Simple Pleasures — Page 1

Author commentary

Veronica: To all newcomers, welcome! I hope you enjoy your stay.

You may want to note that this chapter is a 2009-era redraw version of a 2006 original. While you’ll see the art revert back to older standards in a few pages, it’s all made to flow together, so just keep reading.

Let’s start the show!

A preview of the upcoming BCB page.

This really is a much better chapter than “Unfulfilled Day.” Good job! Bow-less Lucy looks odd imo.

Looks awesome. :D

But of course the classic other “Unfulfilled Day” has its own special feel. Just like how I heard on tv today, “Classics never get old.”

@Bulk Candy Man: Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, Spammity-spam, wonderful spam!

(seriously, putting an ad for a candy company on the first page of the comic, it’s too obvious not to say this!)

A good start to an amazing webcomic.

We never really saw much of Jordan, did we?

@anonymous (2 above me)
Most of the characters are drawn without clothes, with the exception of a few accessories such as Lucy’s bow, Mike’s Scarf, Daisy’s necklace etc. Some characters though have regular clothing, such as the later introduced McCain, Jessica, Rachel, and that one creepy guy that followed Daisy around.

Oh, as a rule, whenever they go to the beach or somewhere formal, they will usually be given clothing.

nice, your comic strip.
I just wanted to know where you can find your comic download (to carry it with me).
and also where I could see the old version of “Simple Pleasures” and “confrontation” just out of curiosity.

sorry if there are problems in what I say. because I use google tradution.

this continues like this, I’m fallen in love with your comics. 8-D

/original version/

sympa, ta bande dessinée.
je voulais juste savoir ou l’on peut trouver ta bande dessinée en téléchargement ( pour l’avoir toujours sur moi ).
et aussi ou je pourrais voir l’ancienne version de “Simple Pleasures” et de “confrontation” juste par curiosité.

désolé si il y a des problème dans ce que je dis. c’est parce que j’utilise google tradution.

voilà, continue comme ca, j’suis tombé amoureux de ton comics. 8-D

So I came back here after reading up to the latest chapter (70) and I saw the crack on the picture and I was like “WHOA THAT’S SOME MAJOR FORESHADOWING THERE”

Just knowing at the very beginning where the story is headed in about 70 chapters is pretty mind-blowing.

Comment ID #261979

I have read through this entire comic about twice now and I am still enjoying it. I really enjoy the way this comic is heading with all the relationships and drama, but I enjoyed the comic more when it first started. I enjoyed the simple adventures and gradual story progression along with the emotional moments the characters had every few chapters. There are some other things I do not like about the newer entries in the comic. I enjoyed the old coloring style much more than the new one and the old character design (such as Lucy’s rounder head) is also better in my opinion. Anyway I will still read and love this comic. I hope this comic continues for a long time. I really support this comic and can’t wait for the new entries. :D
