I like the fact that the comic was researched; for a comic more aimed at realism (as opposed to existing in a world incorporating comic physics laws!), it does show.
As I said, I can only go on what my partner assured me, but I guess UK practice may be slightly different? I don't know. Either way, I'm just zis guy, you know? (Congratulations to the probably 2 people out there who get the joke)
Personally I thought getting naked was part of the deal, but hey, I wouldn't know myself. Though I can attest that socks are mystical things. Well, mine are, anyway.
As for Dr. Wily, I'd never seen Mega Man before - partly because my parents never let me grow up with any kind of console - so I didn't recognise him. Wikipedia did of course give me all the details, so now I get the joke properly! Needless to say, WordOwl has been updated with the correct name...
Keep up the comic goodness!
(I swear I should come up with a proper catchphrase that befits comics one of these days. Something that's a cross between "...by the power of Grayskull!" and "Thundercats, ho!" and not lame either.)
