Prologue - Page 1: The Youthful Couple




kenisu - #01
Well, this is it. This project has been literally years in the making, as it's been brewing in my mind since I first finished the game in 2000 (coherent scenes that I recall to this day didn't start forming until summer of 2002). At any rate, I had been putting it off and putting it off, until finally, just this last April, when I came back to this site after a long absence and discovered that Mother 3 was soon to be released. That brought back the fanboy in me, and I wasted no time in making plans for a comic series of my favorite game in the whole trilogy - Mother 1. The mysterious elements of this game, and the uncanny landscapes which remind me of my childhood, have long held me entranced. So, I present to you what has been on paper only since April, but what has been cooking up in my mind since six years earlier.
To comment on this specific page, I'd like to admit that the introductory narrative was a bad decision on my part. For future reference, the phrase "Little did they know" automatically cheese-ifies ANY piece of fiction. George and Maria needed no formal introduction - they introduce each other. I should have used a single subtitle saying "Outskirts of a rural American town, circa 1906", but I guess it's all water under the bridge now.

kenisu3000 MOTHER Christmas Theatre: Page 4 (Lucas's Gift)
And here it is: the whole reason I had the idea for this comic in the first place. That image of the severed horse's head at the foot of that one playboy's bed in The Godfather still haunts me, so I decided to make something funny out of it. Originally I was going to put this together with MOTHER 2 characters, with Ness getting the stickhorse and the other Chosen Three getting fed up with his childish ways and taking the hatchet to his precious new toy; but I realized that it would be a liiiittle out-of-character for Ness (I dunno, maybe he'd be Mushroomized?), so I went with Lucas and Claus instead.

A Buzz-Buzz drawing done for the Interpretation dealie that Mystic Pyro Freak has set up. That's the Sound Stone he's... umm, levitating (note the sound wavelength spanning the stone's main face), although this was before I became aware that the stone is supposed to look like a rainbow-colored conch shell (a'la the EB Zero Magicant houses or the God's Tail rocks). Big deal, I guess... I've always thought of it as a flat, shale-like stone, so that's how I'm presenting it.
