Saving the City: Sans-Spandex

There WILL be a comic this week! It’s almost done. Guess who did a twelve hour day making packzi the other night! that’s right, it was me. Should be up tomorrow afternoon.

Laura’s been dealing with family emergency for the last weekish, so no regular comic next week. I’ll come up with some sort of ridiculous filler.

I kinda want to be on that picnic.

An elemental small business owner with a passion for baked goods.  An inked and pierced werewolf with commitment issues.  They fight crime!

Rowan and Morgaine met in hero school.  They were friends who began sort of dating when an evening of poor decision making led to Little Ro.  Since then they’ve been in an on again, off again relationship as Mo raises their son.

Clearly, this is one of the happy times.  Rowan loves his son and they have a good time together when he isn’t being an irresponsible jerk due to his own insecurities.

Fun fact:  Rowan’s power is that he is a genetic specific metamorph.  He can take the shape of any animal, as long as he has ever touched one of them, and it’s not smaller than a housecat.  He always changes into the same animal, which is specific to him, and not necessarily exactly the same as the source animal.  For example, his dog shape is a german shepherd, even though his source of dog DNA was a beagle.  The wolf is his one of his favorite and most  often used shapes, and he takes his code name from that.

    Rowan’s power only has a lower size boundary?
    I cannot wait for him to whale on someone.

    Being male, I am conflicted about Rowan’s relationship with his son. I will never condone someone who runs out on his kid, but that’s now what he’s done. On the other hand, according to the authors, he’s not always there for his son.

    I would personally “man up” for my son, whether I loved his mother or not. But I came from a family where my parents got divorced and my father fought insurmountable odds to gain custody of my brother and I. Because of my dad, I can’t wrap my mind around a man who wouldn’t man up and do what’s right by the kid, whether he’s in love with the mother or not. But from this picture, we see that he has manned up, and is in love with the mom.

    I need more context as to how much or how little Rowan is involved in Ro’s life before I judge him too harshly.

    By “man up”, I guess you mean marrying the woman? News flash: Divorce happens when, and, because, it’s better than the alternative. And even an alternate-Saturdays dad is better that one who’s “stuck” in a marriage they don’t want, resentful, and eventually probably cheating on their wife.

    That child’s sock needs a darn.
