We got the scanner and spent a day rescanning and colour-correcting the chapter. It’s less vivid than before, but hey — this is how watercolours work.
argh!!!! yashy ¬ ¬ i hate you, i think that jasmine was the one who throw the snowball
LuckyCat May 2, 2012, 12:00 AM EST.
Hey! Yashy and Chirpy! We haven’t seen them in a while!
ScrabMaster May 2, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
$5 says Lucy’s cuttin’
UltimateZ May 2, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
Hahaha, most people were wrong about who threw the snowball. It’s great to see Yashi and Chirpy for the first time in quite some time.
Qsandas May 2, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
Not sure if he should be happy for the distraction or not.
Saw the new BCB ad, Lucy makes a surprisingly good spinning head of death.
Teeroy766 May 2, 2012, 12:02 AM EST.
Oh god what’s Paulo looking aaaaaaaaaat.
Also if you want to make them more vivid, just change the saturation or vibrance once you scan them on Photoshop.
Rye May 2, 2012, 12:02 AM EST.
Yashi and Chirpy! It’s been so long girls~
By they way, “i’m not robbing ya or anything” One of the many reasons why I love Paulo.
Vega May 2, 2012, 12:02 AM EST.
Wonder what he saw…
Ice Shield May 2, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
Dr. Paulo searches the home for clues to his patient’s mysterious illness! With a cane!
Whatever the answer may be, we know it’s not Lupus!
Solvek May 2, 2012, 12:04 AM EST.
Haha, I’m with UltimateZ, bet Paulo is looking at Lucy blood, from a cutting session… yes I know it’s serious, but I’m just so happy to see yashy and chirpy again
Foreveryoung5 May 2, 2012, 12:05 AM EST.
DAMMIT! so many cliffhangers!
Maishul May 2, 2012, 12:06 AM EST.
I had a feeling after reading someone comment last page, “Jasmine is too well mannered to throw snowballs at someone in front of an open door”.
Wonder what’s gonna happen now, it’s going in an unexpected direction for me. I figured the chapter was going to just tease a lil bit about meeting up with Lucy, and turn into a PauloxJazz chapter. Though I still don’t completely doubt that happening, I feel Paulo will have something more weighing on his conscience after this.
Fenfir May 2, 2012, 12:08 AM EST.
Chirpy, Yashi, and Lily? Finally! I missed them all.
Also, I’m really curious to see what Paulo’s looking at. Probably Lucy, but what’s she doing? Hmm…
Can’t wait for Friday!
Purple Platypi May 2, 2012, 12:09 AM EST.
Taeshi- really loving the new style. It being a chapter with Paulo in it doesn’t hurt things either.
Also, good to see the AskBCB blog getting an update. Thanks !
Kurtispj May 2, 2012, 12:10 AM EST.
Or she’s with Final Fantasy Cat and He’ll attack him thinking he’s ebil.
Delusional May 2, 2012, 12:10 AM EST.
So Lily seems to know about Lucy’s current problems but Yashy and Chirpy are oblivious to it. That should be interesting to see unfold in the next few pages depending on how Paulo first reacts to Lucy’s state.
It’s good to know Lily is always able to be a caretaker for Lucy even if she is ironically her pet.
Everyone can always count on Lily to know what’s up.
ThatGuy May 2, 2012, 12:11 AM EST.
And then Paulo finds out what Mike did and beats the **** out of him.
No but really now, his face wouldn’t just change from happy to ಠ_ಠ without seeing something happening to Lucy. The only thing I can think of is she’s crying or just trying to sleep the rest of her life away. Maybe playing a video game but not having too much interest in it, and he can just FEEL the pain/sadness in her eyes? I just hope he finds out what Mike did and does something about it. :l
DerpyDero May 2, 2012, 12:15 AM EST.
I can’t express just how happy I am to see the pets after all this time! It’s like a breath of fresh air and a long overdue return to a hometown. It’s a good feeling
akipolies May 2, 2012, 12:20 AM EST.
Paulo and Lucy =D That bridge should never be burnt down, ever.
kelistics May 2, 2012, 12:21 AM EST.
I swear to God, she better not have tried to kill herself, if she did or does, im done wth this……who am i kidding, this is my addiction.
Redneck May 2, 2012, 12:23 AM EST.
Oh dear, I have a very bad feeling about what Paulo just saw. However, I’m very certain it’s gonna be Paulo to the rescue again.
NBbowler May 2, 2012, 12:25 AM EST.
How nice! I thought it might be her.
Hoheh May 2, 2012, 12:28 AM EST.
I almost posted a joke, but you know what? No. No joking about this plot development.
Neospector May 2, 2012, 12:30 AM EST.
Holy crap I missed that little lizard
Heheh Paulo’s breaking and entering
And what’s in the door(peaks in)
Shoop-a-doop May 2, 2012, 12:31 AM EST.
Fine my computer lives it shall not be blown to piecies ohh lucy what you up to?
funnymaster May 2, 2012, 12:31 AM EST.
…. She’s in there with a boy or she is crying. I KNOW IT I JUST KNOW IT! Oh dang you cliffhangers!
feralsoul May 2, 2012, 12:31 AM EST.
Your goig to wish you didn’t go in paulo

Pepe Le Pew May 2, 2012, 12:34 AM EST.
Ohohoh, what’s goin on in there?
H-Chan8 May 2, 2012, 12:37 AM EST.
Just give her a hug Paulo. You know you want to.
Robin May 2, 2012, 12:44 AM EST.
Paulo’s “Mike-Really-****ed-Up-And-Lucy-Is-In-Terrible- Pain” senses are tingling. I can only imagine that whatever he spotted through the doorway is something that is confirming what’s wrong. . __.
I dunno why, but for some reason I wanna believe that he’s seeing Lucy’s mom and Lucy sitting together, with Lucy’s mother trying to comfort her and cheer her up. I want it to be like that so, SO BADLY. But y’know…
Nothing is ever that simple or nice. e_e
Erg, I’m antsy.
Yaschiri May 2, 2012, 12:44 AM EST.
My theory; after her inevitable breakup with Mike, she lost all control of her thoughts and basic motor skills. Now she is a shrivvled up mess, surrounded by a pool of urine and feces as a product of her uncontrollable bowel movements. Imma just let you picture that for a moment…
FoodForThought May 2, 2012, 12:46 AM EST.
Now what I really want to see is Paulo find out that mike’s being an butt an have Paulo go an whoop mike. I know it’s old news but he still deserves it. >.
Robin May 2, 2012, 12:47 AM EST.
-sigh- i hate paulo!
JLaw May 2, 2012, 12:52 AM EST.
She’s in her room.
With a blue scarf.
That’s my guess.
Blazenarm May 2, 2012, 12:54 AM EST.
Now all we need is for Blur to sweep in and say “hi”. I love this art style, it’s just so much less dramatic! Why doesn’t anyone ever bring me cake when I’m not feeling well?
Xenos May 2, 2012, 12:57 AM EST.
For once, I am very grateful for Yashy’s existence! Honestly, I have no clue what’s in that room.. he looks kinda annoyed looking into it, but maybe that’s without a reaction. Maybe she’s sitting there with her brother, or mother, or maybe it’s not Lucy at all(Because if it actually WAS Lucy, that’d be way too obvious). If it is, I just hope she’s not angsting in darkness, we already went through THAT arc I really like Paulo’s expression in panel 8, the eyes look great!
Clare May 2, 2012, 1:09 AM EST.
(╯°□°）╯Friday Y U No Get Here Faster!!! i want my drama!!
Luna May 2, 2012, 1:23 AM EST.
hmmm… the look on his face is just not what you would normally see when there is something wrong with someone and you just walk in on them… it seems like a face of curiosity… she must not be in the room. lily could easily lie about her actually being there, also as soon as paulo said if he could give the box to lucy she just paused then said that she was “busy.” Lucy probably never came back home when mike *a-hole* said that quote-by-quote nobody could love you for who you are. She probably ran away because she litteraly thought that she was hated by EVERYONE. must have ran away to someone or somewhere and hasn’t returned home since. whether it’s the back of an alley or the top floor of a tall building then splattered on the street, she doesn’t seem to be home…
welp guess this is why there called “cliffhangers,” ehh?
Smoky May 2, 2012, 1:29 AM EST.
Paulo’s gonna be like “crushing time now” for mike…
I really hope Paulo slips up and says something along the line of “so, does this mean you wanna bang or what?”
Pshyzo May 2, 2012, 2:00 AM EST.
I WAS SO SURE SHE WAS JASMINE, BUT SHE WASN’T!!!!!!!
I must remember that the most problable possibility is hardly ever the right one, in BCB.
I love you yashi.
(then how will paulo meet jasmine in this chapter?)
I think the following page is the all-black one. I saw it here.
boh... May 2, 2012, 2:09 AM EST.
O_O oh gosh lucy what are you doing now.. ?
Geb May 2, 2012, 2:10 AM EST.
Oh noooo. I have a terrible feeling about this.
Eeyup May 2, 2012, 2:23 AM EST.
what has he seen? I’ll just have to wait.
Alexander B May 2, 2012, 2:24 AM EST.
Doorway Paulo is watching you masturbate
Tacsi May 2, 2012, 2:27 AM EST.
Whatever Paulo is seeing, doesn’t seem to be good at all. Is it Lucy curled in a ball in her dark room? Or is she sleeping? Or does she just have a depressed look on her face completed with a hunched appearance? Or is Lucy simply not there and he found something else? OH, I can’t wait until Friday, I want to know what’s he’s seeing.
Subaru May 2, 2012, 2:31 AM EST.
i hope im wrong
mott May 2, 2012, 3:19 AM EST.
shes trying to hang herself!
matt May 2, 2012, 3:20 AM EST.
On Panel 6, Paulo looks evil
EricKm May 2, 2012, 3:43 AM EST.
I hope we get a repeat of Another Path
Pontus May 2, 2012, 4:26 AM EST.
Paulo, what are you looking at…? 030
PurpleLeaf May 2, 2012, 4:37 AM EST.
…I have a strange feel…can’t wait for next page.
... May 2, 2012, 5:07 AM EST.
Considering everything what’s happend so far……..I don’t think what Paulo sees in that room is gonna be good.
I’m thinking a really, really, really, REALLY depressed Lucy…to the point of psycholgical damage.
I mean…….have you SEEN the new online add for this comic?!
Death of Ink May 2, 2012, 5:47 AM EST.
anonymous May 2, 2012, 5:55 AM EST.
@Blaze: I won’t even get into how deliciously creepy that would be.
The guy she has already been practically suicidally protective and mournful over, the first student she ever got along with, apparently hates her so much he specifically focused on her severe fear of abandonment. Heh.
Hoheh May 2, 2012, 6:19 AM EST.
Lucy might be crying..
jun May 2, 2012, 6:19 AM EST.
I bet Lucy isn’t even here xD
Blacki May 2, 2012, 6:55 AM EST.
i just realized the speech bubble in the last panel isn’t Paulo’s if you look closely the direction it is facing is away from Paulo and the manner in which it is said sounds like someone who is exasperated about talking to her so that means someone may already be talking to Lucy. i wonder who but i have a few guesses…
i don't know May 2, 2012, 7:14 AM EST.
Plot is so addictive!!!
Friday needs to come!!!
Who Cares? May 2, 2012, 7:19 AM EST.
Lord only knows what Paulo is about to see.
I’m really scared for Lucy’s mental state as of right now.
ChocolateHedgehog May 2, 2012, 7:22 AM EST.
Honestly .. I have a feeling she’ll be sleeping, and Paulo is only reacting like that because she looks so peaceful.
You guys scare me some times with all the bad thoughts, geeze o.o”
sarahrawr May 2, 2012, 7:40 AM EST.
lecowrangler May 2, 2012, 7:52 AM EST.
i am so super excited!!
but the fact that this chapter so so short means that nothing extremely drastic is going to happen
pikachu May 2, 2012, 8:14 AM EST.
YASHY IS BACK JERKFACES!
Blare May 2, 2012, 8:15 AM EST.
By virtue of the slightly visible comic pages in the fundraiser post, it looks to me as if Lucy’s just moping in her room. Dunno. Looks for an interesting development, and a bit more pauloxlucy. Knowing taeshi, however, there’s a fair chance that paulo’s going to be “extracted” from lucy’s house, allowing jasmine to sneak into the chapter.
ian May 2, 2012, 8:20 AM EST.
This is bad. This is so, so bad.
RavenHeart98 May 2, 2012, 8:24 AM EST.
Stuff’s about to get real and Paulo is about to find a reason to whoop Mishul’s @$$!
Suzume May 2, 2012, 8:33 AM EST.
I just don’t see Lucy as the type to be a cutter. I’m afraid she thinks she might be pregnant — but that’s silly, She’s crazy but she’s not nut-zos whack-job crazy, right? Right? She’s not preggers?
geneseepaws May 2, 2012, 8:48 AM EST.
@i don’t know,
That is paulo’s speech bubble, note there’s a panel divider between panel 10 and 11. panel 10 is paulo speaking with an open door towards his left and the speech bubble is to his back, panel 11 is the same view just without a speech bubble and him looking through the open door.
strider May 2, 2012, 8:59 AM EST.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE go back to the old art style!!!
Alex May 2, 2012, 9:29 AM EST.
I don’t know if its the watercolouring that the scanning picked up or its how the watercolours were done, but either way - looks like Paulo is seeing something he wished he hadn’t and its depressing him.
Like everyone else, I can’t wait for Friday’s upload
ThisGuy May 2, 2012, 9:32 AM EST.
Yep, most likely Yashy, but what awaits for us when Paulo sees through the doorway, only time will tell…
Also, I feel like doing this: FUS-Ro-Dah! (no valid reason)
Starkeyblade May 2, 2012, 9:41 AM EST.
I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT! I NEED TO KNOWWWWWWWWW NOWWWWWWW RRRRRRAGGHGG! SO TEMPTING
Shannon May 2, 2012, 10:49 AM EST.
Really? Oh my gosh, Paulo is probably seeing Lucy upset, or somethin’. Ya know gets ****** off and is set to kill Mike, for hurting Lucy. Somethin’ like that.
The Unknown... May 2, 2012, 11:08 AM EST.
so it WAS yashy! i wonder why paulo has the unamused face. oh well. must wait…
the 9th 9ball May 2, 2012, 12:18 PM EST.
Oh nonononono Paulo you’re so amazing and concerned for Lucy .. but.. after all that devastating drama Mike has provoked Lucy with.. I still think Lucy either hang herself with one of Mike’s old scarfs, is cutting herself as we speak, is crying her eyes and heart out or is lying lifelessly on the bed, without anyone noticing dead…….. this is so horrible.. I Seriously hope Lucy’s okay and none of the things mentioned above ever happened to her!!
Lucy-Luce May 2, 2012, 1:43 PM EST.
Aaaaaand Paulo makes solid use of distractions to make his move!
Though I do wonder in what state he’s going to find Lucy…perhaps incredibly reclusive?
Also, likin the new watercolor style
Chocothunda May 2, 2012, 2:38 PM EST.
Ah, poor naive Yashi and Chirpy. If only they knew Lucy’s plight. Then again, maybe it’s for the better…
TheX400096 May 2, 2012, 2:53 PM EST.
I bet it’s not even Lucy :C
ChexMix May 2, 2012, 3:10 PM EST.
It’s obvious that what he’s seeing is the fulfillment of page 2. You guys are so dark.
Ghastly May 2, 2012, 4:10 PM EST.
@strider ah thank you i didn’t notice that better pay closer attention. but now i feel like an idiot.
i don't know May 2, 2012, 4:18 PM EST.
Maybe it’s not Lucy at all; perhaps-IT’S HER BROTHER WITH A DOUBLE BARREL SHOTGUN! RUN, PAULO, RUN! *BLAM*
Sorry, I had to say that. Lovin’ the art style, it just took me about a day to get used to.
CynicaIdealist May 2, 2012, 4:37 PM EST.
anonymous May 2, 2012, 4:45 PM EST.

hmmm well, where did Luce go? shower? brushing her fur? I don’t lets wait till friday!

Soooooo glad to have some non-dramatic pages to read, its like a breath of fresh air. Btw Nice job on the art.
Echo May 2, 2012, 5:13 PM EST.
Augustus get the hell out of there I ****ING HATE YOU!!!!!!! I hope you die. Die i tell you,die!!!!!!!!
Michael May 2, 2012, 5:17 PM EST.
Solvek, don’t you ****ing dare compare paulo to HOUSE.
that is like comparing a twilight lover to JESUS CHRIST, it’s just wrong, and you should be shot for it.
now, why the hell does paulo insist of intruding on people’s property?
the ******* has no right to even be alive, let alone going into people’s homes!
…i hate paulo.
also, yeah, watercolor sucks, it’s too sloppy and fuzzy, not vivid or sharp at all, go back to the old style.
Thanatos May 2, 2012, 6:12 PM EST.
Paulo.Paulo.Paulo. What have you got you’re self into now.
N7 May 2, 2012, 6:45 PM EST.
Was Augustus even at the party?? It could also be Mike- or Abbey. If it was Michael, Lucy should be pushing him away.
Minty Winter May 2, 2012, 6:58 PM EST.
A-HAH. I FOUND THE COMMENTS.
You have no clue how long I’ve been looking for these things. /*******
Anywayyy it’s Yashy! <3 Haven’t seen her in forever! I don’t know why, but I love her little antics about everything, even if it does quite get in the way a lot. But now it’s time to find Lucy.
Lucyyy… come out, come out, wherever you areee…
Is she dead? Because that would not be cool. D :
JC May 2, 2012, 6:59 PM EST.
I saw this page and actually said the word “Yashy” out loud in glee. OH YASHY. HOW I HAVE MISSED YOU.
Anyway, just like I predicted on this chapter’s first page, Taeshi has definitely improved with this new style! I’m starting to like it more than the old one now!
Turbocharge May 2, 2012, 7:23 PM EST.
This might just be a problem with the water colors, but in the last two panels you can’t really tell where the divide is between the two panels because the color seeps though the lines.
nAar May 2, 2012, 7:45 PM EST.
It took a couple years but Yashy makes another appearance!
toast May 2, 2012, 8:14 PM EST.
Ah, seeing the little mischievous pets again brings back memories to the times when I first started reading BCB, and believe me … they were good times. Yashy calling Mike ‘flea’, as he snaps an equally witty repartee that causes Yashy to fly into a rage, only to have Lucy rope her in…or is it a he? Anyways, good times.
Sphun May 2, 2012, 9:18 PM EST.

Why isn’t Lucy Heterochromic while all of her siblings ARE heterochromic
EricKm May 3, 2012, 6:52 AM EST.
Wow, what a chump. You ****ing sleaze, Paulo.
StushiJaguar May 3, 2012, 1:01 PM EST.
This is Paulo He looks in the door He takes in detail
Lucy is in there she sees him He says something about, “what happened” and she looks at him like this.
Mike walks up to Paulo “What do you want?!”
THUS THE CAT FIGHT BEGINS!!!
I will know who you are May 3, 2012, 2:41 PM EST.
WHATS HE SEEN O.O
