Press Start


David deserves a lot of credit for getting this one done.  It may not seem like a lot of work, but getting from the conceptual point to this was a massive undertaking.  If you were unaware, the strip parallels the actual God of War video game fairly close.

Yes, this strip is filled with lots of grammar jokes that only nerds will appreciate.  We prefer to think of it as possibly a fun way to teach kids grammar, which of course, seems to be in clear contradiction to our last strip where we mocked “learning is fun” ideas.
