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!
such severe abuses...


Yes, there are other characters called Mr Invisible. ┬áDon’t worry about it.

    There’s a movie called Mr.Invisible. Is there a comic book character?

  2. Black Rose says:

    Who is Captain Karma??? Is it the person Val and Hazel are speaking to or someone else that Mr.Invisible gave a broken neck to?

  3. Jaybird says:

    Gonna guess that the girls are Captain Karma and Neckbreak, and the guy is Mr. Invisible.

    Possibly Mr. Invisible because he seems to be getting ignored in panel 4. Just some subtlety that I think I see in his expression and the eye placement of the woman he appears to be talking to, plus what looks like the “Oh, I-” hand.

    Captain Karma and Neckbreak could be either Haze or Val. “Karma comes ’round to bite you in the ass” and “Break Neck Speed”, or vice versa with Hazel being such a sweetie and Val’s crazy healing that would let her come back from a broken neck.

    I think Jaybird has come pretty close to nailing it. My guess is, he was a superhero academy classmate of the girls, and those were private nicknames. Neckbreak could be Val, especially if that’s how she discovered the extent of her healing powers….by recovering from a broken neck. I don’t think Val actually broke anybody’s neck herself (that would become part of a tragic backstory and would have possibly bumped her classification up to “hero”, don’cha know?) Accident? Villain incursion? There’s got to be a story behind this.

  5. David Johnston says:

    Breakneck will be Haze due to speed. Val is “Captain Karma” probably because she made sure everyone got what was coming to them.

    I happen to agree with the idea that they are nicknames for each other. I could see Val with either one. But I rather like the idea that she is “Captain Karma.”

  8. The Other Mike says:

    Well, assuming this is taking place after that whole thing with Ice-hole, “Captain Karma” would be a very appropriate name for her.

    With regard to a comic character named Mr. Invisible
