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!
Anyone notice that when Sparkle switched to a red card, all she did with her costume was add a corset?  She didn't even change her codename.  How lazy is that?

    Well, that’s one way to ruin a villain – word of mouth. Excellent workaround~

    …clever. It makes up for the bait and switch nicely.

  3. Coriolis says:

    Did she have the open boob window as a hero, or did she also add it (or should I say, subtract it) at her Face-Heel Turn to be “edgy”? Not that there’s anything wrong with that, just wondering.

  4. And here’s proof of Sparkle’s sidekick era costume;

    So the alt-text is right; the only thing she did to signify herself as a villain was add a corset.


    Is it just me, or does that seem incredibly vindictive.

    So far he’s just been leaving the crooks places for people (cops/heros) to find, but in this case he actually called the cops.

    Is there some sort of vendetta here?

      I don’t know about anyone else, but I find myself _really_ kind of hoping he’s either Coldfire or tied to him and found out about her that way. That feels like the kind of thing that would be pretty awesome.

      Of course, the author/artist(s?) has done well so far, so don’t mind my speculation if you have something else in mind.

        Well, TECHNICALLY he is tied to him, cuz he did catch him once. That’s not much of a connection, though. Declan seems to be the popular suspect right now, but I think it’s just as likely to be a completely new person who will become a regular character after he is revealed. Likely a disillusioned sidekick.

    Second-to-last panel has a typo in it. Reputation has an extra ‘A’ in it as ‘reputatation’.

    Also, I like the Vigilante’s style.

  7. Skipper says:

    My good sir…why do you have so many teeth?

    …does the corset add structural support?

  8. Sewher says:

    Some corset can add additional support…. However, that one does not. ( that type add a visible waistline)
