    I don't know WTF the hot dog fairy is but it's making me hungry. Magically.

    Kinda love the title in this one.

    Feel that the art syle is a bit off (not in the sense of bad, but different).

    I think this may be from the PAX panel? Would explain the different font and art.

    I want a hot dog fairy tat now. This probably says bad things about me.

    I imagine Tycho speaking in the voice of a typewriter or a dot matrix printer.

    The fairy reminds me of the one from the FFXI strip about the old way servers used to work.

    For some reason, Mike's laptop didn't have the font installed. He even went to Blambot at one point in order to buy it, but that didn't pan out for some reason.

    Be thankful they went against the audience suggestion of Comic Sans.

    Mike went to go buy the fonts, but then realized that a couple thousand people would see his credit card info, hence the alt text.

    Hmm, if there is alt-text on the actual comic page, it's not working for me in Chrome.

    Comic doesn't have alt text. I think he meant just alternate font.

    I can only guess that the bright change in art style is a result of Gabe's newfound forbidden romance with Apple/Charles... Whatever the case, that hotdog spriteling looks quite fuckable... TychoDelves.png

    Necks... it's all about necks...

    Personal Quote: "I stare into the void as her molted carapace unfurls, her soaking thorax begging for my gentle touch... and she whispers: "krev unda xcryu!!!". Her slender neck riddled with eggsacks and vestigial maws beckons for my tender head, but what is that I see? Tis a hedgehog, nested upon one of her seven shoulder, her quills beckon for me as well. I now surrender myself as I am filled with countless fertilized eggs and my hands grace the spiky sensuous quills... Yes, yes - a thousand times yes..."

    Someone could have easily switched off the main screens, but better safe than sorry.

    Wingdings were suggested, along with Papyrus. Mike put his foot down this year and denied a request for ponies.

    Is that the watch that I see on gabes wrist?

    This was put in due to a request from the audience.

    Also amusing: Tycho had "BEHOLD" written in the script with no punctuation, and Gabe openly defied Tycho's request/demand to keep it unpunctuated. Tycho: "It'll work, man! Just go with it!"

    But... Gabe can't be wearing The Watch! I won it from Tycho in a backroom poker game! In lieu of ten thousand dollars!

    I don't know why I never noticed it before, but has Gabe always had that gap in his teeth?

    Actually that's semi new. In the panel it was described as part of the evolving style....

    Before I read this, I assumed it was a PAX Pox comic.

    In which case I needed one of those tubes.

    It was fun to watch them draw this.

    If anyone else wants to see the creation, the stream is up on twitch.tv/pax

    I forget which video it is, but the duration is 10 hours, so you can just click around and find it - the panel starts around 33 minutes in, I think?

  • KalTorakKalTorak Registered User regular
    Did anyone record Khoo's panel? I'm really curious about that one.

    I was hoping people wouldn't even make the request, but still presumed it would probably be inevitable. They drew it two PAXes in a row, I say give something else a chance.

    As much of a pony fan as I am, Hotdog Fairy is way way better anyway.

    This story is funnier to me than the comic.
