Okay, so I happen to personally be as visually distinct as any comic strip
character. I like my uniqueness. But the question on everyone's lips is,
WHO IS MORE CAMEOED? Gavcharacter or Gavartist?
Ever since I made my pointy-nosed blue-locked mug public, it's been a real
challenge to figure. This page attempts to tally it up and find out. It's
a race. Vote for your favorite by cameo or fun art!
NOTE: I haven't yet added Fun Art to this page. I'll be doing so sometime before the heat death of the universe..
In addition, other Nukees characters have some degree of popularity,
but they fall far behind in the Gav race:
Abused bysitter, though with incorrectly-colored hair, in Mad About U (I'm assuming this is me, though his hair is brown)
On the cover of
the January 2007 edition of Comixpedia (not sure if this counts).
my head stuck in a washing machine as part of forum-posted fanart comic of El G
oonish Shive called "KeenFans" (whew)!
Short (but blue) haired sysadmin named "Fleuel" in GPF with first unnamed appearance
some months before. (3)
Sweet appreciation (and Guinness) by El Goonish Shive and then
again in the strip itself, disdainful about the state of physics in that world... and then
yet once more in a strip I watched him pencil while at Comic Con. (3)
Loveless by Goats
General obssession on the all-too-cool Gav Shrine(!) by M, who forced Jennifer to doodle at toothpick-point (6!) [NOTE: GavShrine seems to have disappeared from the web].
Highly redundant recurring character in the Schlock Mercenary universe (950,000,000!)
As Gavcharacter's servant in Clan of the Cats (thus completely obliterating the line between real life and fantasy) (5)
In the challenging role of "Kitten #2" during a Sluggy Freelance production and
As attractive as Christina Aguilera in a Sluggy Freelance Madlib. Woo!
At a comic convention in Funny Farm
Reference in DeViations and then a year later fully rendered in 3D next to Britney Spears!
A brand name in Blue Canary
Tinkering for several weeks in Framed (7!)
Adlibbed into a position of disturbing authority in Comicollage (3)
As a stressed-out rat in Purple Pussy
(and then again -- Where's Gav?) (2).
Running limbo in Fusion D (3)
Reference to me in Narbonic
Cameo in Newshounds
Main character of The Angriest Hippie Geek in the World! (Yes, I'm counting it).
Disgusting Blasphemy at Look What I Brought Home!

Cameo in Otaku Feh
As he whose attention is impossible to get, in Robot Stories
An entire sector named after me in Amazon Space Rangers
In a picture on the wall in one of the three El Goonish Shive "Filler" strips featuring me, which is a bit annoying, because technically, this cancels out the EGS Gavspottings. But then, John Troutman did the same later, by transforming Gav into a chick in an EGS guest strip.
Globally Dominating in Narbonic (unfortunately, paid subscription required)
Cameo (with me as his servant!) in Clan of the Cats (6)
Cameo--Gav vs. Trudy--in General Protection Fault
