[Interpretations II: Guest Artist Week]

[Comic for Wednesday, November 16, 2005]
[Comic for Wednesday, November 16, 2005]

Today's guest comic is kind of special, as it comes from an extremely loyal Faultie who I hand-picked to provide a strip. Best known to our forumites as "Unit Suqared," he's also the evil mastermind behind the Comic Genesis comic if then else. He is also the caretaker of the Faultie Circuit, the only currently semi-active GPF fan site. And if you hadn't already guessed, yep, that's supposed to be me in the bottom right panels. See if you can name all the other online comics he's referenced!

Dang it. Now I'll have the "Quantum Leap" theme music stuck in my head all day....


[[Nick sitting in the MUTEX, helmet on]]
Narration: Theorizing that one could transverse parallel dimensions in the comic world, Nicholas Wellington plugged into the MUTEX . . . and vanished.

[[Nick looks into a mirror to see the reflection is of Torg from Sluggy Freelance]]
He woke to find himself trapped in other comics, facing mirror images that were not his own.

[[Nick is now Zortic from the comic by the same name, standing next to Zoie]]
And driven by an unknown force to change plots and character development for the better.

[[Nick is now Tedd from El Goonish Shive, sitting on Tedd's favorite couch, Grace's head leaning on his shoulder, a hologram of Fred on his other shoulder]]
Narrator: His only guide on his journey is Fred, an observer from his own dimension, who appears in the form of a hologram that only Nick can see and hear.

[[Four panels in succession, with Nick appearing as different characters, in the order of: Gav from Nukees, Alex from Help Desk, Warren from Absurd Notions, and Monica from Wapsi Square]]
And so Wellington finds himself jumping from comic to comic, striving to put right what was wrong and hoping each time that his next jump will be the jump home.

[[Nick "leaps" into the body of Ralphie from Melonpool]]
Melonpool: Ralphie! Your older self just showed up in the V.W. bug!
Nick: Oh boy...

[[Title Screen, with fonts very similar to "Quantum Leap"]]
Quantum Geek

[[Nick stands in a plaid shirt with a T-shirt underneath, waving his hand with little blue sparkles dancing around his fingers]]

[[Holo-Fred sits on a window sill with a hat on his "head" and a "Ziggy remote" in his "hand"]]

[[A Bedroom, Jeff Darlington sits up with a woman (presumably Jeff's wife) lying next to him with her head on a pillow]]
Jeff: GAH!
Woman: Hun, were you dreaming about GPF again?

[[Side profile Jeff with bedroom window in background]]
Jeff: Ugh. Yeah. Parodies, mostly. It's as if someone else is giving me new ideas to use.
