#283 – eve’s birthday

Just a quick one-shot between storylines. These are often some of my favorites to do, since they give each character a little bit of time in the spotlight. Things with continuity are coming next!

EDIT: And did you know today is also Michael Stearns’ birthday? He creates a comic called Dawn of Time, which is a beautifully drawn and delightful read, particularly on this, the day of the author’s birth.

    But when you comment, she'd get an email anyways. There ARE NO TAKE BACKS on Facebook.

  2. Chris Jones says:

    Oh man. That's actually kind of sad.

  3. Genay says:

    Aww! That made me a bit sad.

    Also, you can disable emails on facebook.

  4. LandStander says:

    Whaaat come on people that's not sad

    I wish I had Eve's friends for when my birthday comes around.

  5. DougTheHead says:

    Haha, Park is so dead and he doesn't even know it.

    I expect everyone else will get off by buying her a drink later.

  6. el maya says:

    "Chicken soup for the soul" Golden edition, with a mixtape of inspirational hip-hop songs, like "yo yo yo, be da man, girl!" and "shut your internal demons up, bitch"

    yup yup

  7. B says:

    Aw man, Eve’s birthdays are totally just-as-good or better-than-mine. That… kinda sucks actually.

  8. Chumpy says:

    D'aww, Julie.

    I love how possessive Gwen is of "Eve's" box set.

  9. Matt says:

    I got her a Heroes season 2 box set. Wait… dammit! I need to go to the store!

  10. I love this web comic. Pretty good strip for today, too.

  11. Today is also my birthday!

  12. BG says:

    Is Hanna still mad at Eve or something?

    • JT says:

      "BG says: Is Hanna still mad at Eve or something?

      No, Hanna's mad because Eve was too much of a jerk to come home that night and see her surprise party, not realizing, of course, that Eve was forced to work late when Julie cut out early to help bake Eve's cake. All that Eve's going to know is that her roommate is not speaking to her, her boyfriend didn't buy her anything, her hard drive has been stuffed with kitten pictures by some prankster, and her former fling has left her a birthday message.

  13. Yawney says:

    Marek is so pleased with his low-budget gift. It’s like he transferred all his fuzziness onto the flash drive.

    Also, Olly is the jerkiest boss ever.

  14. Randall Drew says:

    That’s some bitter, bitter chocolate in that cake!

  15. MerchManDan says:

    "300 pictures of kittens?" Marek, you've got to be kidding.

  16. BG says:

    I wonder if the cast of today's comic foreshadows who's going to be featured in the next couple of story arcs…

  17. Victoria says:

    I love these mini inter-story comics! But speaking of which: where did your "I like my coffee…" strip go? It's disappeared from the archives, and I think it was my favourite OP strip.

  18. Hajra Helac says:

    Huh it's my birthday too – but I don't know if it counts if I don't update and get several kick-ass surprise gifts?! XD

  19. Hajra Helac says:

    must correct myself: Happy Birthday!!

  20. Sarah says:

    Lol I think Eve might be the only person I'll acknowledge as having the same bday as me 😀

  21. SiouxieQ says:

    I love the strips like this, and poor Eve, probably not the best birthday. But who wouldn't like 300 pictures of kittens for their birthday? ^___^

  22. Dell says:

    This is really good.

  23. Ulises says:

    Happy birthday, Eve!

  24. Camilo says:

    I must ask, is Will under the influence? His pupils are awfully big. And that would explain his paranoid-facebooking.

    Eh, I bet he's high half the time we see him anyhow.

  25. Alain says:

    Thanks for making me discover "Dawn of Time". It's fabulous, it's great, it's filled with dinosaurs and megafauna and lost civilisations, and a few idiot time travelers, and of course, Dawn herself, with her goofy-looking triceratops sidekick.

  26. Wood says:

    Today's not my birthday, but it's the day I received my book ! It's very… green !

    Is the next book going to be all pink ?

  27. Ixipoxi says:

    It is my Birthday too. I am now 21.

  28. Ben says:

    This reminds me of Alex Robinson's Box Office Poison.

  29. JayZeroSnake says:

    I'm a little late, But I think a 500 dollar bill is in order…

    ….Too bad I don't have one.
