Veronica’s Commentary

Maybe playing a game will distract Michael from HIS AND SANDY’S IMMINENT BREAKUP.

(What is funny is that Souppy actually wrote this commentary in my place, I really gotta never make him do that. He always pretends to give out spoilers that is more annoying to clean up than to make! Arghhhh)

Do I hear something about a breakup? Is that a HINT!?
Nah, Taeshi would never give such obvious hints :) It’s good to see Lucy being the ironic, witty one again. I’ve seen enough of the sad kitty by now :P

Hehe, lucy nevertheless tries to soften the situation.
Also, couldn’t believe there were no comments yet. How the comic updates exactly when my game crashes and I randomly happen to go on the web :D

I love this page! Nothing like old habits to break ice. I hope this works out and there is not too much rage. It will be interesting if they vent steam more than by playing a game. It would be nice if some much needed conversations occurred. Now, to Monday!

Or maybe people speculate on their breakup because that’s really what they want, and for these two to get over their differences. No need to be snippy, Suitcase.

Comment ID #188424

But… but… this is WAY too early in the comic for the resolution to pop up… we still have another twenty-five pages to go… so if it’s going to go on, there has to be some kind of conflict or suspense or SOMETHING that goes amiss…

My “tragic author” senses are tingling! Beware, Lucy! Beware!

Squeex: Says the one quitting in rage and self-entitlement for words on the internet. Hope you’re able to lighten up in future.

What’s funny is that I used the same remark you shot at Souppy to show how rude you were actually sounding and you’re the one lashing out? Double-standards much?

Taeshi November 4, 2011, 12:06 PM EST.

Comment ID #188432

Nah, see, here’s the deal. I was being 100% serious that maybe readers would seriously appreciate those two being over their differences. Honestly, if they’re willing to pull anything out of the littlest detail even with you pointing it our in the commentary below the page, then one would assume that in actual hindsight that’s what others want.

No need to be a sarcastic twit and fly onto the page just because one comment ruffled your feathers. Sorry I got “snippy” with Suitcase, but in all seriousness, it just goes to show me how negative you guys can be when people take your comic out of context.

Taeshi: Says the one who throws a hissy when others take her E-comic not the way she originally planned.

Welcome to the internet. People rage, people leave, and honestly, if you can’t come to terms with the fact that sometimes people are going to be oblivious to things, even obvious things, then maybe YOU shouldn’t have come onto the internet at all.

Squeex November 4, 2011, 12:10 PM EST.

Comment ID #188433

What you’re saying is irrelevant. The point that Souppy was making was that people were already thinking Mike and Sandy were going to break up. This has nothing to do with Mike and Lucy reconciling their differences, this has to do with the assumption “Mike and Sandy are breaking up???”, please actually know what the subject is about before getting angry at Souppy, because the confusion had nothing to do with Mike and Lucy.

There can be a link to Mike and Lucy as in the break-up might bring them closer together, but that is another subject entirely. The point he was making was taking commentary literally.

I didn’t get ruffled feathers, I was making it clear you were getting easily offended at what Souppy said when his joke was mainly about how commentary tends to have sarcastic remarks that are taken literally. You’re turning it into something else.

I don’t really know what you’re talking about with the third paragraph, you’re clearly mad and ad homineming about. That’s okay, the thing I don’t mind if you rage and leave, which means what you’re saying in this third paragraph is complete nonsense. As I said before, lighten up. Thing is, people can misinterpret, and I can explain. It happens.

Oh no. A creator poking fun at the fans for thinking they’d really reveal their ingenious plots before the actual, dramatic reveal. This has NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE! RAGNERÖK IS UPON US! SHARPEN AXES, READY CATAPULTS, POLISH RUBBER CHICKENS! THE FROST GIANTS ARE COMING!

EVERYTHING IS A LIE! THE EXISTANCE OF SANDY IS A LIE! THE PISSINESS OF MIKE IS A LIE! EVERYTHING! LIES!

Amazing Lagann: Oh definitely! Admittedly Souppy was the one that wrote the commentary in my place, and it’s when I came in to check if the comic uploaded that I noticed he made yet another joke like that, he was also the one that wrote about the supposed Daisy pregnancy arc >8U

I think he really should realise that things might get taken literally, and it’s more of a burden to have to clear things up than make the joke in the first place. It was my bad, and I should really just hit him to not do that when he’s writing commentary in my place!!!

I gotta remember that the community is not just limited to the IRC, who are used to me and Souppy making jokes like that all the time, I just gotta be really partial with commentary, unless I do something truly confusing like last page’s dialogue!!

Besides that, how long has it been since they played any games? Even before Acapulco, right? It would be nice if he accepts!! I wouldn’t count on it, though. I can see it going two ways: him accepting or him snapping at Lucy.

I love the way you’re drawing faces recently! So expressive and cute~

I think it’s a novel way to do this kind of story, usually such a story will often be about a long distance relationship or about a girl in love with a guy with the long distance relationship ending and the girl and guy getting together, but this seems to be about a successful long distance relationship but from the “other girl“‘s point of view. Interesting how people are very keen on her and mike being together, but were it told from mike or sandy’s point of view, she’d be viewed as an antagonist.

I really enjoy this! I look forward to future updates.

Taeshi: “Bittersweet Candy Bowl: Love and Drama, even in the comments!”
That’s what I was going to say, except I would’ve left out the love… not that you’re hating on anyone, I just would’ve put drama for the comments section.
I interpreted from the last page’s dialogue that there might be some trouble with the relationship, a bump in the road; I didn’t go as far as to say they were breaking up. I didn’t believe Soupy about Daisy being pregnant either, so you’ve got at least one person who doesn’t know you or Soupy IRL who doesn’t take his messing with the comments too seriously. Basically I’m just commenting that I try and guess where it’s going, but I don’t know and I try to make more generalized hypotheses.
Now onto this page. Oh Lucy, stealing peaks at your beloved. Don’t know why, but Lucy doesn’t seem… quite right in panel 8, the posing or the angle of her head maybe….

Comment ID #188477

@X-strike-fire-dragon I think her head is right, I think the reason she looks a little off is because of her bow. It is off to the back which can make the illusion her head isn’t quite where it should be. She may be push her head forward a bit so that the bow doesn’t ge all up in her grillz you know. Her head does look a bit off, but I think that has to do with her bow more than anything. (as I had said.)

Krys the Wytch November 4, 2011, 1:42 PM EST.

Comment ID #188479

AHAHA FINALLY someone says to heck with it all. Now this is where Lucy’s bossy side actually comes in handy. She’s been holding it in so long and trying to give Mike what he wants only to be left with an increasingly cold shoulder. So its rather nice to see her throw his attitude in his face and try to get him to relax.
In other news, I interpret that “stick” line in the previous page to hint that actually Mike knows something is wrong on some level, but is either too stubborn to realize it or just can’t put his finger on it. This is irritating, so he ends up grumpy. Said problem doesn’t have to do with his relationship with Sandy, but with his relationship with anything NOT Sandy. I dunno, you get hints from expressions of his that he might be cluing in that he’s been acting over the top jerkish, but he feels that if he starts to admit it that might set things back on the old path and he doesn’t want that either. Maybe the poor guy just feels stuck and is lashing out.
….I still don’t like him, but looking at it from that way at least makes his attitude more believable to me.

i’m kinda confused, the previous page in the comments one of the green people said that there was a misconception with Mike’s sisters comment, where i’m assuming it meant “maybe you can help him with the stick up his @ss that appears whenever he’s not talking to sandy”, which would mean the commentary was in fact a joke stemming from the readers misconception (which btw you can say thats not influenced by the comments but i think that’s a load of bullsh*t), so can anyone actually clarify that? i’m getting a lot of mixed messages here and it confuzzles me ^.^;;;

and everyone should just take the flamers with a grain of salt, adding fuel to the fire, though fun to watch, doesn’t really do much and just leaves a bitter taste in the mouth

love the page though, definatly worth the wait, Lucy is obviously too distracted to work. Mike should’ve known this might happen when he took her to his house ; P

Sorry, I’m with Squeex on this. SORT of. I think he was trying to point out that he wasn’t raging in that first comment of his, but you got on his case like he was and that is what ticked him off. I know its hard to do a popular comic like this without offending someone, and that its impossible to please everyone, but do you have to be so backlashy? You didn’t even try to reason with him. I do think he could have worded his first comment a lot better but I don’t think he meant it to be a slap on the comic creators. I think he was just pointing out that people see what they want to see in the comments. The snippy part was him getting defensive over what he saw as a barb from suitcase and probably could have been worded a lot better but didn’t deserve the kind of backlash you gave him.
The problem with reading text is that you don’t get voice intonation. Intonation goes a long way to showing whether one is joking, sarcastic, or serious. I doubt Suitcase meant any harm in his comment and Squeex might not have meant as much insult as was read into his comment either. But no one tries to clarify or give benefit of the doubt on the internet anymore.
In short, life is full of enough drama as it is without people reading more into it. I just found this comic, and I don’t think I’ll read any more, sorry to say, if this is the automatic response people get. I don’t mean any offence in what I say but because you can’t hear me say it I wonder if some will read offence anyways. But thats the nature of the internet. Good luck to you.

EVERYONE COMMENT ON WHAT YOU THINK WILL HAPPEN NEXT!!! jk Taeshi already wrights an awesome story without us putting in our two cents, GO TAESHI!!! (yes i know, extreme butt kissing is what i’ve done but oh well, it encourages the writer to keep up the great work so i’ll just keep on doin’ all the but kissin’ i want :P ) (also: to the other writers of the comic, i know you diserve credit like Taeshi as well, so you guys keep up the great work as well :D )

C’mon Mike, you know you want to los- I mean play against Lucy! And I find it unlikely Mike would break up with Sandy or vice versa right now in the plot; I have no idea where that idea comes from, Sandy seems to rely on Mike for happiness right now, and Mike really seems to want her.

I hoped they would end up doing this. It may be just a video game, but nostalgia is a powerful thing. I sure hope Mike feels the same way; I’m tired of him being angry all the time.

you know, oliver has a serious problem with compulsive lying… it’s not even funny. :/

first the daisy pregnancy thing, now crap about mike and sandy breaking up.

…and it all leads to veronica having to clean up a mess.

that doesn’t sound like a good relationship to me, i wonder if lucy and mike are based off of them.

whatever, bad relationships aside, i guess i’ll comment on the bad relationships in this comic… i’m assuming mike will shoot the gaming invitation down, and maybe even kick lucy out of his house.

then she’ll leave and run into augustus again, probably try to rape him out of loneliness, get beaten, then jumped by his older gang friends and raped… it’s probably a good thing i’m not writing this comic. :smirk:

Mike already knows what she is doing. She is only in his house so that they can quickly finish the project. When she offered him a distraction, he immediatly started trying to get her to work. When he argued, she hit him in the face with a controller. Those things hurt. In the past, he would have given her whatever she wanted at this point. So, she feels like she won, but now, he will just get angry.

Comment ID #188534

Goodbye: I did reason with him, I explained what Souppy really meant and he immediately responded with “You lost a reader!!!!!” because I so happened to have the gall to defend him, I think that’s a pretty dumb and over the top reaction, and I continued to respond until he backed out, I don’t understand what was so backlashy, I gave him the ability to respond. I don’t think I was telling him to shut up or discouraging him, you’d think I’d just plain ignore someone who claims zero interest on the comic due to an offhand remark. But I continued to respond.

I can’t comprehend the idea of “not giving him time to reason” when I wrote like paragraphs and paragraphs..? Or is “reasoning” to back down..? Still feels very double-standards, especially when met with a snarky ultimatum.

As I said before, people who make quick assumptions without truly getting to know me/the comic aren’t worth keeping as readers anyway, if you’re quick to judge who knows what other future instance you’d get offended at? I don’t think it’s worth it, though good luck to you anyway!

I like: Lucy trying to have fun, putting herself out there, trying to bring back a little of the old friendship they had.

I dislike: That this kind of behavior led to mike’s rage and discontinuing of their friendship in the first place, and she hasn’t found a different way to show all dem emotions by now D:

My prediction: Mike will rage and/or kick her out. That, or he’ll stonily refuse and do work angrily.

Because, you know, nothing can go right with all this.

It’s kind of sad that Lucy chucking a controller at Mike’s face is a good thing. Not many comics can achieve that level of angst! :D

Also, is that an SNES I see? If that’s the case, then Super Boxer Champions is likely a parody of Super Punch-Out.

There’s too many DAMN comments!! It hard to swipe down the iPhone bitches!! It mad me damn sick…whew..BTW..It’s really obvious that there’s a 50:50 chance that sandy and mikE will breakup ‘cuz look at it Taeshi is giving a hint (maybe the hint is
Not real) and I see that the poster Thingy (the link tab Thingy which will direct you to BCB) that mike and Lucy is staring at each other (woLOLo) and in the extras saying that: Will Lucy and Mike be together? It will say yes..and after a while it will say No….. Well that’s mah ideas
P.S. I only knew BCB when I went to e621.net (eh…you wouldnt bother that site .cus it’s the thing that’s starts will the letter H and P (Lol) and I see The banner that says “ANGST” where Lucy is pouting at Mike and she slapped the bitch in the face (tha bitch is mike) leaving a red mark

@toffee: sarcasm is REALLY hard to depict on the internet, and even if your interpretation leads you to that conclusion, its not the same for everyone else. I personally refuse to believe anything until one of the green people say straight out that one thing is true (because all their commetns so far have been really vague ;.;).

Also i give the advice again to take the flamers with a grain of salt and be as objective as possible when writing back to them, putting too much emotion into your writing makes the writer out as a snarky a*shole. Also assuming things about people is also not a good idea… But hey, what the hell do i know |3

Comment ID #188573

Okay, here is where I see the imminent fight between them happening that is gonna put things in perspective for Mike. He will probably get angry and yell at her, where she will finally vent all her pent up emotions. Now, I see two things happening here-

1) Mike realizes how much of a d*** he’s being to her and attempt to reconcile their friendship, but make it clear that it will only be a friendship, or

2) Mike will do something irredeemable, and will receive a negative backlash from all his friends. That way, he will only have Sandy left.

P.S. Also, as much as I would like the books to sell, Mike must never reach Sandy. So the obvious solution- I can has more books?

Hey look Lucy’s not acting like a nervous insecure psycho anymore.

Mike does look a bit peeved in the last panel, but that may be because he got a controller thrown in his face. Also because earlier he said (twice) that he wanted to have the weekend to himself and now Lucy is like “LOL WHY FINISH IT TODAY WE HAVE THE WEEKEND :DD”, so one of two things are going to happen: Mike is either going to explode or he’s going to admit that he would actually like to spend the weekend with Lucy. Hopefully the latter.

I decided recently to go back and read some of the older comics, specifically between 33 and 41, and some of the stuff, particularly Augustus’ lines, has been changed around and simplified.

This makes me sad. The original text was better.

New comics are still good and everything, but I find going over old stuff with tiny edits, unless you plan on a complete remake (chapter one for example), just messes it up.

Not sure how long ago it changed, but it did. x.x

Huh. If Mike does agree to play with her, Lucy’s just got much more than just a chance to have fun with Mike. She gets to spend more time with him, because they will have to do the project “on Friday or the weekend”, like she says. I don’t know if she planned it, but if she did, she was pretty cunning.

@Rockenos: Teashi & Soupy don’t get offended when ppl clarify if they are joking. (wait I just reread your comment. disregard this one love.)

N-E-Ways, as for everyone else: I think that it’s just common sense that the creators will not be giving “spoilers” everything we see is on a page by page basis. heaven forbid the creators/moderators poke a little fun at their own work.

& to my fellow artist Teashi: OMG girl!!! I really wanna give you a big hug right now. but seeing as I can’t Soupy needs to do it for me. XD

P.S. i don’t believe for a second that the ppl that said “you’ve gust lost a reader have stopped looking at this comic. they just want to say something hurtful & nasty, they probably wont post for a while/they’ll change their screen name because they are cowards. I mean seriously, I like reading & seeing other ppls opinions, but who stops reading something because of what someone else says?

@Goodbye: Voice only takes careful writing and careful reading. It’s there. Just saying. I’m a budding writer, there’s PLENTY of ways to indicate voice intonation.

Examples (they don’t fit together):
*Sally thew up her hands. “Oh, of COURSE you’re still here!”
*James looked at her incredulously. “Seriously? We’ll all just messing around. Chill, man.”
*Samantha looked at him with a deathly serious face. “… Are you making fun of me?”

It’s not just dialogue either. If I tell you that **of course he was way out of line but perhaps you were being just a little confrontational** or say that **he was being totally illogical and was clearly half literate at best** or perhaps **Wooooow… shut up lady you’re full of yourself I’m never gonna read this again just deal with the fact that people on the Internet are stupid**… well, these phrases have an inherent tone of voice in them. It has everything to do with word choice. One who has no time to think about it can just type what they would say, yeah, but that leaves it open to interperet, like if you were to say something in a neutral tone of voice that might be highly offensive it could be taken as spoken crisply or coolly. So the fault CAN be with the speaker.

However… some people just read and think “Dur, this word means this so that’s exactly what you’re saying there’s no more meaning to it.” There’s always people who take things too literally.



Realize, by the way, that this isn’t actually for any reason or directed at anyone. I’m just bored out of my mind and I don’t know where to take my story.

Inspiration: like catching a leaf in a hurricane or like a leaf hitting you in the face with a hurricane.

‘We still have-’ ‘We still have Friday and the weekend!’

@Squeex: “Or maybe people speculate on their breakup because that’s really what they want, and for these two to get over their differences. No need to be snippy, Suitcase.”

I’m sorry to be a nacho but I didn’t read on anyone saying they wanted Mike and Sandy to break up. Unless there was someone else who commented and I didn’t get to see it…. but either way the first comment (Fortunos) only says it could be a hint then disregards it and that’s the only person I saw regarding Mike and Sandy before Taeshi commenting on how they don’t give out spoilers like that.

Mike is likely a jerk without Sandy. A ship situation most handy. Now onto the bittersweet candy. There’s a bowl and it is quite dandy. The story twists as it turns. The wise reader learns. The conflict still burns as peace on the inside s/he earns. Not out to belittle or fight. Not complaining in any right. Tell you what would be a sight: If this ended in delight.

Eh, wouldn’t be surprised if “Maishul” and Sandy did (if they hadn’t already) break from each other.

I mean, how couldn’t you notice? Sandy’s life, as we saw several chapters before, is orbiting around the big shot kind of future. Secretary? In a building that looked a lot like multinational offices? Any of you are even aware how this kind of job forces you to kill your social life? :(

The way I’m seeing it, Sandy would let Mike go, instead of chaining him down to a romance that’ll be =strictly= over the phone messaging.

Comment ID #188637

Mike use to like Lucy and Lucy didn’t say she liked him back until too late so he got mad. Also, she liked Paulo before Mike, so I guess that could be another reason considering they hate eachother pretty much. But honestly, I don’t think Mike has a reason to /hate/ Lucy. She didn’t really do anything wrong.

kalipinky42 November 5, 2011, 11:07 AM EST.

Comment ID #188638

@Sandra, he explains it in the last pages of the chapter about Acapulco. Basically he knows that Lucy has emotional attachment issues, but the way she deals with them is by “abusing” (its not really abusing its supposed to be light hearted but she still is rude, anyways) her friends, I.E. Mike. Mike just finally gets fed up with Lucy going from one extreme to another, and of her using him like an emotional crutch in order to deal with her problems. He also does not like the fact that Lucy told him that she loved Mike while Mike was dating Sandy. He felt she was making an issue and that her response when he rejected her was over the top.

Anyways, there is more depth to it than that (i.e. it is very possible to write 3-4 page essays on why Mike and Lucy have issues with each other, I and many others have done just that in the past, if you want a much more detailed explanation you should check the comments sections of earlier pages), and if I’ve forgotten anything, then plz fill the gap.

Deuce Moose November 5, 2011, 11:11 AM EST.

Comment ID #188639

@Sandra, I’ll try and make this short but my opinion on it is a bit lengthy >.> anyways, I believe that Mike still has feelings for Lucy, but as you saw in “Hot Pursuit” he… for lack of a better word, needs Sandy. He wants to be with her, and he feels that hurting her in any way, emotional or otherwise is unacceptable. So in order to suppress his feelings for Lucy, he buries them under the thing he thinks will work the best. Anger, spite, and rage.

TL;DR: he’s burying his feelings for Lucy under anger.
Also, this is just my opinion on the matter, I have no definite proof that this is really whats going on, and you are free to form your own opinion on the subject.
… why is it i can only write walls of text…

Short and simple explanation for all the ragin. It’s a free comic, complainers are not in charge, and you can’t expect other people on the internet conform to your standards. If you don’t like it, don’t pretend that your bad feelings and butthurt attitude represent more than just yourself by saying “omg you’re gonna lose fans for that.” you’re an idiot. People don’t follow thd comic based on what the creators do, they follow for the story. Get over YOURself lol.

BREAK UP??? Okay, that sounds too good to be true………………. Sorry, Sandy, you’re probably an okay character, but ever since your chap, it kind of feels like your using Mike as some sort of life-line/emotional crutch rather than anything else (at least to me)……. Oh wow, I feel like I just said something ironic….. O.O …. That can’t be how she sees Mike, right?

On the other hand, I think Lucy’s taking Augustus advice and is acting normal around Mike again :) YAY! Please play video games with Lucy again, Mike! You know you want to, no one can’t pass up a chance to play video games!!

To be honest, though, while I would love for them to be friends again I doubt that Mike and Lucy can have a well-working friendship until Lucy learns to appreciate herself and realize that she doesn’t need anyone to lean on in order to have a happy life.

However, at the same time, Mike’s not going to get out of his little angry social circle of him and Sandy until -someone- reaches out to him, and the only one who could at this point is Lucy…

Then again, that aspect of his character hasn’t really been explored much, I personally have spent this entire weekend playing my NES :3

oh, look… the animation at the top changed.

looks like 600 books were sold, mike and sandy are together!

…and we’re getting the update at noon, instead of midnight, that’s fine.

despite the big red message above the comment box, i wouldn’t be surprised if people still post tonight asking why the update is “late”. :smirk:

just a question about that “ask BCB” thing… is there a reason none of my countless questions have been answered?

seriously, i even tried asking stupid stuff, like most of the questions that get answered… but those never seem to get picked, either. :/

whatever… i hope in the next page, mike beats lucy with the controller she just threw at him, or something.

hell, maybe he’ll throw the entire game system at her, as well as the T.V., and tell her to get out?

Thanatos November 7, 2011, 12:46 AM EST.

Comment ID #188797

That’s so sweet. Mike and Sandy are finally united after that long journey down two blocks. I am in favor of Mike and Sandy.

I think Lucy would be better with Paulo instead of Mike… but I also like Paulo x Jasmine… is there anyone else for Lucy who isn’t already taken? Carter perhaps… lol

I think this is the first time I’ve ever posted on this comic.

My summary:

Team Sandy - Yes!
Team Lucy - No!
Team Daisy - Meh. Persoanlly I don’t like Abby, but they seem to get along
Team Paulo - That would be hilarious to watch

@Thanatos: I’m sure there are a huge flood of questions that get put in. some questions are probably hard to illustrate an answer too. just be patient, good things come to those who wait.

@Kyuuu

What makes you think it’s her looks that makes me what her and Mike together?

They may be struggling because of their distance, but they share a mutual love for one another.

When I see Mike and Lucy I only see a one sided love. Sure, he may have felt something for her in the past, but she blew it.

There is absolutely no reason those two should get together now.

No. This update is not okay and I’m horribly disappointed in you. I got off work with the sole comfort in mind that when I walked home in the rain and cold I would be greeted to an updated BCB page. Instead you do the most blasphemous thing possible and spurn me.

I think I will go die now. I hope you can sleep at night with that weighted on your conscious! D:

Took my comment waaaaaaaay too seriously. Most people would have had the sense to see I was joking ENTIRELY.

I thought the :P face at the end of the comment gave it away, personally.

Edit: Actually, I’m sorry. The way I worded this comment (Above portion.) seemed a little mean to you. Kind of like I implied you to be stupid. I didn’t mean that. Although I did think my previous comment would be seen as a very obvious joke.

Comment ID #188816

The best part of this arc so far besides derp-face is Mike getting beaned in the face with a controller. If I recall, Mike gets owned by Lucy on a regular basis, and Paulo was only able to win because he kissed her.

Comment ID #188817

Omg Taeshi called me cool! I feel like I was just complimented by a celebrity. But not like, Brittany Spears. More like Johnny Depp.

Cause the Depp is one cool cat.

I really love your comic though. Been addicted to it ever since I stumbled across it. Pretty sure I found it through Eerie Cuties. Best Day ever. Read from the first comic and once I caught up I was so sad I’d have to wait like everyone else for updates.

But no in all seriousness, take your time updating. You update on a schedule and you’re always very prompt doing so. Some of the other comics I read only update ONCE a week! Once!

It’s good that Lucy is making an attempt. But she’s still being abusive towards Mike. And for that reason, I can see why he finally snapped where she’s concerned.

At least he had remained civil in the times that he had no choice but to associate with her. I don’t see why so many people can blame him for finally having enough of her abuse.

A classic example is right there in this page. A controller to the face and her completely disregarding his feelings in favor for what she wants.

Comment ID #188823

@Melly

I don’t think the reason why Mike is behaving the way he is now is wholly because of him being fed up with the physical abuse from Lucy. If anything, I bet he most probably had already grown accustomed to it; growing together throughout the years; and could easily interpret that as her way of being playful. (as The Swimmer puts it).


Edgelesspigeon had summed it quite well as to why Mike is acting out in this cold and apathetic manner towards Lucy. For this I find Mike a bit of a prat.

But anyways, Mike seems to be simmering down now, if the next update does not already prove me mistaken. I can’t wait for what happens next, as i’m hopelessly invested in this comic.

Where I live, the updates are at midnight. So that is why I think there is a computer that does it automatically. But I also know that there are BCB fans around the world, so there is a large time difference.

I would have thought that saying “it will be published at noon instead of midnight” implies “it will be published roughly 12 hours after the usual time”. Which is noon EST, not noon wherever you happen to be reading from.

I suppose there’s some value to us having picked midnight EST as the update time. Any later in the day and all the people that don’t understand what a time zone is would start assuming we lie about updating MWF!
