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.

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?

  • Kristin on January 29, 2015 at 4:43 AM

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

  • Sidekickgirl on January 29, 2015 at 6:27 PM

    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!

  • Twitch on January 30, 2015 at 3:48 PM

    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?

  • Sidekickgirl on April 9, 2015 at 2:17 AM

    It’s my very special telepathy.

  • Genericname5A on February 8, 2016 at 8:54 AM

    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?
