Sidekick Girl

Saving the City: Sans-Spandex

You’ve probably noticed that updates have been a bit sporadic lately.  This is likely to continue for a while.  The combination of new work hours and our busy time of year means that while we’re still going to shoot for Wednesdays, it might wind up being Thursdays sometimes.  On the plus side, we’re going to try to avoid our yearly November break, because we’re crazy people, and we don’t want to pause this very important arc.  We might do a short break once it wraps up.We’ll keep you updated, and thanks for your patience.

The dripping blood kind of takes away from the dramatic pose there, mr jaw brokey man

Ooo, now she’s being SASSY.

  1. Well, at least he shut up finally. But I see now he has a few more tricks up his sleeve besides “deep freezing” people.

  2. Jordan says:

    Val, NOW might be a good time to stop playing around and knock him the fuck out. As therapeutic as it might be to beat the crap out of him, he’s way too dangerous to play around with.

    • Ragingagnostic says:

      I agree. I guess we can stop expecting any of her colleagues to leap out of hiding holding a camera. This guy needs to be put on ice.

  3. Zodo says:

    I’m not sure I get what’s happening in the last 3 panels. I get that Val is getting blasted back, but what is imparting that force?

  4. skythorn says:

    I think Val is jumping back then jumping up as the sheet of ice gets frozen over the ground – I think it’s an angry ‘shock and awe’ approach that probably is not as smart as just doing a big old wall of icey freeze.

  5. Black Rose says:

    Should Val start making plans to find a new career???

    • Coriolis says:

      Why is her career in danger? This is the very situation the Agency expected, and prepared her for.

      • Black Rose says:

        Suppose Shiver had a plan of his own and Val gets charged with insubordination???
        Unless the Hero Agency doesn’t use that charge?!?!

      • JasonAW3 says:

        Val’s pretty much just defending herself from a “hero” gone rogue. The Agency is aware of the issues he’s caused in the past, so what he’s doing now is simply digging the hole deeper and deeper.

  6. Black Rose says:

    About that graffiti,shouldn’t there be SOME allusions to the Watchmen,whereas the graffiti says “WHO WATCHES THE WATCHMEN”!?!?

  7. Nightmask says:

    Shiver’s idea of a plan is deciding how he’s going to main or murder his latest victim due to his arrogance courtesy of having gotten away with it repeatedly before the idea he’d have a plan to get Val in trouble for insubordination isn’t even a possibility he just doesn’t think that way. As far as he was concerned Sidekick Girl was just another career sidekick and all sidekicks exist to serve their heroes without questioning them in any fashion, so he’s simply way outside his comfort zone for what he felt was reality with being stood up to by his sidekick and worse her actually treating him like the villain he is.

  8. NightLillith says:

    HAH! Terrain control!

  9. Alex Boston says:

    Wait, is Shiver ignorant of Val’s “unkillable” super-power? Because if so, Shiver thinks he wins if he kills the annoying sidekick who could gainsay whatever story he comes up with, and then gets the shock of his life when Val revives to testify against him.

  10. Nightmask says:

    Hard to say, Shiver might have just skipped over the section on Sidekick Girl’s power or he might think that if he does enough damage with his power he might be able to overcome her regenerative abilities and kill her anyway. Not that he seem to spend any time thinking since even if he could kill her the fact she was killed by him (because there’s no way he could cover that up) when she’s a stellar record as a sidekick would make it quite clear that it was murder rather than justified.

  11. Cyggles says:

    SG’s acting a bit too smug and superior in this fight, it’s annoying me.

    • After several years of having to put up with idiots and psychopaths being considered “heroes” and having to put up with the BS of being a qualified hero but forced into the subservient “sidekick” role, and having to pretend to be a lesser person in comparison to jackasses like Shiver, I think she earned being a little smug.

      She’s had to put up with the Hero Association’s crap for years, and she can now (legally) let out that frustration on a very deserving target.
