That bloke doesn’t look too enthralled by Paulo’s lame insult. I like how he slowly backs away after he notices.

You learn so you don’t act like an idiot.

This is exactly why you didn’t get invited Paulo =P You’ll be the bigger loser when you get a bad grade!

That man doesn’t seem to like Paulo very much. What has he done to deserve this treatment?!
Well, besides like, everything he’s done in this chapter so far..

Mike’s always jumping from happy to angry at a moment’s notice.

I guess Jasmine had a point when she pointed out Paulo’s immaturity.

God the art on this page is gorgeous!

Also I don’t think mike is “jumping from happy to angry” - Paulo is being pretty obnoxious. If you aren’t his best friend, or Lucy, Paulo can be pretty annoying to be around for a long period of time I imagine XD

Post-Impressions? Illusions? New Exhibits? That doesn’t sounds very lame at all! Paul0, you’re missing out!
…huh. I just realized. I don’t care about him! :D
…now watch as he gets to see something more interesting. :/

Paulo’s future will probably involve saying “Would you like fries with that?” and paying child support.

Really Paulo? Do you really think that?. Well after all, he is Paulo….

eagle September 30, 2013, 2:21 PM EST.

Comment ID #260618

Haha, look at dat Mike scowl on panel 6! It’s the kind of look someone makes when they need to get laid. He probably wished his darling Paulo would share his same enthusiasm about the Illusions exhibit, and it’s like they say…”Hell hath no fury like a scarf-wearing man scorned.”

Dat adult stare on the last few panels, though. Damn…it’s like he’s shooting laser beams through Paulo’s forehead. Also, I really like the expression done on Paulo’s face on panel 5. I especially love how the eyes are done, the slight rise of his cheeks, the brows, and the toothy “what an idiot!” smile/smirk/grin he’s got going on. Put it altogether and you get “I enjoy tormenting Mike because he’s so girly!”.

Seriously though Mike, you have to mount up a bit and show Paulo what’s what. Catch him off guard when he least expects it, maybe in the lockers room, and then slowly close in on him with devious green eyes for a kiss…hahaha, shoot me now!

you guys are being a bit mean to paulo! i understand he’s been a bit sour recently, but what with lucy leaving he might just be taking it hard.. he has every right to considering he was so close to confessing his feelings for her! and even so, although it was a silly comment, he doesn’t have to like the things the rest of the gang does, and to be honest, i think he just made the comment because he’s hurt that he wasn’t invited :-/

Actually the adult is probably a college student/graduate and was pretty miffed about how Paulo’s line can be applied to all college students.

To think he once was a pretty focused student when he stopped looking at girls…then he got together with Jasmine

Remember when I said Paulo can’t catch a break? Maybe because he used up all of his breaks is why he can catch one. :|

Amaya wrote it down to them on a napkin or something. More than one way to communicate, besides vocalization 8-)

Comment ID #260630

Welp, you can definitely tell Paulo will be one of those people (or cats in his case) that will probably drop out at some point in high school, and will probably regret doing that in oh say, 5-8 years? Then it will be the smarties who’ll have the last laugh. :D

Ironically, Paulo’s paying to learn at school….. 8-)

Paulo bit his cheek in that last panel, it looks like he’s chewing gum.

Why the hate? Tons of people I know would say that, they don’t like extra work. Not everyone takes education seriously, doesn’t mean you have to hate on them for it.

Poor misinformed Paulo, you could have broadened your mind, same goes for his father, though it’s never too late for education. :(

Hawz September 30, 2013, 4:40 PM EST.

Comment ID #260633

Once again, Paulo being his usual ******* self. People are friends with him…why exactly? Aside from being nice to certain girls (Lucy, Daisy and Jasmine) he’s a dick to EVERYONE.

Dee September 30, 2013, 4:40 PM EST.

Comment ID #260634

Here’s my thing… it’s not related to the above comic.
I really love this comic, and I’ve read it since I was a freshmen in highschool. But… I feel really sad thinking I’m really missing 25% of the comic as stated by the ad to join as an international member. For me, 39$ is really pricey to read a comic and I feel like I’m missing out on some of the best parts. I totally understand Taeshi needs to make money and bring home the bacon, but…. Idk, it’d be nice if the stuff was available to really loyal readers. Anyways, sorry for whining…. I mostly want to see what’s up with Lucy… anyways, yeah.
((Taeshi, if you want to email me, I’m my name at gmail.))

Why is almost everyone saying bad stuff about Paulo? Not everyone likes school. My dad had a C or D average, and he makes about 2,000 dollars a month. No one should just assume that he’ll be working fast food or something.

Bluesky,

The idea behind Amaya is that WE never see her speak, not that she’s a mute. When a character says Amaya said, it means it’s always off camera that she said something.

How ironic would it be if David got a ticket?

It’s official. Mike is now the spitting image of Discord Whooves.

I'll Eat Yourself September 30, 2013, 5:43 PM EST.

Comment ID #260641

Is anyone else thinking that Paulo is upset because he can’t afford the ticket?

@ J.ninja13
BCI is actually a bunch of extra comics, almost all of which are non-canon. They focus a lot on character personalities and alternate histories (which are very entertaining, but you don’t strictly need them for the larger story). BCI isn’t like some “premium” webcomics that post new pages quicker for paying members. Everyone here will find out about Lucy’s eventual fate at the same time.

I’m starting to see Paulo slowly being phased out of the group… like someone else. I can already see the direct of where this MIGHT be going. :3

Mikes pupils have gone from giant to tiny every other panel in this chapter… Don’t his eyes get sore?

Misanthrope September 30, 2013, 7:22 PM EST.

Comment ID #260650

You know, the people around here (the museum, not the comments) are pretty mean. First, someone pushes Paulo, now he’s being stared down. It’s almost like Paulo is being targeted. :(

What if museums target people who act ignorant towards learning, like Paulo? What if all ignorant people are targeted in the world? IT’S A CONSPIRACY! D:

Jokes aside, does anyone realize that if that white dot on Mike’s eye was gone, Mike’s eyes would be exactly like dead-inside Lucy’s? The only difference would be that Mike has green eyes instead of blue.

@The_Nameless_One: The BCB-Bond is watching him like this: The BCB-Bond may or may not be Abbey.

Abbey’s smile in the first panel reminds me of Lucy, it has me concerned. Yet another possibility as to what the “Critical Hit,” may be.

@Pyro: Wouldn’t that lead to an even MORE depressing ending than, “Breaking up?”

@Sanchan: No, that was just a joke. He kinda stalks this flower girl. You know, from that one emoticon next to Abbey ( #^_^#). She’s from the first 47 chapters that I didn’t realize existed until I bought Volume One.

Anyways, I can’t wait to have our minds broadened Taeshi!

Comment ID #260651

@Misanthrope: Do your pupils hurt when they expand and contract repeatedly?

The correct answer is no, because pupils are holes, they have no ability to feel pain as a result and because pupils increase and decrease instinctively to changes of light level, feeling pain for your eyes adjusting to the light level would not be beneficial. So we don’t.

Soooo….. I guess either David is the one to deliver the meaning of this arc to Paulo, Paulo’s going to sneak in, or it’ll be some other character that gets to teach him a lesson…

…. or maybe I’m reading to much into things?

Huh? September 30, 2013, 7:53 PM EST.

Oh Paulo, I’d laugh at them too. I don’t like museums much so why would I spend money on an exhibition in one? I’d die of boredom.

Supah Late Comment Time:
@HenryWang: A financial problem indeed.

@guuuuurl: Does the title, “Critical Hit” not convince you that something important will happen?

@Stevum: Not money, tickets. Blue money would certainly be easier to look at. American currency is so boring to look at compared to cash from anywhere else.

Sorry, but i´m with Paulo on this, such things are boring as ****, and those stpid things that often is shown as “art” on there is mostly just stupid junk and i would never pay for that either :D
