#405 – from something

Gasp, it’s a black-and-white comic! Will tone when I haven’t been flying all day. New York Comic Con starts today – and I’ll be at the Dumbrella booth!

    Eve is wrong. Grapes are from something. Nature. She should get an original idea next time.

  2. Dengarde says:


    Can I hug him?! Please?!

    I'll keep you safe, Marekitty!!

  3. Qwil man says:

    YOU'RE from grapes!

  4. Leith says:

    Eve is the Grapes of WRATH!

  5. Scio says:

    The non-referentially costumed female character always goes first.

    • wykstrad says:

      And here I was certain that Puget Sean was the one who had been put in the story for the sole purpose of dying first.

      Actually, we haven't had the "it's just a cat!"-scare yet, so that could still be the case.

  6. Nina says:

    Why is Marek so adorable?

    And why is Teen Wolf Marek so much MORE adorable???

    (Direct correlation with tiny fangs.)

  7. ANeM says:

    Gasp! I didn't even notice it wasn't toned until I read your comment :(

  8. Scott Hall says:

    Hahaha, awesome! This one made me LOL

  9. hobotron says:

    Marek's cringe from the door slam (not to mention his wolf ears flattening a bit) is just too awesome.

  10. Squawking popinjay says:

    Good grief!

  11. yousei says:

    I saw that movie xD

  12. Daniel says:

    that podcast joke just about killed me, haha 😀

    I love it when comic characters are in costume.

  13. Eldpollard says:

    There is absolutely no raisin that Eve is dressed as grapes.

  14. Paul1963 says:

    It would appear that Eve's costume didn't provide sufficient cushioning to protect her from multiple impacts…

  16. She is the sour grapes that fox gets in that one fable.

  17. fluffy says:

    The first four panels of this strip are the funniest thing I've seen in a while.

  18. Higgy says:

    Someone pop all eves grape balloons?

  19. StJason says:

    I know! It's from the hit Broadwway musical, Grapes! It's the story of a hardworking migrant family who are working in Virginia's wine country. Their youngest son is too bright and creative to be a migrant worker, and spends his days making stories and songs about the things around him, which inevitably means that he doesn't work enough and gets into trouble.

    Eve should break into the Grapes song, "Don't Step On Me (Some Grapes Gotta Live)" from the first picking scene.

  20. MerchManDan says:

    I'm unsure how, precisely, grapes would be from a podcast.

    Anyhow. I strongly fear Eve has met a sticky end at the bottom of the stairs, impaled upon the angry swan.

  21. LNZ says:

    Grapes halloween costume is in a recent show on MTV called Life as Liz.

    • pdxwolfe says:

      I am so glad I'm not the only one who's watched this series….. haven't met anyone else who does….. then again…. don't normally watch MTV anymore

  22. Sela says:

    Marek's head reminds me of wild things! Cuuuuuute 😀

  23. Confuzzled says:

    Oh Nooo'z I have a feeling she's about to become Raisons from Grapes.

  24. Tessa says:

    I love reading all your comments, because it makes me look at the comic in a different way, notice more details. Also, some of you are funny!!

  25. Kylogram says:

    At least the black guy didn't go first.

    Oh wait, there aren't any. This comic is racist.

    Please don't take me seriously.

  26. Beyla says:

    I'm actually liking it not being toned. Looks really clean and nice!

  27. Sam N says:

    i wish i read that you were going to be at the Dumbrella booth, i was there today and looked all over the place… i guess just not there Q.Q

  28. Mawshall says:

    I just got done reading everything from comic #1. Yes.

  29. Dare says:

    It was very nice to meet you at Comic Con yesterday, Ms. Gran. Thank you again for your advice and the free sketch.

  30. Reginald Cornishston says:

    Same here! Thank you for the sketch and the pint glass. I'll make good use of it.

    Sorry to hear about the Topatoco team's tribulations in Chicago. A thousand plagues on their enemies!

  31. AMS says:

    Eve's not grapes. She's the Mars Lander.

  32. Kevina says:

    When will the next update be? Eve is worrying me!

  33. Charlie Lobo says:

    I just realized all those pops must be Eve's grapes!

    'Not everything is from something'


    The black and white makes it more dramatic. (maybe color in the negative space with a very dark screentone) If they're all like this from here on out, it wouldn't feel unnatural

  35. Vi says:

    First thing I thought when I saw the grapes was the outfit from Fancy Nancy's Halloween book. (yes, a kids book)

    Look inside, it's a couple pages in.

    I also didn't notice it wasn't shaded until i was mentioned.

  36. dani_dani says:

    Ahuahua I don't like Eve like Grapes. But. I love Marek like Teen Wolf. So cute! XD

  37. chicken says:

    people like grapes! (shh im not late)
