And so we have the second Halloween comic. You can see that I set it up in two rows, with the bottom row being in the background of the top, and vice versa, similar to what I did when X and Zero were around.
On the top row, we have Megaman dressed as Bass and Bass dressed as Megaman. Mynd is dressed up as Frankenstein's monster and Mike is dressed as the Pink Ranger from last year's Halloween special. George is a giant ice cream cone, Bob's just all pertied-up, and Roll is dressed as Super Ho. She was originally going to be dressed as a vampire, but I liked the Super Ho idea better. And lastly we have the Helmeted Author dressed up as Rick O'Shay.
In the second row, we have Proto Man dressed as Zero (an awesome costume, if I do say so myself) and the regular Author dressed as Q, from Star Trek: The Next Generation (cause I'm a giant Star Trek geek, if you haven't figured that out yet). Then Chadling's just... well, a flower or something, and Nate is a mime... get it? Cause he can't talk? Then we have Dr. Light dressed as Flame Mammoth from Megaman X and Dr. Wily also dressed as Bass. I'm not sure how Dr. Light knows about Flame Mammoth, but that's hardly the point here.
I think I would say this was really the start of the whole Helmeted Author thing, since we see here that he's apparently independent of the regular Author. It was more of an easter egg than a mistake, but I don't think I intended it to be anything more than that.
