New Kids on the Block #4

(219 votes, average 4.87 out of 5)

Mark Wahlberg WAS a member of New Kids on the Block - just very briefly and apparently never officially recorded anything with them when he was with them.

    Is it sad that I know about Mark Wahlberg from Antiques Roadshow? (Why, yes, I did watch television with my parents for much of my life.)

    Hopeless...Claus. Ow. That was such a bad pun that it physically hurt.

    Sweet Rassilon, the "comedy" in this comic is on par with what fanfic writers think is funny.

    Sorry, you have the wrong Mark Walberg.

    still, that Mark Walberg could be a bit better as Nathan Drake.

    Goodness, you're right. Sorry. XD (If English was a logical language, the pronunciation of "Walberg" and "Wahlberg" would be different. -headdesk-)

    I remember back in high school trying to sing an NKOTB song to impress a girl. Surprisingly it worked, but she had a boyfriend so nothing came of it. She's now married to her high school sweetheart. Goddammit NKOTB!!

    There is nothing wrong or shameful about watching "Antiques Roadshow" (or History detectives or Nova Science Now or Frontline or Rick Bayless Frontera Grill) with your parents!

    Oh please, you think Antiques Roadshow is sad? How about Huell Howser 's "California's Gold," or "CA-li-FOR-nia's gooold"? XD

    Speaking of Harvey comics, I want to know what Linkara thinks of their BACK TO THE FUTURE comics.

    THAT Mark Wahlberg! PBS watcher? I start laughing every time I see a commercial on there with that guy! (I'm also guilty of watching TV with the parents on occasion, lol)

    How odd, I thought it was only Marky Mark's brother who was in it and Marky Mark was in Menudo or something.

    But the real question: Was Marky Mark ever in the NKOTB cartoon? If not, it doesn't count.

    Geeze, and I thought Twilight Fans were obsessive, at least they don't have tracking satilites on thier vans.

    you seemed to get angry and yell more in this comic than others. well it seemed more stupid than bad, so it was probably to make the review more interesting. and it did.
    also rhyming linkara ftw

    I knew Donnie Wahlberg, Mark's brother, was in NKOTB, but I had no idea Marky Mark (which I will always call him until the day I die) was!

    Good Lord, I remember my cousin's room being plastered with New Kids Posters all over it, leaving no piece of wall uncovered... AND MY COUSIN IS A DUDE. Guess that explains why he manages a Banana Republic now, huh?
  • Nyar  - Yes it was Donnie.

    And he ended up being the crazy naked guy who shots Bruce Willis at the begining of The Sixth Sense...

    My brother was similarly obsessed with the New Kids, hehe.

    You do realize that if you ever got in a conversation with Mark Wahlberg in real life and you call him Marky Mark, he will kill you right?

    Initially, Mark was part of the band, but was replaced by Jamie Kelly, who was then replaced by Joey MacIntyre.

    Great job Linkara!

    why are there more comments then ratings?

    That psycho reminds me of someone else...I'm not sure who- Wait! I've got it! Mr. Crocker from Fairly Odd Parents. The van, the technology they shouldn't have access to, the creepy obsessive personality? It's a perfect match!

    And The New Kids On The Block? I never heard their music either.

    This comic was stupid, and deservedly panned
    I myself never grasped the appeal of that band
    I could not endure any more time with those yucks
    But it's sure nice to hear you say "This Comic Sucks"

    One of my cousins was really into New Kids on the Block. I think my dad took her to one of the concerts once... though I might be wrong.

    But I have to admit I laughed at the artist's alley joke.

    God... I hate those types of fans...

    My older sister and cousin used to LOVE these guys, but I never saw anything interesting about them. I want to say it's embarassingly odd for someone to make a comic about this, but after watching so many episodes of this show,I've learned to accept EVERYTHING as potential comic books.

    I loved the review, and the rhyming was great! But who knew one comic could cause so much hate?

    Slight correction Lewis Donnie Wahlberg was in NKOTB not Mark.

    Great video still though my favorite video shown on the donation drive. =D

    There was an ANIMATED SERIES?!?!?
  • 9ansean
    Yeah, I saw the E True Hollywood story on the New Kids and appearently they had little or nothing to do with the cartoon. They complained the voice actors couldn't replicate their boston accents. After one season it was replaced in the ABC timeslot with MC Hammer's cartoon series!

    Ah yes "Hammerman"

    In the early '90s, if they were musical, popular, had a live-action TV show on NBC, or were video game related, then there was a Saturday Morning Cartoon about them. Check out the Nostalgia Critic's review of Captain N and the Super Mario Brothers Super Show.

    It's always scary when studios and the like realize that a lot of money can be made by marketing to the hundreds upon hundreds of girls who'd likely kill someone just to get close to the thing they idolize. At least there is no Hannah Montana or Jonas Brothers comic. Rather, I hope there isn't...

    All in all, that was amusing Linkara, nicely done with the rhyming.
  • DanMan
    This is a strange case of bad comics indeed.

    Nice rhyming, btw. :P
  • TheBlackMage

    2:07... so the New Kids are like the TMNT? They live in the sewer? That would certainly explain the smell...
    Oh oh oh ohhhhh... the wrong stuff.
  • GameKeeper28
    avatar
    That was the un-funniest comic ever. So many jokes and none of them even made me smile.

    I agree, "The White Stuff" is defiantly better then "The Right Stuff".
  • Semudara
    avatar
    I loved your attitude in this one! Not that you should make it the norm (if you even know what I'm talking about), but it just really made me smile. Maybe it was the Christmas cheer; it's possible that there was less bite in your voice, as you mercilessly mocked the blatant stupidity, but without any genuine fury. I just thought it was nice for a change of pace. ^_^

    Also, you're pretty good at rhyming! I know this was scripted, but still.
  • 9ansean
    I don't think the New Kids on the Block themselves would have liked this comic much more than anyone else actually. Joey in particular complained about all the idiotic products put out with their image and implied they didn't have much say about it. I especially loved his statment that there is something not right about seeing his face rolling in a marble! "When they put your face in a marble, that's when you know they've gone too far."

    Also loved Donnie's comment about how this son first learned about the band from hearing them dissed in a rap. He said it went something like this:

    "Weren't you in a group called the New Kids?

    "Year"

    "Why does he say the New Kids suck?"

    "Because we did" LOL

    Having grown up in Boston in the early 90s, I knew all too well who they were (in fact, I had the same middle school teachers as the Wahlbergs). Fandom was strictly for girls but since Greater Bostonians are a proud and loyal lot, we ALL knew their songs.

    Fanny Tweetersweet? Wow, the new kids predicted the invention of twitter nearly 20 years in advance, they have the power of prophecy! Now see if you can find out when the world will end.
  • moonloon

    Well, a "tweeter" is actually a large speaker, which makes sense... About as much sense as anything in this comic made, anyway.

    I would have to watch all previous reviews to be sure, but I think this comic it the absolute worst when it comes to writing. God, the jokes were so awful (and this is coming from a girl who really loves puns!) and every word from every character was moronic. I'm actually baffled as to how a human being actually wrote this thing.
  • sprezzatura
    avatar
    that adds a whole new creepy, annoying dimension to Fanny Tweetersweet! Just imagine the horrifying tweeting!

    God, some of those puns were just downright painful! It'd be hard to believe something this horrible could make print, but Linkara has already shown us much worse

    Awesome, a new video from Linkara!

    I actually have a New Kids on the Block album from their heyday (Hangin' Tough), and I have to say that it was far more interesting than this comic!

    Still, the review was awesome! Looking forward to the next video!

    I remember NKotB; they & MC Hammer both had a cartoon series. I like the New Kid's music, but I was more fond of Beach Boys at the time. I think Hulk Hogan had his own cartoon too; how the mighty have fallen.

    According to the Wiki, their group rebanned in 2008. I guess no one took notice.

    I was surprised that you didn't mention the new kids cartoon, which I still can't beleive that was made. Thank God there wasn't a New Kids movie, yikes.

    God I actually remembered reading this comic. So much bad I didn't even know where to start.

    Bland artowork,bland(and stupid)band,terrible overall.

    Geez even if that girl was a super-fan to something good like Nirvana or ACDC I still wouldn't like her.Creepy.

    Good review Linkara.

    The girl's a physicopath.Even a lonely fuck like me wouldn't want a girl like her.It's just freaky.

    Unless if she was Jessica Alba.Then I'd rethink it......
