If you've been hoping to get any of the new OP books signed, you're in luck -- I'm finally selling all 4 books in the store! Supplies are limited (particularly volume 4s). I also won't be able to sell them too long - once my apartment turns into a shipping center I start to get a little loopy - so get 'em while they're hot!
Apologies to Canada + abroad folks, for whom shipping will be quite steep. If you ain't got the scratch, I recommend getting the books at your local comic shop instead!

Eve's totally zonked out eyes always get me.
EVE WHY ARE YOU BEING SO CHILL ABOUT DAT KISS
probably because she's kissed will a bunch of times
I'M GONNA PUKE I'M SO FUKKEN EXCITED
this is the only appropriate response lol
I COULDN'T BE ANY MORE EXCITED AAAAAAAAAAHH
I didn't know I'd been waiting for this moment for more than half of OP! until! you wrote it / drew it so beautifully :~) it feels right the way each end is tying up. I wish that didn't mean it was gonna be over.
Wait wait wait what? What the heeeeeck is this "gonna be over" you speak of??
This will be the last story arc :I
…Well. Don't mind me, I'll just be off over here tidying up my affairs before wandering off into the wilderness because there is clearly nothing left to civilization for me.
Why do people keep saying that? How do you know this? Why haven't I been aware 0.o
This is such a beautifully written and executed comic.. I'd be sad to see it go.
They say it every time a new arc happens. "Man, looks like everyone is tying up loose ends. Happy that this comic existed but hate to see it go :/"
I dunno. I think if this was the last arc, then wouldn't Mer say that it was in the description of its first page? Kind of a big detail/news to forget…
I need Hanna's window-face as an emoji/emoticon
i have that instinct
This makes me happy.
I went through about six different emotions reading this one. All of them exciting, most of them confusing
OK, the chameleon thing was just genius… I mean really! Also, Hanna's window face kinda looks like she's an elf who escaped from the Island of Misfit Toys. This comic is just the best (should it even be called a comic – can't we just go with Great American Novel?)
The eyes were a nice touch… I note the broom changed too, but then so did her clothes.. Chameleoning wouldn't be nearly as useful without clothes.
I have been waiting for this since Eve kissed Will when he and Marigold were dating.
Why do I love the way he moves her mop out of the way so much??
Thank God I thought it was just me. There's just something about that moment… It's like…. Iconic
Definitely gotta be one of my favorite illustrated kisses of all time largely due to mop placement.
Eve: I have to be here
Will: I understand.
Aaaaaaahhhhhh that is so significant!!!
Omg. I actually swooned.
I APPROVE EVERYHTING ABOUT THIS
Also, I pulled exactly the same "instinctive chameleon" at work today after a thing went wrong and I said multiple fucks in front of patrons while panicked-ly fixing it… and then realized I'd just sworn (torrentially) in front of paying customers.
Am i the only one interested in hanna's reaction here? It feels like its a sign of one last conflict to tie up.
Yeah, I can't tell if Hanna's "don't you dare" is because (1) she's pissed Will is gonna make them miss the train, or (2) she thinks Will's gonna wimp out on finally making an honest woman of Eve (so to speak), or (3) she doesn't want Eve along on this vacay because it'll ruin the friend mojo and she knows Will's gonna invite Eve, and/or as a (3a) *does* Hanna have a thing for Will? or at least is she so horny/lonely that she's considering it? Her final face makes me think that it's 3/3a…
i think it could also be (4) she doesn't want them to hook up anymore, period. but maybe i'm projecting jane's advice onto hannah bc it just seems like good advice.
I think it's more of Hanna saying. "Don't you punk out on this one Will. Eve can't take another letdown from you."
It does seem like there's a history of hannah wanting to keep Will on the back burner: her leading him on when Marek was in Poland, Marek not wanting them to work together, and I feel like she has been very into trying to set him up with women that she knows are ultimately not a good fit.
But I wonder if she's feeling like everyone is moving away from her, more than a romantic thing. She's good at being there when people are down, but she doesn't know how to support people when they're doing well because deep down she needs to feel like she's slightly above everyone.
Excited to see where this goes!
Yeah, I figured it's mainly that Hanna feels alone and frustrated, and if her friends are also alone and frustrated, then they can commiserate and complain together. But if all her remaining friends develop happy relationships, then she really truly will be alone. And since Hanna isn't really great at expressing vulnerable emotions, it's natural that her reaction would be to glower crazily.
I can't wait for someone to post a cover for Eve's song on youtube
I SHIIIIIIIIP IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT
Eve totally had a Ranma moment there.
Eve just wrote my new favorite song
LOL oh I know, mine too!
Just need to come up with the rest of the lyrics to the tune.
I don't know how else to describe the noise that just escaped my mouth besides "joy-shriek." I'm pretty sure I just set off somebody's dog… in Canada.
OH HI THIS IS JUST ME CRYING AND CRAZY LAUGHING IN THE CORNER BC THIS HAPPENED AND I'M SO HAPPY
Go on dick…start fuckin'!
Haha, ahhhh….man, this page is well done!
I've just been staring at that kiss with a happy face for way too long, I'm sure, but damn if this comic didn't light up my world :'D <3 iwuvyoumeredith
<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
What a lovely snapshot! 😮 best comic ever!!
I get the feeling will is taking the role of stand in boyfriend for hanna right now and she's not rooting for will and eve because it will mean she will "lose" will in that capacity.
Gods I hope she's not interested in WIll.
Hannah… Be nice.
But that awkward Eve moment though.
You know what this reminds me of? Jane telling Eve about how effortless being with Mar was. It really is such a change in life when you discover you don't have to fight/suffer through every single thing that is worth it. Just because you would if it was necessary, it doesn't mean it is necessary! <3 Come on Eve, take the easy and comfortable and turn into the new and exciting!
Will is so my type of guy… I would fall for him so bad, he'd probably break up with me like he did with Mar. Oh, well! Like his therapist said: just because there's chemistry, it doesn't mean you're compatible. And, really, is that so terrible?
(And to all the people out there who won't stop bitching at Hanna: she's more relatable to me now than she ever was before! Yes, she's angry. Yes, she's lost and skeptical and hell if I don't laugh at all her cynical comments. But for someone like me who's been there, what can I say… at some point it turns into something else and you can finally let all that anger go and breathe… she'll get there, no use in hurrying it!)
That sounds like a song the band My Dick would sing 😛
FUCK YEAH LETS GO WILL
Yay! It looks like Eve + Will might get back together!
Eve's, Dammit-you-were-not-supposed-to-see-me-acting-silly-and-singing-moment, is a very impressive drawing, in my opinion. Wow. : D
This has me all like
[hugs self and spins around room grinning]
I'D LIKE TO THANK GOD AND ALSO JESUS
I just realized, what happened to Olly's other employees? Jacob and Julie?
Julie was laid off, Jacob quit
Chris the Blue
My heart right now is basically Eve when she found out about Marigold and Jane.
I wonder if both Will and Eve had a previous conversation about needing 'time to figure things out' since Eve responds with 'I believed you'. There isn't a clear sense of how much time has past since Eve and Will have seen each other last. Maybe they decidedly took that time apart?
That is all.
I love how chill Will is. He just moved the mop slightly to catch her lips and she's slightly mid air, i just love this whole page
