Yoshi's mother originally had very little to do with the comic - her appearance changed distinctly a few times. Originally she was a pure white Yoshi, then a weird-looking black/white fusion, before I finally settled on this. The more I work with it, the more comfortable I am with her appearance, so I guess that helps.
This is the first time I've really written anything particularly interesting for her to say, however, and I have to say it's promising. Maybe I could try and find some new places in the story for her...?
Yoshi's also coming across as far more intelligent this time around, though that isn't really saying much. I think it works better - having him as a blind idiot doesn't allow me to make as many jokes, after all.
