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.

Mark is really nice for letting Isauro borrow the parish car for his crimes.

Boom, new arc!

    Oooh, a villain who isn’t wearing spandex. Those are the most dangerous ones.

    One in a 3 piece suit no less! That’s even worse.

    Mostly because their villainy is the completely legal and morally bankrupt sort. And the parts that aren’t? Well… just don’t get caught.

    Wich is why literally all but 3 or 4 of batmans villians wear suits (Bane, Harley, Ivy, Scarecrow)

    Don’t forget Freeze. Mr. Freeze also does not wear a suit (at least not that kind). For that matter, several others I could think of over the years haven’t worn suits (although they might be considered short-term, rather than long-term opponents).

    I do believe this is our first time learning Isauro’s surname.

  • Sidekickgirl on December 10, 2017 at 2:40 PM

    Isauro’s last name has been on the cast page since he was first added, but the first time that it is seen in the comic itself is May 18, 2009 in the wanted poster.

    Oh boy…Ok Isauros in trouble here,This looks like hes been pulled into a big league game and given his poor minion track record(dispite being blatantly competent) and having recently narked of the dragon lady has probably been promoted to the post of expendable asset.

    Oh my lord. His face. LOOK AT HIS FACE! IT’S THE GLASSES! THE GLASSES FROM HEROCON!

    On the other hand, though, this guy looks nothing like their previous wearer. Well, unless his hairdo features both a shaved top AND a messy ponytail out the back (which is not impossible, but is unlikely considering he’s the type to wear a three piece suit.)

    There are only two possibilities: either this guy is the master of disguise type who frequently changes his look, or….

    The glasses really are alive and he’s simply their next host.

    I kinda hope it’s number 2.

    Familiar with The Prisoner TV series?

  • Random Spectator on December 13, 2017 at 7:01 PM

    Am I the only one who thinks that this guy ISN’T Isaurio’s new villain boss, but is instead a high ranked henchman for said boss?

    Everyone seems to assume that he’s the boss, but his word choice and body language are not particularly nefarious, arrogant or otherwise bossy. My money is on him being the one to explain what the boss wants done, the leaving.

    Wearing a three piece suit with a belt: the sign of true villainy.
