The saga of The Last Mystical Legend of the Fantastic Fantasy Trigger Star continues...

BONUS DIRECTOR'S COMMENTARY

-Whenever we pitch the Trigger Star series to potential readers we describe it as follows "Our hero is avenging his torched porn stash with the best supporting cast he can rent...for about 8 bucks." This strip is to thank for it.

-For the redux, I almost wanted to remove the "80s References: Buy One, Get One Free" from the background because, looking at it now, it distracts quite a bit from the foreground characters. However, it got such an enthusiastic response when we first posted this strip that I'd feel bad if I changed it now. Thus, I swallow my artistic pride.

--The original comic was done April 21 2006 Words, Pencils & Color by Me, Inks by Roxane

Keep in mind that this is the guy who not only turned down free help, he left them to a grisly fate that other people might feel guilty about.  Not our hero, though, he's special like that

What kind of shop-owner is that?! He reminds me of the shop-owner in Twilight Princess before it was turned into this... Mart when you get enough money to fix the bridge and brings the prices down. You choose an item and he would say, "That would be [insert insane amount here], GOT IT?" I was like, "WHAT A RIPOFF." XD

Actually, till you pointed it out, I didn't even see the sign in the BG... I was too busy paying attention to the foreground. As long as the background stays semi-faded, I think it works.

I actually didn't notice the sign in the background until I read the artist's comments. So, I don't think it's a problem at all. And looking at it again, I rather like it. =]

Personally, I think that if you subdue the 80s references like you did in the last panel, the joke would still be there and it wouldn't detract from the action going on between the characters as much.

These are awesome, and I don't think the 80s reference poster in the background is distracting enough to need to be removed. Also, I just noticed that you didn't change the currencies on this one, instead them as dollars and bucks. Did I hallucinate you editing them in one of the previous comics, is there a reason for this, or am I being a nitpicky douche? o3o

I personally really like the 80's references. The colors are muted enough that it doesn't distract from scene, but at the same time it adds an extra joke to the page. Plus makes what would be an otherwise plain background interesting. I may be easily pleased, but it brought a smile to my face.
