Today's comic

Strong character development is a hallmark of After Y2K. This page features the main characters of the strip with links to their first appearances. Many of the characters have "Getting to knows...", which are entire comics devoted to biography of the character. And be sure to check out the Cameos page too, for look at some of the famous geeks that have found their way into After Y2K.

These geeky chicks met each other at a Linux User Group meeting, while completing their doctorates at MIT. Since then, they have been the best of friends! Each of their respective fields was hit hard by the Y2K bug, so now they're busy developing new alternative technologies to help rebuild civilization. Their natural habitat... the pool. first appearance

Getting to know Dawn
A neighbour of the Geek, Relic grew up without any of the modern conveniences, like elack-tricklety, or com poo turds. Call him a redneck, but that mountain man from Hicksville, trained from boyhood in the fine art of hunt'n and track'n, sure plays a mean Quake! first appearance
getting to know... Relic
After a wild New Year's Eve blow out, Dude awoke to find himself somewhere in the wilderness, with no recollection as to how he got there, or who he was. Eventually he found his way to Kurt's and decided it was "as good as anyplace to flop". Although still rebuilding his neural networks, he is currently building an empire trafficking in After Y2K's most valuable commodity... coffee!. first appearance
getting to know... Dude!
The Aliens
A mysterious and unknown force in the After Y2K Universe... where do they come from, what are their motives, and are they really Nitrozac's Puppetmasters?

first appearance

The Sys Admin
Degree in Computer Science from the University of Waterloo. She used to run the Microsoft Soul Sucking Booth at Post Apocalyptic Tech Shows, (It's one of the highest paying positions, and one that demands a rather discreet individual). She worked for Tubes, organizing his nefarious plan to stop the redistribution of transistors in the post Y2k world. Update... she's dead! first appearance
The Delivery Guy
He seems like a nice fellow, but is there evil underneath that plastic smile? Hobbies include breeding gerbils and collecting CEOs. first appearance
The Ghost of Ada Byron
Ada Byron is perhaps best known as the first computer programmer. She worked with Charles Babbage, writing about and working on his Analytical Engine. Together, the pair also came up with what they considered an "infallible system" for beating the odds at the horse races... oops, not so infallible! Ada goes by the handles "The Enchantress of Numbers", "Princess of Parallelograms", and "Lady Lovelace". first appearance
The Ghost of Charles Babbage
Inventor of the world's first mechanical computer. Charles was somewhat miffed at the whole microprocessor thing, but had a good laugh at the stroke of midnight Dec 31st 1999.
first appearance
The genius Visionary who foresaw the Geek Apocalypse, and developed an oasis of new technology and the center for recovering geeks. Quiet and somewhat moody, he finds solace in the poetry of user manuals. Currently missing. first appearance

Bill Gates
The World's Richest Man™ couldn't escape the Y2K bug. ...he was stuck in his bathroom for years! Newsflash: he just recently escaped!

first appearance
Seen here both as a young man and as an old man, he's a big vacuum tubes advocate, and considers everything else pretty much "crap", especially those horrible transistors! Tube's life changes after receiving a Tubes Rock t-shirt from his future self! Shortly afterwards his job changing vacuum tubes is rendered obsolete by the arrival of the transistor. Becoming obsessed, he gathers and hoards the world's supply of vacuum tube technology, waiting for an opportunity to restore tubes to their former glory. His chance comes after the Y2K bug destroys all transistors. His company, Tubes Rock Inc. quickly becomes a giant as civilization is re-built using tube technology, but dark and terrible secrets lie behind his success. first appearance
