Honestly, I did not notice the typo until I read the comments. It does not detract from the story or mood in any way (personally, at least), so I’m not convinced that it merits editing.

Give Paulo a second tail and he may just become my favorite char, what with the changes in his character and how much he looks like Tails.

So I hope this posts, but I’ve read all the archives for the first time starting yesterday and coming up to this point today. I haven’t really liked mike since the beginning, and have totally been rooting for Paulo. This has got to be my favorite page so far. I love how Paulo would go whip Mikes self-righteous *** if Lucy hadn’t stopped him.

@ Skykitsune: Oi! That fool looks nothing like Tails! Tails is far more awesome than him! …And smarter!
…Seriously, his IQ? I think it’s OVER 9000!

omg the invadsion of the cone head is here, there is quiet a few so called “cone heads” at the begining of the page.
the last panel sure gave mike+lucy fans some hard time, i know cause i am one

Lucy should be flattered that Paulo would be willing to pick a fight for her. In fact, I genuinely wonder who would win in a fight: Mike or Paulo. Mike is strong, but I think Paulo is more willing to get loose and go feral. As long as dogs aren’t close by to start barking and cause him to go into a frenzy.

That last panel…Hopes are rising…

paulo still blames mike even though lucy said it was her fault?

you need to stop dating abusive men and draw a proper comic.

Oh. And then again, maybe Paulo has no idea what he’s doing.

You were doing good there for a while, P.

@NintendoSegaSonyGuy: “Going feral” isn’t always to your advantage. Sure, berserkers are intimidating, especially if they have the muscle to back up their wild fighting style, but a more skilled fighter (like, say, Mike, who takes martial arts classes according to Taeshi, or Alejandro, who has plenty of experience from living on the streets and mugging people) would be able to see the gaps in the berserker’s offense, slip through, and deliver devastating counterattacks. Plus, you have to keep in mind how athletic Mike is. I’m thinking Mike could mop the floor with Paulo if he was motivated.

I gotta say, I agree with Thanatos here… Lucy just admitted it was her fault and yet Paulo self righteously rages at Mike? He’s acting a bit of an a hole. Still, I suppose it’s in his character to justify things even when they are wrong.
Though I thought the ‘abusive men’ bit of the comment was funny in a dark way, I wouldn’t say I could agree, or disagree to that, since I don’t know! :P
Kudos, great page, lovely poses and flow.

Seriously, Paulo! Let her deal with it! She knows she was being a bitch so she can go apologize!

I’ve never imagined Lucy actually dating someone. In my head, it’s usually just that she’s really good friends with both Paulo and Mike. I don’t know about boyfriends but I think what Lucy really needs in life is a good, strong friend to lean on.

Hm, let’s see, Mike was the only one who put up with her for a while. In fact, old Lucy was less angsty and committed slightly less abusive acts towards Mike. Then came Sandy.

My theory: Lucy lost Mike to Sandy and for a moment, realized that Mike would not always be with her. After that, Lucy grew a cold shoulder towards Mike that she sometimes hid when she realized how good of a friend he is. Otherwise, Lucy is just trying to protect herself from the awful feeling that could come the day she finally loses Mike

Wow. Lucy’s face really IS cute in that last panel. In fact, I was about to comment on that when I noticed your little bio thing and you said you thought it was cute as well. :3

Anyone else remember when Mike kicked Paulo’s *** for the 12th time.

I dont get it. how is that a dick move? if someone is horrid to you day after day, despite all the hard times you’ve helped them through, why should you put up with them? I mean if you switched the sexes here it would be about a girl getting harassed daily, despite her vocal pleas to be left alone, and when she finally lashes out the boys around her tell her she’s being a bitch.
