YMMV / The Packrat

  • Crack Is Cheaper: It often becomes a point how much money Packrat pumps into his synths. But he keeps pumping.
  • Genius Bonus: Most of the series seems to be one big one, but a possible actual bonus is to spot and name synthesizers and other devices which appear in the strips but remain unmentioned.
  • Unintentional Period Piece: The Packrat shows that it started before many synths became collector's items. $3000 for an ARP 2600 like in March 2005 would be more than a steal today, but they were a normal price back then. Packrat himself admits that nine years later.
