Strip by: Jack G.

{A symbolic rendering of a young man, yet-unnamed, stands in his bedroom}
Narration: A young man stands in his bedroom. It just so happens that today, the 13th of April, is this young man's birthday. Though it was thirteen years ago he was given life, it is only today he will be given a name!
Narration: What will the name of this young man be?
{Underneath the narration is the command "Enter name." Beneath that are four options: "Save Game", "Auto-Save!", "Load Game", and "Delete Game Data".}

The author writes:

There are several webcomics that I read, and one of my favourites that doesn't involve the Comic Irregulars is Homestuck. Since as of the date of submission (October 17/18), there have been no mashups of Homestuck and Garfield, I decided to fill that void.

A word of advice, though, should anyone choose to embark on the adventure that is Homestuck. It is insanely long (5,387 panels, totalling upwards of 476,000 words, as of time of submission), and it can be even more of a time-suck than TV Tropes, but it is definitely a worthwhile endeavour.

Original Garfield strip: None.

Original MS Paint Adventures panel: 1901.
