Author commentary

Veronica: Probably one of the hardest pages I had to draw.. and not just because of that complicated final panel in which I try very very hard to draw a proper background! It’s not often we see noticeable backgrounds here!

The more I talk about this, the more embarrassed I feel because there’s something oddly personal about it.. so I’m just gonna stop here.

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.

I don’t have a problem with the divided panels there cause I’m guessing it’s inner exaggeration vs. reality there. I DO, however wonder why psychologists share a building with an ophthalmologist and a cricket!
