    Wow. Did someone at PAX remind them that this comic existed or something? How the hell do people remember these things.


    EDIT: I only started reading PA about three years ago, so I just assumed that this was a real 1998 strip. I don't know if it is, obviously.

    This is the earliest DNF strip in the archive:
    214693752_5Jx57-L-2.jpg

    It may have been posted somewhere else though. (Also, as I always liked to point out, this was the reaction to seeing screens in 1999.)

    Yeah I'm waiting for the lyrics to be posted before I can really make sense of it

    Jerry sounds great though, like I never really knew but that dude can sing

    And of course the lead guitarist totally fuckin' gets into it. Good on that dude!

    Well, or a subtle edit, this looks pretty close except for the facial expressions:
    214676943_97cvk-L-2.jpg

    Though the originals for those may not exist anymore. So I'm not sure which scenario is more likely.

    Edit: Gabe went to that well a lot in the early days:

    Tycho should be more indignant like "goddamn it dude suck these horse dicks"

    He's got an appointment clear across town in an hour, also for getting his dick sucked.

    The busy life of a horse. These are the good times, but the truth is the irresponsible use of hyperbole has created a horse dick sucking bubble.

    One thing he forgot to replicate:
    They didn't start using the Blambot font until March 3rd, 2003. It was Comic Sans from 1998 until then.

    Only differences I can note between the old comics and the first panel is that the computers are a slightly different shape and shade of grey. I'm guessing he actually did replicate his style from years long past.

    So yeah, holy fucking shit Gabe did one hell of a job with this one.

    Gabe's hair is also slightly more curvy in today's comic than the old one linked.

    The style is distinctly 1999-vintage, not '98. You can tell by Gabe's hair, the can-holding pose, and the computer room.
    3/31/99 - Last appearance of Gabe's short hair in profile:

    72353385.jpg


    4/7/99 - First appearance of Gabe's longer hair in profile:

    53766141.jpg

    With the hair now in place for Gabe's design, he grabs a can of whatever that is and takes up a customary position.

    5/29/00 - First appearance of new computer room:

    All of which makes me wonder if they're going to edit the comic sometime later to roll the date printed in the up to 1999, and put the font to Comic Sans like they used to have. They've made minor edits of the sort before.
