Author commentary

Veronica: Hello and welcome to the long-awaited return of this comic series! The characters are still in Summer vacation, late July in fact! This will be a very lengthy arc, about four chapters in total. Here is the first!

As you may have noticed, this chapter is completely in proper panels! This will become normal for upcoming chapters so updates might take a little longer than when I used to be consistent.. but hey, quality over quantity right? Even though there is still loads of quantity, twenty pages!

Tess is a traditional girl who resorts to writing serious business letter. Come on, I’m sure some of you still get written invitations!

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.

Why’d Sue get invited? I guess we need someone to shove into the background…but in that case WHY NOT BRING MCCAIN ALONG FOR NO APPARENT REASON?

I must say, the “proper paneling” is flippin tight! Looks very well done; nice job.

Why is there a cat sleeping on the table? They actually have normal, non-anthro cats?

I mean, I saw that kitten way, way back when they were still in Middle school. You know, in that alleyway in Masachiro or whatever.

David is tall…it’s just that his mother is WAY taller than he is.

Anyway, this looks interesting. So they’re going to a beach during summer? I can’t wait to see where this leads… :D

This has inspired me! I shall be making my OWN comic with story arcs here and there. It is about three dorm mates and one stuffed cat in a boarding school. It shall be called “Board Stupid”. And no, this is NOT advertisement. I just would like to let you know that…this girl inspired me. If your asking about the stuffed cat, his name is Austin, he is owned by one guy, and I got the idea when reading VG cats while Invader Zim was on. He is a mix of Leo and Gir.

David is curious, Paulo is reading it intensely; Daisy, less so; Mike (Mike *sigh*); Kitsuna has no idea what’s going on; Sue looks massively worried; Abbey, idunno; and finally, Lucy looks very cynical and skeptical.

:question:how dos tess have a pet cat is that even posible is their like split race of cads and dogs and cat and dog people ? or maybe its at a evalutionary stand point like how humans are desendant from prime apes but their are still prime apes like gorillas and chimps running around

Although, a proper buisiness letter beginning with “to whom it may concern” ends with “yours faithfully”, not “yours sincerely”
