Wind Waker, Heart Breaker

RayUPDATE: Yeah, we April Fool’d you guys pretty well yesterday. Thanks for being such good sports. Well, for the most part…

To make up for it, I’m even including an alternate 3rd panel to this comic. I think I prefer it over our final decision, but that’s for you to decide.

———————————————————–

TimWhile Ray wasn’t too impressed with Nintendo’s GDC offerings, I can’t complain since the announcement of Spirit Tracks gave me the idea for this week’s comic. I was especially proud of my idea due to its timing, which was within a day of posting last week’s comic. Of course, I did pick the weekend of Ray’s big move to be early, so it didn’t help Ray much, but I still think he did a fantastic job with the artwork. Anyway, hope you enjoy!

RayI think this is the first time I strayed from clean vector lines for more of a scraggly brush look, but I think it was worth it to fit with the style of Toon Link.

    I don’t really get it.

    I mean, I know Spirit Tracks is kind of a lack luster announcement, but I don’t think the comic really reflects that. If the joke is that the image can’t load all the way because Nintendo ran out of ideas, then I think this is a lame comic overall.

    Just kidding.

    But seriously, fix it.

  2. GX Echidna says:

    That has to be the most beautiful shade of pure white that I’ve ever seen! I just wish you didn’t ruin the image with that picture thing at the top! Man, if you just fixed that little bit, it would be a masterpiece for the ages, but now it’s just some monstrous abomination of death, desperation, and debauchery.

  3. sheppy says:

    I think you all are overreacting. This is obviously a comic based around Global Warming being a myth. Think about it, he’s sailing the ocean and WHAM, you runs into a glacier. Obviously glaciers existing in this world puts to rest theories like Global Warming, Santa Clause, and Ann Coulter’s Compassion…

  4. Moonjuice says:

    Ha, now tim will be all powerful, not only can he by the world with his swimmingpool of money, but he wields the tri-force too.

  5. Tacos says:

    Meh, not my favorite. Mainly because GDC wasn’t even hyped up at all and that I’m very excited for Spirit Tracks.

  6. kingofthehut says:

    I can’t see the comic. I’ve tried multiple devices and browsers but I still can’t see it. Strange since it looks like everyone else can.

  7. Catherine says:

    I just assumed that they only put up the top of the comic because it is April Fool’s Day and they’ll put up the comic properly tomorrow.

  8. kingofthehut says:

    If this is an April Fool’s joke it’s not funny, I want my comic………

  9. dj75728 says:

    If this is an April Fool’s joke it’s not funny, I want my comic………

    Ditto. I like youtube’s thing though. Putting a whole bunch of upside down oriented videos (A cat hanging upside down etc.) and turning the videos upside down too, so everything is right side up.

    And for those of us iPhone/iTouch jailbreakers Jay Freeman (creator of Cydia which is basically the jailbreak app store) saying that Cydia has been bought out by Microsoft is absolutely hilarious to me.

  10. dj75728 says:

    You know, at first I was trying to view this comic on my iPhone and I had just assumed it wasn’t loading.

  11. Christian M says:

    Ahhhh! I think I’ve broken my refresh button! Can’t… load… the… comic… ! I know there’s no image there, but part is still waiting for it to load.

  12. Supersonic24 says:

    I’m starting to hate April 1st.

  13. Gadoink says:

    At first, when I saw the top of the comic, I assumed a real comic was loading, and was intending to comment with something like “Dude! You guys totally missed out on an April 1st comic!”

    After waiting a bit, and reading the other comments, I realized that you didn’t miss it at all =P

    We ARE getting a real comic tomorrow, right?

    Also, CURSE YOU RAY! CUURRRSEE YOOUUUUUUU

  14. Tim says:

    I’m going to try to reload it, sorry guys.

  15. CKcheeseboy says:

    I’m going to try to reload it, sorry guys.

    I’d say just linking to it in the blurb would be fine, that way people who come later can still see the joke (and not be confused by comments) but get to the comic anyway.

    I thought it was clever, but I was hoping that a link to the real comic would be somewhere.

  16. Tacos says:

    Oh, the image got bigger… just gotta wait a bit longer I guess.

  17. RedLink says:

    I’ve been buried for too long! I’m rising this week because Zelda is my favorite game, and this comic was just great! Not that I haven’t enjoyed your other comics, but Zelda=win. Anyway, NCG!

  18. GX Echidna says:

    Who else was able to find that slightly off-color pixel near the bottom? The one that links you to the alternate version of the comic. Pretty funny, though I understand why Ray hid it. I never thought I’d see that many F-bombs on 2P Start.

  19. Samutz says:

    If this is an April Fool’s joke it’s not funny, I want my comic………

    Sorry, but you must purchase the 2P Start! DLC, Wind Waker, Heart Breaker: The Prologue to view the rest of this comic.

  20. Mattalorian says:

    Comics like these are the reason I keep coming to this site. You read through the comic once, and you don’t really get it. It’s only after you read through it again that the joke finally sinks in, and when it does, you find yourself disturbing everybody in your household with laughter.
    Five stars, 2P Start.

  21. tustin says:

    You got me. And I thought the image just wasn’t loading….. 🙂

    Ditto. I like youtube’s thing though. Putting a whole bunch of upside down oriented videos (A cat hanging upside down etc.) and turning the videos upside down too, so everything is right side up.

    I like the youTube thing too! 😀
    My old video looks fresh and clean now. 😀

  22. D3vin says:

    *Tim got the triforce and Ray didn’t!*
    nice logo, but since the not much of a comic is either an error or a hoax I’ll just have to say:
    This comic USED to be good.

  23. kingofthehut says:

    I still can’t get to the comic……

  24. Loler says:

    Can I get a Wallpaper out of the second panel?

  25. Tacos says:

    OH MY GOODNESS!! I JUST GOT AN INTERNAL SERVER ERROR!! APRIL FOOLS DAY IS KILLING 2PSTART!!

  26. dj75728 says:

    So I guess the comic is gradually coming up as the day goes by?

  27. D3vin says:

    So I guess the comic is gradually coming up as the day goes by?

    Nope, it’s still half of a panel.

    I have an idea, Let’s boycott them.
    What’s a comic without its two readers?
    *boycott mode on*

  28. Narnian says:

    All I can see is Link’s grinning face…

    He’s taunting me…

  29. nintendogamer101 says:

    Come on, guys, this isn’t funny! You better put up the real comic or I’m going to . . . do . . . something . . .

    But seriously, post the real comic or I (and many of your loyal fans) will be upset.

    But I just have to say that you actually fooled me (Gawd I hope I’m not the only one). I was sitting at my computer for five minutes waiting for it to load before I realized the joke.

    Speaking of that, you two owe me five minutes of my life back!!!

    Worst. Comic. Ever.

  31. nintendogamer101 says:

    Sorry for the triple post, but I just had to write this!

    It looks like Ray got a little lazy with the comic this week. He didn’t even finish it!

    Thanks. I had to get that out of my system. I would put it all into one post, but CAN’T because we don’t have POST EDITING!!

  32. nintendogamer101 says:

    Gawd why does April 1st have to fall on a Wednesday this year?! Well at least it doesn’t fall on a Monday. I don’t want to know what you guys would do for that!

  33. NintenDood says:

    *Various Grave Rising sounds!*
    I’ve finally risen from my grave, after reading since you guys started the comic (Gosh, what was I thinking? XD) You guys rock, and uhh…
    DO A BARREL ROLL! Seriously, barrel rolling is the #1 way to stop from being exploded, you should try it whenever you run into an arch-rival with a fighter plane. 😀

  34. dj75728 says:

    Gawd why does April 1st have to fall on a Wednesday this year?! Well at least it doesn’t fall on a Monday. I don’t want to know what you guys would do for that!

    They already did it. Remember that podcast that didn’t have Tim in it? Yeah.

    And actually the picture has loaded more than it did before. This morning you could barely see part of his left eye. His mouth and right eye weren’t there.

  35. Ryman says:

    Here comes the hurricane……mwhahahahah…

    Anyway, my raise from the grave comment was suppose to come with a correction of haven’t done instead of have done….

    …anyway, the whole sega smash bros thing was what would happen if Sega made smash bros. You know, like a “screen shot” of what a character selection screen would be of it….especially since it have about 100+ characters all with the same move set. What’s the move set like? Well, it be like Kirby’s standard b attack……sucking. I was kind of playing off the “Sega Creature Creation” comic.

  36. Ryman says:

    Time for a second comment you told me to make…..

    Hi.

    J/k, though a suggestion just popped into my mind……

    …Listener submitted black doom awards.

    I would of made this on the podcast comment section, but I’m lazy.

  37. Zampo says:

    Still can’t see the image 🙁

    Would you be kind enough to post how you did it ? I love the art… Of the 30 pixels lines I’ve been able to see…

    Thanks 🙂

  38. Narnian says:

    Still can’t see the image
    Would you be kind enough to post how you did it ? I love the art… Of the 30 pixels lines I’ve been able to see…
    Thanks

    I think this may be part of some evil plot of Ray’s to make us appreciate the artwork more. I guess it’s working 😀

  39. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    Well, you tricked me. But in all honesty, the joke is more annoying than funny. However, from what I can see so far, the art looks great. And the logo’s really clever too.

  40. SuperMegaBulimicKoala says:

    I’m going to try to reload it, sorry guys.

    You know just because its April FOOLS Day doesn’t mean you have to make a bad joke.

  41. Ryman says:

    I’m going to try to reload it, sorry guys.

    You know just because its April FOOLS Day doesn’t mean you have to make a bad joke.

    I don’t think Tim would do this kind of joke….

    …I mean monotone=/=cruel…

    …But then again, he did look me over as a grave riser till I said something.

    Can’t blame Ray for that, he’s only the slave…I mean artist.

  42. roadjcat says:

    When I got on I was like “I wonder what they’re going to do for April Fools” and then I saw it and I was like “Oh nothing”. And then I scrolled down and was like “never mind”.

  43. SGYDK says:

    this is the only funny april fools joke I’ve seen all day.

    well, this and Yugioh Abridged’s…

  44. TomX says:

    Error 404: Comic not found

  45. Kyzin says:

    This may possibly be the best/worst comic ever. I’m in suspense mode.

  46. roadjcat says:

    They already did it. Remember that podcast that didn’t have Tim in it? Yeah.

    I found that quite entertaining thank you very much. 😛

  47. dj75728 says:

    When I got on I was like “I wonder what they’re going to do for April Fools” and then I saw it and I was like “Oh nothing”. And then I scrolled down and was like “never mind”.

    Me too actually.

  48. roadjcat says:

    OH MY GOODNESS!! I JUST GOT AN INTERNAL SERVER ERROR!! APRIL FOOLS DAY IS KILLING 2PSTART!!

    Oh yeah…I got one of those too…I forgot to mention it though. XD Sorry. And I still get extremely large slow downs every 2 hours.

  49. roadjcat says:

    Oh also, I find it kinda funny that this comic wasn’t posted in the morning like some of the others….

  50. zijjh says:

    Gosh Ray, your Art sicks, Imean my sisten could make a better white panel!

    No seriously GREAT COMIC GUYS!!!

  51. johnny40000 says:

    i dont get the joke unless the joke is a part of a white page? or its april fools joke but still dont get it.

  52. dj75728 says:

    Holy crap! I figured it out! Obviously since it’s white you have to highlight it. Duh. Anyways, NCG.

  53. SuperMegaBulimicKoala says:

    this is the only funny april fools joke I’ve seen all day.
    well, this and Yugioh Abridged’s…

    I liked what youtube did.

    I liked Youtube’s gag too.
    UPSIDEDOWNNESS!
    lol

    Also, there’s more now then there was this morning. Interesting.

  55. AVirtuousPagan says:

    They should have done only half of a logo…

  56. Albire says:

    I bet he’s holding the wind waker in his right hand and no I can’t see it(if it is loading over the course of the day)

  57. Slatts says:

    I don’t get it. April fools? Better than last year. International Rick Roll day. It was funny once, but after every website (ever) did it, it got old. Really fast.

    I’m so confused still.

  58. Anewbus says:

    LOL, I love this one, took me a few seconds to realize that it was April fools day, NCG

  59. vincecult says:

    i do hope there is more to it. because while it is funny (yet very aggravating) today. people looking back on it in the archives prolly wont realize it was april fools day

  60. chriskatching says:

    Its funny how many comments there are when there’s no comic….

    I’m going to try to reload it, sorry guys.

    Okies will wait patiently killing demons… 🙂

  61. Ian says:

    The Wind Waker, Heart Breaker comic isn’t loading on my Vista. It may be my computer or it may be the website. If it’s the website, I just wanted to get you guys a heads up.

  62. Tacos says:

    Ok, it’s not April Fool’s Day anymore, you can put the comic up. Now its borderline annoying to be quite honest.

  63. Ray says:

    —— COMIC HAS BEEN UPDATED ——

  64. Yay, first post since the actual comic has been published!

    The art in this one is great. The first panel would be a perfect desktop (if I could bear to give up my Lego Indy).

    Plus I also thought it was kinda funny. It helps that the necessary information was explained in the previous podcast…

  65. RedVinnie says:

    i like it, but because i have a soft heart, it makes me feel bad for epona……

  66. Oliver Strano says:

    Awww. Poor epona. She always gets left behind when you get the ability to use other transport (see warping etc). I like the art a lot this time Ray. Nice one.

  67. Nice comic (finally!); Tim’s comment #14 was a lie! I must of loaded and refreshed dozens of times in Firefox and IE yesterday…

    [spoiler]…I’m no Zelda expert but, since Epona technically exists in a different game-universe than this Link, does that mean she’s not crying because this Link ditched her, rather that Nintendo hasn’t included her in yet another Zelda title? =][/spoiler]

  68. oops; on a related note, I forgot to mentio

    [spoiler]

    [/spoiler]

  69. chriskatching says:

    *giggle*

    Awww. Poor epona. She always gets left behind when you get the ability to use other transport (see warping etc). I like the art a lot this time Ray. Nice one.

    Oh yes, I like the art quite a bit 🙂

    Not sure which of the two I like though.
    I would’ve just found a coin… *flip* … Lol

  70. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    Nice comic guys! The art is fantastic on this one, and the joke was really clever as well. But now I feel sorry for Epona. 🙁

  71. Kyzin says:

    Ended up being pretty good after all. But worth the wait….?

  72. CaptainFreetime says:

    [spoiler]It’s close to midnight and something evil’s lurking in the dark
    Under the moonlight, you see a sight that almost stops your heart
    You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it
    You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes
    You’re paralyzed

    ‘Cause this is thriller, thriller night
    And no one’s gonna save you from the beast about strike
    You know it’s thriller, thriller night
    You’re fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight

    You hear the door slam and realize there’s nowhere left to run
    You feel the cold hand and wonder if you’ll ever see the sun
    You close your eyes and hope that this is just imagination, girl!
    But all the while you hear the creature creeping up behind
    You’re out of time

    ‘Cause this is thriller, thriller night
    There ain’t no second chance against the thing with forty eyes, girl
    Thriller, thriller night
    You’re fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight

    Night creatures calling, the dead start to walk in their masquerade
    There’s no escaping the jaws of the alien this time
    (They’re open wide)
    This is the end of your life

    They’re out to get you, there’s demons closing in on every side
    They will possess you unless you change that number on your dial
    Now is the time for you and I to cuddle close together, yeah
    All through the night I’ll save you from the terror on the screen
    I’ll make you see

    That this is thriller, thriller night
    ‘Cause I can thrill you more than any ghost would ever dare try
    Thriller, thriller night
    So let me hold you tight and share a
    Killer, diller, chiller, thriller here tonight

    ‘Cause this is thriller, thriller night
    Girl, I can thrill you more than any ghost would ever dare try
    Thriller, thriller night
    So let me hold you tight and share a killer, thriller, ow!

    (I’m gonna thrill ya tonight)
    Darkness falls across the land
    The midnight hour is close at hand
    Creatures crawl in search of blood
    To terrorize y’alls neighborhood

    I’m gonna thrill ya tonight, ooh baby
    I’m gonna thrill ya tonight, oh darlin’
    Thriller night, baby, ooh!

    The foulest stench is in the air
    The funk of forty thousand years
    And grizzly ghouls from every tomb
    Are closing in to seal your doom

    And though you fight to stay alive
    Your body starts to shiver
    For no mere mortal can resist
    The evil of the thriller[/spoiler]

    …What? You guys said you wanted people to rise from their graves. I just felt this would be an appropriate way to do so. With Thriller.

    Anyways, that out of the way, the comic is nice. Poor Epona…wait, has there EVER been a toon Epona? o.O I don’t think there has….Maybe Nintendo can’t make a toon horse?

  73. Matt says:

    This comic was hilarious! I’m glad you left the second one out as a kind of bonus, because it compounded the funniness to see the other version first. Poor Epona! 🙁

  74. BadnikHunter says:

    April fooled? Was that the comic only being the first panel? Ugh too much reloading!!! I thought my computer was messed up. DANG IT TIM! I HIT THAT RELOAD BUTTON ONE TO MANY TIMES!!

    This comic used to be good….

    [spoiler]Just kidding, this comic is still awesome, but i think you guys figured xD[/spoiler]

  75. tustin2121 says:

    YAH!! Real comic!

    Poor Empona! *looks at alternate final panel* POOR EMPONA!! DON’T DO IT!! I’ll keep you, and feed you, and rid you around college down here! EMPONA!!!!! NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Also, was it just me or did Link not have the Wind Waker in yesterday’s comic…?

    (PS. This is my real username. I changed it because I’m tired of the inconstancy from the rest of the web. 🙂 )

    Just joking ^^
    Nice comic guys and while i’m here let grab a shovel so i can rise from my grave 😀

  77. Supersonic24 says:

    Poor Epona… but you know, I’m really questioning if this comic was worth the wait. Please guys, don’t do this again next April, it was more annoying than funny, I wanted my comic!

  78. lwelyk says:

    That was the best comic you guys have done in a long time. I loved it. The alternate 3rd panel was better, I’m with Ray on this.

  79. zijjh says:

    Ok, I thought yesterdays comic was much better, I mean think about the depth! That blank white scren really challenged out traditional thoughts of what is a comic, we were required to really look into outselves and reflect on human nature!

    This one is much more traditional, but still challenges us to really question our inner sadness, I mean the darkness not only represents Epona being left behind, but also challenges us to realize the evil of technological innovation.

    Man, this is deep!

    [spoiler]The April Fools Joke was ok, I just don’t think that people should get up in arms over it, I mean, as I’ve said before, Tim and Ray are working hard for us, we shouldn’t demand from them, I mean I remember when people could take a joke on the internet, come on internet, you used to be cool! I think this joke is getting old, should I keep doing it? Oh yeah, Nice Comic Guys[/spoiler]

  80. dj75728 says:

    Man, is it just me or does the second panel look like Epona got ran over by Link and was crying before it happened. Told you Ray was a total sadist. Or maybe he just hates horses. Well anything except for hedgehogs.

  81. nintendogamer101 says:

    Thank you so much for posting the real comic. I love you guys again. In a not gay kind of way! But anyway, about the comic.

    Ray, I bet that PETA would be very upset to see that “alternate 3rd panel”, don’t you think? But I’m sure that PETA wouldn’t be nearly as upset with the actual comic because, you know, at least Link wasn’t riding Epona as if she was some sort of . . . some sort of . . . animal!

    But really, I miss the good old days of the Legend of Zelda where Link actually rode EPONA instead of a TRAIN! I personally hope that Nintendo will make a Legend of Zelda game that stays true to what made the series great like games such as Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask and Twilight Princess. Down with trains, long live horses!

  84. D3vin says:

    *boycott mode off*
    I hate April fools day when it comes to the internet, everyone seems to play a prank that lasts all day and makes various sites unusable.
    For example, two of the Sonic forums i visit re-did their look to look like the forums from 1998, and everyone spammed the place like newbies.
    In real life, people usually prank you once, and that’s it. but the websites stay open all day with those absurd changes. And that is why I hate machines

  85. best comic in a while, art-wise and concept-wise. I love it!

  86. AVirtuousPagan says:

    Was Epona in any of the Wind Waker style games? Is this canon? Does anyone care?…Anyway, great comic.

  87. Ryman says:

    I’m going to try to reload it, sorry guys.

    Hehehe wonder who was serious and who was playing along…

    Nope, I got it from Google. I’m not a fan of the song, but it’s perfect for zombies and graveyards, so I decided to use it after hearing the podcast. And no. There is NEVER enough free time. EVER. Saying there is enough freetime is like saying there is enough Dakka.

  89. Gadoink says:

    Hey, the comic’s here!

    JSYK, when I turned on my computer 5 minutes ago, the first thing I did was head over to 2pstart so I could see the comic! XD

    I must say, that was pretty evil of you guys…

    Now for the normal comment:

    Aww, that poor horse looks really sad.

    My normal comment sucks >_>

    Also,

    I’m going to try to reload it, sorry guys.

    …But then again, he did look me over as a grave riser till I said something.
    Can’t blame Ray for that, he’s only the slave…I mean artist.

    I take back this comment! You are all cruel and unusual! That’s it! I’m un-rising from my grave! -jumps back into grave and waves- Good bye cruel 2pstart!

    lawl.
    yes, you won’t get anything else from me but that.
    so there.

    Sorry, it was too long for the box dealy I guess.

    Anyway…I’ll just copy paste it…

    -Pops head out of grave- I so deserve more! -pops head back in-

  91. roadjcat says:

    Eh. Not a huge fan of this one…but I do have to say that alternate third panel is awful! 😛

    The thing is…you don’t really use Epona that much anyway…what 3 games max? Not enough to get attached really….

  92. roadjcat says:

    Oh and I don’t mean awful like that…

    Crap, deleted part of the tag by accident. Feel free to delete the above comment.

    There was OoT, MM, FSA, and TP where you used her, but she also appeared in MC.

    Also, I enjoyed the comic, but if you do something for April Fools Day again (although it’ll be a while before it’d fall on a Wednesday again), I would suggest having some way to access the real comic as well as the joke, so that way you still get to use the joke, but people would be less upset. Maybe it could be the first comment so it would at least be off the main page and not obvious right away.

    Psssh, comment 101 is where it’s at.

    Anyways, kinda like this weeks comic but I’m a little late posting… I’ll admit, I was disappointed that you didn’t have the real comic uploaded somewhere on the site just not being displayed for me to find in the image index…

  101. Kyzin says:

    Here’s another version of the comic I whipped up.

    No offense Tim and Ray, but I actually like this version more. Well, Ray can’t really take offense cause it’s still his art, but whatever…

  102. duduman56 says:

    You guys should totally do a comic about the new Nintendow DSi or the Pikmin franchise (mainly the upcoming Pikmin 3). I bet you could design it pretty good, Ray. And with Tim’s jokes, it would be hilarious!

  103. Ryman says:

    Here’s another version of the comic I whipped up.

    Darn, he just got comment of the week with that…

    …I’ve lost the will to live.

    GX makes the best comments man. If i can, i vote him for comment of the week xD

  106. This would be more impressive if you clearly didn’t just rub peanut butter on the horses eye to make it look like it was crying, then dub in the tears.

    This comic used to be good.

  107. zijjh says:

    I thiknk its funny how there’s a last minute push to get comment of the week! Well, here we go,

    gIvE mE cOmMeNt Of ThE wEeK!

    LOLZ :p

  108. Lozaiah says:

    Man, I missed it.. I seriously forgot about April Fool’s.
    Darn.. all the people I forgot to prank, aaaaaaargh!!!

    Anyway, this was nice. I didn’t really find it humorous, but I do get the joke. I do have to say that the artwork is really good.

    Oh, and the final Epona panel.. The one here is better than the alternate, it gives a better feel of emptiness whereas the other one with tracks just serves to muddle up the image a little.

  109. FireSpark says:

    Sorry fellas. Due to the out-loud-laughter inducing properties of this week’s comic, it looks like I couldn’t help but vote for you on joystiq webcomic-y poll thingus.

    Not to mention that there is a great “that’s-just-wrong” factor helping out too.

    Great stuff. Keep it coming. Encore!

    Dude, I SO second you there.

  111. Gadoink says:

    Oh wow I got an internal server error shortly after that last comment.

  112. 64Cheese says:

    I just thought it didn’t want to load. Internet problems aren’t uncommon for me. I just thought, “I’ll check back later,” and when I did a couple days later, it was fine. I didn’t even realize it was an April Fools joke until just now when I read the comments.

  113. Shigamado says:

    (Comes back a week later)

    Ooooooooh! It was an April Fool’s joke. Heh, heh……..heh. (Damn, I hate April Fool’s)

    That said, the comic is brilliant. Poor Epona.

  114. Jacob says:

    Daniel Radcliffe will comfort her.

  115. elah says:

    I LOVE THE ARTWORK FOR THIS STRIP!!!!

  116. yeah568 says:

    Just realized. THIS is the comic I came to 2P START! from. It was some article talking about April Fool’s jokes this year. I fail for not remembering.

  117. Anon. says:

    Ah, Toon Link never rode Epona anyway.

  118. Dr. Mantis Tobagan says:

    Oh man this comic just broke my heart a little. I have not played a zelda game since majora’s mask, i had no idea Epona had been so forgotten. How can Link possibly defeat Ganondorf without Epona damnit!? Also, the Spirit Tracks train thing is perhaps the stupidest thing i have ever heard of. Is there anything less Hyrule-esque than industrial revolution and complex machinery without the need of magic?
