#618 Home Alone

Who would have thought we'd see the return of Beth's little friend from here. And on a completely non-sequitur note- It's come to my attention (and anal retentiveness) that because time does in fact move forward on this comic, although slowly, I think I should give more specific ages for the characters in the hope that it will benefit the comic. And although most of them are very close of age to each other (since the original characters all graduated together) I still thought it was important to put it out there as well as their birth month (and corresponding astrological sign for those who really want excessive character details) Who knows. Maybe some of you out there will find it mildly interesting. So as of the beginning of this chapter (book 5)... Emrys -  Just turned 25/ Late June-Cancer Mateo - 24/November-Scorpio Jeff - 24/ August-Leo Dave - 23/ September - Virgo Shannon- 24/Late May - Gemini Beth - 24 /May - Taurus (Shannon and Beth share birthdays that are only 3 days apart from each other) Devon - 24/ Late October - Scorpio Annabel - 23/ March - Pisces JoJo - 23/ February - Aquarius Stephanie - 23/ October - Libra Mark - 24 at the time of his death/ January - Cappricorn Rich - 24/ December - Sagittarius Katie -18*/ April - Aries
  • This is a correction from the comic of a few days ago where Beth states that her sister is not even 18 yet where in fact she must have turned 18 two months prior.
McKrakkin - 823. (I kid, of course. She's much older than that. Who knows what month she was born in. Did they even have calendars when she was born?   So with that, Emrys is oddly the oldest of the group with Jeff next to turn 25 in late summer and Mateo and Devon following the quarter of a century mark in the fall.

  1. I want blood types now.

    Seriously though, Beth is more industrious than I am, since laundry is not my first thought if I get the house to myself. She doesn’t seem to be particularly enjoying herself in the last panel, though – it seems more like a duty.

      I was wondering if the joke was going to come across. -The batteries died. -Womp womp.

      1. Her expression told me exactly what you were trying to achieve. 😉

  2. Aha! Beth is a Taurus (earth sign), which must be one of the reasons I’m fonder of her than the others (I’m a pisces), because I tend to gravitate toward more grounded individuals in my friendships, though not exclusively. I’m not sure what other people would guess about me, astrologically speaking, but it would probably depend upon how well they know me. Just reading up on character traits for myself, it’s surprising how many of them are on target with little or no variation.

    Anyhow, it looks like Beth should be happy in her routine, even if she probably needs to mix it up a little bit with something fun for her; treat herself, in other words.

      Despite being lonely sometimes (like all of us are from time to time), she’s still practical. She’s still Beth.

      1. And that’s one of her best traits. 🙂

  3. Disasters come in threes, they say. 😉

  4. Going back it’s always interesting to see the way the art has evolved

      Hopefully for the better. 😉
