Megatokyo

Filed in ChordTags: ,

When people think of the webcomic Megatokyo, few reflect on the humor and whimsy that was at the core of early strips, before cartoonist Fred Gallagher started building a story around initial protagonists Largo and Piro. Despite the preponderance of dramatic storytelling in later comics, on occasion Gallagher returns to the whimsy that was at the core of older comics. The latest comic is not only an homage to past silliness, but was also a fun thumbing of the nose to Gallagher’s readers, with Largo using his modified smartphone to Rickroll the nightclub he was in. In doing so, Gallagher himself in essence Rickrolled his readership, while leaving fans wondering what just happened at the nightclub, and how Largo and his friends will extradite themselves from this latest mess.
