Manly Guys Doing Manly Things: Pokemon Style

So I saw this webcomic posted earlier today, and it absolutely cracked me up.  It comes from Manly Guys Doing Manly Things, and is actually about 5 separate entries rolled into one strip.  The webcomic itself is full of video game and movie references.  Another particularly funny one is a game of Spartan gay chicken between Kratos (God of War) and Leonidas (300).  Here's the awesome Pokemon comic:

(Sorry, there was no way to make the comic readable without cutting a little of the right margin.  click for a link to Imgur and an unhindered view)

Now I really want to go play Red/blue and nickname a magikarp Mr. Fish, and bludgeon smaller pokemon with it.

But really though, go check out that webcomic series.  I discovered that the artist, Kelly Turnbull, has also done work on the great series 'Ugly Americans'.

And yes, Mr. Fish and trainer are recurring characters.


  1. This is actually only half of the comic. It goes on with the kid getting in trouble for having Mr. Fish actually eat other pokemon, which explains why he needs work

  2. Go to template > customize > adjust widths

    Increase overall width to like 1200 04 1000 or whatever looks ok to you.

    Majority of peoples monitor are over 1300 in width. So 1000 or 1100 is fine to do.

    Of the 1000 (if you want that width) you can set how much of it is your side bar.

    Go to my blog to check how it looks.

    Mine is 1250/400

  3. Love that comic, glad to see a link to the rest of the work! :D

  4. hahaha that was awesome. I whole new way to play pokemon. Mr. Fish is a great nickname too. But hate those damn magikarp, I would have taken golem.
