Veronica’s Commentary

One of my biggest regrets is that I never thought of the setting of Bittersweet.. I just always assumed they were kids in a quiet neighborhood, maybe middle-upper class.. big park in between many of them which is why they have so many escapades there. I never designed the park, nor the houses.. nor anything.. so now that I’m becoming more background-conscious, it’s biting me square in the ***.

Roseville’s also got far off mountains, hey.

Well, their mindset is off in the mountains, anyway, even if they’re not physically. That’s right, a background can work metaphorically, too!

I feel bad for Paulo… It seems like he’s getting the short end of the stick an awful lot lately.

Paulo is, underneath all his asshattery, a really good guy who gets shafted a retarded amount of the time. :( Poor thing.

From the shape of those speech bubbles I can only imagine how terrifying Lucy’s voice must have been xD Paulo has some guts.

I love the second-to-last panel where he silently makes up his mind to stay with her. “I MUST ACCEPT MY DESTINY.”

To be honest, from the backgrounds, it seems to me like they live just outside Denver, with Maraschino being Denver.

+1 to Paulo for knowing when to stick things out to get a straight answer out of a girl to help them!

I am really impressed with how Paulo has progressed as a character.

He is really learning to follow his better instincts, and if anyone is not going to be phased by Lucy’s attitude, it’s him.

He speaks her language, so to speak.
