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.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, heroes WOULD be essential, but work with us here.

Crazy times we’re living in, huh?

We’re gonna do a little contest, just for funsies. Send us a photo of you being a hero, whether by staying at home, being an essential worker, working in healthcare, whatever. Email it to by next Wednesday, April 29. We’ll pick the one we like the best (probably the funniest) and draw it, and post it.

That’s it, nothing fancy. Next arc starts next week and we’ll slot the contest winner in as a little bonus once it’s finished.

Let’s try to keep the comments encouraging this week, mmk?

    Hey can you put Chris in a girl’s outfit and the sidekick girls should give him a makeover and hairdo for a mission or just for fun.

    Can you please atleast make one picture and mail it to me.If you don’t want to make a whole plotline and publish.

    I’d highly appreciate your time if you do this favor for me.

    hey, did you know that you can exchange money for goods and services?

    in all honesty though, don’t ask artists to do work for free, especially in a pandemic where everyone is struggling. unless you were planning to pay them, in which case my bad. 🙂

    I would like to see that picture as well. I am transwomen who is in the closet for various reasons until I can move out of state and I think it would be cute to see him in a dress and getting dolled up.

    My only question is. ……. would he be groaning and bearing the women in the group having fun giving him a makeover, or would he be grinning sheepishly because he can’t quite bring himself to admit that he is enjoying getting to be one of the girls for a night. Aaahhhh ….. memories. …. I am clean shaven, but otherwise I am close to his body type so that cartoon panel idea brings happy thoughts to my mind. 🙂

    Yeah, DON’T watch Tiger King. It’s a hack piece that outright lies about the wonderful work actually done at Big Cat Rescue.
