Episode 6: The Godgnome

Ah yes, amidst the hell my professors like to refer to as "Final Week", which apparently encompasses not just the week of finals but the last week of classes leading up to it as well, I have produced a new comic. Yeah, last week was a sleep deprived 3D modeling hell for me. Luckily, doing this comic cheers me up and is my way of blowing off some steam. But enough of my angsty rambling.

This is a concept my brother, Donkers (in real life), came up with a while back when we thought, "Wouldn't it be awesome to have a gnome be the biggest crime boss in Azeroth?" Then we thought, "What if that gnome was Donkers?" And then we thought, "But yeah, Donkers shouldn't get his hands dirty with the grunt work. He needs some hired hands...but what creature is a fitting thug for a crime lord of Azeroth?" The real Donkers then came up with our solution, the majestic Boomkin. Since I started this comic, I've been nagged to use the Boomkin plot, so here it is.

Part of my inspiration for this plot line/character development also comes from Penny Arcade. They had a shirt at one time, spoofing "The Godfather" with the "The Goldfarmer". So you can see how my mind works. Before you know it, Donkers was having people offed and driving through the streets of Stormwind with the The Sopranos Theme playing in the background. At least in my mind.

Long story short, this isn't the last we've seen of the Godgnome. Stay tuned, after this week I'm off on winter break so more comics should be flowing soon.

Let's see, I woke up this morning, gotta get myself a gun.
