Author commentary

Veronica: First days of school always pass by really quick and you’re left with delightful fleeting moments, I guess that’s the way I’ve been wanting to do these “first day of school” comics, but instead of dragging on I guess we’re now at the end of the line.

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 hope it pleases you to know that when i was lying on the couch reading this, i jerked in surprise and accidentally rolled too far and almost fell off. i casually got back into place and acted like nothing happened… even when my friends stared. i’m a failure, aren’t i? ):

anyways, wow~~~! mike, didn’t know lucy was going to say that, huh?

i obviously didn’t. O;

beautiful page~ i love lucy’s expressions.

I kinda laughed at Lucy’s face in the last panel. But I guess it isn’t easy to confess your feeling to someone you don’t know whether he loves you or not…

Hehe, oh boy… Fun time! By fun I mean the world’s going to implode then violently explode, followed by another implosion sucking the universe in, then it all pops like a bubble.

Mike: “Can we have a conversation where you AREN’T being difficult with me?”

What the **** did she even do?! So she was lost in thought and wasn’t listening to you for a MEASLY SECOND! BIG ****ING WHOOP!

Jesus, I hate Mike. He needs to go die in a ditch somewhere. If he and Lucy end up together at the end after all this non-stop ****, then I’ll ****ing lose my mind…

@NintendoSegaSonyGuy— God, don’t hate on Mike just because he gets in the way of LucyxPaulo. Mike’s not a jerk or anything, despite how many times Lucy calls him one. He’s a nice guy.

Go easy on Mike, he just assumed she was being difficult with him because she always is! It’s like when you hear a song over and over again for long enough, if just keeps playing in your head even after it stops.

And so it began.

Then it will soon backfire.
In pure honesty, I don’t like the concept of MikeXSandy.
I don’t know, something’s just telling me that it wouldn’t work and in fact would just ruin everything up for at least one of them *ahem*
I think I’ve said enough…
