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.

baaaaaad move

Look out for that smile…

    Welp, he’s just stupid.

  • alurker on July 27, 2016 at 3:57 AM

    “Thank you. That’s just the excuse I needed.”

  • Tomy Ironmane on July 27, 2016 at 5:14 AM

    That…. ohhhh, dear. She’s smiling. Anyone remember her smiling before…? I don’t think I’ve ever seen her with a big shit eating grin like that before.

    Frankly, it’s scary.

  • Dex on July 30, 2016 at 12:08 PM

    During her origin bit it showed her smiling while subduing a class mate

    [chanting] YOU FUCKED UP! YOU FUCKED UP!

  • Phantomskyler on July 27, 2016 at 5:28 AM

    Aaaand boom goes the dynamite.

    *grabs popcorn for next week* This is gonna be good.

  • NightLillith on July 27, 2016 at 5:59 AM

    *Next Comic*

    *Eight panels of Val-flavored ultraviolence*

  • cyberwolf77 on July 27, 2016 at 6:42 AM

    Well, at least his powers will keep his corpse fresh until the coroner gets there.

  • Black Rose on July 27, 2016 at 7:23 AM

    GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!!!

  • The Aussie Bloke on July 27, 2016 at 7:35 AM

    Cue her sidekick buddies and their heroes popping up, with cameraphones having recorded the whole thing. Then watch his head implode as he realises that just dun fucked up.

  • Tomy Ironmane on July 27, 2016 at 10:09 PM

    Nah, Most force that can be exerted against his skull is 15 PSI… and frankly, he’s usually under that much vacuum pressure from sucking so hard. His lil head won’t implode unless Val tenderizes it some with Mr Bat first.

  • Nightmask on July 27, 2016 at 7:57 AM

    Oh but I’m looking forward to this! Her expression totally says it all, he just gave her cart blanche to work him over within the rules and the law. He’s gotten way too used to getting away with whatever he wanted to do and now it’s finally going to bite him big time.

  • The passing critic on July 27, 2016 at 9:19 AM

    Holy crap the guys stupider than I thought!This is literally the one thing he could have done to get his arse fired instantly.Great now im wondering if the villains agency has a more direct way of dealing with problem employees(possibly involving sniper rifles).

  • Chris on July 27, 2016 at 10:23 AM

    What a dumbass. Val has a BAT, and knows how to use it. He’s going to become the Human Piñata!

    I would not be surprised if The Aussie Bloke is correct, and Val’s sidekick friends show up with cameras. Ooh, Shiver is in for a world of trouble!

  • Adon on July 27, 2016 at 10:23 AM

    Oh lordy… did he really just do that? He hasn’t bothered to learn that she is only a sidekick because she has a slim figure and unflashy powers, because otherwise she’s so qualified it hurts? Yeah, the grin says it all. “You just gave me carte blanche, dumbass.”

  • Sean Holland on July 27, 2016 at 1:48 PM

    Shiver may be an idiot but he is also an idiot with a lot of power, it will not be an easy fight . . . if he realizes that he just provoked one.

  • J on July 27, 2016 at 2:03 PM

    Now, do we get to watch the beatdown? Or do we just get to watch the ambulance leave?

    And no, Shiver has no idea what he just did. He’s the sort who thinks that sidekicks are there to fill out paperwork and make the hero look good.

    He and Mr. Bat are going to have a nice, long talk. There will be pointy expletives. And a lot of high pitched whining.

  • Ie Yamof Ool on July 27, 2016 at 3:40 PM

    “I just got out of a meeting with your boss. He said the next time you screwed up, like you just did, I get to do this!”

  • Ragingagnostic on July 27, 2016 at 4:41 PM

    While I’d very much like to see Val rip off this jerk’s testicles and make him eat them, I have to agree with The Aussie Bloke. This isn’t the time for revenge. Her buddies need to show up with cameras and recording equipment. “It’s called a hustle, sweetheart. Boom.”

  • livvy on July 30, 2016 at 7:11 AM

    That’s assuming the city isn’t already rigged with a CCTV like camera system. In a worod with superheroes, I’d imagine it is. “Hero Cam” would be the best channel to tune in on all your favorite heroes superaction.

  • JasonAW3 on July 27, 2016 at 8:44 PM

    Face meet bat, bat meat face!

    Shiver is about to become frozen hamburger!

  • Jordan on July 28, 2016 at 4:29 AM

    Oh Shiver… You done goofed. Now Val is going to fuck you up VERY thoroughly, both physically and professionally.

  • Pickle3719 on July 28, 2016 at 8:48 AM

    From what I’ve seen of this series, most supers can pretty much do as they please and sidekicks are considered third class after the villians.

  • Andorxor on July 28, 2016 at 6:37 AM

    I am sure they can fire him from the agency for this,at least at most jobs you get fired when you hit a coworker.

  • LeapYean on July 28, 2016 at 7:53 AM

    “You done Fucked up son.”

    Val just remember these simple words “Yes officer, I feared for my life and I used the force I deemed necessary at the time.”

    Or you could fight back, pull your punches a whole lot and let him freeze you ass solid your powers will keep you from dieing and he gets his villain card.

  • LeapYean on July 28, 2016 at 7:55 AM

    Either way I am very much looking forward to see how this gets wrapped up.

  • Pickle3719 on July 28, 2016 at 8:44 AM

    He! He! He!
    Take your time drawing out this beat down please.
    Two or three pages of pain.

  • Anarchyant on July 28, 2016 at 9:23 AM

    Just insert Mr Bat where the sun don’t shine. Will help him get acquainted to it when he finally gets to prison.

  • Sario528 on July 28, 2016 at 9:33 AM

    I’m calling it right now, next page we’re going to see a very angry and newly empowered Illumina show up and watch her smack Icehole into next week for daring to lay a hand on her sidekick.

  • Zaytak on July 28, 2016 at 11:09 AM

    That smile… reminds me of the bit in Kick-Ass 2 where Hit Girl gets injected with Adrenaline.
    If what happened in the film happens here I will not be unhappy 🙂

  • Brad on July 29, 2016 at 8:48 PM

    I’m thinking that Mr. Louisville Slugger is going to be somewhere uncomfortable in a panel or two

  • Sprainogre on July 30, 2016 at 2:07 AM

    … That is such an interesting way to phrase a suicide note…

  • The Dark Lord Skepticism on July 31, 2016 at 3:54 AM

    All I am doing is giggling like a little kid on Christmas morning, about to open up the biggest present hidden behind the tree.

  • The Other Mike on August 1, 2016 at 6:44 AM

    Here’s a hint, icehole. When someone you just punched in the face grins like that, RUN. (Not that he’ll have the sense to do that.)

  • That Swedish Guy on August 1, 2016 at 10:05 AM

    To quote Alucard in TFS Hellsing Abridged. “Ya done goofed.”

  • xero on August 2, 2016 at 8:05 AM

    Im betting that intentonally hitting your side kick is a big nono

    But before that DING DING ROUND ONE!
