In a two-dimensional stick-figure world that follows two-dimensional logic rules like a side-scrolling video game rather than literature like Flatland, people do occasionally go about their daily lives. It isn't all evil mad scientists or monsters from the third dimension trying to cause trouble. Occasionally, it's just people falling in love, and--okay--monsters falling in love. Well, when that happens and people suddenly start acting out of character, it's time for other people to do something about it. People like Reporter/Private Investigator/Police Officer Mike who just might have to do something out of the goodness of his heart rather than get paid, and Mike does like to get paid. Reproducing the fifth storyline from the web comic in dead-tree format, this is STRING FINGER THEATRE.
