** Then there are the numerous [[GuestStrip filler stories by other actual comic artists]], notably "Sluggy Freelance, where are you?" in 2000 in the middle of "Love Potion" when Pete's daughter Leah was born and a number of others, apparently led by Ian [=McDonald=], whipped up a story that involved the [[AnimatedActors "cast"]] of ''Sluggy Freelance'' going missing and characters from other comics trying to substitute and looking for them. [[spoiler: It turned out Shirt-Guy Tom had kidnapped them.]] There are a whole number of others scattered around the comic, with authors ranging from Ian [=McDonald=] to Creator/PhilFoglio. The circle comes to a close nicely with the 2016 filler strips ''by'' a Leah Abrams ("[[http://www.sluggy.com/comics/archives/daily/160510 Justine Kasich Goes Terribly Wrong]]").
