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.

Wouldn't it be scarier if Mack DID understand string theory?

    Haze is adorable.

    If you weren’t an ocean away, I’d bake you cookies and mail ’em.

    As someone who expresses her emotion through baked goods, I thank you.

    A great story arc. Really enjoyed it. By the by the Viagra add is gone on my home computer but it still comes up when I visit via smart phone. Are you hunting down the hacker for messy elimination?

    The gobbltygook is due to security gaps in comicspress, and would return eventually even if removed. Which is why Jason is working on a new site design that will not rely on that system, and hopefully not have the same security issues.

    Love Val’s short hair, still if she went with the crew cut what are the odds people will call her “dyke” or “lesbo”?

  • sidekickgirl on April 9, 2014 at 4:40 PM

    Absolutely zero. We would never write that into our comic, and any commenters saying such would get a one way ticket to bans-ville. We don’t put up with that kind of BS.

    If anyone ever DID say it I imagine they’d get a very thorough lesson in manners from Mr. Bat II.

    But creator says it’s not gonna happen, so all we can do is speculate.

  • Dark Rose on April 10, 2014 at 7:49 AM

    So,there are no LGBT characters..?

  • Laura on April 10, 2014 at 12:37 PM

    Yes, there are LGBT characters in this comic. That has nothing to do with the fact that we wouldn’t write people using offensive language against the community in our comic.

  • Dark Rose on April 12, 2014 at 7:45 AM

    Thanks for clearing that up! 🙂

  • David Johnston on April 13, 2014 at 2:35 PM

    Now I’m imagining a supervillain raising the issue of Val’s sexual persuasion followed by a Seinfeldian “Not that there’s anything wrong with that.”

  • SolCannibal on April 10, 2014 at 12:09 AM

    Haze is REALLY overthinking it – the fact Val doesn’t know how it is done DOES NOT mean future/alter Mack is ignorant of its potential and possible complications in its use. Or that mainstream Mack will ever develop the same capacity.

    Though worth watching out for certainly.

    The universe may be self correcting and “heal” possible paradox.
    It may only work cross-universe, bypassing any paradox.
    Mack may have unknown depth in that universe- a special sense, deep knowledge, who knows? It’s hard to read too much into an event that happened somewhere else with someone you don’t know…

    I was just surprised no one said “Pics or it didn’t happen!”…

  • The Wyrm Ouroboros on April 10, 2014 at 5:14 AM

    Well, if you control light …

    … though it would appear Our Good Creatrices are going with time travel functionally equates to d-hopping, which I heartily endorse. Keeps things simpler …

    … which apparently Haze doesn’t necessarily think is true. 😉

  • Dark Rose on April 10, 2014 at 3:40 PM

    How many pages will this chapter run?

  • Laura on April 16, 2014 at 11:55 PM

    I want to squeeze Jasper’s bicep in the fourth panel so hard.

  • The Occupant on April 21, 2014 at 10:06 PM

    ‘slep at night’? I assume you mean sleep, yes?

  • HiEv on April 29, 2014 at 4:20 AM

    Also “perspn” instead of “person”.
