  1. This is amazing and also legitimately the honest truth I can relate to because SERIOUSLY when I used to use AIM and back before I learned how to sign out of facebook chat permanently, it was always random ex-boyfriends or ex-boy-somethings who would pop up like whazzzup LONG TIME NO SEE. it makes a lot of sense that they were all ex-zombies. I love this comic.

    • I was going to post a comment along the lines of “You seem unrealistically popular with your exes”, but I guess this is more of a reflection of me having zero people to even potentially harass me online.


  2. My favorite is when a straight dude realizes I’m queer and they misinterpret that for a free pass to let out their inner misogynist. You know, ’cause “hahaha women, amirite?!”

    • Yes, this happens to me all the time! Last year I had a male colleague who constantly started conversations along the “women, amirite?” lines (probably because he and I were the only two people on staff who dated women) and expected me to agree with his misogynistic drivel for some reason. Why do they do that?

  3. I’m really in love with this Saturday Morning cartoon thing. And ex-boyfriend zombies are a REAL THING, I swear.

  4. Hahaha! Brilliant!

    Though I must confess it’s always me asking my friends if we could go to the Abbey and one time I asked my ex if he could give me advice on the ladies (worst.idea.ever.)

  5. hahahaha the last panel is so accurate. There’s just nothing like being out and queer for making old acquaintances come up and think they can ask lots of personal questions and/or rely on you for answers about sexuality and/or project their insecurities on you and/or subject you to the other side of sexism and expect you to join in.

  6. Hahaha this was great. TOOO Perfect. Although I don’t have exes hunting me down asking to date… but just so many guys in general don’t even get it.
