20 - Don't Call Us...

Wow, 20 strips. Hard to believe.

As for commenting on the strip, I SO don't get the whole Guitar Hero and Rock Band thing. Oh I tried, believe me I tried. I bought Guitar Hero 2 (once it was on XboX of course) and tried like the devil to get interested in it. And even though the soundtrack is largely remniscent of my high school years, I just could not get into the vibe of the whole style of play. I can see why some people like it, but in my day we just played air guitar without the help of a plastic controller. Meh, to each their own.

For the people below who aren't sure about some of the characters.

  • Ratchet & Clank
  • Raz from Psychonauts
  • Rocky Balboa
  • One of the countless Unggoy grunts from Halo 1, 2, & 3
  • Stan Marsh from South Park
  • Naruto Uzumaki
  • Chewbacca
  • Jason Voorhees from the Friday the 13th films
  • The H.R. Giger alien from the ALIEN "Quadrilogy"

And just for fun, here are some other ideas I had for characters that didn't get used:

  • Stuntmutt's version of the Chief as audition 1-1-7
  • Freddy Krueger
  • Kratos (this comic was actually drawn before #19 where he was used)
  • Michaelangelo's "David"
  • The Crow
  • The Undertaker
  • Gordon Freeman
  • The MAXX
  • Marv from Sin City
