    Huh, guess so!

  2. @SamDGrover says:

    Haha! Panels 2&3, that's the best seductive leg-cross I've ever seen. Everything perfectly drawn, not an awkward drunken eyebrow out of place.

  3. Wood says:

    The guy can take a hint. It just needs to be a really big one.

    • HateMachine says:

      I dunno, at some point, taking furtive glances at the crossword solution when you're stuck becomes straight-up copying all the answers. They were well past hint territory.

    • Bonnie says:

      Light bends around that guy, he's so dense

    • Phasma Felis says:

      It is not a fun way to be. :( I'm like "huh, I'm about 96% sure she's coming on to me, but if I go for it and I'm wrong I will be so embarrassed I will have to change my name and move to a different country and then kill myself there. So…better play it safe."

      Not a recipe for getting lucky.

      • abculatter_2 says:

        I feel this, way too hard. A girl could probably deep-throat a cucumber in front of me and I would probably still be "BUT AM I REALLY SURE?!"

        … Course, sexual anxiety also doesn't help BUT THAT'S A DIFFERENT MATTER

  4. SunBird says:

    Ahhhhhhhhhh ahhhhhhhhhhhh ahhhhhhhhhhhhh YES!!!!!!

  5. Goddammit, Clark… not even I could ruin a flirtation that badly

  6. Thores says:

    I can’t tell if that’s a “*finally*” face, or a “Welp officially no longer interested” face in the last panel there.

  7. Dani says:

    ahhahaha its funny! The last image its the best ever!

    Meredith, how do u draw? Do u use some kind of program? You draw first on the paper and scan to pc?


  8. bingity bing says:

    Totally called it. Guess that dude who got all snotty with me at the beginning of this chapter owes me a big, fat apology. As pertains to the comic: Eve + Clark = super cute, but it’ll never work. Oh Eve, when will you find love?!

  9. Yitz says:

    Ah, terrible makeouts

  10. Marvin Choi says:

    eve no! this will end the badlys!

  11. hirasawa yui says:

    eve is a sluuuuut

  12. Smoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo- (deep breath) -ooooooooooooooooooooth.

  13. Mike says:

    The 2nd and 3rd panels of Eve trying to be 'seductive' might be the best things you've ever drawn Meredith.

  14. Laura says:

    It looks like he's giving her mouth-to-mouth, and not in a sexy way.

  15. Other says:

    Open eyed kissing, never a great sign.

  16. sethnlilley says:


  17. @zoot_car says:

    The eyes are perfect in panels 1-8

  18. Disperson says:

    Still laughing at the sexy leg cross 😀

  19. Adam says:

    Jeez, is she a woman or a cheeseburger? Cool your jets, Clark. She already likes you.

    Clark…a reporter…

    …Is he Superman?

  20. JennyB says:

    Love that classic case of surprised toe wiggle in the seventh panel.

  21. Kate says:

    Aww it looks like he's doing the staring thing guys do where they're trying to appear Really Intense but end up coming across a bit slow. Unfortunate. But B+ for effort.

  22. zanglebert says:

    Awkward seductress, meet clueless seducee. Clueless seducee, please commence clumsy attempts at makeout now.

  23. Oh man, Panels 2 & 3 with Eve flirting… and then those last two. Brilliance!

  24. Olly Roger says:

    Personally, I’m starting to get really sick of the whole “new kid on the block = regrettable Eve hookup” that’s been the last few months worth of story arcs.

    Anything else, maybe?

  25. Arkadi says:

    Dem LEGS! 8D Nobody crosses their legs like Seductive Eve <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

  26. Dell says:

    Wooooooow Eve. Well, you get what you wish for. Ha!

  27. Bernadette says:

    Man, I can only hope this turns out well.
    It probably won't.
    But they would be pretty cute, and cutely unfortunate!

  28. Jackie says:

    Everyone has caught a terminal case of the awkwards.

  29. @jlichyen says:

    I can relate with Clark here far more than I want to admit ;____;

  30. fluella says:

    third panel made me think of Tex Avery..Love it

  31. @ScottBieser says:

    Youth is definitely wasted on the young.

  32. Effef says:

    leg so hot

    hot hot leg

    leg so hot u fry an egg

  33. DrBucephalus says:

    Nice to find a line that works.

  34. Lazarus says:

    It's kind of funny in contrast. Last guy Eve went for was pretty hesitant after she initiated things, and now this guy is mad intense once she gets things going. What will the next guy do?

    I'm tempted to make a "Goldilocks and the Three Guys" joke but that would be crass :p

  35. Hey I didn't give permission for my likeness to be used in this comic.

  36. reading…1st, 2nd panel….3rd panel…..2 min laugh break! THATS what was missing in my myriad of come-ons all these years, idve done quite well with that in my pocket

  37. Nicole says:

    I started a couple months ago and finally caught up today, and it's my birthday… My long hours of reading thru the archives are over…? noooooooooooooo

    Thanks Meredith though for this lovely comic. I always read it when I needed to feel better and it always worked : ))))

  38. steinlette says:


  39. Orion M says:

    Sixth panel… dem eyes… why do you draw eyes so fantastically Mer?

    (I mean, you really should save some of the amazing for the rest of us…)

  40. Knuxf1 says:

    I'm still shipping eve n will.

  41. aaron says:

    the whole comic could have been panels 4-6 and I would have been happy… this is even better!

  42. Amy says:

    Is it a new Evark???

  43. Romeo says:

    This page makes me feel crazy horny, now i want to see them go at it.

  44. Will says:

    Having been on both sides of this exact situation, I can say that it is one of the most awkward moments you will ever have in your twenty-something year old life

    That, and trying to pay for a two-dollar cup of coffee but realizing that you have no cash and you need to pay rent and the nearest ATM is five blocks away


  45. Joel says:

    Struggle snuggle D:

  46. rqwhitaker says:

    That leg cross in panel 3, tho!

  47. Doug says:


  48. pieman says:

    ….and he will eat Eve's face. And he did.

  49. lancelot64 says:

    Eve's expression in those two panels is amazing.

  50. Individually, I'm beginning to get really tired of the whole "new kid on the prevent = disappointing Eve hookup" that's been the last few several weeks value of tale arcs.
