@Notorious_D: At first Paulo said Mike wanted to bang Sue. Then in panel six Paulo implys Mike wants to bang Lucy. Paulo says Mike’s in denial about lucy and always has been. Lucy pops Paulo’s bubble by telling him he’s been wrong the entire time. Paulo is confused. Mike makes an excuse to get out of the awkward situation. Paulo is now even more confused. Does this help you understand?

@Koren: I think Notorious was saying Paulo’s out of the loop.

In Lucy’s eyes, I see, anger, depression, a bit of relief(probably at finally coming clean) and regret. Also, there’s not a trace of love in them. But neither is there hate. How interesting… Hey Taeshi, I really like how you mange to put so much emotion into their eyes. It’s one of the hardest parts of drawn comics, I’ve heard.

Hey, ain’t Mike sensitive to loud noises? Then why is it when he screams he does not feel it’s too loud? :O

Not necessarily. That style of hat (I think it’s called a barret) is an art-director hat, or a painter’s hat. I think the style originated in France, but the actual thing isn’t French. Sue is trying to be more authentic, I think. ;)

Poor little Lucy with her broken heart. Once Paulo finds out about all the things…Ooh, it’ll get good, I’m sure… :D

I love the use of “What.”

That’s when you know someone is truly flummoxed… when “What” is not even a question, it’s just… “What. ”

You mean the “Flat What”. :D Yep.

Nintendo, not dissing your spelling but it’s “beret”, barret just makes me think of 50 cal firearms lol. Which mike probably wishes he has pointed at him right now…

The big, dumbfounded “WHAT.” Not even a question. And then “WHAAAAAAAT!?” It’s like “BWAAAAAA!?” It makes me laugh. XD
