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 is, as they say, on.

No responses to “Another World XXXIII”

    I’m more on the edge of my seat for various other reasons.

    Yes. I am excited about Christmas.

    Now, this alternate reality… I’m guessing that Val got whatever power the Vigilante in the normal reality got. Which means that large quantities of ass will be kicked.

    LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!

    Yeah this fight will be interesting.
    Comic meta- discussion about to occur.

    I keep wondering: what is our Val gonna be taking home from this trip and extended story arc? A moral perspective? A new viewpoint? A little wisdom? A power? So far it’s just been abuse and diminished importance.
    Everything about this trip (maybe E&L’s thought, length, and effort in it) seems to imply some significant change coming for SG. When we left, Mack was having issues with being a hero, feeling that she (and her sidekick, one might conclude) wasn’t the hero the city needed. Val disagreed but really had made little progress in making her point to Mack.

    Then the entire universe steps up and seemingly tries to make Mack’s point for her. EVERYTHING about this trip would seem to rub our nose in Mack’s view of the situation: Val is only useful as a disposable key, she’s publicly belittled by super powered Bitch-ray Val; basically… the world is throwing Mack’s point right in Val’s face.
    Yet somehow this ties to the greater arc.

    All of this abuse means something to the writer, even if we haven’t seen it yet.
    Something important to the comic is coming.

    Well the big question is, since Val’s universe has a Dark, where’s the Light?

  • Joe Outside on December 29, 2013 at 2:23 AM

    My guess is that Illumina’s brother would have been the Light.

    Perhaps she’s getting a glimpse of the vigilante’s powerset so that she knows what they’re dealing with in her own universe, making it possible to catch/stop him? Only occurred to me because you made the connection between the Dark and the vigilante in your comment 😐

    On the other hand, maybe Val will now get a completely different message, and figure that the vigilante is right, the “Heros” are wrong, and join up with him? It’ll be interesting to see where this goes.
