Author commentary

Veronica: The whole Daisy-Tess study session is cut into another scene on panel eight, for those wondering.. I can so imagine it more visually.. but Tess is thinking at the top.. the scene just moves to the next day when the characters are at lunch. Sorry if it looks confusing! Wauughh.

Daisy has favorites as a tutor, too! Also this is such an amusing personality trait of hers.. the fact that she’s so innocently blunt.. she doesn’t really know she’s being offensive.. Daisy doesn’t mean it.

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.

Lebenschraum? First, I think it’s lebensraum… Second, it means living space, or a creature’s surroundings. (Deer-Wood, Shark-Water) I found this on wiki… here, see for yourself if you like ^^

@Apo07: Wenn Du’s unbedingt wissen willst: Ja, ich. Und ich vermute, dass es mindestens noch einen gibt, denn die bisherigen Comics wurden gelegentlich von einem “Jürgen” kommentiert. Und da die Amis, Engländer, usw. keine Umlaute auf der Tastatur haben…

Und noch zum Comic: Die Schreibweise mit “sch” war schmerzhaft anzusehen ;) Aber wundert mich echt, wie viele hier damit nix anfangen können.

(Just answering Apo07… nothing for you english-speakers :) )

Willy was a chemist,
But now he is no more,
What he thought was H2O was H2SO4!

Germany is the Fatherland, Russia is the Motherland, and Prussia, Czechoslovakia, Romania, and Transylvania are the Kinderlands.
Woo 11:00 nerdiness, I’m on a roll! Or a muffin, I can’t tell.

Hit the ball out of the park with that last line there. “Not an idiot, just lazy”. I always see kids as either motivated or not motivated. Never smart or dumb. It all makes sense when you think about it. Of course there is the rare occurrence of somebody gifted and full of talent and that makes them smart, but most of the time it is a matter of motivation.
Really a cool comic, very fun to read and it practically forces me to keep going!
