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.

Only the finest aged oak, for the discerning dudebro.

comic!

SE Michigan people, you’re coming to Penguicon, riiiiiight?

    Oh, second step to complete immortality. Next step: Rapid healing.
    Isauro should have become a vampire after all.

    Unless you watched the Highlander films,pray no one lops off Val’s head…!

    Fourth panel: Quiet, you stupid assailant. We’re talking here.

    That’s not QUITE how “you have the right to remain silent” is supposed to work.

    LOL. Punches him out with the same arm he hit. Just to make a point.

    Does Mack not know how tough Val really is? I thought she knew Val was effectively Superhero ranked in ability. Guess Val has been keeping it hidden.

    Val wasn’t that tough before. This is a new development. Just as Mack has acquired new power, so has Val.

    If I remember right Val got run over by a car and broke most of her bones , but did not die, and healed at a normal rate. So she may not know if now her bones are harder to brake. Maybe when she gets hurt, she heals so she can not get hurt that way again.

  • T'Renn on May 2, 2018 at 12:47 AM

    @Gene: That’s not a bad thought; it would make her powerset like a (slightly less Kryptonian and considerably more personable) version of Doomsay.

    On the other hand, it’s also possible that Val and Mac’s XP advancement was linked when they teamed up, so when Mac had her angst-induced epiphany, Val also gained new abilities. However, since up to now most of her character sheet has been passive abilities, she never thought to look at it, and only just realized now that the GM basically telegraphed it to her. 😀

    Or low level radiation from Mac’s light powers is uping the Dark powers of Val and she is making her way towards being a partner rather than just a sidekick.

    Can we all just appreciate how disappointed this mook looks? Like, he really wanted to be that lucky guy who manages to knock out a sidekick, and then this one just happens to be tough enough that your weapon breaks off on her.

  • Dread Pirate on May 10, 2018 at 6:54 PM

    Oh no, I just now realized this comic uses Alt Text. Now I’m going to have to go back through the entire archive. Awesome!

    “But this was real wood. This was solid wood.”

    Unless he thinks Val is a Golden Age Green Lantern, I don’t see how that helps.
