Veronica: Cute Couple wants to Battle is something only the coolest Pokemon trainers will understand.

The bubble-placement in panel four is even more awkward than the others, Daisy is meant to be the one saying “Hee hee, oh right!” and Abbey is saying the second line. His bubble is meant to go behind Daisy’s.. hence the weird spike coming out and pointing to Abbey, my bad.

We want to email you some comics!

I love daisy and Abbey’s faces in the last panel. Abbey’s all like “STILL THINKING WITH THAT PERVERTED MIND??” And Daisy almost makes the face of, “How did he find that out too??”

I loved the pseudo-pokemon reference. Or at least, what I think is one.

God damnit, dog-whose-name-I-can’t-remember, you’re my favorite.

Does Paulo’s mind work on hormones? Why does he ALWAYS jump to the wrong conclusion?

Look, McCain is living out his secret shameful fantasy of being the plush doll sized love toy of a stern but affectionate Mexican *******, OK?

And LOL, Paulo. A lifelong habit of saying whatever the heck pops into your head is really coming home to roost!
