Mighty Eyebrows Boy is good people.

Is he like a Genie to himself? He has to be careful what he wishes for, he just might get it.

29 Apr 2016 | 12:02 AM

Can't wait to see Parley again. Eeeeeee! XD

why would you even THINK that smitty?!? omg

29 Apr 2016 | 12:03 AM

Annie does that BAM! thing pretty well.

29 Apr 2016 | 12:04 AM

Still crummy, still courty.

29 Apr 2016 | 12:04 AM

Thats one way to write yourself out of a plot hole.

29 Apr 2016 | 12:05 AM

That's some bad luck indeed for that hypothetical guy, especially if that's his own sword!

29 Apr 2016 | 12:09 AM

Crummy crums!

29 Apr 2016 | 12:11 AM

Be careful what you wish for...

29 Apr 2016 | 12:12 AM

I had to re-read that like five times to understand what he was getting at. It's not that he makes her appear. It's her teleportation skill that she still uses herself. There would still be a reason for her to teleport to him. If he pushes luck too hard in his favor, she could teleport to him because Eglamore got injured. So he's careful not to abuse the power.

29 Apr 2016 | 12:18 AM

Smitty's situation really reminded me of this:

29 Apr 2016 | 12:22 AM
Noyemi K

Aaaaaaand new avatar, like... BAM!

29 Apr 2016 | 12:24 AM
A Nonce Mouse

That seems pretty logical, Smitty.

29 Apr 2016 | 12:48 AM

only responsible adults can have smitty's kind of power

29 Apr 2016 | 1:11 AM

That's a level of thoughtfulness I appreciate in reality warpers.

WoW Paladin

Woo! Annie's doing the gun-hand thing!

29 Apr 2016 | 1:14 AM


29 Apr 2016 | 1:19 AM

Yes Eglamore has taken a grievous blow but, y'know, Smitty horny...

29 Apr 2016 | 1:24 AM

So.... anyone else suspecting misfortune?

29 Apr 2016 | 1:33 AM

Sure answers one question that I never really asked.

29 Apr 2016 | 1:38 AM

Just like witchcraft.

29 Apr 2016 | 1:43 AM

Bam!! Double guns Annie... the last thing I ever expected to see...ever. Her expression down to her bendy pose is hilarious.

29 Apr 2016 | 1:45 AM
Typo Brahe

Panel 4 - It could mean because what thing?

29 Apr 2016 | 1:52 AM

oh my god, Annie is kind of a charismatic person now. when did this happen!?

29 Apr 2016 | 1:54 AM
Dr Blackbeard

Is this quantum stuff? This feels like quantum stuff.

29 Apr 2016 | 1:55 AM

Finally, the dark underbelly of Smitty's probability manipulation.

29 Apr 2016 | 2:02 AM

BAM. also tom your expressions are getting so good do not stop

29 Apr 2016 | 2:04 AM

And we can't have Eglamore dying. Nope.

29 Apr 2016 | 2:07 AM

They've definitely matured a great deal. He's thinking things through. ... also, Annie doing the 'bam!' is ADORABLE!

29 Apr 2016 | 2:12 AM


29 Apr 2016 | 2:15 AM

BAM! lol

29 Apr 2016 | 2:28 AM

I didn't even realize how much I've missed those eyebrows.

29 Apr 2016 | 2:34 AM
Silent Carpet

I feel like there are some intense foreshadowing going on.

Authors comments give me life

29 Apr 2016 | 4:01 AM

She killed eglamore

29 Apr 2016 | 4:21 AM

Oh... OH!

29 Apr 2016 | 4:30 AM

Makes sense.

29 Apr 2016 | 4:33 AM

Look at Smitty understanding his powers and what not. Oh he's going to be a great court medium.

29 Apr 2016 | 4:42 AM

Eglamore died. That happened. Sorry.

29 Apr 2016 | 4:42 AM

The etiquette of power. Fun!

29 Apr 2016 | 4:47 AM

Glad to see Kat has taught Annie the double guns.

29 Apr 2016 | 4:47 AM

You know I can't handle Annie when she's this cute, please dial it back a little.

29 Apr 2016 | 5:10 AM

I'm assuming you read the same post about the tub full of mac and cheese.

29 Apr 2016 | 5:14 AM

He feels kinda like Sasaki, from Haruhi Suzumiya's novels and such. Also, nice touch of "karma responsibility stuff" :D

29 Apr 2016 | 5:28 AM

Oooh. Didn't realize his power could do that. Hope something like that has never happened before.

29 Apr 2016 | 5:41 AM

Haha, Annie's gotten so much more chill :)

29 Apr 2016 | 5:48 AM

Hm. I just realized, I thought that the sound of space itself being distorted would be a more impressive sound than "bip".

29 Apr 2016 | 5:53 AM

Hey, if he really wanted to see her, and she's in range, he could always just ring her up and arrange a date. These psychic types - they so often forget they can still use mundane channels alongside their gifts...

29 Apr 2016 | 6:31 AM

His fantasy involves someone dying?! That says a LOT about him. Why didn't it involve something harmless like forgetting her phone, a scheduled meeting, a glomp, or a kiss?

29 Apr 2016 | 6:39 AM

Gotta love third panel Annie.

29 Apr 2016 | 6:40 AM

I'm just going to assume the card trick is relatively harmless and he's not killing anyone for that.

29 Apr 2016 | 6:51 AM

When Annie says "Bam" her face

29 Apr 2016 | 6:52 AM

I never realized that

29 Apr 2016 | 7:09 AM

Smitty is very responsible.

29 Apr 2016 | 7:14 AM

Whoa Annie, be careful with that pose! It's not meant to be used lightly.

29 Apr 2016 | 7:29 AM

He's adorable. She's adorable. They're all adorable. Also, I wonder if he's been told that's how his power works, or if he's just supposing.

29 Apr 2016 | 7:40 AM

Andrew is the best! He's kind and handsome...AND THOSE EYEBROWS THO!!!!! Tom, thanks for making this comic, it's pretty cool

29 Apr 2016 | 7:47 AM

Annie's hair is looking longer!

29 Apr 2016 | 7:51 AM

Oh my god, Smitty is ta'veren

29 Apr 2016 | 7:56 AM

Something seems to be wrong with the grammar in the fourth panel

29 Apr 2016 | 7:58 AM

or the balancing part could be on the other end such as she catches a silver bullet and.. twins.

29 Apr 2016 | 7:59 AM

So his powers aren't the purest of pure and things CAN go negatively with them. That's good. A balance with powers is something I like to see.

29 Apr 2016 | 8:03 AM

Panel #3 needs to be a "deal with it" gif like yesterday!!!

29 Apr 2016 | 8:04 AM

"Could mean because" isn't grammatical. It should be either "could be because" or just "could mean"

29 Apr 2016 | 8:24 AM
Random Reader

Smitty's imagination of why she might teleport back isn't too unrealistic if you think about it. Eglamore is a trained fighter and Parley is learning how to fight. If something attacks, they can handle it. What neither of them probably have is a ton of medical training beyond basic first aid. It wouldn't have to be something as serious as "sword to chest" but I could see her teleporting back because of, say, needing some cream to treat poison ivy rash or aloe for a sunburn or something similar. It's still bad luck for her as it interrupts her training, but it doesn't have to be worst-case scenario.

29 Apr 2016 | 8:27 AM

One wonders if he had to learn that lesson the hard way.

29 Apr 2016 | 8:29 AM

That was in the old Dungeons and Dragons cartoon: "if you bring water here to quench your thirst, you cause a drought somewhere else." Balance is important even if you don't have magic powers!

29 Apr 2016 | 8:38 AM

"Georgie." D'awwwww

29 Apr 2016 | 8:39 AM

Don't look back, Snuffle. There's crazy people behind you.

29 Apr 2016 | 8:55 AM

Why did people think the blonde X orange-haired person telling that story about their relationship was believed by everyone. It was obviously conveyed clearly. Everyone had lost interest in the story immediately afterwards. We're human. We don't do something like that after a bomb like that. Okay maybe not everyone reacts like that, but certainly not an ENTIRE class of kids who are still in school; you know, the point in everyone's life where cliques and hierarchy and all that mean everything. Bah. Anyway today is a good comic. I like that Smitty is able to realize that everything, even good luck, has consequences.

29 Apr 2016 | 9:07 AM


29 Apr 2016 | 9:23 AM

"Georgie" :3

29 Apr 2016 | 9:27 AM

The hypothetical man with the sword in his chest is Eglamore.

29 Apr 2016 | 9:30 AM

cutest couple ever witnessed.

29 Apr 2016 | 9:37 AM

Mighty eyebrows boy is mighty tall now

29 Apr 2016 | 9:37 AM

29 Apr 2016 | 10:06 AM

Souper crumby.

29 Apr 2016 | 10:53 AM


29 Apr 2016 | 11:35 AM

He's so mature. That kind of power with the wrong mindset could have been an abhorrent thing.

29 Apr 2016 | 11:38 AM

So who wants to bet Parley's gonna be all ticked off because he didn't bip her back for a booty call or three?

29 Apr 2016 | 11:40 AM
Grums McGuff

So I'm really starting to dig Short Hair Annie. Just sayin'.

29 Apr 2016 | 11:58 AM

I can't believe that guy (Who is that green dude?) is dead

29 Apr 2016 | 12:09 PM

Man, everyone's starting to look so GROWN UP I can't get over it! I keep going back to the beginning of the story to look at how they've grown. Even Smitty's starting to look so adultish. It's making me nostalgic, honestly. XD

29 Apr 2016 | 12:56 PM

Smitty seems like he's gotten older and taller. Looks great!

29 Apr 2016 | 1:07 PM

And this is why MIGHTY EYEBROWS BOY is my favorite.

29 Apr 2016 | 1:56 PM

anyone notice that he's calling her Georgie? when did that nickname come about, and how has he not gotten impaled for it? xD

29 Apr 2016 | 1:57 PM

Third panel though.

29 Apr 2016 | 2:13 PM

Panel three is up there as one of my favorites in the entire comic!

29 Apr 2016 | 2:15 PM

Consequences, schmonsequences.

29 Apr 2016 | 2:18 PM

Smit's jealous!

29 Apr 2016 | 2:30 PM

It's good to see that there's also a negative side of his ability. The risk of give qnd take. I like it, Tom.

29 Apr 2016 | 2:43 PM

Wow,so Smitty's power is more far-reaching than I guessed. Basically when he guesses that Parley is going to appear,the universe bends over backward to make his guess right. The weird part is that Parley's reason for teleporting will have happened already, so effectively he is altering the past.

29 Apr 2016 | 3:01 PM

don't listen to Smitty, you should always tip everything 100% in your favor.

29 Apr 2016 | 3:06 PM

"His fantasy involves someone dying?! That says a LOT about him. Why didn't it involve something harmless like forgetting her phone, a scheduled meeting, a glomp, or a kiss?" I'm gonna go ahead and guess that he's had a pretty abject lesson in not abusing his powers by now.

29 Apr 2016 | 3:40 PM
Peter pan

I don't get it.

29 Apr 2016 | 4:02 PM

Eglamore dies I'm calling it.

29 Apr 2016 | 5:48 PM

You have to be care for what you wish for, Smitty!

29 Apr 2016 | 6:24 PM

But Smitty, she asked about 'Bam', not about 'Bip'. You may even consider 'Snip' or 'Whoosh'.

29 Apr 2016 | 6:27 PM
Joe Bidet

You're doing a really great job making all the kids age gradually and naturally, Tom.

29 Apr 2016 | 6:50 PM
Dead Body

I can't place it, but something seems off about this whole sequence, it's weird. Also Smitty looks exactly like Eglamore in panel 4.

29 Apr 2016 | 7:18 PM

Are those UGG boots? Please tell me they are not...

29 Apr 2016 | 7:23 PM

Qualified BAM theory 101. Important for later. Test on Fnordsday.

29 Apr 2016 | 10:02 PM

I still think Andrew is so fcking op omg he seriously has the coolest ability

29 Apr 2016 | 11:04 PM

Annie is really learning to loosen up, given panel 3.

30 Apr 2016 | 12:58 AM

This makes me wonder what terrible things must have happened in order for him to get so mature about using his powers.

30 Apr 2016 | 1:00 AM

Shocked and terrified girlfriend sex is the best.
