Although not initially named, the introductory strip featured the first appearances of The Imp, a sometimes lazy and distractable wannabe comics creator, and his more sensible and supportive roommate Teed.


Is G4 even still around? The reference certainly makes this initial strip somewhat dated.

Fun facts!

  • Frank Miller’s first comics work appeared in 1978, several years before Jessica Alba was born. It would actually be a quarter century until he would be directing Jessica onscreen.
  • A quarter century is a lot longer than a commercial break. 25 years is roughly 4.4 million commercial breaks long…
  • The Imp may not have the patience for a comic’s career.
