GUTS: A Young Adult Television Fiasco

The story of a GUTS contestant, written in the form of a graphic novel: http://www.topshelfcomix.com/ts2.0/guts/

Not a bad read, if I do say so, myself.

And the episode he was in:

I think that's probably the most detailed look into what a former Nick GaS contestant was thinking (rather than just how the show ran) that we've seen yet, and it was pretty good read, too. :D Nice find, TSM!

Oh wow, the joys and sadness of being a contestant of a kid's game show during the 90s, especially when you're taking a piss right next to Mike O' Malley.

Wonder how it would be for Moira Quirk. :mrgreen:

Finally read the whole comic, he should have called Reagan to see how he was doing. Cause that would make for an interesting panel.

Thanks for sharing that. Very interesting to read. I always wondered about the behind-the-scenes process kids went through to be on the show and what it was like in-between the breaks and after the show ended.
