@MK_Wizard: That is horrible but its way more common than people think especially in abusive households :(
I'm so excited to see an update! YAY!!!
@Guest: Hey, if you're serious about getting print copies, we've printed the first 4 chapters so far. Send Gibson or I a private message if you're interested.

Oh Lord. That is just... that's horrible. It's as though they replaced her.
incredible comic.
I'll have to re-read it all though, for the long waits between updates :) but it's so much worth it. hope I'll be able to do that re-reading with a print copy...!!
I read a lot of comics online, and rarely do I really care for a print, but this begs for one, hardcover luxury and all :D
yaaaaaay!!! so excited!! can't wait to see what happens next!! <3
I've loved this story since I found it years ago, so excited to see how it ends!
Final chapter? I am all about it. This is the best story. I love it to pieces. Please proceed, gentlemen!!!
I haven't checked this comic in years, so glad to see that it's still updating and that we've come so far. Excited to see what happens next!
Hey! Not dead! Excellent!
Some truth, I haven't spoken to my father in more than 20 years, and from time to time I speculate that he and his wife may have had children, and that I may have a sibling I've never met. Probably I don't, chances are best that I would have heard through other family, but it's possible. Honestly, though, I'm not sure how I'd feel if I did. The idea of siblings is bizarre.
Here we begin the final chapter of Our Time in Eden. It's been a long road, I hope you're buckled in.

Yeah, we've come full circle now. If you go back to the first pages of the story, you see her stumbling into this very scene.

I feel you tho. I'm both incredibly excited and also quietly dreading the next parts, afraid to hope.

@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.
