lying around sure is fun
except when you are dying.
She better get some rest.
Heplooner April 6, 2012, 12:00 AM EST.
Dang, how do you make a joke like that, Taeshi? I felt so bad, then I read your comment, then I burst out laughing… now I feel guilt and hilarity!
Anonymous One April 6, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
What goes wrong? Im so so confused! The tension is awesome!
UltimateZ April 6, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
Nope. Chuck Testa. moment would be a killer here…

i can just imagine the hype that
is sure to ensue about the words
visiface April 6, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
Oh dear lord, the surgery probably wasn’t successful then, if she ends up dead
Subaru April 6, 2012, 12:02 AM EST.
… what is she specifically dyeing of? or have we not gotten that far? :|

no incredibly useful hints here. :\
bite me universe, bite me.

Well, i guess she feels like she can finally go in peace. Afterall, Abraham (Father) is finally out of game. She just accepted all that abuse because she was trying to protect her children. What a lovely person… Too bad she’s not with them anymore…

Blah April 6, 2012, 12:08 AM EST.
you drag things out i like and hate that because it gives us more detail but can cause more pain but please don’t change this. for better or for worse this is how the stories in BCB should be told.
i don't know April 6, 2012, 12:09 AM EST.
So she’s dieing? or did die and this is a flashback?
JustSomeCritic April 6, 2012, 12:10 AM EST.
Ah. Perhaps a cracked skull from being bashed over the head, or maybe an artery or something got messed up in the attack.
This got morbid fast; if she dies, Abraham Sr. might get tried for murder (after all, the doctors trying to extract the bullet from James Garfield did more damage than the actual bullet did, but the assassin was the one tried for murder), and if Abbey find’s that to be true, then he’ll likely feel responsible for two deaths.
Well, I suppose we shall eventually find that, unfortunately, cats don’t have nine lives. Particularly in this universe.
CynicaIdealist April 6, 2012, 12:13 AM EST.
JustSomeCritic: The sepia tone would indicate that this is another flashback.
MiwAuturu April 6, 2012, 12:18 AM EST.
I have some experience in medical study, and the fact that Abby’s mom is getting surgery is either a very good thing or a very bad thing.
Very good thing: a doctor usually wouldn’t waste time, money and resources to do surgery in a dieing person. It’s pointless, doing a surgery only to have the patient die of something unrelated. So, getting a surgery usually means your gonna live.
Very bad thing: however, the surgery could be one for actually saving her life. With no IV scans or anything like that in the background, we just have to use what we have: isolation care and blunt force trauma to the head, possibly with lacerations from the lamp breaking. This could be anything from minor skeletal damage to a chunk of your brain being knocked off, there’s just no way to tell at this point. However, getting a surgery is always a good sign in this way: the doctors don’t think your worth giving up on yet. That means they think with the propor treatment, you could make a rebound.
Of course, there’s always the possibility she dies due to complications during the surgery, in which case: DAMN YOU SCIENCE!
Curtisimo April 6, 2012, 12:19 AM EST.
Ya know how people say “This is going nowhere fast.”? Well, this is goin’ somewhere slow! But! Good things are worth waitin’ for. :3
Jessica U. Ingmann April 6, 2012, 12:20 AM EST.
I still wonder if she had some prior illness, but if not then I suppose something vital was ruined by the head trauma…… :\
although I can at least toss disablement out the door with all the turning she’s doing…… ( granted we mostly just see her head, but I doubt that’s it. )
I really am trying not to rip my hair out with the painful slowness D : <3
shdkhfs. April 6, 2012, 12:24 AM EST.
At least her final wish was carried out, and his @&$hole of a father is in custody. Even knowing that, it’s still sad, though.
RIP, Charlotte. Even though your merely a character.
Randommoron5 April 6, 2012, 12:28 AM EST.
@Curtisimo and CynicaIdealist: thanks for clearing that up guys! I was thinking along those line after that (you know head trauma and whatnot)
Different Adam April 6, 2012, 12:29 AM EST.
@Curtisimo, it’s nice that you have medical experience, but are you familiar with the concept of spell check?
El Niño April 6, 2012, 12:31 AM EST.
:[ it’s so sad to just see her lying in that bed, dying….If only things could have been different…Maybe Abbey and his sister could’ve had a better life..
Though I guess then he wouldn’t have met the friends he has now, huh?
I guess it’s like they say, “Everything happens for a reason.” Even if it’s hurtful and sad…
DarkCrystal828 April 6, 2012, 12:33 AM EST.
Hmn one things for head trauma can go either way. Even the surgery to help the problem can very well be life threatening. I actually knew a guy that died from TBI “Traumatic Brain Injury” about six months after he got back from Iraq. Brain injuries are no joke.
starfighter105 April 6, 2012, 12:34 AM EST.
Wow. I just read all of Bcb in the matter of three days ( I just discovered your work.)… I have to say I cried, laughed, and smiled so much… NOW I HAVE TO WAIT TILL MONDAY!!!
Such a sweet comic. I’m tottally waiting for more lucy though. Tottally not cool what mike did to her.
Joseph P. April 6, 2012, 12:38 AM EST.
Surgery huh? I wonder what for. (besides the fact she got hit with a lamp).
Blue Sly April 6, 2012, 12:47 AM EST.
did anyone notice that the nurse looks evil in panel 5, and then the look on Abby’s mom’s face in the very next one? something about this hospital is not right.
sen April 6, 2012, 1:27 AM EST.
That remembers me to m cousin s mother. she was very ill and dying, but she had the courage to search for a foster family (my uncles) for her. You have to be very brave, cold minded and love very much your kids. She’s a woman that earned all my respects, such as abbey s mom is doing right now.
Congratulations for such a great chapter. I’m happy you decided to park it until now that you improved your style. It would not bye that good otherwise.

Hey,@crystal are you a girl,are you hot
lov/hate April 6, 2012, 2:19 AM EST.
how does the nurse look anything resembling EVIL, sen?
smiles, a concerned look… yes, all the makings of a heartless monster who experiments on people in a dungeon.
also, would you look happy after hearing the words “last meal”, and “surgery”, knowing you’re dying, and will never see your kids again?
Thanatos April 6, 2012, 2:21 AM EST.
“Last meal,” what a morbid term. Why not use something cheerier, like maybe, “crowning repast.” That sounds a little less depressing.
Xenos April 6, 2012, 2:31 AM EST.
Oh good going nurse. Call it a last meal why don’t you. What’s next, read patients their rites before going into surgery? :I
Tacsi April 6, 2012, 2:31 AM EST.
It’s what a mother needs, to know her kids are gonna be okay. I wonder how much time all of this takes, from the confrontation with his father, to the foster home, and her death. Here’s hoping the next strips show how things went from here up to her passing! Abbey’s story is always so interesting, I’m happy you’re really developing it, Taeshi.
Travis April 6, 2012, 2:35 AM EST.
That woman’s strong… :3
PurpleLeaf April 6, 2012, 3:05 AM EST.
i really hate how the nurse calls it HER LAST MEAL. like i get she doesnt mean it like that but im like why. this is obviously just here to punch us in feelings u___u
Jade April 6, 2012, 3:18 AM EST.
BAD NURSE! You said it wrong again. You were supposed to say” Last meal for the day,” that way she thinks she’ll make it through the surgery.
Alkaizer87 April 6, 2012, 3:19 AM EST.
Good she is OK for now but it won’t last that long…either she died,move away or other,I am just glad she is…kinda fine now but it wouldn’t last as I said.It is terrible that her husband treated her that way but it ended at least.If she is gonna die after that surgery which would probably will,let her rest in peace…I feel abit depressed because of this page.
... April 6, 2012, 3:49 AM EST.
Kekeke. I love the last question on the survey. Can’t wait to see the results for that one. x3
Also, gotta say. Nurse. Bad wording on your part there. e_e

Maishul April 6, 2012, 9:22 AM EST.
Very interesting last question in the survey Taeshi. Love your webcomic. Anyways, it’s sad that Abbey’s mother is dying, but at least she’s happy with the thought that they can have a new life away from their father.

Aaaaaaaand just finished the survey. It really is quick. Everyone should do it.
And I’m not just sucking up either, seriously go and do it.
Reading it through it could severely help out the site(possibly effect the story, can’t for certain on that).

Be careful to play too much with flashbacks, you might create a rift in time and create a super vortex with ayoo beams everywhere, and that “speaking of the devil” thing kidnapping everyone.

Hey guys, this is an opinion i have and put on the survey that is up there but i was wondering how many of you agree.
“The bit about if i was okay with the serious chapters or not.
I dont mind seeing the serious side of BCB as a matter o’fact that is kinda what makes it so great! My only issue is the drama drags on far too long with Monday,Wednesday,Friday updates.
Drama sections need to be shorter or updated more often. A slow drama part is just a downer man “

Poor Charlotte, you’ll be missed, she may have been a minor/recurring character in Abbey’s childhood but she’s really important due to what has happened, even if some people don’t even notice it.

Still assuming she’s dead and not, like, the undertaker in that picturesque little cemetary. You know what they say, if you don’t see the inscription or the corpse there’s no guarantee.

Geraldo April 6, 2012, 7:22 PM EST.
I guess she’s having brain surgery…and she didn’t make it…or she decided to do something wrong so she could suicide during the surgery…or just plain suicided.

I’d suggest to link the survey in the page’s comment, too. some people don’t pass through the home page and may miss it.
for example, I knew about the survey only because I read the comments, but there’s surely some people who don’t read them at all.
boh... April 7, 2012, 9:31 AM EST.
A lovely person? Of course she is a good person, but a rel mother would have taken her children and left that awful husband behind….

Just filled the survey, LOVED the last question hahahaha!
Paw April 7, 2012, 8:37 PM EST.
Its good to see more of Abbey’s backstory, knowing how him and Molly got into their current home, its enlightening and saddening all at the same time. If she had to go, I hope their mom went out in peace, not pain.
Keep up the great work, these storys always seem so gripping because I want to know what comes next. Thank you for MWF updates

Gonna say this now because I forgot to on the survey….
Go back to Top web comics!!! You were consistently high in the rankings! Plus, you update a lot more than anyone else, so readers will vote more. I still don’t know why you left in the first place.
S0me001 April 8, 2012, 2:43 AM EST.
She just closed her eyes, and she passed on. How tragic; but at the same time, so strangely heartwarming. At least she won’t suffer any longer.
Redd April 8, 2012, 3:28 AM EST.
I think one reason why I keep reading this and possibly why others do, is that they’re waiting for this bright light at the end of this/these dark tunnel(s), but damn if it isn’t one long tunnel. How long can one run through despair before reaching hope?
As for Abbey, I can feel his pain(s), but I think he needs to start choosing his battles, instead of trying to fight all of them. It’s great that he fights for a just cause in opposition to someone who doesn’t give a crap, but he should be careful not to become the beast he set out to slay.
I read this stuff April 8, 2012, 5:44 AM EST.
S0me001, it was mainly because the benefit of being there was so limited, yet readers seemed to work super hard to vote for us there. I felt bad that people were going out of their way to regularly vote for us when it wasn’t all that useful - I’d rather use reader goodwill for things like the survey above.
SuitCase April 8, 2012, 9:45 AM EST.
Making fun of death isn’t amusing Taeshi. Good job.
Radish April 8, 2012, 10:43 AM EST.
I wonder if anybody here can relate to Abbey. However, in truth, most people have their own stories to tell. I’d really like to ask- who here has recently attended a funeral. I did yesterday. You know…as the days go by, I realize that which each passing day I grow closer to death. It’s the same for each and every one of us. I question the meaning of death itself. It’s beginning and end. It’s a shame when loved ones have to die, but you learn to live with it.
TraceLegacySSOF April 8, 2012, 10:48 AM EST.
I feel so sorry for Abbey’s mom. She has to have surgery and make sure her kids are FAR away from their father. Oh poor her. Surgery is definitely NOT something to be happy about when your kids are going to see you RIGHT before it. I don’t wanna see Abbey upset, nor Molly. I hope that their mother makes it, because those negative comments are NOT helping her! So AT LEAST be kind and watch as she grows confidence. She deserves to be cheered on not booed and discouraged. She is pretty much dying and even saying that word feels mean! She is discouraged by what you people say to her and alone when her kids aren’t there. Abbey deserves to see his mother happy, not crying because she thinks she may die and not be able to take care of her kids! Make her happy with encouragement and cheer her on. Help her through the toughest times to be able to survive. She deserves to be told she will live.
An Angel I am April 8, 2012, 11:43 AM EST.

It’s terrible that she has to go like that, I think. At least Abbey’s father got what was coming to him. I’ve always wondered about Abbey and why he’s so passionate about protecting those he cares for, and I’m glad we can finnally see why he’s the way he is- quiet, protective and an extremely well-developed character who is among my favorites. Of all the comics, this arc has to be my favorite. I wonder what happens next… Well, tommorrow we can find out! I just wish we could have learned a little more about Charolette.
Romano April 8, 2012, 7:31 PM EST.
Abbeys dad must be pure evil to hit her that hard to kill her
kitteh April 8, 2012, 9:44 PM EST.
What a loving mother. It would seem that she planned that Abraham would try something like that, so he’d get arrested and her kids would go to a loving foster family. And with that, she can leave this plane of existence with absolutely no regrets. I’ll bet there’s going to be a very special place for her in Heaven.
Abbey and Molly are very lucky to having mother who’s willing to sacrifice so much for her kids. And Daisy is lucky to have that same person as a future mother-in-law.
