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.

    Liefeld joke – not sure I approve, but it’s subtle enough I suppose. :-p Did like the designs throughout, though. Nicely drawn. 🙂

    Liefield joke doesn’t need an approval.

    I can’t draw extremities either, so I’m in no place to judge (then again, I don’t attempt to pass off my lack of art skills for profit), but WHAT is with Liefeld and pouches?

    I know it’s a little late (if you can call two years “a little’), but Liefeld was likely inspired by belts like this one:

    These types of belts were used by soldiers to carry ammo from WWI through the Vietnam War and beyond. This one in particular is a WWII-era cartridge belt for an M1 Garand. Given how often Liefeld’s characters used guns, it makes sense they’d want to carry a lot of ammo.

    I’m kinda partial to the 2nd, “simple” version. Looks very tough and kinda badass. Maybe not with the small eyemask though; Robins have worn that for enough decades that it still carries a feel of “sidekick”. (Then again, he still is one, so maybe that’s appropriate.)

    The second and third ones both look good to me. I don’t get what Hazel has against the third one.
