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.

yeah, that's pretty heavy

comic!

    Wonder what Val will tell Aliya on how to handle Tim…!?!?

    “Wonder what Val will tell Aliya on how to handle Tim…!?!?”

    “First. get yourself a bat.”

    First of all, she’s trying to give him the benefit of the doubt by not immediately going to LEO, but instead discussing it with a trusted adult. Progress!

    Second, she’s clearly indicating she wants to be able to trust Make in spite of her instincts and experiences because she might think rehabilitation is possible. More progress!

    And with luck, Val’s sense of responsibility will help her not project her disappointment in Isauro onto Make.

    She’ll say you can’t. Breaker won’t trust maker. She might even break his design that he works hard on for his dad, making him not trust her anymore, and making Breaker come crying back to Mack. No idea if that will make her take back Issaru, especially since I’m still feeling like part of the reason it hit her so hard was because other Mack told her not to.

    ….and if this comment actually didn’t have an error posted, I’ll be surprised.

    Oh yeah THAT comment finally posts without a website error, when I get tenses wrong and say “especially” rather than “even though”

    “First. get yourself a bat.”

    To be fair, that’s going to be Val’s first advice rather a lot.

    I’m just picturing Val responding to everything with that.

    “Thank you Val, a bat does sound useful. But I really did want to know whether you wanted to split a dessert with me.”

  • Black Rose on August 6, 2020 at 11:23 AM

    Val should mention Isauro when discussing Tim(Make)….in passing!

  • Foradain on August 6, 2020 at 12:04 PM

    Also, Break? I think you’re asking Val the wrong question. How can you know someone is untrustworthy unless you trust them?

  • Zengar on August 7, 2020 at 2:17 PM

    Looking back over the last couple of pages, it suddenly struck me. “Making” and “Breaking” is the basis for these two’s relationship. what if this is a (clumsy) atempt at flirting…

    There’s no need to actually build the thing and causes property damage in a battle for him to design it and for her to find it’s flaws…

  • Xero on August 14, 2020 at 7:29 AM

    She should say to him “im willing to belive you but i need you to show me the prototype

  • Golnor on August 18, 2020 at 7:28 PM

    Aww, I caught up.
