    Be interesting to see if he passes out again. Eye injuries are like that.

  3. Rockingfella says:

    I hope the Jakes get to him quick or Ben is going to lose all his stuff. And he seemed pretty determined that he keep it.

  4. Hanna says:

    Ok, Jakes, Reagan or, hell, even Dr. Bash or Scip should show up now when EJ is still dazed and confused.

  5. Kelsey says:

    Ben dies. BAM end of webcomic. Oh snap.

  6. theotherone says:

    Jakes come down, see A: EJ, B: EJ with their gun, C: Ben beaten bloody.

    Hijinks ensue.

  7. OmegaForte says:

    Like I said before. 9×18 and a Makarov PB will fix this.

  8. Arsnof says:

    Oh, jeeze. Someone call the whaaaambulance, we’ve got a crier over here.

    Also a possible concussion. Might need a regular ambulance, though.

  9. Jamly says:

    Ben’s out for the count, poor guy. It doesn’t matter how latently crazy you are–head injuries are gonna catch up. Also, nobody feels sorry for you, EJ. Except yourself, I guess.

    The Jakes sure are taking their time… I hope they ambush him in the hall or something.

    • Bellar says:

      It will be perfect timing, he’s just picked up the “gun” and is leaving the scene of the crime.

      I know that there’s a chance he might slip away, but if he get’s off without running into Jakes I will be sorely disappointed.

  10. norm says:

    EJ will never be seen again, and poor Ben’s going to wake up Jake.

  11. Yuniecorn says:

    I can’t quite figure what EJ has in his hand in the last panel…

  12. Annis says:

    I swear, I honestly have tried to be sympathetic to EJ as a character in the past. Now I just want the little bastard to drop dead, AFTER he drops that damn bag and leaves poor Ben alone.

  13. EmiDee says:

    Poor baby, his eye hurts ‘n stuff… Ben, stop being all dead! S’not like YOUR eye hurts, just your whole face!

  14. Thomas Maher says:

    Is there a link to the Templar Google site that you had the hypertext link to last comic? I bookmarked it directly, but I don’t think I could find it again.

  16. Tod Stile, (I have run out of witty titles) says:

    Nice touch on EJ’s scars and scratches. He just keeps winding down that road, oblivious, caught in a vacuum.

  17. Linda says:

    Wow. He’s crying. I never expected that from him. I guess it’s time to “vanish old resentments” eh? Or to get new ones …

    Oh EJ, those things you are carrying are not important anymore. Because I think you won’t make it to the door.

    • Homa Sapiens says:

      You think you could lose an eye and not cry from the pain?

    • Hanna says:

      I don’t think he’s crying in the sense of emotional distress. If you’ve ever had the tiniest piece of dirt in your eye, you’ll know the tears flow like crazy. And EJ just had a thumb in his eye. Methinks his eyes may be watering a bit, thus making it look like he’s crying.

    • Pi says:

      Pretty sure that’s eye goo, not tears.

  18. lokabrenna says:

    I know all the shit EJ’s done, and I know he started this fight and had a hideous eye injury coming, but… nope, still not done feeling sorry for him. He’s a teenage rent boy whose only friend is an aging heroin addict who keeps trying to ditch him, and who he’d do literally anything for. There are kinds of fucked up that led him to this situation and to the kind of person he is that I can’t even begin to imagine.

    It doesn’t justify anything he’s done, but it does mean that I can’t take any kind of schadenfreude from his suffering. I feel bad for him.

    • FrankNW says:

      …And there ya go. The voice of wisdom.

    • Bellar says:

      I know what you mean.

      I want to see what the Jakeskin do with him before I get an appropriate amount of schadenfreude out of his suffering. ;P

    • C. Mage says:

      I’m ready to forgive the little punk myself, but forgiving the sin doesn’t absolve you of the consequences of it. I may forgive you for breaking into my apartment and stealing my TV, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want my TV back, nor does it mean that i don’t think you shouldn’t be put in jail as punishment.

      • Bellar says:

        I think you may be thinking of a word other than forgive.

        Or perhaps thinking of the way religious forgiveness and law interact, in which one party forgives and the other does not.

        Forgiving is an absolution of blame, guilt, or consequences. Which is why if you are forgiven a sin, you are not punished by your deity. Law on the other hand, does not forgive; you are either guilty and punished, or innocent and not punished.

  19. Bob says:

    Some how it looks so wrong but i should get my mind out of the gutter.

  20. C. Mage says:

    No, things are NOT going to be all right, EJ. Not for you.

    Not if there is any justice in the world.

  21. Slothrop says:

    EJ, oh EJ, you’re such a sorry mess.
    Your crimes and sins are stackin’ up. You really must confess.
    You’re rude, crude and out of bounds.
    Your attitude hands out bumpy crowns.
    You feed on pain, anger and distress.
    How you’ve made it this far I can only guess.
    At such a rate you won’t have long
    ‘Til someone serves you up your wrongs.

  22. Roknese says:

    If EJ gets away, i might have to stop reading the comic. seriously, he needs to die. im getting sick of his stupid, sorry ass. i dont care what problems he has, i dont care about his past, i dont care about if this is the only way he knows to survive.

    someone needs to catch him after this. its the final straw, the one that makes me just tired of him as a character and ready to see him finally die. im seriously sick of reading anything about him, and am very much ready to see him gone and move on to more important and interesting storylines.

    like his funeral.

  23. Hanna says:

    Happy New Year, everyone, even if it’s probably not so happy for the Templar residents. And although it’s tempting to think otherwise, the Mayan world end thing was mistranslated. :-P
