|#214||Nevermind And Chill!||Looks like Monty has discovered Chandler's old TV set. While it's not too impressive in our eyes, just remember that Monty has come there from the year 1985. The Nevermind Corporation obviously dominates the entertainment industry as well; they're the Netflix/iTunes/YouTube/Steam/etc. of their time.
By the way, since you can't really see them well enough in the comic, here are the choices the start screen offers:
The Last Man In The West
Two Kids, No Job, No Money
Beethoven In Space
The Castle Walls
"Summer Sounds, Vol. 14" by System 46
"Happiness" by Riley McClane
"One Down, Four To Go" by Lemonade
"Songs About Adam" by The Australian Maroon 5 Show
"Yo Virus" by Hoopster
As for the games, we're not too sure either.
We listened to Megadeth's new album "Dystopia" today. It's a quite solid thrash metal record, more consistent than 2013's effort, "Super Collider," which couldn't seem to decide about the genre it wanted to belong to (but is still a nice album). Have you noticed how similar the cover artworks for "Dystopia" and Dream Theater's "The Astonishing" (which we listened to yesterday) happen to be?
The next comic, a "What If" scenario, will be uploaded tomorrow. See you then!

|#211||Clyde Barker Reviews "Star Wars: The Force Awakens"||In line with yesterday's guest strip that strongly discouraged spoilers, we've got a spoiler-free review of the latest installment in the Star Wars movie franchise.
My own thoughts about Episode VII are similar to Clyde's.
See you tomorrow!
|Barker, Clyde; Beansworth, Harry|
|#203||Public Discussion Topics Right Now||Have you noticed how EVERYONE has been talking about Star Wars for the last few weeks? Well, now that we've finally seen the new movie, The Force Awakens, we can safely tell you that it's absolutely worth it. No spoilers here though; we'll present you Clyde Barker's spoiler-free review soon.
The 90% of Star Wars conversations are made up of the following percentages:
- 40% spoilers
- 30% angrily telling those who have seen it not to spoil it for you
- 20% how everyone hopes it will be good (and how the prequels sucked -- personally, I don't think so, and I even like Jar Jar Binks!)
- 10% Who the heck are all these new characters?
|#201||The Cast Awakens||The Force is strong in them!
In anticipation of the brand new Star Wars movie, "The Force Awakens," we present a few regular EBC cast members as Jedi Knights and Spacebot as a rogue fighter with a blaster (think Han Solo made of steel).
Sorry that this strip is a few days late; we were quite busy. We will upload four more comics until Sunday though. Christmas and New Year week may contain a few specials.
|Dr. Mysterious; Fallout, Jerry; Pimple Faced Teen; Spacebot 4000|
|#200||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|
|#190||A Time For Velociraptors||A guest strip by my son Leon (thanks again!) It's two days late because it took him a while to finish it, but I think it was absolutely worth the wait. Tomorrow we'll resume with the regular EBC where Dr. Mysterious and his assistant are still in the year 2067.
Here's what Leon himself has to say about his comic:
"It's been a long time since I last had the pleasure of creating a guest strip. And I have to admit that I'm very excited. "Jurassic World" was one of my favorite movies this year, and I think that it received too much undeserved criticism.
In this comic we find Owen Grady showing off his raptors to a largely unimpressed audience, consisting of Claire and her nephews.
Owen's reaction to their behavior is not particularly pleasant, to say the least.
See you tomorrow!"

|#155||What If Media Companies Treated Theaters Like YouTube||This is kind of a sequel to EBC #125. The absurdity of media companies' customer-unfriendly behavior knows no limits.
As the Halloween specials are over, I reverted the site's theme back to normal. Next up is a Christmas theme that will be used at some point next month.
See you tomorrow with a new story from Ancient Rome!
|Barker, Clyde; Fallout, Jerry; Pimple Faced Teen; Spacebot 4000|
|#137||Blackest Knight -- 137||Today is the 42nd(!) birthday of Monty Python, so I simply had to throw in this one, especially with the number 137 (the real 1337 is still a few years away, though).
Sorry I couldn't finish a comic yesterday; it took quite some time to scan Leon's 24-Hour comic.
|#93||Summer Of Superhero Movies||Think about it -- it really is the summer of superhero movies: we already had Thor in spring, then X-Men: First Class, and now Green Lantern and Captain America.
We haven't seen Clyde Barker since EBC #34. By the way, Hyperman (Clyde's alter ego) is real within the EBC universe, but there are also comic books and movies about him. So it might turn out that Supergiant exists as well.
The anonymous superhero fighting Supergiant is not listed as a character; he's too small to be recognized.
|Barker, Clyde; Supergiant|
|#83||Family Meeting||So the guy who looks like Jerry is... Jerry's dad! (Hadn't you already guessed?). Poor Jerry -- no NES for him right now.||80s Moviegoer who looks like Jerry; Fallout, Jerry; Pimple Faced Teen's Mom; Spacebot 4000|
|#69||Back to the Back to the Future||"Back to the Future," one of my (and many other people's) favorite movies, premiered on July 3, 1985. What better date could our friends from the present have chosen to visit the 1980's?
There will be a guest strip tomorrow, so let's see on Monday what happens next (or happened next, almost 26 years ago).
|80s Moviegoer who looks like Jerry; Boldface, Terry; Dr. Mysterious; Fallout, Jerry; Female 80s Moviegoer; Male 80s Moviegoer; Spacebot 4000|
|#34||The Secret Identity Of Hyperman||In this strip, the most important information about Hyperman is revealed: His secret identity. He's a movie critic, and I bet he prefers to review Superhero movies.||Barker, Clyde; Curlhead; Fallout, Jerry; Pimple Faced Teen; Spacebot 4000|
|#4||Energy Brain Wars Episode IV: Star Wars Wars||First appearance of the geometry nerds. This time, they discuss their favorite Star Wars movies.||Ball Guy; Cube Guy; Pyramid Guy|
