The alt-text is the text shown when hovering with the mouse over a comicstrip.
It has quite an importance on Nerdcubed.
In Frank's comics, the alt-text sometimes provides additional information or another punchline. Although sometimes it's just something like "*hic*" when he is drunk.
In the regular comic there are so far four kinds of alt-text:
- An alternate timeline. Telling another story of the protagonist Nathaniel. At some times, for example if the protagonist dies, it restarts but the protagonist notices this and remembers.
- When Nathaniel is paradox locked or in non-time there are just dots.
- Inside the library computer it displays computer processes.
- When switching between the previous kinds sometimes quite random seeming strings appear.
