CBSi + Giant Bomb Merger Comic!

Oh lordy, what fresh hell have I wrought upon these unsuspecting forums once again?

So yeah, I got a pal who kindly bought me this gold membership dealie in exchange for crafting a monthly comic commission. This month's was to pitch a CBS-style sitcom for our favorite video game reviewing peoples to appear in as a result of the recent buy out, but I decided to go bigger with it. Way bigger. Unfeasibly bigger. Behold:

Yeah, my bad. And no worries, an actual blog will transpire at some point later this week. Meanwhile, come up with more CBS names for Giant Bomb things before that parody Twitter account beats us all to it.

You forget yourself, good sir. Meaning: look at your avatar, then my username.

I wonder how many people here are old enough to get the Picket Fences reference.

Great stuff as usual!

I live in Canada and know about 3 words of Spanish. Anyone care to explain the second last panel?

Posted by Milkman

This is absolutely fantastic.

Posted by fetchfox

@BisonHero: Something along the lines off "I would die a thousand times for you" (google translate is your friend).

Posted by BisonHero

@fetchfox: It's weird that I sometimes still forget that Google Translate exists.

I still don't get the panel, though. Is there any reference to Giant Bomb/Comic Vine, aside from Luchadeer? The title and dialogue and stick figures seem totally random.

Posted by Mento

@BisonHero: Yeah, sorry, I got overly in-jokey with that panel.

The title (at least according to whatever translation software I came across on Google) is "The Shaven R" and the guy with the spiky hair is saying "I would die a thousand times for you, Horsey". They're both Johnny V references.

@BisonHero: Well taking a shot in the dark it could be a reference to this:

@BisonHero: It says : I will die a thousand times for you , caballito . Well it should've said caballito instead of horsey keep your cheesy spanish soap opera dialog consistent man!

God, the Horsey bit killed me, classic Johnny V. Fantastic work.

Their all pretty great references. Shit my Vinny Says? Vinny is known for his outrageously offensive word choice/ thoughts. Two and a Half Cool Babies should be pretty obvious. Inaba is the town that Persona 4 takes place in, and Watermelon is a thing in that game, to a minor extent. $100,000 Pyramid was a game that was quicklooked, a few minutes with said quicklook will explain a lot. I'm a wizard and that's fucked up is the original line, something I believe Jeff said on the podcast and was a very popular meme for a bit there. Etc.

Besides the MS paint look this is pretty funny. Good work duder.

Posted by fetchfox

I love this duder. So many great references.

I would watch all of these shows! Well, maybe except Klepicket Fences. I heard that it's pseudo intellectual, full of itself, and ruined the original nightly line up.

Posted by Vexxan

I would so watch $!"# MY Vinny Says. I also imaging it being in Italian accent.

Posted by MooseyMcMan

That's great!

@Mento: You spelled Entertainmentotions wrong. :p

@Hailinel: Co-starring Zelda Rubinstein! And a just-famous Don Cheadle. I wasn't a fan at the time, but it's a good one to revisit.
