Author commentary

Veronica: You thought Lucy let go of that Sandy incident easily? I don’t blame her, it’s weird that Mike parades around as a single guy when it’s obvious he has his heart set out for a girl super far away. In a way, it’s like an emotional girlfriend.

Don’t miss a thing!

The entire comic David has been my least favorite character in the comic. Now, with that one panel, he’s my favorite second only to Yashy.

And on that note: Epic girlfriend fail

You know, I read this once before, and something like that happened recently, (speaking about Mike and Lucy) and I snuck up behind the two friends that were were Mike and Tess were, and just screamed “AAAAWKWARD!” as almost loud as I could.

Wow, that was fast. We’re already back on Sandy. Good, cause I’m looking forward to that! :D

Can you give Paulo more of a personality rather than just being a womanizing *******? Come on, after Confrontation, I was super interested in him, with the dog barking trauma and what not.

Luce, for the love of all that is mortal, chill! Back off and give Mike some room to breath, try to sympathize with his situation. I can see why future defenders of Mike, well, defend him.
