Author commentary

Veronica: I remember someone a page back remarked about how it was funny Paulo doesn’t really have so much money, yet he managed to buy himself like ten sodas. WELL THERE IS YOUR ANSWER. Good ol’ Maishul has himself quite the allowance saved up.

By the way before this chapter is done (possibly before the end of next week) we will have the “real” BCB forum.. but for now feel free to take a gander at the Bittersweet Candy Bowl fan forum!

also a new incentive, it is quite the eventful day this Friday…

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.

How much you wanna bet Lucy is plotting to buy a ton of that soda to win the bike, and hopefully Mike along with it. And knowing plots like this, she will win, but it won’t work (not completely at least)

Whats up with Lucy? I mean she has to be sad she has no mouth. Oh and i’m lovin the invisible bike chain

@jelloman : Shhhh, don’t spoil it!

@Andyfox : Bike chains are sold separately!

Awwwww, Lucy!!!! She doesn’t look sad, but instead looks like she’s got an idea hatching. And perhaps slightly embarrassed.

Tell Abbey to stop staring at me in the last panel his eyes kinda follow me everywhere.

Andyfox March 26, 2010, 3:17 AM EST.

Comment ID #2075

Actually, it kinda looks like Paulo almost got nervous suddenly or something. His word bubble is partially over the other one in the second to last panel, and it’s all wobbly-shaped, as is the laughter one… so it’s like he’s drunk on soda or abruptly anxious.

Lucy looks so… combination of sad and bashful.

@Glasses You can’t be saying that invisible bike chains don’t exist thats like saying that M&M’s can’t really talk.

Also, you people above this comment read too much into things. Myself, I see what comes and see what goes.

Okay what

I seriously drew a bike chain when the page was initially sketched, I musta forgotten to ink that bit, aaaaaaaaaaa

Abbey’s glaring at Paulo, btw. Because Abbey hates him.

So many things wrong with this page, so little time

Paper bag anyone? :P
I don’t it as too much hassle, just break someone’s bike and slap on the chain.

Hm i think Lucy is just to cofused to see 2 belowed People so energetic in Front of her unable to make à Move. This does Not mean Lucy is now atached at Mike but i think She will Never forger her Feelings for him. ob the other hand It could Be something in the Near Future no One Knows about until its revealed.

@ oddguy screw you ^^ yust because her fluffing or how its called with Paolo shes didn’t became à sl.... You Know.

I don’t think Lucy is actually plotting anything here. Looks more to me like she’s still pining over Mike, and feeling left out.

@ I don’t hate you

Breaking the 4th wall. It appears like Abe is staring at the reader, as though he’s aware that we are watching him.

Jay March 26, 2010, 2:13 PM EST.

Comment ID #2109

I kinda like the way Lucy is looking... simply adorable, I think.

But I’m wondering which person she’s staring at: Mike or Paulo...

PS: I don’t think Abbey is staring at me. Maybe because I’ve done nothing wrong? ;)
PPS: Paulo and Tess belong together!!

Monsta Kirby, I think it’s because your ASCII art has HTML tags in it that get parsed out. You can’t write , for instance.

She’s found a new person to cling to, which can’t be good for an unstable boy like Paulo…

Really? I thought she was just still ridiculously embarrassed around Michael, if you remember the ending of the last chapter.

Judging from the rest of the chapter and the start of the following one, I think the implication is that Lucy’s staring at Paulo and blushing.
