Veronica: Here it is! A complete rewrite of the old “Confrontation” chapter in a newer style. I’ve tried to adjust the characters to fit in with the older stuff, though.

A preview of the upcoming BCB page.

Oh, I’ve realised that a long long time ago, so I wanted to have that changed! My goal was to get the first chapter and Confrontation dealt with when the site was gonna relaunch :O

I’ve always liked “Confrontaion”, and I’m glad your remaking it! :D It’s seems more up-to-date when people remake shtuff. xD

I ADORE that last panel with naughty Daisy and Paulo (kinda a shame they didnt get it together but Abby is a great guy)

I also like the crosshatching and backgrounds : ) gives it more atmosphere

where the hell is sue?!just noticed…

also I think I may like the older version mor ebcause it has more of the typical daisy blaming herself for other peoples mistakes

this one seems like it may have gotten the emotion and social stand points of some of the newer chapters

Oh wow! :D
cool new coloring/shading style!

Seadogs- in the old version- it WAS Daisy’s fault, though! And Lucy was just being a huge bitch, i thought I should make their fight more fair so I had Mike be the sugestor to take the train. The remake doesn’t follow the original 100%, there are changes.

Don’t replace it! Whatever you do, don’t replace the old one!

Although this may be an updated version, the old version is still just as important! At least keep it on the site some place, losing the original one would be losing part of BCB and it’s history (and I really liked that chapter :,c)

Xetch- the original will stay on the site, it’ll just be in “graveyard” with the original first chapter, and all other “canned old chapters”

I never fully delete man ;__; come awn

Believe it or not, I prefer the previous art style. Sure, the new one has more details but the simplistic and impulsive style of the previous one made it more cute and warm. Anyway, it’s just my opinion, so I won’t grump anymore about it. And now that I think about it, it’s good to make improvements instead of sticking into one style forever.

By the way, I’m a new fan of your web comic. Such a shame I haven’t discovered it earlier. I prefer it from some other, more famous, overrated webcomics. Keep your great job! :3

Paulo and Daisy are in their happy places.

Comment ID #95965

Paulo and Daisy should team up, that way both their dreams would be realized and everyone would be happy.

Except david. What’re we gonna do ‘bout him?

Confrontation is my favourite chapter so far in the series. Not for art style or anything, but the story is amazing.

@steve, i don’t think taeshi changed the art style cause of criticism. art style changes as the artist improves their skills. two cases in point “dominic deegan: oracle for hire” and “megatokyo” both artist had different art styles when they started their comics, but slowly but surely their style changed as they learned new techniques. and if u don’t believe me read those webcomics and you’ll see, DD can be found under the site “dominic-deegan.com” and megatokyo is well “megatokyo.com” the reason this comic was redone in new style was probably because taeshi had an idea on how to change the past work but had to use the new style of art cause the old style was forgotten. sorry for the site plug anyone who takes offense.

@Smirker: I totally agree, i don’t think mike would be very happy with Lucy shes too insensitive and insecure for him, daisy on the other hand would make a great match. and i think Paulo and Lucy could get along for reasons I’m not stating (insert spoiler here)

@Strider: You’re right man. This is my first time reading through, but this style, in contrast to the older one, is kinda nice. Detailed, but still sorta scruffy! <3

Well, I’ll admit, the art is much better than the older versions, but they’re all still enjoyable. I got hooked on these comics after one hour ^w^

Mike flat out states his growing frustration and hatred for Lucy’s behaviour…

Yet {insert spoiler here} comes as a complete shock later on, somehow…

Seriously… Fine line between just belligerent tension worthy of shipping (eg: genuine frustration born out of only not being able to express true feelings,) and flat out abuse (eg: genuine frustration born out of blah blah blah, and taking it out on your sacrificing partner to the point that it harms him.). Someone on this train is pretty guilty of the second… And I’m looking at you, Lucy.

I just wanna say, i’ve started reading this comic and i love it, but this one chapter messed with me…but what *exactly* happened to Lucy? Idk if saying it specifically would get me banned but…when she was getting…slapped, was that it? Just slapping, right?
