Aaron’s a jerk even on bed LOL. What was Rachel doing when hugging Jessy?

Poor Rachel, poor Aaron, and poor Jess. I guess.

Jeez, breaking a 12 year old kid’s arm. That’s terrible. But especially if he’s so young he’ll be back on the soccer field soon enough, so good for him.

I commented when there were 3 comments. And I’m like 10th. You people are quick. Correction. 8th.

9th? Oh man! Come on I was only a couple of seconds late.
Poor Rachel… kinda short though.

its sooooooooooooo sad, thats how i think my family was when i had to go to the hospital to go into surgery cuz of a tumor i had. the doc said it was like under my brain, and if we dont get it out soon i wouldnt b here now. lol but hey it was a success. so wat im tryi9ng to say is that i know wat shes going through.

in everyone’s lives they will have a relative go to the hospital.
Sadly it’s an even worse feeling if they never checked out, and
believe me when you experience a loss its the worst feeling
you could have.

Wambyat February 23, 2011, 12:48 AM EST.
Side note: I especially like how well-dressed Rachel is. Also, as much as I hate to see her sad, I’ve never witnessed Rachel in a morose state of mind. Something about seeing an otherwise care-free, happy-go-lucky character bogged down by tragedy and somberness seems more touching imo.

Was Taeshi depressed when she made the incentives? because from what I’ve seen and heard this is morbidly sad lol..depressing since I just read the whole comic and the characters have so much personality I think of them as a realistic person anyway only 2 more to go, I’ll stick it out.

Iris February 23, 2011, 7:37 AM EST.
I think I’ve figured out Tess’ role in what happened to Aaron. Remeber the event awhile back when Tess described her HORRIBLE ex-boyfriend Roger and all the stuff he did to OTHER kids…;)

@DFA: I know. I keep wondering if they’re new readers, they were reading but missed pages, or they haven’t kept up and for some reason just randomly decided to start voting. (probably because of all the talk of ‘OMG what’s wrong with the incentive?!’)
Floweramon February 23, 2011, 10:27 AM EST.
Damn Taeshi, I think you might want to make it so people can’t post for the first 10-12 hours a comic is up. Maybe people’d sound less stupid if they had time to think before they spoke
Can’t wait to see how D.D. ends.
Man Rachel is short in this flashback, must have had quite a growth spurt down the road.

Unless Tess helped with that arm, prepare for a potentially-nasty Tess in the near future. Would justify how guilty Tess feels rather nicely, as well.
Hoheh February 23, 2011, 2:03 PM EST.
Well looks like some people don’t remember chapters from like four years ago.
They always said that was Tess’ ex the bully one. Chapter 34 - Page 03. You can even see Rachel brother over there. and in the panel 15, you can see she kinda didn’t agree with that. But for some reason she had to smile to her bf.
Lolllama February 23, 2011, 2:16 PM EST.
@Lolllama: Thank you, someone else who remembers!
Floweramon February 23, 2011, 2:35 PM EST.
Holy crap, I just noticed how TALL Jessica is compared to Rachel.
Blazenarm February 23, 2011, 2:41 PM EST.
Also, why are people so shocked to hear that Rachel’s smart? there’s a difference between booksmarts and ditziness…. and I think Rachel falls into the middle. I think she’s like Daisy, who’s a genius but also incredibly naive.
Floweramon February 23, 2011, 3:02 PM EST.
So I’m guessing ‘he’ is Roger. And Jess is ****** because Tess let him break the kid’s arm. So that means he either had an enormous amount of control over her, or she really was a total b*tch. And while I’m rambling on here, I can’t help but think FF Cat, in reference to his exchange with Lucy and his past treatment of Daisy resulting in a temporary transformation of her personality, is perhaps related to Roger. It sounds like they both like to push girls around and turn them into their wicked little sirens….Hate it when I try to start figuring out things before they’re shown.
Brain Worm February 23, 2011, 3:16 PM EST.
After reading this comic I feel kinda bad about thinking Rachel and Jess are total *****. They still are kinda but it’s just a little different seeing this side of them. Doing what they did out of spite is just never the way to get pay back.
Nonashu February 23, 2011, 3:28 PM EST.
Edit: I meant to say there was a difference between being blunt and being ditzy. Somewhere during writing my post that got messed up.
Floweramon February 23, 2011, 3:30 PM EST.
So we’re finally getting to see what tess was like before the BCB group showed up. But i still wonder what FF cat meant by tess wasn’t being true to herself chapters ago

Rika February 23, 2011, 4:37 PM EST.
Aaaaaw… Poor Rachel. And here I was thinking she was a huge jerk. Experiences like that can really mess people up. Anyway, why did Tess ever like Roger? He was a really bad person, and she made a horrible choice in ganging up with him
Moo February 23, 2011, 5:08 PM EST.

Me2 February 23, 2011, 8:19 PM EST.
Jess didn’t do anything, it was probably Tess’s boyfriend Roger or Tess. Cause in an old chapter Rachel yelled at Tess saying “Can you unbreak his arm?!” Or something like that.

My theory is that Roger hurt the kid, but then Tess actually broke his arm. It makes sense.

Elliot the n00b February 23, 2011, 11:19 PM EST.

Anyone else think the faces from the pencil pages are the best there is just something about the personality of those faces that can’t be created with color my proof up to bat page one panel 12 Lucy is just so cute (this really is the only reason I can’t give these pages a 10.0 I mean I like the faces but they were better to me in the begining) but these faces look more human so they get connection points uugh i’m so torn about which are better

@D in R
I know what you mean, but the colored pages are nicer looking overall.
Plus, when the colored pages started showing up I think it was about ch40, the summer comics, which is when a bunch of new drama started to develop.
It’s like the colors actually mean something other than looks.

I can totally see Sue holding the gun in the next page and saying “this is what happens when I don’t become secretary”
Also, just 25 hours and 12 minutes until the incentive is over! The end is near!
Anonymous2 February 24, 2011, 1:47 AM EST.
Just went back to double check, and you’re right, it had it’s own special personality.
And then I got sucked into the old archives, and laughed a lot.
“Why do you still wear that dinky bow anyway?”
“Because she needs reassurance that’s she has a ******!”
“SHUT UP!” *Yashy gets punted for the first time*
Ok, im done talking for now, I will be back in one hour to talk about the incentive~

Yes, I am a new reader. So please excuse me for not understanding how commenting works on this site…
I had just finished reading up to the latest chapter last week (awesome comic btw taeshi)
and the incentive just caught me off guard…
Won’t happen again, I swear.
Adam February 24, 2011, 2:15 AM EST.
For anyone who wants to know (sorry for the double comment)
Adam February 24, 2011, 2:17 AM EST.
D In R: The reason the old faces are considered “expressive” is because they’re generic animu expressions. Animay expressions can be done by anyone, and are very expressive. But it doesn’t really require too much skill to pull them off, and to me they’re a sign of a very amateur artist. I’ve been trying to ween myself off them and trying to make genuine expressions (Though I still do fall on generic expressions, old habits die hard). Hence why there’s no massive sweatdrops of bug eyed faces as much as older chapter.
No matter how much people want me to draw the “old faces”, I see a lot of flaws in them, and feel I would be regressing. So even though the newer expressions aren’t as “expressive” as the old ones, I’m still practicing to make them great without needing the crutch of anime emoticon-like expressions.
Bob and omnomasaur: Yes, I have a buffer. Do you want to see them all right now and wait weeks for an update? Or do you want to get a consistent amount of pages every few days without having to wait weeks just because you were too impatient to check every few days?
If I could update the comic daily, I would. But this isn’t my “primary” income. Nor does it take all my time, especially with university coming up. So be happy about the consistent updates right now because I can’t guarantee once Uni starts that it will be the same.
Taeshi February 24, 2011, 3:01 AM EST.
ROflmao @incentive, looks like someone was right!! it was Mccain taking over
Bob February 24, 2011, 3:01 AM EST.
@Taeshi, well don’t say you will quit doing the comic while in uni since it is still a form of income and if you stop updating the comic, I doubt people will get BCI.
Bob February 24, 2011, 3:03 AM EST.
Bob: I didn’t say I would quit, I meant I would not be updating daily/giving everyone the buffer just because I have a bunch of comics in advance.
The worst that could happen is hiatuses/dropping down to two days a week. Not outright quitting, I don’t know where on earth you got that.
Taeshi February 24, 2011, 3:06 AM EST.
Who said McCain? Whoever it was, you’re awesome!
twalker500 February 24, 2011, 3:07 AM EST.
wait, I see “end” but also only 32/33. Im extra excited to see Fridays incentive. The main comic too of course.
Scaught February 24, 2011, 3:09 AM EST.
@Taeshi Sorry, I misinterpretted it then, and yea I don’t think giving buffers (I think I know what that means) out to people in advance since it would mean, a longer wait period and people turning away, sort of like that twokinds comic, it updates like once every two weeks if your lucky, anyway stayed up for the incentive, good night everyone! =D
Bob February 24, 2011, 3:13 AM EST.
McCain made even more awesome with a gun
Rawr February 24, 2011, 3:32 AM EST.
@Incentive: HOLY CRAP I DID NOT EXPECT THAT AT ALL.
Satire55 February 24, 2011, 3:42 AM EST.
gunslinger McCain = awesome.
that other guy February 24, 2011, 3:43 AM EST.
well if it were me my final words would be “shut it… McCain.”
sen February 24, 2011, 3:45 AM EST.
Im very confused as to why i started reading this when im depressed and finally when i get to the latest update… Wow nothing is better. Main characters are mad and sad.
WHY DID I READ THIS NOW HURRY UP AND FIX THIS AUGH
MaJaWe February 24, 2011, 3:48 AM EST.

I wasn’t expecting that.

Adawg February 24, 2011, 4:43 AM EST.
McCain! Best incentive ending ever!
Sandz890 February 24, 2011, 4:49 AM EST.
HAHA!! YES!! I am so happy right now!! Go McCain!! Taeshi if I could hug you in person right now I would!!
FireFang1331 February 24, 2011, 4:56 AM EST.
@ incentive: McCain + gun + an actual appearance = Epic win
though seriously, I did not see that coming, McCain’s the most sane character in the entirety of BCB!
Bit-small February 24, 2011, 5:00 AM EST.
Incentive comic: WHAT A TWEEST! Taeshi, you just made me a McCain fan!
But wait, if that’s the end, why is there still one more page?
N8 February 24, 2011, 5:25 AM EST.
The Incentive Comic is so epic! Everybody is dead and now McCain is just WOW! AWESOME!
Master_Lux February 24, 2011, 5:53 AM EST.
Jess in the last page looks like she’s gonna kill whoever did this
TessaFan February 24, 2011, 5:55 AM EST.
Shock! It was Mcain
awesomesauce February 24, 2011, 6:09 AM EST.

alexB February 24, 2011, 6:25 AM EST.

hmmm… drama within drama, coments are for fun, not predicting the end of this comic world as we know it…
Adario-Mendcaz February 24, 2011, 7:18 AM EST.

nobody42 February 24, 2011, 7:22 AM EST.
Hmm, more consequence-less assault, eh?
Fortuna Veritas February 24, 2011, 7:35 AM EST.
SHUT IT, MCCAIN

Best. Incentive. Comic. Ending. EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mr. F. Ail February 24, 2011, 8:20 AM EST.
Incentive: But…It says this is page 32 out of 33 at the top of the page so how is that the ending?
Kikren February 24, 2011, 8:30 AM EST.
cry yourself to sleep
Tell people to stop being little bitches
Kikren February 24, 2011, 8:34 AM EST.
Incentive: Ahahahahahahaha, Taeshi just completed lots of people’s lives with that final panel.
Crabmaster February 24, 2011, 8:50 AM EST.

incentive: page 32 of 33… another epilouge page? McCain, youse crazy.
asimplefangirl February 24, 2011, 9:00 AM EST.
Somehow McCain managed to become even MORE awesome.
Down February 24, 2011, 9:16 AM EST.
I’n not surprised about McCain being the lone, no-longer-sane voice here, lol.
Though, if I had to guess, that last incentive…will be far more awesome than just this, I feel it.
Welgaian February 24, 2011, 9:21 AM EST.
Tae I guess what I was trying to find out is if you are trying to make the faces more full of emotion
Anonymous2 yeah I know how you feel
and yes I called it first (I think) it was McCain
D. In R. February 24, 2011, 9:40 AM EST.
McCain with a gun going on a homicidal killing spree? Awesome.
Ominous February 24, 2011, 10:03 AM EST.
I think I love McCain more than I did before!
Awesome incentive comic, Tae! Can’t wait to see what’s on page 33!
Asche February 24, 2011, 10:09 AM EST.
@incentive Shut it, Mccain.
Jumpitydude February 24, 2011, 10:17 AM EST.
The best part about the incentive is that all that crazy, random death that hit the main characters happened without any help from McCain. Unless he sent those assassins at ****** in which case it’s kinda his fault
Masque DeMask February 24, 2011, 10:23 AM EST.
so the boyfriend hurt the brother?!
i dont get it…
no, seriously, i have no idea whats going on! (besides this is a memory in Lucys party…)
JMOR February 24, 2011, 10:29 AM EST.
OMG, I was NOT expecting McCain to be holding the gun lol
JustAFurry February 24, 2011, 11:19 AM EST.
I like Bacon
omnomasaur February 24, 2011, 11:25 AM EST.
I kind of did expect Alec to be there in the incentive. All that “Shut it,” business is not good for you. Take it as a lesson of what could be, if Alec fought back and stopped bothering to try and help. If someone canonically punched someone telling him to shut it in the face, we’d have an excellent reason not to expect that incentive equivalent to occur. If it does happen, I hope it’s Alejandro, done by Abbey.
Hoheh February 24, 2011, 11:34 AM EST.
@ incentive, McCain’s got an M1911, that’s a good pistol
Sarge February 24, 2011, 11:46 AM EST.
I know its not canon, and I feel kind of a jerk for finding school shooting funny, but that was the best ending to an incentive arc yet!!!
Doctor_What February 24, 2011, 11:52 AM EST.
Wow, so it WAS McCain. Strangely enough, the only thing I can think of is whether or not Sue will be spared or if she’s doomed like all the others. Probably a stupid question, but still….
Floweramon February 24, 2011, 11:58 AM EST.
Sort of wish the Incentive had some sort of silver lining… Oh well…
SmashFiles February 24, 2011, 12:01 PM EST.
*cheesy line commencing*
“There’s always a silver lining….you just got to believe….believe….”
Anon February 24, 2011, 1:36 PM EST.
I have a weird feeling this is Augustus’s fault. But I might be wrong. It could be anybody.
Michelle February 24, 2011, 1:55 PM EST.
And we once again continue our studies of how Tess became the school’s biotch. -3-
KimmyKirby February 24, 2011, 2:14 PM EST.
twc down again…
I just realised that I have no idea at all at what will happen next.
DFA February 24, 2011, 2:16 PM EST.
I’m pretty sure what happened to Aaron was Roger’s fault. Though Tess might have had a hand in it as well.
Left February 24, 2011, 2:34 PM EST.
It was Rogers fault and Tess was there. Look back at Chapter 34 “Bonding” for reference.
Nonashu February 24, 2011, 2:47 PM EST.
Freakin top web comics!!! they (twc) needs to do something!!
HB February 24, 2011, 3:25 PM EST.
god damn…i never expected Alec to pull a gun up to him
besides that, he looks so boss
Sandvich February 24, 2011, 3:30 PM EST.
Actually..I think someone said the principals a girl.
Bob February 24, 2011, 4:11 PM EST.
McCain just won the entire frickin’ incentive.
entertained February 24, 2011, 4:40 PM EST.
Does anyone else notice the kind of gun McCain is using?
wait… he’s obviously untrained in how to handle guns, cuz he’s holding it wrong… unless he isn’t planning on pulling the trigger?
Sarge February 24, 2011, 4:49 PM EST.
LOL frickin McCain.
Cosmic February 24, 2011, 5:06 PM EST.
Vote Incentive: McCain. .? Wow Lol. .
Page: Wow Rachel Is Short. . o.o
But Awesome Job Tae
NightFaller February 24, 2011, 5:20 PM EST.
McCain? it all makes sense
shock and awe February 24, 2011, 5:37 PM EST.
rachel looks better the way she is on this page, without the styled “hair”.
DFA February 24, 2011, 6:37 PM EST.
incentive made me LOL
Subject-Delta February 24, 2011, 6:55 PM EST.
the incentive is about where everything goes horribly wrong, and as horrid as it could be. thus, everyone awesome dies, and everyone stupid goes ****-crazy, and then Mc.Cain becomes president… what do you know… then everyone gets turned into zombies, and some other stuff
Adario-Mendcaz February 24, 2011, 6:58 PM EST.
I really hope talking about how the incentive pages make us ROFL LOL doesn’t get us banned.
Nonashu February 24, 2011, 7:04 PM EST.
Where the hell did McCain get a gun from anyway?
Peturd February 24, 2011, 7:06 PM EST.
The last page of the incentive had me dieing. Hahahaha.
Nigh_Towl February 24, 2011, 7:23 PM EST.
McCain dresses the part and was always quiet, this is hardly surprising but it is well executed.
Curious that it says the end but there’s one more page… hmm.
KZero February 24, 2011, 7:34 PM EST.
McCain for the win! Lol
HB February 24, 2011, 8:13 PM EST.
Drama queen Aaron!
Lunar February 24, 2011, 8:14 PM EST.
McCain was the silent one. you always look out for the silent ones.
also, i wonder what the apparent epilouge page will be… i actually half expected the gun weilder to be Sue. i mean, she did just suffer from six if ger friends’ deaths (several of which were caused by ******), and saw Lucy comit suicide! It shocked me to see McCain, but i also kinda expected it after i saw.
asimplefangirl February 24, 2011, 8:40 PM EST.
Mc Cain has always been badass to me.
Now he’s even more Badass
El Legendario February 24, 2011, 8:57 PM EST.
@Nigh_Towl, What makes you think it’s the last page?
Ahroo February 24, 2011, 9:20 PM EST.
McCain has always been my favorite character next to Carter. He has just gotten more awesome!
Rob64 February 24, 2011, 9:31 PM EST.
@Ahroo he means the last page posted not the very last page of it all
shynaruto93 February 24, 2011, 9:53 PM EST.
The sheer, unabashed awesomeness of the climactic incentive page is so great that I must register my favorable opinion thereof with my very first comment.
Or, to put it another way: DUDE, SWEET.
R.J. Rouge February 24, 2011, 10:30 PM EST.
Well dang it McCain…:/
pengawill February 24, 2011, 10:39 PM EST.
Mind = Blown.
I did not even begin to contemplate of thinking of ruminating that the mysterious guy would be McCain.
GoodBurger February 24, 2011, 11:30 PM EST.
Aww emotional moment for the girls:(
ShadowAce February 24, 2011, 11:53 PM EST.
I bet the last page of the incentive will be sandy dying in a horrible, horrible way.
Mattx2 February 24, 2011, 11:58 PM EST.
Sooo tired..cannot stay up for the incentive >.< gonna have to get up bright and early in the morning then!
Bob February 25, 2011, 12:27 AM EST.
Gawd is today sobby weepy day or what,also someone said something about McCain and mysterious guy wtf is that now i wish i knew this incentive
Vera (Claythorne) March 1, 2011, 1:10 PM EST.
I understand where Rach is comin from, if ANY1 even OBAMA hurt my lil bro i’d kill em with my bare hand’s, or get some HARDCORE REVENG! i aint jokin.
Lucy May 23, 2011, 4:29 PM EST.
If anyone laid a hand on my little brother, I’d ****ing kill him/her. That goes for any of my siblings, even the ones far older than me.
NintendoSegaSonyGuy May 24, 2011, 4:37 PM EST.
Taeshi’s comment for the page is PERFECT!
Hoheh June 11, 2011, 10:05 AM EST.
Zekeon June 24, 2011, 8:18 PM EST.
I can understand having a hate on for someone because they hurt someone you care about. Especially a bully.
But even that would fade over time if the person showed change.
What can I say, I have a need to be fair to people.
Fruvous September 11, 2011, 12:41 AM EST.
Rachel comes out of the door.She saws Jessica.She told her that to her brother thinks that to his life is over.She will chear him up when their mom comes to pick them up.But then she starts crying.She things shes wrong.There is no help.She asks Jessica for help.
ema March 10, 2012, 9:56 AM EST.
