Amend on World of Warcraft Storyline


Love it or despise it, Bill Amend's popular newspaper strip Fox Trot seems to do a fine job capturing the various geek obsessions held by its character Jason. Not only does Amend have a good ear for, say, what movie the kid will find himself seeing over and over, but he also usually gets the nuances of the behavior right.

In this message board interview about a recent plotline, we learn how Amend approached one such storyline and why.

Thanks to Gus Mastrapa for the link.
