    Awww, Greg is adorable in a sad and lonely way. He's just like me when I was 14!

  2. Wood says:

    Nice Pricestache !

  3. Nikki says:

    LeBlanka? Hehe, cool…

  4. Sela says:

    >>Watch out for this one. The best one.<<


  5. Not specific to this strip, but my latest fanart endeavor. http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y263/Brian12345/

  6. Mayday says:

    "Yikes"? O Sinister Narrator Hanna, my heart, she is broken.

  7. Gwen says:

    i love marek's.

  8. Hyperfludd says:

    This is going to be the start of something great yes. I can't wait to pick up your book at NYCC as well!

  9. Alex says:

    This just made my week! and I love the 'leblanka' name, nice touch. Can't wait to see this all unfold!

  10. Damien Walder says:

    The signpost up ahead: "THE OCTOPUS PIE ZONE".

  11. So many goodness in this comic… it starts with "Hanna Price" and ends with "LeBlanka". My smile is not fading for a good while! 😀

  12. Rezmason says:

    I am so ready for this. Nobody rocks a holiday like Octopus freakin Pie.

  13. Gray says:

    are you not going to make "character twitter accounts" like in this comic? =P

  14. Sean says:

    Forgive me if I've just missed this before, but… Hanna is "H. S. Thompson?" When the going gets weird…!

  15. random says:

    I can't help but wish that she had been more like the crypt keeper and less like price.

  16. Ferret says:

    I am amazed by how good of a Vincent Hanna does. Also by the fact that she doesn't have a picture of Marek on her phone.

    • inamrg says:

      I think the replies are all tweets, so Marek just doesn't have an avatar on his twitterthing. Hence the vague one word message; Polish stallions are notoriously fond of brevity when it comes to social networking sites.

  17. Paul1963 says:

    Should I recognize Eve's avatar?

    Jesus, Sean, is that Kremmen of Star Corps? You must be as old as I am to remember "The Kenny Everett Video Show." It briefly ran in a late-night slot (after "SNL," I think) here in Baltimore about 1979.

  18. beedogs says:

    marek probably just got a facebook account because hanna has one, and hasn't bothered to set it up at all. peer pressure.

  19. Mo says:

    Wait, I'm confused-if Will told Eve he didn't want to be friends anymore then why is he planning parties and inviting her?

  20. StJason says:

    I am SO crashing this party. Or murdering someone. Perhaps both?

    (insert creepy VP laugh from Thriller here)

  21. MerchManDan says:

    Sadly, the LeBlanka reference is over my head and confuses me greatly. I feel shame, but I don't know why.

  22. Pajamajams says:

    Hanna's rocking the Andrew Ryan look super hard.

  23. Caroline says:

    Hooooooly crap, is Octopus Pie doing a send-up of "House on Haunted Hill" right now? Is that what's happening here? Because my head might explode from excitement, honestly. Two great tastes that TASTE GREAT TOGETHER.

  24. bryy says:

    Well, NOW you've done it. I'm going to be searching for those Twitter accounts.

  25. Krimson says:

    I love how Marek's "via mobile phone" tweet is cut off so it looks like "via mob". It makes the peer pressure thing so much more hilarious.

  26. Fish says:

    OMG Leblanka!

    classic… I couldn't stop laughing when i read that!

  27. JayZeroSnake says:

    Hooray for the Con!

  28. Mr. Pilgrim says:

    Who is that in Eve's avatar? doesn't really matter, cause Hanna as Vincent Price is too freakin' awesome!

  29. Arielle says:

    I've watched too many cartoons when instead of seeing and knowing that she was Vincent Price, I spent the whole strip hearing her dialog with Phil Ken Sebben's voice. The lack of an eye patch should have been a hint *doh*.

    But still. I think Hannah would pull off a great Phil too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nzc-c1-XIPo&fe

  30. lily says:

    Has it been brought up before that her middle name starts with S? Because I definitely just picked up on the Hunter S. Thompson thing with her screenname.

  31. Dragonair says:

    It is literally maddening to have to wait for updates.

  32. seann says:

    Oh spooky. There are actually twitter accounts in these names. Its UnCanny! 😉

  33. hobotron says:

    to be honest, I read Hanna's lines as Vincent Price – well, not so much as VP specifically, but actually as the actor who plays Vincent Price in Yacht Rock, because that show was fantastic.


    She obviously needs to contact Koko's ghost.

  34. wykstrad says:

    Huh- Greg seems to be the odd one out here. How did he get an invite?

    I love that he showed up on time, i.e. at least half an hour before anyone is expected.

  35. chris says:

    Hanna would be retweeting Kanye West.

  36. Brian says:

    Is… Is marigold making a duckface?

  37. Brigitte says:

    Haha this totally screams Twilight Zone!!!

  38. wat says:

    my dad's name is william leblanc 😮

  39. danineteen says:

    Eve's profile pic reminds me of faceyourmanga.

  40. zem says:

    whoa just noticed puget sean’s bee thousand av i wanna befriend his ass

  41. ActionShakespeare says:

    extremely disappointed @leblanka doesn't exist

  42. Marv says:

    I… I find Hanna inexplicably attractive with that mustache. What… what the fuck?

  43. Patrick says:

    I like how Sean has Bee Thousand by Guided By Voices as his avatar, that's rad :)

  44. TRA says:

    I think the Moustached Hannah is supposed to be like Vincent Price, as in: when Vincent Price hosted the TV [mystery + murder movies], on the 1980s PBS show named, "Mystery".
