Brawl in the Family celebrates 400 strips with a musical


7:00 PM on 04.12.2012



I've mentioned before how much I enjoy Matthew Taranto's Brawl in the Family webcomic. It doesn't seem like that long ago when those first Kirby gags appeared, yet here we are, 400 strips later. It's only fitting that such a milestone would be accompanied by one of Taranto's famous musical numbers -- remember, he also performs the lead role in the fan-made Ace Attorney musical.

Behold "The History of Nintendo," a toe-tapping chronicle of the company's origins as a playing card maker through the development of some of the greatest (and not so great) gaming hardware around. Then the 2:25 mark comes along, and Matt totally blows up the spot like a boss!

This video couldn't have come at a better time. Frequent visitors to the site will be aware that Matt recently underwent major surgery and was temporarily unable to work on more strips. This video demonstrates that no malady can hold him down and that he'll continue to make BitF for as long as he still has breath. Congratulations, Matt! Here's to health and fandom!

Here on Farts 'N' Crafts, we tackle a lot of hard-hitting issues. And by hard-hitting issues, I specifically mean "bodily fluids," which is almost ironic considering the show's title. We've done dog feces, we've gone hedgeho...more

All characters should be redone in the style of Bubble Bobble for maximum cuteness

Hamza and I are huge fans of Paul Robertson's pixel art and animation, though the same could be said of everyone here at Destructoid, I suspect. He's one of the best. Trips to Robertson's blog are always a treat, albeit for d...more

Farts 'N' Crafts: The Witcher 3 and warheads candy

This week, I stop mucking around with condiments, pasta, and watercolors and just do a good old-fashioned drawing. The subject? Geralt of Rivia, The White Wolf, star of The Witcher books and games. While drawing, I'm asked stupid questions by Bill Zoeker, who doesn't know anything about Witchers. Also, we eat very sour candies.more
