    This is amazing, but when I saw the first panel I was hoping the second panel would be Gabe & Tycho but drawn realistically. I think that would be even better.

    I can't look away.

    Something about Mike's face reminds me of Butt-head (of Beavis and Butt-head).

    That's the retina display icon, I believe.

    I really hope this one has a video associated with it. You can just hear the two of them and their whole crew cracking up as Mike draws this.

    I mean no offense to Mike and Jerry about this, but this reminds me so much of Beavis and Butthead. I think it's how the eyes are drawn.

    Am I wrong?

    My reaction to the second panel:



    Quite possibly Mike's magnum opus.

    I came here just to say that. And someone else had already done it.

    It's awesome - it reminds me of Ren & Stimpy when they would cut to a super detailed closeup of something in a more realistic style.

    They use to have a strict rule to never draw their real selves but they caved at PAX. Only a matter of time before they did this in the comic and the Retina Display (Which looks disturbed) is the perfect excuse.

    This explains why gabe's hair is so big. Compensating for dat nose.

    There must be a print made of the second panel. And it must have signed limited editions.

    Jerry's slimmer than that, recently. Judging by PATV anyway.

    I *must* have a 2048x2048 image of the last panel, as an iPad wallpaper... must have....

    Mike I don't know if you deliberately exaggerated your caricature for comedic effect, but you're far more handsome than this.

    My sister was in town last weekend, and since I am the only person in this family who is on speaking terms with technology, she wanted to know what kind of computer she should get. Her old one is old. It has become recalcitrant. It cannot or will not web as it once did. It was a very strange conversation, because it’s becoming very clear that for ninety-five percent of usage cases NOBODY needs a computer. She could just as easily have asked me what kind of Anvil she should get.

    Invariably, the Blacksmiths in the audience are going to pipe up, their hammer levered over their shoulder, apron covered in the accumulated work of the forge, and say that anvils are the best. But I’m not saying that nobody needs one, I’m saying that almost nobody needs one. I am never bringing a computer anywhere, ever again: I have a wireless keyboard, and the case for this iPad lets it stand with the vigor of a Private at muster. It won’t pair with my “mighty mouse,” but that’s an artifact of the Jobsian era, and should be remedied forthwith.

    Jerry is like a shark.

    Are you really being aggressive about the words I chose to use in a sentence to compliment someone?

    Are you really?

    He is saying bald guy in panel one is clearly based on Jerry, and goatee guy in panel three is supposed to be Mike.
