#598 + 599 – shapes and shadows

That’s the end of “Vacation Day”! It was the longest arc in a while and I had a lot of fun with it and I hope you enjoyed it. Special extra thanks to Lacey for her amazing pixel art contributions! Enjoy your rad spring weekends all.

    You nailed the wake-up face. Perfectly.

    • Steve B. says:

      Yeah, that is the facial expression of a half-finished clone being pulled out of her cloning tank too early. Such is the life of a clopener.

      Eve needs to quit that job.

  2. nalem says:

    If you only knew, Eve.

  3. Glenn says:

    That is some irony right thurr.

    I love this comic!

  4. Fady says:

    Last panel: [Sound of a hundred hearts shattering in the distance]

  5. Ladeeda says:

    I dunno guys, near the end there, I kind of got the feeling she wasn't talking about the book.

  6. Anonymous says:

    Oh, you don't even know, Eve. YOU. DON'T. EVEN. KNOW!! ?(????)

    I definitely understand what she's talking about when it comes to reading, the passage of time and the melding of days, though.

  7. Dell says:

    the way you did eve's expression in that ninth panel, and Will's distracted expression after, it makes me feel like you're alluding to the feelings that everyone wants recognized between eve and will.

    Poetic and amazing as usual, the ending really sold this arc for me.

  8. DrBucephalus says:

    This is one of those times when your characters put into words what I've felt for so long, it seems that could only be because I've been lazy or unmotivated. That whole making the difficult look natural thing? Thanks, Meredith.

  9. Viktor says:

    i think that’s two of my favourite pages, right there

  10. Arkadi says:

    Heh. The irony :c

  11. Mike R says:

    Enjoyed it *immensely*! Great arc.

  12. Chris says:

    Just when I think this comic couldn't get any better, it does.

  13. Mike says:

    I can see Adventure Time still has a hold on you in some of these panels. #7 in particular has Eve with eyes like on the show.

  14. Jimmy says:

    Actually, I feel for Eve. My job right now means I work super long hours and don’t get to bill for all of them. Don’t go to law school, kids.

  15. @wr_schuller says:

    The line economy in panel 9 is fucking hot. What a page.

    • Nick says:

      I think the abstractness of panel 9 is meant to correspond with the text – it's difficult to make out a face in the panel, it's almost just a blob.

  16. Nick says:

    Is it just me, or is Will getting sexier?

  17. can eve and will just be together again already i miss them together
    if they get together again maybe i can deal with the heartbreak of hanna and merek

  18. DysprosiumDy says:

    In panel 7 she mentions Jane, but also looks a little like Jane. Intentional for funsies or am I making stuff up? 😛

  19. Tay says:

    Manuel doesn't know how good he has it.

  20. TactiCole says:

    Geeze. I've read every comic from the beginning, starting a few days ago. Kind of crazy to have to wait to keep reading. Keep up the good work Granulac, this comic is great.

  21. Ira says:

    Congratulations on the nomination!

  22. Really awesome arc. Dying to know what's about to happen to Marek and Hanna. :(

  23. mmkstarr says:

    Seems like every other comic in OP is someone saying something philosophical and deep having an existential moment/crisis.
