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.

Don’t miss a thing!

Every Monday morning, we send thousands of BCB fans a week of pages, a note from the two of us and a shippy comic strip celebrating a random pairing of characters.

We’ll put the link your inbox 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!

Hey, the numbers are 1223? And Jiminey Cricket. I wonder why I am the first commenter to notice the numbers.
