Superhero Girl 21


When I think about someone being a superhero, most of the time it seems like a very thankless job. You see society at its worst, and if you're doing your job correctly, most of the time people don't see the feats you perform to keep them safe. I think you'd have to be really selfless to be a superhero; you essentially are in a helping profession, serving your community, and those are the people who get dumped on a lot. But sometimes someone notices what a good job you've done, and that keeps you going.

Website stuff: so I've fixed up the site a bit to hopefully make it a little nicer for viewing comics. Thanks for all the feedback, and I'll try and get around to making things a little tidier in the coming weeks. At least the site now feels like a somewhat proper webcomic site, which makes me happy. :)

Also, thanks to everyone who's purchased an original strip lately. For some reason I seem to have lost a couple of strips in the teens (16, 17 and 14), so I can't sell those, and of course a bunch of people have asked about buying those particular strips. Erk. And I've decided to keep this particular strip for myself. But some of the others are still kicking around if someone wants to give them a good home.

  1. Awww... I don't know what's cuter. The kitty, or a wide-eyed Superhero Girl. That second-to-last panel is so adorable. ^^;;

  2. I love how you show her humanness and vulnerabilities. Who could imagine Batman limping home after a fight with the Joker?

  10. For a long time I had a vagrant tomcat that sometimes got into my house trough an open window and crawled into bed while I was sleeping.
    It was worth the fleas :_)

  13. Ben >> hah! But ... the cat is so adorable! It can't be evil! (Or can it??)

    Thanks for all the compliments about the layout, guys! (and the nice comments about the strip.) Hoping to make some final tweaks to it eventually, after digging out from under my pile of work. But at least this design actually LOOKS like a webcomic site.
