#298 – puppy chasers

That concludes the 2-part puppy saga. I am off to the MoCCA Art Fest, one of the best small press shows ever! I will have all 3 books (but only a few Vol. 1s) and some prints. Find me at tables 523, 524 and 525 with my Dumbrella brethren.

And if you’re in NYC tonight (Friday) and happen to be a woman who either works in or would like to work in comics, come join me and dozens of other fine folks at the Drink and Draw Like a Lady party!

This event is being organized by Hope Larson and Raina Telgemeier – two of my favorite ladies in comics! – and is being held at one of my favorite venues, Madame X. There will be, I hear, very good cupcakes.

    OMG! I would love to come to this Drink & Draw Like a Lady but am unfortunately otherwise engaged tonight. I am although attempting to goto MoCCa on Sunday! I will definitely swing by your table. I started reading your comic about a month ago and made it through the entire storyline in a 16 hour straight readathon.

  2. Aarbear says:

    *Gasps* Eve!! How shallow! Dogs are more than just their cute infantile stages. But I gotta admit, they are irresistible as puppies :)

  3. Cryptolizard says:

    AW! Comics! Cupcakes! Cocktails (booze with a c) – I wish I lived in NYC or even US. :( Love your comic, have fun!

  4. Lily says:

    I <3 Eve so much.

  5. Caroline says:

    aw man, you need to do one of these in London – it looks so fun T_T

  6. Andy says:

    Which, not whom.

  7. Ron says:


    ARP! ARP!


  8. ladymercury says:

    In the last panel I hear the man talk like Clint Eastwood.

  9. Krimson says:

    "The fukken shit" mascot makes a comeback in panel two! As a live dog!

    Manuel is going to be so angry that Eve is such a petwhore.

  10. Mimi says:

    I admit, I am a puppy chaser.

  11. BG says:

    He kind of even LOOKS like Clint Eastwood.

  12. Daryl says:

    I love the look on eve's face in panel 1 :)

  13. danineteen says:


    Omg, my friends have one that's half chihuahua and half maltese, and at the same time we were watching Marley and Me, and their dog is the furriest ball of fun! I want a puppy!

  14. MerchManDan says:

    Most dramatic escape from a pet shop EVER.

  15. C. Augusto Vald&eacu says:

    OMNG!!! Poor Eve!! she must feel so humiliated!! That's what I like about you, Meredith, you are not afraid to pull any punches regarding beloved characters. No one is untouchable…

    What a contrast between part 1 and 2!

  16. Angela says:


    I'd like to do what Eve did, and then FIGHT BACK with my LOVE OF TALKING ABOUT DOGS.

    He seems like he'd be a fun conversationalist when it comes to dogs.

    Serious business, wot.

  17. GBeans says:

    I'm exactly like this with kittens. I can't handle the responsibility.

    Bit of a weird question, but I remember there being a page or post on this site that detailed exactly how the original page art and acetate of the strips were put together. I have no idea where it was though, is it still about? I'm ineffably curious about how it worked.

  18. Nate Fakes says:

    Gotta love the puppies!

  19. Ron says:

    Eve is really hauling ass in panel seven. :)

  20. Random Webcomics Jun says:

    Panel 1 – Cutest. Eve. Ever.

  21. Kitti says:

    Is the kid the same one who tried to buy weed from Wil?

  22. katrivera says:

    aw shih tzu!

  23. i like the puppy chasers because I have always wanted have a puppy ever since.
