Contrary to what the name of this chapter may suggest, this week’s strips are not a crossover with my friend David Willis’ excellent (and now defunct) webcomic, Shortpacked!

Actually, after I wrote a bunch of toy strips, it dawned on me how much they seemed like Shortpacked! strips, so I decided to call this week “Shortpacked?” in his honor.

I mean, if he can do  Star Trek gags, it’s got to be ok for me to do a week about toys, right?

On another note, how can we live in a world where Melonpool is updating daily and Shortpacked is not updating at all? It makes me all the more thankful s about Dumbing of Age, I guess!
