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.ย  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.

I wanted to think of something clever for here, but I just noticed that it's snowing outside and that upsets me.

Bros. The scariest bad guys.

    Val better be careful, though. Too much lift while flying and she could flash underboob.

  • Livvy on April 19, 2018 at 4:13 PM

    Ain’t no underboob threat when one is wearing a sports bra.

    Val, that is not how you deescalate a conflict. Order them to disperse, jump in, THEN crack a skull.

    Your hero corp. rep will thank you later.

    Totally right about the flying though, and I’m looking forward to seeing where this goes.

    In addition to the pure fun, the tactical advantage of being able tom airdrop Val exactly where she is needed in a fight will prove invaluable in combat.

    But yeah, flying is rad.

    I didnt realise dudebros were supervillains.More inportantly since theyre not actually fighting isnt attacking them assault?

    Normally fishnet ninjas aren’t supervillains either ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I see at least one deadly weapon being displayed. Threatening people with a knife is a crime.

  • Twitch on April 15, 2018 at 4:27 PM

    In my state, that’s a felony. (Good way to get shot by the police too.)
    Remember kids – webcomics bend the rules to help visually set the story. So… don’t draw or mention your weapon unless you’re willing to put your life and civil liberty on the line ;D

    They fight street things all the time. Not every tussle is with a supervillain.

  • Sidekickgirl on April 14, 2018 at 8:07 PM

    I would posit that dudebros are the most dangerous of villains. Dudebros exist.

  • Mischa Avros on April 15, 2018 at 2:08 PM

    I guess the only good thing about dudebro supervillans is that when they die, they stay dead. YOLO.

  • Khlovia on April 15, 2018 at 7:35 PM

    Dudebros are certainly more pervasive and more obnoxious than supervillains. I say fly down upon them boots-first whenever opportunity offers. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Besides, they want to fight *somebody*. Getting to fight official superheroes will give them much better street cred than fighting one another out of sheer boredom would have–even if (when) they lose.
