed it.

Hell BR, as long as you enjoyed it, who cares? Sometimes we take these comics a little too seriously and forget that they are from cartoons. Goofy exchanges are something we should chuckle at a bit in them.

1.I find the play on words both funny and confusing

2.am I the only one who finds some the Men in Black related things somewhat unnecessary

Awesome, I love a well animated fight scene, I look foreword to this.
Hey, just out of curiosity, exactly how many pages are we talking about here?

Y'know, I kinda like the references. I know a lot of people probably got the "it's dangerous to go alone" one, but I wonder how many caught the "it's a secret to everyone"?

Sure, their part isn't very big in the over all story, but I wouldn't say that they're unnecessary.

Unnecessary plot I guess. :roll:

This doesn't make sense... Blossom could leave out the "WITH FORCE" part since she specifically established that she'll stop Bell by force ("Give me the bomb or I'll be forced to stop you")

And

"You are not bombing while you bomb around me." What? LOL That lost me by a lot. I don't get it.

If Blossom forced a male cow to eat her words, they'd be abominable.

As for the noisy cricket... Bell was infatuated by it earlier, so it only makes sense for continuity for her to have it and use it on Blossom. Since she probably doesn't know about the recoil, she's in for a surprise...

Before anything else, let me say that, for slipping in that "a secret to everybody" line, you win everything forever. Plus, the barrage of puns made me chuckle quite heartily.

Weirdly, I can't help but read that "I was the bomb" line as though Bell had a ghetto accent. No idea why, though.

^ This. Seriously.

I also agree that Bell probably doesn't know about the kickback / recoil on the Cricket... But what will she fly back into that a PPG can't recover from? I mean, they fly :unsure:

Actually, this could be one case being a PP (Power Person) could actually work AGAINST Bell. I am thinking of another aspect of being a PP, the near invulnerable body. That could actually make the recoil WORSE. With a normal person, the throw back will stop as soon as the person firing collides with something to stop them (like a wall) But since a PP body is so invulnerable, things that would stop a human body won't neccecarily stop it (i.e. if they are thrown agaisnt a wall with enough force, they're quite likey to go through it.) So that could work out to a much longer recoil path. Basically until she regains control of herself and arrests her own motion, her inertia could keep her going through surface after surface (think of something like when Goku in DBZ is hit by someone and goes through the walls of half a city before he finally comes to rest).

That would be priceless.

I wonder what kind of effect the Noisy Cricket will have on Blossom. I mean, will she be unaffected by it, will it simply just push her back, or does it have the potential to kill her in one hit?

I would love to see that.

I don't think such a weapon would be introduced for no reason. Either for comic relief or for successful assault. Either way, we will be either laughing or crying. Or both.

In the 3rd panel it Blossom says "or I will be forced stop you with force" shouldn't it say "or I will be forced to stop you with force"? As for the banter itself being inane, that's just apart of being a cartoon super hero, it just feels right :grin:

Well I'm gonna be a combo-breaker here and say that I thoroughly enjoy this page, for numerous reasons.

1. Confrontation between Bell and Blossom I've been waiting for since their first one towards the beginning of the comic.
2. For a while there a lot of the updates weren't really advancing the plot. But this one does - quite a bit. And that gun has me really interested, especially since it apparently has a strong kickback.
3. A panty shot was avoided where one would've been easily excusable (worm's-eye-view on Bell).
4. The redundancies (like "forced to stop you with force") seem pretty intentional to me and I thought they were funny. Reminds me of the original show when there would be ridiculously melodramatic banter that just ended up sounding ridiculous.
5. Memes & puns, gotta love 'em. :grin:

Also,

This is probably the truest statement about any webcomic I've heard in a while.
