Author commentary

Veronica: Hello! It’s back to me again with the commentary! Oh no, gotta be clever again ;___; It was fun when Souppy was doing it for me haha

Anyway, new chapter! And nothing much is happening at the moment! So I guess you gotta see what’s bugging Tess so much!!!!

(Even though chapter descriptions usually tell you what’s the score)

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.

OOoo! New chapter! Exciting! We really haven’t seen much of Tess lately. Can certainly relate to her feelings… my final year too (well, except if I end up staying for grad school).

I think that she should lighten up a little. She seems to at least made peace with Jessica and Rachel. And it’s her senior year, we haven’t seen the party Tess that we used to see. I miss her.

Oh my, she looks upset… Or at least depressed.

Perhaps it’s because she’s been spending less time with the few people she called friends? It’s been a while since I saw her hanging out with the main cast…

Comment ID #182477

This comic is getting darker, and more depressing. It’s like no one is happy anymore. I think I’ve lost track of the time frame in here too. Did the school play ever happen? I can see that the writing is aiming toward more serious problems, the kind that teenagers experience as they get older; the feelings of being forever alone, the angst that coming from self discovery. It would be nice to see a smiling face once in a while though.

I’m finally used to the new style though.

Loving the style with Tess.
It seems that we’re taking a gander that departed characters now making their comebacks.
Unfortunately, I’ve got the sinking feeling that Paulo and Tess action might flourish a bit from this chapter, but nonetheless I’m ecstatic for it’s unraveling.

What could possibly be bothering Tess…

Fade away huh, so Tess might be getting out of the comic. :/ To be honest I’m gonna miss her kinda, but oh well these things happen. Really wonder what happened to her heart shaped necklace though, I was expecting it to have some significance, oh well.

Question about how the background is black at the top but fades into the school hallway as you get lower. Do you use pain for that? At the roof of the hallway, there seems to be a slightly moist paint covering it. It doesn’t look too much like that’s what you’ve done, but it kinda does. Did i say that right? Oh well.
Also, whats she staring at?
Maybe she’s looking at the communist recycle poster?

Gee, Tess really isn’t looking so good… I don’t mean as in drawing style! I just mean she looks kind of sick-feeling or something…Obviously something’s eating at her. Perhaps leaving it all behind, moving on. Curiosity is now piqued.

A mi la verdad me gustan mas tus comentarios veronica, los de soupy… me aburren un poco porque son mas tecnicos o mas relacionados con como fue hecho el comic y no en esencia lo que te presenta o como tu que nos dices algo gracioso, eso me agrada mas.
Claro esa es solo mi opinion n__n

It’s another short chapter… it’s like tae is trying to tie up loose ends. Or set the stage for the next long chapter.

It doesn’t take much empathy to understand why Tess is so miserable though… Paulo is taken and hasn’t thought of her in ages, she doesn’t seem to be hanging out with the main cast as often, she’ll be leaving school soon… she may have made peace with her enemies, but what else…?

wow, so tess wasn’t just thrown away into the wind just yet, huh?

going by the title though… i’m going to assume this chapter will erase tess from the minds of all the other characters in the comic.

tess is a fan character, right? so she’ll be vanishing after this, i assume.

hope you dedicate a chapter to mccain if you plan on taking him out of the comic, too… he deserves one!

tess has definitely changed… when did she get that star collar? i don’t think she had it last time, did she?

did she cut her hair? it looks shorter…

poor girl… i hope her leaving causes paulo so much agony that he decides to kill himself. ;)

@Arampagin hobo: She cut it? One of the most common ways to indicate a change is to change the look. She used to be a commonly dressed jerk with long hair. Now she’s a commonly naked nice girl with short hair.

http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c19/p3.html She was introduced post-change and had short hair, nice habits, and no clothes already.

“Fade Away”…Fade? Away? *Gasp* I swear to god, Taeshi, if you get rid of Tessa, i will forever hate your beautifully made, story-filled comics! >( *edit* ok, i wont hate you or BCB, and if Tess needs to go then atleast bring her back. she deserves that much.

WAIT A MINUTE! What happened to Tess’ “key hole heart” necklace? Did she wear this new one before or am I just now noticing the necklace change on her? :x

I really love how much more expressive the faces, especially the eyes, are in the new style. It definitely shows growth in the artist’s skill.

Poor Tessa. She kinda deserved the first year of it, but after that she shoulda been allowed to start over and be accepted as good.

@Panda Her name (at the bottom of the page and is said multiple times around the website) is Veronica Vera, otherwise mostly known as Taeshi, the creator of this wonderful web comic. I share same thoughts on the book, as soon as I gather some spare cash I’m definitely ordering a copy of my own :)
Oh and if you’re new to the comic and didn’t know her name, I apologize if any snarkyness was apparent in my response D:

Her breasts look a bit…. odd in the last panel, to be honest. But I’m looking forward to it none the less ^^

^Someone clearly hasn’t read everything. Kizu’s removal was a reference, but was canon… It’s called “Sayonara, Kizu… The Dog” and everything.
