In a world with only two dimensions, evil mad scientists seek to unlock the secrets of the 3rd dimension and thereby gain the power to rule the world. One mad scientist—in training—would have a change of heart upon discovering that the secrets of the 3rd dimension would lead to the destruction of the world. Thus begins the adventures of three stick figures as they seek to thwart evil, save the world, and make a few bucks in the process, but that's just Mike. He likes to get paid.

In a two-dimensional world of evil mad scientists and superheroes, one man simply does not care and cannot be bothered to get out of bed. This isn't his story. It's the story of Mike and Reformed Evil Mad Scientist Cat who just want that slacker Zed to stop moping and get up for a change. And so, Mike and Cat set about the grand adventure of trying to find Zed a new groove. Reproducing the second storyline from the web comic, this is the continuing adventures of String Finger Theatre.
In a side-scrolling two-dimensional world of evil mad scientists and superheroes, there are still people just going about their daily lives and stuff. One such normal person is the triple-threat (Reporter/Private Investigator/Police Detective) Mike. He likes a good day's work, and he especially likes to get paid. Occasionally, he gets a perfectly normal case involving the theft and ransom of avant garde works of art, but this is String Finger Threatre so things aren't as simple as they seem. And, of course, things get wildly unlikely and convoluted from there. Will Mike solve the case? Will he get paid? Inquiring minds want to know.

In a world with only two dimensions populdated by stick figures, a dedicated few remember when evil mad scientists attempted to use the third dimension to take over the world. Now, Reformed Evil Mad Scientist Cat, Reporter/Private Investigator/Police Officer Mike, and Washed-up Superhero Zed remain ever vigilant for incursions from the higher dimensions. It looks like that time has arrived, as third dimensional critters make it clear they seek revenge, and it looks like Mike, Cat and Zed have very little time to foil Evil Mad Scientist Carmack's diabolical new plan and save the world.

In a two-dimensional stick-figure world that follows two-dimensional logic rules like a side-scrolling video game rather than literature like Flatland, people do occasionally go about their daily lives. It isn't all evil mad scientists or monsters from the third dimension trying to cause trouble. Occasionally, it's just people falling in love, and—okay—monsters falling in love. Well, when that happens and people suddenly start acting out of character, it's time for other people to do something about it. People like Reporter/Private Investigator/Police Officer Mike who just might have to do something out of the goodness of his heart rather than get paid, and Mike does like to get paid.

In a world of two dimensions full of monsters and mad scientists, there are times when even a former superhero just wants to find something else to do. Get a hobby. Start a project. Anything. Sometimes, a forcefully retired superhero will strike out in new directions such as taking up art. Sometimes, they even try their hand at industrial strength art. Sure, it's not as glamorous as saving the world, making bargains to save people's souls or just thwarting iternational art smugglers, but a body's still got to make a living. Fill the long hours of the day. Reproducing the sixth and final storyline from the web comic in dead-tree format, this is String Finger Theatre.
