Saving the City: Sans-Spandex


1) We will be speaking at Penguicon April 28-30. ( There are lots of nifty talks, including our Creating Webcomics series, which should be running Saturday from 11-2. If you're thinking of going, pop over to the forum thread and we can meet up!

2) I finally figured out what was wrong with the store and fixed it, so if you've been looking for merch, it should be ready to go. If you are going to the con and want merch, DON'T order it, just email us and we'll bring it to save on shipping.



to check out all the cool anniversary stuff!
Figured we might as well wrap the week up with something sad.

Kay and Dion MaNatta have a tragic backstory, and they are not nearly as happy about it as the Hero Agency was.  They’ve been estranged from their father since they were born.  When they were teenagers, over the course of less than a year, Dion lost his sight, they developed their powers, and their mother died of cancer.  They came to Metro City from Japan on a scholarship program to a superhero prep school.  After that, they graduated from Hero School a couple of years ahead of Val and became the Ninja Twins of Metro City.

Kay was always the more outgoing of the two.  She was happy, cheerful and made friends easily.  Dion was shyer and more reserved, and often impatient dealing with other people.  But they had been each other’s best friend their entire lives.  They had never been apart, until the Coroner took Kyoko away and set Dion on his mission of revenge.

Kyoko is still remembered in the hearts of all her loved ones.  Dion is currently incarcerated in a Hero Agency prison.

    No, no, no. You’re supposed to start off with the sad, and then move on to the happy, so the happy can heal the sad. Unless you’re evil, then you start out happy and then slowly but surely bring everyone to sad.
