What happens there
In Comic Chat (MS Chat 2.5) you play a character in a comic strip. Other people who are playing in their characters along with you in a kind of comic theater performance. Everything you do as your character (chat, express an emotion, make a thought) is expressed in a panel in an ongoing comic story board. The more chat, the more panels that are generated by Comic Chat. When you are done chatting, you can scroll back and review all the zany conversations you had. You can even print out the comic strip and stick it on your refrigerator or pin it up in your cubicle (Dilbert, watch out!).
