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.

DUDE.

Speaking of costumes, it’s almost Halloweeeeeeen!

    That could have gone much worse. I guess Jas is warming up to him.

    What did Jasper mean by that?

  • Sean Duggan on October 18, 2017 at 7:39 AM

    I think the “Not cool” is for wearing an identical costume and looking good in it without a girdle. The reason Jasper is a sidekick is that (like most power-lifters), he has a protruding gut.

    Jasper’s gut featured in an early strip: http://sidekickgirl.net/bar-scene-ii/

    But with the glasses on, how on earth did Jasper recognize him?

  • The passing critic on October 18, 2017 at 10:15 AM

    Cant see why he has to hide at a hero con since hes apparently already been booked for previous crimes and is thus a citisen and not a facepunching target but what the hey?Bad form Jasper!Dont you know its against the rules to recognise secret idenities?XD

    Panel 4 is the best awkward smile I’ve ever seen in my life

    The pseudo-Robin and hairdo combo look totally like something Ilumina might put on while trying variant styles. 😛

    And speaking of Halloween and costumes, usually when I look up sidekick girl on google, you guys are the first hit, but today it suggested: https://www.halloweencostumes.ca/womens-sidekick-girl-costume.html Silly copyright work arounds, don’t they know that that isn’t even close to Sidekick Girl’s costume? Now I feel the need to draw Val wearing this (at least she’ll get to wear shorts that are longer than the original the knock off is base on!)

    @Kia, The Sidekick Girl costume is supposed to be a ripoff of Robin.

    But the bit with Jasper and Isauro is hilarious. And it’s nice that Jasper is warming up to him (somewhat). Jasper could have made a scene and probably made trouble for Ro, but didn’t.

    Oh I know (that’s where the short shorts comment came from, cus the knock of has longer pants than the ones Robin wears) I just think it would be funny for sidekick girl to wear that exact knock off outfit.

  • David Johnston on October 19, 2017 at 8:13 PM

    We don’t actually know he recognizes Isauro.

  • billydaking on October 22, 2017 at 5:40 PM

    We do. That’s why it’s “not cool.” Of all of the people to dress up as…. 🙂

  • David Johnston on October 22, 2017 at 5:47 PM

    It’s not cool because he’s wearing the same costume with the sixpack that Tornado Boy wishes he had.
