Hey Mama Mama 1 by VanHeist Hey Mama Mama 1 by VanHeist

This here is parts 1 and 2 of a short story I had intended to finish for Mother's Day. There's quite a bit more to it already finished and ready to go, but in the spirit of the holiday, I'll stick ya with this teaser and assault ya with the rest of it in a mass upload later rather than peel it off piece by piece :P

Anyhow, this is a sweeping, heartfelt saga about maternal love, sibling rivalry, prejudice, and hams. A TRIUMPH....of the human--and sort-of-human--spirit. Totally. It's so great.

On a side note, you may well be saying "Great, another story arc. You still have TWO other arcs you left dangling, dudebro. Get on that." To which I reply "I didn't forget. I'm just in love with throwing too many irons into the fire, silly!" At any rate, just enjoy this for now, and I'll be striving to tie up loose ends as fast as I can :)

peace! :salute:

and again....Happy Mother's Day :D

Is there a place to read this as a webcomic?
qwerty2999 Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2014
You know I think Andy's Mom might be half-right with the volcano thing, though not the Hulk part...I'm not kidding, from what I'v gathered she MAY have been born somehow via a volcano, or at least one active one had SOMETHING to do with her birth, that's what I think anyway.

Checking the archives, I came across Mrs. Fisher's original design. You really have been making edits and alterations to the secondary characters and I LOVE IT. XD

Who the hell is the brute here? Here is Gogo being civil and nice ( and looking mighty fine doing it ) and even though those Gogo-biceps looks like they should have their own area-code, Andy-mom is a down right jerk.
Connan-Bell Featured By Owner May 15, 2014   Traditional Artist
One of the few instances where Gogo is perfectly civil and yet someone STILL reacts strongly to her. ...not that it's completely unjustified, but still.

Nice update here dudebro! Can't wait for the next update dudebro. Take care dudebro.

lol Andy's last line.

Hahaha! Such a great comic! and wow, the guns on gogo
effigytormented Featured By Owner May 13, 2014
Am I the only that ever wondered why Andy's training has never really paid off?  Dude must be rather strong by now?
VanHeist Featured By Owner May 13, 2014
He's got a much better core these days. Less visible, but good stamina :XD:
effigytormented Featured By Owner May 13, 2014
Ah yes, long muscle as opposed to thick muscle, I too am built like that.  We're built for endurance, not raw strength.
BookofSand Featured By Owner May 13, 2014
So this begs the question, how tall is Gogo?
HigeKunI Featured By Owner May 14, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I would say as tall as an average door or maybe even taller since she is leaning while walking in (panel 3) and her head almost touches the top of the doorway.
VanHeist Featured By Owner May 13, 2014
Someone below took that one up and figured her at around 6 and a half feet (!) Which is plenty tall enough, I think.
deathsblades Featured By Owner May 13, 2014
you do have to fell sorry for Gogo she try's bing friendly with Andy's mother and she get a terrified look and traumatism walking woman
Nyysjan Featured By Owner May 13, 2014
Poor Gogo, panel 6 is really heartbreaking

Andy's mom! :heart:

... Fun for Andy to see what his giant monster-friend looks like from other people's point of view, eh?
Battlion55 Featured By Owner May 12, 2014
Aw COME ON! She ain't that bad.
cmmdrsigma Featured By Owner May 12, 2014
Andy's ma is scared because ZOMG those are the biggest jugs EVAH attached to a woman more heavily muscled than Chuck Norris, and she is worried about Andy's judgement (and survival).
Battlion55 Featured By Owner May 13, 2014
Hah! Could be true.
Hiroyuki456 Featured By Owner May 12, 2014
It's odd how denigrating Andy's mother is to Gogo, Given how she has never really interacted with her. Also, I fail to see how Gogo can smell as bad as she says, as she's not exactly covered in grime and/or filth as would be needed smell like a monkey... But w/e. Great art, my man! Glad to see that you're doing ok after your recent  housing issues!

Funny/Fun fact. Tigers are actually less likely to attack Humans than other big cats. We're not normally on their prey scale. Here use this…

That said enjoyable start for this.

I can't help feel a bit for Gogo here.  Horrible reputation, yes, very much so, but all she did was open the door and say hello.  Of course I could just really be reading too much into her expression in the sixth panel.  But it still must be lonely, having people be afraid of you and retreating in horror everywhere you go whether you're trying to intimidate them or not.
LonelyImmortal Featured By Owner May 12, 2014 I the only one who LOVED the paperless billing thing?  A certain credit card company (too paranoid to name them, I've had my number with them stolen TWICE) is the worst.  They bugged the piss out of me to go paperless back when I carried a balance with them.  And now that I am again, they're like "well you didn't mail us checks for your payments for a long time, so we'll grudgingly send you a paper statement, but no ENVELOPE, BITCH!

NEVER MIND that I didn't mail them checks for a long time because I didn't have a BALANCE with them for a long time!
PERKELE!!!!!  p... 

Anyway....can't wait to see more. something different about Andy's mom?  Thought she had shorter brown hair before
CMVreud Featured By Owner May 12, 2014
Somehow I think a session of FEMALE bonding would not achieve results.
At least not the desired.
... and then Gogo goes on a testosterone rampage to the nearest bar, plays pool, drinks beverages, starts a barfight, finishes a barfight as last man- sorry, WO-man standing and decides to let Didi do that female bonding stuff in the future.
Ast0815 Featured By Owner May 12, 2014
Is it just me or is Gogo getting burlier and burlier?

Anyway, looking forward to the story. ^^

Happy Hams'day =P :devilish:

'Two, three girls tops.' Well, that may explain why we see a suspicious lack of female bullies in the region (apart from possibly Andy's sister, who is excused on behalf of being related to Andy and therefore devouring her for her size would make him moderately displeased, which would be annoying for Gogo)!

Heh. In all seriousness, I really like this teaser, and I've gotten all hyped up for the rest of it!

It's interesting; some of the most interesting aspects of your series here is just how totally ordinary people react to the weirdness that follows Gogo around and is engendered by her very existence. (As opposed to those brave souls like Andy and Hector, who are part and parcel of it, and for that matter Didi is TECHNICALLY a part of that madness too, but she's a lot better at dealing with it and, presumably, becoming a productive member of society. Gogo is more like Godzilla in that she COULD be useful for the whole of society by pummeling things that are in need of pummeling.)

Wait, that got off-track a bit. Hee. IT's funny, but one of the most mild things about Gogo, and something that is actually quite plausible, is that she's just plain huge. And seems to be getting bigger and bigger as things go on; I don't know whether it's a case of your ideas for her evolving, her literally growing larger as the series goes on, or what! (For what it's worth, I like to think that its the latter. In-universe reasons are fun!) And even so, that's what Andy's mom finds the most intimidating about Gogo, even though she's being quite amiable. Well, for Gogo, anyway.

Also, it's great to see just how big Gogo actually is; it's rather helpful for my own recent issues trying to figure out the sort of height difference for a female character that isn't just straight up giant territory, and its really fun to see a female character that's just plain huge like that. (I'm willing to bet that even when Andy's grown up, he's still gonna be tiny compared to her, even without the possibility that she'll have gone full Gogojira territory by then.)

Also, when we see how big Gogo really is compared to Andy's mom HOLY SPIT ON A SIDEWALK SHE IS FLIPPING HUMONGOUS!!! And that's really cool :D

...Admittedly, Andy's mom DOES raise some good points about how dangerous Gogo seems. Who knows; maybe this is the start of her getting to know Gogo better? Be an interseting twist in character development! And for that matter, perhaps she STILL suspects that Andy and her have some kind of relationship, and the idea of Gogo's... hulkiness in combination with her son gives her the spookies.

I'm hyped up for this new plotline :)

I sometimes imagine what would happen if Gogo ever had the traditional attitude of a dragon...
VanHeist Featured By Owner May 12, 2014
Like, plunder and hoard?
Hyenaworks Featured By Owner May 12, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
A Gogo's hoard would be a sight to see!
VanHeist Featured By Owner May 12, 2014
"This used to be a thriving supermarket. Now these aisles, this once-proud deli, the bakery department...all is now the desolation of Gogo..."
Hyenaworks Featured By Owner May 12, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Is she sleeping under a pile of deli meats?
