A hospital drama with videogame references that takes place in canada? SIGN ME UP.

but in all seriousnes Im a little confused what going on here.

So I guess she's hallucinating and seeing video game characters? Let's hope one of the more murderous characters doesn't show up. Also, I love that dress. Where can I get one?

Almost forgot these were even posted. What with all the E3 news. Fortunately, I love these comics and made the effort to read it.

At least she's not dead. I'm curious as to where this is gonna go. Lots of Nintendo characters in this story, though. Guess we know Erin's favorite company.

That dress can be yours for the low price of one visit to the ER!

I would imagine that she actually has this weird dimension shift thing going on between the real world and the video game world.

'Course, the only basis for that is the Triforce symbol, and that it would make for a better story than just hallucinations. (Probably.)

I think I know what this is about.
She's now sees video-game characters among reality, and she's the only one capable.
Therefore either one of the following is possible:
A. She is completely insane and the head trauma caused by the car accident caused this.
B. She has woken up from the matrix and realized that our world and the video-game world is the same, but she's the only one to notice it so far.

Her head is a bit M*A*S*Hed but at least her memory of video-games hasn't been Scrubbed out.

So you're saying our princess is really...
*puts on sunglasses*
in another castle?

YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I like this, it's nice when CM tries to tell a story, and this one seems like it has a lot of potential.

Every time a new one pops up, i read all of the comics in the story :)

Does she only see nintendo charaters?

The plot thickens. This would explain a lot, like, maybe the previous comics were hallucinations.

remember the comic about them driving to the developers building?

epic coma-induced dream sequence!

This is indeed quite interesting.

I came for the funny, got a storyline instead. No complaints though.

I still have no idea what is going on, still good though.

Was that an Akira reference?

you're trying waaay too hard dude.

OT: i like it that so far, i've seen only link and pikmin, which are based on nintendo consoles i really liked :3

ether that or they were at e3 and all the characters she sees are cosplayers.
Edit: totally did not see the pikmin there. so my theory is now invalid.

seeing as how she didn't recognize the pikman...
i'm guessing that she can't remember anthing about video games, but instead, she sees them everywhere.
like they left her mind in the crash, and now they are trying to get back in.

i dunno
just putting my two cents in there

And she did break reality after that... hmmm...

Ya what is this? I get the characters that are being used, but is this suppose to be funny? If so... it's not.

Anyways, Im wondering who those two people in the last frame are, and why the one guy is not pleased to see them...

She's much calmer than I would be.. If I ever saw a pikmin in real life I would freak out and hurl it through a window.

I could be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure that Erin's always had a tattoo of the Triforce on her left arm.

The blonde is Sharon, their bitchy boss (whom nobody is happy to see), and the guy in blue shirt and red tie is Ashley, a co-worker.

Erin Stout was just a regular video game advertiser journalist...until she started seeing real, live characters from her favorite games! Too bad she's the only one who can see them! Join Erin as she tries to learn to live with her new friends...and keep everyone else from thinking she's crazy! Life just got a whole lot wackier!

Tuesdays at 8 on the teevee.

Lovely, though i do have to admit it is a bit difficult reading this comic when all the characters used to be very comedic, and now all serious business. Still, interesting stuff.
And it would be cool if a new Critical Miss comic comes out and it would be advertised in the "main 3" section, even for a few hours. i often don't spot it in the lower space.

The blond woman is her boss/editor

they were never happy to see her

Suddenly it makes sense. The only question is, did the pikmin INSERT the interverron drip or was it trying to take it out?

A pun involving 2 awesome Sitcoms?!

A definite WIN good sir.

It looks like the crash gave Erin some brain damage and she's seeing videogame characters everywhere. I think this is meant to be a piece on that study that was recently released on videogamers and how sometimes people will correlate reality to a videogame, or see game items and objects in real life.

Either way, this is making me chuckle a bit, but I'm really worried for Erin and the gang. :(
What made them crane the car like that? From the looks of it Eliot was behind the wheel...

All she has to do is head back to her House and take it easy for a couple days.

AH! I UNDERSTAND WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW!

...Please tell me there isn't a miscarriage subplot imminent.

I was guessing she was at/on her way to a con of some sort, hence the cosplaying link that they crashed into (or crashed into them). Yes, she was a little confused when she woke up, probably not remembering the accident and being a little thrown seeing link. She may be hallucinating a bit with the pikmin.

Interesting...so is she now going to hallucinate video game characters?

If the murderous characters do show up that could be interesting. Not that I want harm to come to her. Maybe the good characters have to fight the bad ones to save her?

Also, I hope they tell us how the crash happened.

So wait, this comic actually has a plot now? And here I thought it was just a series of nonsequeter references of popular games released at the time. :D
