Hey, I like Gotham Knight. Batman sounds awesome in Japanese.

Hehe, nice one. I hope V for Vendetta makes a cameo mention. Smile

Sure it's green, but Andy should really re-consider the cosuming choices. Shouldn't superhero comics' fans be more historically attuned, given how often traveling to the past comes up as a plot point?

seriously, thanks for making me laugh more than I have in almost a month. I needed something like this to cheer me up a bit with how rough things have been. I just wish my mom were still around so I could share it with her, as we both liked to make fun of the fact many "conflicting fandoms" acted so snooty around those of other fandoms. she'd be getting a giggle out of this at least.

Wait 'til the Webcomic News Elf and the Newspaper Comic Strip Elf show up. WCNE is a pimply kid with a 3-second attention span, and NCSE is a 100-year-old geezer with hearing aids who still can't understand what Nina says.

Anyway, I love the current arc. Keep it up!

Are all news elves douchebags who indiscriminately hate things outside of the realm of fandom? Is it like, in their blood? Or were they raised that way?

Nina looks so cute in the fourth panel when Seth is verbally pwning her.

This is the first strip that made me want to see what Nina would be like animated, because I reckon it would be awesome.

I seriously think Seth was trying to teach Nina a lesson, not actually hating on anime/manga fandom. And Andy seems kinda neutral at this point...

Anyway, awesome strip again. Can't wait to see where this goes.

I thought Seth was gonna be the News Elf for American comics in general but its funnier to have one for each type.

LOL! Well, Nina would be the blue one (I guess the girl won't be pink/yellow for once \Anime smallmouth/), and Seth is obviously the black one. Andy has a red cape and stuff so he's the leader?! Now we need two more for it to be perfect =D

So NCSE can be white....and WCNE can be yellow! Then we'll have all the colours of the COLOUR RANGERS from Level E =D

Actually, the giant-titted school girls thingy and the whole thing with news elves for anime and manga, indie comics and superhero comics have brought me to a brilliant idea for a manga/indie/superhero crossover involving news elves...

I just got to say this strip was adorable. I hope we get to learn more about new elves. ^__^
