guest comic – steve wolfhard

Y’all best believe Steve Wolfhard makes the best (the best) comics. He recently did a fantastic one-off, Cat Rackham and the Comforts of Life, on his art blog. You are in for delights!

Good news – I’ve arrived safely in Portland, OR after an 8-day road trip! Everything is peachy. I think it’s safe to say the comic (by me) will resume Monday. Hope you liked these fill-ins as much as I did.

    This is absolutely, terrifyingly, genius.

  2. Torgy says:

    Welcome to Portland!

  3. Veronica says:

    welcome to the West!

    Hey, is that McPedro making a sneak guest appearance in this guest strip? Wild.

  7. Mike Dutton says:

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, for introducing me to one of my new favorite cartoonists. Jeremy the Squirrel breaks my heart.

  8. Nikandedd says:

    My goodness! May I recommend Spella downtown at 9th and Washington? You have never had a better cup of coffee in your life.

  9. Javer says:

    . . . Um.

  10. Avenue Hebrew says:

    I'm gonna go ahead and say it: all previous guest comics pale in comparison to this. This is the untold tale of Octopus Pie that demanded telling.

  11. darrylayo says:

    Oh man…Monstro's on my friend list, but this is on the next level of strangeness. What a way to start your day (both Hannah and me)!

  12. ladymercury says:

    In the last panel Hanna has this little smile on her face that says it all…

  13. John K says:

    Wow… That is just brilliant, I love the shading with grays.

  14. David Waltergart says:

    Ah, Octopus Pie – I so enjoy everybody's recipes and cooking.

    A good dish, no matter the cook, it would seem.

    Meant to ask – would Eve ever have seen octopus pie in the prepared foods section of Ollie's Organix?

    Glad you're "home" safe. Best wishes for grooving with Portland, MG.

  15. Krimson says:

    I always suspected Marek had the powers of the third eye.

    Everybody! Come join the Kulasenski Train to Enlightenment! WOOOO!

  16. maggie says:

    steve's awesome. i just got into portland too, woo!

  17. los says:

    Crap, thats a long drive! Hope the new locale is just as good if not better than the last!

  18. Jaime says:

    That was quite odd. But I like it, I just can't pick why

  19. Eric says:

    Welcome to stumptown! :) I know how good it felt when I drove here cross country… sweet west coast relief…

  20. Salvar says:

    I love how he made sure to show a tiny bit of gold in the last panel, to ensure that we didn't think Hannah was sleeping the whole time.

  21. BG says:

    What the fuuuuuuuuuuuuuu*k.

  22. MerchManDan says:

    I feel a desperate need to run away screaming.

  23. Albedo12 says:

    N'guh. Wow.

  24. Almost Literally says:

    I only have one word to describe how awesome this strip is: Pow.

  25. ... says:

    multnomah county bike fair is tomorrow, starts at 230, at SE 20th and belmont. you know, if you're into bikes.

  26. Brig says:

    I was just in Portland! It's so nifty… and the home of many of our tooning brethren (I am a cartoonist, too). In fact, my comic strip, Squid Row is featuring Portland this week! Small world. Anyhow, hope the moving in goes well.

  27. Cheleball says:

    Oh Hannah. Stoned in the middle of the night? For shame.

  28. Maymay says:


  29. Dryskle says:

    Okay, wow. This is my favorite guest comic I have ever read for any comic ever. I don't know if it is a reference to something else, but if it is, I don't want to know, because it stands so amazingly well on its own. Time for me to figure out how to stop laughing uncontrollably.


  30. Danyell says:

    And that is why we never see Marek's eyes. We as mere mortals could not stand the shear awesome power of "pow."

  31. Ira says:

    See, now, that's a great guest comic: weirdly awesome, disclosing hitherto unseen dimensions of the strip.

  32. Biggles says:

    Does anyone else imagine a low droning chorus when she reveals Marek's eyes?

  33. shallot says:


  34. Chris D says:

    The eyes are the windows to the soul.

  35. Beat says:

    wow, just wow… I almost died laughing

  36. JayZeroSnake says:

    So that's what was under there…



  37. Stacy says:

    Did anyone else notice the window reflection with a sea and mountain/island in the eyes?
