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!

Ideas, go!

    Are they looking at Viki because this guy seemed to zone in on her or because she’s the one who normally has an idea? My guess, both.

    • Sean E says:

      Oh I thought it was cause she went that alternate future place so they’re assuming/hoping someone there said “oh by the way soon a weird white robed masked guy will attack and here’s a list of his weaknesses.

  2. Ami says:

    Maybe they’re looking at her because deep down she might feel that way. After all the system cheated her pretty bad and all because she wasn’t the right body type. Val might not realize it but she could have pent up resentment.

    • Prince Charon says:

      To be fair, she’s not the only one screwed over for that reason. She’s not even the only one in that panel screwed over for that reason.

  3. Black Rose says:

    It’s as if Val might know who that gravity shaker is…?!?!

  4. Mara says:

    Could also be because she has a minion boyfriend.

    “Hey, just because I’m the main character, that doesn’t mean the writers hand me all the answers!”

    Poor Val…She gets no respect since shes a sidekick and the second a problem comes up the heros expect her to fix it for them XD.Hmm makes me wonder if hypercompetent sidekicks are a common thing in this universe.

    • SolCannibal says:

      Pretty commonplace if the comic is any indication – not to mention half the time (though not always, Shield, Haze) the main difference between hero and sidekick is which one looks good on camera.

      Also Wolf, who though a hero appear so camera-unfriendly he’s almost a counter-example. Call me biased or prejudiced, but the guy looks totally like an ex-convict (though he might be an uplifted sidekick, like Haze became recently). 😀

    And that’s what you get for being the only competent one.
