So, here's something I don't know, and maybe other Comickers could fill me in on the etiquette.
I see various comics do "guest weeks" from time to time. Often the guest week is a fun look at the way another artist would treat the same subject matter or its a fun send-up of the style of the comic.
Here's what I don't know. How do guest weeks happen? Do other artists approach you and ask if they can do a guest strip? Do you ask them? I imagine people who are in collectives have an easier time of this.

David Malki! has a new short video out asking one simple question: Me Vs. Comic-Con, who's better? It's funny stuff and you'll recognize just about every person who plays along with Malki in the video. For future videomakers looking to cast webcomic creators I make the following suggestions:
- Tycho? Nerd God. With his calm attitude and shiny temple Jerry Holkins could do this role at least as well as Alanis Morissette.
- Gary Tyrrell of FLEEN. Boogie Nights II. (I nominate Gary for Most Awesome Webcomic blogger Mustache for next year's WCCAs)
- I know Brad Guigar. I have never seen Brad not talk for as long as I saw him stand mutely next to Dave Kellett in this video. The force is strong in Kellett...
- Kris Straub is no scientist!!
(P.S. if you missed Malki! pretending to be Borat back when that movie was out - that's also pretty damn funny...)
