Now, it's not a spoiler for me since I've beaten the game... oh, in 2011...

But why in the Sun's name would you say "Major Spoiler" and then just spout out the spoiler like that?
That just doesn't make sense. Plus, it's rude.

And not really a spoiler at all.
It's called strategy.

Had no problems with these in darkroot, but I got punched by one in great hollow, whilst trying to kill a vagrant.

You know I never had this problem with them. During my first play through I say them while going to Sif and thought to my self "These guys look easy...Which means they can whoop my ass." And boy am I glad I learned that.

I never have trouble with the fungi family.

Anywho, I'm kinda addicted to Dark Souls right now so I'm looking at Dark Souls art, you're the biggest contributor so far I think.

Thankee~
I got an easier place to see the majority of my comics... on my comic site!
Not really spoilerific in the comic itself, but just giving a warning juuuuust in case.
And thank you~ I do love me some Dark Souls! And I hope I do the community proud~
[also, I post plenty of Dark Souls-related things thru my Tumblr. More often than my DA... XD]

Ah thank you for the links, I'm really stuck on some good comics and Dark Souls related things right now.

Finally beat the game, took a month and a LOT of frustration (rare for a gamer like me who usually adapts much faster) but I FINALLY killed Lord Gwyn and entered NG+, the Dark Lord ending was my first ending to the game because my previous attempts I deleted due to me not liking the build and I didn't like Frampt but knew that I could get to the Four Kings early and boop: met Kaath, I'm such an asshole as a Darkwraith XD

Haha - I love the perspective 'you are dead' messages. Isn't that what Resident Evil 4 would tell you when you got a game over?

I've gotten lucky with these guys. Each time I start to fight them and shit goes south, I walk a certain distance away and they just stop entirely and in essence become statues, so then I can hit them with no penalty.

I also think the colours you use add to the humor, and also gives it that eye catching effect. And I can't forget the expression, they make me laugh so much. I fell out of my chair once.

Your short comic is the best. I actually bought the game because f you, and I love playing it and dressing my character different ways. I recently joined a covenant that gave me a stone that turned my head into a dragon's head, and I can breath fire. So, keep making the comic, I swear to read every single one. I actually want to start my own now, it seems like a lot of fun. Yours is certainly relatable.

Yeah, you have to love those stupid mushroom men. The little tikes are quite amusing in how they trip and tumble...but those adults...man they will clobber you just as you depicted.

The comic here is a perfect depiction of their punches. I love the dark and yet humorous style—perfect for a dark and chaotic game such as Darksouls.

All in all, great piece here!

Haha yeah, I bet the developers were laughing their heads off coming up with the concept for them, and thinking 'players won't see this coming hehehehehehe, we'll make them drop a ridiculously low amount of souls too! muahahahaha!' At least that's how I picture it haha.

Whod ever thought the most silly looking enemy in the whole game, was the most lethal Newbie smasher ever created?

And after realizing that their "kids" lack bloody fists, while the parents dont, actually made me realize these things arent ment to be messed with....
