... is this going to be like 1190: Time? 04:08, 3 April 2020 (UTC)

I hope so, otherwise I don't get the joke Forresthopkinsa (talk) 04:15, 3 April 2020 (UTC)
The page just went down for me so maybe what we've seen isn't what it's supposed to be? avis_magpie (talk) 04:20, 3 April 2020 (UTC)

Looks like the whole comic was just taken down. Parzivail (talk) 04:27, 3 April 2020 (UTC)

Can confirm - the most recent comic is Pathogen again 04:26, 3 April 2020 (UTC)

It is still up on the mobile website, but only if you directly go to comic page 05:10, 3 April 2020 (UTC)

Perhaps this is a collector's edition because it was only up for a limited amount of time? (talk) 05:12, 3 April 2020 (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
That was my immediate assumption. The title text says, "I'm sure you can find some suitable worldbuilding material if you scavenge through the archives." And I was viewing the comic by using the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine — which, wouldn't you know it, captured the page exactly once before it went down. Between that and the title "Collector's Edition", I can't help thinking that the comic was actually intended to be viewed this way. Though for what reason, and what intended meaning, I couldn't tell you. …And jeez, in the time it took me to type this, the comic is back, but changed! Oy vey. 06:41, 3 April 2020 (UTC)

Maybe it's called collectors edition, because it was only available quite limited and to an unusual time? But that logic doesn't fit with the title text. --Lupo (talk) 05:14, 3 April 2020 (UTC)

I doubt that could be caused by "technical difficulties". 06:14, 3 April 2020 (UTC)

It looks like it went back up about 5 minutes age. I can't figure out if it's possible to do more than pan right now though. 06:39, 3 April 2020 (UTC)
