Veronica: Parents? In my comic? *Hit*

Yeah, isn’t it weird that this comic is meant to be revolved around young teenagers going to school yet we haven’t seen the parents play ANY part in their upbringing? I really haven’t had a need to focus on the parents.. but it’s not like the characters are living alone at home. WE ARE NOT IN AN ANIME

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!

Now I really feel sorry for Mike… as if this day wasn’t hard enough on him already.
And knowing that Sandy still remembers probably won’t make it easier on him from now on.

Poor Mike :(

Yes, Critic Criticism, it is very very cute. Poor Maishul.

also… the last panel breaks my heart. Lucy was really nice throughout this comic… and she is compensated like this?
The irony.

Oh, yeah, Mike’s mom is gorgeous!

A bonsai tree? I guess Sandy IS Japanese. I love reading the entire series again. I always find stuff that I’ve never noticed (Or have but never knew what it meant) before. Memories :) sweet memories

I actually am really happily surprised to see a parent appear. I’ve never really liked the “Slice of life” comics, anime or manga that never show a single parent, but do show thirty thirteen year olds.

Oh gosh I want to kill you now. You added a twist to the cliche. And it’s so heartbreaking that it tortures me. YOU DEMON. Even so, I will read on. Because I AM A MAN AND I CAN TAKE THE DEMONIC TORTURE JUST BECAUSE THIS IS A FANTASTIC ROMANCE IF I EVER SAW ONE!! AND DANG YOU PAULO STOP SHOWING UP IN THAT DANG “WHO’S THAT?” THING DOWN THERE!! Can you PLEASE add more characters to that thing? All I’m getting are PAULO, Lucy, and occasionally Mike, and even though it’s not some contest, constantly typing their names gets annoying.
