Thus passes (http://www.hlcomic.com/) possibly THE most brilliant comic in the history of funny sh*t.

Props to Chris Livingston, who not only wrote a frickin hilarious comic for a year and a half, but did it on his own with no official financial compensation and saw it through to completion. If only all freelance...I don't know...game based project people, were that devoted, then I would likely be happily playing the fabled Dark Forces mod for Jedi Academy right now. ;)

Gordon Frohman, you will be missed.

I can't belive he stopped at the beginning of Episode 1, but then again, I guess that's why it's called "The Half-Life and Death of Gordon Frohman."

My Tuesdays and Thursdays will now be filled with less funny :(

"Congratulations on finding this fortuitously placed Medkit! We at "Heal-U-Kwik" Industries have a simple philosophy: Manufacture the finest Medkits money can buy, then scatter them around dangerous areas of war-torn cities to be found and used by injured adventurers at no actual cost to themselves!

Instructions for use: simply touch, pick up or walk over Medkit. Doing so will heal most types of injuries, including bullet wounds, zombie slashes, antlion gouges, shrapnel, even self-inflicted damage caused by careless falls off ledges or catwalks (Note: falls from large bridges can be fatal!) Our patented technology will even remove pesky bloodstains from your clothing and body...instantly!

Talk to your doctor before using Medkit. Side effects may include blurred vision and inflated sense of invlunerability. This Medkit is Eco-Friendly, and will completely and instantly biodegrade upon use."

Gonna miss hapless ol' Gordon Frohman. Still, surprised they kept it up as long as they did. RIP Concerned.

Read his comments if you don't get it. He was poking fun at Valve because they took a really long time to release Half-Life 2 and kept pushing it back. He ended up doing the same exact thing in the very last comic.
