Sidekick Girl

Saving the City: Sans-Spandex

We have decided to move to an every other week schedule from now until the end of the year. We’ve been struggling to get back to once a week on time comics with everything that’s been going on, between one or both of us on overtime, the season for our nonprofit ramping up, and general brain fatigue.  Because, you know, 2020.

There will be a comic this coming Wednesday (9/30) and then every other week after that, with filler during November as per usual.

It's about to get real, guys.

Hero dating is really hard.  You can try to schedule around your shifts all you want, but when the superweapon is deployed, it doesn’t matter if you’re off the clock…

    …you ladies love to tease the readers.

  • Sidekickgirl on April 16, 2015 at 2:01 AM

    This is nothing compared to the teasing going on in the sketchbook we’re releasing this month. Awwww, yeah.

    Isaura’s outfit is awesome. Many points for no boob window. Extra points for not having each boob outlined ala Catwoman.

  • Spliced on April 16, 2015 at 1:07 AM

    Damn.

  • Jordan on April 16, 2015 at 3:17 AM

    They’re both so pretty…

  • livvy on April 16, 2015 at 5:35 AM

    That last panel is classic-Val-pissed face. Love it.

    I kinda found this comic when this was the first page up, so totally thought that Isaura was the Sidekick Girl. I have since gone back into the archives and know she is not, but still for at least a couple seconds I was really confused

  • livvy on April 16, 2015 at 5:28 PM

    Oops. Yeah this would be a confusing arc to start on.

  • Sidekickgirl on April 16, 2015 at 5:46 PM

    We did consider that new readers starting on this arc might be a little befuddled at first, but we didn’t want to clutter up all the pages with an explanation. We figure y’all won’t have too much trouble sussing it out.

    Apparently Isaura/o is hot in every universe.

  • livvy on April 18, 2015 at 3:31 PM

    Is Val short for Valentine in this case?

  • Sidekickgirl on April 19, 2015 at 5:45 PM

    Yep!

  • Mike on April 20, 2015 at 12:49 AM

    Of course in this universe Val’s friends didn’t give him any grief because the male hero seducing the female villain is traditional.

  • jack on April 20, 2015 at 12:55 PM

    Not necessarily. Gender roles might be reversed in this dimension too……

  • Mike on April 22, 2015 at 5:57 AM

    Good point.

  • Lilli on April 20, 2015 at 4:05 AM

    I’m sure you guys have something great planned, but I really hope we get back to the real comic soon. I really didn’t have any burning desire to see the genderbent version of the comic. I was quite happy to find a comic with a strong, complex female protagonist. I’d like to get back to that.

  • livvy on April 22, 2015 at 2:21 AM

    I dunno. I think this foray is a great way of seeing how strongly Val’s character is written. ManVal is reacting and responding the same way RegVal would. That shows that Val is written as a person, not a specific sex. It’s neat to see.

    Cant wait till the sidekick girl Grrlpower crosover becomes thing

  • Princess Puffy Pants on April 23, 2015 at 12:56 PM

    The forum thread thingie said that there were probably never going to be any crossovers, ever, soooo….I think you’re kinda stuck waiting there……..

  • Ashonai on March 14, 2016 at 2:34 PM

    Val looks a lot like Peter Parker from Ultimate Spider Man in several of these panels… Something you’re not telling us about your drawing methods?

  • Katy on April 12, 2016 at 2:52 PM

    I’m rereading the archives and never fully appreciated Isaura’s henchwoman outfit before. I suspect this is her “everyday” henching outfit and she’s had to wear a few unfortunate ones with some villains (like a chainmail bikini).

  • w.h.y. on January 25, 2017 at 1:50 PM

    Now, don’t forget, you are totally right to break her legs if she tries anything.
