FACE GRAB! Solve all your problems with a random face grab. Some people hug, some people kiss, but nothing beats a surprise face grab. Also, notice how before, they’re almost never wearing clothes but here, they both happen to be.
I can just imagine Mike saying something like, “Sorry, I thought you might have been Paulo in a mask trying to mess with me.”

Speaking as someone currently in a long-distance relationship, this is just literally the dream. Not immediately making out, not even immediately hugging and getting all emotional, just being NEXT TO each other.

As such, I find this page to be adorable ^_^

I can’t believe how cute this is! I think Mike and Sandy are a good fit, in that they are both pretty optimistic about their relationship and seem to have a lot in common as far as humor and personality (excepting how Mike acts with Lucy).

But I am still a hardcore LucyxMike supporter, and though I would never wish for the end of this adorableness, I want Lucy and Mike to at least be friends, if not more, in the (hopefully near) future.

Mike’s not cute.
but the concept is cute. XD
I’m not sure how well my boyfriend would react if upon seeing him again, I randomly grabbed his face though. :P

then again….. knowing me, he might not find it that strange…. -wince- <;^;>


Sandy, assuming she’s as sweet as she seems, deserves BETTER than Mike.
also, Lucy understood and appreciated Mike—- she was just afraid of getting abandoned again. which, oh by the way, guess what? -happened as soon as she tried to be honest and streight about her feelings.

( I didn’t mean to have a tone there, I just realized it might seem as if I did. sorry x3;; )

Dont get me wrong, I still think Mike is a cad and a jerk for being so cruel to Lucy. This is why he doesn’t deserve Sandy. However, when I say Sandy deserves Mike, Im talking about his extreme devotion to her. Because lets face it, despite Mike being downright horrid to poor Lucy, and being an overall douche in this area (which I CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH! MIKE YOU ARE A DOUCHE FOR MAKING LUCY SO VERY VERY VERY SAD!!!), he still shows absolute devotion to his girlfriend, Sandy, even after not seeing her for years, and even though he had a chance to pull a man ***** Paulo and just sleep around behind Sandys back (which Im sure he could have done with Lucy in he emotionally vulnerable state). Mike has shown absolute devotion to Sandy, and THAT (not particularly Mike himself) is what Sandy deserves for being nothing but caring and sweet (no matter what kind of hate she gets over coming between Mike and Lucy)

And so, Mike discovered his dearest Sandy, and turtled.
Book of Bowl, 70:11
And Mike reached out to his love, and, upon feeling contact, discovered he was indeed not higher than the Empire State. Sandy and her courter then tickled each others cheeks lavishly, and a good time was had by all.

I think too many people do the “the creator of X is god” joke for it to be funny anymore. After seeing two hundred posts of “ALL HAIL NOTCH”, this tends to be your opinion. :/

Not that this comic isn’t one of the best works I’ve ever seen, I just think the joke is getting old.

Well this is a very positive sign. Now let’s hope this isn’t just a nostalgic crush and they’re actually good for each other. Although, somehow I just know this won’t last, since the comic is kind of all about drama… :\ I just hope whatever hand of god-type force pushes Mike and Lucy back together is believable and sympathetic. Judging from the entire comic to date I know I have faith Tae will do the right thing and :unsure: x :D Mad Lucy x 8-) will prevail in the end, right? …right? D:

yes, while Mike needs to turn his devotion down a notch, ( just enough that he’s not treading on all the rest of the universe, XD ) it is good that she found someone with true devotion. x3 since it’s easy for people to abuse personalities like hers #^#

…Fuuuuuuuu- I’m for Mad Lucyx :unsure: yet I find myself to be enjoying :Dx :unsure:

Anyway I predict Sandy meeting everyone including Lucy, who will be oddly nice to her and completely ignore Mike, Sandy will go to their school for the time she is there and some incident will lead them back to Rape-Cat from the Bar Encounter. Augustus, who took notes for Rape-Cat about each of the main characters, will notice the importance of Sandy and tell Rape-Cat (Who is likely his brother) who will then use her as a lure to get his revenge on “Green-Eyes” (Mike) who kicked his *** with Lucy’s help. During the fight someone may die, Augustus will step in to protect Daisy or something, and they all get away, then Sandy, feeling Mike isn’t as good a guy as she though, will break up with him causing him to be depressed, then either Lucy speaks up for him to prevent the break up, or she doesn’t and Mike ends up alone forever regretting his harsh actions towards Lucy, who considered him to be her first and only friend.

…..I hate myself for thinking this far ahead and possibly ruining the story for myself. ._.

Dear Mike,
Please review Chapter 15, and have this realization again: You are fawning over Sandy, and treating Lucy “Like crap” (in your own words) {Also, Lucy should beat you over the head with your cane again until you realize that literally, AS SOON AS SANDY SHOWS UP, you go back to emotionally abusing Lucy. *******.}

Yay! I’ve been waiting for this moment since I started reading BCB. I really love their chemistry together, at least so far. Though this has been awfully happy and I’m beginning to become very wary. I hope this is a happy chapter to make up for the past few emotional ones. I mean I know this is going to have a heartwrenching ending. This comic is bringing me back to my memories and I am very happy for that, but I know it’ll also bring back memories of the departure when that happens. I really feel for Mike, I always have even through December and the chapters that led up to it, and this chapter is letting me connect all the more. I was lucky I had my best friend along to distract me on the drive back, poor Mike only has Haley. Cruel. Uncaring. Haley. But until then I wonder what horrific fate will befall our young hero? Tune in next time on BCB-Z.

Why do people keep saying that Sandy looks like Lucy? Puting aside the obvious hair thing, they have different eyes, face fur (Lucy has the locks of fur, Sandy has the fluffy cheek fur), and body structure (Lucy is very curvy, while Sandy is petite). Does no one see past the white fur?

Also, this page was all kinds of adorable ^_^

If you want to call something stupid or silly, then feel free to do so. But, if you call something stupid “gay”, then you may be called “gay” as well. Furthermore, if you have nothing nice to say, then don’t say anything at all. Lastly- Taeshi works hard on every page, and has been doing a great job doing so. If you think you can do better, then be my guest, and try it yourself.

@Jessica U. Ingmann If you mean when she was on the phone with Mike saying she doesn’t like the way Lucy treats him, she’s absolutely right. Mike and Lucy have a really unhealthy relationship. I can go into several paragraphs of psychoanalysis if you really want but that takes the fun out of the comic for a lot of people, and it’s probably total BS anyway lol

@Dreyfuss Pfft… psychoanalysis. 9.9 Alls I know is that some people slap other people around sometimes. Lucy may’ve given Mike a bloody nose once or twice, but I ain’t heard of her stabbin’ him or doin’ any lastin’ damage, so I says their relationship was just fine! (‘course, I have different standards than some people…)

Then Sandy came along and turned Mike into a selfish jerk. Woo.

Sandy never existed. It was Paulo all along. And now he’s about to deliver the coup de grace. He will then use this to tease Mike about his sexual orientation for the rest of his life, never realizing the irony that Paulo’s implication says as much about his own sexual orientation.

I come from the future to tell you this.

Comment ID #220239

I’m glad for some of the character’s in BCB that it’s this easy to find their significant other and connect so quickly. Not to mention so romantically.
However, my concerns do not drift towards those of bright prospect, but to those who stare with a distant look of ice from dark corners. It isn’t to say I like people who cry, but those who remain strong despite their weakness; those who can keep to themselves, when above all else they want to connect with someone else.
There are a lot of lonely souls and those who know the pain can tell death is preferable to isolated suffering, but those who can get by such a deep and dreadful desire become something stronger…and dangerous.
They’re already at odds with themselves, the last thing they need is some fool to push them further towards the cliff they’re trying to avoid.
I’m sorry, but while this Mike chapter is brilliant and colorful, all I see at the back of my mind is Lucy. It’s clear that Mike and Sandy are going to be okay, but what of the black sheep? What of Lucy?
Some of us can laugh and some know we should laugh, but we don’t, because in truth there is still tension, even if it’s shadowing the glee these two now express. Only when there is true relief will one faintly smile; a poor gesture of the good feelings bursting through the heart. Mad Lucy

@ Jessica U. Ingmann Not looking to start a fight here, but I would not appreciate someone literally hitting me and then calling me selfish for preferring to be with someone that doesn’t. She doesn’t do lasting physical damage, but it’s been made very clear throughout the comic that she’s put a lot of mental and emotional strain on Mike. He’s not being selfish, she has been mistreating him.

To be fair, Lucy isn’t ALL bad. She’s damaged goods, and much bitchier than she has a right to be, but she has the potential to change. She CAN be a kinder, more reasonable person, but she needs to be separated from Mike for a while or she’ll never change. I think Paulo’s going to be the best thing for her. They’re both kind of messed up, and they fit each other like a glove.

However, to be honest… I think a lot of Lucy fans are Lucys themselves.

Anyways, now it’s time to see how this relationship is really going to roll. After all, they’ve just been with each other for a matter of minutes, so their creepy face pinching doesn’t automatically means they are going to be perfect-face-pinching love birds forever.

That’s adorable, even though Mike is still a jerk. Sandy is a sweetheart and I honestly don’t think he deserves her. Not only because of the way he treated Lucy, but also how he neglected his other friends a bit, finding his cellphone to be the most important. I know the feeling of being in a long distance relationship, your focus is on the other one all the time. But you might, unintentionally, isolate yourself from all your other friends. They might seem less important, but they’re not. Also, it seems like Paulo wil eventually connect the dots about what’s really wrong with Lucy …

The meeting with Sandy felt so suspenseful and scary, and now they’re laughing like nothing happened. It’s like in real life when you meet someone you’ve never seen or haven’t spoken to for a long time and you feel so nervous about it ,the tension builds up and suddenly it let go and you feel comfortable again. You made this visible through the chapter and made it feel so real-like. You reflected these feelings very well.

you know, i do not mind sandy.
really. i see so many people focusing anger on this character.
but in the meantime, she’s just too adorable.
and ofcourse, she has her downers. everyone does.
but at this point, haters goin’ to hate.
the story really started from the day that mike and lucy came from that restroom so many years ago (for us). and now..
he’s happy, next to the horrible stress and depression he created for a other.
i don’t hate mike. i understand his situation. and i get it why he did it. i think these are one of those moments that he forgets what kind of pain he wears, and did to others.
i don’t wish him anything bad, because i know no person van ever hold such grudges against someone. he will eventually see lucy’s regret and pain. even though it takes time. lucy didn’t let him breathe for a while. for us it’s been months but for BCB just a few weeks.
now, it’s a long time since i posted, but i really think this one does the trick for now.

to be short:
lucy is depressed because she doesn’t gave alot of time trying to understand mike, instead she used the time to understand herself.

Mike has had enough of all the drama and complaining and having her as the centre of attention. now he has all the attention and regrets nothing at this point. but it is eating him eventually.

And sandy… i don’t understand why people hate her.
she’s been placed as the booman. while, she never did anything wrong. her actions are just because she cares and is worried about mike.
would you like it if your boy or girlfriend would have been hit by someone you didn’t know?

Oh.. oh, this is way too ****in’ cute. I think I really do support MikexSandy, mostly because he’s no good for Lucy (and she has to have Paulo, duh), and Mike and Sandy are so adorable with each other! I mean, who meets up with someone after forever, after hundreds of silly “ily~~!!<3” texts and a weird long distance relationships.. and grabs their face.
But there’s always the chance it’ll fail to work because of in real life awkwardness, which, now, I really don’t want to happen D: I think they’re both pretty cheerful and outgoing, they seem like the type of people who fill the empty space of stunted conversation. Hope this goes well, man.

god, so many worthless pieces of trash here…

it’s nice to see true love, even if it’s just in fiction… hell, that is the only place one can really hope to see it, nowadays, considering the trash the walks the earth.

Mike + Sandy = D’awwwww so sweet together!
However, I really really hope this situation doesn’t end in any over-the-top physical contact (AKA Sex *Ducks from crazy screaming elementary school sex Ed teacher*) Though it would be gratifying to see a couple this close express thier love in an ultra close, quasi-physical-spiritual connection (once again, refering to sex pplz) I have a feeling it would be the absolute worst thing for this relationship, ( this being thier first face to face interaction in years) as well as the fact that mike is overly emotional with the fight/******* rant he gave Lucy, combined with the joy to see sandy again (Translation: Over emotions lead to regrettable sex) Don’t ruin this relationship by letting your hormones get the best of you!

These are also the same people who are taking daisy’s statement at face value. I’d say it’s because they are looking past her flaws to see her true character, but it’s not. There’s too much evidence that points to that they are completely ignoring the flaws.

The reason (in my opinion) there is so much sandy hate is because she stands between what was thought to be the main couple of the story. Now that this character has come in and as it’s looking more and more likely that she’ll be mike’s main squeeze, the hate is ever increasing among the shipping types. As for the rest well look above, the non shippers are being more lenient now and watching what happens.

Up until this point I had basically no opinion of Sandy… but yet this is adorable. However, I feel like once they get past this face grabbing adorableness it might not be as glorious as they both would have hoped.

….Or I could be wrong. They did stay in touch for this long and that itself says something about their relationship. WE SHALL SEE!

Also, the face grabbing reminds me of me and my boyfriend. When I see him after a long time apart we both get really excited and up grabbing his face and shoulders like crazy. So I know how they feel…. and it’s a lovely feeling!

YES! I am so happy to see the other side of the two main characters. We’ve seen so much of Lucy’s thoughts and problems, it is nice to see Mike’s side.

Not entirely sure how to feel about this one. I’m glad that Mike has FINALLY met back up with Sally, and that he’s not being emo/jerkish. But, at the same time, he’s ****** me off so much I don’t think he deserves happiness. :unsure:

Am I the only one who finds this sickeningly cheesy instead of adorable?
No, I don’t hate Sandy OR Mike.
Yes I HAVE been in love but this is just ridiculous DX!!

On the other hand it IS a very original way to greet your loved one! Because hugs and kisses are so mainstream -3-!! (That’s not sarcasm, I actually think it’s funny and original)

Still…. I hate cheesiness…..but love this comic

*sigh* He’s doing what I wish I was able to do :( Whether things turn out positive or not, its better than not doing anything at all and never knowing what could have happened.

You, Mike, you are lucky

Waiting for the moment, A.) A dream B.) She has a boyfriend C.) A really BAD revelation (either she’s mortally sick, not interested anymore, she’s pregnant, etc.)

It’s been a while since I commented on a page, so I might as well place one here.

I’ve learned to like Sandy. She’s sweet, a bit insecure, but all together really nice. She and Mike go really well together, like one of those PB&J sandwiches. But now that they’ve met face-to-face what will come from it? Will they be as compatible in real life like they were in their texts and letters? Will Sandy turn out to be a bit mover overbearing and/or clingy than she appears?

Oh, who am I kidding.

This is basically just my last hopes for Michael and Lucy being a thing surfacing. At this rate, those feels will be squashed, rebuilt once more and than torn down with more excrutiating force than they were before.

Who knows, I’ll probably start shipping Lucy/Paulo and Michael/Sandy by next month.

…That aside, I’m still a bit ticked at Mike for how he treated Lucy-dear. Especially when she just wanted him to be happy. He has this mindset that Lucy is like some parasite in the form of a girl wants nothing to do with her because of it. I’ll admit, they’re relationship is confusing and Lucy has hurt Mike a lot in the past, but really? Going and kicking the little self-esteem she had left into the dust? And then stomping on it until is was pratically nothing? You went too far, Mike. Too. Effing. Far. But other than that, I like Mike again?

Face grab much? This actually isn’t all that uncommon… >.> Perhaps in different ways, but usually someone will do something weird like this when two in a long distance relationship meet to make sure it’s actually happening.

UGHHH I AM CONFLICTED! I am torn between squee’ing like a 12 year old girl at a Justin Beiber concert and raging and hating the ever living crap out of Mike for what he said to Lucy…

Yes, I am still upset about that. Why wouldn’t I be? >_< stupid dumb jerky jerking jerk jerk face McArsehole!
