Sidekick Girl

Saving the City: Sans-Spandex

No comic this week.  Erika’s dog has gone from getting diagnosed with giant tumor, to emergency surgery where we expected either lose her or have to put her down from cancer, to miraculously coming through and now maybe is going to be okay…in less than 48 hours.  I am physically and emotionally SPENT.

Who else can't believe that it's March already?

Not this day…

    Mack lifts them up, and then Val has pinatas!

    Ooh, wow. In addition to learning her powers better, She’s gotten a ‘tude, too!

    And I like her new mask. Instead of a stick-on domino, it’s a wraparound, that seems to incorporate her hair tie.

    I also think that Val is enjoying this a bit.

    This whole page just makes me smile with anticipation. Tho, it does say quite a bit about Illumina’s reputation that they run from the *sidekick* and not her.

  5. Black Rose says:

    Does it look like Mack’s going hard core?!?!?

    “Sweetheart”? Oh, he deserves a thumping just for that!

    Why do I feel like I’ll love the next panel?

    • T'Renn says:

      Because you’re preceptive. I expect that Val is also going to love the next panel, even though I don’t expect Mr. Bat to get any action.

      I figure that Val probably has a bucket of popcorn just off panel there, and intends to enjoy this show. For one thing she doesn’t have to worry about Mack engaging in horribly disproportionate retribution, the way a certain ice-hole did.

      Also, once she’s made clear Illumina has taken a level or two in badass, I don’t see Mack hogging all the pummeling action. Well, not until the inevitable “Dark Illumina” storyline. 😉

    But T’Renn, wouldn’t “Dark Illumina” be an oxymoron?

    • T'Renn says:

      Kogarashi, just when has little details like “paradox” or “oxymoron” stopped things from happening in comics? 😀

    Just found the comic again recently after a few years, super glad it’s still going. 🙂

    This has been a pretty epic turn of events lately.

    Now this is looking innnnnteresteeeeeng!Though youd think the random thugs kneejerk reaction to seeing illumina would be “Crap!If shes around the goddamn batgirls about to get us!”.Still a good training wheel experience will be good for Illuminas self esteem and its nice to see that shes now taking the hero dealy a lot more seriously ^^.

    Coldfire is an oxymoron
