This is a far more lively page than what a lot of us here are probably used to as of late, which makes for a refreshing change of pace. Jazzy’s sure gonna have a rough time dragging an unconscious Paulo around… but at least they’re getting to see each other more often in spite of her billion extracurricular activities. That’s gotta be a plus, right? :D

EDIT: Oh Paulo, why did you enter the Kickstarter Project? I think I need to laugh up a lung…

I know they’re cats, but it’s so weird to see Paulo getting pulled by his neck. That detail is giggle-worthy, though. XD

Now he’ll get to have hours of alone time with her, he just won’t be concious for any of it.

Doctor: The damage, it’s irreparable.
Jasmine: Are you sure? Isn’t there anything else you can try?!
Doctor: I’m sorry, there’s nothing I can do.
Jasmine: :,(
Paulo: (wakes up)…Jasmine? I think we should break up.
Jasmine: What?! Why?!?!
Paulo: There’s… someone else.
Jasmine: Who?!?!?!
Paulo: …Abbey

is she dragging him to get him to help? Or to get him out of the cage so she can keep training.

It is nice to see something more about Paulo and Jasmine’s relationship.
It felt like it risked becoming something of little importance, and therefore destined to be sooner or later broken with little remorse. Of all the couples in BCB this might very well be the closest to what most teenagers experience in high school, with the usual little problems but no gigantic dramas.

I loved that Kickstarter movie thingy. Lucy sounds so girly and seductive. Also, WTF Paulo? (both this page and the Kickstarter) XD

Oh my God, Paulo. NIce going.

Paulo’s such a nice guy. Get’s hit in the face by a baseball and still offers water, before promptly passing out.
Looks like Jazz did end up drinking that water after all. Must say, she looks pretty sharp in that outfit of hers.

Wait, he droped the water on the last page. What witchcraft be this?

Comment ID #226143

Why do people keep saying Paulo is dead :question: he is just unconcious and also why isn’t anybody calling an ambulance Paulo might have a concussion and he might forget about his friends D:. Also water makes everything better after a nice long day of working out or in this case training, yay! Edit: I just saw the kickstarter video and I think it is awesome and hilarious, but I have a question: Was that Paulo at the end of the video?

…was that actually paulo’s voice at the end of that kickstarter video?

how the **** does he have any friends at all, let alone a girlfriend?

that is the most extremely painful voice i’ve ever heard, and it was only there for a second! :/

well, now we all know that paulo sounds like a cat being strangled by freddy krueger as rusted machinery grinds them both into dust.

i’m curious, why is it called “starting over”, instead of “volume two”?

did you guys just decide to start using subtitles instead of generic volume numbers?

either way, whenever they become available, i’ll be buying both books… “starting over” looks nice.

the video wasn’t bad, either… those cats looked great, and they seemed well-behaved.

I wonder if Jasmine is going be with Paulo until he wakes up or will she just leave him at the hospital and go to one of her many extracurricular activities, such as hanging out with her friends or school related.

This is a great comic! It took me a matter of 9 hours, give or take, to complete, but worth it!

treblig, I hope we prove you wrong! I really like how it’s coming along so far.

Arkairyn, who knows what Kickstarter is for! I think the days of it being much more than a centralised place for preorders are long gone.

I liked the video. Lucy’s voice is super cute! But if that was Paulo at the end… Um maybe he’s going through puberty? Again?
