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.  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.

It begins.

Happy New Year, everyone.

    I see Illumina lifting up,could it be seeing her supposedly deceased brother have anything to do with it?

  • Mujaki on December 30, 2015 at 8:00 AM

    @ Black Rose
    Illumina has been able to fly for a while.
    Just not more than 3 feet off the ground.

    Floating in Heels I

    Maybe a psychological block has been lifted?

  • Zodo on December 30, 2015 at 1:57 PM

    I don’t think that is’s so much flying, as she’s Defying Gravity.

  • Sidekickgirl on December 30, 2015 at 3:07 PM

    Well done. ::slow clap:: Well done.

  • Twitch on January 1, 2016 at 11:12 PM

    Something has change within her,
    Something is not the same
    She’s through playing by the rules
    Of someone else’s game

  • Prince Charon on January 4, 2016 at 9:12 PM

    Parts of her do that all the time.

  • Roguewing on December 30, 2015 at 8:37 PM

    Me, I’m seeing the look on her face.
    There’s a whoopin’ about to commence here

  • Nightmask on December 30, 2015 at 11:57 PM

    Heroic resolve activated, accessing latent potential, curb stomp battle to commence.

  • Freezer on January 5, 2016 at 3:50 AM

    “Evil sibling” probably is a bonus multiplier.

  • Freezer on January 5, 2016 at 3:54 AM

    That should’ve been a reply to Black Rose.

  • Black Rose on January 1, 2016 at 7:14 AM

    I’m wondering about the aftermath,will Illumina resign from the agency when they learn that her brother is both alive and a psychopath???

  • The passing critic on January 1, 2016 at 7:47 AM

    Annnnnd then the camera pans out and illuminas only exactly three feet off the ground XD.She gains points for having the secondary superpower of magically absorbing her own tears though ^^.

  • Burnitall on January 2, 2016 at 9:33 AM

    Wonder if her powers tie in to her emotions? Could be she can’t do much unless she’s mad and I’m not sure I’ve seen her really mad in this comic yet.

  • HAKKYOUNOTENSHI on January 2, 2016 at 11:33 PM

    This is going to be interesting. Last time we saw Illumina this angry she knocked Sparkle out with one punch. Granted Sparkle is honestly pretty incompetent when it comes to combat, and Delcan (Is he going by Gravity? Do we even know what he calls himself?) is likely to be someone who actually knows what he’s doing.

    BUT Illumina could possibly win a straight up fight here. She can ignore his gravity powers and that’s all we’ve ever seen him do (Granted it’s all he’s ever needed, but still), plus we don’t actually know how extensive Delcan’s injuries are in regards to mobility and fortitude (he might crumple with one well placed punch or he could have the pain tolerance of a rhino).

    One thing to say though: Congratulations Delcan. You have unleashed Scary Mack

  • xero on January 4, 2016 at 1:18 AM

    Vegeta what does the scanner say

  • Tilly the Hun on January 4, 2016 at 10:33 AM

    Her power level is over 9000!

  • norman728 on January 4, 2016 at 2:41 PM

    Illumina is starting to remind me of EMPOWERED who also when her Gumption is up can open up a big can of Whupass

  • Ragingagnostic on January 4, 2016 at 6:18 PM

    Her brother is not just a psychopath. He’s a whiny loser. I expected all this destruction to be about payback for something serious, like a supervillain hurting/killing someone he loved and a superhero(ine) mucking up the rescue. But, oh no, he’s ticked off because his face got ruined and none of the others want him to play their reindeer games any longer. All this destruction, all these buildings toppled and possibly civilians killed because you’re not a pretty boy any more? Suck it up, you baby! Illumina, rip off his ass and hand it to him on a platter. Give HIM a reason to cry.

  • Twitch on January 5, 2016 at 10:11 PM

    Okay, whiny loser is the wrong term. Yes, Delcan is being a true blue villain ‘I want it all to burn.’
    But you’re underestimating the trauma that facial scarring causes. If you have a strong stomach, read about acid attack victims; support network can make the different between life and death.

    Delcan had no network; he only reason he’s not killed himself is probably his rage. If he’s fighting ‘evil,’ he has a purpose that pushes him through the depression. It’s easier to break stuff and people than rebuild your whole life when you’re alone.

  • norman728 on January 4, 2016 at 9:33 PM

    Illumina tragically will have more family issues if her parent find out what she is going to have to do.

  • Burnitall on January 5, 2016 at 8:10 AM

    From the feel I got of her parents they’ll be way more upset about Him spoiling the family’s heroic image than anything Illumina might do to her brother.

  • norman728 on January 5, 2016 at 9:23 AM

    that’ll be part of it, but considering. how dismissive they are of her, they will somehow blame her for his fall

  • Dr. Mercurious on January 5, 2016 at 9:01 AM

    The problem is that Big Brother has a VERY valid point. The Hero Agency is all about appearance and image, with being heroic as a side effect. Also: honestly, regardless if Mack wins or loses I HOPE she finally gives up on being a useless pile of crap. We, the fans, all know that there’s someone COMPETENT lurking under all that self-hatred and have been waiting for it to come out and STAY out. Sidekick Girl can still be competent without Mack being a friggin’ boat anchor 99.9% of the time!

  • Twitch on January 5, 2016 at 10:13 PM

    Dear Author Ladies,

    DON’T KILL MACK!!

  • Shen on November 20, 2016 at 1:22 AM

    Is Mackenzie…going towards The Light?
