+EV is "A Poker Comic with Positive Expected Value." (Hint: +EV is the common abbreviation for "positive expected value".) About professional online poker player Corbin, his family, his poker buddies and several prominent poker players.

+EV contains examples of:

  • Beginner's Luck: Seems to be the explanation for the successes of, if not Scarlett, then at least for Harold and Clancy.
  • Catchphrase: Violet's "I think I want a divorce" qualifies to the point she lampshades it when Corbin calls her a "dink" in a text message.
  • Child Prodigy: Scarlett, who's following in her father's footsteps.
  • Dystopian Edict: But why are people punished by hanging just for mentioning poker?
  • Take That!: is Gold Coast really that shitty? No idea.
  • Theme Naming: Corbin's wife's name is Violet. Her first daughter is Scarlett, which is a shade of red. And violet is a mixture of red and blue. So it was logical to give their second daughter a name that's a shade of blue, and thus she was named... Ultramarine!
