Haha ingenius as always Paulo. Finally got the book and I’m rediscovering exactly why I love this comic. It’s one of the few stories I have ever been able to reread and conjure up the same emotions I had when I read it the first time, so I know I say this every time I post, but thank you so much Taeshi.

I actually like the perspective of the last shot, however what really sells it to me is the beautiful details from the tree shadows. I just might have to ask how you get that water-color feel and whether it is a photoshop brush plug-in.

Either way beautiful work as always

Comment ID #176375

Nice to see the purple bitch from the last page didn’t even ****ing give him directions…I know you shouldn’t expect a stranger to like give you money or a way to use a cell phone, but vocal directions aren’t that hard. Or did she give him directions and it’s just that Taeshi didn’t draw/show it?

When Paulo mentions he’s stuck with Lucy in a thought bubble, I was just thinking, “Oh no, does he think that’s a bad thing?” Two panels later leads me to believe otherwise, since he’s smiling and blushing about it. :D

Lucy has to go to the bathroom AGAIN. Dear Lord…What did she have to eat/drink this morning anyway? Fiber One with soy milk? Seriously, WTF? Paulo, as far as I can tell, hasn’t had to use the bathroom once.

Where are they? The ****ing Bronx? Who leaves a shopping cart in a bush? Well, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Paulo looks to really be having a blast with it. Look at him in the last two panels. Now THAT is a happy face. It’s like he’s a little kid who pushes around the little lawnmower with the colorful balls in the dome thing… Hope someone else will know what I’m talking about.

I’m shocked that Lucy agreed to riding in the cart, but hey oh…Paulo must be very convincing. 8-)

He also looks quite a bit younger in the final panel. Must be all that youthful enthusiasm 8-D

Does she still have to use the bathroom? Strong bladder. :x

Paulo’s face in the last panel reminds me a bit of HTF… I have NO idea why. :/

Glad things are starting to look up to Paulo after all he’s been through… I think getting thrown up on had to be the worst for him so far in this chapter.

Comment ID #176423

Hm… Paulo’s thought bubble is blue. Lucy seems to emit some kind of blue clouds… Unlikely but maybe she worked herself so hard over learning the script that it literally drove her sick. Now he thought which are filled with lines upon lines are reaching such density in he mind that they begin the burst into the physical realm…. (<- Is sick. Slept about 10 hours past 3 days. Feels her pain)

Edit: You should really stop worrying about perspective. Its great as it is! Besides even if it wouldn’t be, the comic has Paulo pushing Lucy in a shopping cart. With that, crying over perspective is like arguing that there is too cold outside while watching the solar eclipse.

Lucy just won’t take the tough face off. Upside is the chance of the brutalized pair is low. Downside is they’re still nowhere near home.

And littering is the epitome of laziness. There are trashcans. There are more trashcans than necessary. People are just too LAZY to bother. The excuses aren’t even valid. One piece of paper dropped by millions of people is millions of pieces of paper. What? I hate littering.

I don´t know if anyone´s actually said this, or whether it even needs to be said, but I´ma do it now anyway.
Them perspectives you do in yer comic, while a little dodgy at times, work just fine with portraying the mood or feel (or whatever them artsy types call ´em) of the situations. Luckily, most of your fanbase seems not too pre-occupied with criticising your drawing skills and would rather just get their fix of BCB on the three prescribed week-days. I for one don´t remember ever noticing a perspective mistake before you pointed it out.
So chill the flicker out, Taeshi : O

I got my boyfriend into reading this a few weeks ago, and he caught up about last week. I was reading with him and started paying more attention to things, and I loved when you brought in color. You’ve gotten a lot better since you started, Taeshi. It’s kind of inspiring. I’ve considered giving up on drawing, but seeing your progress is making me want to draw more. This is a really good example of “you can only get better”.
Also, I saw someone doing the cart thing at Wal-Mart with her best friend. <_>

you gotta admit, Paulo is handling this pretty calmly for a dude. most guys I know who would be around Paulo’s age, if a girl puked and wet herself ON him, he’d be so grossed out and get the f**k away from her, even if she was hot or not.
Paulo’s pretty cool to be so down with the situation he’s in and not flailing around like a maniac ;P
