Nice having lunch with ya on Friday. EGG CREAM WHAT WHAT!
Right back at you! Egg cream in the hizzouse! Also doughnuts. We cartoonists is sum seerius healthfreeks.
This was very touching and powerful. Thank you for sharing.
Bought, read, LOVED. Really fantastic work, Lucy, thanks for sharing it with your free-loading readers. :)
I wanted to donate more to you, because I loved this SO. MUCH. But when I click on the download link, it directs to a page that says "Fatal Error". A little help, please? I wants to give you more money!
Seriously, beautiful work. Thank you for it. :)
It's very touching. Thanks for sharing this, Lucy. Reminds me of some of the things that have been going on in my mind recently.
I'm so glad to be reading your comics again. Very beautiful. I love how you use objects as metaphors. I'm so sorry about what's happened between you and Jon, but I'm glad it hasn't made you bitter or angry. It's always good to grow from these experiences, rather than regress. <3<3 lots of love!
I just ordered my pandigital novel (cheap version of the ipad) and you will be the first bought ebook for it. This is huge because I scour the net looking for free ebooks, but for you, I'd pay more than $2 for one of yours.
Bought it and read it. Beautiful and raw. Thank you for sharing.
Bought. Well done!
However, you misspelled my home state of Connecticut!
By the end I was in tears.
Thanks for making this.

Re: something broke
Check your spam folder - Yahoo seems to send legit download information directly to spam if the sender isn't in your address book.

Just d/l and read it. It's just wonderful. I don't know why I tend to like melancholy autobio/slice of life comics so much. Perhaps an 'often teary sentimentality' like that you shared with your grandfather? I'm happy to see you're doing well and it makes me think that even when I'm feeling totally lost and unsure that I'll muddle through it somehow too. Thanks for sharing :)
I revel in your uncanny ability to find the story in your own life. Finding that plot is tougher to accomplish than it seems. Thank you for having the courage to share even this sad chapter with us.
I've been having a thought over the past years I've read your blog that only just resolved today: I have four daughters; I'd be proud to have any of them grow up to be like you.
I am so downloading this. But not while I'm at work!
Paid and got it in my inbox - thank you for sharing this with us!! Part 3 was my favourite. :)
Did anyone else have trouble opening the file? I keep getting an error message and have tried every tip I can find online and nothing works!
Paid, downloaded, reading it and loving it.
So much faster than ordering a book, but still ... it's nice to hold some paper every now and then.
I hope all is well. <3 (Haven't gotten to the end yet)
Just bought it! About to read...
Also, I wanted to donate but for some reason the link won't work!
Thank you for creating such amazing and meaningful work.
I will support you in every endeavor!
Hey Lucy, I sent in my payment but was never directed to a download page. Any idea what I probably, in my technologically stunted ignorance, got wrong?
OH I SEE
YOU HAVE A FANCY SYSTEM
Blurgh am an idiot, thank you very much and apologies.
Woo, that was the first time I've used my PayPal though I've had it for years!
Great comic as usual!
That was an amazing piece. (It made me all misty-eyed!)
Thank you so much for taking the time and energy to create this piece to share your experience with us.
Thanks for creating that and sharing it.
This was excellent. I just went through a breakup this summer and so many of the feelings are the same and reading this helped me a little. I am really glad you did this and are doing better <3
I'm commenting on this in hopes of reminding myself to purchase this. Because I'm broke and at the library, but this is what financial aid refund checks are for! Right? Yeah. And also to express my enjoyment of your art and my willingness to purchase things... When I do have money. Also break ups sucks. Hard. I mentioned that before, but they still do.
... And then I almost forget to log in.
I did remember. This was really lovely. I updated my adobe and all sorts of crazy things, but then I found the link in the email and it all worked out just fine. You make me want to start drawing again.
You are a beautiful writer and person. I just went through a bad but inevitable break up too, and reading about salvaging your life and receiving such a special treasure from your grandfather put me in tears.
