It's been thrown down! And the dog having a rap number? Oh man this is the type of things that made the Dragonball movies so aweful. Beautiful people don't read comics. My girlfriend is beautiful to me and she would read manga, if he knew how to read it. She gets confused with the right to left format. I'll teach her how.

As someone who is a big fan of Power Girl, I had to smile at the Super Hero Elf's joke. Smile

Pure awesome. The evil news elf makes a good point. I wonder if she works for TMZ

Oh no she didn't! D:

Ceci still has a point, harsh as it is.

Yes, she's so right! She's perfectly illustrated by example that the so-called "beautiful people" are cruel and arrogant jerks with no manners who look down on others for silly reasons.

Epic Nina in that last panel. I want merch with that face on it.

I hope some more of our favorite characters will make an appearance soon. If popularity determines power levels in this comic, Ceci will be like a physical god compared to our Troperific Trio!

I've seen tall, beautiful girls who dressed like Ceci (NOT cosplaying) lining up for BL mangaka's autograph. Wink

Titanic the animated musical. Very Happy I have to admit, that was the first thing I thought of as well when I saw the mention of a rapping dog.

I'm rather enjoying this series of Nina strips. Who'd have thought a simple trip to an indie comic convention would turn into an epic battle to save all comics, pitting news elf vs news elf?

and Dormcat strikes the correct answer... subversion

the key will be for Nina and boyos to figure out what type of comix their opponents cannot resist... and turn them to the dark side.

Every time I think of a rapping dog, Who Let the Dogs out song comes to mind. It's an older song, so I'd be surprised if most people today even heard of it.

But harsh as it is, it is rare to hear of stars reading manga/ comics all together.

But I must say, Nina's face at the last panel was quite epic to say the least.

Ceci is an entertainment news elf?

Personally I would have liked the last panel to be Nina flying thru the air at the new elf like a howler monkey in an incoherent rage.

BLEARGGH! or Funnuraba!

There's always next week I guess.
