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.

Plasma blades: scary. Pissed off Val? Much scarier.

Yeah, henchman employee handbooks tend to stay mum on the whole sexual harrassment clause thing…

    Hats off to Coldfire!

    I don’t think Sparkle is going to let him go that easily, she seems like the type to hold a grudge.

    There’s got to be a protocol for a bad guy turning good… it’s probably only for villians though.

    I shouldn’t think so, actually… Lots of archetypal stories end with the primary villain’s lieutenant turning on them. Usually for the love of a hero(ine), in fact!

    Awesome! Way to do the right/smart thing!

    Sparkle strikes me as a villain whose just in it for the ‘glamour’ and excitement, thinking herself like Catwoman and other comic femme fatales.
    Good job Coldfire, way to be an honourable gentleman.

    Give that guy a blue card already.

    You’ll noticed he asked politely before shoving her off of him. Just saying.

    S’true. I’da punched her in the bits WELL before the ear thing.

    Oh. I think I must be blind, I couldn’t find the comment section for a while.

    Yay Coldfire.

    Also yay Sparkle as an Archnemesis.

    But is above him from a hierarchical standpoint as her boss-contractor, so using señora would not be innapropriate, specially to emphatize cool formality.

    Senorita. Sparkle is unmarried.
