Saving the City: Sans-Spandex

You’ve probably noticed that updates have been a bit sporadic lately.  This is likely to continue for a while.  The combination of new work hours and our busy time of year means that while we’re still going to shoot for Wednesdays, it might wind up being Thursdays sometimes.  On the plus side, we’re going to try to avoid our yearly November break, because we’re crazy people, and we don’t want to pause this very important arc.  We might do a short break once it wraps up.We’ll keep you updated, and thanks for your patience.

And thus ends the Laura-Only-To-Buy-Some-Spine-Healing-Time comics.

Regular comic starts up again next Wednesday!

    Glad to have you back…! 🙂

    If something like this should happen again,would Laura consider using guest artists while recovering?

    In the words of my late Great-Uncle Winfred, “Donate my body to science. That way I’ll make at least five new friends who will never forget me.”

    Even if you have a disease that prevents you from being ‘parted out,’ you can still donate your body to a medical school. It makes better sense to be helping in a classroom than decomposing in some overly expensive box.

    Erika’s injury has no affect on my ability to draw, so a guest artist would not be necessary.

      I read that post and heard a deadly calm Maggie Smith.

      @Dark Rose. Artist and the colorist are two different skill sets. Oddly, it seems to be harder to have a guest colorist match work than a guest line artist. It’s also a bear if they want to publish book compilations of the comic. They’d have to credit/pay the guest, or Erika would need to recolor the all the guest pages.

    Now, here’s a question, nay, a CHALLENGE:

    I’m not allowed to donate blood for the next year because of the cadaver bone used in my surgery. So, who’s going to go in my place?

  5. Kristin says:

    My plan: donate what I can (ie what they’ll actually accept), burn and scatter the rest 🙂

    • Sidekickgirl says:

      Mine is to take as many parts as possible (all of it, organs, eyes, skin, bone, whatever. Heck, if cadaver hair is a thing, shave my corpse!) then burn the rest and bury it. There are biodegradable urns with peat moss and such that you put a tree seed in, so that you grow a tree from your ashes. Perhaps I shall become a mighty oak! Or apples!

        Hadn’t heard about the Tree option. It sounds much better than the making the ashes into gems. See LifeGem. I don’t like the idea of future generations enshrining ‘family jewels.’

    Hmm you know thats not a bad idea and its an origin story we haven seen it a million times before powers via tissue donation of a metahuman closest thing i can think of is she hulk

    Sooo… what does ‘spine sense’ do exactly?

    I spent many years being a blood donor despite a dislike of needles. When asked why, I wo7ld ask how else an ordinary person like myself could be a hero?
