Someone who was there? Want to share what happened? Also, I know it's a bad thing to do, but I just gotta say, Premiere! 13:02, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

"The comic was changed after the date mentioned within it; the last speech bubble was different.."

I'm looking at it in the Wayback Machine, and it looks the same to me 09:44, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
The web version is different indeed from the book (Friend : "And there was nobody there?" / Cueball : "There never is.") 20:43, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

Is it just me, or does the upper right panel look a lot like what happens in comic 82? (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

It does -- Z1mp0st0rz (talk) 15:18, 24 April 2024 (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

The instigating dream, in addition to the romantic subplot, also had an apocalypse going on. If, indeed, the dream was a premonition to the actual event, presumably, the apocalypse will have to occur as well. The joke, as I see it, has the dreamer so wishing that the girl-meeting event will transpire, that he neglects to also consider the very major downside of the end of the world...

It could also just be the collapse of the dream instead of a premonition of their meeting. They were waking up, so she had to find a way to meet in real life. -- Flewk (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
It says a dying world though. Which suggests that the world was ending even within the context of the dream. 03:35, 23 December 2023 (UTC)

The movie knowing(2009) with nicolas cage has exactly the same idea. There are numbers telling the date and location and number of deaths for every disaster before the final apocalypse. Is this a coincidence? --Gfrodo (talk) 14:49, 12 March 2016 (UTC)

One small problem; this comic came out in 2007. So no. R3TRI8UTI0N (talk) 03:26, 16 January 2024 (UTC)
