2.12: Surrounded

  • Alex Papadimoulis 2008-07-31 01:38
    2.11 was surprisingly easy to pick a favorite: bstorer for #208803. I mean really, there is just no topping Mandatory JAPANESE GAME SHOW Day.

    Here's today's blank.

    You have it confused. There are two stories going on at the same time in MFD: Gilroy's job, which is the one run by the fruitcake on the boat (L'Amour Industries, I think?), and Stephen Le'Vamp's zany adventures at Magenta Corp, which is of course run by Mr. Magenta the wannabe supervillain from the first "season" of MDF.

  • KD 2008-07-31 08:59
    I'm also trying to figure out who Gilroy works for, I'm sure he was on the boat yesterday, shore leave???
  • Matt.C 2008-07-31 09:03


    Magenta could have his HQ on an aircraft carrier, and the ship could transform into a giant robot, a semi, a bird, a cassette recorder, anything.
  • Matt.C 2008-07-31 09:04
    Magenta co. looks exactly like my work... yikes!

  • K&T 2008-07-31 09:16
    Ha!
  • ObiWayneKenobi 2008-07-31 09:20
    Gilroy works for (presumed name, since none has been given) Mr. L'Amour, the balding nutcase on the boat.

    Here's the timeline:

    Season 1: Gilroy graduates college, gets a job as a contractor (via shady recruiter) to work for Magenta Corp. By the end, Magenta thinks he's a spy and fires him an hour before his contract is up.

    Pre-Season 2: Gilroy is in the cage by the gorilla. Presumably has several interviews at this point, but nothing comes to fruition.

    Season 2: Gilroy is hired by L'Amour, or rather browbeaten into thinking he agreed to the job. Meanwhile, Magenta hires the vampire Stephen Le'Vamp because he has the "Medallion of Power". Magenta also lures COBOL Bill back to work through treats. He evidently now also has some day laborer Java programmers, who Bill rounded up from some computer store.

    Like I said, there are two different stories going on, and the comics alternate between the two: Gilroy's story, and Magenta's.
  • blah 2008-07-31 09:31
    This really isn't making much sense, but then MFD never had any substance. Is this why Gilroy lost his biohazard specs in recent comics and "he" suddenly has them on now?

    But Gilroy was in this one, on the frist frame!

  • ObiWayneKenobi 2008-07-31 09:59
    Gilroy is the kid. The guy with the glasses is Jenkins, Mr. Magenta's assistant/toady/Smithers

    The people in this comic are:

    Mr. Magenta: Shredder/Magneto impersonator
    Stephen Le'Vamp: Vampire w/medallion
    Jenkins: Weedy guy with glasses and penis-looking hair
    W3C: Stick figures outside Magenta HQ
  • Matt.C 2008-07-31 10:01
    You're probably joking KD, but for the record Gilroy has spiky front forward hair. Jenkins has the small pyramid sticking out of his.

    So I've finally realised that Gilroy and Jenkins are actually different characters. Glad I'm not the only person who missed out on that rather pertinent point. Alas, it doesn't make any of the comics any funnier...

    I'm joking, I love MFD! Between reading this and doing work, it's a no-brainer!

    I really like how the word 'Tragic' looks in this font. It's like a car model or something.

    Jenkins probably drives a Ford Tragic.
