1) We will be speaking at Penguicon April 28-30. (2017.penguicon.org) 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.

Fun fact:  Laura and Erika have long hypothesized that powered-people would have immense caloric needs, and have included the large amounts of food that people with physical powers eat in writing for years.

Also, Erika was channeling her appetite when writing that food order, cuz she should really go for a good eggy burger.

    aaand made me hungry.

  2. Laura says:

    Is dipping everything in ranch an American thing or just a midwest thing? I think I’ve heard it both ways.

  3. Sidekickgirl says:

    I think it’s MORE prominent in the midwest, but creamy dressings in general are very American.

    I apologize for the necropost, but maybe some future archive reader will appreciate it.

    If supers all share a massive appetite, it gives police/villains/paparazzo a way to find them. If they are open about being supers, this does not cause any problems, but maintaining a secret identity becomes a huge hassle. Why?

    1) Someone will watch the retaurants. You can eat out, but you have to do it at a safe location (a ‘supers only’ restaurant, which will be under surveillance,) or you have to order a completely inadequate meal and then pig-out in secret later.

    2) School and work lunches will be a nightmare. Supers will have to hide food in lockers, cars, desks, etc. They will also have to constantly sneak around to get to this food and eat it without being seen.

    3) Somebody is going to watch the grocery stores. Anybody buying huge quantities of protein bars regularly is probably trying to hide them and eat surreptitiously. Anybody who buys large quantities of food and does not shop with kids in tow is also a suspect. If I wanted to identify supers, I would found a company that runs customer loyalty programs for grocery stores at rock-bottom prices, and I would run surveillance on anybody who met those criteria. If my prices were low enough, I could probably run these loyalty programs for all of the big chains, and be able to catch supers who spread their shopping over multiple stores.
