Saving the City: Sans-Spandex

ANNOUNCEMENTS!!

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.

3) IT'S ALMOST OUR BIRTHDAY!! SG will be TEN YEARS OLD on May 15th.

And thus ends the Laura-Only-To-Buy-Some-Spine-Healing-Time comics.

Regular comic starts up again next Wednesday!

    Glad to have you back…! :)

    If something like this should happen again,would Laura consider using guest artists while recovering?

    In the words of my late Great-Uncle Winfred, “Donate my body to science. That way I’ll make at least five new friends who will never forget me.”

    Even if you have a disease that prevents you from being ‘parted out,’ you can still donate your body to a medical school. It makes better sense to be helping in a classroom than decomposing in some overly expensive box.

    Erika’s injury has no affect on my ability to draw, so a guest artist would not be necessary.

      I read that post and heard a deadly calm Maggie Smith.

      @Dark Rose. Artist and the colorist are two different skill sets. Oddly, it seems to be harder to have a guest colorist match work than a guest line artist. It’s also a bear if they want to publish book compilations of the comic. They’d have to credit/pay the guest, or Erika would need to recolor the all the guest pages.

    Now, here’s a question, nay, a CHALLENGE:

    I’m not allowed to donate blood for the next year because of the cadaver bone used in my surgery. So, who’s going to go in my place?

  5. Kristin says:

    My plan: donate what I can (ie what they’ll actually accept), burn and scatter the rest :)

    • Sidekickgirl says:

      Mine is to take as many parts as possible (all of it, organs, eyes, skin, bone, whatever. Heck, if cadaver hair is a thing, shave my corpse!) then burn the rest and bury it. There are biodegradable urns with peat moss and such that you put a tree seed in, so that you grow a tree from your ashes. Perhaps I shall become a mighty oak! Or apples!

      • Twitch says:

        Hadn’t heard about the Tree option. It sounds much better than the making the ashes into gems. See LifeGem. I don’t like the idea of future generations enshrining ‘family jewels.’

    Hmm you know thats not a bad idea and its an origin story we haven seen it a million times before powers via tissue donation of a metahuman closest thing i can think of is she hulk

  7. Z2 says:

    Sooo… what does ‘spine sense’ do exactly?

  8. Genericname5A says:

    I spent many years being a blood donor despite a dislike of needles. When asked why, I wo7ld ask how else an ordinary person like myself could be a hero?
