Okay, so...I've been wanting to write a parody of Ctrl+Alt+Del's infamous miscarriage comic for the longest without actually making fun of people who have had them. (I'm trying to be sensitive about it.) I've had several ideas that (while I found them funny) are kinda wrong. Well, I kept missing my opportunities to do one until now. This egg has been planned since the Triangle arc. (Hell, I wrote this comic towards the end of its run as well as this commentary.)

With the egg planned this far in advance, I had an opportunity to plan out a Ctrl+Alt+Del parody comic and this is what I came up with. I guess I forgot to write a joke. Har har har.

Well, it was inevitable. Usually it's an edit of other strips, but this works too.

Editing seemed kinda lazy to me...at least to use for a webcomic. If you're just wanting to post it somewhere online, it's fine.

Instead, I wanted to try and copy the "art style" of the original comic.

What you tried to do is very hard to pull of considering people will find any reason to call it offensive. Given the wordlessness of the other three panels, I think you pulled it off nicely.

You are right on one thing though: Ctrl+Alt+Del is an outdated, crappy comic. I'd put Penny-Arcade up there with them.

I don't know how Penny Arcade is now, but it used to be good.

Edit: And as I said in the commentary, the original script for this was a little mean spirited. I don't remember what I wrote for it (since it was a while back), but yeah...I am very glad I rewrote it.
