This comic is further proof that as stupid as Dr. Light might appear, he's anything but. As we see here, when conflicts of morality have no effect on the "hero", you have to find out what would motivate them, and that may not be a simple thing to do. Besides that, could a simpleton possibly create the devices Dr. Light does?
You might notice that Dr. Light used the term "strip" to refer to the comic. For the first year or so, I used that term to refer to the comic strip. Over time, I'm not sure exactly when, I started referring to it as a "comic" instead, and use that rather exclusively today. So why the switch? Well, I don't think I was ever really comfortable using "strip", what with the additional, perhaps more explicit, definitions of that particular word. Besides, when you're making a "comic" and/or a "strip", what verb would you use to describe the process? "Stripping"? Yeah, I have enough problem already with the purple leotard, thank you. So eventually I just started referring to as a "comic" and the process "comicking" (or some variation thereof).
