Author commentary

Veronica: The character in panel five is meant to be a mock and a character of my own, actually. Her name was “Aqua,” but she was originally an altered form of Lucy from my ollllld side story comic. A comic none of you will ever be able to see! Ever! Seriously, it’s anime-central, you aren’t missing much.

McCain is too used to being shoved into the background to understand the concept of taking some spotlight, poor guy. He’s the creation of Matrixx. Whoosh!

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.

McCain is probably my favorite character now. I know his style pretty well. Say something and then just blend in. It’s pretty funny when people don’t even notice you saying stuff too though. You can just be like, ” I’m going to hit you so hard in the face that teeth will come out of your ***” and the other people are all, “that’s great man”.

McCain reminds me a great deal of Shino out of Naruto…blending in, the dark glasses, and when he speaks - people listen haha

I think that panel 14 should be accompanied by a bunch of people saying “Spotlight!” while giving jazz hands. It fits.

I was explaining McCain to my friends and they thought that he just walked past and as he passed someone’s ear he stops time to say extremely long things.

Rucy-chan and Lucy exist at the same time. And that is awesome. Side-comic or not.

People need to stop being so mean to him. He’s just trying to help with his words of wisdom, stop griping at him. At least Sue gives him a chance. McCain is awsome, bring on more of him.

McCain: Sue, I believe I’m experiencing an increasing fandom!

Sue: Whoa, what does THAT feel like?

McCain: It sorta tingles.
