Turned off the porn filter? Wouldn't a porn filter filter OUT porn? The only other kind of porn filter I can think of is the kind on a porn site to show only porn in alignment with one's preferences.

If Slick's access to porn is being blocked he should be asking who turned ON the porn filter, or why such software exists on his laptop in the first place.

Ok, that would be disturbing indeed.

Slick was once trying to be good. Perhaps he thinks he still is. The version of him that he took those sunglasses from is likely responsible for turning off the porn filter... assuming this isn't a dream.

So he opened up his laptop and found it was lousy with porn?

How else would you know if a filter designed to block porn was working or not?

You mean Slick? Go back to the comic page, click "First," and go to the very first Sinfest comic. Work forward from there. It's worth the trip down memory lane.

That is Sleaze, or kcilS, the "Bomfed" mirror image (alter ego?) of Slick.
As indicated by the dark border, this strip is in a mirror reality. [The text could be lighter - it's hard to read "The Ghost In The Machine"]

Which explains explains the reverse effect of the porn filter.
Here, turning off a porn filter allows porn to be viewed.
There, turning off the filter allows non-porn to turn up.

Clever, extending the third panel to fill the space around the comic. Makes it really pop, and reinforces the idea of it being... inescapable.

After swearing off porn, Slick put a porn filter on, which kcilS turned off.

The third panel isn't the laptop actually telling Slick, "I'm not the one who needs fixing," for thinking that having the porn filter off indicative of some sort of malfunction; it's Slick having a flashback to what was probably a very traumatic event for him. At least, that's what I think.

This would scare the crap out of me if I were Slick. I'd even toss away the laptop.

Yeah, this is just normal Slick, still wearing his other self's glasses. It was his other self who turned the porn filter off.

Interesting appearance of Pxsomethingsomething...

Also, everything's gone dark. Not just the background - wasn't Slick's laptop always white before?

Interesting. If it's really in his head, I wonder how Tat will handle this.

You're forgetting your history.


Slick turned on the porn filter.

Kcils turned it off.
