I’m 30 tomorrow! I am celebrating by drawing people smashing pickled eggs on each other apparently.

Also, Widdershins Vol 3 is on comixology now!

Support the comic, buy some neat swag!

  • Happy Birthday! Hope you aren’t worried by an arbitrary milestone. Remember, 30 is just the age at which a pretty girl turns into a beautiful woman.

  • Sir_Krackalot

    Oh yeah. Gotta get me summa dat old-time chokehold.

  • TimTylor

    I haven’t had a pickled egg in forever.

  • Timni16

    Aww that big guy is a big sweetie! Not know what a movie is!

  • TrueWolves

    Crack theory! Turns out that Rosie never actually released her book yet, and the events that happened to her here inspired her to finally do so, where the book was successful, stable time loop go!

    • Haven

      Rosie mentioned she’s already sent it off to the publishers, though (in the December 13th comic).

  • Sam

    Happy Birthday. Pickled eggs wouldn’t be my go to in way of celebrating but hey to each their own. :) Hope you have a good one.

  • DarknessRainbow

    Happy birthday! Thirty is a very reasonable age. :D

  • JWLM

    Pickled eggs, red cabbage…no wonder the food in the hotel was so bad.

    • The Occupant

      Are you kidding? Both are delicious!

  • Curtis

    Happy Birthday! Pickled eggs – something to put in the desert basket on Chopped.

  • Ted

    Hey! Pickled eggs in pickled beet juice is f’ing delicious! :D

  • Oarboar

    Oh, hey, I totally called this. Only +.5 for me because obvious.

    Nice proper chokehold by Sam, cutting off the airway instead of the blood supply. OK, Sam probably did that by accident from his POV, but good for him.

    And the last line actually did make me laugh out loud.

    Oh, and happy birthday!

  • Coley

    Happy birthday! awesome comic as well ;)

  • Del

    Having a food fight on your 30th Birthday! — I wish I had thought of that….

  • Sessine

    Echoing the Happy Birthday wishes. Have a great day tomorrow! Also, yay for Ethan getting to contribute something useful to the fight — even if it was only a distraction.

    Memo for next time to Butler: no matter how annoying the shrimpy little guy might get, don’t turn your back on the big guy who’s got bar fighting down to a fine art.

    • David Argall

      Memo 2: Be a gorilla instead of just looking like one.

  • Sortelli


  • Darkoneko Hellsing

    “What’s a movie ?” really sold it :D

    Happy birthday ! since we’re already tomorrow

  • NightSprite

    I rather like pickled eggs!

    Oh, and many happy returns! I baked you a cake, but, well you know!

  • idonotlikepeas

    Best possible birthday celebration. Many happy returns!

  • Sanjay Merchant

    30? Hooray for Renewal!

  • RazorD9

    It’s a smashing good way to celebrate.

    Huh, 30 eh? I recall when I turn 30 like it was yesterday… actually been over two weeks. Made a coconut layer cake from scratch, coconut and all. Best cake ever and got to use power tools. Wishing a happy one and plenty of opportunities to drill holes into fruits.

  • Raza

    Happy 30th Birthday! I wish you a fun time!

    But no, that choke isn’t quite right. In that position, the gorilla dude does not have pressure on his carotid arteries, so he wouldn’t faint within a few seconds, and he would have minutes to escape since it looks like an air choke. And it looks like the medieval man doesn’t have a good grip, so it would be easy to escape.

  • I’m going to second that “don’t dis pickled eggs” thing

    The masses have spoken!

  • Frankie D.

    Merry Eggsmash!

  • wwlaos

    Happy Birthday! I hope you have a wonderful year! :D

    Just remember, no matter how old you get, you’ll still be younger than me. :p

  • Storyteller

    I have had many good reports concerning red cabbage and pickled eggs.:)

  • Rook

    Clearly it didn’t work because not having seen a movie before they wouldn’t have known getting hit in the head with a heavy jar was supposed to knock you out.

  • Pirate_Prince_Navarion

    Happy Birthday! And now I want to try pickled eggs. But I’ve never seen any….

    • Dud

      Make your own – the old fashioned way is best (lots of wimpy ‘quick’ recipes out there but they miss the point and most of the flavour.)
      Use some good quality eggs which have been kept at room temperature for at least a week. (Never put eggs in a fridge)
      Hard boil the eggs for 15-20 minutes. Place in cold water to cool fast or they will discolour (I never bother, it’s only cosmetic.)
      Boil your preferred selection of pickling spices in as little water as possible for 15 minutes to extract flavour, when the water is nearly exhausted fill pan with MALT VINEGAR (beer vinegar) and bring to pastuerising temperature, don’t let it boil unless you wish to test your gas mask…
      Peel shell from eggs, place in sterilised jar, cover with hot, spiced vinegar and seal. Turn the jar once a day for the first fortnight to ensure even coverage.
      These will be ready in about three weeks at room temperature and they will keep at least three months before they get too strong.

  • Volk0v

    Hey, he’s wearing his wedding ring again!

    • Darkoneko Hellsing

      Oooh i didn’t notice *rechecks the pages since when he sneaked out the kitchen*

  • Nonecallmetim

    Happy Birthday.

    I received my book, pin and postcard yesterday, so it is kinda like I got your present!

  • Gardan Blue

    Happy Birthday!

  • TheFOX

    Happy 30th yesterday. I turned 72 five days earlier – I spent a goodly portion of the day buying cat stuff instead of “me” stuff.

  • Nick Godby

    Happy Birthday Belated.. Im From the future…;)

  • Sanjay Merchant

    Now that we know more about the Butler’s history and identity, we can safely say that you should never send a man to woman’s job. #MsSuperbiaWouldveWon

  • I kinda like pickled eggs.
