And we're off to a good start, it seems. Yay, Zip... I guess.
...okay, some more words on the workings of the webcomic business.
How do fillers so bad get work and how does Zip have an "impressive" resume(as mentioned in the Kevin Bolk strip)? Simply putting, fillers aren't usually hired for fully acting. When it comes to fillers, their usual tasks are either being a) background; or b) one-shot characters with little to no involvement on the plot or anything else. So it's usually more important to have someone who can be easily adapted to your styling and reshaping needs than someone who can really act. In the latter case, webcomics usually go through the trouble of hiring an actual actor.
I hope this was educational, at least.

Yes, the Dr. Pepper thing is an inner joke. No, I'm note really sure what it means. :|
