Re: "Strip Games" Discussion

Hey, you guys remember how people sent in fan-made photos based on comic #249 and comic #305? The photos people send in for this one should be... interesting. Or creepy as hell. Oh, and for those who haven't seen it, there's a webcomic of the decade poll: http://voices.washingtonpost.com/comic-riff...
