dibs: hahahahaha lucy loves herself :-[

I can see that, they both got the huge eyes. I always thought they were insanely similar, which is why I tried to change them up in later “design”.. that was definitely one of the hugest faults in the old comic. You can only tell who it is if you can spot the accessory!

And now that I look closely that actually you can tell it’s Mike because mike has like line eyebrows while, Lucy on the other hand has that little curve at the end of her eye brow. Good Job on differentiation on their faces.

I know it’s super late to point this out now, and I really don’t want to ruin the moment (this is one of my favorite pages!). However, I just noticed that Mike is talking to Lucy’s left ear. Isn’t that ear deaf?

her love for him is so strong that she can hear his words through anything..

I’d assume Mike would probably talk a bit louder to her :-[ but yeah i have a terrible habit of drawing the male on the wrong side. It’s only recent that I’ve been trying to be conscious about it.

Panel nine is the best. Her face is just like: “Whuuuh?”

wait… in grass? you mean on grass…

Well technically, Mike is on the correct side, as gentlemen are meant to escort ladies on their left, so they can draw their swords.

Was that an Abbey or McCain moment?

Nay good, sir. Don’t walk IN grass. You can walk ON it just as long as the blades don’t reach over your foot XD.

And I’m back to hating Lucy again… I swear some day Mike is gonna run out of patience with her.

^If this page is all it took to go back to hating Lucy, you have a pathetically immature opinion process. :/

Taeshi, He spoke into her deaf ear :/

@goodburger The perspective is backwards, he is on her left side. Then again, out of the two to draw swords, Lucy would probably go before Mike… :unsure:

This is ironic. Mike has been making appeals like this to Lucy, who is too insecure to go with a simple “yes”. Now, as in the future, she’s regretting all of the chances she skipped out on that Mike gave. It makes more sense reading these previous chapters why Mike is so indifferent towards Lucy. Maybe he’s just tired of the games.

@Taeshi did you know that the tradition of men escorting women on the left side dates back to the *ahem* chamberpot days…. because people threw its comtents out the window and… well dont think too hard about what could happen afterwards.
