** The notes for [[http://www.screencuisine.net/hlcomic/index.php?date=2006-07-14 #171]], posted in July 2006, call attention to the then-recent announcement of ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' shipping alongside ''Half-Life 2: Episode Two'', after which Chris states "I'm gonna go out on a pessimistic limb and say we're not gonna see Episode 2 until '07." Sure enough, two of the very last blog posts on the comic's original site before Chris moved on to 1fort confirmed delays to [[https://web.archive.org/web/20070528172722/http://www.hlcomic.com/extras/?p=186 summer]] and then [[https://web.archive.org/web/20070528172722/http://www.hlcomic.com/extras/?p=197 fall]] of 2007.

** In [[http://www.screencuisine.net/hlcomic/index.php?date=2006-02-15 this strip]], in which Frohman [[IJustShotMarvinInTheFace accidentally teamkills a CSS player while buying weapons]], Chris notes that "I wrote and posed this comic last week, before our Vice President wounded an old man by shooting him in the face. Just a coincidence."

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Several throughout the series, but one of the best is when Doctor Breen tries to force choke his soldier. See YouHaveFailedMe below.
** [[http://hlcomic.com/index.php?date=2006-05-24 Frohman finds out that the metrocops are looking for a certain scientist]]. Recognizing Dr. Kleiner from the description, he (not so) immediately finds a mook and leads him to the doctor's lab.
---> '''Frohman:''' Ah-hah! Didn't think you'd ever see me again, eh, "doctor"? Now if you'll excuse me, I believe I hear a stunstick warming up, and for once, ''I'' won't be the one getting hit by it!
---> ''(Behind Frohman, the mook has removed his helmet and revealed himself as [[ReverseMole Barney]])''
*** From the following strip:
---> '''Barney:''' Get ready to start a new chapter in your life. [[AssShove It's called point insertion and it features this stunstick in an unforgettable starring role!]]
*** Also, the [[http://hlcomic.com/index.php?date=2006-05-26 "apology letter"]] and [[http://hlcomic.com/index.php?date=2006-05-31 Frohman's evil faces]] that follow.
----> "Dear Dr. Breen. Help! I've been taken prisoner by an alcoholic and a stereotypical [[AbsentMindedProfessor absent-minded professor]]! Send Striders!"
** The Combine's [[TheOnion Onion-like]] [[http://hlcomic.com/index.php?date=2006-05-29 attempts]] to cover up Freeman's massacre at Nova Prospekt.
** Frohman's interactions with water mines, particularly [[http://www.hlcomic.com/index.php?date=2005-10-21 here]], are always hilarious.

** In addition, much of the game itself, if one considers the comic to be canon, turning it from an epic drama into an epic screwball farce, though still pretty epic.
* [[http://www.hlcomic.com/index.php?date=2006-10-31 The last strip]]. Yeah, it's "The Life and ''Death'' Of Gordon Frohman", but fans were still genuinely upset in the forums about Gordon's demise.

* HesJustHiding: Despite ''reading the title'', many loyal readers were outraged and in denial once poor Frohman finally got offed.
** Concerned 2, an unofficial sequel, revealed that Frohman was brought {{Back From the Dead}} by simply re-loading from the last checkpoint.
