Author commentary

Oliver: It’s kind of hard to write commentary when you want the comic to speak for itself. I’m not sure if people got the point of this chapter but I hope it sets something up in a way that’s not overt and horrible. If you know these characters well enough, you’ll understand what’s going on here.

I love the colouring on this page. I used to think the last panel worked to a cool and arty effect that accentuated the storytelling but it didn’t have the reaction I hoped for, so it was redrawn with Volume Three. Vero gets her way in the end.

Anyway, this is the last of me in this section for a while. The next chapter is written by Veronica, (as are most BCB chapters, for those who get confused with these things.)

And because people in the comments are apparently completely gullible as hell, just adding a note that he was joking, there is no pregnancy arc you dunces! — Veronica
