Bittersweet Candy Bowl

“Date Night.”

Chapter 118, page 1 of 24. Posted 1/25/23.

Welcome to Bittersweet Candy Bowl, a comic about love, cats and high school drama.

New to Roseville High? We made a special page just for you!

Date Night — Page 1

Author commentary

Veronica: HELLOOOOOOOOOOO and welcome to the next chapter!!

I had a lot of fun making this one. We are going STRAIGHT TO THE DATE!!! WHOA!! Will Paulo and the group crash James and Mike’s big night out? Will Mike break up with Sandy? Will James get extra butter on his popcorn? You’ll have to read to find out!!

.. at one day a week!!!!


Souppy has written a good summary of our CURRENT STATE OF AFFAIRS in the news post, but I am very sorry for this tragic news. I feel like this past.. couple of years after dedicating so much time to the omnibus, I have just never been able to fully catch up. And we have some stuff we want to announce, but it just feels bad having to do all of it in a rush.

So we are gonna update once a week for at least this chapter, maybe more. When you wake up to make a page, go to sleep having made a page and repeat the same process over and over for weeks on end, the days just start blurring together and I want a break from that.

Anyway enough sob story excuses since I feel quite terrible about it. In better news this chapter owns and it’s the best chapter to start with the new schedule because EVERY PAGE WILL KEEP YOU GUESSING!!! Hahahah!!!

ALSO we are gonna have the “February” stream this Friday! Because we won’t be free to do the stream in actual February! More posts to come about that on the BCB Patreon.

So in short: next update is Monday, patrons are always a page ahead, and we are doing a stream this Friday at 1pm! Thank you all!

One update a week… for a little while!

January 25, 2023

Bittersweet Candy Bowl will update only on Mondays (at 1 PM EST) for the time being, instead of three days a week. Just for a chapter or two.

Why? We’re a little overwhelmed and need to take a breather. We have plans — and new things to show you — later in 2023, but we don’t want to do everything in a rush. We don’t want to post another BCI alternate reality chapter as ”filler“ for the site, especially when this one feels so perfectly suited to one-day-a-week. So we’re going with one day a week, to allow us to be thoughtful about those things instead of rushing chapters out.

We hope long-time readers are understanding. We do try hard to keep up with our update schedule, but if the comic is going to suffer for it, we’ll come up with a temporary solution. This time, the solution is giving up on three days a week, for a short while.

For our patrons, we do appreciate you guys a ton, and hope you can stick it out with us. For our Club members, we will be sharing a new member-exclusive comic with you really soon!

Thanks, everyone, for sticking through it with us!
