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.

Too sad for funny alt text

A bonus comic for you.

    I really like this one. This is the biggest vote of confidence I’ve seen from the Hero Agency, telling Val that she is valued, and needed.

  • Ragingagnostic on July 13, 2016 at 11:21 AM

    Nonsense. He’s just massaging her ego. Unless this damage control detail comes with a pay increase or upgrade to superhero, it’s pure bollocks.

  • Chris on July 8, 2016 at 7:20 AM

    Agreed. I also like that he suggests that she contact her friends. It’s good to have backup, and eyewitnesses.

    Holy. . . I suddenly like this guy!

    Its interesting that Greys taking the risky route given how he normally acts.Idve expected him to pass the buck elsewhere especially since this path will hurt the agency at a time when it could really do with some good PR to fix it image.

    Though I do wonder what Shivers reasons are for what hes been apparently doing,Very few people see themselves as the badguy afterall.That said Id find it hilarious if Greys info is actually from an incredibly biased account.Heaven knows if you gave me five minutes I could make illumina look like a disaster waiting to happen,Heck I could do it in one ^^.

    Agree with “The passing critic” entirely. It’s great to see the agency actually APPRECIATING Val for a change!

    I can’t wait to see Val hand this murdering &*#%^!! a good beatdown.

    Okay now THIS is the kind of damage control I can get behind. Unlike the previous city’s super-hero management we get to see that they’re going to do the thing proper law-enforcement should do in such a situation, gather sufficient evidence to ensure the criminal can’t continue in his criminal ways at least not while falsely claiming to be a hero. This should be quite interesting to see how it plays out, hopefully he won’t get to escape justice by willingly transferring to another hero agency in the meantime (then again we know if you require permission for reassignment that they’ll never give it to him here knowing what they know about him).

    Nice. Damage control Val style and building a solid case to kick him out. I’m suddenly looking forward to this story line.

  • Dark Matter on July 9, 2016 at 7:00 AM

    The nasty part about dealing with supers is ‘firing’ them doesn’t normally take away their powers. This guy isn’t going to blame himself when this is ‘over’.

  • JasonAW3 on July 11, 2016 at 12:33 AM

    I seriously doubt that they’ll just fire hi , but would, in fact, jail him for his infractions and incompetence. It would be ironic justice if he wound up in a prison along with many of those he’s injured in the past.

  • Freak on July 12, 2016 at 7:27 PM

    It probably would have been better if he’d let Val know about this beforehand.

  • Ed Rhodes on July 12, 2016 at 9:13 PM

    Maybe he was hoping the information WAS “biased” since he didn’t have anything concrete to support it. Now, having seen this incident, he’s knows it’s time to get a paper trail going and stop this guy from doing any more damage or going anywhere else to start over again.

  • Eric on July 13, 2016 at 6:59 AM

    I can’t help but wonder how long this “paper trail” has to be before anything happens?

  • Storel on July 24, 2016 at 3:47 AM

    Ahh, good. This guy doesn’t want to cover it up like the last town’s branch of the Agency did. Excellent. As others have said, SG should tell him “This increased responsibility better come with an increase in pay!”
