    Stable Diffusion is the one you have to use to effectively rip off artists, from what I understand.

    I think it might be from a lot of people are asking the AI for "Loab" and it's now associated this woman with just requesting an AI-generated picture in general.

    Garbage in, garbage out.

    Oh. I had thought this was a PA joke, but apparently it's a reference to a real thing.

    I think I see Gabe in there, fused with a cosmic horror, a extradimentional lord, the DogMan, and a failed genetic experiment.

    I'm pretty sure there is more than one webcomic whose humor stems from random, bizarre scenery intermixed with philosophical dialogue that goes nowhere.

    Gabe has been more careful than anyone I know, he's still retained many talismanic practices I have softened on, at least in my own neighborhood - but one of the ways your world is trash is that kids at school will bully you if you wear a mask until you take it off and get COVID. And then your dad takes care of you, and he gets it. At home! At fucking home. In the end, he got it at home. When I talked with him before it really took hold, he suggested the call had come from inside the house.

    :(

    Somehow I'd missed the Kris had signed this (and therefore drawn it) until reading the post. He really did a bangup job at mimicking Mike's style (or within Mike's experimenting sphere). Which makes sense, given that it had to have an actual PA strip panel in the middle and doing it in a different style would just have a lot of people confused.

    Also, even before Jerry basically wrote it, I thought, "oh, Kris was involved, no wonder this haunted AI Art cryptid was the topic."

    Tycho's intention to replace Gabe with an AI (and the strip of two days ago) are even funnier given that he brought in a ringer (we shan't use the hateful nickname) to replace sick Mike.
