Strip by: David Morgan-Mar

Verin: {typing on a computer} My name is Ztefano. I am very rich and macho.
Verin: {typing} Anyone want to chat?
Verin: Whoa...
Garfield: You don't fool Malcanthet that easily, "Ztefano".

The author writes:

I was reading the Fiendish Codex I: Hordes of the Abyss, a source book for Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 edition, and I found a section about the demon lord Verin, the right-hand man of the major demon lord Graz'zt. Verin is a pure white albino, and is well known to Graz'zt's fellow demon lords, most of whom are his enemies. So to disguise himself and infiltrate his way into the trust of those rival demon lords, Verin changes his appearance to appear pitch black, and adopts the name and persona of "Ztefano".

I immediately knew this had to be done.

(Malcanthet is the demon lord Queen of Succubi, a likely target for Ztefano's subterfuge.)
