[Interpretations: Guest Artist Week]

[Comic for Thursday, November 14, 2002]

Today's strip comes courtesy of loyal Faultie Kevin Gadd. I originally had another artist slated for this spot, but when he unfortunately couldn't participate, Kevin stepped in with this completely unsolicited entry. Despite what the comic claims, I think it's exceedingly funny... and that's why it's up on the site right now. I won't do incredible harm to Kevin's mail server by putting his e-mail address up here, so make sure to let him know what you think of us strip through our message board.

Transcription

{{The comic initially appears as three panels, each showing a screenshot of a text terminal RPG a la Rogue or NetHack. After a few seconds, the dialog boxes pop up, and then the blue screen. This comic created by Kevin Gadd.}}
[[A typical Rogue
Moria
NetHack screenshot]]
[[Nick gets eaten by a grue]]

[[A Windows 95-style dialog box]]
[[The cartoonist makes fun of himself for making such a bad comic]]

[[Another Windows 95-style dialog box]]
[[Windows confirms the cartoonist has been flogged]]

[[A typical Windows bluescreen, somewhat a hybrid of the Win3.x and WinNT styles]]
Blue Screen: THE COMIC REALLY ISN'T FUNNY AT ALL
