This one was cut from the chasers! And it wasn't placed in the meaty part of the compendiums - just the back - because I wanted the whole book to read like an uninterrupted story, without the meta fourth-wall-breaking strips.
I'll leave them in this time around, because who doesn't want to see Hazel and Jamie in their goofy original GWS getups + wings, or tiny cartoon me talking to off-panel Kris, my roommate at the time? PLUS, I think it's kinda neat to note that I used to update twice a week - originally on some random days like Wednesdays and Saturdays, I think, until I realized most people read webcomics at work, so I switched to Tuesdays and Thursdays. Eventually I think I went 3x a week, Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays, and wasn't able to make GWS my full-time 5x a week gig until 2007, after I'd sold the first softcover collection of GWS!
Anyway, here's the identical original post - I didn't change a thing!
