Nothing can calm Carl's grandma's fury.

By the way I finally fixed the Fanart page! You can always submit fanart/fanfics to [ cansofbeanscomic@gmail.com ], I'll treasure it forever.

I think it would be a great idea (for laughs, not for him).
Great page

Carl would not be laughing either way!

Switch the Portuguese for Spanish and you've got my grandma. (Thanks for the extra details on your Tumblr, by the way! I've been eating it all up. <3)

No problem, I enjoy talking about 'em. :D

Aww :(
She sounds upset
Kupocake 11th Mar 2014, 6:33 PM Reply
She'll calm down after a nap, maybe.

Cheap collage or well paying job?

What Carl isn't saying is how much loan debt he's already accumulated!

Is it me or is Carl's laptop crap?
Kupocake 11th Mar 2014, 7:18 PM Reply
All of Carl's stuff is at LEAST 5 years past its upgrade date. But that's okay, he's not exactly a tech guy to start with.

You do NOT wanna see Carl's Grandma when she's angry!

Hell hath no fury like Carl's grandmother scorned.

So Carl has either Brazilian or Portuguese blood, niice :D
Kupocake 12th Mar 2014, 9:12 AM Reply
Yup! Carl's half-Portuguese. But his parents were born and raised in Brazil, so his family has a Brazilian cultural identity as well.

(HIs Grandma is 100% Portuguese though)

Get that boy up to the Bay Area and I can learn him some Portuguese real good. If Dude comes along we'll work on Spanish too and then go for some nice Brazilian barbecue. It's not right to lose your parents' language, dangit!
Kupocake 12th Mar 2014, 1:47 PM Reply
Carl has a difficult time learning language, but he'd appreciate the tutoring!

Dude is a fast learner, but have fun trying to fix his surfer accent.

Waaaait, a second, is he brazilian or portuguese?! Because I'm brazilian! 8D
Kupocake 12th Mar 2014, 1:47 PM Reply
Carl's technically half-Portuguese, but he's familiar with Brazilian culture because his parents were born and raised there.

For a second I was like, man my Spanish is fading...then I realized it was Portuguese, which is different. Good to know I can still understand Spanish, even if I don't always recognize it. :D
Also, good work as always making a simple convo looking interesting with different angles and expressions.

It's both challenging and really fun to come up with camera angles on a conversation scene! It's gotten to the point where camera angles on a slightly more actiony scene has become difficult.

How well does Carl get on with his mum, dad, grandma, sister, etc.?

And since I know only one thing about Portugese culture: does Carl like caldo verde?
Kupocake 12th Mar 2014, 1:59 PM Reply
Carl likes it! His grandma made it for him a lot when he was a kid. But he forgot what it's called (he just refers to it as that potato soup).

Out of everybody in the family, he's closest to his sister. His grandmother is overprotective of him, but he is also very close to her because of it. When he was growing up, his parents would not be home very often (they run a store together), so he never really got close to them until he was a teenager. Even then, he prefers the company of his sister & grandmother.

As a portuguese myself XD Loved it *giggles* And amazing to see the progress in the story <3

Ahh I'm glad you like it so far!

That first panel is extremely amusing to me. I’m Portuguese. Funny thing is, I was already reading panel two when it suddenly dawned on me and I was like “Wait, what?” re-read it and ended up grinning like a fool. See what you make me do?!

But damn…poor Carl D: Dude, work your magic!

I like making people happy :D

Dude will figure something out!

Yup! Carl only speaks bits and pieces of it though, unfortunately.

Carl would be cuter without that stache, lol
XDDD All I need to see now is Carl caught under a mistle toe with Dude... KYAHHH ***A*** :3

Carl's never giving up that 'stache! Not in this lifetime!

Kupocake 13th Mar 2014, 9:28 AM Reply
You don't know how happy it makes me to see people get so excited about Carl being half-Portuguese hahaha.

Kupocake 13th Mar 2014, 12:48 PM Reply
Aww do you want me to exchange/remove yours?? I don't want to make you feel uncomfortable about it!

Yeah remove it please :P

All though in the next 3 months I'll probably hate it again :D
Kupocake 13th Mar 2014, 1:02 PM Reply
Okay it's removed. Sorry to see it go, but I look forward to whatever you come up with!

I find it amazing that he talks even a little Portuguese! And I found some Brazilians who actually read your comic. I never said how much I like your art work and your comic, have I? Well, love it!
