The archive page: you know, sort of the site's attic or basement where we keep the old comics.  It's a good place to look for any strips you missed.


Getting By Comics: Retail. School. Theatre. Anime. Dance. Life. And the not-recommended dose of sarcasm to get you through the day.

Updated Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, barring rare and generally pre-announced circumstances.

Litazia was nice enough to include us in one of her extremely cool Tao of Geeks strips.

So without further ado, the archives of Chapter One and Chapter Two.


Chapter One, d0001 to d0036b.   (R July 15, 2004 to F Dec. 30, 2004)
