So Mikey has 2 sisters?

TakuniChan (Lindsay) December 23, 2009, 12:46 AM UTC.

TakuniChan: In the original series, Mike had two sisters: Haley and Cindy.. Haley is the bitchy girl that’s hogging the bathroom and harassing him at the table and Cindy was a baby.. but in the new Bittersweet I think I made Cindy a male baby.. though he isn’t shown in the comic at all.

The cat waving to Mike and Haley and getting on the car (Whose license reads THIS IS AUGHH to answer Xetch’s question) is Mike’s mother. She’s a businesswoman unlike Lucy’s housewife mommy.

Gabriel: We all want a piece of naked mike

when the scarf comes off OH MAN THE VAPORS

It’s okay Mike. The other team will still accept you if you play for them. ;)

Poor mike, i kinda know how he feels

JC "Frustrated Writer" June 8, 2010, 3:19 AM UTC.

Comment ID #39959

I know how he feels and I say he deserves to feel that way. But he doesn’t nearly feel bad enough yet. MORE ANGST IS REQUIRED! Or mental/emotional agony. Either one.

You know, I wager at some point in this comic, Sandy rejects Mike, thereby putting him in Lucy’s shoes(or ribbon, in this case).

@JC “Frustrated Writer”

You mean that feeling that makes you ask yourself “what did I do?” after you reject a girl who’s known you since early childhood?

They’re… they’re always naked under their fur. Except for the ***** who wear clothes which is… kind of confusing in itself, because if they’re *****, then why are they covering more up?

Wait…how can that type of alarm clock go “Beep beep?”

lol sulky mike

hey its meh lolz May 14, 2011, 5:28 PM UTC.

Comment ID #162540

Again, when the hell did Mike get a sister? I don’t remember that ever being explained! :O

If you’re going to give them siblings, at least make the siblings important.

Anyway, hey look, it’s just like the beginning of the previous chapter, only it’s in Mike’s perspective and Lucy isn’t there. Reminds me of the song “She’s Not There” by The Zombies.

Oh wow, I just realized that this chapter’s beggining is styled exactly like the last chapter’s. XD Veronica, that was a subtle thing to throw in, but my god do I love it. For now, I’ll read the older chapters. Think of happier times :3

Mike, you need to take a leaf out of Lucy’s new book and realize that she means more to you than you will ever care to admit.

I see what you did there with the little bonsai tree that Sandy gave to Mike that first time he tried to visit her. Also why does Haley hate Mike so much?
