Carl doesn't seem too thrilled...
Also, I added some fancy doodads on the rightside of the comments section. You can follow me on Tumblr, Twitter, and even RSS! I'll add more icons later. : )

Carl just needs to loosen up a bit, then he can start having fun.

The day Carl loosens up will be a cold day in Hell.

I can't blame Carl's anxiety about this. I'd be pretty nervous there too, and I'm not a werewolf.
Kupocake 1st Oct 2013, 10:11 AM Reply
Just want to say I'm glad the anxiety reads well! This page was pretty difficult. :U

It's an Irish bar. I can tell. I'm Irish
Kupocake 1st Oct 2013, 10:12 AM Reply
I ain't Irish, but I do love Irish pubs!

I can relate to Carl on this. Being pulled into social situations unwillingly aren't the best of situations, I'd say.

Also I am Xylophonic-Melody on Tumblr! I don't know why I haven't commented on here before. Or commented on anything about CoB in general before a few days ago - I've been following the comic since, like, the start of the October chapter? |D But I'm going to from now on, because this comic is freaking great.

Social anxiety can be the worst. : (

Oh hey! Ahh super flattered, thanks for reading and commenting!

Know the feelinggggg. Poor Carl. :c

No problem! I really enjoy reading.~

Hooray for social anxiety! I can totally relate to Carl's entire face. Been there, done that, bought the T-shirt.

Daisy no you're underage

She shouldn't be hanging out with murderous hitchhikers from Alabama either.

She's a rebel

I guess there's a lack of barfights there. (referring to the fact the bar is full of hippies.)
Kupocake 1st Oct 2013, 1:35 PM Reply
Irish pubs are all the rage with hippies.

Poor Carl XD Don't worry, hon... Dude is there, as bad as it might seem to him, it could be wooorse LOL XD
Kupocake 1st Oct 2013, 1:36 PM Reply
I think having Dude there actually makes the situation worse!

Poor Carl, he looks like he doesn't know whether to curl up into a ball under a table and cry or just wet his pants. [sends virtual chocolate to Carl]

Weirdly, I'm exactly the same in this sort of situation (partly shyness, partly that I'm very prone to making an idiot of myself) UNLESS I have a friend with me (as moral support, and to warn me when I'm about to say/do something daft). Carl seems likely to be MORE anxious because of Dude's presence...

Bring on the Flaming Sambucas, Dude!
Kupocake 1st Oct 2013, 1:36 PM Reply
Dude is there for moral support, but I'm not sure if that'll do Carl any good!
anime8snowman 1st Oct 2013, 2:02 PM Reply
Is he afraid of happy? or happy people?
Kupocake 1st Oct 2013, 2:07 PM Reply
Carl's not too good with crowds...

I do sincerely hope there's karaoke, or at least beer pong. :D
Kupocake 1st Oct 2013, 2:07 PM Reply
Both activities that Carl utterly fails at!
momo 1st Oct 2013, 3:14 PM Reply
Ahaha I feel bad for laughing but Carl's so nervous! It's like he's walking towards his own hanging.

On another note I am in love with the background in panel 4. Tough perspective to pull off, it came out very believable.
Kupocake 1st Oct 2013, 3:20 PM Reply
He's such a poor nervous wreck haha.

Aw thank you! That panel was pretty annoying to work out, but I'm glad you like it!

Poor Carl is like, "What is this thing you call Socializing!? I don't like it..."
Kupocake 1st Oct 2013, 8:55 PM Reply
Carl's brain cannot computer this... "socializing...!"
Thanatos1320 1st Oct 2013, 10:14 PM Reply
I feel for Carl. I've been in his position before, it's not fun.
Kupocake 1st Oct 2013, 10:40 PM Reply
Some environments can be really difficult to endure. : (
LeeQuoiZ 2nd Oct 2013, 1:16 AM Reply
What if he's afraid because every time he gets drunk Billy comes out?
Kupocake 2nd Oct 2013, 8:47 AM Reply
That would be interesting!

Aaaaa he's such a little fish out of water the poor sweetie <3
Kupocake 2nd Oct 2013, 9:06 PM Reply
Out of his familiar pond and into the wide scary ocean :(
Finz_ 2nd Oct 2013, 7:23 PM Reply
He really doesn't look very happy, can see it plainly even in his hands. Love how you play with different takes on all of those mini scenes. Gives a great sense of what Carl is seeing and experiencing.

I have to say I'd definitely be more comfortable in a new bar than a strangers house party. Totally different atmospheres though, and first bar visit will give anyone butterflies.
Kupocake 2nd Oct 2013, 9:07 PM Reply
Aw thank you! I love messing with little actions and things. : )

Yeah actually, a bar full of strangers is better for me too than a small cramped intimate environment. But yeah, a new bar experience can be terrifying.
