Sidekick Girl

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!


I’ve got some final thoughts on this arc, but I need to sort them in my mind a bit.

    I guess you could say that she just put Shiver…

    (Hold on, lemme find some sunglasses…)

    On ice.

  2. Random Spectator says:

    Part of me thinks that people like Val are assigned as sidekicks specifically as a way to deal with “heroes” like Shiver, because they’re interested in getting the job done right instead of in the fame of hero work. Without the sidekicks, the hero agency would probably crash and burn.

  3. Sario says:

    I think panel 2 is my favorite panel ever in the comic.

  4. Pastangum says:

    THAT… was a well-executed Rorschach Reversal. (Don’t bother looking for it on TV Tropes, I just came up with the phrase.) Kudos, Val.

  5. CheshireMadcat says:

    Val is looking like a hero in the last panel. Love it!

  6. Black Rose says:

    What’s next for Val,maybe a debriefing session with Agent Grey…..?!?!?

  7. Zodo says:

    You could say that Val knocked him…


    Out Cold.

  8. The passing critic says:

    Annnnnnnnd Im back,This was extremely cliche but admittedly satifying.Good thing that Shiver was literally so dumb he makes illumina look like Einstein.

  9. Moleman says:

    So Bad Ass.

  10. Pun says:

    Damn, I bet he’ll get a cold reception from the home office.

  11. JasonAW3 says:

    Shiver just needs to chill…

  12. Anarchyant says:

    He thought he was giving her the cold shoulder but Val knew she had to….


    Freeze his assets.

    -shakes head sadly-

    All these puns are just leaving me cold.

  14. NightLillith says:

    Potentially the last chance to call him Ice-hole

  15. coriolis says:

    As Judge Dredd would say, “it’s the Cube for you perp!”

  16. Prince Charon says:

    Huh. All the cool puns were taken before I got here (OK, not quite *all*). Nice job, Val. Looking forward to Mack’s return.

  17. Paul Lundgren says:

    The last time I saw this many ice puns was “Batman and Robin.”

    Sidekick Girl is cool! Shiver is just out in the cold.
