It's been one year since the first page has been uploaded. Therefore, happy 1-year anniversary to Cans of Beans! I could not have done it without the support of all you wonderful people.

From the bottom of my heart: thank you for your continued readership, loving comments, and sticking with Carl and Dude for all these months. To many more beans to come!

(and I swear I'll update the fanart/links page soon argh argh argh)

Happy one year anniversary! I am so glad you found comicfury to host because I absolutely adore this comic.

Choosing to host on CF was about the best thing I could have done. Thanks!

i'm so glad that i discovered about comic fury and /read/ this comic
i love this comic and the community here
should get an account asap
Kupocake 17th Apr 2013, 11:44 AM Reply
Do it! You can also follow along other CF comics. There's a bunch of really great ones out there!

I'm following Seed and Gods Almighty :D
But before i do make an account, i want to make my comic quality as consistently good as yours. You're my benchmark. :D
Kupocake 19th Apr 2013, 12:05 PM Reply
Seed and Gods Almighty are pretty fine comics!

Aw man, shucks. I'm really flattered. Personally, I think that once you got your story more-or-less figured out, just go ahead and do it! You learn a lot more about comics just by drawing them. It's all practice, and the best way to practice is to make a comic and jump right in.

Either way, good luck. I'm excited to see your stories!

This is the anniversary of Carl going from sarcastic innuendo/loathing to doing a nice thing for his buddy and smiling about it. Congrats! aw man I just really like this comic and these guys and their feelings
Kupocake 16th Apr 2013, 11:24 AM Reply
Thanks! And here's for Carl and Dude giving everyone many more feelings.

Happy anniversary! Also, how are good ol' Professor Snagglytooth's eyes? I know it was dark, but still...
Kupocake 16th Apr 2013, 11:25 AM Reply
His eyes are about as good as his teeth. XD
Nightsky 16th Apr 2013, 1:06 PM Reply
New question: what ISN'T wrong with him? XD
Kupocake 16th Apr 2013, 1:10 PM Reply
His nose. He takes pride in it.
Nightsky 16th Apr 2013, 1:13 PM Reply
It's still pretty long, though. It must have been a pain to wear a mask at Halloween, or a ski mask, or anything else that covers noses.
Guest 16th Apr 2013, 11:47 PM Reply
Mask?! why would you ever cover up such a perfect hallowing mug like that ^_^

Happy anniversary! Loving the development of Carl and Dude in this arc. Carl in panel 3 is the happiest I've ever seen! And the contrasts are awesome.
Kupocake 16th Apr 2013, 1:11 PM Reply
Thank you! And yes, Carl is making quite the progress.

Happy anniversary! I don't have any cake, but this comic is sweet enough to celebrate.

Awwww thanks!

One year of beans, beans and beans!
Prongs 16th Apr 2013, 1:30 PM Reply
I'd have to say - I'm impressed. When it comes to anything digital my commitment's total shit. But you made a webcomic and kept it up for a whole damn year! Nice, congrats.

And that daily dose of Prongs: Hey, Carl forgot the Magnum tattoo and left-side limp!
Kupocake 16th Apr 2013, 1:55 PM Reply
Thank you! Committing to any project can be really tough, but I guess in the end I just said to myself, "I just want to make a really freaking good comic" and then went with it.

"And he also didn't have headphones I swear"

Even weirder: Carl's the happiest we've ever seen him (he looks so SWEET when he smiles like that!) *right* before his least favourite time of the month! Must feel weird for Carl too.
Can't wait to see WolfyCarl...
Kupocake 16th Apr 2013, 2:18 PM Reply
Well, it's not every day that Carl has someone backing him up. : )

But yes, if all goes to plan, you should definitely check by 2 weeks from now. >:)
aok666 16th Apr 2013, 3:20 PM Reply
Sorry, I got overexcited there.
Will Dude be an accidental spectator, or will he be assuming that Carl had another one-person wild (ha ha) party? (Dude: "Seriously, Carl, don't mix your drinks..." Morning-After-Moon!Carl: "GRRRurgh..." *passes out across Dude's bed because he has no energy to climb to his* Dude: "You really, honestly do have no concept of personal space..." *Carl snores*)
Interesting note: one TV show I love (Being Human - UK version) had a storyline where the resident werewolf had forgotten about the clocks going back for autumn, so he was out and about (in a primary school, at his girlfriends' daughter's Parent's Evening!) when his transformation hit an hour earlier than he expected, and he only just managed to run home to his cage (leaving at least one person traumatised). Anything like that going to happen to Carl?
Kupocake 16th Apr 2013, 3:27 PM Reply
You'll just have to read and find out! ;U

Also I'm aware of the show Being Human (both the UK and US version), but I haven't watched it yet. Maybe later!

A year already? woooow Congratulations!!! I've enjoyed this since the very sketchs of characters I saw in your DevART page... I don't Regret ANYTHING XD Keep those feelings and awesomeness coming =3

Also, Carl's description LOL I See No Dude, Yo XD

Thanks man for sticking around all this time. My old sketches are just shameful looking in comparison haha. XD

Wow a whole year, congrats!! Even though I'm a "guest" I've been following you since way before you even started, sometime when you were on Gaiaonline a lot! I'm so glad you've brought this story to life (and update consistently!) Tuesdays have become one of my favorite days of the week :D

And nice!Carl is the best. I hope he continues to do more selfless acts for Dude in the future :")
Kupocake 16th Apr 2013, 5:35 PM Reply
Oh gosh you remember my awkward Gaia Online phase. Haha. XD And I'm glad that CoB made Tuesdays more awesome!

Hopefully Nice!Carl will stay nice. :U

I just want to say I was around when you were still doing concept art, and I don't mean that in a " I liked it before it was cool" kind of way. I mean I've watched it grow and it's truely been a pleasure to come along for this ride.

Thanks Washy for the continued support! It's been pretty crazy, but I'm really happy to just bring this story to life. :V

Well I've been reading this since the beginning, but I've never been big on commenting. (I'm more like the creepy guy that stands in the corner watches everyone.) But I feel that wishing you a happy one year anniversary is worth a comment. Happy one year anniversary! I'll try to be more active here since it's such a great comic with great art, great characters, and a great story.
Kupocake 16th Apr 2013, 11:44 PM Reply
Aww, well I appreciate the comment and compliment! And thank you for sticking by to Cans of Beans for all this time. :)
