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.

PS: Fascism is bad

Now, COULD I have written, and then cut snippets out of, a report on the themes of the Hunger Games? I sure could have. Was I going to? Nope nope nope.

I think the gist comes across.

PS: Yes, I can see that the fascism is missing the S. I have to fix it but it will take a minute to deal with uploading the file again so I’ll do it tomorrow. Its work time

    Good luck guys. Oh and, I liked the project. Seems really topical, can’t wait to see how they propose to fix it

    Took me a moment to realize they were doing a report on their project, and Break wasn’t just talking normally with the dialogue shown being Make’s translation a la “What Dogs Hear” (

    Which would have been a lot more sinister.

    The comic kinda suffers from wall of text dialogue anyways so probably for the best for this page? lol

    I remember, in the (sadly, long-ago ended) anthro webcomic Doemain of Our Own, esoteric conversations like this were handled by filling the word balloons with “GEEK GEEK GEEK GEEK GEEK GEEK GEEK” or “MATH MATH MATH MATH MATH MATH MATH” or “ART ART ART ART ART ART ART ART ART” as appropriate.

    Also, this is a High School Project; one is not necessarily required to come up with a snap solution, just to model or describe it accurately. Especially with something as big as The Status Quo.
