Strafe Left: The Formative Years

Ask a reader of the British version of PC GAMER what their favourite part of the magazine is and chances are they'll reply "The incisive, witty, reviews.". Ask them again in a slow, deliberate, Christopher Walken kind of voice, and they usually respond with a squeaky "The features? The g-g-g-games culture section?". Ask them a third time while frothing at the mouth and repeatedly stabbing a large hunting knife into a copy of the mag open at page 21, and they almost always answer "The cartoon! Strafe Left! Yes. That is my favourite part of the magazine.".

Some fascinating Strafe Left facts...

*SL has been running for over four years.
*SL is always delivered long before deadline.
*The creator's tool of choice is a rod of kiln-fired graphite sheathed in a sleeve of sun-ripened cedar.
*In June of 2004 an SL depicting Jesus and Mohammed as vortigaunts caused riots in parts of Xen.
*One old and cruelly-resized SL will be appearing on RPS every weekend from now on.
