Veronica: On Monday I was going to advertise this, but it was Souppy’s birthday, BUT YOU GUYS SHOULD REALLY BACK GRAPPLE FORCE RENA. It is made by the guy who made McCain so if you support Grapple Force Rena you are technically supporting McCain and surely you want the creator of McCain to be really successful, right!??!?!?

But seriously it’s a great game on its own and you should check it out and play it and back it because there’s only a week left and it still really needs your help!! Let’s make it happen!!

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.

The Faces of Evil is a far better name, David… and it’s just as unfitting!

He could be still at the near the water taking pictures…. or who knows maybe he fell in following behind Daisy slipping on a rock….

Or he is spaced out we will not know until they find him lol

Maybe he found Lucy having lunch in the woods with her family and this will be what Mike needs to progress as a young adult and show his true feelings lol Mad Lucy :unsure:

David has good gaming taste.
I think abbey is going to find daisy sitting there, while the others are looking for him. Then maybe they will reconcile? Eh, we’ll just have to wait and see.

David is just too cool for this world, I love his face in the last panel. Epic.

;_; Daisy is sad. She can’t go find abbey. And that moment she herd abbey was missing she forgot her ankle was hurt and tryed to rush after him Now everyone knows she’s hurt. That’s good now hopefully she will be patient and wait but I’m sure she will try to find him especially if no one is around to keep a eye on her. I guess that was just a camera abbey had. Wonder if Paulo will keep a eye on Daisy. David you can’t help go sit under a tree somewhere.

That is the best search party name ever. Of all time.
I do hope the find Abbey not hurt or anything because i’d hate to see Daisy super sad. :(

This is likely to be a Daisy & Abbey chapter as that seems to be that focus here.

Everything looks so gosh-darned cute after the style switch and now everyone has adorable, sparkly eyes. I love it! x3

Unrelated to today’s comic, though, the BCB app crashes whenever I try to use it lately. Like, right on boot-up, bam! It crashes.

Daisy is gonna have time to reflect on her feelings. Mike is a lost cause. She needs her big eared bunny boy.

They need to fall back in love, get married and have at least 3 kids and be a family so beautiful, it drives others who gaze upon their beauty beyond the boundaries of sanity!

Lucy is one of the reasons why I hate tsundere characters. The most prominent one is Louise from an anime I don’t even give a damn bout it

TLDR’ Mike really did an excellent job how to deal with annoying tsundere girl like Lucy herself…

Be careful, Daisy! Sprained ankles can be pretty severe and may sometimes take a month or two :(

Ouch! So much for cheerleading…
I’m sure Abbey is fine, Daisy. He’s most likely still taking pictures back there, or he met someone he knows and started talking. (Augustus, maybe?)

or maybe he met Lucy ^_^ lol … god I wish I miss having her here, do we know if she will ever come back?

hate to beat a dead horse, but i just cant take this comic seriously anymore with this style. i’ve been a fan for years now but i think this is where i tap out. wish you guys the best of luck

ugh July 23, 2014, 11:07 PM EST.

Comment ID #284295

Nice overreaction, guys. It’s a sprained ankle. She’s not bleeding out. What’s with the characters in this comic and acting like every little hurt is a gigantic thing? If I had two guys hold me by the shoulder when I complained about my ankle, I’d be telling them to go sit down because they’re embarrassing me.

Jesus Fricken Christ! Can We All Shut Up About The New Art Style?! It Doesn’t Matter What they Look Like As Long As The Story’s Good In My Opinion. I For One Like The New Style And A Continuous Style Would Get Boring It Seems More Like A Comic/Graphic Novel Because Let’s Face It Not Every Graphic Novel Or Comic Keeps The Same Style It Changes Alot!

Does the waterfall and those people have to do with Abbey’s disappearance?? :question:

While it actually does matter what the style is, as the atmosphere has an effect. I do agree, its been said to death, move on. If you’r like me and don’t find it as good, find something else to do.

Also *Gives David a cake*

@Tails I don’t know if @Ravako have had sprained ankles, but I can tell you that I have sprained my ankles 10 to 15 times in my life and it have never actually bothered me.

In another note, I really like this art style, and @people have any of you thought that @Taeshi is doing the proportions of the cats in the story smaller on purpose, because remember that in real life a regular teenage cat is almost the same size as an regular kitten, hens Daisy being almost the same size as the toddler. And also, why do you all complain about wobbly arms, what are you specting, that @Taeshi will draw at a GTA V level of animation (she shouldly could if she had the money and resources that Rork Start has)? Which, oh, by the way, is a game that costed $265 Millions to produce.

Also, happy late bday @Suitcase, sorry know is that I am catching back up.

So… Grapple Force Rena is basically a female Bionic Commando. Of course I’m referring to Bionic Commando from years ago, not the reboot/remake.
Also gj with the page.

Comment ID #284306

@Tails I’ve sprained more **** than you, probably. I said nothing about Daisy’s reaction, because, obviously, it hurts. This is all about Paulo and Mike reacting like Daisy is seriously injured. It’s not the first time the characters seriously overreact to a relatively small injury. It’s just kind of weird to see.

Ravako July 24, 2014, 8:29 AM EST.

Comment ID #284307

One thing I do love about the art style is how the eyes are done. They’re so expressive, it’s wonderful. I mean, just look at Daisy’s teary eyes. You can tell she is hurting badly. D:

Y’know, with the stream and the waterfalls and everything, maybe Abbey just had to go pee or something. But yeah, sure, finding him again sounds like a three-person job. :P

Kibondo July 24, 2014, 12:41 PM EST.

Comment ID #284311

@ Tails we dont know if its sprained or broken. I would say its broken because of the twisting crick noise it made. Daisy is like the little sister so it makes sence Paulo and mike are over reacting. Even if it is broken or sprained. I can’t help but think Abbey is going to show up and see Paulo and Daisy doing something and get mad and have a misunderstanding over it.

Blue fox July 24, 2014, 2:27 PM EST.

Comment ID #284312

Weird, because i have sprained my ankles rather often too and it did indeed often hurt a lot for a certain amount of time (especially while walking around in wooded/uneven areas or trying to use the stairs shortly after the happening).

How should they have reacted? More like “so what, get over it you weak little pile of fur!”? It could have been more than just a sprained ankle, so their concern was justified and not at all overreacting on their part.

@Blue fox
Yeah exactly

This has nothing to do with this comic strip today, (Or yesterday I forget) but am I the only one wondering about that contest that mike and Paulo are trying to win with the soda cans and the winner gets a bike? Or did that end and I just missed it?

Man, Tails, I don’t know why you get so worked up over critiques on the comic. Panels three and four just look bizarrely dramatic for a sprained ankle. That’s all I’m saying. Calm down.

Ravako July 25, 2014, 8:08 AM EST.

Comment ID #284360

As far as we know, they’re still going. There was an askbcb question about that a while ago (that I don’t feel like finding :P ). There is some potential for stuff to happen, but maybe not

in the second panel Daisy looks like a chibi…

Volleyball players are tough as nails and I have seen one sob after falling on a ball- rolling an ankle is plenty of reason for somebody to be in pain, so everybody shut up xD
