Much of the East Coast lost power this week, and the great webcomicking town of Northampton, Massachusetts, was sans electricity for a few days (and right when I needed to put in an order with Topatoco. Harrumph). Among the stranded cartoonists was Jeph Jacques of Questionable Content. Not one to miss an update, Jacques enlisted the help of those cartoonist pals not felled by a freak October snowstorm. The result: guest comics from Unshelved's Bill Barnes, Shortpacked and Dumbing of Age's Dave Willis, and HIJInks Ensue's Joel Watson. Plus, Jacques timed in with a very on-point comic where his own characters get blacked out -- both metaphorically and visually.
