    the sit up. THE SIT UP.

  4. aleksi says:

    So much comic so soon! I'm loving this. And I'm loving this arc. And Will's phone answering face/pose.

  5. nico says:

    first for EVE BOYFRIEND-KISSING-BITCH ALL OVER WILL AGAIN

  6. lilyhelenB says:

    I. am. so. hooked.

    love the (heh)

  7. Nifbot says:

    I got an awful feeling in the pit of my stomach.. I don't know why, they're both lovely people, but there's something.. Off.

  8. Kay says:

    The feeling when you've been trying to keep a person at arm's length because you've fucked up your friendship with that person (and the chances of being with that person) to avoid awkward social situations, because your mutual friends deserve to not be bombarded by your past drama, and then suddenly that person calls and wants to bridge the gap…

    • wykstrad says:

      Wait, how did Will fuck up his friendship with Eve? I would go back and look but I often find that I'll just reread the whole series from beginning to end if I try that, and these days that's enough to make me lose a day.

      • KiraC says:

        They did kind of smooch when Will was dating Marigold when they had both agreed that they were just going to be friends. Though that's a pretty big thing that would make anyone distance themselves from a person, I guess there wasn't a dramatically huge incident where he or she fucked up their friendship. That kiss was the thing I thought of though, as it showed that they couldn't really work as friends for the time being so they started to drift apart… until now, when Eve called, wanting to bridge that gap again.

      • Kay says:

        Poor phrasing, by "fucking up" I meant like things are so awkward, there's too much unsaid, it's hard to reestablish connections… everything "it's fucked up" implies I guess

  9. Lurker says:

    'Twould appear Eve is not "(super)".

  10. foop says:

    What the fuck

    *grabs popcorn*

  11. Yotomoe says:

    "That's pretty Vague, Eve."

  12. JPrime says:

    I love how quickly Will goes from being inside his own wiped mess of a head, to putting on the smooth-guy mask when Eve first calls, to being very present and tuned in to her. And how Eve is very real with him right off the bat. No cover story, no ironic distance. It's a good sign.

    Is there anyone that doesn't ship these two?

  13. woooow says:

    Oh my god something's gonna happen isn't it

  14. Matt says:

    Will, you know how hard I ship you and Eve, because we're basically the same person, but PLEASE don't cheat on Aimee. She's good people.

  15. spirit says:

    What does this MEAN?!

  16. 1st comment says:

    <3

  17. Hatsface says:

    I love your attention to detail, how you kept Will's jeans torn out from his crossing of the bike row even though that comic was over a month ago.

  18. Skinnypanda says:

    'To ship' is a new verb for me.

  19. Whitney says:

    OMG! Also, is Eve thinking of moving out?

  20. Josh says:

    "What's different is I'M BOOOOOOOORED"

  21. Dell says:

    I think Eve's bitch senses are tingling. She feels Aimee getting closer to Will and now she wants him?

    Eh? I mean, she called him, like, the SAME night Aimee talked to him!

    • Lemon says:

      I think it's more a contrast of when a similar situation happened to Eve and Will suddenly showed up to be there for her.

      That plus we've seen Eve is changing and getting a different outlook on the world and she is probably starting to look at what matters in life and Will is a great guy

      (side the drug dealing, fighting, anger management issues and the whole cheating thing)

  22. Stuffs says:

    It seems like it's been a while since this strip has been about Eve, so getting her back in is pretty cool.

  23. Mike says:

    It's happening.

  24. Alexa says:

    "I don't know. But something is different."

    Two words: mercury retrograde.

  25. Amelia says:

    ?!?!

    I'm half convinced that this is a dream on Will's part.

  26. Amy says:

    oooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhf oh my god. oh fffuddgee ooh??? i am so. scared-excited.

  27. Tinframe says:

    WILL, THINK WITH YOUR BRAIN, NOT WITH YOUR DICK.

  28. msdalfo says:

    AAHHHH–

    That is all.

  29. inv3rtebrate says:

    omgomgomg YESSSS

    My first thought on the last page, after Aimee said "get into trouble with Larry", was "or EVE". I'M SO HAPPY THIS CAME TRUE.

  30. verbose says:

    [cue heartbeat sound, "24" clock ticking]

  31. Andrew says:

    SUPER CREEPY EYES in panel seven. "HEEEEEEEEY EEEEEVE, I'M GONNA MURRRRDERRRR YOOOOOU."

  32. Bri-bo says:

    Oh Please Oh Please Oh Please. Will and Eve, the feels I get, they are intense

  33. egrain says:

    Holy woah Ms. Gran, these facial expressions are amaaaazing.

  34. Dogthing says:

    [img-ronpaulitshappening]

  35. chrisrussodraws says:

    maybe seeing hannah and marek's breakup is what changed things for eve? or maybe she genuinely just wants to hang out and be friends without any, like, romantic motive? anyway this is an excitin' development.

    (totally do the same thing with my phone contacts)

  36. NemoProprius says:

    Wait, whaaaaaaat??

  37. dickdickgoose says:

    WILL. WILL. YOU CAN DO IT BUDDY

  38. kamesen says:

    I think maybe Eve is looking for someone to talk about stuff while Hanna takes time to recover from her breakup. Sometimes you just need a good hangout. Lord knows Will could use a hangout right now.

    Also, I've totally done the sit-up movement in panel 10 while on the phone with someone. The last panel is awesome too. It seems that Will is either thinking "Oh my gosh I am so conflicted right now" or "How do I say 'YES PLEASE COME OVER NOW' without sounding too needy?"

  39. calliope says:

    Can someone link to the boyfriend-kissing-bitch comic? I can't remember it's location in the story guide!

  40. Blerp says:

    "What's different now?"

    Just a little change. Small, to say the least.
    (In other words, yes this is going to be good, yes all of this is great, and yes Beauty and the Beast lyrics are totally applicable.)

  41. sbs says:

    I love Will's expression in the last panel. He looks like suddenly he can see the future.

  42. Alexis says:

    "Hannah's friend"
    Wait, wh-
    "(Heh)"
    Oh you fucking adorable CHARMER

  43. Bryy says:

    IT IS ON, EVERYONE.

  44. grantimusmax says:

    The contrast between Eve's excitement in panel 6 and Will's weird derp eyes in 7 are just… ugh. the cute awkward. I CAN'T STAND IT

  45. steelbright says:

    YES PLZ

    I just sat at my desk chair and waved my arms around in the air as though I could surge all my feelings out through that

    second thought: whoa guys, don't fuck this up. Which, reading through the comments, they very well could.

  46. lubibul says:

    oh gosh oh gosh this is what I didn't know I needed from this arc

  47. Just started reading the comic and finished catching up from the archives – whew! Took a few days, but I did it! Loving this comic, can't wait to see the next update :)

  48. Kate (magic) says:

    Am simultaneously excited and worried.

  49. @nalem says:

    Ouch! All that sexual tension [and sex] and she still has the "friend's friend" label.

    Maybe I'm too young to understand :C [is 27]

  50. nope says:

    OOOOOOTTTTTTTTTTTPPPPPPPPPPPPPP

  51. patatoes says:

    That is because we lost all hope, and now the ship rises from the ashes like a PHOENIX. And it will sail once again!
