A recap comic. Everyone – fans and Shawn alike – faulted me for doing too many of these. They don’t advance the story, they just rephrase it.
They’re probably right, but I remain unrepentant.
On the one hand, this comic is largely unnecessary. On the other hand, there are a few amusing bits. I’m also once again reminded that I wish I had done the fantasy segments in a sketchier style. I think it would have worked well. Ah well.

Yes, this game is loud, crude, childish, and stupid. But it it knows what it wants to be and nails it. And that's admirable.
There's a wonderful way to balance difficulty in RPGs, and designers try to prevent it. For some reason.
Even allegedly smart people can make life-changing blunders that seem very, very obvious in retrospect.
Another PC Golden Age?
Is it real? Is PC gaming returning to its former glory? Sort of. It's complicated.
