In other news WHAAAAAATTTT

somehow bcb is still in the comicmix march madness tournament, one of like, 16 comics left

I really want to thank you guys for all the support you’ve given in this crazy contest, especially that last round where so many people voted! I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am.

It’s nearing the end, so I strongly encourage you all to vote for your favourite comics and not get too caught up in the competition aspect. I don’t really expect (or want) BCB to be #1, I’m just proud that it got as far as it did!

Don’t miss a thing!

Every Monday morning, we send thousands of BCB fans a week of pages, a note from the two of us and a shippy comic strip celebrating a random pairing of characters.

We’ll put the link your inbox straight away.

The shading is wonderful in these last two pages, you really feel the atmosphere and you get the fact that it’s dark, even though you can see that characters so well. As always, loving the details. It amazes me how sharp you can get the picture using watercolors! I love watching your art styles grow and advance. Also, I hope we get to see Mike and Lucy up on stage soon! I’ve been dying to see where this play is headed. A musical about curses and heroes? I’d see it.

Just a thought:

I feel like wanting to make-out with Paulo on a whim like that is not typical for Lucy when she isn’t being super emotional. This definitely seems like something Augustus would do, I am beginning to wonder if she did have a chat with Augustus after being on the roof of the building on New Years Eve. Is she perhaps using his method of coping with something difficult?

In my opinion, this is no time for her to be in a relationship…she is mostly likely still a bit out of sorts.

I hope this isn’t the case…and Paulo isn’t lead astray. But I suppose like with most pages…only time will tell.

I like these theatre scenes. This is a converging of a few other plots in a big way, and this play finally happening sets up for a great setting, and interesting dialogue shuffles with characters!

Also yeah, poor Jazzy, I think Paulo is eventually gonna regret leaving her.
