It's your fault I have this lot.
You'll find me on the shadowed stair.
I'm waiting there with ragged hair
And one-eyed stare, for no-one cares
About the nightmare you forgot.
Bookkeeper had /~Banamein critiqued by Olly at (H)CBO on /~kri#HCBO on January 23th, 2013. This page was deemed recommended due to the creativity and effort displayed in the comics. Bookkeeper has demonstrated high levels of comic-making and has created a lovable but slightly disturbing character that readers will adore reading about. The staff at (H)CBO believes that this page should be read by people interested in creating untraditional character pages or comics about their pets as an example of a high quality work.
Awesome! Now I'm working on fixing up my page using suggestions from the critique. I won't update until I have it completely coded, so until then, enjoy the new background I put up.
Yuanaan, also known as Yooyu, is king of the castle. He is kindhearted and a little squeamish about his neighbors in the Haunted Woods. This means he's an easy target.
Banamein is the sort of person who thinks that people are naturally supposed to scream all the time. No one is quite sure what he is, and they don't really want to know.
Silence is the castle cook. Being a Haunted Woods native, it takes a lot more than a creepy Mynci doll to scare her. She's a fairly nice person, so long as you don't mess with her cooking.
Welcome to Banamein's comic! I draw these when I'm feeling bored and impish at the same time.
Sorry about the sketch looming in the background of my comic, I photocopied these straight from my sketchbook and the picture on the next page was drawn dark enough that it showed up on this one.
This comic looked better in my head than it does on paper. The point is that Banamein can make his head/arms/etc. appear out of objects... in this case, in a pot of hard boiled eggs.
Who needs guards when you have Banamein to stare at people until they leave?
Yes, Banamein just threw a deadly scythe at his only fan.
Extra limbs sold seperately.
This is NOT how to advertise your Beauty Contest entry, mmm-kay?
Aha... here we finally see Silence's chef hat. She usually wears it, but I didn't put it in the earlier comics 'cause I didn't feel like drawing it. And yes, Silence (the Ruki) is a girl.
Silence: You're supposed to open it, you nitwit!
My apoligies to Deukes.
You should see what it looks like when he reads on a merry-go-round.
Had a butter knife.
Banamein's scythe beats all opponents, hands down.
Thanks for offering, but no.
Well... this is from a neoboard incident where a user nicknamed Planty recognized Banamein and he stole Planty's socks. Planty eventually got their socks back, so Banamein stole their hat instead.
Merry Christmas! Happy Birthday! Happy Easter!
Don't say things like that around Banamein!
This is from April 1, 2011 when all your pets got a disease that gave them weird growths all over. One of the cures was to pour soup on them. O.o
You might notice that Banamein wasn't in that last comic. Let's try it again WITH Banamein...
Ah, Banamein. We can't let this comic's humor get too optimistic, now can we?
I'm getting good at drawing screams.
HOW DOES THE CROWN STAY ON YUANAAN'S HEAD?! IS IT GLUED ON?
Banamein is guilty of telling the truth with intent to deceive.
What a disgusting waste of perfectly fine spaghetti sauce!
Why do you wear a hankie around your neck if you never blow your nose into it?
Quite well, apparently.
It says a lot about the Neopets website that there are a lot of official Neopian food items weirder than this.
A little late for denial.
5... 4... 3... 2...
Nothing like a handmade letter to brighten your day.
Due to an unfortunate homophone, Banamein is now hoarding brain-eating Blechys.
(It's should say "horde" not "hoard")
Why thank you, Thing.
I'll take any excuse to draw an off-panel scream.
Cutting hair is just like reaping souls, right?
Banamein will not rest until he can make up for this comic.
It's a Ninja Plushie Zombie Mynci!
Thanks for the neomail, wolvesaremylife1. Now Banamein has TWO scythes... how can we ever repay you?
Yuanaan: How about with a restraining order?
Kacheek Seek: Your doing it wrong
New story arc! Let's just see how this turns out.
The newcomer here is Elyolo, a Lutari owned by my sister ZC.
DO NOT ASK if your pet/petpet/fursona/what-have-you can be in one of my comics. The answer is no.
You're in the wrooooooong genre.
Just for the record, "banamein" is an Icelandic word meaning "cause of death." It was too cool a name to pass up, even if I didn't know how to pronounce it. I spent two years calling him "bana-meen.
Why did Banamein throw his scythe at his fan and shred his fanmail?
Because he's immature, inconsiderate, and waaaay too eager to hit things with his scythe.
You should paint Banamein with a Zombie Paint Brush.
There's three reasons I won't do this. 1) Myncis can't be painted zombie yet. 2) I can't afford one. 3) This way I can keep him as my active pet and scare people on the neoboards.
Can Banamein see out of his button eye?
*scratches head* Uh... next question, please.
HE HAS NO ELBOWS!!!
I know that. What's your point?
Banamein is awesome, how did you make him?
Snips and snails and puppy entrails, that's what Banameins are made of.
If you send a neomail for or about Banamein, please tell me whether or not I can leave your username on. If you don't tell me, I'll leave you anonymous.
*jumps out from behind a bush and hands you a stone tablet...looks both ways...dives back in* You read the tablet and discover that it says: "I love Banamein!! PS: This is so that my fan mail does not get scythed and can be treasured forever *heart**heart**heart* ~lizzy_beth_750551
*sneakily hands you a letter* The letter says, "I love your Banamein comics! You should always keep making them. " *paints self invisible to avoid any scythes that may or may not come flying towards me* ~athena_thegoddess
I'll keep making 'em if people keep reading 'em. By the way, painting yourself invisible doesn't mean you can't get hit by scythes... }:D
You are a great artist. When I tried to draw him just to see if I can mess up my own drawing, (I'm HORRIBLE at drawing and I was bored) it looked like Lupe. It also looked like a girl. O.o I was like, "Yay!! I messed up another picture! Now all I need to mess up is Mona Lisa...." (Um...You didn't hear anything about messing up Mona Lisa) *hands letter to you in private, so Banamien won't come and shred the paper up* ~wolvesaremylife1
Just waaaiiitt a minute.... YUANAAN IS A BOY?! He looks sooo much like a girl. o____________o Now about a months worth of knowledge on Yuanaan is ruined. Pfff.
He must be a bishounen or something.
Banamein is awesome!!! Because Banamein is so awesome, I got him.... A THIRD SCYTHE! Except this one is pink! *huggles Banamein* *ducks beneath the Scythes* ~taylorrulez353123
Wow, just what he needed. How can we ever thank you enough?
I'm a huge fan of banamein and his comics! I think I'm going to give him a fourth scythe, but in green! That way he can juggle three and have one in his tail, ready to strike! Keep up the great work! Hugs from Neko ~maneki_neko
For those of you who've always wondered how the Banamein comics would look in color... thank you, Katrina.
Because some of you, for some reason, want to come back to this page. Are you guys out of your minds?!
You are traveling through another dimension...
