    COMIC 400 IS HERE!!

    I can’t believe we’ve reached four hundred comics already, it doesn’t seem like that long since I started exocomics! Jordan and I have spent a long time working on 400 so we really hope that you enjoy it.

    If it’s not working properly for you then leave us a comment and tell us what’s gone wrong along with your device, OS, and browser version and we’ll try to fix it. If you have an older device or it’s too slow, here is a simple version.

    400 will be up for two weeks, so the next comic will be on the 25th of November. In the meantime, you can follow me on facebook, instagram and twitter if you want to see more of my art.

    Also just a reminder that if you want to support my work, you can do so on Patreon! I post a lot of behind the scenes stuff as well as written posts there.

    Lastly, Christmas is coming up so if you want to purchase anything from the store, do it soon! Postage can be slow at this time of the year so it’s best to get in early.

    Thanks everyone! :D

    As soon as he walked in, I knew that cat was trouble. He had a tail that reached heaven and a purr that wouldn't quit. I would have given anything to rub that soft belly of his... but I had to be strong. I'm a detective.

    I love how the juice straw gets more and more intricate, complex, and morally ambiguous over time. JUST LIKE THE CASE.

    That was great! I watched The Maltese Falcon recently but this was a much better detective story. That movie has like zero cats! You need to sell at "Don't Molest The Fruit" print. I would totally put that in my kitchen.

    If there is any possibility that this can be printed and made into a little book i would buy it...just saying...also i want sequels!! This is everything i ever wanted to read, great job :))

  • Kilby
    13 Nov '15

    I agree with rudeberry: This story needs to be a book, printed on real paper, and not just online.

    P.S. If you do print it, please increase the legibility of the note at the end of the story.

    I absolutely love this. You HAVE to make the "don't molest the fruit" sign into a poster available in your store.

  • MishMash
    14 Nov '15

    Ohhhhhhh my goshhhhh....
    So the first thing I saw was a "#400 is loading" picture, and got kind of disappointed if that was the real thing.

    Then it loaded and I saw the picture of the comic on the desk. I appreciated the artwork but felt confused at the comic cover, feeling like I was missing some sort of inside comic joke...

    After reading the comments, I was seriously confused. Juice box? Don't molest the fruit poster?

    And then.... I realized you could click on the comic and HOLY EXO THIS IS AMAZING!

    I love love love this, Li and Jordan (cough I mean, sweets) This shall be bookmarked and forever enjoyed over and over. I too agree that a real life "Don't molest the fruit" poster/print would be soooooo awesomesauce :3

  • PseudoSsiah
    15 Nov '15

    ZOMFG! That was great. Totally was not expecting that! Also, I agree with Tyler. I want a "Don't molest the fruit" sign!

    Omg I haven't been here in like three years, how I have missed your comic.

  • Marc
    22 Nov '15

    First of all, I love your comics! However, it looks like I will have to make do with the "simple" version, because:

    I get a cross-origin error with Firefox 42 under Linux (on a desktop):

    Quellübergreifende (Cross-Origin) Anfrage blockiert: Die Gleiche-Quelle-Regel verbietet das Lesen der externen Ressource auf (Grund: CORS-Kopfzeile 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' fehlt).

    Sorry for the German, but perhaps you get the gist of it. If not: the same-origin-rule is blocking access to TweenMax.min.js because the CORS-header 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' is missing.

    The other two errors I get after that are most likely a result of this error ("RSync: 1/16 - 'gsap' failed" and "ReferenceError: Expo is not defined").
