Author commentary

Veronica: I feel mildly proud at the fact that Jasmine was the popular pick in the page before, cosidering I spent the most time designing her.. her little dog friend in second place. I GUESS I WAS DOING THINGS RIGHT FOR A CHANGE ;____;

A whole new month ahead, vote vote vote!! It sure it getting pretty shoujo in the incentive comic, though.. so for those that do not like ROMANSUU it would probably be a bad idea to check it out lol

but no seriously check it out because votes pyonpyonpyonnnnn.

I had a lot of fun just ******** up the backgrounds in this page, made a guy hullahoop and made some people run around. Great fun, dawg.

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!

Yay now Jasmine!…Paulo rly needs to attend some sex education class with that crappy sex ed teacher at middle school…needs to be scared out and wear nice safe protection…or he’ll finaly will get his real “Alergia”.

Awesome. ^_^ Paulo chose the cute, shy one. She has a cute name too. Jasmine.

Holy… XD Paulo’s rethinking nailing her when we suddenly discover that Cassidy is a female David! She’s encouraging all the wrong things… That’s probably gonna lead to Jasmine trying to impress Paulo… and him thinking that, maybe, she IS a ****… *facepalm*

Oh and it just occurred to me. With Mike being so close to David, wouldn’t he hear all this talk about nailing girls? o.O Haha, maybe he’s just ignoring it.

Also, I somewhat thought David was a bit odd calling a scary movie romantic, but I guess it CAN be in a way… especially if Jasmine’s clinging to Paulo all the way through it. Heh.

I can’t wait to see whether she’s making tht angry face because her friend is joking about her “putting out” or because she didn’t think at first that this sophomore might be such a creep. I hope it’s the latter. Paulo needs to get back on track with being a likable guy, or he’s going to fall out of MY favour. Mad Lucy

To answer Flavio, “put out” is to want someone to have sex with you. I’m 14 and I know this. Basically, the girl wrote, he excepts her to have sex with him. Him being Paulo.

Anyways, I like Jasmine’s design, but I would like to see Amaya for some reason.

I just noticed something. Whenever Paulo looks like he’s about to be smart and make good choices or start having a good relationship, David says something that causes him to do something stupid and mess it up.

Theory:The guy that trained Paulo to be the way he has been throughout most of the comic sent some goons after Paulo to scare/mess with him for basically saying the training ruined him and that. They chased him up a tree and barked at him. David is probably the younger brother of one of these said goons and is tasked to keep Paulo from making good choices and the like.

I think this is hilarious. Hasn’t anyone ever thought that someone might not want to gloat about their antics? If Jessica never went out with Paulo, we never woulda found out about her flings. She doesn’t really gloat or chat loudly about it. Granted there’s a whole obvious ulterior motive but it’s hard to believe “this never happened at my school!!!” because maybe the people just aren’t total ****** that feel the need to let their personal lives be known by the school.

It’s not like Jess is even the town ****, so she hasn’t even made an impact enough for people to know.

Vote, a lot. If we stay high enough on the list Taeshi tends to post past incentives for people who missed them.

Sorry, bro. If I send you past incentives I might as well send everyone else past incentives. You’re just gonna have to hope people keep voting until Souppy and I feel like posting a whole batch.

All of Molly’s adventure is gonna be posted after Back and Forth ends, for example. As a chapter.

Incentive - Oh, dear. Lucy seriously needs to talk with someone level-headed, like Abbey, McCain, and/or Sue. Liam is off the charts on my “creepy-stalky-predator meter.” Even Paulo, at his worst, barely ranked mention on that meter. Here’s hoping Lily can at least talk sense into Lucy. Remember your theme song, Lucy!

Edit: I just realized that Liam may have a past history that I do not know. Is this so, and where can I find it?

I hope this comment isn’t taken the wrong way, as I very much enjoy the story that unfolds here, but… I couldn’t help but notice (just now after reading every page in archive) that there is a severe lack of clothing in Paulo’s grade. It just struck me as a funny little fact.

Why is my first comment such a nervouse wreck?

Don’t worry Thu’gel, the clothing issue is almost a running joke amongst readers anyway.

I wonder if the people who question where Michael went or what’s happening in the play have ADD or simply don’t understand the structure of the comic. This is a chapter about Paulo, so it tells a story about Paulo. After it finishes, a new chapter will begin which will have another focus. It is likely Michael and the play will be revisited in future chapters.

Would people prefer all the current story arcs shoehorned into each chapter so that you can keep tabs on what’s happening? Seems kind of absurd.

No thanks on that. Have had enough of stuff like that with at least 2 comics and some anime where they jump to different people or plot points different from the one they were just on every few strips/minutes.

I really don’t like where this is going….. what happened to the chivalrous Paulo that helped Lucy in her time of need…. I really miss that Paulo….. I hate David so much right now.

Well I suppose I can only hope for the best. But at the rate Paulo is going, he’ll probably end up raping Jasmine while David cheers him on from the side lines.

Jasmine is cute and awesome. She actually seems up beat and in tune with paulo in later panels. Not the soul sucking terror that Lucy is.
