When I did this page, I had a brand new pen and even though it isn’t a brush pen, it kept making the most badass swooping lines ever. Because of that even though this page is really simplistic, it’s one of my faves. JUST THE HATCHING AND CROSS-HATCHING. I loved that pen, then it faltered and fizzled out about two pages later ;__; Woe is me.
New incentive as usual, April is almost over, guys! Let’s make April the catscatscats month ;D and by catscatscats month, I mean like top 20 in topwebcomics (I TRY TO AIM FOR SEMI-REALISTIC GOALS HERE)
oh man i have soulsilver and it’s really making me struggle to ink WHY WHY WHY.
In other news Souppy gave me the suggestion about showing panel previews of the next page as incentives, what do you think about that? Would you rather get a sneak peek at the next comic or do you want me to just draw random ********? THE CHOICE
i love you all.
OH AND THE FANART SECTION WILL SOON BE UPDATED BECAUSE MAN OH MAN I GOT A HELLUVA TON OF FANART THANKS BROS.
What the frig? David?
Reminds me of the time when a teacher made a girl stand up in class and she said that she couldn’t because she “had a *****”.
Gabriel Kaxbe April 19, 2010, 4:41 AM EST.
Oh dear lord, Daisy’s expressions are making me break out in laughter.
ToastyJester April 19, 2010, 4:44 AM EST.
yay update For The Freaking WIn !!!!!
Lucy’s happy…ARMAGEDDON IS COMING!!!!!!
( cute )
El Legendario April 19, 2010, 4:47 AM EST.
ok, can someone tell me what happen to lucy because i really don´t belive this is the hardcore lucy we all know and love.
but..still i do believe that she is only doing that because she dosen´t want to go through what she had with mike.
unknownfurry April 19, 2010, 4:51 AM EST.

Ahahahahahahahha, David is such a cutchi cutchi idiot =D
Huuuuuuuuuuum, alternative romance for Lucy?
Ana (aka Knux-the-Killer) April 19, 2010, 4:55 AM EST.
“Well this was not entirely unforeseen. Nevertheless…”
Y ou seem to have picked up a lot of fans recently Taeshi.
If you didn’t update so frequently already, and have some kind of wierd aversion to our offers of donations, you could run a donation drive for extra pages!
Anyway. Great Comic as always!
Disciple April 19, 2010, 5:07 AM EST.
someday I will post first…
And why, oh why must every page with a happy Lucy talking to Paulo spark a alk over if they will get together. We have a loooong topic about that relationship (or lack thereof) in the forum.
I loved the punch line, that mad me LoL so hard, especially with Daisy’s face the whole time
I am against sneak peak panels. They work well with some comics, but this comic a) updates frequently enough b) would be really annoying to have too big of spoilers b/c of the themes and c) little enough happens in the off panels. The comics I see with previews are like Goblins. Updates weekly, and all they need to show in the off panels is an action scene or a character pose.
Darkdrake April 19, 2010, 5:09 AM EST.
AWWWWWWWWW shes happy
Meg April 19, 2010, 5:19 AM EST.
I gotta admit, I much rather the random intensive approach to the preview one. I don’t need a preview, I’ll see it when it happens. Random stuff can only be seen when you vote. It also makes me think that it might deter potential voters who don’t want spoilers.
Honestly, this is the first time David has made me genuinely laugh out loud. It’s hilarious. Not that he’s not usually funny. He’s just not usually laugh out loud funny :p
Relationship or not, I’m just enjoying the rare site of Lucy’s smile
Maverik April 19, 2010, 5:32 AM EST.
Truly David has become a woman this day. XP
Jerk April 19, 2010, 5:36 AM EST.
Yep, it’s nice to see the characters grow and mature as the series goes. David here is a great example. As said before, Daisy’s expression in the 11th panel is the win.
Returning to David, he seems not happy at all with the LucyxPauloness, that’s… well: interesting. I wonder if he’s still shipping DaisyxPaulo or if he just finds wrong the situation.
And I kinda agree with still having a random/flopper incentive. I have never been to much of a fan of previews… it’s kinda like spoilers (and I’m very weak-willed). Besides, we just would have to wait for the next update to see what would be previewed, and thanks to the awesome update rate that you have us used to(thanks and thanks for that), it’s not that much of a wait.
x_uve April 19, 2010, 5:57 AM EST.
Great…not only we have to worry about teenage drama, now we have worry about bears…Thanks David D=<
… is it just me or David is doing a chameleon lazy eye stare at Daisy in the 2nd panel. You have just too much of his face showing to not have his other eye showing on the panel.
ps if no one gets my bear joke I’ll be sad =(
SWM the Dialogue Ninja April 19, 2010, 5:59 AM EST.
ha ha ha omg that “Alternative Lucy” pic is epic…and kinda how I imagined things would’ve turned between the two of them anyway.
I mean, Mike is kind of a jerk. And Paulo x Lucy? Interesting
Ragnir April 19, 2010, 6:07 AM EST.
Omg it does look like he is doing a stare at Daisy on panel 2 like a chameleon. xD
Anyway, back on track.
I think Daisy’s expression on panel 12 is just perfect.
Soul April 19, 2010, 6:27 AM EST.
Mike punched Lucy in the alternate confession comic!
Pwnzz April 19, 2010, 6:29 AM EST.
Wow,Lucy smiled,when was the last time i saw it?
And what the heck Dave?O.o
And the incentive,Mike,you`re a dumb T___T
Kou April 19, 2010, 6:34 AM EST.
Good ‘ol David.
Insentive Mike is a jerk.
I’d rather not recieve previews, this comic does well without it
Ved of Flames April 19, 2010, 6:35 AM EST.
Oh hey, I’m finally up to date. Just started reading the series and enjoying it immensely. Keep up the great work!
Only sad thing is now I have to wait for updates. The humanity!
Ciretho April 19, 2010, 7:17 AM EST.
i usually don’t comment on single pages,
(i shouldn’t be reading them either but i can’t help myself.)
this is actually not even about the page itself,
it’s about the the vote initiative idea…
honestly ? not a big fan… cuz,wall… it’s sorta pointless,isn’t it ?
i mean,you update every two day (also,kudos for keeping to a schedule,
your like the first webcomic artist in history to actually do that.)
so really,it’s like show giving a preview of whatll happen after the chimerical brake.
don’t get me wrong,back when you wouldn’t update for weeks,months at a time,
i would have done anything to get a preview of the next chapter.
but now that you update regularly,
i don’t have to sit around wandering:”whatll happen’ next?!”
(something that i honestly kindda miss doing.) adding a preview NOW will be the death of any suspense the comic might have left.
also,about you goal to reach the top 20… yeah,i suppose it’s pseudo realistic.
but,if it doesn’t work out,you should be proud of what you accomplished so far.
i mean,you’ve been on TWC for barley a month and already you’ve outdid some
of the sites veterans.
your one spot above “Ball2That”,and that’s dawn by Luke McKay who dose the comics for the “RedVSBlue” website. (sidenote-love that show.)
and you have,maybe not the most pretty,but the well designed website.
(really,your man’s doing a crazy awesome job with the site.)
oh ! also this page i made of win… metaphorically speaking.
(in reality it’s made of pixels… accuracy is important.)
oddguy April 19, 2010, 7:25 AM EST.
… f***ing typo.
oddguy April 19, 2010, 7:27 AM EST.
Oh, that incentive image was so funny, I actually forgot what I had read in the comic itself.
Moddy Auld April 19, 2010, 7:41 AM EST.
Woah! Weirdest reason to ask for a chat EVER!
Le Biologist April 19, 2010, 7:57 AM EST.
So, Lucy’s happy, Dave’s secretly a woman and that vote incentive was strangely funny. Haha. Certainly a good day to start my day off.
Atticus J. Chekhov April 19, 2010, 8:02 AM EST.
Hmm,maybe I should stop reading this for a few months.It was easier to read when I was like,a year or so behind,starting at the very beginning.Now it’s harder to follow and actually get into like before.Love it but,I;m picky for that sort of thing.That’s why I haven’t gone to Two Kinds in a while,eheh.Keep it up Taeshi,2 years time it’ll be a cartoon series!Laters.
Jay April 19, 2010, 8:08 AM EST.
Hey you took my user name
oddguy(the real one) April 19, 2010, 8:20 AM EST.
Where is the FREAKING VOTE BUTTON?!
Le Biologist April 19, 2010, 8:22 AM EST.
Looks like they are getting along. lUCY IS SO HAPPY!
pedro April 19, 2010, 8:23 AM EST.
taeshi help!!!, i just made a new account on twc so i could save all my favorite comics, and ofcourse i was gonna choose yours first… so when i was setting it up to be my favorite comic so i could just jump to it, it turned out i was making a comic and i didn’t even know it… i made it with ur comic name and everything because i thought it would become my favorite, but instead it made a whole new webcomic … i don’t even have one. now before i get arrested for plagerism! how do you delete a comic you made on twc?!
Ps: I love run-on sentances
Idiot :/ April 19, 2010, 8:40 AM EST.
I.. I don’t know how to delete comics ;__; I assumed if you go to “manage webcomic” there will be a choice to can it there? You just gotta poke around, sorry about the whole confusion!
Taeshi April 19, 2010, 9:06 AM EST.
well that’s sexy.
Wurst April 19, 2010, 9:13 AM EST.
you getting in the top 20 on TWC has roughly a 40% chance,give or take 10, need 300 extra people to vote to catch up with 21
Q April 19, 2010, 9:17 AM EST.
That bonus comic.
It’s like Mike and Lucy switched places. xD
Shade April 19, 2010, 9:20 AM EST.
What the? David is a guy… isn’t he…? O_O
FurryMaxime April 19, 2010, 9:23 AM EST.
Hey it’s really cool to see Lucy happy for once.
That confirms me in thinking that Paulo would be better for her ^^ He doesn’t do awkward after all!
shaman April 19, 2010, 9:25 AM EST.
I’m trying to think of what word David might have MEANT to say, but i can’t think of one.
DavCube April 19, 2010, 9:34 AM EST.
Hilarious, that punch line was great. Keep up the good work. Concerning the incentives, I think you should stick with random filler, as the past incentives that I’ve seen I’ve really liked. Today’s voting incentive is really good, and the pic last week of FF Cat and Lucy was funny. I’d wholeheartedly recommend sticking with what you got.
The Lost Carol April 19, 2010, 9:53 AM EST.
David, you bring such a beautiful balance to the rest of the group high intelligence and stuffiness.
John April 19, 2010, 9:57 AM EST.
I like the random ******** you do, it’s worth anticipating and I like a good mystery.
Jonathan April 19, 2010, 10:47 AM EST.
“I’m menstruating.”, “He totally bought it.”, Very funny. Epic story, drama and comedic mood-breakers. KEEP UPDATING! ^o^
Pwnzz April 19, 2010, 11:04 AM EST.
i was lied 2 this is a crap web comic
uranus.bitttttch April 19, 2010, 11:05 AM EST.
THEN WHY EVEN COMMENT ON THIS COMIC?!?!
Pwnzz April 19, 2010, 11:21 AM EST.
Random ******** is WAY better then previews that might even spoil something >>
Sind April 19, 2010, 11:21 AM EST.
Yes! The people demand more ********!
Megaket, Bullshitting. April 19, 2010, 11:43 AM EST.
I like random ********, I can wait for finished page.
Delios April 19, 2010, 1:06 PM EST.
This is my first comment on this comic, I found it about 3 days ago, and I love it, but I have one small problem… Lucy just left the Sandy-Mike-Luck love triangle for a Tess-Paelo-Lusy triangle… (I don’t have a problem with the whole MIKE and Kucy fighting thing, I kind of expected that, but come on, PAULO!?)
random fan April 19, 2010, 1:19 PM EST.
I know I’m double posting, but I just called Lucy Luck and Lusy by accident, so… ya, typo.
random fan April 19, 2010, 1:20 PM EST.
Aw… I like Paulo… but I cant see Lucy with him… I hope we all can get some closure soon
Van April 19, 2010, 1:26 PM EST.
Stick with the random ********! I love seeing the alternate endings and stuff that just wouldn’t happen in the actual comic.
Posting preview pics would just lessen the actual page when it comes out and it’d be less of an incentive as well.
Gescean April 19, 2010, 1:27 PM EST.
So….David’s black right? I always get this vibe that he’s a black character.
Paolo April 19, 2010, 1:28 PM EST.
I ****ing love that dog
Sebastian April 19, 2010, 1:49 PM EST.
oh David~ you make me chuckle all the time
but really- this might be the first time I saw Lucy happy like this on the schoolbreaketable…howev er you call it -
Lisa April 19, 2010, 2:04 PM EST.
Well, David’s a chocolate lab, so… take that how you will
Lariat April 19, 2010, 2:32 PM EST.
Don’t tell david that, he’d think he’s made of chocolate (and might actually try to eat himself to, lol)
random fan April 19, 2010, 2:46 PM EST.
An updated character description in the extras would be nice :3
Zoey April 19, 2010, 3:12 PM EST.
-.- nein nein PauloXLucy! It must not happen! intervene! intervene! oh and the alternate confession is really LOL too! =p keep up the good work
selvy April 19, 2010, 3:21 PM EST.
ooooookaaaaaaayy now davids just getting creepy >.> oh and for all you people wondering about Paulo and lucy, yea im actually confused too but i think shes replaced the “stick that she leans on” from mike to paulo, side note, mike actually warned against this in last big chapter.
Aeonera April 19, 2010, 3:27 PM EST.
WE NEED A NEW CHARACTER FOR LUCY’S LOVE INTEREST. NOT PAULO
TacoTownUSA April 19, 2010, 4:09 PM EST.
Kariz April 19, 2010, 4:09 PM EST.
just when I thought David was getting serious for once….
I hope he knocks some sense into Paulo, don’t you love tess?
ArceDeer April 19, 2010, 4:13 PM EST.
I hope the Vote Incentive is not real.. touching scene, but we all want to eventually see MikexLucy
Zaehlas April 19, 2010, 4:20 PM EST.
paulo is just trying to keep lucy happy, he hasn’t done anything else with her.
pedro April 19, 2010, 4:24 PM EST.
Zaehlas, speak for yourself, I don’t want ANY MikexLucy.
This is the first time I’ve liked David in quite a while. Something about boys and menstruation(haha wow). Paulo is fabulous as always, and Daisy’s expressions are hilarious! Though Lucy is not my favorite character, it’s nice to see her happy and conversing and such.
MM PURPLE. Reminds me of grape juice boxes?
Carma April 19, 2010, 4:45 PM EST.
Yeah. If he just wanted to do something with her, he passed up his only opportunity a couple comics back.
Erebus April 19, 2010, 4:50 PM EST.
Paulo should know only girls do that.
Cat April 19, 2010, 4:50 PM EST.
The incentive is totally out of Mike’s character, but Lucy’d totally deserve that.
Also Lucy… just enjoying the company of a different friend or are you latching onto someone else now? Hrm….
panthera.leo08 April 19, 2010, 5:05 PM EST.
Lucy needs someone else to support her besides Mike.
pedro April 19, 2010, 5:08 PM EST.
Ive done that before with my bros. Funny thing is the one i did it to really belived me. My friends are so stupid. Also I prefer the random ******** its ****ing hillarious
Andyfoxy April 19, 2010, 5:16 PM EST.
What the HEll!!! Lucy is actting wierdly lately but i can sse her with Paulo because he is the only person that i have seen that makes her luagh but where is Tes…….
Mezmo April 19, 2010, 5:26 PM EST.
It’s kinda strange seeing David act serious.
Love Daisy’s face in twelfth panel!
Solario the Visored April 19, 2010, 5:39 PM EST.
Dawwww, David’s becoming a blossoming young woman!!
Lindsay April 19, 2010, 6:10 PM EST.
Fff ahaha. Best excuse ever.
Amber April 19, 2010, 6:36 PM EST.
This comic makes me wonder… what the hell is logic smoking here?
Darogon April 19, 2010, 6:41 PM EST.
Hijack April 19, 2010, 6:43 PM EST.
1. And that is why David is my fave xD
2. @Daragon and Hijack: HAHAHA xD
Dudster April 19, 2010, 6:51 PM EST.
I just voted…
i was liking that alt-confession a bit… until Mike just kept saying no to Lucy and that even if he was single he wouldn’t still want to be with her…. and then theres the last panel O_O;
Dudster AGAIN WUT April 19, 2010, 6:55 PM EST.
Ok, I may not be the most colorful crayon in the box, But I know that was just messed up.
Riff2580 April 19, 2010, 7:06 PM EST.
The alt comic made me sad
Person April 19, 2010, 7:09 PM EST.
The alt comic made me think of Mike as bad ***. (loved it~)
The last panel made me chuckle though, even though I really disliked the idea of him punching her or whatever.
Milly April 19, 2010, 7:41 PM EST.
GO FOR #1 CANDYBOWL!!!!
UNIT2960 April 19, 2010, 7:57 PM EST.
I think it would be funny if there’s a version of the alt comic with lucy and Paulo! heh!
pedro April 19, 2010, 7:58 PM EST.
Random ******** is sooo much more amusing. Please keep drawing it!
Atty April 19, 2010, 8:14 PM EST.
Woah. David comes up with the weirdest excuses.
Le Biologist April 19, 2010, 8:30 PM EST.
Does that attract clicks, though? I was thinking that next month we could start a push for top ten on topwebcomics, and use next page previews as a means to get there.
What would get you all excited enough to click? A multi-page comic posted only as an incentive?
The whole voting game still upsets me a bit as I hate having to waste readers’ time, but topwebcomics sends pretty great visitors and I’d be very interested in seeing what having a banner visible on their home page would do for the site.
SuitCase April 19, 2010, 8:32 PM EST.
To be honest, I didn’t start reading this because of TWC. I saw two ads for this on two other webcomics I read and decided to give it a chance. I say keep up with your off-site ads to attract new readers. I’m glad I gave this comic a shot; it rocks! Had I just read the description on TWC, I probably would have passed over it.
Kaijy April 19, 2010, 8:42 PM EST.
LONG LIVE WEBCOMIC ADS!!!!
UNIT2960 April 19, 2010, 8:57 PM EST.
seriously, this comic is awesome!, umm i guess putting previews panels in the TWC could be awesome, it will attract more people to vote, and it will be like some kind of tv series, with the… “IN THE NEXT BCB” (and then just a panel to keep the people in suspense).
I found this comic looking for comics on google, i entered on a random comic, and i don’t like it, then i saw the BCB banner, it looked awesome, so i try it, and it wasn’t awesome, it was a freaking chuck norris mega awesome!
I HEART BCB
elosogamer April 19, 2010, 9:07 PM EST.
HORRAY FOR GOOGLE!!!!!
UNIT2960 April 19, 2010, 9:12 PM EST.

btw random ******** is much more amusing
Lolzman April 19, 2010, 9:16 PM EST.
You give me someting to read when I’m bored. Thank you.(Gamertag is UNIT2960
UNIT2960 April 19, 2010, 9:17 PM EST.
Yes, I like ads a lot better. I feel like getting you guys to vote on various things is passing the cost of advertising onto the readership, which is kind of lame.
TWC does generate better readers than most webcomics, though, as I suppose those reading the site are truly interested in finding something new to read. (By better, I mean visitors that read a lot and presumably stick around.) So that’s why I’m wondering how valuable they are. If we can get the same value out of a $20\mo investment in Project Wonderful, I’d rather do that, but if being in the top ten on TWC is worth $500 of Project Wonderful, then maybe that is worthwhile! So what I’m looking for is an experiment at most. To see just how valuable it would be to squeeze into that top segment.
SuitCase April 19, 2010, 9:18 PM EST.
I agree even though I don’t know what he’s talking about.
UNIT2960 April 19, 2010, 9:21 PM EST.
soooooo, lucy is getting closer to paulo, mike, dosn’t look quite happy near lucy, paulo said he like a lot tess, and loves daisy, daisy is happy with abbey, abbey, tess is about to finish college and move,sandy is far away, and loves maishul (mike)…
God i LOVE this comic =D
elosogamer April 19, 2010, 9:25 PM EST.
You just wait until Tess moves out near Sandy and has an affair.
Get back to Modern Warfare.

god!, seriously, that will be like a love pentagon, whats next?!
sandy fall in love with carter,mc cain or carson?!?!
does mike and lucy never talk again, making the comic to change it’s name?
does David is certanly a female?
will augustus kill abbey whith one of those little plastic things that comes rigth in the middle of a pizza?
elosogamer April 19, 2010, 9:51 PM EST.
gotta say people is rigth, making previews to vote, is’t a good idea
the random stuff, are awesome!
elosogamer April 19, 2010, 9:53 PM EST.
But will you vote more! It seems that we don’t get enough votes even with an incentive changing with every update. The thing is that I noticed the top ten comics often have previews of the next page as incentives, and it seems like an obvious thing to do to motivate people to vote.
SuitCase April 19, 2010, 10:24 PM EST.
i think we should all just go and go and ne
whf April 19, 2010, 10:28 PM EST.
I personally wouldn’t be as motivated to vote for something I would see in two days anyways. Especially with random stuff like the comic today, these incentives are almost like have that much extra comic to read.
Now if if were the ENTIRE next comic under the vote button, I’d vote every day. But just a little chunk to confuse me? No.
atty April 19, 2010, 10:29 PM EST.
I’m so sad…..I can’t believe I caught up from the beginning in two days T_T
Ear god update fast!!!
Wolfei April 19, 2010, 11:14 PM EST.
This is Suggestion Man,
First, the forms must be observed: nice comic.
Secondly, I suggest that you have a link to vote right around/on the comic page. For nearly every other comic, they have easily available vote links right on the page of their strip. I personally could not find yours through my incredibly thorough page-up page-down of the comic strip, and don’t feel like hunting for it.
It seems to grab the readers right after they read the strip, and so catch them at their most vulnerable moment…when they’re filled with joy (angst) at having just read the most recent update of BsCB! instead of having them travel insufferabely far to pick on some unknown concoction of links to find your TWC vote thingy.
Then again, I may just be really, really lazy…and a jerk.
Suggestion Man awwaaayyyyyy!!!
Suggestion Man April 19, 2010, 11:22 PM EST.
I hope Paulo caught that one and is just going with it. Ether way its funny as hell. Can’t wait for next comic.
Keep it up!!!!
snakes606 April 19, 2010, 11:23 PM EST.
Suggestion Man April 19, 2010, 11:29 PM EST.
Daisy’s face in panel 12 is pure win! xD
Glasses April 19, 2010, 11:37 PM EST.
OK, yes, I should only speak for myself. Agreed, if you don’t want MikexLucy, that’s perfectly ok, even if you suck!
heh, As far as the voting incentives, the funny thing is I use TWC to find webcomics I might like, and although I’m happier when incentives change, I vote on ones that I mark as my faves every day if I can. So once you are a “good webcomic” (BCB is an AWESOME one) you’re on my every day voting list already.
Get an account on TWC, fave the comics you like, hotkey your TWC fave page, and click away to vote. Easiest and least time consuming method in my case. Sorry all about the wall-0-text. I R drunk.
Zaehlas April 20, 2010, 12:29 AM EST.
lucy is laughing, this can’t end well it just can’t
(nameless) April 20, 2010, 12:35 AM EST.
Lol a guy menstrating… i think he needs to go to the hospital get things checked out or something
though it was a good way to catch his attention
Kariz April 20, 2010, 1:15 AM EST.
uranus.bitttttch: muahahaha, all your time… gone!!
Everyone else: i feel I’ll stick to the random incentives, I feel like a bit of a cheapscate if I just posted a panel, but I considered it since I do tend to get a lot of bitching for the next update. I thought a panel might tide the impatient ones out
which is fine I like drawing random comics and I do have the requestathon a well fff
Taeshi April 20, 2010, 1:42 AM EST.
You know Suitcase I think I might know the problem. I pretty sure just about everyone who reads the comic vote to see whatever the new incentive is. The thing is though the incentive only changes on mon-wen-fri. So everyone only really vote on though 3 days. In fact I have a feeling a lot of the readers only really check the site on the days it updates. Personally I’m not on the site every single day unless I want to check the forums. Now technically the best way to get more votes isn’t really the incentive itself but the update time. If say the comic updated everyday everyone would check the site everyday and probably remember to give a vote. Now I know a daily update, even though I know readers would love that, is not going to happen and I’m not asking for that but it’s something to think about.
Also an idea would be to move the vote reminder to say right under the comic itself so its more likely to be noticed to people who don’t say scroll down to read comments because I’m sure there are some reader who don’t bother/really want to read the comment so when they hit the bottom of the comic page they just go do something else.
I’m mostly thinking of my time when I had more time on my hands I used to read like tons of webcomics at the same time. I basically folder in firefox of all the bookmarks and click load all in tabs everyday. Then I closed the ones I knew didn’t update that day so save load time and just read the pages. But I do remember if I happened to notice vote link that day being nice I took the couple second to vote because it didn’t take long and I wanted to help the comics I liked reading.
Though now a days I don’t read nearly as many comics and I at least check the community sometimes. Though right now this comic is my little obsession so I sort of check it every day and I’m going to to try to remember to vote even on the non new incentive days. Though I have to admit I’m probably going to forget plenty.
One thing to think about isn’t the incentive itself but the fact lots of people probably only check the site 3 days a week and some might not even scroll down far enough to see the vote reminder. And people might only even think of voting on the days there is a new incentive.

~Longest comment ever!~ and for that you get a sparkler and a cookie.
oh and as an example Bearnuts does basicly the same thing and they do well.
Also ya random stuff shows that you give more effort than taking a small portion of the next comic. (it works for goblins cuz its kinda actiony and violent)
BSQ April 20, 2010, 7:46 AM EST.
I know! to get people to updadt more often, just update the incentive EVERY DAY!!
I mean, it would actualy probably work…(ignoring the trouble on your part
Darkdrake April 20, 2010, 9:03 AM EST.
What about doing a silly spin-off as the incentive? I mean, Precocious do it with Copper Road. It’s not great, but it does the trick to an extent. Some voters claim to vote form 3 different machines a day. It wouldn’t have to be anything serious, maybe the life of Sandy to go with Tayvin’s story…
Pronkat April 20, 2010, 1:34 PM EST.
Maybe you should also add a vote button on the actual comic pages as well, perhaps above the comic between the title and the page number.
I know your vote button is on the main page and I use that, but some readers might just be like “Meh don’t want to go look for it”.

oddguy(the real one):
i think this is how i comment on someone elses comment,i’m not sure…
if it doesn’t work i hope the other “oddguy” reads this…
sorry for using your username !
but iv been calling myself “oddguy” on deviantart for a long time now…
and the creator of this comics knows me by it… so…
kinda embarrassing that we be both thought of the same nickname…
i thoght i was really original,
but now i feel like a girl showing up at the prom
wearing the same dress as some one else… ):
anyway,i’m contempt with calling myself “oddguy#2” or something,if it’s alright with you…
i thing internet nicknames are a stupid thing to argue about !
i hope your o.k with this !
oddguy (the fake one ?) April 20, 2010, 3:53 PM EST.
My take on the bonus incentives: I’d rather have random additional content than previews because in the end we get more Bittersweet Candybowl out of you that way
TheTylor April 20, 2010, 4:10 PM EST.
Phew, and now I finnaly catch up.
Uhhhhh, yeah. Im a new reader and stuff, etc.. etc…

Hee, I just read Random Fan’s comment that telling David he’s a “chocolate lab” might lead him to trying to eat himself, and I suddenly found myself thinking, “If he were a ROBOT, he’d empty out his emergency rocket fuel to make room for the tuna!” Lolzimreference.
Solario the Visored April 20, 2010, 7:18 PM EST.
“Totally bought it.” Daisy’s faces are lulzy. And is Mike not present here? Is this not lunch?
Cedric Bale April 20, 2010, 7:54 PM EST.
Wow I give David a high five!
Because that’s the most genius reason to go talk to a bud I’ve ever heard…
I mean if one of my friends said that I’d probably go and talk with them, firstly to call them an idiot, then to ask what’s up, because no one would say that unless it was serious ><

I think you should keep on using Oddguy, Oddguy. I don’t know if this new Oddguy is going to post as often, plus your posts are fairly distinctive anyway!
As for incentives, I think we have an idea now. Thanks for all the feedback, it has been super useful!
SuitCase April 20, 2010, 9:31 PM EST.
“I suggest that you have a link to vote right around/on the comic page. For nearly every other comic, they have easily available vote links right on the page of their strip. I personally could not find yours through my incredibly thorough page-up page-down of the comic strip, and don’t feel like hunting for it.” — Suggestion Man
QFT. I hadn’t voted until recently largely because I couldn’t find the link. Especially considering the size of the comic image, the voting incentive image is tiny and surrounded by text. I noticed the format for this page includes rather large, blank margins. If possible, you may want to consider enlarging the Vote image, making it clickable as the link and keeping the text around it to a minimum. If you want people to click the vote link, make it nearly impossible for them not to =P
Oh, and I love the comic! I seriously read through the entire archive in about two days. Excellent story, thoroughly engaging characters, and the constant reader speculation suggests you’ve struck a chord with quite a few people around the interwebs.
Also, LucyXPaulo ftw! However, I am waiting for the other shoe to drop with Tessa. It seems things are going to get interesting in the next few arcs (if not sooner) ^^
Ziddy April 20, 2010, 9:52 PM EST.
Y’know, I just read this page again… and I just realized. Lucy is actually kind’a ******’ me off here. I had assumed that she had slingshotted from being attached to Mike to being attached to Paulo since Mike’s rejection and Paulo’s being there for her. But instead of being all aggressive and competative with Paulo like she was with Mike, she’s actually being NICE. If she’d acted like this towards Mike this whole time, even if she was still all anti-social and aggressive to everybody else, she’d have had him in the bag. Seriously, if I was Mike and I saw her acting like that to Paulo, openly and in public, I’d be kind’a angry that she never acted that way to me, on top of whatever other chips would be on my shoulder. Of course, if I was Mike, I’d have to punch myself in the face a few times. He’s not exactly being an awesome guy right now himself. Either way, Lucy has been frustrating me over the past few pages. Blaaaarghle-dargh finnicrackuh grockle florg.
I’m done now. Can’t wait for the next page. xP
Cedric Bale April 20, 2010, 10:13 PM EST.
sooo, you are angry because Lucy is maturing and developing and is learning from past mistakes about treating people better?
Darkdrake April 20, 2010, 10:23 PM EST.
Hijack April 20, 2010, 11:55 PM EST.
I think it’s easier for Lucy to be nice to somebody she never had so much emotional baggage to begin with, as opposed to Mike.
In the way of ‘maturing,’ I’d venture to say that none of these characters is truly maturing right now— imagine, trying to civilly settle disputes without romantic tensions and pre-conceived notions?
I’m sure they’re all developing. They just haven’t reached the point where they’re confident in their own self-image.
…ACTUALLY, in that respect, Mike is the MOST mature for having his stated his own personal philosophies, despite his knowing that presenting them would only arouse controversy.
He’s at least honest to himself, even if he has to be a killjoy to the rest of the group.
Knul April 21, 2010, 12:45 AM EST.
Not to say that you can’t be mature and have romantic tensions, but the idea of being mature sort of entails that you leave your own personal opinions at the door and approach any given problem with an objective eye.
Knul April 21, 2010, 12:47 AM EST.
/round about argument
I said maturING that implies that they are in the process of maturing, and Lucy most certainly is, especially given her recent problems.
Darkdrake April 21, 2010, 1:45 AM EST.
My friend who hasn’t even read the comic laughed at this one. God, thank you David.
