I would gladly punch him.
I also really like the color in the house at the background :3
Emy August 5, 2013, 1:00 PM EST.
Is that a metaphor or he really got a punch?
Mike, your word what a sarcasm.
HongKat August 5, 2013, 1:00 PM EST.
Mike is so short compared to Paulo.
Maybe you’ll learn to treat people with more humility you little ****.
Canny August 5, 2013, 1:01 PM EST.
Well, atleast Mike is somewhat getting normal again.
DK3 August 5, 2013, 1:01 PM EST.
So short, Mike.

The funniest part is Mike understands how Paulo feels, being in such a bad situation by his own doing. You can tell by the smile, he isn’t being mean at all but actually sympathizes. Maybe the two will kiss and make up finally like they did with the soda contest.
Zorak August 5, 2013, 1:03 PM EST.
Suddenly, random Mike.
Such a simple page, here. Just…Mike walks by, Paulo says something, Mike responds with wry comment. That’s IT. And I LOVE IT.
Although…”That’s your gig”…I’m entirely sure why, but I get the feeling that’s just going to make him feel worse. If anything, it just feels supporting of what Jasmine just told him.
Oceanus92 August 5, 2013, 1:03 PM EST.
It seems weird to go to such a topic after the last chapter. I’m sure it’ll all come together though.
triadinfinity August 5, 2013, 1:03 PM EST.
And then someone Punches Mike in the face and replies with:
And yours too

Wonder what will happen on the last page of this chapter to round off Paulo’s day?
Chrisd765 August 5, 2013, 1:06 PM EST.
Lol owned Paulo.
At least mike is actin normal aging still hope for the big reveal about what mike did soon. I was hopin it was happining with sue but I guess not. Ow well I can wait for the last of my mike hate to stay till then cause he seriously needs to do this soon.
Dr.Rockit August 5, 2013, 1:06 PM EST.
I don’t know how many times I’ve said now, but it’s highly appropriate.

Owonyc August 5, 2013, 1:24 PM EST.
Mikey, you have just raised my respect for you. Just a teensy bit, but it’s still respect. The funniest part is that he’s making light of their encounter earlier, which means that Paulo is [probably] forgiven.
Sashimi August 5, 2013, 1:24 PM EST.

In all fairness, Paulo was not being immature. Jazzy was. Paulo didn’t know he loved lucy, but when he realizes he breaks up with jaz. Jazzy on the other hand blew him off for school. She decides to “maturely” break up with him so that she can have him later. She was putting him on an emotion locomotive with her actions.
My conclusion, in context of just their relationship, Jazzy is really immature. Evidenced by her inability to spend time with him, kiss him, or that episode where she is looking for the pity at the sleepover when she is the one who made them fight with her constantly blowing him off for clubs.
That being said, on the Lucy/Paulo relationship, Paulo is really immature. But it’s possible that this is because it is his first real love. He has no idea what to do about it. I’d wager his love for Tess was like puppy love.
I_Love_Lucy August 5, 2013, 2:46 PM EST.
Paulo—> true immature!
Laguhez August 5, 2013, 2:52 PM EST.
mike is so short in comparison to paulo it’s really cute oh lordy
also mandatory comment about enjoying the backgrounds right here ah yes (it looks difficult, too, considering how it’s paint)
Alicia August 5, 2013, 2:54 PM EST.
Hahaha, love it. Simple and funny, also love that Mike finally gets a shot off at Paulo.
buchanen_neket August 5, 2013, 3:00 PM EST.
sleeping with someone because “your sad” is not puppy love, also Jazzy was talking about Paulo in general not Paulo in their relationship and she is right. Paulo has the potential to grow to be a mature person. Remember they’re kids they are aloud to be immature, nothing shameful about it.
Jazzy may be immature too but she also younger than him take from that what you will. She was explaining to Paulo her feelings which I feel she had a right too, since he was just kinda assuming what her feelings were. Yeah she did it harshly but sometimes harsh is what is needed. To be honest there is really no “right” way to go about this. She didn’t call him a jerk or an ******* so i think she did this as mature as a kid in middle school can.
Plot Twist August 5, 2013, 3:01 PM EST.
Panels 1, 2 & 3: Mike is trying SO HARD to ‘not notice’ Paulo! = lolz!
@Chrisd765: It will start raining…?
5Cats August 5, 2013, 3:05 PM EST.
Jazzy was just saying that out of spite. She broke it off with him just as much as he did. Paulo never told her who he broke it off with her for, it could have ben Rachel for all she knows. And she shows up to a party sees her ex who is single getting close to another woman who is also single, gets all jelly and ignores him all night. Then as they are leaving Paulo makes an effort to smooth things over,then BAM! Jealous hurtful comment from Jazz. And she says he is immature. Well he is in some ways, teenager Duh. Just reaffirms my notion that you cant stay close friends with your ex.
@ I_Love_Lucy I agree.

When the heck did Paulo get so tall? I always thought Mike was supposed to be the lanky, whippy, athletic one. And that’s gotta be the first time in a while that Mike has almost totally blanked Paulo when he’s been hurtin’. Say what you like, Mike has tried to be in Paulo’s corner before.
StushiJaguar August 5, 2013, 3:56 PM EST.
MIKE IS ABUSING PAULO! HE TOTALLY SAID THAT TO HURT HIS FEELINGS! OUTRAGE! ! !
LoL nope. It was mental abuse. Totally. /sarcasm
Arguments? Paulo haircut and his swag are arguments! No other needed, hurr deedurr.
Don’t you know? He was based on Joe Pesci character from “Godfellas”. That’s why he acted like that in “December”.
Boy I’m mean today.
Commander_Zero August 5, 2013, 3:56 PM EST.
Also since when is Mike 4 feet tall?
InternetFlamer August 5, 2013, 3:57 PM EST.
I very much agree. I thought Jazzy handled the break-up very maturely at first. Aside from the whole “assuming they would get back together at a later date” thing, she had a good reason for breaking it off with him, and let’s be honest, who HASN’T ever ended a relationship with the idea that maybe it could work out later? But she hasn’t handled the fall-out very well at all. Jealousy is never rational, but jealousy when you’ve already rejected or broken up with someone is worse than normal jealousy, I think. She has no claim on Paulo any more and what (or who ) he does with his time is no longer her business.
Paulo, on the other hand, has displayed a lot of contradictory traits. He’s at different times incredibly mature, and incredibly immature. Some of that is just his personality. He’s a very happy-go-lucky, light-hearted kinda guy, but he’s also hiding a lot of issues behind that exterior. While he’s done some dumb things in the girl department (dating Jazzy at all, in the first place, for one), he’s always been a good friend to everyone in the group, even Mike at times, and he’s been trying his best to be on good terms with Jazzy, while all she’s done is ignore and belittle him.

Is it me or is the house getting closer to them? Secret revelation that the house is the evil culprit of Lucy to assasinate the two of them?
Nah, that would never happen.
KewaN August 5, 2013, 5:38 PM EST.
TOP PRIORITY: Change Mike’s description so it says “Nice-Guy-turned-*******”. The guy isn’t even nice enough to punch him in the face, let alone ask him what’s wrong and try to help. Seriously, this comic used to be a comedy with occasional drama. Now it’s turned into a MENTAL TRAGEDY. If nothing else, email me and tell me if Lucy will return at some point. If you say no, I will be very ******. I’ll be honest, I used to look forward to reading this comic every day, but I’m beginning to dread reading it, only doing so hoping that something GOOD will happen for once and things will begin to go back to normal.
I'll Eat Yourself August 5, 2013, 5:38 PM EST.
Don’t read it if you don’t like it. No one is forcing you to read it and the comic doesn’t have to sway into another direction just because you deem it so.
So seriously. Keep your comments to yourself.
Jordan August 5, 2013, 5:47 PM EST.
When will Lucy come back? I really want to see her again. I mean I figure it will be probably next chapter since you gotta finish this soon, and it will be in bits or pieces maybe since she disappeared. Lucy is my favourite

lol I missed helluva debate in these past days. but I’m kinda glad I didn’t step into it.
here’s my opinion: jasmine may have been a bit spiteful but I think it’s because he saw him fooling around with rachel even though he broke up with jasmine because he loved lucy (and she knows it’s lucy. remember the play?). in fact, I don’t discard the hypothesis that she got convinced of his immaturity at that very moment.
in the end, I’m neither pro nor against jasmine. in fact she might actually regret having said that, in the future. hell, even satan-spawn-mike did, with what he said to lucy!
boh... August 5, 2013, 7:41 PM EST.

Sanitarium August 5, 2013, 9:16 PM EST.
Yeah, Jazz wasn’t exactly taking the high road there either… Really came across as more of a hit below the belt from her than a proper understanding and acknowledgment. As for Paulo… well yes he is immature… but he’s doing WAY better than most others we’ve seen so far…

No but seriously, I love how the updates are everyday (except for weekends ) and that Mike is so short compared to Paulo. Poor Paulo, he needs Lucy to come back so they can hook up. I don’t believe in Mike x Lucy anymore, they just need to be friends again.

Sorry if you feel left out, for the record, you’ve been a pretty good opponent so far. I just wanted to take a shot at Boh’s avoiding our argument, I included commander_zero because we were pretty fierce combatants back in December. It was meant to be a bit of a joke between us, sorry it’s just you’re a bit of newcomer to our little spats.
buchanen_neket August 6, 2013, 1:35 AM EST.
Paulo as much as I would love to punch you in the face, break your nose and **** you out I can’t do that because a.) I know your pain( sorta) also b.) Ironically enough Mike is probably the guy to talk to right now for what just happpend to you. Also nice one Mike
RPG Nerd August 6, 2013, 1:37 AM EST.
I might as well say my piece about Paulo and Jasmine while I’m here.
Alright. Paulo broke up with Jazz because he loves Lucy. I don’t know why Jazz broke up with Paulo but it was mutual. Also if I’m correct Jazz had a big break down after her and Paulo broke up. Jazz could be ****** at Paulo for a number of things. Maybe its the fact that its only about a few weeks at the most since they broke up and he is already getting comfortable with a girl he slept with before. Also the fact that While Jazz did say some hurt full things they were true. I do believe Paulo needs to mature before he enters any serious relationship especially with Lucy who is a very dependent person.
The fact the Jazz saw him with another girl so soon after they broke up my have made her reevaluate her feelings\relationship with Paulo.
I am not even going to try to think of went through her head but she said what she said to hurt him or for him to realize how much her hurt her or something like that. All in all I do not support either if them and I remain in No Mans Land right in the middle of this conflict.
RPG Nerd August 6, 2013, 1:55 AM EST.
Im trying to get over is Lucy really gone… things were just starting to look up for her, between her and mikey… Ive read this all the way from the beggining and i feel sad every time i come back for an update hoping that its all just gonna be some bad dream sequence… She was the “life” of the comic despite her rough edges… I just dont know what to think
Bruskedragon August 6, 2013, 2:10 AM EST.
I can agree with that, however, as I said a couple pages back. If he’s getting chummy with another girl, it’s none of her business. I don’t know maybe she has some sort of odd set of rules that says that a guy can’t immediately go to someone else after a break up or maybe she hoped that Paulo would crash and burn so she could get back with him later. But my point is that she knew he wanted to get with someone else, so seeing him with someone else shouldn’t have surprised her and she should have already prepped herself to stay out of his business.
Not really, the life of the comic was Lucy AND Mike. This might be cold to say, however it might be for the best that she takes a step out of the picture (she’s not gone by the way, she’s just left). There’s a lot of characters who can’t get any development because all the focus is on the relationship between Mike and Lucy. I mean, what happened to David’s flower girl, how’s Abbey’s therapy going, what about the other characters? we can’t get any development for them because Lucy or Mike’s problems (mostly Lucy’s, that girl is an entire storehouse of problems) always takes center stage and leaves the other characters as just plot devices when they are supposed to be main cast.
buchanen_neket August 6, 2013, 2:31 AM EST.
Unless Abbey magically turns his **** 180° around on the next page, then he’s gonna end up just like his father so no surprises there.
No-one gives a **** about Flower Girl, and David is a dime-a-dozen comic relief that’s actually only serving as a annoyance to the readers, except those who hasn’t hit puberty yet.
The only interesting bit going on is the shitstorm between Mike & Lucy, but it’s been incredibly dragged out its unbelievable.
Mike’s rightful trip to the breaking wheel has been postponed for too long, and there’s constant cockteases of **** finally progressing on that front.
So when is this **** getting down to the actual business again?
Foral August 6, 2013, 4:10 AM EST.
What do you guys want to see, then? I don’t even understand if there’s a popular sentiment here. Resolve Mike x Lucy immediately, but don’t show any more Lucy? But tell us what happened to Lucy?

But really? You guys can’t get rid of Lucy, she’s so adorable! And her and Mike don’t need to fight all the time to make BCB fun. Lucy can be mean to others & that’s fun too!
5Cats August 6, 2013, 5:04 AM EST.
This is my personal opinion, but i’d prefer to see more development for characters that have Main cast status (Daisy, Abbey, Augustus [not really main cast, but he has a key story going on], or I don’t know, THE FORESHADOWED GANG ATTACK).
But I think the popular sentiment is to see a resolution to MxL, but it seems they want a biased resolution (namely that Mike suffers a fate worse than death for standing up to poor wittle lucy, that last part is from my personal feelings on the matter).
But I know all this amounts to nil as doesn’t Taeshi have the story preplanned.

Would I be correct if I were to make those assumptions? Or perhaps you have been known to place irons in the fire, but no more? Cue me in if you understand jack **** of what I’m alluding to because my brain is stuck in places now. You might say I’ve been in an irreversible accident, in a sense.
Anyways, done with making an *** of myself, this page.
@boh… <== this guy said it here: “jasmine may have been a bit spiteful but I think it’s because he saw him fooling around with rachel even though he broke up with jasmine because he loved lucy (and she knows it’s lucy. remember the play?).”
This is why he is immature and why Jasmine is justified in her

celeho August 6, 2013, 12:02 PM EST.
I can’t speak for everyone else nor will I attempt to (that’s the President’s job…sort of), but I can say what I personally think.
Right now, I am not really big into any pairing between characters and if it’s Mike and Lucy or Jess and Lucy that’s fine.
However, it appears to me that the tensions between Lucy and Mike, and Lucy specifically as a person has been ratchet up so much that it seems somewhat anti-climatic to have her suddenly disappear with no real explanation.
Also, it seems like Lucy has been suffering a lot through the previous chapters and even if the other characters are suffering, such as Paulo, they all seem to have someone or something to fall back on. The image I see so far is that Lucy is in Hell and has nothing to support her.
It would be nice to see her receive some light in the darkness she seems to be swallowed up in and can’t get out of, despite her own attempts. In a way some of this might be just, but I think she’s been dragged through the dirt enough.
Whether she finds her own strength or something to give her that strength, it would be nice for once to see her on her feet, instead of constantly falling on her knees.
Essentially, for me, I’d like it if Lucy would still make appearances, even if it’s not with the gang, so I and others who might think similarly can know what’s going on with her. Heavy characters like her can be difficult to keep off one’s mind.
I do know or recall the author saying there was an entier plot laid out for this, so I respect that and will continue to read to see where this is all heading. Even so, you have two of my cents. Buy a candy bar with it or give it to a begging man, lol, don’t matter to me.
