View Full Version : Six Degrees of Separation: The Webcomic Edition

2014-10-30, 07:21 PM
The concept of six degrees of separation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Six_degrees_of_separation) linking everyone in the world to everyone else has spawned a couple games where you try to find a connection between two people in six steps or less. The community of webcomic authors is pretty interconnected, so I thought it could be fun to try it here! For example:
Penny Arcade → Girls With Slingshots

Penny Arcade (http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2014/08/08/the-talk-by-kris-straub) has done work (http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2014/08/08/the-talk-by-kris-straub) with

Kris Straub, whose comic Chainsawsuit once made fun (http://chainsawsuit.com/comic/2012/01/06/addictions-and-the-human-toll/) of
Least I Could Do, whose author once did some guest strips (http://www.girlswithslingshots.com/comic/guest-week-lar-desouza-1/) for
Girls With Slingshots.

Bam! Got it in 3! I challenge anyone who reads this to find a way to link between... let's say Gunnerkrigg Court and Looking for Group. Then make up your own challenge for someone else to solve! Or, if you can beat an earlier person's solution with a shorter chain of comic artists( I now see a way to beat mine using just two steps instead of three), show us!
