I’m sure I’m not alone in this, but I’m probably more familiar with the nighttime version of Johto’s battle music than I ought to be.

You know you’ve gone next-level hipster if you liked the entire season of autumn before it was mainstream.

One thing I’ll never understand about comics- old superhero comics especially- is why so many words seem to be bold and italic at random.

Marvel Preview #7 (1976) - Rocket Raccoon’s first appearance (Part 2)

Alrighty then, I promised actual ring-tailed bandit-masked action, so here he is: Rocket appears on-panel for the first time ever!

The first thing you’ll notice is that “Rocky” has a cheesy posh English accent. Rocket basically started out as a walking, talking Beatles reference. Although why he doesn’t have a Liverpool accent I can’t say- I guess I can’t expect many people to tell the difference.
If you’re not familiar with the Beatles song in question, I suggest you give it a listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbq-8FYpYPo

Marvel Preview #7 (1976) - Rocket Raccoon’s first appearance

Wanted to check out Rocket’s backstory, so I sought out some scans of his original comic book appearances- the ones from the ’70s and ’80s anyway.
Considering the nature of this first one, I think I’m allowed to make snarky commentary, don’t you?

I’m waiting for the day when Rocket Raccoon’s comic book appearance doesn’t scream “I’ve never seen a real raccoon in my life and had to have them described to me”.

WARNING - LOUD NOISES AHEAD TURN DOWN YOUR VOLUME

Took me a loooooooooooooooong time to put in all of those glitchs and screams. Thank god it’s done. (to be honest this was just an excuse to mess around with glitches and audio so two in one!)

ENJOY!

Great stuff!
If I ever come up with a script for a full show, would you consider playing Chica? I’ve already recorded one for Foxy:

Five Nights at Freddy’s headcanons

I don’t normally do this, but since the game’s so open to interpretation, ideas just seemed to form naturally.

The murder and disappearance of the children is what caused things to go wrong. The evil of the act altered what were originally just highly sophisticated robots (since they can leave the stage at will). I.e. the restaurant was now haunted.
I don’t think the children themselves are haunting the animatronics, although the full-length scream sound effect lends some credibility to this theory. Since the extra sets of teeth are only mechanical, I don’t think the children or anyone else is actually inside any of the main four.
Initially it appears that the characters just have faulty programming, but later events such as moving objects and changing posters show that there’s more going on.

During the day, Freddy is a showman. As the leader of the group and the smartest, he’s the most concerned about making the show entertaining. That’s why when he learns about Mike, he gets angry at him for appearing without his suit on. He also seems to possess the most supernatural abilities.

Foxy was responsible for the “Bite of ‘87”, soon after the murders took place. Possibly some kid got him riled and he overreacted, and he was shut down afterward to prevent further incidents.
Originally cast as the antagonist, Foxy resents not being able to interact with the customers for so many years, and takes it out on anyone he encounters.

Chica is cast as the Big Eater- hence the bib- and is probably always hungry for pizza during shows. This translates to an animalistic appetite and personality, which is why she spends a lot of time in the kitchen. She’s likely to chew on anyone first before the others arrive.

Bonnie…? I got nothing.
