Heh. Paulo’s been really just too SERIOUS in the last bunch of chapters (no Dark Knight references, please). It’s refreshing to see him back to being the rough, comic relief guy.
That said, with everything that’s happened, he is tied with Lucy as the character I feel the most sorry for. :(

I don’t get the significance of the scarf, I’ve just got my theories that are most likely false…

@ Zacharo

OMGOSH, I just noticed that! xDDDD I’m laughing so hard right now.

Okay, gimme a moment…..

okay xD

@ Hannibal: Well as I continue to read (and re-read) the comic, I think that… the blue scarf symbolizes Mike’s love for Lucy, while the orange-and-yellow one symbolizes well… Sandy luff.

Opening the locker, his face went pale and he felt all the angst returning. He had thought that his romantic fantasies with Lucy had been long gone behind him. But here they are, rearing their angsty heads out of nowhere and throwing his life into possible chaos. His seeing the unexpected scarf in his locker is perhaps a parallel to Lucy’s totally unexpected confession to him the other day.

I like the second to last panel and how Paulo just shoves that girl out of the way on his way to Mike.

Comment ID #159212

*SPOILER ALERT!* the reson Mike’s scarf is that kind of blue is because thats the color of Lucy’s eyes. Thats why Mike slamed the locker. It made him think of Lucy witch made him think of what she said.

Comment ID #162541

So Lucy put it into his locker, or was it always in his locker? Didn’t he throw it away at some point? :O

Aw…I would’ve loved to see Paulo kick Mike’s ***. But no. I was denied. :(

Ha. Wayne’s World reference. :)

Comment ID #188234

So the scarf really is blue because of Lucy’s eyes, ‘cause he remembered her when he saw it. WHY DID HE SAY NO?!? :D <—- Sandy is happy. WHYYY?!?
