A guest comic (or guest strip) is an issue of a comic strip that is created by a different person (or people) than usual. The practice is especially common in webcomics.
Guest comics are usually requested of other artists by the usual creator of a webcomic. This may be done for a variety of reasons:
Guest comics are usually not meant to be canonical with the normal comic; their purpose is primarily entertainment.
Sometimes, guest comics are not published as if they were regular comics, but instead exhibited on the comic's website in a separate section; e.g. White Ninja Comics. Webcomic creators that are in the same webcomic syndicate (e.g. Dayfree Press) frequently do guest comics for each other, sometimes simultaneously.
