Webcomic: General Protection Fault
General Protection Fault
is a long-running webcomic
by Jeffery T. Darlington. At its core it's about the workplace hijinks of the staff of GPF Software as they deal with clients, internal strife, would-be world conquerors, alternate dimensions, mad science, and spies.
And that's not including the internal conflicts between the main characters:
- Nick Wellington: The strip's main character. Lead Programmer, Geek's Geek, Mad Scientist
- Ki Oshiro-Wellington: Chief DBA, Action Girl, Gamer Chick, Nick's long-time girlfriend and recent wife.
- Jason "Fooker" Barker: Systems Administrator. Slacker, not-so-secretly a government agent
- Sharon Murphy: Fooker's girlfriend and co-sys admin
- Trudy Trueheart: Marketing Director, Stepford Smiler, former would-be world conqueror, The Atoner
- Dwayne Duncan: The Boss, software engineer, Straight Man
- Dexter Smith: Coder, The Big Guy
- Fred & Persephone: Sentient slime molds spawned from Fooker's garbage. Until recently, GPF's customer service operators.
The strip mixes geek humor with sci-fi elements (and occasional dips into the Cerebus Syndrome
pool). A by-the-storyline index is available here
