August 12th, 2016

Thought of another way to celebrate the 10th anniversary of PrtSc Land! @ 10:06 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: nostalgic nostalgic

So, as I vaguely said in my previous entry, I still haven't even started making a remake of PrtSc Land even though I'd always said I wanted to starting on the 10th or 12th or 15th or (some other nice number)th anniversary of it - and I'd always been hoping that it would be the tenth anniversary, specifically.

But there is one way I thought of to celebrate it, or at least celebrate the date August 12, 2006 itself: by posting the strips that several comics BESIDES mine happened to run on that date or the nearest date possible! In roughly the order that I first became interested in each of these comics!


Garfield strip from August 12, 2006:




Okay, so Homestar Runner isn't a comic, but I'm gonna include it anyway. The H*R toon from August 14, 2006 (since there wasn't one between August 11-13, 2006) was No Hands On Deck!


xkcd strip from August 11, 2006:




Dinosaur Comic from August 10, 2006: (The next strip was on the 14th, so both are equally close to the 12th, but I picked the one with the Mario reference.)




Even though mezzacotta didn't actually exist until October 10, 2008, the backdated strip for August 12, 2006 doubles as a surprisingly accurate summary of PrtSc Land:




Irregular Webcomic! strip from August 12, 2006:

Casey and Andy strip from August 7, 2006:


(part of the last story arc, which starts at this one)

Fun fact: In a strange coincidence, C&A went on hiatus right before I started the first version of PrtSc Land (not that anyone could've known at the time, since I didn't know about C&A yet and the first version of PSL wasn't online). C&A also ended thirteen days after the online version of PSL ended (not that I knew THAT at the time, either).


Ctrl+Alt+Del strip from August 12, 2006:




Terror Island strip from August 11, 2006 (even though the page says the 10th):
