The GPF site will undergo routine, scheduled maintenance this Thursday, June 27th, from 10pm to midnight EDT (2am to 4am UTC on Friday the 28th). A two-hour window has been scheduled for this event, but it will hopefully not take that long. During this maintenance, the site will not be available and will appear offline. Due to the timing, there is a chance that Friday's scheduled comic update may be delayed. We apologize in advance for this inconvenience.

[Comic for Wednesday, June 18, 2014]

Transcription

[[Back in the old junkyard's office, Socrates has concluded his narration. But Patty isn't finished listening.]
Patty: [arms crossed, skeptical] That's an unpleasant little story, but none of it explains how you and Fred came to be on Earth...
Socrates: Actually, I was just getting to that...

Socrates: We finally managed to decipher some of the enemy's genetic manipulation "technology" and began experimenting on our own kind. We were hoping to find a workaround for our "linking curse".

Trish: Y-you mean your inability to b-breed once you "l-linked" with another s-species?
Socrates: Precisely. It was a difficult challenge and there were... mistakes... but...

Socrates: He was our first true success. Locked within Fred's genes is the hope of our entire future: the ability to both link AND perpetuate our species at the same time.
