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 Friday, January 23, 2015]


[[Fred and Socrates continue their discussion in the little room where Fred is trying to isolate himself from the rest of the Physarics]]
Fred: It sounds like we and "the enemy" are evenly matched. Giving them the cure now will create an imbalance that might threaten Earth. As long as that's a chance, I'm not handing it over.

Fred: ["arms" akimbo] I can't make you do anything, Socrates, but I'd much rather have you by my side. Let's figure out what's best for everybody: Us, the "enemy," the Earth. What do you say?

Socrates: [notices a crack in the wall at the back of the room] There's ... a thin fissure here. It's a tight squeeze, but we can use this to reach the next chamber without the others outside seeing us.

Socrates: Of course, eventually Plato will come in to find out what's taking us so long...
Fred: With any luck that won't be until we've had a good head start.
