#200 Happy Anniversary With 199 Comics! Happy Anniversary With 199 Comics! Here it is! One of the largest EBC strips to date. Photoshop automation and some Python scripting helped making the giant wall of comics (EBC #1 through #199), while our heroes were added by traditional digital drawing.

Please be patient, it may take a while to load.

200 strips are done, so let's raise our glasses for the next 200.

See you tomorrow!
Fallout, Jerry; Spacebot 4000
#158 Lex Murphyi Strikes Again Lex Murphyi Strikes Again Oh no, the Appearance Generator (introduced way back in EBC #103) failed at the wrong moment. And Jerry, Monty, and Spacebot are in the Colosseum right now!

Poor Julius Maximus, now he really learns how he "knows that he doesn't know anything" (see EBC #133 for details on this piece of Socratic Philosophy).
Boldface, Terry; Dr. Mysterious; Julius Maximus
#143 The Laws Of Snorebotics The Laws Of Snorebotics Well, that last conclusion depends on how time travel works. In "Back to the Future," Jerry would now start to grow more and more transparent. In the EBC universe, though, the effects of the time travel have already happened in the very past where our heroes traveled to. Or have they? 80s Moviegoer who looks like Jerry; Fallout, Jerry; Spacebot 4000
#133 The More You Learn, The Less You Know... The More You Learn, The Less You Know... It truly takes a wise man to realize that you can never know enough. You can't even know "a lot," compared to all the knowledge there is, and especially, compared to everything there could be to know once someone finally figures it out.

It may take an even wiser man to go on trying despite this knowledge. I mean, just imagine how enormous the Universe is, and how small you are, compared to it. Or rather don't imagine it -- in Douglas Adams' "The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy," there is a device called the Total Perspective Vortex that shows you exactly this -- and everyone who ever suffers it goes completely crazy.
Dr. Mysterious; Julius Maximus; Marcus
