Back and Forth — Page 6

Author commentary

Veronica: Interesting that Paulo debates the word being used for one girl and not another. Are you still salty about your rejection, Paulo? Lucy has been SO MUCH meaner than Tess!!

Anyway, perhaps it was good you had salt because Jessica is a salt-fiend. For Tess’ misery.

Oliver: Fourth panel here is the cutest Jessica in the entire comic, by the way.

A preview of the upcoming BCB page.

Tess is a senior currently so she’ll obviously be graduating.. and depending on what college she gets accepted into, could very well LEAVE 4EVER.

which is why she doesn’t wanna date paulo because she thinks it’s all just a tragedy and feels long-distance wouldn’t work out

even though she totally wants him

Oh the idiotic webs “impressionable fifteen-year-olds” weave!

It’s not like we can truly blame Paulo, though. He’s not intentionally trying to hurt Tess or Lucy and it seems doubtful he could even think of things turning out like that. He’s just a shortsighted little bugger!

He’s a sweetheart at… well, heart and he did just display impressive restraint, did he not?

He’s also thinking with the wrong head in this situation, but that’s just him, isn’t it?

I await ravenously for the next comic!

I think he’s given up on pursuing Tess. She put her foot down on it and he’s tired of it. Lucy he’s still hanging onto because he knows damn well how hard emotional shit is for her in the first place.

And at the same time, he’s trying REALLY hard to be a manly man and get with all the ladies. I think he’s got his definitions of manhood confused. Unless you’re the goddamn Batman, you can’t be the guy who gets the girl AND the guy who gets the girls.

Read that last line closer if it didn’t make sense. I’ll wait…….there ya go.
