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.

Nope, not Sparkle...probably...

Ok, guys, awkward confession time.  It seriously did not occur to either of us until I JUST NOW uploaded the comic that the storyline involving a bad guy toppling buildings is running TODAY.  Honestly, the coincidence might have completely escaped my notice had I not been looking right at the date on today’s comic in conjunction with its dialog.  I thought about just posting it as is and not saying anything unless someone mentioned it, then I figured that it would probably be better to address it and move on.

First, please believe that we did NOT plan this in any way, shape, or form.  We did the layouts for this arc about six months ago, long before we had planned what to do for the 400 page celebration, let alone what dates the updates would fall on.  Also, the comic is not related to terrorism, nor is it a commentary on any real-world politics.

We understand that this is a sensitive subject, and that there are some folks who might feel that posting this comic today is upsetting, or in poor taste.  We hope that you accept our apologies: it was not our intention to make this difficult day any harder.

We do ask that the comments section be reserved for discussion on the comic.  We welcome those who would like to have discussions on 9/11 or share stories to do so on the forum, where they’ll be easier to keep up with once this is no longer the front page.  Keeping the light-hearted comic discussion and the more solemn topics separate will be a lot better for both topics, honestly.

 

On that note, hey, check out this villain!  Pretty scary, huh?

    Oh crap, I hadn’t realized that all! Thanks for clarifying it though.

    I wonder if we’ve met this person before? I can’t think of anyone at the moment with that color eyes, so I’ll guess no for now.

    Dion aka poison has green eyes and we don’t know what happened to him since he got sent to jail if I remember correctly

    Well, that mask explains why he took down two buildings. Poor depth perception.

    He reminds me more of Moon Knight.

    The hero/villain institutions in this world are both kind of wack.

    I’d suspect Poison but this guy is speaking.
