Despite the fact that he’s made scant few appearances over the years and that this was his last appearance in the strip proper, Mega Matt has proved an enduringly popular character ’round these parts. Is it his sweet outfit? His constantly broken nose? I dunno. But I don’t think a week goes by that someone does ask when we’re going to see Mega Matt again. Well, how about now?

Joining me for this five page Origins story is artist Marjorie Rishel, one of the most consistently brilliant SF guest strip artists. She does some great work with a demanding story and I hope you’ll take a look at her fine work over at and give her some love!

Bonus points to the first commenter who reads this story and says “I see what you did there” and identifies the “what” correctly! (Wow, that’s a mean tease. No hints whatsoever.)
