    A little tip of the hat to “Ink Pen”, eh? Way to salute the fourth wall, guys!

    Dude just got exposed.

    At least it’s something different from the usual Jay sucks at life/Ed sleeps a lot/Rita is mentally you know what/Dana can do anything/Roy is socially stunted/Kathy is Roy’s beard/Oops. gotta do something for the other characters rigamarole that runs this strip.

    yes, we are all nameless extras in someone else’s story. at most, a minor recurring character.

    Not sure what Ink Pen is. Just seemed like a fun idea. There have to be other people in the company.

    Hmm. That sounds a lot like most strips. A cast of stock characters with personality traits, quirks and foibles that can be explored for gags. How odd.

    do I detect a note of sarcasm? Maybe a whole symphony?

    Fun gag. I remember a STNG episode like along these lines.

    As Bugs Bunny would say: “Ehhhh, Could Be.” I just wonder when commenters seem to be keeping score on when a comic strip is doing what comics strips traditionally do.

    Ink Pen is another strip in the GoComics catalog. It’s about an employment agency for out-of-work cartoon characters. Now’s a good time to check it out, because last month it went into reruns, all the way back to the beginning. (Not so good for the creator, though, I guess.)

    You are thinking of the episode “Lower Decks”, where the story centers around a cadre of junior officers (and a bartender). And yea, I was thinking the same thing.

    Supernatural also did a fourth wall episode that was very funny.

    I kinda recall that episode. One of the junior officers dies on an away mission, and in the end, one of the senior officers joins them in Ten Forward to mourn with them. Some kind of point about camaraderie, I think.

    I think you have to PLAN things as if you were one of the main characters, but UNDERSTAND that you are NOT.

    This sounds like my job. Everyone’s got a number and nobody knows your name. We support the cause, but are buried so far underground, mushrooms know us better than managers.
