#3209: Language Barrier

This Comic's Storylines:

This Comic's Cast:

Some readers have commented in the past that they don't like how many characters I have that can't actually speak -- Bunny, along with Mummy and Bucky. Now, to be fair, those characters are the favorites of OTHER fans, so it's one of those weird balancing acts between having characters that some like, while not using them so much that the people that DON'T like them feel like they're over used. Of course, since Bucky and Mummy have largely disappeared from CVRPG (moving over to DSWC aside from the occasional Righteous Heretics) appearance, so that point is somewhat moot anyway.

Still, I do agree that I can't overuse those kinds of characters, and so we have a situation like this with a character that can't speak English (if he's even really speaking at all) talking to a character that can, and instead of just naturally conveying the information, the other character is completely lost. Seems like a nice inversion of my own trope.


When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
