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.

No one could ever hate Moxie.  She is the best dog.  And it was her birthday!  She got a stuffed owl and half a chicken sammich.

Hi guys! It’s NaNoWriMo, and you know what that means! That’s right, Erika and Laura are crazy people trying to frantically make words all month long! Now, usually we have a contest in the fall and run the winners in November, but we didn’t do that this year. So we’re still going to have comics, but they’ll be simple ones. We’ve been thinking of this arc for a while, so now is an excellent time to use it.

Updates might be a little wonky, but you’re still going to get a page every week, and it should still be on Wednesdays.

    What does this one look like when applied to Val and Isauro, I wonder.

    And what about a relationship like Mist and Wolf, where that kind of thing is normal? Do they have some sort of alternative, or do they just have to do without because they can’t get their act together? (Insert pun about the dangers of crying wolf)

    Probably something mind-bogglingly sacarine that would make anyone actually familiar with the two of them scratch their heads in wonder…. XD

    I imagine the code between Val and Isauro is if she punches him in the face with the left hand, instead of the right…

    That is RIDICULOUS.

    Val is left handed. She ALWAYS punches left. 😛

    No wonder she’s fallen for a henchman. She prefers the sinister.

    *groan*

    Val would use “Im sick of your stupid accent”

  • Xero on November 21, 2017 at 9:07 AM

    And Isauro would be “you love that stupid bat more than me”

    I am skeptical of this plan. If I were a villain (and you don’t know that I’m not) a hero’s ex would be nearly as good to use as bait as a current love interest in my assessment.

    An angry ex would be more useful as an information sorce than hostage

    I’m highly doubtful that this actually fools any of the villains, especially in a world where this tactic is common enough to get into the handbook. Unless this is one of those unwritten rules, where it’s considered acceptable to target someone who is officially dating the hero’s secret identity, but targeting someone who they have officially broken up with (even if it’s painfully obvious that it’s faked), counts as going out of control and gets both sides to gang up on you.
