The world and its players are introduced. Altogether kind of a boring day for everyone.
If you look closely, just about every super character introduced so far is in this strip (along with a few who haven’t been). Don’t worry, they’ll all be explained in time…
In the meantime, you can support this comic by voting for Kong Tower, proving yourself worthy of receiving more of my comic and artistic genius. You can do it every day!
I’m really happy with how this one came out, artistically. Comedically… eh?
Vote for Kong Tower! Or Sergeant Omega up there will stare at you.
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.
Yeah, Invisible Girl was kinda useless until they came up with that whole forcefield thing.
Hope you’re all enjoying the movie that comes out today! [EDIT] You did not.
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.
