Woot! Good going. I also have a sickness but it isn't too bad :P
Kupocake 18th Sep 2012, 12:24 PM Reply
I usually don't get sick so this was kind of surprising. I'm more or less over the cold though, so that's good, at least. XD

Dude's serious face :O

Dude can have a pretty serious serious-face.

I'm going to have to get used to Dude being serious. It's...unnatural. Hope he brought sneakers, he might have to do some running very soon...
Kupocake 18th Sep 2012, 12:26 PM Reply
The Serious-Dude face is an extremely rare species, sometimes found in the wild. We have to be very careful to observe him in his natural habitat.

(Fun fact: Dude doesn't own sneakers.)

Great attention to detail, nice! Glad you're able to stick with the schedule, many find themselves falling behind, but, commitment!
Kupocake 18th Sep 2012, 12:27 PM Reply
Thanks! I hate disappointing people, so I try my best to stick with my schedule, no matter how sick or work-loaded I am. :D

What does it say on his left arm? I'm guessing initials for the University?
Amazing environments as always Kupo! :D
Kupocake 18th Sep 2012, 12:28 PM Reply
UCW, which stands for University of California: Walnut, where Dude and Carl attend.

Thanks! :D

I appreciate it.

Dude looks like he can rough up someone pretty bad with that hoodie and sunglasses.
Prongs 18th Sep 2012, 1:42 PM Reply
I mean headphones.
Kupocake 18th Sep 2012, 8:18 PM Reply
Dude probably can beat up someone, but he's too chill to do that. You'd have to push him around first.

Nice subtle expressions. Also, for a web comic, this sure does have a lot of atmosphere.
Kupocake 18th Sep 2012, 8:19 PM Reply
Thank you! Well, I treat this more like a regular comic that I happen to post online. My European comic influences are leaking, whoops. XP
TheSmilingPsycho 18th Sep 2012, 8:24 PM Reply
Yea, I can see that. It's something I could totally read all over again once you've finished this issue.

Well, a night with a full moon does throw a lot of problems, especially with Carl around. :U

Won't you ever give us the chance to say "Dat ass"?

You have my permission to write "dat ass" whenever you like. ;D

WHOOOOO, finally read through everything (I've been catching glimpses of this on tumblr and assuming it was something entirely different). Totally wasn't expecting the direction you took this in, but it's great! :) You did an awesome job of establishing characters right off the bat, nothing is dragging so far, and it's really fun (and the art is great, your backgrounds are pretty gorgeous, actually). So glad I actually read it for real, I'm looking forward to next Tuesday!
Kupocake 18th Sep 2012, 8:21 PM Reply
Aw man, thank you for the awesome comment. Out of curiosity, just based on the previews on Tumblr, what did you think Cans of Beans was about? I'd love to know! :U

Well, I just figured it was like an Odd Couple type deal (which in a way it is); but I saw it as a slice-of-life comic with no real plot or direction, just two guys trying to get used to each other through everyday life. Which maybe there's some of that (they're definitely an Odd Couple), but I caught a glimpse of page 23 yesterday or something and was like, "Oh wow. Things are happening!" Which prompted me to read it so I could find out what was going on (I mean, I was planning to one day go through it, but it wasn't at the forefront of my mind).

And I love slice-of-life stuff too, it's just. Yeah. XD

Also, I really want to shave off Carl's sorry excuse for a mustache.
Kupocake 18th Sep 2012, 10:46 PM Reply
Nah I totally hear you. I love Slice-of-Life, but at the same time, the lack of direction in most Slice-of-Life bothers me. So, I guess Cans of Beans is technically sort of slice-of-life, but there is definitely an underlying plot. Not quoting Hannah Montana, it's like the b-b-best of both worlds! Interesting to know your thought, thanks for writing it out.

Everyone wants to shave off Carl's mustache. But he'll scratch your face off first.

pourquoi tout le monde veux rasée sa moustache ? c'est mignon pourtant

It's a creeper-mustache! :U

Great page as always, your art is always flawless! C:

Thank you! I still got some kind of awkward cough, but I can definitely do work without having to lie down anymore. :D

I actually started reading this about two weeks or so back - but I find myself rechecking and checking for updates. (New page yay!) XD
(Also, wouldn't be surprised if Carl gets booted out of the dorm if Weapon Of Room Destruction is deployed monthly.)
Kupocake 19th Sep 2012, 7:46 AM Reply
Woo-hoo, thanks for the readership!

Carl will probably owe a lot of money at this point. Poor, poor, in-debt college student.

Ooh, Dude... what'd you do?!

He put on a hoodie and went on a magic journey.

Better watch out though, the janitor knows mop-fu and Windex-jutsu.

Does he know him or is it just coincidental that he called him Dude?
