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.

Now THAT'S a nun

BAM. We’ve been looking forward to this page.

    Bam. She does hit hard. Also sneaky.

    It a must have. All cultures have monsters that hate salt. Effects vary but throwing it in the face or building a circle is supernatural defense 101.

    There is never enough salt.

    What’s that on her back?

  • the leaking pen on August 13, 2014 at 12:51 PM

    Looks like its her interrogator. For when she needs to axe a vampire a question while killing them.

    Bah-dum-tum-TISH!

    That thing on her back is called a bardiche. It’s a halberd.

    YAY! a fully armored nun! I was hoping you ladies would can this route!
    In combat, habits aren’t good for anything but fanservice – which really doesn’t kill the monster faster. Nice to see a nun who knows that the ‘Armor of Christ’ is best complemented by plate-metal.

    Can we see the rest of the inscription on the door?
    I’ve not opened my text books in 5 years but I think it says. “The scared cross shall be my light. The dragon (Satan) shall not be my leader.”
    The third sentence starts with a form of “Farewell” and the word ‘never’ is after the speech bubble.

    Vade retro satana.
    Nunquam suade mihi vana.
    Sunt mala quae libas.
    Ipse venena bibas.

    At first I thought her pant legs were her skin and thought “That’s not very nun-like”.

    If you’ve felt any waves of palpable rage from the Detroit area recently, it may well have been from us looking at pictures of other comic book nuns, whose costumes have nothing nun-like about them. It’s bad enough that the average superheroine is dressed in dental floss, but when you have a character who has taken vows of modesty and chastity and then draw them half naked…rage. So much of it.

    The other possible source of the rage would be the flooding.

  • Laura on August 14, 2014 at 6:24 PM

    It makes me SO mad. EVERY TIME.

  • Graham on August 14, 2014 at 12:33 PM

    If anyone is curious about the text on the door…

    I love the nun’s outfit. Now, forgive me, but when I first looked at it, I though, “*sigh* Typical superhero not-very-nunly nun.” Then I realized that her arms and legs were in BROWN armor, not that she was showing a lot of skin. Forgive me?

    By the way, I like the touch of the red band holding back her habit at the small of her back. Does she remove that red band and look like a more typical nun? Or am I just thinking too much?

  • Laura on August 19, 2014 at 2:12 PM

    She certainly does remove it when not embattled. The equivalent

    to tying ones hair back.

  • Cherub Laws on August 17, 2014 at 4:31 AM

    Nice Axe.

  • Scuffles on August 17, 2014 at 9:23 AM

    Hitting things very hard is a pretty handy talent. For Vampire hunters anyway.

  • Drmercurious on August 18, 2014 at 2:39 PM

    “Yea, though I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil…because I’m the toughest thing in that valley.” *Pause* What? oh COME ON a nun isn’t going to use the full actual line, there’s vows to consider! Anyways, FINALLY a battle nun WORTHY of respect!
