Alternate Universe Superhero Girl by Mike Holmes

SURPRISE! Today's Superhero Girl comic is written and drawn by my fellow Halgonian (that's a person who lives in Halifax; yes, I know it's a weird name) cartoonist Mike Holmes! Mike and I share the comic page in The Coast (right above the phone sex ads!), and we thought it'd be hilarious to switch comics for a day. So Mike drew this very excellent Superhero Girl, and I took over his comic, True Story. The concept of Mike's comic is that people send him emails about their weird real life adventures, and he turns those stories into beautiful art! Mike's been doing his comic a lot longer than I've been doing Superhero Girl, and you can buy the True Story book collection here (or on Amazon, whichever). Here's my True Story:


I think this comic gets super-meta if you imagine the drunk guy as a grown up, drunk Aang from Avatar: The Last Airbender. O_O Whoa, deep. Anyway, we will be back to your regularly scheduled Superhero Girl next week, but enjoy the special today!

  3. Is SGH flying in panel 2?

    Anyway, I love Mike Holmes's take on her. Great stuff on both sides!

    The Mike Holmes link doesn't go to his site; just to a jpeg file.

  7. Keep going with the Time Reverse Kid. He seems like he could start a Superhero Girl in Time story.

  8. @Gangerworld No, she clearly just jumped off the roof of that building, so she's still well under the 22 story mark I'm sure. ;) That's my take anyway.

    Also, drunk guy is making a face Aang made in an episode, so it's very easy to picture that as him just older. :)

  9. I love it when time travel is funny.

  10. Time travel is only fun when it doesn't mess up the entire story. Mortal Kombat 9, many DC and Marvel stories, and others have felt the sting of the time travel bug and ruined the whole story.
