I consider this strip important on a few different levels. First, it's a double! You'll notice that when I do longer strips it usually happens during a more 'major' story moment, if you will. Tripp has his hero moment and, in all his excitement, forgets that fists are weapons, too. Oops!
I'm also about 50 strips ahead buffer-wise, and this is the strip that I can point back to as one that was important in determining how I was these strips to look overall.
@Doc Savage - Good recall! Kickboxing at the Y! Will Coco get involved? Will Tripp turn into the Dark Phoenix and unleash hell upon the city? Tune in Monday to find out... :)
@Francisco - If she ever does refer to him as her boyfriend, I'll definitely make a strip about it and make it definitive.
@Ultimate the Hedgehog - Thanks for the art compliment... I'm trying to improve, I swear.
If Tripp can shake the cobwebs that guy better watch out. Glad you've enjoyed the outfit, gotta switch it up soon.
@interspark - Tripp's face landed an awesome blow on his hand.
@gamekidg7 - Tripp did exactly what he set out to do. Unfortunately, he ONLY did what he set out to do. :)
@qazox - The old GI Joe reference. From the vault!
@Francisco - I was going for more of a 'Coco was about to run' pose.
@Ultimate the Hedgehog - Fear? The need to 'protect' Coco, maybe?
Let me see, Coco was into kickboxing as a workout even before she had the combat chip put into her head if I remember right. The Thug is about to discover that in 3..2..1...
I wonder if she would refer to Tripp as her boyfriend. If she did I can see Tripp being on Cloud 9 despite the sore face.
DONT WORRY TRIPP, YOU CAN STILL LIFT HIS BODY WITH YOUR MIND!
that or coco will go apeshit on him.
edit: also thank you for continuing to put coco in that outfit :3
also, your art is AMAZING in the strip.
hehehe :D tripp sure showed him!
Wait! Psychic beats fighting! DOES...NOT...COMPUTE!!! MISSINGNO!
Shoulda had the knit cap get pulled over the robber's eyes.
Now Tripp will know the next time something like this occurs, and knowing is half the battle! (GI JOE!!!!!)
Given that they seem to be behind the guy when the knife's removed, I take it it wasn't them being attacked? I also take it that Coco was trying to tell him that the guy was coming their way?
looking back... why didnt tripp halucinate an image of this guy?
