Comic Description:
Paused - the untold lives and interactions of characters when the game is paused... Being forced to live out your life as a computer game character can be quite gruelling. Alive only when the power is on, these virtual folk get very limited time off between slamming each other around, getting hopelessly lost in perilous terrain and experiencing death after death after death. In fact, the only break they get is when those seven large letters interrupt the action, affording them the time to vent what is truly on their minds.
Ryan North:

A clever concept that's funny AND that appeals to my sense of a limited artistic palette.
