Webcomic: One Phone Call
One Phone Call is a cut-and-paste webcomic about a man named Garth, who is using his one phone call to call his mother and ask for bail and attorney.

The situation is complicated a little, as Garth's mother is very tolerant of anything her kids do, except outright crime. Garth needs to explain to his mother why he was arrested, and he has to do it in a way that will cause her to want to help him.

The comic is composed of a bunch of copies of the same picture of Garth on a phone, over and over, but with different speech bubbles and text. See, 'cause it's only one phone call.

It can be found here. (Note: It shares a website with another comic, 0 0 0 This Comic Appears First Alphabetically. The latest update, regardless of which comic it's from, is on the home page)

If you're looking for the trope, see One Phone Call.
