@Onyxlight: Originally, before I started drawing the comic and I was sending Gibson character design sketches, I only had those marks on her face to show she'd lived a hard life. When it came time to start showing the progressive transformation of young Ellis into present Ellis, I did actively decide that the marks under her eyes would be the result of Joe's attack. Good catch!

We already know she doesn't. At least, not here. No idea if she is going to die on Tim in his apartment. Can't wait to see, though.

This story is so awesome...

Once upon a time, when Our Time in Eden existed only as a prose novel, I passed around this chapter to a few people as a standalone short story to get some feedback. The last line of the novel version of the chapter then was "I think of you fondly, Tim, as I lay in the aisle, dying." This was the only time Tim's name was mentioned in the chapter, and I forgot to remove it from the short story, so nearly everyone came back immediately with "Who the fuck is Tim?" The one reader who had a different reaction was a friend named Tim who was very worried I had written him an elaborate suicide note.

I suppose everyone was too distracted at the time to notice the grammatical error, which is fixed here.

@Gibson Twist are the Marks on her face scars from the Joe attack or age and wear from the drugs and not taking care of herself?

I was hoping all would be clear to me as I reread this but it isn't. If those aren't scars I often wondered why she "was left to ugly" to dance again once she healed.

I cannot wait for the next five pages!
Just wanted to drop in and say how much I've enjoyed your work over the years, I'm really looking forward to the rest of the story.

This story is amazing, the art is incredible, and I can't wait to see if they can find each other amidst all the scars. Not to be happy, but maybe to just be not miserable. Well done both of you

Since I first read Gibson's original script, this was one of the pages I was looking forward to the most, because I wanted Biz's death to be grotesque. My plan was to go full gore-porn on this shot. As we drew closer to actually making the page, though, it became apparent that it just would've been too much of a departure from the tone of the book. Ah well. I'm sure there are more zombie comics in my future.

This scene was worth the wait. So much tragedy. And it embodies the end of Biz's downward spiral perfectly.

I love PoY, but the amount of absolute heart and emotion in this story is amazing.

Ben and I went back and forth about how graphic to make this page. I think we each held different thoughts at different times, but I think at the end it was Ben who decided too much gore would be out of character for the story, and when he showed me his thumbnail for the page, I knew he was right. I still think he was right.

Did either of them ever have any time in anything that could be considered Eden? These poor kids are having terrible experiences - I hope they can see their way past these traumas and maybe find some peace with each other,

Love this story. It's haunting and beautiful and achingly sad. Well done all around.

I feel this has almost hit the point "where we came in" She looks like and is wearing what she stumbled into the church in, in the beginning if I am not mistaken.

Re: 43
Yay, thank you for the new page!! So intense! Wow, this is sure feeling like Biz is at the end of his rope. Sorry to hear about your rough time Gibson. :( I hope things get better sooner than later.

I won't lie, I've been going through some shit, so anything that's going wrong is probably my fault and I don't have a good reason for it. Chances are good I feel bad about it. If you need to yell at me or call me names, I'm gibson_twistATyahoodotcom.

@DizzyMuse: Oh, don't worry, we'll keep pushing at this until it's done! ALSO, new page coming pretty soon.
