He says what BRIAN gets covered in, does this mean he doesn't realise Brian can hear him? 0.o

No. You don't have to address people in your thoughts even if you know they can hear them.

Ha ha ha, regarding my comment from last week, it's strips like this one that makes it worth everything even if it's only once a week - this one is great. :D

To further elaborate, the throwaway joke in the second panel and Brian's expression in the last panel is what makes this one so solid.

Thanks! I'm glad you think so.

Seems like Brian's getting pretty good at making Julia comfortable :)

Hi, Sylvia! I just found your comic today and read all of it and then posted a recommendation of it on my LiveJournal. I thought you might like to see what a fan's thoughts, so here 'tis:

Think Before You Think is just over a year old, so it's still pretty new. Like just about all the other works I've listed here, it's a slice-of-life story, but the twist here is that main character Julia has a crush on a guy named Brian, but she doesn't develop this crush until soon after she finds out he can read people's minds. Her friend Becky is totally cool with his mind-reading and finds it funny, like it's a parlor trick or something. Julia, on the other hand, is self-conscious in general, and if Brian couldn't read her mind, there's no telling how long it would have taken her to admit her feelings to him or anyone else. Hilarity ensues, mostly at Julia's expense, but it's a very realistic kind of hilarity. I mean, aside from Brian being able to read minds, there's not too much fantastical here. This really is just a cast of characters living their lives as normal college peeps do...it's just that one of them is totally in on everything the others' are thinking, whether they care or not. Two things that sealed my fondness for this series: 1) Brian's name is totally a pun insofar as you switch the "a" and the "i" around and you get "brain", and 2) at one point while Brian and Julia are in the car together, she's so humiliated by some weird thought she had (because of course your mind will jump to the worst thing possible when you tell it not to) that she grumbles to herself that she'd love just to throw herself out of the car...and Brian promptly child-locks the doors. Which is kind of an awesome character moment for him, especially when he tries to play it off as an accident. lmao Seriously, this comic is definitely worth checking out. There's still a lot of character development that needs to happen, but I love what Sylvia has done so far, and I can't wait to read more.

Thank you for posting that recommendation! That's a better summary than I could come up with myself, and very complimentary.
