Not to critique, but why didn’t you have Abbey just say “sir”, it extends the same level of respect and avoids the issue of last names? Having him go to mumbling for the sake of avoiding last names seems a bit off putting and out of character for a usually confident character. But it could just be me, just a humble suggestion from a reader.

Damn, Abbey’s dad looks like a sex offender/hobo in that 3rd to last panel.

Not that that’s a critique of the drawing, that’s actually probably the sleezy look Taeshi was going for.

Well, unless the BCB version of a friendly man-on-woman hug includes ***-squeezing, I think it’s safe to say that Abbey’s dad be cheatin’.

nothing like thinking back on your father’s cheating ways when going out with your girlfriend to a party to have fun. :/

abbey needs to get over it, his father was a cheating, abusive *******, either hunt him down and kill him, or forget he exists, no point in letting some worthless ******* ruin your life even after he’s long gone.

well, on a lighter note… daisy is still cute. :smirk:

It’s been mentioned many times before but I, too, love the present-flashback transition.

On a side note, how is Daisy’s last name pronounced then? “Daisy Dotdotdashsquiggle”? “Daisy asdjgdfhghhh”? “Daisy mumblemumble”?

Also, as if brutally beating your wife wasn’t enough, Abraham YOU…YOU…CHEATER!!!! CHEATER! CHEATER! CHEATER! CHEATER! (cue an army of highschool girls appearing out of nowhere to beat the [bleep] out of him) Taeshi-sama, could you please make that happen?

Nothing is more unforgivable than cheating on your partner; even more so when you’re stupid about it. Clearly he is within walking distance of Abbey’s school so getting caught is just THAT much easier. I mean seriously, bro? Couldn’t just choose a dirty motel room three towns over like a classy person? :nope:

i KNEW IT! Totally called the cheating ******* plot twist. So he’s an abusive, short tempered, child endangering, whack job with infidelity on the side. Can i get a Coke with that?

Are we going to have a mental breakdown scene with Abbey at the party? :( He’s reliving these memories and it cannot be good. When he relives the climactic memory, I dunno what’s gonna happen, especially in front of everyone.

Michael S. January 27, 2012, 3:48 PM EST.

Comment ID #206839

Taeshi, you really need to distinguish between “right now” and “flashback” a lot better. It gets confusing.

And yeah, of course the guy cheats. Abusive a-holes like him always do. They have no respect for anybody or anything, and their sense of their own male power makes them feel like the rules don’t apply to them.

I hate guys like that.

Comment ID #206848


I really don’t see how you can find it confusing. The art style changed a bit, Abby was no longer wearing his sweater, he looked like a little kid, his dad was there, and he had a backpack on, not to mention the thick black borders, which I am fairly sure Taeshi only uses for flashbacks. (Not positive on that one though.)

But really, totally can’t wait for more pages. This promises to be quite the emotional chapter. :D

I’ll come back someday, to read the finished comic, but having consumed other media and realized that all parties are wrong, I have no heart in the matter. Let the stones fall where they may. I will no longer hope, just enjoy.

@The False One - I haven’t seen anything to indicate that Sandy is a bitch. She actually seems pleasant, based on the chapter focusing on her. Mike was just overreacting and being abusive in “December”, even if his actions were necessary. It was his problem, not Sandy’s; she was just concerned.

Would Abraham Sr. cheating on the wife he beat surprise anyone all that much? If I remember it right, Tessa and Alec are the only characters we have full last names for.; Michael’s last name begins with an “S” and Katherine’s with “He”.tess, Alec =

Tessa = Tess, Alec = McCain, Michael = Mike, Katherine = Katie
Alec McCain, Tessa Canning
Chapter 54 provides the name hints I do recall. Last names for the two above was logic for Alec and the tvtropes character page for BCB gave me Tessa’s.

Hoheh :x stops talking now…

@the false one,
well, the thing is that there is a difference between coming to a conclusion and creating a theory based on speculation. Conclusions are based on evidence and facts, a theory is based on an idea with no evidence to back it up. That’s what we are trying to say, there is no evidence to support your conclusion, therefore it’s not a conclusion. it’s a theory, just saying.

This is one of the few websites I stay up for anticipating updates. I like reading other people’s comments while I wait. And I actually find it more fun when the update doesn’t occur on time, it gives me some excitement while I refresh the page or while I’m waiting for class to end if the update happens to be particularly late. I don’t mind if Taeshi ever needs any extra time, I’m just happy to be able to read the comic! Just 3 more hours to go! 8-D I can’t wait to see how Abbey resolves his dilemma, maybe Daisy can help him forget all his problems while at the party.

@Purple pintapuss,
That didn’t count as a chat session, since it was related to the comic. When Taeshi says chat session, she means talking about personal issues, daily matters, etc. If you’re having conversations about issues in the comic, predictions for the comic, story related thoughts, and anything you want to say as long as you can prove that your conversation connects to the comic, then it is okay.

A question for Teashi: do you ever pay attention to what people comment? Like, if lots of people say “go LucyXMike!” do you make more Lucy and mike romance?

Comment ID #207001

I think I read somewhere that either Taeshi or Suitcase said noone was reading because noone likes Abby. I’m pretty sure we proved that wrong, as enough people refreshed at the same time to melt the server and give me the 500 error.

@Wow Taeshi always pays attention to the comments on the comics, but why would you ask an author to change their story to suit your own ideas (likes and dislikes)? It’d be like going to a novelist and saying “I didn’t like this, if you change it, it would be much better”. The only difference is that webcomics are written in a sequential form. This doesn’t mean that Taeshi doesn’t know what direction the comic is going to take. I personally ship Lucy and Mike, but I’m content to see what Taeshi has in store for her readers, rather than tell her how to do her job.
On that note, people really need to learn a bit of patience when waiting for updates. The number of “when are you going to update” complaints is really tiring, why don’t you find something more constructive to do with your obviously free time?
