The first extra page of the kickstarter is COMPLETE! Matrix shows off how ramming huge swords into the ground ain’t no big thang, and what’s that in the bush? a Red Ryder bb gun??

Published on by

  • http://www.zapcomic.com/ Pascalle Lepas

    Great page! Love the energy in the first three panels!

  • KungFuKlobber

    BAROOSH!: The single-player version of KADOOSH! For when you’re sick of chopping down trees and just want to teach that dirt a lesson.

    • IDPounder

      Seriously though Matrix, what did that chunk of turf ever do to you?

      • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

        It got in her way!

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      There are many trees but only one ground.

    • Xinef

      This sword is like a minecraft multitool – good for chopping wood, digging dirt, crushing rocks, crushing infantry… except it has not been upgraded to mine Natakus and other minerals harder than obsidian.

      • Speedy Marsh

        Just don’t dig below you. One scoop, and you dig straight through the bedrock, and fall into the void.

  • Flaming Squirrel

    Oh, oh, is it a slightly smaller ridiculously big sword? I hope it’s a slightly smaller ridiculously big sword.

    • Ryan

      That would go along with her implication that Cho should develop the 999 Fists of Fury technique.

  • Astralfury

    The hilt is fitting with a sake bottle to endear him to the more reasonable sword.

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      That would be a quality feature upgrade.

      • Speedy Marsh

        … until he tries sword swallowing, to get the last drop.

    • IDPounder

      Cupholders are all the rage on new rides these days.

  • ColdFusion

    You’ll sword your eye out!

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      I knew this was coming!

  • Ryan

    I like how Matrix took care of everyone else in one or two pages each, and now here she is on the 8th page of trying to get through to Ken.

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      This is because Ken is a more complex and nuanced character. Or he a stubborn jackass. One or the other.

      • Astralfury

        Why is this an either/or scenario, exactly?

      • Ryan

        Kabuki is pretty complex and nuanced.

      • Internet_Zen_Master

        -insert “whynotboth.jpg” here-

        Seriously, if there is any character out there in fiction these days that fits the bill of “stubborn jackass who is also complex and nuanced (plus occasionally drunk)”, it’s definitely Ken.

        Oh and, uhm, hey Matrix. Isn’t there a “no meddling” rule you’re supposed to be following or something?

        • leavescat

          That got thrown out the window, remember? Lex saw Yori’s sword and said “you know what, everyone’s going to die to guns anyway, so do whatever you want besides directly saving someone’s life.”

        • Neska

          Occasionally drunk? He’s drunk whenever possible! Which is less often than he’d like when they’re wandering around a forest . . .

  • charles81

    I feel a great sadness at the changing of Ken’s Zanbatō

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      Life is change. Maybe he won’t lose it forever!

      • Ryan

        Dual-wield?

        • http://4chan.org anononya

          Alright then. Make it so.

        • Xinef

          Triple-wield? I think some anime went even further, wielding five or more swords at the same time.

          • Kid Chaos

            “Triple-wield” in “One Piece” (“Zoro”), and “7-wield” in “Naruto Shippuuden” (“Killer B”).

          • leavescat

            Technically also in One Piece there was that octopus that was doing 8-wield.

          • Kid Chaos

            Really? Guess I missed that one; I’m not a huge “One Piece” fan, I just remember the basics. :)

  • endplanets

    Man, she is just handing out free swords to the core 4 like crazy.

    • Kid Chaos

      I don’t think Ina or Cho would take one, but with this crowd, you never know…

      • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

        Cho seems to like handouts, actually!

        • Kid Chaos

          “1000 fists of fury…AND A SWORD, BITCHES!”

      • Aaliyah Velasquez

        I know right

      • http://4chan.org anononya

        I can see Ina using a ladylike ninja fan, though. Y’know, one of those with hidden wires or razor sharp edges or something.

    • Ryan

      Palette-swaps for everyone!

    • leavescat

      Obviously, this is the 4’s swords adventure!

  • Sunwu

    Ohhhh I hope its an even bigger sword or at least a light saber!!!

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      Maybe a BIG light saber, why not!

      • Sunwu

        wait I got it matrix found out that the Daisuke were mandalorians like Boba fett and its actually mandalorian helmit Armor and blaster!!!

  • dude

    Fast Ken vs. Unrusty Yori
    YOU DECIDE

    • KungFuKlobber

      More like Fast and Furious Ken.

      • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

        We’re gonna need sequels, LOTS of sequels.

      • Ryan

        2Ken2Furious

        • Kid Chaos

          The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Ken

  • Maximum Carnage

    You’ll slash your eye out!

    Or at least someone else’s. Preferably, a lot of someone else’s.

  • Minando

    Introducing: the european bidenhander. Or maybe the Miaodao ?
    Whatever it will be, the age of manga-ish swordplay seems to be over.

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      Over? UNLIKELY!

      • Kid Chaos

        IMPLAUSIBLE!

  • Internet_Zen_Master

    Pfft. If that alternative sword is slightly smaller than Ken’s current sword/KADOOSHER-OF-DOOM, who says he can’t use both weapons at once?

    I mean, other than those pesky suspension of disbelief and realism thing-a-majigs…

  • squirejames

    It’s a Red Ryder BB Gunblade! Designed by Leonheart Corporation as a gift to one of Matrix’s friends…

  • Karishi

    Turns out Matrix and Yumiko are super-close and this whole chat is a clever plan to get Yumiko another priceless Daisuke relic.

  • Xinef

    Anyone with me on that?

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      For you, Xinef, because I can only upvote a comment once:

      • Xinef

        … I’m going to hide all my Death Stars.
        Like… right now.

      • Internet_Zen_Master

        -cut to image of Lex and Matrix-
        Lex: Really Matrix? Really?
        Matrix: You said I could do anything I wanted other than saving someone’s life. That was the rule.
        Lex: ……………… *grumble*

      • Kid Chaos

        Ken with a lightsaber would actually be better. He wouldn’t know what to do with an X-Wing, except pick it up and hit somebody with it.

        • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

          At least if he crashed it in a swamp he wouldn’t require the Force to get out.

          • charles81

            Yes he would… BRUTE FORCE

          • Kid Chaos

            “The Force is strong with this one.”

      • Kid Chaos

        Upon further review…that picture is awesome!!! 😁

  • noisyparker

    She is totally not meddling much.

    • Kid Chaos

      Nope, not much; not much at all.
