References: “a software QA engineer walks into a bar…” joke
Setting: inside the bar.
Heidi: Zhang, you're not supposed to QA the whole world.
Zhang: I just wanted to try this classic joke for real.
Max: I know that one, aren't you forgetting something?
Zhang: I'm a bit scared, but if you insist…

Adil: I'm not even sure I want to understand this joke…

An old-school RSS feed is available with the latest comics and news. Find some RSS reader thing and give it the URL, if you don't want to have to poll this page for updates yourself. I might look into setting up push message notifications. Until then, a simple reminder in your calendar on Tuesday and Friday will be easiest.

If the strips appear jagged, try the ‘crisp rendering’ toggle. See the About page for more info about this, the swipe/scroll navigation, and comments.
Coming soon: some way to jump to the beginning of a specific story arc.
