* ''{{Drowtales}}'' uses this to not only lessen the work load on the main artist of the comic, but to use the different art styles to fully show off the current narrative. These strips are just as professional grade as the main comic and just as canon as art done by the main artist, advancing the story along in their absence.

* In the twelve or so year history of ''Webcomic/PennyArcade'', the need for a guest strip has only come up once, after a PAX convention where the artist came down with swine flu (and then only because he was physically incapable of lifting a pencil to draw). The illness was incorporated into some of the strips.
** And again half a year later when "There was a point after PAX East had come to a close and the second leg of our book tour was underway that we began to understand we had fucked up."

** On [[http://www.the-whiteboard.com/autobutton05.html this page]] there's not only the regular strip by Doc Nickel involving a big red SchmuckBait button, but an additional, related strip by ''Webcomic/CommanderKitty'' writer Scotty Arsenault.
** Kathy Garrison of ''Webcomic/CarryOn'' contributed several strips to hold things over while Doc Nickel was having computer problems, resulting in a week of non-canon strips featuring one of her ''Carry On'' characters, who had been given a cameo in [[http://www.the-whiteboard.com/autotwb1879.html this strip.]] [[note]]The guest strips are currently unavailable on the main site, but Doc N has said that he'll put them up on the [[http://www.the-whiteboard.com/sketchbook/index.html sketchbook page]] when he gets a chance.[[/note]]

Usually, guest strips are [[CanonDiscontinuity Non-Canon]] and posted as FillerStrips. Entire "Guest Strip Weeks" are often invoked by webcomic authors when they need back surgery, a week in Tahiti, or a chance to attend a [[FanConvention Con]]. Other comics, usually dailies, post a guest strip on Sundays in lieu of an elaborate SundayStrip.
