Author commentary

Veronica: Aha, The Burden of Parenthood. This was one of my most popular chapters back in the day, so I decided to redraw when we were preparing our first book. I’ll let it stand without comment, I guess!

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.

Removal of the organs, that sounds about right. Miss teacher there must not have had hers removed though, sounds like she’s got a lotta sand up hers

Irony, the ad I have is Virgin Mobile…I think this applies to the teacher more than anyone else. :/

This teacher sounds a lot more threatening than serious, and I love it.
