Premise of Commedia 2X00:

Centuries ago, Europe was entertained by the Commedia dell’Arte, improvisational comedy populated by stock characters: rich merchant Pantalone, eccentric academic Il Dottore, blustering braggart Capitano Scaramouche, their children Flavio and Isabella, and their servants the violent Pulcinella, the hapless Pedrolino, the cunning Columbina, and the manic trickster Arlecchino. Now, (4 + X) centuries in the future, the legend continues.

Having a strong sense of loyalty to his master, household servant Arlecchino volunteers to be converted to a Super Fighting Cyborg. Also, Super Fighting Cyborgs are awesome. It is a tale as old as time, full of romance, jealousy, betrayal, adventure, mad science, ninjas, and snarky asides to the audience. Maybe some dinosaurs too.

Commedia 2X00 is written by John Durvin. Originally from Richmond, Virginia, he received a Bachelor’s Degree Cum Laude in Sculpture & Extended Media from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2005, after which he moved to the crappiest part of Florida and entered into a successful career in entry-level office supply sales and logistics. His hobbies when not busy writing and drawing this very comic include novel-writing, culling Wikipedia for trivia, collecting hideous and peculiar home furnishings and objets d’art, retro gaming, and writing about himself in the third person. (For more details, check out his more pointless life-based webcomic, Factoid Fist) If looking at his creative endeavors is not enough for you, you may also hear his musical works at Soundcloud.

And if fictional video games, animated gifs, and flagrant copyright violation are your thing, check out his gradually expanding manual to a non-existent game at Super Pwnzorfaust. It’s [idiosyncratic neologism for extremely good]!!!
