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.

It's almost Christmas, raaaaaagh!

comic!

    Good old “need to know” … Asking questions of his handler will be of little use, as I doubt his handler even knows who he is working for (and may possibly be working for more than one person, both on legal and criminal enterprises). There will be multiple false fronts, dead ends, dead drops, and run-arounds. The left hand knoweth not what the right hand does.

    This ought to be good. Heroes are not accustomed to trying to catch smoke.

    Hopefully,a rival may or may not sneak up from behind and conk Isauro on the head and attempt to look inside the case..?!?

    Uh oh, looks like Isaru’s new boss might actually be competent.

    Or setting him up to take the heat for something.
    I guess it’ss waait and see.

    As an aside, dressing smart is no real guarantee of the current contractor’s competence in relation to previous villainious bosses, as a bunch of Bond movie villains may demonstrate.

    Yes, but in a world of costumed villains it implies an employer who would rather be low-key and business-oriented rather than resort to death ray theatricality. They might be ABLE to pull out a death ray, but they might think that if they have to pull out the death ray then they’ve already failed.

    Again i say – “not exactly, hello Bond villain”

    You know that feeling you get right as you stepped on something that went ‘squish?’ You don’t want to deal with this but you know what’s coming.

  • The passing Critic on December 15, 2017 at 8:44 AM

    This is feeling more and more like a job Isaru cant afford to screw up,Intentionally or not.in fact since its not the usual “Bwahahaha look at me!” Villainry hes probably walked into a situation where if things go south not only will he be going to jail but itll also be for something thats not covered by witless minion union laws.

  • Storel on December 17, 2017 at 4:25 AM

    Presumably the correct person will have a key to unlock the briefcase from Isauro’s wrist?

    Worse, it’s attached to his dominant hand, preventing use of the firearm which is his only allowable weapon on this deal.
