->'''Delaine:''' Apparently your little trip didn't go exactly as planned. Wait, for that you'd actually need a plan.
->'''Kyran:''' So... that means I could consider it a success.

''[[http://www.eecomics.net/ Emergency Exit]]'' ([[http://eecomics.net/EEArchives/?strip_id=1 first strip]]) is the primary webcomic of NJ Huff. Initially a [[AbsurdityAscendant very random]] gag comic, it successfully pulled a half-[[CerebusSyndrome Cerebus]] to become a story and humor comic. Basically, it's about the residents of an apartment building guarding a [[WeirdnessMagnet portal]] to [[AnotherDimension other worlds]], with lots of [[MundaneFantastic general weirdness]] and even [[ItRunsOnNonsensoleum downright absurdity]].

As the dramatic narrative elements have matured, so has the art style. In August, 2009 the artist replaced the first 12 pages with a new intro storyline to help new readers adapt to this. One of the biggest influences in its evolution seems to be the massive crossover with Ben Fleuter's somber ''ParallelDementia'' from [[http://eecomics.net/EEArchives/?strip_id=595 2006-12-25]] to [[http://eecomics.net/EEArchives/?strip_id=724 2007-06-14]] seemed to bring out the best in both webcomickers.

The comic went on a two-month long hiatus before starting a semi-reboot on July 1st, 2011, the comic's eighth birthday. The artist said that she was sick of the confusing continuity of the old comics, and wanted to start looking at doing something more serious with the comic.

Be warned / encouraged, it has LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters. Here are the main protagonists, who all live in the same apartment building:

* Bob [=McKile=] is just your average, ordinary, orange-haired CelibateHero with a SuperpoweredEvilSide.
* Eddie is a tall CloudCuckooLander with a HyperspaceMallet. He's also a MadScientist with a lab and everything -- for example, he can make a "[[RuleOfCool coolness]] [[AppliedPhlebotinum enhancer]]" that actually ''[[ExactlyWhatitSaysontheTin works]]'', just like that -- but that doesn't really apply outside of his lab, so he's rarely TheSmartGuy.
* Saya Caelan is a purple-haired DeadpanSnarker and BadassNormal.
* Karl Tameron is a green-haired gamer geek and techie who controls their most important AppliedPhlebotinum.
* Sal Declan is Bob's cousin and an orange-haired witch.
* Fred is a light brown cat. Excellent gamer and one of the smartest people in the building, but only Karl can understand her, even when Sal turns her into a CatGirl. TeamPet.
* Jason Saskia is a late addition with black hair. Ex-circus. Kind of [[CampGay gay]] (although he did say he was "open to either"), with an obvious crush on Karl. Originally a DropInCharacter, but has come into the main cast.
----
Provide examples of:
* AffablyEvil - Kyran
* AlienBlood - It was recently revealed that Merfs have [[http://eecomics.net/EEArchives/?strip_id=1097 black blood]]. Although Vladic says he "wouldn't say it's the same thing as blood, but close enough."
** Apparently, their blood also [[http://eecomics.net/EEArchives/?strip_id=1098 smells like licorice]].
* AmbiguouslyGay - Jason, at first.
* AnotherDimension - In Karl's cupboard.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking - [[http://eecomics.net/EEArchives/?strip_id=672 Don't touch the hair.]]
* ArtEvolution
* AuthorExistenceFailure: NJ Huff suffered a bad back injury which was the main cause of the SeriesHiatus.
* BloodyHilarious [=/=] HighPressureBlood
** Stabs a medusa in the head. "Ew! Snakes! (pulls out gun) *Blam* *Blam* *Blam*"
** "...Head hurts." "I would think so."
* BuffySpeak - good examples [[http://eecomics.net/EEArchives/?strip_id=288 here]] and [[http://eecomics.net/EEArchives?strip_id=1053 here]].
* CloudCuckooLander - Eddie
** Kyran too, to a lesser extent. It comes out most prominently when he's talking with Eddie.
* CrossOver: Multiple, each serving to further the plot.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass - Well... just for the trifecta, it's Eddie once more.
* DeadpanSnarker - Saya.
* DrowningMySorrows: Rather than doing so with alcohol, characters seem to do so with food.
* EmotionlessGirl - Saya.
* EnemyMime: Twice so far.
* EnemyWithout: [[spoiler:Karl]] gains one.
* EvilOverlordList: Kyran apparently reads it, specifically the part about having a fifth grader look over your plans before putting them into action. Good thing too; his plans are terrible.
* EyesAlwaysShut - Harvoc, the mailman with a hook for a hand.
** He recently opened them, which apparently means ''death''.
* TheFaceless - Played with in [[http://eecomics.net/EEArchives/?strip_id=1116 this]] strip. Kyran deliberately uses very dim lighting to create a sinister atmosphere for his guest. The guest, however, would really rather just have some lights on.
* FanNickname - [[spoiler: Karl's EnemyWithout]] has been nicknamed Darl, and the shipping thread calls [[http://eecomics.net/EEArchives/?strip_id=838 this squirrel]] Bill.
* FeelNoPain - Vladic implies [[spoiler:Eddie [[http://eecomics.net/EEArchives/?strip_id=1111 can do this at will for a period of time]].]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Occasionally; minor example would be [[http://eecomics.net/EEArchives/?strip_id=360 this]]. Might double as a BrickJoke.
* FusionDance - [[spoiler:Regfarious!]]
* GenkiGirl - Orulla. She just doesn't really ''get'' the point of stalking someone.
* GilliganCut: Kyran kisses Delaine on the cheek. Cut to him talking to Jurinjo--"[[http://eecomics.net/EEArchives/?strip_id=1124 And that's how I found out I'm bulletproof!]]"
* GodsNeedPrayerBadly - Gods, apparently, embody one emotion or another. The more people who feel that way towards them, the stronger they are. For example [[spoiler: Lord Kyran]] is a god of hate; therefore, he goes to a great deal of effort to try and make every mortal he comes across hate him. [[CloudCuckooLander It doesn't always work out that way]].
* GroinAttack - Saya does this to a squirrel while shrinked.
* HairyHammerspace - Eddie ([[http://eecomics.net/EEArchives/?strip_id=1030 literally!]])
* [[spoiler:HealingFactor - Eddie, [[http://eecomics.net/EEArchives/?strip_id=1111 apparently]].]]
* HealingHands - Jurinjo, Kyran [[spoiler: and Sal, sort of.]]
* HookHand - Harvoc.
* HyperspaceMallet - Eddie.
* ItRunsOnNonsensoleum - Eddie's "Coolness Enhancers".
* ImpossiblyCoolWeapon - Eddie's coolness enhancer has the potential to turn any weapon into one of these, but the best example is when it turns his HyperspaceMallet into [[http://eecomics.net/EEArchives/?strip_id=1005 twin double-headed hammer-chucks.]] Which he swings around with ''way'' more skill than he has any right to.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold - Vladic, apparently, especially when Eddie's involved.
* LargeHam: Lord Kyran is probably the worst offender, insisting on things such as dramatically dim lighting to obscure the features of villains.
* MacGuffinDeliveryService - Lord Kyran's preferred method. Though it hardly works, it allows him to try and keep his enemies alive whenever necessary.
* MadScientist - Eddie, and apparently Karl.
* TheMedic - Jurinjo is a sort of Villainous version.
* MinionWithAnFInEvil - Jurinjo, Orulla.
* MoodWhiplash: [[http://eecomics.net/EEArchives/?strip_id=1107 Here]] especially.
* [[BrickJoke Mug Joke]]: Also with beets.
* MundaneFantastic
* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: [[http://eecomics.net/EEArchives/?strip_id=993 Uhh...]]
* PistolWhipping - Evidently, Delaine doing this is the [[http://eecomics.net/EEArchives/?strip_id=1021 only way to stop a crazed Eddie.]]
* RocksFallEveryoneDies - [[http://eecomics.net/EEArchives/?strip_id=503 Don't kill the final boss on your first hit.]]
* RuleOfCool - The Coolness Enhancer.
* RuleOfFunny - And how!
* SeriesHiatus: As a result of [[AuthorExistenceFailure a bad back injury]], NJ Huff was left unable to continue Emergency Exit.
* ShipTease: Saya with Eddie, Kyran with Delaine, and Jurinjo with Orulla.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide - Nefarious is Bob's.
* SweetTooth - Nefarious can be prevented from murderous rampages by being given candy.
* {{Tearjerker}} - [[http://eecomics.net/EEArchives/?strip_id=1067 This.]]
* ThirdPersonPerson: Lampshaded by NJ Huff when she used it [[http://www.eecomics.net/?strip_id=35 when announcing the hiatus]].
* TransformingMecha - Karl's couch.
* UnfazedEveryman [=/=] BadassNormal - Saya and Jason. Also Delaine on Team Evil.
** That's right, a ''gay clown'' is this group's idea of normal. Love it!
** Not just normal, but "fairly boring, considering."!
* WebcomicTime - A recent day in the story has taken up two years real time and over 250 pages.
* WeirdnessCensor - The Apartment.
* WeirdnessMagnet - The apartment building and everyone in it.
* WrittenRoar - provided the page pic.
* YouMeddlingKids - said by a villain in [[http://eecomics.net/EEArchives/?strip_id=1060 this]] strip.
