Author commentary

Veronica: And that’s the end of that! Silly tsundere Lucy YOU BASICALLY WROTE YOUR FUTURE NOW.

And doesn’t that feel better. This is the last of the big chapter rewrites. We worked on fixing mistakes in the next few chapters when preparing the book, but overall things will just keep on truckin’ from hereon. See how I slowly get better at drawing things.

We want to email you some comics!

Join the thousands of BCB fans who look forward to an email of cat drama every Monday morning, and we’ll send you a dozen “Ships Ahoy” comic strips, and one every week after that!

We’ll send a link to the comics you missed, straight away.

Reading through all of these comics again I realized two things.

1. You know how to keep me addicted to this comic.
2. This version is much darker and sweater.

I had tears in my eyes during the part where the thug was hitting Lucy. The end also almost brought me to tears because it was so sweet ^^,.

Lucy was hit several times so that’s why her face is deformed in that panel! That’s my story and I’m stickin to it Furious Abbey *slapped*

@bored as hell
Dude!Do you know where cats use their tongues!?

Anyway,I think that,as the current situation with Mike an Lucy is,(40 some chapters later) he should think about this moment and wonder,did he mean all that he said in Acupulco?

I’ve had to contemplate this arc for a couple days. You’ve shown me my own lingering childhood misconceptions of heroism and it took a little while to swallow.

I always had this idea that heroism was to impress chicks and that the point was to mitigate loss.

Thank you for helping me to understand where I was wrong.

Comment ID #170800

Gotta say…

60-some chapters later, this is still my favorite one. It’s one of the things that got me on the MikexLucy bandwagon.


A tsundere is a character (usually a girl) who alternates between irritable and lovestruck moods, and usually displays the former more than the latter.

Why doesn’t Mike seem to remember this part? Lucy didn’t always treat him right but she was there for him and everyone else in this chapter. This is why Mike is steadily becoming my least favorite character
