The third volume got a lot more interesting in terms of plot and actual emotion away from some of the earlier stereotypes that were hindering it. Piro is a lot more relatable in this. Note, I have an aversion to l33t, so this may be what causes my bias. There are far fewer Shirt Guy Dom strips in this one, and they actually aren't as bad this time. Also we are treated to some interesting side stories and concept art after the main chapters.
Megatokyo is by far my favorite webcomic. I cannot tell you how many times it has made me cry after spending about 5 minutes laughing my head off because it is that funny. Although you can read it on line for free, it is better to read it in book form if you can find it because it flows more easily that way. In my opinion this is probably the volume where the story starts getting really good, and the writer's art style has improved from the first book.
Came across this on my library shelf. I used to read this online, so I didn't mind that it was book three. This is a cute & funny gamer/manga comic. The art is pretty and the story interesting and complex. A little confusing at times. I like reading it as a book, I had read these online already. I checked and this comic is still on-going so maybe I'll look for book four, etc.
I own the first two volumes of MT, and I've read the webcomic from beginning to today. Reading it on dead tree definitely makes the plot and story more cohesive. I continue to notice little bits that I missed while reading it online. Another sweet find at the CADL. Wonder if I'll have to reserve the next volume, or if it's on the shelf...
I gotta say, as much as I like the main story, I just love the comics at the end that took place in the game universe. Something about Pirogoeth lighting Largo's head on fire is just awesome. XD And the go-cart. Oh, the go-cart...
