#388 – home again

That’s the end of this story! Thanks for reading. There’ll probably be some one-shots next week while I work on the next chapter.

Do you want to attend the most awesome webcomic-centric convention ever? You totally should get tickets for Webcomics Weekend! Full disclosure: I am an organizer and take lots of pride in this show. So come see me and dozens of other webcomic artists. And get your ticket soon, because they may sell out!

I’m only going to offering the handmade minis for a few more days. After that I won’t be able to make anymore! Grab one while you can.

    Allow me to be the first to say…

    What the Fuh?

  2. Matt B. says:

    Even as a straight male, I would totally make out with Ziggy Stardust-era Bowie. God DAMN.

    • Woody says:

      But if I'm correct that Bowie look is from the cover of Aladdin Sane?

      • Orion says:

        Battlecries and champagne!

        So I totally just discovered this comic yesterday, and after about three hours of obsessive reading I'm completely in love and mostly caught up. O'Malley's endorsement guided me here, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to have a meltdown when I run out of strips to read. =D

  3. Zac says:

    Man, Marek is so sweet.

    Oh I mean David Bowie, sorry.

  4. nothings says:

    dun dun dun!

  5. bluh says:

    so that's how they're dreaming the same dreams!

  6. Melissa says:

    Is Hanna hallucinating or something? 😮

  7. wykstrad says:

    wot a tweest!

  8. Cheepacheep says:

    So that's what's under all of Marek's hair!

  9. Mayday says:

    Hanna! Someone laced your herbaceous goods!

    But it looks like you maybe don't mind (I don't blame you)

    • Mayday says:

      Wait wait wait no

      Is it just one of those really persistent radio ads, in real life, that's been subliminally infiltrating their otherwise normal sexy dreams? Thus providing a Scooby Doo-esque logical explanation for this whole episode? Please help me Meredith I am confus 😮

      • Lisa says:

        Yes, the third to last panel is a reference to The Wizard of Oz movie, in which "it was all a dream". She suddenly realises this, and is then able to go back to her normally sexy dreams.

      • Bok says:

        I'm 99% sure you're spot on, hence Marek/Bowie's "Wait a minute, isn't this-"

  10. Kylogram says:


    Clearly they went through all that trouble over nothing :/

  11. Damien Walder says:

    1400 Sq.Feet of space. Oddity.

  12. Redhead says:

    Could someone explain this to me? Why does he look like David Bowie? Never has OP gone over my head line this :c

  13. Ian says:

    haha. gentry creek.

  14. Pixie says:

    I'll admit, I didn't quite get it at first.. then I read the comments, went back and read the first comic in the storyline, and went, "OOoooooooh!" Nice.

  15. Malexhe says:

    Do you know what's more awesome than an update with a David Bowie cameo? Learning that you can get to octupus pie through school computers.

  16. franki says:

    what a great ending :)

  17. nalem says:

    Ohh I get it. Thanks guys for cluing me in.

  18. SevernFelix says:

    So the real question is

    Who looks like Sam Rockwell right now?

  19. Lou says:

    A friend of mine sent me this comic and said it reminded him of me…

    …yep, I can see the similarities.

  20. Smithers says:

    Who wouldn't make out with Ziggy Stardust-era Bowie, Honestly.

  21. Nichas says:

    why did he turn int ziggy stardust?

  22. liquidhypnotic says:

    What Marek says in Panel 3 is very sweet, and Hanna's expression in panel 3 is amazing.

    Also, I love the implication that they did it on the couch where they were guesting. Lol.

  23. AlmostLiterally says:

    Awesome ending. I'm loving being back on the three a week schedule.

  24. David Harmon says:

    I like how Hanna seizes the moment! (Even if it is a dream….)

  25. Mo says:

    Quick Hanna! Before something happens!


  26. Rezmason says:

    Oh god we've gone too deep into dream. Haana, grab your totem!

    I said totem, not toke 'em!

  27. Melissa says:

    So how much of the arc was a dream, then? The whole thing, or just the beginning and end? Did they actually move out?

  28. Fish says:

    blew… my… mind

  29. Anon says:


    Seriously though; was I the only one thinking Inception there?

  30. Wood says:

    All right, I had to actually re-read all this story in one sitting to finally get the joke.

  31. INFERNO says:

    is that supposed to be, like, gene simmons?

  32. Mo says:

    I'm still so confused.

  33. Phasma Felis says:

    I get that their shared dreams were just a radio commercial, and that Hannah's dream involved David Bowie, but I'm not quite sure what her mental state is supposed to be in the last two panels. Is she dreaming? Having a flashback? Metaphorically realizing that Marek was her David Bowie the *whole time*? I don't get it.

  34. a lad insane says:

    Holy..I cracked up so bad I love this comic more and more! I'm so glad I have a lot left to read… no wait what..less than 40 left until I'm left waiting for updates??? NO NO NO!

    Thanks for a great comic, greetings from snowcovered Finland!

  35. Shras says:

    It's the dream again!

    The David Bowie Cometh.
