    Does Eve get attached too easily?

  2. Japong says:

    Dream real estate salesman… is that you?

  3. @ColeRachal says:

    I like the new font! And Eve's face in the 8th panel is great.

  4. Dell says:

    fuh-reaking love Eve in panel five and love love love that you are back!

  5. Mr. Nobody says:

    Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeve :( why with people who ain’t polite enough to wait for you to be polite :(

  6. digitalsocrates says:

    Panel 8 is best panel.

  7. Omnithea says:

    Eve, are you about to spend an entire story arc convincing a drunk fling he wasn't a drunk fling? Are you about to get to know a lot about him and realize it should stay a fling? Stay in bed Eve.

  8. @IanMayor says:

    Broken window. Poor Eve.

  9. Adam says:

    Reason #1 for Reading OP: Eve's face.
    Reason #2: Everything else.

  10. tony says:

    Welcome back! Can't wait to see what this story line will bring.

  11. Pieman says:

    Morning has broken….

  12. Freya says:

    I think the first three panels were a symbol of the slight creaking the guy was making getting up and getting dressed. Clearly he was trying to sneak out. She heard him as the creaks got a little louder… or maybe it was a symbol of the breaking of Eve's pristine image. She didn't smoke pot (at least not in the first many many comics) and suddenly she's smoking at a party. She didn't just 'hook up' with people, and yet she's clearly done so twice in the recent story arcs…. okay now I need my coffee. That's too much for me this early.

    • benthecartoon says:

      No, I agree. I'd add to that though, that it's REALLY representing Eve's sleep being interrupted, her dream shattering into wakefulness by this guy's creaking around.

  13. Higgy says:

    Yeah, I felt the same way about the cracked glass, that it was Eve's sleep being disturbed. This dude doesn't even seem like Eve's usual type :/

  14. Zyzzyva says:

    At least it's not the G train.

  15. Martin says:

    Dreamy blonde hunk with superman hair… Must be a dream.

  16. steelbright says:

    Am I the only one that thinks the splintering represents reality fracturing and this is a strange alternate universe??

  17. Steve says:

    Maybe the cracking is on Eve's phone on the floor as the guy steps on it.

    • Kate says:

      Yes, and he's trying to escape before she finds out!

      Meanwhile, Eve, noticing the smashed phone in her peripheral, is eager to walk him to the train station where she will pound on him.

  18. CassiSu says:

    But…but–there are no stars in Brooklyn.

  19. koerner says:

    Eve has been really depressing for like… a long time now…

  21. Kate says:

    The not-quite-awake facial expressions in this are so dead on.

    Excited for new story times!

  22. Spectacles says:

    From the progression between panels 1-4, it looks kinda like… he stepped on her phone. And broke the screen. :C Especially given the position of his foot compared to the phone in panel 4.

    Although the interpretation of dawn breaking/Eve waking up may still apply. This comic, it has ~*~layers~*~

  23. Ned Lud says:

    A reference to the crack of dawn?

  24. adamrocketblack says:

    I vote BOTH.
    Eves Night/sleep ends with the sound of her Phone being stepped on

  25. adamrocketblack says:

    Or is a visual Pun for eve being cracked out

  26. Is the change in font just for this chapter or a new thing? It stresses me out. Like not in a bad way. This chapter just seems a lot sharper and more unstable than the last ones. I'm into it
