First of all, thanks to everyone who pointed out that there are lots of superheros who have non-tragic origins, so if you ever meet up with the real life version of Skeptical Guy, be sure to correct him, using sources and footnotes.
Otherwise, Superhero Girl has had a very bad day, which is about to get worse! Enter ... the plot. I try not to do "to be continued!" comics, but I've had to do two in a (so far) 41 comic run due to the restrictions of working in print. So it's totally not my fault, you guys! Anyway, it was time, I felt, for Superhero Girl to meet something that will test her superhero mettle. Something she can hopefully punch.
Also, did you know there is no spellcheck for hand-lettering? That is why "existential" is misspelled. Also totally not my fault. (Awesome local comic store Strange Adventures makes a cameo here. Way to make Superhero Girl feel bad, Strange Adventures!)
