I've lost track of the amount of times, now, that a character in these strips dies and has a chat with a creator deity. Once I'm confident every strip is uploaded, I'll have to do a tally in the annotation for the last strip featuring this specific trope in the Dead Library.

I've edited the dialogue for a lot of the strips where this happens, either out of sheer boredom of seeing it happen the same way over and over again, or to avoid offending people by explicitly referencing specific religious icons, or to try and tie it into current comic canon by writing in some bizarre metastory. Since the 2011 novellas are entirely unedited, it's plainly evident that for most of the times this character occurs, he's literally supposed to be the God of Western Monotheistic religion. This is not very creative or inspired, and is probably extremely offensive to millions of people.
