And the pieces all fall into place.
Abby got his dad arrested for beating his mom. So Abraham decisides, why not a little revenge. So he says that, and BOOM. Psychological torture. Ruined psyche and childhood.
Thanks, petty dad!
Now, for some stupid stuff.
Panel 1: in the background: officer schnoodles, reporting for duty.
Also panel one: the lady: we’ll, it’s good that shes not really a bad guy in this. She knows what she’s done. She probably didn’t even know he had a wife, with his past performance.

Everything he must feel, the burden of it. “Maybe dad could of sorted it out, maybe this is my fault” Well its NOT. His father disgusts me, in every way shape and form.

I have always had the fortune to live in a very caring family, due to our close ties from always moving. I cannot imagine, or even able to come close identifying with people that had to live with this.

Taeshi, this was a strong scene, despite what people thought about Abbey getting a beating, this was far more damaging. The image itself speaks to the gravity of the situation, the fact that mere words are what continue to echo in his mind, probably over-riding any potential happy memories of his father, and having to put on a tough front for his sister, when he probably still blames himself to this day (as said by his foster mother earlier.)

On a side note, a lot of people had been commenting on your art style when you first changed it up, I do not know how you do it, but you make it have an almost aquarelle-like finish and water color styled quality when digitally painting, which is looks as good as when you do use them =).

Thanks for continuing to make this awesome comic, and for keeping me sane this semester as I pull all nighter after all nighter to get my assignments done!

This comic, Bittersweet Candy Bowl, isn’t at all a small extention of some of the feelings you have, is it?

Either way, with the darkness of these latest chapters, I really hope you’re getting hugs. Because not only do you deserve, them, but you probably need them.

At any rate, Abbey needs hugs, too.

Yes Abbey, you ruined your family by being a good person and doing the right thing (even if the right thing to do was the hard thing to do, and showed an immense amount of courage). How dare you! You’re such a good person it makes your father look bad, and we all know brain cells and a sense of justice ruins families!

There he goes again; blaming everyone else BUT himself! You think you’re innocent of this ****, don’t you? Huh? No, Abe Sr. He didn’t “ruin” the family, YOU did! Re-learn how to take responsibility, and grow some balls you *****, before someone makes you their bitch!

Sarge March 9, 2012, 12:42 AM EST.

Comment ID #211415

Now I’m convinced, Abbey Sr. doesn’t love his family, at all. His eyes say it all. The way he was looking at ABBEY said it all. He accepts he’s been caught, but prefers to blame Abbey for his going to jail, not because he doesn’t want to own up to it, but to leave him a guilt he’s not responsable. Sr. wants Abbey vulnerable, maybe even to psychologically mess with Abbey more when he gets out without having any direct/or proximal control over him when/if they meet again? Omg, It would be horrible.

Well, with the way how Janet talked to him about the incident, we can assume that what Abbey took to heart what Sr. said that day, and this page confirms it even more! That *******. But its been years since then, and Abbey’s grown up as best as he can, I know he has. That makes me feel like he’s strong enough to stand firm when a future confrontation with his father arrives.

And now that the pages have increased, I kind of wonder if his mother manged to talk to Abbey before he went into foster care with Molly, or was she unconcious the entire time? Did she promise to find them when things settled down? Or were Abbey and Molly just hoping she’d come back for them? I don’t blame them, they really love her, and she did seem like a good mother to them back then.

Sorry to disagree with you and all but I think that Abby’s dad is just a butt that being said I can see where your coming from with not knowing the character at all but honestly I don’t care much for cheaters especially if they beat people.
That all being said I just wish Abby would figure out that his dads a butt and just wanted to blame someone. Nice going dad blame the kid. Anywho hopefully the reunion will be happier and not all “hey mom how are you…. And why Is dad here?”.
That would be so bad yet somehow not unexpected.

Jo Taeshi, I have to admit I’m kinda confused now. When Abbey’s mom was hit by her father (and it was the first (in front of the kids), maybe, because I see it as the reason Abbey called the police), Molly was just like “Oh, did she fell down?”. I think Molly is very emotional, so if she knew what was going on, she would have reacted in another way.
So then, why did she overreact when Janet was “hit” by her husband? (I guess they are married, can’t remember right now.)

Naity March 9, 2012, 1:50 AM EST.

Comment ID #211435

Yea, this is typically what happens in this situation… One of the kids calls the parent out on their ****** behavior (to say the least). And then the parent goes into denial and blames the kid, not themselves. i kinda figured this is how it would turn out…

Just can’t accept that you’re at fault, can you? Yes, Abbey had to do this; what, did you actually think with all that domestic violence before, and now this, you could get away with it? Oh no, you are mistaken. You sir, are the fool. Justice prevails in the end.
So unless you have a justifiable reason to put the blame on Abbey, shut up and admit that you’re the one who single-handedly ruined your family, and that all he did was to ruin your outlook of it. Everything you say can and will be used against you in the court of law.

Part of why it sad when it happens……you trusted them with the ability to utterly ruin you……..and they go and actually use it to stab you deep in the heart and carve your mind up something fierce =\

Is….. Abraham Senior supposed to be an Alley Cat?….. ( the stereotypical style of one ) -shot-

honestly I’m not even sure how to respond to such a low blow….
surely thinking back now Abbey knows it wasn’t his fault though….
he knew back then that what his father was doing was wrong, and he knows even more-so now. I can see how he might feel bad about what happened to his mom though, since Little-Abbey would have thought “If I hadn’t told her about him cheating, she wouldn’t have gotten mad at him, and he wouldn’t have knocked her out with a ( lamp? ).” ( and I’m sure he was more violent than usual with his extreme rage-fit….. ) to boot, I suppose he could extend it to what finaly split the family apart, ( ie they were technically together even as bad as things were ) but ofcourse he’d have been lying to himself to let it keep going…. ( because redundantly they weren’t really a family )

deep down he probably knows he still did what was needed, and that it was inevitable…. but I can see how he’d blame himself for the first part, ( and maybe the second ), and feel guilty. :\ <3

at least he’s got such wonderful adopted/foster parents and Daisy….
his sister is amazing too, but I’m sure it upsets him sometimes, with her being so innocent….. because he doesn’t want her to get hurt….

I do love the irony of the use of “Abraham” without technical specification. ofcourse the father is blaming the son, but since there’s no specification, we could reapply it to him.

Is his wife constantly switching from really fat to really skinny or is that his mistress with the cop?

“So then, why did she overreact when Janet was “hit” by her husband? (I guess they are married, can’t remember right now.)”

The cops probably explained to her what happened enough that she’s getting completely mixed signals from everything couples do together.

Comment ID #211465

a quote of myself from the previous page:
I wonder what will happen in the last 3 pages. they are “suspiciously” too few…

Taeshi’s comment on this page:
Oh yeah, and the chapter is actually 48 pages. It took me a while to work that out!


I’m sure that Derp will explain this to you in a better way but…
you can’t just say “Abby’s dad is just a butt”. nobody is a butt without a reason (mental issues, bad childhood etc.).
If he was a butt (that is, if he wasn’t convinced he did the right thing by hitting her wife), he wouldn’t have tried to explain calmly to abbey why he hit her. he has “simply” a twisted conception of reality\what is good and what is evil.
now I’m not saying he has no fault for what he did, but it’s more complicated than “he’s just a butt”.

…In a few ways, I don’t necessarily disagree with what Abraham said to Abbey about him ruining the family. Granted, the father is a lowlife ******* who deserves to go to jail, but if Abbey had never said anything, I have to wonder if he would still have parents today. Or would Abraham definitely have killed the mother…? I don’t know, but that’s a difficult one.

That brings up a good point. Abraham clearly feel out of love with the mother. But did he ever show any really affectionate love towards Abbey and/or Molly? Ever? Are there ANY happy memories Abbey has of him at all?

Oh, the Chapter is actually 48 pages. Cool. :)

Well… I suppose it is all Abby’s fault that you went and had an affair, then beat your wife, then tried to get away with it, and ended up getting caught.

Obviously this is all the small child’s fault, no doubt about it.

O and calling the police to make shure u never have to do that again. How could he do that u were so on top of everything in your family. Being a dictator and putting your women in line with broken glass and a broken heart. Abby realy messed up the family because u know after u cheated on your wife, and after u beat your wife, and after u made your wife BLEED. U had it so undercontrol. God if abby didn’t get u arressted u’d be at home after a long day of ****ing your girlfriend, to come home to your obedient wife, who i’m shure wouldn’t have come to the conclushion, that u need to DIE, and poising u during dinner. God damn abby. Abby should be more like u. O wait a minute NO HE ****ING SHOULDN’T! Son of a bitch going to jail is the best thing that ever happend to this family. Your son showed great courage and u ****ing scarred him for life. I hope u get furried in that jail preferably by a Woof named bubba, and then beaten and told u coused this all on your own.

Oh, now I get it.

Abraham is one of those high and mighty types who think they cannot do wrong. Everything he does is justified, everything has a reason and everything is logical.

Now I cannot help but be morbidly curious what the hell kind of logic tells him that it’s ok to cheat on his spouse and be angry with HER when he’s caught. I’m almost certain that it’s sheer, blind, limitless, selfish greed, but then that would be simple. Then again, sometimes things are just that simple if you want to convey something that everyone can agree is evil.

I can tell you one thing. This happens. There are abusive people out there who think that they are absolutely perfect.

what flame war? he can’t say anything to me, since he’s completely wrong.
I don’t know if “foolish” sounds worse than I think, but I meant “childish\ingenuous\immature” (I can’t remember the right term, even in my language >.<), a person who can’t understand the obvious. it has not an offensive meaning. I hope I conveyed the idea.
if I actually insulted him, he would have all the reasons to talk-back, but since I didn’t…

So I like to think of this as abbeys dad saying it to himself like the weirdo scumbag he is instead of abbey. :D

Even though it’s made up, still makes me want to reach through and strangle the h—- out of the dad. That’s seriously messed up. Poor Ab.

Yeah, and to think I used to hate Final Fantasy Cat.

The thing is… there a thousands of real people just like this in the world.

Completely selfish, absolutely self-justified, utterly malign. Dumping all their negative emotions into their loved ones .

It is our job as a society to find them and stop them.

Abbey didn’t ruin your family, Abraham.

You did.

The very second when you first struck your wife, the woman you pledged to love and care for for the rest of your life, you sick evil *******, that’s when you brought not only yours, but your innocent wife’s, your bright and charming son’s, and your young and growing daughter’s life crashing down. You deserve a moment to think about the cruel and horrible things you’ve done—but only a moment, because then it’s back to burning in the hottest depths of the realm of damnation with you, you demented ****.

@Jade you took the words right outta my mouth. I can’t believe his father blamed his son for something he did?

So that’s Abbey’s tragic story. I think that’s everyone now, right?
We’ve seen Paulo’s, Abbey’s, Tess’s, Mike’s, Lucy’s, we might’ve seen Daisy’s but i was too busy not caring, perhaps next is Sandy. Sandy’s better be a god damn Shakespearean tempest of angst and pain to make up for the **** storm she’s been cooking up. After that, CONCLUSION! ~dun dun dun~

I’ve been in Abbey’s shoes before… My Dad’s ex-wife (Not my mom, the woman he was seeing after they separated and before they got back together) did this to ME before she left… Every time she’d leave… She left a lot when I was in elementary school… And she would always blame me… Her exact words were always ‘Well there you go, Artemis. Your Mommy and Daddy are gonna get back together. That’s what you want, isn’t it? You’ve made me have to leave. You ruined this family. It’s your fault.’… Every time…

Actually dear father, I wish you to know,
during this season, when the icy snows blow,
it was that day, back then, when you caused all this hell,
but I still want to say Merry Christmas as well.
You’re a damn scum on the planet,
you have no shame,
you made me go to Janet,
and I changed my own name,
I saved all I could,
and became a new man,
I did what I should,
and forged this whole plan.
And now that my mother has been found once more,
and I have found a girlfriend who isn’t a *****,
who you traded my mother for so long ago,
just leave my memories, just leave me and go.

Abbey must get his good looks from his mom, ‘cause he certainly doesn’t get ‘em from his dad.

So sad that this sort of thing happens in the real world too. As if a child looking out for their beaten parent could possibly be at fault for “destroying the family”. The abuser destroyed it the moment their fist came into contact with their partner.
