Stolen Pixels #20:Not All Change is Progress

This is an unusual one. It’s probably the first & last single-panel comic I’ll ever make for Stolen Pixels. This is also one of those rare cases where I regret my overly verbose style. I wanted to show as much of the image as possible, and I pruned the text as much as I could, but in the end I really had to obscure a lot of it to make my point.

When you’re making screencap comics, it can sometimes be a bit hard to make fun of a game you refuse to buy. Since they’re even charging for the Spore demo, I thought I was going to be left without the means to mock the game. Then I discovered that the various videos in the ever-present ad campaign provided me with all the tools I needed.
