Webcomic / The Trenches

Go To

Isaac: The amount of work they're expecting to wring out of us is herculean. Honestly, I think Hercules would find this difficult.
Cora: At least we'll never get any recognition. And we'll probably be fired.

The Trenches is a webcomic initially created by Scott Kurtz, Mike Krahulik, and Jerry Holkins, currently written and illustrated by Ty Halley. Each strip is released with a story "from an actual tester about their experiences in the industry".


Former game developer Isaac Cox has been brought low... somehow... and is forced to find a new job in a tough economy. He ends up as a tester for an MMO based on a 80's cartoon Show Within a Show called Lawstar, and has to deal with being on the bottom rung on the development ladder while also dealing with his co-workers.

Updates Tuesdays and Thursdays. The comic has been on hiatus since the January of 2016, I wouldn't get your hopes up.
