this comic is subtitled "maybe trap books just send you to the 90s."

i know that most of the main actors were the people who worked on the planning and programming of the games, but still. even playing just one minor role, like one of the people who looks through the peephole on their door in that village in Riven, would be so great.

also, is it just me, or does the guy who plays Saavedro in Myst 3 look kind of like an older Chris Kattan?


it's true, they have some pretty wicked Pokemon toys in Happy Meals at the McDonald's. i've already got a couple Woobats, a Pikachu, and a Servine, and i'm hoping to get the rest before they switch to Ice Age toys.

i've actually had the idea of using "the hopelist" in my webcomic brewing in my head for at least a year. at first, i thought about having it be a pseudo-magical object, the songs on which were unidentifiable even when looking up lyrics on the internet, but decided against it.

i may post a tracklist or potential tracklist for the hopelist in the future, but i don't have it ready today, i'm sorry.

honestly, i have trouble thinking of a better place to be than in a car at night with friends, singing your hearts out to "Blister in the Sun" by the Violent Femmes.

and then, when the song gets quiet, everyone drops down to a whisper, and the car becomes, for a split second, completely silent. eventually the vocals come back in, and you and your friends just shout out the words as loud as you can, and everything is real and magical and perfect.

i really like these comics right now because they're weirdly serious and emotional. if you're missing the usual silliness, don't worry, i'll be getting back to that pretty soon.

sorry this one's a little diagonal, i've been having some scanner issues lately.

i felt sort of weird writing this comic, since it references Clem's car, The Ocelot, and it's been like years since that car was talked about by name, and maybe even at all. also i kind of really like how these last few comics and the next few comics coming up are turning out. i feel they're well written and i'm pretty proud of them

also i think i've been losing some definition in my scanning of these last few comics? i'm sorry about that and i'll look into it.
