He’s like one of those guys who always gets picked on because he’s awesome. But he also gets just about any girl he wants. Although… he never scores because he’s just not into that mindset.

Hmmm… from the description, I’d say he’s a fox… probably a fennec, but I haven’t seen his tail, so I’m not sure :( yes, I’m a nerd too

I was on another website that had a banner for this comic with Abbey going “Daisy, if I had to choose between breathing and loving you, I’d use my last breath to say ‘i love you’” and thought they were ridiculously cute and decided to read the comic, so I’ve been waiting for the entire comic for Abbey to show up and get with Daisy. I love his gigantic ears :3 Wish I had an Abbey in real life >>

Maaaan, Abbey looks soooo different now. He’s really better nowadays.

Though I loved his ears when they weren’t always bent down.
And I miss the verbose vocabulary too.
Guess it was too troublesome to write his lines…

Hah! Abbey has the dame poor choice of diction that i do. We seem to share some traits, but this is his first appearance so idk.

Comment ID #160625

Oh my god oh my god oh my god no friggen way!!!!!
Abbey is basically me in a nutshell! He’s been in one comic so far and already my fav character ^_^

ZyferWulf May 10, 2011, 2:22 AM EST.

Comment ID #161376

Eh…Abbey looks boring to me. Hope he becomes more interesting.

You know…You could’ve had Paulo be the one to help Daisy up instead. Again, you really need to flesh him out more. I can’t forget Confrontation…That was just the best part of the whole series so far. Paulo is the best, right behind Mike and Lucy.

I don’t really like Tess too much either…I mean, she’s okay, but she just seems unnecessary to me, just like Abbey does.

I realize you plan to have everybody end up with another person, like Abbey/Daisy, Tess/Paulo, David/******, etc, but for the time being, I want more Paulo back story and less new characters. That’s all.

Irony. Seeing women only as something to have pleasure with and conquest is even more primitive than the things Paulo is poking fun at.

Hoheh July 12, 2011, 10:25 PM EST.

Comment ID #174241

paulo suggests he is not the one with the primitive beliefs, yet he doesn’t think of women as anything more than walking sex toys.

hypocrite, much?

frankly, i’d like to gut paulo and use him as a bag to carry trash in.

Abbey’s speech patterns do seem very reminiscent of those of Medieval and Renaissance times.

I know this makes me sound a bit stupid, but while i was re-reading this, i came to a question ive been wondering throughout the whole comic, is abbey a dog or cat??? ive seen lots of cats with ears that huge that perk up at times, but hang down alot. the same with a few dogs. So, which is it???

ConfusedGirl July 16, 2012, 10:25 PM EST.

Comment ID #223080

And here is the introduction of a character who gets in the way of my intense Paulo/Daisy shipping. :< It’s not fair for me to dislike him immediately and I’m gonna try to keep an open mind about him as I read on… BUT STOP GETTING IN THE WAY OF PAULO/DAISY, DAMN IT.

*paulo was killed by abbey wielding ak-74*
(p.s. a ak-74 is a real weapon but it is less known then it’s counter part a Ak-47 one of the best known guns)
