* ''Webcomic/MSPaintAdventures'' is ''made'' of {{Mythology Gag}}s. ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth'' has lots of {{Shout Out}}s to ''Jail Break'', and ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' in turn references ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth'' quite a bit, along with many of Andrew Hussie's other works. [[Webcomic/DrBrinnerGhostPsychiatrist Dr. Brinner]] even gets a nod!
