Peregrine can run fast in his apartment cause he buys high-traction flooring.
I just missed these guys’ faces honestly. Also I’d had this idea for a while and wanted to make it before we got too far into he ‘day’ and also the comic I had planned for today was pretty complicated and it got to be Monday afternoon and I hadn’t penciled it yet. This one was simpler.
Coincidentally, the colorized Kong Tower #11: Required Secondary Powers Required, in which these two both first had lines, is the current voting incentive. Click the banner and see how much shittier (if less repetitious) my art was back then!
It happened so quickly!
In case it isn’t clear, I’ve been trying to make the tails on Arachne/Nancy’s speech bubbles look like spider web, at least when she’s in costume, or just pissed. I’m trying to individualize speech bubbles for most of my heroes, hence Max’s speech bubbles looking like atoms sometimes. But I can’t quite get her’s to come out right.
You can see her in full costume, in color, if you Vote for Kong Tower!
The astute reader might notice that Peregrine is running at extremely high speeds despite it being established that he has difficulty gaining traction. However, I would point out that in this case he has the opportunity to push off of a wall, earning most of his momentum without the issue of traction. How he’s making such sharp turns is an entirely different story, in that I really have no f**king idea. Hey, I got half way there, that’s better than most writers in this genre bother with.

Suddenly, shading! I wasn’t planning to start doing this until later, but I got tired of these looking as crappy as they did.
Remember that you can still see what she looks like in that big green spider costume by Voting for Kong Tower on Top Web Comics!
My original idea for this comic involved him calmly lamenting that he had to quit being a hero because his super-suit kept giving him cancer. Seriously. I really need to work on this whole “comedy” thing.

Striped sweater=criminal again. Really killing it with the symbolism lately.
Special thanks to my friend Kayla, for inspiring this comic. Well, I say inspired, she suggested I copy that comic that’s been floating around the Internet forever but I’m too lazy to find a source for about Spider-Man shooting spiders out of his wrists, I told her my original idea for this strip in which the joke was that Arachne’s only power was wall-crawling and she had no idea how to fight, so the cutaway panel was of her ripping a criminal’s face off, and she suggested I not do that. So here this is.
Vote for Kong Tower to see an exclusive full-body, colored image of the heroine above!
You can tell they’re bad guys because one is wearing a black-and-white striped sweater.
If this doesn’t seem to make much sense, it may be because I released two of these today and you didn’t check the first one. It might also be because this comic is largely nonsensical.
If you’ve been wondering desperately what the waitress’s story is, you must be very easily entertained. Also you’ll get some answers next week. If you’ve been wondering desperately where the hell this comic is going, you and me both, bucko.
Seriously, Vote for Kong Tower
I’m going to be really, really evil and provide a link to the TV Tropes page this comic references. See you suckers in like a month!
Note that I’ve released this page with the next one today. That’s right: two comics! On the same Tuesday! Like Christmas in July, baby!
And in case you missed the update on last week’s comic, remember to Vote for Kong Tower
