  1. Feel-good party of the year!

  2. Well, I guess somehow before the next arc they all magically resurrect themselves. Lol.

    1. Reset button, what can’t you do?

  3. Hipster ghosts.

  4. Oh my god-Eve has a gun to her head! That took a second pass to pick up!

  5. Wait… so… is Hanna dead now?

    1. There's a limb bone in her barf. I'd wager that was a life-ending upchuck.

      1. She also managed to change clothes upon her death.

        1. well, really, all of them did. eve had the adorable cardigan while dead, whatshisface (don't know why i can't remember that kid's name…don't feel like looking it up now, either) suddenly had a super-hipster scarf going on when he died…marigold was no longer dressed as an avatar character and was in a cute dress, and big dude (can't remember any names at 5:00 am…) was sudenly in pants as opposed to shorts (i didn't see what else changed). And even old cranky lady has an additional scarf as a ghost.

        2. Poor Greg, he will probably always be "whatshisface". Forever.

      2. Greg did say that might happen

    2. When they find Ghost-Greg, tells them his body is hidden in "every kitchen cabinet", and that the sight is "so disgustingly vile, you might vomit yourself to death."

      Looks like he wasn't kidding.

      Hilarious story arc!

      1. This make so much more sense. I thought she might have eaten some rat poison.

        Also, what does Eve hope to accomplish by shooting herself with ghost bullets? Where was she 5 minutes ago when she was shot by a ghost bullet?

        1. Ha! I thought the same thing, like maybe she ate some rotten food or something.

      2. OH GOSH It makes so much sense now! XD Awesome arc.

  6. Oh Eve, how I love you!!!

  7. I have no idea what happened in this arc.

    1. This was like Christmas in July, only April Fool's Day in October (and then unintentionally in November); dressed up as Halloween.

  8. This arc was amazing. If only I could wander around as a ghost and scare old ladies who murder people. That would be the best.

  9. Was Hanna’s pottery wheel comment a reference to the movie Ghost?

    1. Yes (see alt-text).

      1. What is the alt-text? I've seen it mentioned a few times before in the comments, but I've never known what they were talking about.

        1. Just hover the mouse-pointer over the comic, and a yellow box will appear; this is alt-text. In THIS case, it says “I’ve never actually seen the pottery scene in Ghost, only dozens of parodies. You can’t make me see it.”

        2. Correction: The box may not be yellow.

  10. What did Will’s last line mean?

    1. “Marek, you and I need more stuff to talk about.”

      1. “Because, we, don’t normally have stuff we can talk about.”

        1. “Which would be, y’know, decent icebreakers if we were the only guys still hanging around–”

          “I’ll be upstairs.”

        2. Thanks. Last night I was tired I read it as “conversion” instead of “conversation.” You snapped me out of it, though!

  11. This was the best thing i've read all week, partly because all my other fav webcomics have been total bummers of late (xkcd's Randal's dealing with family illness & everyone on QC is mopey & breakup-y) but mostly because you're awesome. Fantastic arc!

  12. Yesssss to minecraft being addictive. I wish I had never shown it to my boyfriend. I've stopped playing, but it lives on though him.

    Kick-ass arc! I love it when authors do non-canon stuff.


    It’s fun to see that game get mentioned out of the blue! 🙂 It’s also a totally legitimate excuse for Hanna to be gone for that long 😛

    1. Holy Cow I totally agree. I was trilled to see Minecraft mentioned in this webcomic 😀 I'm kinda new to the game (yet completely addicted,) an old fan of octopuspie, and LOVE that the two worlds have, briefly, merged. <3 @ cha, Meredith, for making dreams come true

  14. Last panel: best line ever.

  15. It was cool to se everybody die (except the dudes! why?)! Is this cannon?

    1. Actually Greg died too (unless you don't consider him a dude XD )

  16. OMG, Hanna puked to death! Amazing.

    And ghost-hair is super cool.

  17. so did marigold scare the old lady to death? looks like she was clutching her heart. also totes didn't notice the gun to eve's head, how crazy is that?

    also it's weird that will and marek can't talk given how much exposure they've had to each other over the last year(s?) oh yeah, how fast/slow DOES time go in the OP universe? i figure it's been a couple years right? at least one.

  18. But… now the Countess is hanging out with ghost hipsters? Ex-hipsters?

    And who's to say they won't serve PBR in the afterlife (if you've been especially bad, I can see that happening)?

  19. I am so glad that I am not the last person on earth who uses "clown shoes" in speech. Meredith you are amazing! Thank you!

  20. That’s a lot of vomit.

  21. oh how i love will leblanc!

  22. so what happens when you run out of dead bullets? That was a six shooter and at least one's already been used.

  23. Haha hilarious!

    Man, Meredith. I just LOVE your panel lay outs. *__*

  24. “You can’t make me see it”

  25. there's a missing gunshot noise in panel 10.

  26. Just out of curiosity, do all you folks asking if this is canon ever wonder if the Simpsons “Treehouse of Horror” episodes are canon?

    What we have here in “Octopus Die” is “Studio Apartment of Horror.” Or “Converted Warehouse of Horror.” Or “Third-floor Walkup Above a Bodega of Horror.”

    Fun, but not in continuity.

    “Victorian Brownstone Subdivided into Tiny Apartments of Horror?”

  27. Here’s a sentence never before uttered in English (I hope):

    I can’t stop laughing at Hanna barfing herself to death.

  28. Just the way Hanna always wanted to go: face down in a pool of her own vomit.

  29. I thought Eve was the first to die, but she looks quite solid in this strip? Am I just bonkers?

    That aside this arc was the shit.

    1. In the last page Eve was hit by a ghost bullet and de-killed.

      1. I missed the last one! Thank you

  30. What?

    I don't even…



  31. How is Will super good-looking in

    1. …in EVERY PANEL?!

      (curse this keyboard)

      1. Because he is dressed as Brad Pitt.

  32. i see a lot of ren and stimpy in hanners deathbarf scene. puking up her soul eh? i've heard of that, actually. spiritual upchuck i believe it was called.

  33. All they have to do to be alive again is shoot each other with the ghost bullets lol

  34. Panel 5 Hanna expression might just be the most glorious thing in the history of comics. Eve in panel 9 caught me really off guard too. I really liked this arc.
