Author commentary

Oliver: Hi all! This page was ready to post a week ago, but it was unprocessed and not yet uploaded to the server. The reason we were late was because somebody broke into our house and stole the main computer that I use to upload the pages. I was able to reconstruct things in order to post this one, but it took some time to pull the settings out of backup. If you’re interested in the story of the break-in, I wrote about it in my Tumblr blog. Anyway, enjoy the page.

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.

I forgot, Sandy was Daisy’s best friend until Mike got together with her. Ouch. Methinks bonding time with Lucy.

Also, Sam, mike’s made it pretty clear that he has all he needs with Sandy and could give two sh!ts and maybe a f#ck about Lucy. Mike lives in his own head nowadays, and it’s just a bit sad that he called Lucy a parasite when that is exactly what he was to Lucy. Think about a parasite- it lives off its host until it’s no longer useful, then usually breaks its host apart. That’s what Mike did. He replaces Sandy with Lucy until Sandy came back. Then he hated Lucy because Sandy “persuaded” him to.

Surprise, surprise. Lucy didn’t show up! I just see this opportunity to say that not everybody is happy for Mike. I’m not, and neither is Lucy. I was rather fond of the brief moment of happiness between the two, but as they say, all good things must come to an end! Daisy doesn’t seem too happy for Mike either! Hmm, still not over Mike, are you? Now, now, Daisy, you already have a boyfriend! Question is- are you becoming bored with your relationship?

Daisy’s jealous? Oh wait, that’s right! Right right right, last time Sandy was around, Mike ignored everyone. Daisy, Lucy, Paulo, EVERYONE!

You know… I get this funny feeling that Mike doesn’t realize just how bad a person he actually is. And I mean that in a polite way. Quite often do we not realize just how much we’re hurting people by simply being ourselves. He doesn’t seem to realize he completely ignores his friends whenever Sandy pops into his head, but no one’s yet confronted him about it. The guys all think Sandy is pretty and the girls — most of them — just bite their tongue about the whole matter.

And this is how huge, dramatic blow-outs start…

Jeez, I’m sorry about the burglary guys. :( The good thing is that you’re safe, and that you guys stopped them from stealing everything, so that’s worth something, right? And plus, like you said, as long as the insurance covers it, it should be ok in the end. I’m glad you two didn’t get hurt.

In comic news, I still think Mike is being a jerk about the whole situation. He’s so focused on Sandy that he’s oblivious to everything that’s going on around him. He is, as Daisy said, a jerkity jerk jerk. JERK

You know, SuitCase….with the total Crap that goes on in my life, I don’t have anywhere to go to let my feelings out truly. Well, I prefer to express myself the way I can’t around others! I act like an intellectual because in the real world, everyone thinks I’m just some pitiless outcast mindlessly wandering without a purpose. Everyone hates me for my past, and refuse to forget it… For me, I’m the Augustus of MY story. I used to think life was just a walk through the park… I couldn’t have been further from the truth. Roxas, Trace, Grapist, whatever you wanna call me, I’m still the same person. I have my freedom, and you have yours. I have the RIGHT to comment on what’s on my mind! If you want to take away my privileges to post comments, so be it! But, you can’t take away my freedom. And if you can…..well, then what does life really mean to me?

Comment ID #207608

Jealousy or empathy (for Lucy) are the most likely causes for Daisy’s mood swing, but there is another possibility. At first, she looked surprised that Mike was going to see Sandy but not upset. It wasn’t until Mike said that Sandy was going to be in town that she was obviously sad. Daisy may be upset that Sandy didn’t tell her about the visit.

Sandy and Daisy were best friends before Mike stole her. It’s pretty clear that Sandy has moved on, but has Daisy? I know that time heals all wounds, but I still hear thirty-years-old men complaining about stuff that happened when they were five. Finding out about Sandy’s visit second hand may have opened up old wounds.

Seems like Daisy, one of the last morally upstanding characters here, simply can’t bring herself to be happy for her friend. That is a bit disguisting, not counting the fact that she already has someone.

Taeshi, We are starting to ask Ourselves: Why do We keep reading these? There’s a half-revealed plot thread about Alejandro’s incoming violent retribution that hasn’t been adressed in years. Are you stalling? Looks to us like the readership is a bit tired of the drama.

Dext February 3, 2012, 5:16 AM EST.

Comment ID #207614

Daisy has always liked Mike, and basically is with Abbey because she can’t have Mike. Its an unhealthy relationship but hey, she’s never had the best self esteem. I do find it funny though that people are angry at Daisy here - its understandable that she isn’t too happy that her longtime crush’s girlfriend is finally showing up.

Of course, the way Mike had been describing it, it sounded like she was actually coming to visit HIM specifically… and now we see its for a fashion show. I wonder if Mike is actually going to be able to spend any time with her - if not, I suspect he’s going to be rather upset.

I’m actually surprised more people find Daisy’s reaction to be a result of her affection for Mike. While I’m not discrediting the idea, I believe, for the most part, she’s upset because of Sandy’s sudden appearance. Sandy is her ex-best friend, after all. Poor Daisy.

Keys February 3, 2012, 5:29 AM EST.

Comment ID #207618

you didn’t think about it enough. it is possible that daisy is sad because sandy was her best friend but abandoned her when she found mike. you can’t say she isn’t happy because she still wants mike, ‘cause we don’t know what she is thinking, yet.

edit: yes, don’t generalise. I hate those who generalise on everything.
and you can’t speak for me.

I don’t think anyone likes to see their friend smile in this comic… I kinda have to agree with Dext on this one, although I suppose you could argue they’re all just kids and so are self-centered even in public… Still, I have hope for the story’s flow to go chugging along!

Poor Daisy. Her ex-best friend dating her former crush.

And I’m a bit disappointed in Sandy. I get why she’s busy all the time. But if she loves “Maishul” so much, I think she would be able to make time for a visit that isn’t related to work. Honestly, she can’t visit unless she’s part of a show in town? I find that hard to believe.

And of course there will either be no attention paid to the fact that Lucy is missing, or she made some excuse not to come. I wouldn’t blame her for that.

The more I see people’s reactions, the more I’m thinking Sandy’s not good for anyone at the moment. What’s going through your head, Daisy? You’re thinking about something important… It feels like you’re thinking about something other than your ex-best-friend or your ex-crush. Something about Sandy is really putting you on edge. Tessa isn’t comfy either.

**edit: Wow. I thought BCB was a place where readers didn’t congregate to tell people how horrible they are. Good going, guys. You really showed those uneducated, boring people.

Sorry you guys got robbed. If you ever see another robber, then unless you/someone else there know(s) self-defense/has got a weapon/something to defend yourself with, let the item(s) go. I know you may lose data/files, but just use backups. Insurance is there, and you may get lots of injuries.
Sorry, just dont want anything bad happening…

Of course Mike’s girlfriend makes Daisy sad, she has feelings for mike. She loves Abby but also loves Mike. But she doesn’t know what a jerk Mike was to Lucy. And I don’t think she knows Abby’s past much. So yes, there will be sadness caused by the mysterious girlfriend that no one really likes.

I’m trying to decide if she feels bad for Lucy, or if she feels bad for herself. I really think that the first is right.

I found this comic on a total act of curiousity. I saw your little ad for 5 pages straight on cracked and though “let’s see what this is”. Turns out that this comic is right up my alley. I’ve been reading it since I found it and I caught up in halfday. So yeah, I’ve just caught up with this.

I must say that you really know how to play with your cliches. Sometimes you do the predicted and sometimes you go off way. Based on this, I can say that when Mike leaves the table, he’ll be left alone.

But what I can’t find out is that how are you gonna end this up with LucyxMike. As a LucyxMike fan I seriously want to see how you pull that off… Well, I’m pretty sure you’ve given up on that though. Unless Sandy turns out much, MUCH more different than we imagined.

Great comic, it’s a shame I couldn’t get it sooner, or perhaps is it..?

Anyway since you asked for where we live and all in one of your old posts I’ll write it down now.

I live in Turkey and I’m 20 years old.
I love this serie.

Wow, that sucks. I’m sorry to hear that you guys were robbed, and under such strange circumstances, I mean it seems like the burglary happened in a very short amount of time. Whoever did it must have known what they were doing if it all happened in about 45 min. and they took a PS3 fat and a 27” computer. Considering the criminal took unique items, maybe they will show up fairly soon. I hope so anyway, crime sucks.

Comment ID #207707

I’m wondering if Daisy’s expression is due to the fact that she used to be friends with Sandy, and hence feels rather betrayed that she wasn’t invited to the show as well. I highly doubt it’s because she still isn’t “over him,” since she’s clearly extremely attached to Abbey.

I hope Sandy dumps his *** after the show. Doesn’t seem very in character, but a girl can dream.

As a character, I like Mike. As a person, no. He’s de-evolving from how he once was. Granted, he, Lucy and Sandy each had a contributing factor to the change. Mike is still responsible for his actions. He may be a jerk ***, but he has a conscious. I want some more growth from him. Sandy, dumping him, might actually bring about that growth. It’ll at least make him reflect on things. While he was in the right to express his emotions to Lucy, he went way overboard with it.

Lucy has shown to be growing herself. I hope this and the next coming chapters really zero in on that. With this arc, I really am curious about Abbey’s story. There’s a lot of mystery behind it. And has my ears perked. And I am curious to see how Mike and Sandy will mingle. Just because you have a great long distance relationship, doesn’t mean you’re going to mesh well together in person.

god mike, i bloody hate you, after what you said to lucy you are still all yay about sandy, how can you not regret it, you and lucy were best mates, she has saved your life on many occasions, and nearly lost her own! show a little respect, i hope you are happy, i wouldnt be suprised if lucy had killed herself by now!!!! just forget sandy, girls change, not always for the worse, but i bet she has changed a lot even since you saw her on tv, she will have new friends now, what if they dont like you, in fact, i hope they dont, i hope you see sandy as a bitch, and the you will be the one dependant on lucy, be nnice to her, you only get a few good friends, and, PAY ATTENTION TO DAISY FOR ONCE, it is obvious she still likes you, she will always love you, talking like that in front of her is not fair!!!! get a god damn heart!!!! lucy dear, i want you to tell everyone about what mike did, then we will see whose table they sit at. daisy, you need to learn that mike is scum, you have abby, and a lot more friends. dont waste your love.

Also, Lucy can be at the party. Just because she’s not around the usual crowd, doesn’t mean she isn’t there. has been or is on the way. Keep in mind, she’s also a loner. Considering what’s happened. She’s probably to herself.

Comment ID #207722

I wonder, though, if Daisy is feeling more concerned for Lucy at this point. She’s been very sympathetic toward her in previous chapters, especially regarding the situation with Mike. I could be reading it wrong, but this is definitely making me question Mike’s self-assured claims in the previous chapter that, should he Leave The Table, Daisy would be the first to follow.

Hm. I agree with Negacrow on Daisy feeling concerned for Lucy.

:Personal Interpretation: Perhaps with Mike’s Self Centered attitude about the whole Sandy situation maybe He is going to be the only one to leave the table and everyone else ends up staying at the table with Lucy? I really dislike Mike as well, if its not obvious.

arg is, no one even in the comics, happy to have sandy visit except mike. i mean look at the face of the former best friend. its so sad when that kind of news puts you down but it is understandable because daisy still has feelings for mike even though he rejected her, that doesn’t just go away.
maybe i’m seeing this all wrong and daisy is concern for lucy. and sandy is one of those pretty popular girls with a great personality but also has a real social problem and can’t really connect with others and keeps them at arms length.

@ Stryyder

Tae’s trying to take the story a little more seriously, however if foresight is any indication, this will likely be followed by a more lightly toned chapter… or not, considering we still have the whole play thing to go through. Dunno, maybe a few chapters down the line Lucy will bring Yashy with her and hilarity will ensue, guess we’ll just have to wait and see.


Until proven otherwise, im assuming that when you say “We” you mean a race of disgusting underground mole people nobody likes that lives directly above the Earth’s mantle and complains on the internet because they have no other way of venting frustration about how hot is down there, and when you talk about the readerbase, you continue to refer to your kind and your kind alone because im fairly certain your a minority of the living creatures on this world that seem to be having this issue.

Comment ID #207745

Dext: Sometimes a bit of drama is necessary for character and plot development and also to keep the audience entranced. Taeshi is pretty much combining all these factors. As far as Daisy goes and morality. Everyone has a selfish bone. Depending on the situation, it can either get bigger or shrink. There’s nothing wrong with feeling a bit hurt that your former crush is happy with his current relationship, who’s partner is also that of her once upon of time best friend. So it’s a double whammy for Daisy. Emotions are irrational and illogical, and can certainly go against our line of thinking. It doesn’t mean she’s immoral, just that her emotions are conflicted, whether she has someone (who she most certainly cares about) or not.

Her character can go under scrutiny if she tries to go behind Abbey’s back and get with Mike, which would be out of character, so unlikely.

Also, speak for yourself, not the rest of the audience.

People, Lucy is a tough girl. She’ll be down for a little while, but things will smooth out.

I mean, the whole Lucy thing is a beast unto itself, but he’s kind of in an “anyone gets in my way they’re gonna get it” attitude and it’s really getting on my nerves.

Also? @Raven, it’s probably because the scarf makes his head look off kilter. It needs to be schooched a little more to the left to actually connect with his neck at that angle.

Once again, hate towards character development. I’m not a fan of Mike’s handling with Lucy, but for Christ sake please stop looking at it in black and white.

You are free to express your feeling, but don’t simply attack a character like a flock of angry crows just because he yelled at your favorite girl. He had every right to be angry at Lucy’s abuse and her clinging, and he was wrong to let it go that far between them, along with seeing Lucy as comfort. And he was too wrong with how he took it far from expressing his anger to mental abuse. That’s it…let it go…wait for karma in some ways for both of them…I wanna focus on Abbey/Daisy chapter without past chapter drama Furious Abbey

Wow, i’m surprised there isn’t already 400+ comments worth of mike supporters and mike haters fighting each other, haha. But i’m glad we’re seeing a bit of context in the relationship between daisy/sandy (i omit mike because i think her emotion is more geared towards sandy). Hopefully, we’ll get the full story between those two (rather than fan speculation based on a few lines). honestly we don’t know all the details of why sandy split from daisy. we only have one side (daisy’s) of the story, it could be a different story from sandy’s side maybe they had a fight and daisy has repressed the memory, who knows.

Anyhow, to Suitcase, sorry to hear about the robbery. Hopefully the police catch the scumbags. I have to say though, it might be a good idea to get a security system, or at the very least get a pump action shotgun (unless the law prohibits personal firearms where you’re at). the reason i specify a pump action is because you don’t even have to load it for it to be effective. The simple “ker-shak” sound of cocking it will send most criminals running as it’s a very loud, very unique and easily recognized sound. That’s just my personal preference, an alarm system with a loud chime works too since most burglars are cowards and will run if they know there is a high risk of capture (as an alarm will have police there in a matter of about 3-5 minutes and criminals know this), it’s only the hardened thieves you have to worry about getting into a firefight with and they usually only aim at big scores (homes in wealthy neighborhoods). Also it would help in light of this incident to memorize the escape routes in your home, since some places the law has a high preferrence for civilians to choose flight over fight. Just a bit of advice from someone who takes home security seriously, take it for what you will.

Oooo! More drama! About the break-in, that really sucks. I sorta know how ya feel. Just today in fact, or maybe sometime last night, someone shattered the back window of one of our cars and completely broke the transmission switch by trying to steal the car like a f*cking idiot. There was shattered glass all over the passenger seat (where I sit) and the back seat. The thief rendered the car unusable, and to make matters worse, it was a rented car. (My dad works a car dealership and they offer a 50 dollar a month deal where you can rent used cars and not have to pay for insurance and such as an employee). So now, my dad has to pay for the shattered window and the transmission. This really ****** me off especially since he had to go get 2 teeth pulled and 3 root canals yesterday which costed 350 dollars and now he’s got to deal with this bull. Certainly not as bad as a home invasion, but still, not fun. I hope the police are able to apprehend the criminal and retrieve and/or reimburse you for all of your stolen property.

I saw Mike, saw that Lucy wasn’t there, then immediately wanted to wipe that smile off of his face. How can he act that okay about just crushing someone’s heart and self esteem to bits? It’s so… horrible.

I’m not sure if Daisy is sad because Mike is seeing his long lost lover and she still loves him, or because Sandy is coming and she knows she won’t get to see her.

I also wonder if anyone will even notice that Lucy isn’t here, considering the happened AFTER Mike found out about Sandy. I would be very shocked if she did come since she was so broken when we last saw her.

Oh, and sad to hear about the robbery. No one likes it when their stuff is stolen. Real bummer.

“I’ve got a ticket to see her” ???
So is Mike travelling to the fashion thing, and the ticket is for Mike to travel there?
Or does Mike need a ticket to the fashion show, and his version of seeing Sandy is seeing her work from a distance?
I just don’t understand how Sandy can be a rich travelling model and not be able to visit Mike. We know that Mike can’t afford to go, and we’ve been told that Sandy is always too busy. I just think that there’s something wrong with that scenario.

It’s a shame that you guys don’t live in the states, or that I live there.
I install and security systems, CCTV, EAS and other anti-theft devices for a living. Just installed a nice Honeywell wireless touchscreen security system in someone’s house the other day. Tons of door contacts and motion sensors all over the place, along with glass break sensors.

As far as we know, Mike hasn’t been a jerk to anyone lately aside from Lucy, and that was understandable given his years of putting up with her latching onto him. Bottling it up was a bad idea, but he’s just a kid. The only real issue with Mike is how naive he tends to be.

I assume Daisy is upset due to a combination of still crushing on Mike, and remembering how Sandy completely flaked on her in the past. Hell, Daisy could also be concerned that Mike is setting himself up for disappointment.

I am increasingly skeptical of Sandy. I had thought she was setting aside time for Mike, but instead she just so happens to be doing a show in the area. Love isn’t about convenience.

It’s called cutting off a toxic friendship. If Mike hesitates, he’ll just end up stuck with his parasite again. I can imagine he’d feel relieved. He finally stood up to someone that was basically a lifelong bully. Love doesn’t justify Lucy’s behavior.

Comment ID #207781

@the observer,
as far as your sandy skepticism, don’t you think it’s possible that her parents are controlling her? That would explain why she can’t make time for mike, because her parents keep pushing her to more and more modeling jobs to keep her away from Mike (think about it, sandy’s family is upper class, do you really think they would want Sandy in a relationship with someone in middle class). Love might not be about convenience, but if it’s the case that she has controlling parents, then coincidence is the only way those two are going to see each other. Also don’t forget they are both still in high school, it’s not like they can up and do their own thing…..yet.

@ The Observer:

You must have missed the entire explanation Mike gave Tess. If anyone was the parasite, it was Mike. Mike saw Lucy merely as a replacement to Sandy. He was giving as much as he was taking. It wasn’t until Sandy came back and gave him her view (which wasn’t even close to being accurate) that he began hating on Lucy. And as to why he was the parasite- didn’t he go back to Lucy when Sandy left? Didn’t he replace Sandy with Lucy? And when Sandy came back into his life, didn’t he break his relationship with Lucy off (such as it was) in the worst way possible, after they were actually having fun? I have a feeling that in the end Mike will be left alone and have to reevaluate who he is before he can even be in a serious relationship, and Lucy, after growing some more, will either end up with Paulo, Auggie (after he ends up betraying Alejandro), or someone completely new. If Sandy does break up with Mike, then it will be Lucy who gets to be the one to call him the parasite.

@ anyone who actually cares to read post’s the size of bloody essays,

I typically skim over the post’s, like a reader at FanFiction going through the literary equivalent of a f*ck*ng mine field with only the rare piece of cheesecake to make me want to continue, but this particular page compelled me to enter this maelstrom of ideas.

To be brief, on the relationship between Lucy, Mike, and Sandy, I think that two people are being little ticks, and one ain’t Sandy. When someone takes a phrase akin to “I don’t think I like this person” to mean “Utterly destroy the world of the little stalker (Lucy)”, I have to diagnose the person (Mike) with a severe case of crazy; we recieve suggestions all the time, but we actively decide how, if at all, we decide to convey them (and considering that he flipped his sh*t at somebody who could’ve f*ck*d up. And Lucy was frankly a self-decided Sociopath for a long time, and being exposed to crazy takes a while to heal from. Both Mike and Lucy are poisonous individuals, and Sandy, too, strikes me as quite a bit self-centered (one of the above posts makes it abundantly clear as to why I might think so).

I don’t expect a Messiah, nor do I even expect a bona-fide joyous ending from this. But I am the CynicaIDEALIST, so throw me a bone, sheesh.

first of all i doubt that mike is the parasite, he has plenty of friends, and even more girls drooling over him. lucy dose only hang around him while he is plenty capable of entertaining him self so lucy is definitely the parasite there.

however the concerns of mike zoning out over sandy is quite real, he has been, for the last……8 YEARS I’m guessing, been tempted by her voice, but left empty. he will definitely block out the world around him for a time, but how long? she is only visiting for a day.

@keios: As of now. Remember, he may yet lay that ultimatum down, and risk losing everyone. Word spreads in a school, and guaranteed, Lucy too has a lot of friends now, and many will side with her, and if it happens during school, then he will turn into a laughingstock.

Still think people need to get off Mike’s back about wanting to be happy for himself and not how everyone else wants him to be happy. Although I can’t help but feel Mike is just a side thing to Sandy and Mike may be on the self-destruction path of denial of it.

In addition, did you recover your PC from the thief, Taeshi? I’m sure if you have your MAC Address jotted down, the authorities could track it down somehow. I think there’s another way too to remotely find a PC, I forget what it is unfortunately…

That’s just it. He isn’t thinking for himself. He allowed Sandy to shape his opinion of Lucy. If he really did care for Lucy, he would have immediately leaped to Lucy’s defense and offered her the chance to meet Lucy before she passed judgment. That is why. Mike, as Abbey puts it, is only interested in helping the people he’s most interested in, and right now that’s Sandy, and it is and will affect him at a later date.

Mike and Lucy both relied on one another in a parasitic form. Yes they cared about each other, but they both benefited from each other’s bad habits. They were both enablers and abusers toward each other. Lucy used him as a crutch and also a punching bag. Mike used her dependency on him as a crutch and self validation.

Abbey’s parents are similar but worse. So with that being said, I await more background from Abbey with quiet glee.

A Visitor February 4, 2012, 9:54 AM EST.

Comment ID #207850

Knowing how everyone’s acting, they probably don’t even know what Mike has done to Lucy. Lucy holds things in and only comes out more to people she trusts and since Mike had to be a ******** and tell her that she shouldn’t trust anyone because they were only around her for her looks and that no one could ever like or love a person like her, I doubt she may be telling some people her issues any time soon. Adding to that, why would Mike tell them what happened unless he made Lucy seem like a horrible person because, after all, why would you tell them what you did to her and make yourself become a hated piece of ****.

Daisy is more than likely still holding out hope that Mike may gain feelings for her, despite the total rejection. Adding to that, since Sandy was her ex best friend when Mike came around, she’s probably recalling some of that past and making it hurt worse.
It’s kinda like if you have a boyfriend you love that cheats on you. Why do some girls still stay? They feel like they can’t get anyone better or still believe things can work out despite what had happened.
Daisy hasn’t moved past Mike or Sandy for that matter and though she’s happy with Abbey, some of her past is being dug up to where it’s killing her heart. Especially since Mike and Sandy are meeting in real life again, that would just prove how her goals of being with Mike now become unobtainable once more (not that she could obtain him but she had some hope)

I was hoping people in the comments would talk more about Sandy’s fashion show than Daisy’s reaction. Nope. When Mike said “Sandy’s coming to visit next week” in December I had the impression that it would be a longer visit. But he’s only going to see her backstage in reality.This makes more sense though.

And Daisy is probably thinking about a little bit of everything talked about here. But I think she wishes she could see Sandy too.

Yeah, Abbey called it when Daisy was being manipulated by Final Fantasy Cat. Mike’s too self absorbed to see anything properly. That Lucy had been improving herself, that he’s dilluded if he things droping her will go as smoothly as he thinks…. Honestly, that his relationship with Sandy is as golden as he views it is a bit of a gamble.

I kind of want to think that Daisy is thinking about Lucy’s hardship with this. I want this to be true, since it’d be a bit ideal. Daisy wouldn’t be “untrue” or “unfaithful” (towards Abbey) for feeling sorry for Lucy, but would, in some warped way, if she were a bit downtrodden for herself. It also would show that Lucy isn’t completely alone like she thinks she is, because who really wants the girl to be miserable, hm?

First off, I want to say how AMAZING the comic looks now. Before, it was just some scribbles on notebook paper, (and those didn’t even look that bad) then it turned into clean-cut, smooth lines and beautiful details, and then it came in color, and now HANDS, yes, HANDS, the bane of ALL artists, actually look like hands! Congratulation are in order.
Now, about the actual page.
Tess has less of an ‘agh my hand’ look and more of a ‘mentally scarred crazy-eyes’ look.
Sue looks a little… creepy…
And now, the focal point: Daisy. The Daisy I know would be like ‘YAAAY NEW PEEPS!’, however, that is obviously not the case. Dose she still have strong feelings for mike, and feels like she’ll never get him now? Did Lucy tell her what happened, and dosent know how to feel? Or maybe, going with the ‘feelings for mike’ theme, was she planning on dumping Abby and asking mike out? Though that’s probably the unlikelyest.

It’ll be very interesting to see how Sandy acts around everyone she doesn’t remember from third grade, especially Daisy and Lucy. It’ll also be nice to see some of her true character, since we’ve only ever seen how she acts towards Mike. That, and she hasn’t really been much of a character until recently, more of a plot device really.

Bad news Mike… she won’t come. Or maybe she will? Better not. I don’t want her. She could be a target of snowball attacks.

at first I thought that Mike was holding a nice refreshing beverage… but NO!!!… still with that ****ING god forsaken PHONE!!!!! Furious Abbey

try to take that **** away… and he’ll literally rip your heart out and EAT it in front of you! (which, by the way, I know is completely unrealistic)

unbelievable 8-D unbelievable 8-D unbelievable 8-D
I am baffled!

S0, disregarding Daisy’s obvious difference in attitude over the news…where’
s Lucy in all this? Did she even attend this party this year? Or is the recent mental trauma still in effect. :(

@ everyone-who-is-saying-daisy-is-jealous-because- she-still-likes-mike:

She is in love with Abbey. She is upset for Lucy. Lucy is one of her best friends, and she knows how heart broken Lucy is because of Sandy. She knows this is going to make Lucy upset, so she isn’t acting excited because she is worried about how Lucy will react when she finds out.
Oh, and there is also the fact that she may not want to see Sandy again after she 1) abandoned her when they were best friends to be with mike, and 2) then stole the heart of her childhood crush.

Aren’t we all going to do a happy little dance if Sandy’s meeting up with him just to tell him that it’s over and he should move on.

Nice page , arts peachy as always
i find this moment interesting as it shows that even if she is in a happy relationship Daisy cant get over her love for Mike
also i find hilarious how many people are making everyones reaction to be about chacters relationship to lucy or trying to turn Sandy into a fiend just because she said that a friendhip that only hurts her boyfriend was a horrible thing, or that mike should make a desition , he already made , its hilarious only first page mike apears in the chapter and the comment drama restarts-sigh-
well exelent chapter so far , keep it up~

Arhol February 5, 2012, 3:09 PM EST.

Comment ID #207966

You know, fair play to Mike. I think usually he cares a little too much about the feelings of others before he opens his mouth; now he’s finally saying whatever the hell he damn well likes, good on him. I think Lucy absolutely deserved the treatment she got from Mike, people like her (abusive for the sake of it and blaming her behaviour on her past, rather than finding a better way to ‘right’ it, typical stunted teen!) need a massive wake up call some time, and it’s never pretty. If he had tried to break it to her gently, she’d have probably punched him in the face and overpowered him into staying quiet. Mike has every right to be happy about seeing Sandy, regardless of anything else, I think.

I don’t know what’s going through Daisy’s head, as it could well be a few things, but I bet Abbey picks up on that expression. Could be fireworks, eh? I must say I really like Sue’s head angle in panel 2…for some reason it makes her pop out and suddely be more believable and less flat, more so than any other character on the page. I think it’s just the angle you chose. Either way, not bad.

Jackspanner February 5, 2012, 3:16 PM EST.

Comment ID #207968

I agree with Jackspanner, but you can’t exactly blame people for not liking Mike. He said some things that crossed the line, and yet can you really say what Mike said nicely? It’s what was needed.

Many smiles in this page and a happy Mike XD. If he’s gushing this much, you can tell that he’s excited for Sandy’s arrival :)

Personally i think the biggest slap in the face to almost all of the characters would be is sandy shows up with her boyfriend.
But then again i am use to this kind of get ****ed male character plots.

Uh-oh… Daisy losing her smile is NEVER a good thing. Bad times are surely ahead… I still hold out a miniscule amount of hope for Mike, but that ember is slowly burning out. I hope something happens that will turn everything around to everyone being happy.

Comment ID #207982

@Jackspanner, Mike had a point until he chose to turn around and attack her insecurities and try to completely isolate her. And if he was so bothered, why did he not say anything beforehand? Lucy would have listened. Mike did have a right to voice his opinion, but flat out attacking her? There was the line, and he crossed it.

I don’t think it’s because she still has feelings for Mike. I think it’s because she’s noticed what a dick he’s become about Sandy, and she thinks that either a) he’ll become even more obsessed and moody or b) he’ll be disappointed with her in person and be even more moody.

Or maybe she just wants to tap that.

Food for thought: Why do I get the feeling that the only reason Mike is still nice to Daisy is because he thinks she’s completely over him, because she’s dating Abbey? That if she wasn’t dating someone else, or she was still sowing signs of liking him, he’d be just as cruel to her as he has been to Lucy?

I don’t think that’s a valid comparison. What Mike expressed was not disdain for Lucy liking him romantically. He flipped his **** because she acted like she couldn’t live without him. After years of her being an abusive bitch.

I think he’d just be a bit more awkward with Daisy and maybe try to downplay the “Sandy is coming!” thing in her presence.

@Maverick, well, back when she was acting upon liking him(Back in the “Awakening”arc) he was showing the early symptoms of Douchebaggery that he had been showing with Lucy just after he rejected her, so, That’s another place where I get my hypothesis.

I really have to agree with you here. As hard as it is to admit Mike has really been a douche bag for quite some time, even before he was a jerk to Lucy. I honestly hope Sandy kicks him off the high horse he seems to think he’s on.

This page (and others) proves how much of a low opinion Mike has about is friends. He uses Lucy to get close to the group by being nice to her and subconsciously substituting her for his precious Sandy. Then, he doesn’t get involved in anyone else’s life except to have that narrowed vision “who gives a rat’s petunia,” attitude. And, now he’s expecting everyone to be happy for him because his Mary Jane of a girlfriend is coming to town for a fashion show. He knows Daisy has issues with her. He knows that she told him that Sandy isn’t who he thinks she is, and she knows he couldn’t care less until he’s hit in the face with the evidence. I just really hope, and I know I’ve said this before, but I just hope that Mike grows up soon.
