Not sure what's going on in this comic? Read the earlier episodes in the Main Series to catch up, or read the one-off episodes in the Shorts Series.
I wonder how many episodes it'll be before Plok looks like his normal self again.
Not that I don't like this look, I just know it ain't here to stay.

Has it really been 2 years? I love this comic so much. I love Plok in general. I've been following since is started but now I've worked up the courage to post. Thank you both for making this Mr. and Mr. Pickford. I look forward to more of the story as well as any other crossovers of your stories/chars/etc. You've probably heard this alot, but thank you again.

It only TASTES like prawn cocktail, Plok. You don't want to know what it REALLY is.
(...it's MARTIAN prawn cocktail!)

Wow, I thought he would be training, not relaxing drinking pawn cocktail though it's nice of them to give him free drinks.

I can only imagine a big damn heroes moment from Xbone, Wubba and Rockyfella, only to find that Plok was having the time of his life.
Anyhow, I'm getting a pretty good chuckle at that 4th wall break. Congrats, Nathan, you're now a part of the Plokverse!

That's not funny!
Comment by Guest Nathan, added Fri, 11 Sep 2015 18:09:18 GMT
@Nathan: You're right... it's hilarious! But seriously, you got a shout out in a Plok comic, that's pretty awesome!
Comment by Guest The Otaku Nerd, added Fri, 11 Sep 2015 19:06:45 GMT
Seriously, I'd be happy to get one!
Nathan, you lucky fellow.
Comment by TheByrd, added Fri, 11 Sep 2015 19:27:43 GMT
Sorry @Nathan, couldn't resist. It was such an easy re-write for the first panel..
Comment by JPickford, added Sat, 12 Sep 2015 00:24:38 GMT
The first meta moment with comments from the comic. I love it...it just fit so well. Poor Rocky, Wubba and Xbone. They're going to be pretty disappointed when they learn what Plok is up to.
Comment by Guest Vanza, added Sat, 12 Sep 2015 11:55:03 GMT
The first panel is a double-edged sword obviously, the joke is awesome considering the real-life circumstances and the current part of the story, however the expense is that a fan had to be the butt of a joke!
If you analyze the entire strip, Rockyfella is the skeptical fan who believes that Plok is over for good, Xbone a neutral observer, Wubba representing the fans who are quick to defend Plok and the fourth panel are the Pickfords simply having a good time right now.
Even if some time passes it doesn't bother me that much, there once was a stretch (I think it were the first months of 2014 IIRC) when there was no update and before that we had no new Plok material for 20 years! We have to remember that.
IMO Plok's new physique shouldn't return to normal until he has knocked some sense into Zob!

I HAVE A CHALLENGE
Plagiarize a Plok level in Super Mario Maker. Then post the results of your atrocity.
Comment by Guest Nathan, added Sun, 13 Sep 2015 07:01:50 GMT
I've been wanting to make a go home cavern Mario level. Marios legs are causing problems though...
Comment by Guest Nick, added Sun, 13 Sep 2015 13:21:26 GMT
Not plok themed but...
Had a go at a simple puzzley one. Not hard but fun I hope.
There are 2 solutions.
Comment by JPickford, added Sun, 13 Sep 2015 18:10:42 GMT
I made a crappy version of Green Hill Zone, since I could not think of any Plok levels to fit in that (and Green Hill Zone is hard enough).
Comment by Guest Nathan, added Sun, 13 Sep 2015 20:51:52 GMT
@WarriorWare I think he's actually getting more buff with every strip!

So... is Plok coming to GOG?

New one up: Easy Cave Adventure

This one is called Nice 'N Easy. Have fun!
Comment by Guest Nathan, added Mon, 14 Sep 2015 21:38:01 GMT
I made a super accurate Space Invaders clone.
Be quick, it will probably will be taken down by Taito.
Comment by JPickford, added Tue, 15 Sep 2015 11:34:23 GMT
Let me guess...
You'll scribble a hastily made comic that does nothing but show off all of our Mario Maker codes.
Comment by Guest Nathan, added Tue, 15 Sep 2015 18:59:20 GMT
Thanks for those levels, I'll try them out tonight and let you know how I did tomorrow. I hope someone will make a level based on Plok.
Comment by Guest WJC, added Tue, 15 Sep 2015 19:42:09 GMT
Plok comic strip, the new home of the Pickfords Mario Maker levels... Plok going to be in that ship so long he'll be back to normal.

Comment by Guest Nathan, added Thu, 17 Sep 2015 15:00:23 GMT
Nobody posted in the past few days?
Anyway, have fun pulling your own hair out with this one

Bowser in the Dark World.
Made easier due to it being 2D

@ Nathan, I completed your stages with no problem... Okay, I did have a few problems with one of your stages but I still completed it. Great levels!
Comment by Guest WJC, added Tue, 22 Sep 2015 14:09:51 GMT
So... I just had a Facebook feed post mentioning that Night Dive Studios just released System Shock: Enhanced Edition on GOG.
It reminded me that Plok still hasn't made its way to GOG yet. Are we going to get an update? I know I keep harassing you guys about it, but I just can't get it out of my mind! If it's under NDA, that's understandable. Just throw us a bone to tide us over.
Comment by Brad Silvia, added Tue, 22 Sep 2015 16:16:03 GMT
They already threw you a bone, with their crappy Super Mario Maker troll levels. As well as my crappy Super Mario Maker troll levels. And Nick's crappy attempt as a Plok level using Super Mario Maker.
Comment by Guest Nathan, added Tue, 22 Sep 2015 19:18:46 GMT
I mean a hint of them actually going through with releasing Plok on GOG.
Comment by Brad Silvia, added Tue, 22 Sep 2015 21:42:56 GMT
Gee, Nathan, kind of sour, aren't you? Even after a shout-out?
Let the Pickfords work on the comic at their pace. It's no race when quality is at stake regarding haste.
Comment by TheByrd, added Fri, 25 Sep 2015 01:20:18 GMT
You mean I am not allowed to get angry at the developers of one of my favorite game of all time, and an awesome webcomic?
Comment by Guest Nathan, added Fri, 25 Sep 2015 02:04:23 GMT
I see no issue really - many may disagree with a one or two "sour" comments from Nathan (I do too) but he is entitled to express them. I rather want differing opinions than only having sycophants around here!
Comment by NameThatNobodyTakes, added Fri, 25 Sep 2015 10:50:58 GMT
Ste's been tied up finishing a paid project this week. Hopefully normal service will resume next week.

>their crappy Super Mario Maker troll levels.
My Mario Maker levels are ace.

Mine are a bit trolly.
Comment by Ste Pickford, added Fri, 25 Sep 2015 12:04:32 GMT
Mine did have trouble capturing the true essence of plok...When's Plok Maker coming out?
Comment by Guest Nick, added Fri, 25 Sep 2015 14:37:01 GMT
Well, I can't say I usually understand a "joke" of calling people's stuff "crap" or rushing comic work out, looking at what happens to quality when creators actually do comply with those demands. I'm just not someone who really appreciates that kind of mindset of dissing people's stuff and I will tend to say something in defense for people. Constructive criticism is pretty cool though, nothing is wrong with that.
As to "Sycophants", I would not exactly say there are a bunch of sycophants around here anyhow, beyond people who like Plok, but that is appropriate for this comic and why we are all here. Still, I think I get this gist now of Nathan being the local salter. Nathan, you're cool man, it just took me a bit to really catch your direction and I will always agree with Plok being an awesome game, even if viewpoints differ. I was just convinced you were some griefer here just to ruin people because they like Plok or something, been in way too many places on the Internets with people who get kicks doing that.
On a more cheery note, I want to try all these levels when I can finally snag a copy of Mario Maker. Student budgeting sucks.
Comment by TheByrd, added Fri, 25 Sep 2015 23:44:51 GMT
i try to make some Cotton Island levels in 1 level... they are ok.
Comment by zeox, added Sat, 26 Sep 2015 01:33:04 GMT
Plok needs to be DLC in Super Mario Maker, then I will have a reason to buy it.
Comment by Guest RosalinaFan573, added Mon, 28 Sep 2015 05:36:59 GMT
There needs to be a Plok Maker.
It will sell millions MORE than Super Mario Maker.
Comment by Guest Nathan, added Tue, 29 Sep 2015 12:54:22 GMT
Sorry for the recent delay with the comic. Real life / work taking up all our time. We should be back up to speed again this week.
Comment by Ste Pickford, added Wed, 30 Sep 2015 13:46:18 GMT
Also Mario Maker. :)
Ah well, makes the next comic sweeter, especially if Nathan's suggestion of a Plok Maker ever did happen. You can take my entire life savings.
If I had actual life savings yet. Crap.
Comment by TheByrd, added Wed, 30 Sep 2015 14:15:55 GMT
why does Plok's face look like a dolphin in the final panel?
Comment by Goyangi, added Wed, 15 Sep 2021 23:34:43 GMT
not a dolphin a seahorse
