#459 – a lifetime of regret

The original page of this comic is for sale!

New story time! Hope this one isn’t a bummer.

I’ve been hard at work finishing everything up on the new book. We’ve almost reached enough pre-orders to have it printed, but we’re not quite there yet! So pre-order Listen At Home With Octopus Pie if you’re looking to get a copy! And it’ll be all yours in May.

    oh man!!! julie<3

  2. And right after she let Ollie help with the snowman. Seriously, Julie's just having a brutal time of it these days.

  3. Mr. Pilgrim says:

    Swears make everything better, At least that's been my experience.

  4. Lord_Mordja says:

    Wow, some people have no luck at all. D:

  5. DaJiboo says:

    Hopefully this leads to Julie's character changing, and she becomes a super shark taming wizardess.

    • Nick says:

      Agreed, poor Julie never gets a break. Maybe this is her chance to be happy. But then, she always seemed to have the most faith on Olly's Organix, and definitely loves the people she works with.

  6. stjason says:

    Does this mean that Ollie overpaid her as severance pay?!? Manical plotting…

  7. Sebastian says:

    *GASP* Didn't expect that whatsoever.

  8. Sebastian says:

    Poor Julie. As if I didn't pity her before…

  9. @flashfox466 says:

    Man… it seems it's always on the good days when something horrible happens to a friend.
    Then again, one of my friends has insanely bad luck in life…

  10. PrettyPersuasive says:

    First no Jane now this? What does Meredith have against Julie?

  11. Ruthie says:

    Dude now she can become a barista at Jane’s cafe!!

  12. Navyguest says:

    Olly's cool meter has gone down at least a solid 50 points as a result of this.

  13. hobotron says:

    The Kind With The Swears is always my preferred choice.

  14. @CLRgrrl says:

    Sounds like Berlin and New York in the spring share remarkable similarities.

  15. Pat says:

    Its a bummer already.

  16. Leith says:

    I vote for Eve’s hair!

  17. Tze says:

    Is it the same customer as the one from strip #390? >:3
    And yay, more story on Julie (and prolly Jacob, though not likely in a romantic way)!

  18. Booga says:

    Does Jacob look totally shocked and distraught in the last panel because Julie was fired or because of something foul the old lady in front of him said?

  19. Kevina says:

    In the words of the eternal Joni Mitchell: Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it's gone?

  21. Bruce the Great says:


    WAIT I know why! Everyone loves Julie and by having horrible things happen to her, Merideth gets more people connected to the comic emotionally! WELL ITS NOT WORKING! Bwaaaah!


    Nah I'm just kiddin, keep up the great work Merideth, you continue to be one of my favorite webcomic artists, despite your grudge against Julie.

  22. AlmostLiterally says:

    80s revenge montage time?

  23. lil says:

    Yea cheery Eve! Boo down-on-her-luck-again Julie. Can't wait to see where this goes.

  24. Damien Walder says:

    Oddest spelling of your name yet, MG. ^ Do you go out for Ollywe'en as Meri Deth?
    Loving the art and lettering. See you with OP-dedicated money in hand at TCAF! Can you drag Ms.Beaton along with? HARK! Also brilliant…

  25. Avigail says:

    Ohhhh man! Just catched up!
    This comic is GREAT! I LOVE it!
    Poor Julie… can't any of them have a happy day full of happiness (without anything depressing happening to them in the middle)?
    Haha, but then the comic would get boring… Oh well!
    You, Missy, just got yourself a new reader (which will bring more readers 'cos my friends like this kind of genre for comics)

  26. Mayday says:

    I am pumped for Julie to come out on top of this

    I fuckin' love character development 😀

  27. Dell says:

    She works with Jane at the hipster cafe.

  28. Confuzzled says:

    julie's gonna join the guild

  29. Xeroxlarry says:

    But I think the real question is "Where the hell is Victor?!"
