Author commentary

Veronica: Hello! New chapter, whooo! And it is not that short, either! This one was written by Souppy.

I tried to go for a kind of different style, too. It needs a bit of work but I am going to try and stick to it and see what happens! Experimentation!!!

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.

Hello new chapter! Augustus-centric is always welcome! Also, the new style is pretty interesting! Can’t wait to see more of it.
Anyway, that cat in panel four looks like she’s related to Jess.

On a totally unrelated note, pretty sure today marks one year of my reading this.

Like the new style, at least it works well with Augustus, have to see how the others look. Hope to see more into his background. Thanks for posting it, the wait was half the fun, and thanks as always Taeshi and SuitCase.

I really thought this was a guest chapter lol. Sure got me fooled there till I read the page comment. :smirk:

That first page alone was how I was back in high school. Daydream out the window, calmly walk out of class, some jock-like person bumps into me and rushes out, look back at him with a glare and head to my locker, grab/put away stuff for next class, and look around to make sure I’m not being spyed on (doubt that’s what the last panel is). :/

Seems we get to know more about Augustus… would be nice to know him a bit more than what has been shown before. :x

Like the face of Augustus, except for the last panel. It’s not a bad style, actually p. good, but i honestly prefer the previous one. Oh and i saw that husky, excellent.

I’ll be honest. New style is terrible and I hate it. It’s not as cute anymore.

It just doesn’t seem or feel like BCB now. Like a crappy rip off.

I enjoy the amount of dogs in this page. I mean, we hardly see any besides David, which makes his character kind of unique, but at the same time it is nice to see more. I’m looking forward to something about Augustus, perhaps he’s not the creep that he’s always made out to be.

The TWC description makes me smile. Rude bumping into Augustus makes me mad. The implications of the first potentially Augustus-focused segment of notable lenth since chapter 40… has my attention.

Not quite liking the sudden style change, :/but then again, I’m not one for change in general. *shrugs* I’m looking forward to this chapter though. And since when was Augustus so short? :unsure:

That girl in panel 4 reminds me of Jessica. Pretty sure she isn’t, though. Jess prefers being dressed, her eye color seems off, and her hair and fur is a maybe situation at best.

And if its a good chapter maybe soupy will be inspired??? Haha :) either way—— it be Beddy by time so night! :)

N-Star September 5, 2011, 3:55 AM EST.

Comment ID #180511

:o The style here sure feels a whole lot more detailed in comparison to the previous pages; maybe it’s because there’s a lot showing in the first panel, and the lineart kind of looks thinner.
Personally I like the older style, but I kind of want to say it’s because of the colored lineart, the gray on Augustus in particular XP
But experimentation’s always good, and colored lines are always a nice touch-up :3 I’m just wanting to give my own lil piece of feedback.

And I really look forward to seeing what comes from this lil chapter o 30

This looks interesting; I’m happy to see Suitcase writing another chapter. The style is noticeably different, but not in a negative way. It reminds me more of the fanart you get, or comics the creator of Tess makes? Like, it’s noticeably less cartoonish and exaggerated, and looks a little more “furry.” I’m sorry if that offends you!

why did you change the art style Teshi, you know that I fear change… but the bold lines and pretty colors are so hypnotic..

Why did you change something that was not broken, Taeshi? I honestly do NOT like your new art style, and I can’t conceive why you would want to change it to begin with. It’s gonna be a real eye-sore in the Volume 2 book. Please tell me it won’t be a permanent thing… D:

Anyways, despite the new art style, this chapter looks VERY promising. I don’t believe we’ve ever had a chapter fully centered around Augustus yet. This could help me write my one fanfiction that I’ve been trying to write that was all centered around him.

Comment ID #180570

A lot of people aren’t going to be used to the change, but change is good. Artists improve and develop a new style through their comics every day on the internet, and I’m surprised to say that I’m actually anticipating more of this.

Normally I’m on the boat of “Nooo! They’re updating their style!” but eventually it becomes the norm, especially if the artist likes the new style and goes with it.

Don’t let others saying they liked the old better get you down if you REALLY like this new design. But, if in the long run you do want to return to the old, feel free to do so. I’m pretty sure all of us will stick through to the end either way <3

The style is good and does need more work, however, if you try to combine both styles you might make it look even better. A good suggestion I suppose.

I love the new style. It’s still totally Vero, and generally shifts in styles are natural? It’s hard to shift backwards. So people who will whine for the older work are just gonna hafta deal B]

Hm, those two last panels seem really familiar.

I adore the new style btw, even though I kinda got used to the old one ?
Are you using this temporarily, or is it for special chapters or is it gonna be a complete change for a few arcs?

Are we going to see a secret agent Augustus with a secret passage to his secret underground lair through a school locker with a book as a switch for a door that opens up for the above mentioned secret underground lair which Augustus is about to open?

Also, Augustus looks like Batman or something at panel 6….

Leading to my theory that Augustus has an underground lair which can be accessed through his locker with a book as a secret mechanism that can open a door leading him downwards, towards his underground lair.

I appreciate your experiment and the dogs look nice but from what I can see now, I liked the old style better. Just saying.

ShadowAce September 5, 2011, 12:27 PM EST.

Comment ID #180613

mmm…alright this is my opinion on the new style… the thick lines make it seem a little bit “dirty”, or “unpolished” something i don´t particularly enjoy, the frames are kind of annoying but I can get used to them and in panel four (left to right the one where he is exiting the classroom) the trace and contrast of colors make the girl stand out more than FF cat (jeje) is it the tracing or the coloring??… mmm… well it looks weird, some issues of perspective here and there but nothing too horrible or game breaking, the coloring looks amazing much more vivid and lively than before, but the lines, they should all be of strong colors, the dog that is hitting FF cat seems blurry compared with the girl in the previous panel, and I think that can be fixed with a dark brown instead of the light one you placed for his lines… maybe thats what bothers me, consistency, either everyone should look blurry or everyone should look intense… dont know if you get what i mean…

excellent look over all, amazing comic as always, loved the expressions and well, hope to see more!!!!

Comment ID #180616

It’s actually psychologically fine to hate something new. Actually most of our minds see this as hate because it’s different and the mind isn’t used to it. Ever heard of a chair called the Aeron?

Everyone thought it was absolutely horrid, a metal death trap, but once they sat in it they thought otherwise. It became on of the highest grossed chairs. At first, the entire public hated it, shunned it, “ruined forever” but then see what happened?

I think it’s the same here with the art style. It’s new, there was no warning, it was kind of thrown upon us so the natural reaction is ‘Whoah, what the hell is this?’

In time, people get used to it. So patience is in order.

I like the style, it does a good job of capturing emotion and it more realistic than the previous style. Though i must say I still prefer the art style Taeshi was using just before she switched over to fully colored pages. I just thought it was more pure and aesthetically pleasing, but maybe that’s just me. Anyways, don’t listen to us Taeshi, you should do what you want to with the comic and not give in to the people who complain about any change.

I think some of the other commenters have a point. At first, I was rather baffled by the new style, but given a few minutes, it’s grown on me. One thing that does bug me, though, is the eyes. Some of them just seem… blank, wrong.

It’s a tricky one. The green-eyed cat in panel 1 looks great - the eyes are brilliant. But Gussie in almost every panel, and the pink cat in panel 4, just don’t seem to have any life in their eyes. Or that’s how I see it, anyway.

Much maligned (especially by Lucy), I am interested in getting a more in-depth look into Augusts’ character, particularly with respect to his motivations. It’s never been clearly explained exactly why he’s the kind of jerk that he is: So far, he’s only been something of an antagonist of the week, as it were, and as we’ve seen, nothing in this comic is quite that simple (except for the guy who laced the apples with sedatives last Halloween: I’m pretty sure he’s just a jerk).

*GASP* It’s all different and updated lookingggg. This is amazing. What I really like is that you can tell people apart not just by their pendants and such. They all seem to have their own personalities right off the bat, you don’t even need to talk about them. And jeez what is FFC’s problem? I mean dude, it’s a book. Calm down.

Wolf dog husky thing is god. Seriously. He is so hot. And all of them are nakey except for FFC and period girl. You don’t see that too often with people other than the main characters. I applaud this even though I don’t know why I’m clapping.

I don’t mean to offend, but the first thing I thought when I saw Augustus in the last panel… DAT FACE.

Augustus has a gun? It’s a gun, isn’t it…. is it a gun? it’s a gun. Yeah, it’s a gun.
Haha, I have no idea. But I don’t think he’d be that rash.

Am I the only person that thought of Death Note when Augustus got the book and looked around? Yes? No?

I’m pretty psyched for this chapter! Loving the new style, too.

Taeshi,love the new style!!!!! It looks like an manga! Though, the eyes may need some help, but thats just me. You never stop suprising us!

Im hope i finally get the answers that ive been searching for about augustus and lucy!!!! I still think he drugged her!!!!!

khBlindRiku September 6, 2011, 12:25 AM EST.

Comment ID #180745

@khBlindRiku - What.
He drugged her? That doesn’t make any sense, you know.
And don’t tell Taeshi it looks like a manga, it’s not what she’s going for.
I like the new style, I think it’s moving away from manga and becoming more comic-ish.

Well, i thought i liked the new style. But now, after looking at it for a while, it’s just not nearly as crisp and sharp as your normal style. I suppose my opinion doesn’t matter because you’re going to use this style for a while anyway.

StarSturdy September 6, 2011, 1:56 AM EST.

Comment ID #180753

I like the new style. The world through his eyes could be shown with an art style difference. No idea if that’s intentional. For example, the #4 post in candybooru is perfect as an example of the trope “Four Is Death.” Was it planned? Maybe?

@Riku: Drugged Lucy? What? If you’re talking about her in the last chapter, that was being sick. As explained two pages ago. If not, what do you mean?

Hello Taeshi,

I found this comic through an ad on Smackjeeves, and I’ve immediately fallen in love with it. Awesome, awesome, awesome comic ^_^ It’s a lot better than you sometimes make it out to be with the perspective crits ;) For example, I looked at this, and Dominic Deegan, a comic I love as well.


I started reading yesterday, finished in four or five hours, went to sleep… and re-read 6/8 of the comic, and still found it JUST as emotional as the first time. I, as mentioned before, adore this comic. Kudos, mate. Kudos.

Also, I feel LucyxMike is the most natural pairing (Though I love… Pretty much all Paulo pairings) and is what’s kind of destined to happen. I’m getting the feeling that Mike still harbours some sort of feelings for Lucy, but feels guilty about them because he’s loyal to Sandy.

Also, this page -the style is ok, but I like the old one :3 OOOOOH, WHAT’D AUGUSTUS FIIIND 8-D

*Insert wittily written closing here*

Hmm… I think I preferred the old style. This one makes them look more like… shaggy? Meh. I don’t know. It looked cleaner before, but this will eventually grow on me. Always does. I like the eyes though.

Okay, I don’t know if someone else has already meantioned this before, but I am going to bring it up anyways. That cat with the pigtails and the bell around her neck, in panel four…is that…doesn’t that look like Ichigo from Tokyo Mew Mew to anyone, or am I just weird? o.0

Okay, well anyways, I really like this new style! :D They look furrier. x3 Which is good because, you know, they are animals.

The new style is nice and it seems like you’re trying to go towards a more serious feel with it. 8-)

I wear jackets like the one Final Fantasy Rape Cat is wearing all the time. I’ve actually been a little depressed at how warm it has been. I also used to style my hair something like his is, but now I’m going bald, so I can’t anymore.

I’m reading this webcomic for several months now, but I think this is the first time I make a comment.

Anyway, back to topic…

I think to really know if I like this new style or not, I have to see some more pages.

Still, I noticed a few things: You usually use colored lines but you drew the face of the beige dog in panel 1 with black lines, this looks a bit off. You also drew the outline of Augustus’ hair in a light gray, but in panel 6 in black, which seems strange.

I agree with JMOR, you have to be carful that characters in the background don’t stand out more than the characters in the foreground when using colored lines.

SD-DAken September 6, 2011, 12:09 PM EST.

Comment ID #180786

Lovin the new style, really. Augustus’ face in the sixth and last panels are awesome.

Keep this style! I like it more than the previous one :D

PS: Also, I noticed you put clothes in seccondary characters as well.

What makes the main characters special now?!

I really love your new experimental style Taeshi!
the colorful outlines ,that i noticed are also thinner ,gives that tiny bit more life into the characters ,I absolutely love it! I hope you’ll keep it! 8-D

I actually LOVE this style, so far so good.
I like how it’s a bit detailed yet still a very cartoon-y style.
can’t wait to see what the main characters look like!~

Oh, annnnnd
I love the pink cat’s expression, she reminds me of myself when I’m the last to finish a test at the end of class :P

For people who are complaining that this is looking more like a furry comic, they should note that by definition this is actually a “funny animal” comic, or a comic using anthropomorphic characters which are separate from the furry fandom and thus not intended to be furries, similar to Bugs Bunny or Mickey Mouse. Also, it has been a funny animal comic all along, the only difference is the style Taeshi is using to portray her characters.
