Sorry, guys:  I accidentally forgot to create a new comments thread yesterday.  If you want to see the comments people have so far left on the Monday comic, go to the previous thread.  Is this confusing?  Yes, it is.  Why am I doing it?  There is probably something wrong with me.  I have been marking for months and can’t tell.

  2. Just a small thing but your link to “Tuesday’s Debs & Errol”, seem to link back to your Monday comic.

    Comment by SunshineRain — November 28, 2012 @ 7:28 am

  3. But the Monday link actually goes to their comic, so it’s close enough.

  4. Huh…I’m really not sure how that happened. Thanks, SunshineRain: fixed.

    Comment by Kari Maaren (@angrykem) — November 28, 2012 @ 8:34 am

  5. Huzzah! Now I understand the comments! Wait, I’m commenting more on your comic than mine now…

    Comment by Errol — November 28, 2012 @ 3:02 pm

  6. Hi, Errol! You sure are excited to be here, huh?

    Comment by LoreHera — November 29, 2012 @ 5:47 am

  7. Wait until Kari gets papers to mark again then you will see some intresting comments. Not that the english gods ever give you any papers to mark again (hopefully)

  8. Will casy show up and bring Errol into silence again by his mystical ways of confusing people into silence? Or will they both start talking at the same time?

    Comment by blackwolf3 — November 30, 2012 @ 4:42 pm

  9. Don’t assume Errol pays attention to things not related to fun times. 😀

    Oh, and I’m glad you put Errol in the comic, now I know the relative heights of people. That’s all good.

    And I’ve read all the comics! Bwahahaha. All the WoB ‘sequential’ comics!

    Comment by Errol — December 3, 2012 @ 3:01 pm

  10. Errol: Are…are you talking about yourself in the third person?

    Comment by Kari Maaren (@angrykem) — December 3, 2012 @ 3:03 pm

  11. WoB contains (so far) 168 completed 2-week sequences. That’s 1176 comics. There is a few more from this sequence.
    [No, I did not count. I used ‘wc’.]

    Comment by emily — December 3, 2012 @ 7:39 pm

  12. Emily: yep…there are currently 1,180 in-sequence comics. Another way you can figure this out is by looking at the file names of the comics. They’re named after their numbers.

    Comment by Kari Maaren (@angrykem) — December 3, 2012 @ 8:03 pm

  13. Hey, look, consecutively numbered files! Now that we know that, we can ‘celebrate’ your ‘anniversaries’.

    Comment by Emily — December 4, 2012 @ 5:59 pm

  14. Emily: I do actually inform you ever time I hit a comic whose number ends in “00.” I’m kind of boring and methodical that way.

    Comment by Kari Maaren (@angrykem) — December 4, 2012 @ 6:46 pm

  15. I was… talking about Comic Errol!

    And give Errol a break, he breaks a lot of things, and hangs out with monks, and yaks, and other beasts of burden…

    Comment by Errol — December 5, 2012 @ 5:57 am

  16. Errol did you see the Casey Mulligan Flow Chart under Fan stuff?

    Comment by blackwolf3 — December 6, 2012 @ 6:27 am

  17. Yes, i DID see the Casey Flow Chart. 😀 😀


    Comment by Errol — December 7, 2012 @ 4:35 am

  18. I suddenly realized… I KNOW ERROL! I HAVE MET ERROL! And there’s photographic evidence too!

    Comment by fan — December 7, 2012 @ 5:33 pm

  19. Fan: DUDE.

    Comment by Kari Maaren (@angrykem) — December 7, 2012 @ 5:36 pm

  20. @Fan: WAIT. Stefan? How… you read WoB? WHAT?

    Comment by Errol — December 9, 2012 @ 3:04 am

  21. Pretty much from the start of WoB. Kari and I are on a common forum.

    Actually, my memory isn’t entirely clear on this, but I’m quite sure that I met Kari in real life on the same day I met you in real life!

    Comment by fan — December 9, 2012 @ 4:40 am

  22. Just finished reading the entire archives – these are absolutely brilliant – it’s almost like reading a book. A whole novel. I’m dying to know how the story turns out…. only one every couple of days!! I’ll need to learn patience!!! xD

    Comment by Tarina — December 9, 2012 @ 5:27 am

  23. Errol: yes, Stefan was one of my earliest readers. I think he may have been one of the people who started the comic when I had only about five or six strips up, though I could be wrong about that. It’s quite funny that you may have met me and Errol on the same day (years before I ever knew Errol existed).

    Tarina: I’m glad you’re enjoying the comic. I do tend towards plot arcs, even though WoB looks as if it SHOULD be a gag-a-day strip. I like building up a story and seeing where it goes. And yes, it can be difficult going from an archive binge to a thirty-seconds-every-couple-of-days reading schedule.

    Comment by Kari Maaren (@angrykem) — December 9, 2012 @ 6:08 am


    And GOOD GRIEF! Talk about a crazy connection, Stefan and Kari!

    What forum were you guys on?

    Allo Tarina!

    Comment by Errol — December 9, 2012 @ 2:08 pm

  25. Errol: we were on the Ph.D. comics forum (or, as we called it, the Phorum), which sadly doesn’t exist any more in its original form (phorm?), though there IS a back-up fan-created forum.

    Comment by Kari Maaren (@angrykem) — December 9, 2012 @ 2:10 pm

  26. Wow, how many readers DO you have Kari? 😀 Maybe I’ll meet more people from my past! 😀

    Comment by Errol — December 9, 2012 @ 6:44 pm

  27. Errol: I’m not sure. A few hundred at the most. My stat-counter is kind of unreliable. But it’s entirely possible that you’ve met some of my readers before.

    Comment by Kari Maaren (@angrykem) — December 9, 2012 @ 6:45 pm

  28. BOUNCY DALEK! Should have realized Marie would want one!

    Comment by LoreHera — December 9, 2012 @ 6:52 pm

  29. Lore Hera: Yes, that punchline was kind of a no-brainer. OF COURSE Marie wants a bouncy Dalek, and she’s probably going to move heaven and earth to get one.

    Comment by Kari Maaren (@angrykem) — December 9, 2012 @ 6:53 pm

  30. She can’t have mine. ;D

    Comment by Errol — December 9, 2012 @ 10:28 pm

  31. Errol: She may creep into your house at 3:00 a.m. and steal it. However, it’s much more likely that she will find the design online, then teach herself to crochet just so that she can have a bouncy Dalek. Marie is a really, really dedicated Doctor Who fan.

    Comment by Kari Maaren (@angrykem) — December 9, 2012 @ 10:30 pm

  32. Or she COULD ask a friend who knows how to crochet to… crochet it. 😀

    Comment by Errol — December 10, 2012 @ 5:46 am

  33. Errol: that would be waaaaaaay too easy.
