Author commentary

Veronica: This page started on a new book, I remember. Funny how things like that can always be recalled, I kept bouncing between really loving this particular page and getting annoyed with the fluctuating quality by the end of it.

Paulo is our own Dr. Phil, durpadurp.

Whoa, guess what. This is the last page of 2009 since the next page is posted on Friday, January 1st! Happy New Year!

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.

Not thinking that her feelings aren´t big deal?
She should check the previous pages, lol

Heh, Lucy is hard-headed, if the girls will make her talk, then I give them a cookie!

Ah, the coven springs into action. Girls are messed up creatures, and now they’re all gonna round on Mike for being a jerk. Or else they’ll round on Lucy for trying to get between a guy and a girl he’s faithful to.

Though I can guess easily enough what the boys are gonna do: they’re gonna grunt for a while, punch each other and then go out bowling.

I noticed Abbey is the only one who puts 2 and 2 together, all the other guys (Mike excluded of course) are all like “huhwha?” and Abbey is like “Oh ****…OH ****” and then he gets all sad for Lucy.

@ Rock: Rofl, it’s inevitablllleeeeee!!!

Daisy’s a total lifesaver.

Rofl, I love how in the second-to-last panel Paulo’s glaring down at Mike. You can tell that even if he’s silent, he’s still screaming “WHAAAAAAAAAAAT?????!!!” in his head xD

<< GIRL TALK! >> And off she goes, kidnapped one again… LOL

Come to think of it, Lucy’s last kidnapping ended with her almost having to admit that she didn’t want to go on the trip in order to stay with Mike (remember, chapter 42 “Invitation” - page 8 and the following). Lets see what she has to admit to this time…

I remember that, when I first saw this, I totally though Mike was being a jerk… Still, now I really see that Lucy’s the one at fault.
Gotta love Mike in the last two panels. 8-D

Wonderful. Everything is going great for the two of them, wouldn’t you agree?!!

I’d love to see Paulo sing the song “This Boy” by The Beatles in front of all them.

“That boy took my love away,
He’ll regret it someday,
But this boy wants you back again.

That boy isn’t good for you,
Tho’ he may want you too,
This boy wants you back again.

Oh, and this boy would be happy,
Just to love you, but oh my-yi-yi-yi,
That boy won’t be happy,
Till he’s seen you cry-hi-hi-hi.

This boy wouldn’t mind the pain,
Would always feel the same,
If this boy gets you back again.
This boy. This boy. this boy.”

I think the lyrics fit the love triangle between Lucy, Mike, and Paulo to a tee. Literally, everything fits perfectly. Lucy is the girl, Mike is the jerk who wants to hurt the girl, and Paulo is the one with his love stolen away.

Do you agree, Taeshi?

“Alright Lucy, we ALL love Mikie, and I even obsessed over him for a while, but you are the only one who still needs to let go and we are going to teach you how the same way we did it!” I can totally see Daisy saying that before getting into a talk about how there is probably some other boy who likes her and she just hasn’t noticed him yet. :P

I love how in the third-to-last panel the realization has just hit Abbey and it looks like he’s thinking, “Uh-oh…I smell drama.”

Funny how annoying and insignificant Paulo was in the beginning. Now he cares more about the well being of all the girls than anyone.
