INSANITY PLEASE ARCHIVE

This page lists all the Insanity Please comics, grouped by storyline. It also describes what happens in that storyline, and shows when the main characters are introduced. The first 33 strips are very big, because I didn't really know how to work my scanner then. However, those "very big" strips are now only slightly bigger than the non-eye-straining size of the 2015 strips. The older strips are, from April 2015, being slowly re-scanned in a random order. The 2000-2001 batch will be done first, then maybe some of the worse-off 2005-6 ones. When they get re-scanned, I'll also update the page they are on with links to the latest strip, and the archive.

Elsewhere in the Theta Universe

A bit of filler. Insanity Please is set in the Theta universe - a universe where magic (aka The Force) exists, and various stories, not all my own, with no connection to Earth take place. This is one of them - Teddy Bear Wars! (there's no magic in it, though. It exists in this universe, but is totally unknown on some planets!)
