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.

My nerdness has many facets.

I have a hard time imagining dating a non-gamer. Not that a guy would have to share all my hobbies, but this is a pretty big one for me that I spend a lot of time on. And if he wasn’t a nerd at all? Look, I’m sure you’re very nice and all, but what would we talk about?

    I haven’t done any tabletop gaming in years… maybe decades 8-(… but I still enjoy reading about it online, like this, and I could definitely hold up my end of a conversation about it. And I’m a computer programmer, so no question of my nerdism in general. (You should see my science fiction and fantasy library!)

    Okay, in panel one, who else is hearing the dice-throwing sound effect from the alternate-universe part of Bender’s Game?

    Test! (Some folks are getting an error when they try to post comments.)

    My wife is about as far from a nerd as you can get. She and I like almost none of the same things. But she supports my nerdiness. And I support her. Somehow it works.

    I could see dating a non-gamer, but not someone who disdained or (non-jokingly) disrespected the game. And they’d need to try at least one game.

    If you’re great at the game, you don’t need Natural 20s to succeed!

    My wife shares almost none of my hobbies, including gaming. We make it work. I have friends I can talk to about that kind of stuff. She has her things and I have mine. It works. I’m not sure how exactly, but it does.
