hmmm this chapter seems so..so different from the rest of the series.it seems like it’s just like an intros and focusses on showing tehc hara instead of as well keeping with the storie.
the it is neet and the art is exelent.And I love what you did on the final page and went back to drawing it likwe it was in late 06

This chapter looks fantastic now, it feels so much more exciting to read.
vertMB November 2, 2009, 9:44 PM EST.
This chapter is amazing. I like it a lot and the way you were able to introduce all the main characters in such a limited amount of pages was great. Especially since the personalities were amazingly defined. I liked the fact that you made the art move back into the shadeless and box like style of the beginning. I don’t even remember how I stumbled upon this comic, but I’ve loved it for years.
Keep it up!

PARK BEARS D8

I honestly did not feel that much life into the older comics. Then again, its the beginning of a great bittersweet bowl ‘o life and any new comic tends too be bland in the beginning. But with age comes experience like all of us going through life.
With that in mind if you remember waaaay back in Elementary, Grammar, whatever you called it, School you can somewhat remember how bland our day too day life was.
I feel it wasn’t until middle school that our life became interesting.
Just my two cents.
“They’ll summon park bears!” David never ceases too amuse me. x)

wait… why does it get sorta crrappy at the end of the pg
jefe March 15, 2010, 3:08 AM EST.
this ending could be nice at another time too... if that happens... you know the *cough* end of the comic. *cough* It would be good though.

THIS POST CONTAINS INFORMATION SOME MAY CONCIDER ‘SPOILERIFFIC’ IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY READ THE WHOLE THING.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
You know… Going back and reading this after having read the rest of the series… It almost feels like this happens AFTER everything… Sort of like what Phillip was saying…
There’s definitely elements that point to that not being true, like Paulo still being the way he is, and Mike still being that protective… But it always confused me as to why she got on the skateboard when I first read it, as she clearly dislikes Paulo from here on out… But it sort of makes sense if it occurs sometime after “Back And Forth”…
I don’t know… Maybe I’m just babbling ^^;

If you took out the character development from the current comic, this could be like…the end.

Okay,I’ve re-re-re-read the comic,and now I have to ask…Has ANYONE,in the 4 years of you and Oliver making this comic,EVER offered to give it color?If not then I’d like to be the first
Phlea June 28, 2010, 12:49 AM EST.
David, you never cease to make me laugh. Not at all
This is a great chapter to start off BCB
I love the way panels 12-17 are done. Going way back to ‘06.

Hahaa. I just yesterday finished reading the archives from start to end, after getting pointed here from MSPA. This comic is FANTASTIC. nFirm new fan, hope the updates never stop! Although I hafta say the first time I read this chapter, because I had no idea who the characters were, I thought for a long time that Maishul really WAS a park ranger… Ehehe. ^-^;
Snerky September 4, 2010, 9:44 PM EST.
Mavie: I think that is very odd for you to say because Lucy was totally into Paulo a bit in the old old Unfulfilled Day comic. Like when he appears she’s all smitten by him, so I tried to keep that element of his. As well as the element of Daisy being all lovey-dovey towards Mike, and Lucy being all annoyed over it. Unfulfilled Day also pictured Lucy as more of a relaxed, kind of happy girl.. admittedly I can see what you mean in her. Unfulfilled Day Lucy was pretty happy and oblivious admittedly.
Taeshi September 7, 2010, 1:07 AM EST.
I really enjoyed this first chapter, not big on swearing however it can be over looked, anyway you have a definite talent for comic making.
I liked how David says “Paulo we don’t want to anger park rangers, they’ll summon park bears.”
I especially liked when he screamed “THEY KNOW OUR FACES!” as he ran away.
I look forward to reading the rest of the comic, now I just need to save the website.
Comic Appreciator September 18, 2010, 3:43 AM EST.
Ok, I can’t read your web comic. EVERY PAGE HAS AN ACNE AD. I hate animated, noise-making ads.
Random October 4, 2010, 9:57 PM EST.
I see the difference between “Middle School Lucy” and “High School Lucy” now. The younger version of her had a couple of whiskers on each side, prolly(ow, chatspeak) because of the fact, well, she’s a cat. And the older version of her had hair triangles at the bottom, as if she grew her fur-hair out…
Evan October 7, 2010, 7:36 AM EST.
oh noes old art style
smart-n-retarded October 13, 2010, 2:21 PM EST.

lolwut November 5, 2010, 3:02 AM EST.
Mike’s a Park Ranger?
Look at my McCaining…
GoodBurger December 16, 2010, 2:38 AM EST.
and then this is the begining of emotional spirals and confusion that can only be described as teenage drama.
Mira December 30, 2010, 6:11 PM EST.
@Idiot: It’s funny because, the way the old comic is embedded at the very end, it makes it like a perfect book ends ending.
The Other Mike (Mikaro) February 9, 2011, 7:46 PM EST.
I really miss this Mike. Now he such an A-hole. I want him back!
Katieoawsome February 21, 2011, 11:54 PM EST.
no time for dat March 19, 2011, 1:35 AM EST.
When I first read this I thought Mike was a park ranger
Cholleca April 18, 2011, 4:59 AM EST.
Nu! Not the Park Bears!
Wait, what are Park Bears?
Nishakun April 18, 2011, 1:18 PM EST.

After seeing this once more after going through the whole thing, I ask myself what ever happened to their old relationship.
Harris012 November 1, 2011, 2:27 PM EST.
Ah, when life did not suck. I miss this portion of childhood
Zyr November 23, 2011, 5:37 AM EST.

I thought only Siberian Park Rangers can summon Park Bears.
Flyboy July 27, 2012, 10:11 AM EST.
Lucy Lucy Lucy

Lloyd August 22, 2012, 2:20 PM EST.
One of my favorite panels PERIOD! btw 2nd time reading the comic =)
Someone August 30, 2012, 8:54 PM EST.
Hmm,this seems like a good story
crash September 28, 2012, 6:00 AM EST.
Sigh, i think this comic is amazing yet terrible;great art and nicely executed story plot, but I hate where the story went to where
*SPOILER ALERT (you’re welcome)*
mike is total jerk pushing his best friend away because of his stupidity, that depressed me a bit , but it all was executed perfectly
ravor December 22, 2012, 7:39 AM EST.
why would you want people to skip to the chapter summary? they’re still missin out on a lot of the story even if they do read a summary.
Rachel Peculiar January 2, 2013, 3:14 AM EST.
I like it, can you realisticly say that them in junior high will be the same as in highschool? no, no you can’t
curtis July 6, 2013, 6:28 PM EST.
I’d Go into detail on my opinions on this ( all of which are good, by the way)
But… PARK BEARS O3O
That guy over there July 12, 2013, 11:26 AM EST.
12th panel makes it look like they’re on a date…if mike didn’t have the book, I mean
Vonith Sol July 21, 2013, 11:27 PM EST.
Aww, nostalgia bomb… from about three months ago.
This actually isn’t a bad chapter. Lucy says later that she was still getting over a crush on Paulo at this point, and that’s why she got on.
I may be one of the few people that really liked this Vol. 1 art style…
modulusshift June 24, 2014, 6:23 PM EST.
David you somtime’s make me wounder if your on drug’s or just that wierd
TemplarArchon_Azreal August 6, 2014, 12:28 AM EST.
Man it’s so weird coming back here after all these years I really loved the art style but seeing how the story and the comic has evolved is just amazing.
………… Too bad lucy is gone now
Ferking September 19, 2014, 2:31 AM EST.
