NegaDYOS: Plot-by-Numbers by @Thorvald (El Thorvaldo)

My 23rd submission to DYOS XII: [link]

~~This page is really a cheap excuse to plug Kaiserreich.~~

The $~400 pricetag was totally off the top of my head, yet ironically matches Photobucket's shot-in-the-face—on the subject, this is the only page I've been able to spoof of the Styleses' works before digging into external archives, as even before the rent-seeking their previous comics had been arbitrarily resized into virtual illegibility.

Spoofing Stylesrj proved surprisingly difficult, as his dialogue often descends into self-parody by default. (Un)Luckily, TV Tropes jokes never seem to get old around here: CivGeneral had heavily foregrounded the Hero's Journey during the early thread, and the original comic itself was probably based, at least in part, on his attempt to pseudo-reboot his character and purge the mountain of collective DYOS history—I had to talk him out of exactly this sort of reset several times.

If you want to know what Tabby's on about without going full Postmodern, check out this.
