Title: Guest appearances
Post by: Carl-E on 26 Nov 2010, 01:22
I've looked through the last 10 pages of threads (about a year and a half), and I couldn't find a thread dedicated to this topic - there were a few individual instances, but I thought there was a thread I could resurrect.  So maybe it's time to make one? 

At any rate, check out what's selling at Shortpacked! (http://www.shortpacked.com/2010/comic/book-12/05-neww-2010-comics/prime/)

PC World gave those models a two-star rating - a "DO NOT BUY WILL CAUSE PHYSICAL DAMAGE" recommendation.

...And is that Jeph in the background of panel two?
Title: Re: Guest appearances
Post by: Carl-E on 26 Nov 2010, 07:08
Kinda short for Jeph, but it could be.  After all, Willis can only draw a certain number of people before he (http://www.itswalky.com/d/19970908.html) repeats (http://www.joyceandwalky.com/) himself (http://www.shortpacked.com/)...

Davan and Nancy of Something Positive, strip 511.
Amy and Shelley of Scary Go Round, strip 519.
Title: Re: Guest appearances
Post by: jwhouk on 26 Nov 2010, 16:17
Oh, there's MUCH more. Especially during the Speed Beer arc.

EDIT: Let's see if I can track these down...
(This list obviously does NOT include guest strips, by the way.)

Anyone who wants to help out with some of the others, feel free.

EDIT: I'm not entirely sure who Jeph was talking about in 1246. I still say the third panel looks more like Danielle and Randy...
Title: Re: Guest appearances
Post by: Carl-E on 27 Nov 2010, 18:24
Actually, I was thinking more the other way 'round, appearances by QC characters in other strips. 

And I finally found the thread I meant to resurrect (http://forums.questionablecontent.net/index.php/topic,23985.0.html).  I don't think there's a way to merge the two, though.

Kim from Dresden Codak was also on IRC with Pintsize and his AnthroPC friends, than tweeted at Marten about it.  Later, she and Hanners had a lengthy Twitter exchange.

Sort of.

Looing at that, I can't tell if Hanners is delighted, or freaking out.  I'd argue for delighted, but that seems so un-Hanners-like.

Just posting to point out that the Vertigo comic 'House of Mystery' has a back up feature this month (I picked mine up yesterday) in which the character is watching a building collapse from inside Coffee of Doom and Marten and Faye are in panel on the sidewalk.  Gene Ha must be a fan.

OK, this one's a stretch...

Shortpacked has been in a coffeehouse for the last three days.  Today, we see a bit more of it - the wall color, the plant by the door, the chalkboard (http://www.shortpacked.com/2011/comic/book-13/04-remedial-adulthood/togo/)...

They've been in CoD before, too!

Title: Re: Guest appearances
Post by: wrwight on 06 Oct 2011, 08:27
random comment about that comic: I love the perspective in the last panel. Anyway, yeah, I think CoD is a stretch, especially since his mug doesn't have a face on it.
Title: Re: Guest appearances

That's almost 100% CoD.
Title: Re: Guest appearances
Post by: pwhodges on 06 Oct 2011, 15:02
There's a comic with Marten, Faye and Dora in Coffeeright Theft (http://www.shortpacked.com/2006/comic/book-2-pulls-the-drama-tag/06-the-drama-tag/groundhog/); I think it's a version of CoD myself.  There's a blackboard (even though unused), and the walls are the right colour.  And the line: "We pay extra to be hated"!
Title: Re: Guest appearances
Post by: wrwight on 06 Oct 2011, 21:16
hmm, interesting. I didn't read Shortpacked back then (and still haven't gone back to read the archives). I suppose it's likely that it's a tribute to CoD, just kind of an alternate universe version.

Resurected (again).  (Re-resurrected?  For this thread, re-re-re-resurrected!) 

Jeph did a Weregeek guest strip today (http://www.weregeek.com/2012/03/21/).  He mentioned it in the newspost. 

The guy far right in the last panel looks like Marten, but I'm pretty sure it's Jeph's take of one of Weregeek's protagonists. 

You draw what you know, after all!

I'm not sure if Overbeck was aware, but a technology like this already exists, though it's quite basic at this stage. It's known as beaming (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-17905533).

AAANNNNDDD, I just sifted through the better part of the 150-strip Quiltbag archive to find the permalink for this (http://quiltbag.keenspot.com/d/20111227.html).  Quiltbag is a spinoff, a separate storyline from Penny & Aggie proper.
