Mondays and Fridays

Hey, that guy again!  He's only the main character of the strip, about time we got back to him.  (I was debating whether he should wear a tie ... )

Thanks to David Reddick for pointing me toward the Indy Webcomics Group, a group that ... well, they like webcomics and they're in Indianapolis.  I found out about them just in time for their monthly meeting, and I had a great evening with a fun bunch of artists and writers.  More on them as I get to know them.

Work goes well so far.  A few weeks ago, I was waiting for recruiters to call me, now I can't get them to stop.  Guys, I have a job now, OK?

Daylight Savings Time is over ... help, I fell back and I can't wake up!

The resemblance is so uncanny.

Mr. Mighty doesn't have headlights; neither does Lightning McQueen.

Mr. Mighty has less than nine wheels; so does Lightning.

Mr. Mighty can't breathe chlorine...

Mr. Mighty doesn't own a giraffe...

Mr. Mighty can't play a theremin...

Mr. Mighty has no sense of smission...

Mr. Mighty is not colored turoquoise...

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

What makes you think Mr. Mighty can't play the theremin??

Avilyn (avilyn) says:

Happy Thanksgiving, Ed! Thanks for the comic (and the filks at Skin Horse & Narbonic). :-)

Mary Potts (queenofcapes) says:

Hee!  Aw, poor Mr. Mighty.  That Poncho totally makes the panel, btw, and possibly the whole strip. XD

Mary Potts (queenofcapes) says:

Well, I'm both, and I laughed out loud when I saw this. XD

Sam Daniel (samhdaniel) says:

If you ever watch movies on TCM, they often show the original as part of the lead-in to the next movie....

chic geek (onechicgeek) says:

It was also briefy homaged (is that a word?) in a tiny toons cartoon!

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Nighthawks!
Chris Bacon (necroskippy) says:

Helps if you a Tom Waits fan too.

Mary Potts (queenofcapes) says:

"There aren't any gems at the art museum!"  Hee!  Clever. XD

Wayne (wayne) says:

Ed, came across a blog that you might enjoy.  Written by two lawyers, they explore legal concepts as applied to a superhero multiverse.

John Campbell (jcampbel) says:

Hopper's diner also appeared in one of the old Tick comics.

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Verrrrry tricky, Mr. Mighty.
E.T. the Eccentric Type (et_the_eccentric_type) says:

So, yeah, stay off the rooftops unless you're invulnerable.

Chris Bacon (necroskippy) says:

@jcampbell:  I think the cartoon did too.

Mary Potts (queenofcapes) says:

Awesome! XD  Gotta love that Mr. Mighty. ^_^

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: He's been Hornswoggled!
David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

And this is why you don't want to trade *all* your INT&WIZ for STR&CON....

Funny, MrM *looks* like a dumb ol' tank himself.... but if you believe that, you're in trouble!

 

Chris Bacon (necroskippy) says:

So are all villains in this world of the Punchclock variety or are there rogues?

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Most villains (at least in the minor leagues) play by the rules.  Of course, there is the occasional rogue ... one of whom will show up one of these days, I promise.  (Stupid having to work for a living taking up all my drawing time ...)

Mary Potts (queenofcapes) says:

Well, if you give up sleep, then you'll have time to work *and* draw comics! =D  Maybe you can do what Batman (probably) does and pay someone to sleep for you.

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Hooray! Merry Holidaymas!
chic geek (onechicgeek) says:

Okay, I like the picture on the wall of Mister Mighty and his former team-well, I'm assuming that's who they are. Nice!

 

chic geek (onechicgeek) says:

Merry Christmas!

Avilyn (avilyn) says:

Merry Christmas!

Sam Daniel (samhdaniel) says:

I don't know where you find the time to do it all, Ed, but we all appreciate your work. Merry Christmas!

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Yay!  Merry ho ho ho Ed and family!

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Merry Christmas!
Carrie Whitaker (auroraket) says:

Glad to hear your holiday went well. :) Here's hoping things stay going well :)

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says: Hmm.. It's just occured to me... MM wears his costume around the house? Even when he's not about to go out?
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

@David: Yes, he's always in costume.  I could come up with some in-universe reason for it, but really, I just like the idea of MM hanging around the house in costume.  Look for him cutting the lawn one of these days ...

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Happy New Yeeeeear!
E.T. the Eccentric Type (et_the_eccentric_type) says:

On this day, I, Marion Mighty, swear that you, Herbert A. Wirth, will not have died in vain!

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Gotta love those special conductive hero gloves.  Seriously, can't he make those things out of something insulative?  This seems to happen all too often.

John Campbell (jcampbel) says:

I had something very like this happen to me once - though I was putting up sheetrock, not taking down plaster and lath. A wire dangling from a disconnected overhead light fixture brushed my temple and grounded out through the power screwdriver in my hand. The right half of my world went white for a few seconds. Was the last time I took my boss's word for it when he said that he'd turned off the breaker...

E.T. the Eccentric Type (et_the_eccentric_type) says:

Yeah, and it, like most superhero outfits, is form-fitting and practically skintight, implying, what, latex?

Nah, latex doesn't do that. Come to think of it, nothing does that. Weird.

E.T. the Eccentric Type (et_the_eccentric_type) says:

At least you spelled "espresso" correctly, even if that did ruin the joke.

There's no X there, people! grr...

Mad Andy (andrew_c) says: Nah, it doesn't ruin the joke (although I prefer a latte). Hope your back and knees are better. Not pleasant when they seize up.
David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

I like how MM's eyes light up at his "discovery"!  :-)

Gwen, ET:  The primary design constraint for a super's costume really needs to be "withstands use of the wearer's own powers".  Durability against incidental hazards (say, your teammates' powers) is a nice bonus.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

Good luck with your back and knees -- I'm currently nursing a shoulder that's not *quite* on strike, yet.  (Mild rotator-cuff injury.)

Mullet-dude seems to startle easily!  :-) 

Adam (10-0-0-1) says: superhero meets the noncomic book problems, talk about a sad realization.
gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

"It's not for lack of wanting, my friend...but those things aren't for the hero in ME to do.  Those things are for the hero in YOU to do."

Some things can't be done by the superhero.  They have to be done by the mortal hero.

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Power has already been off here once in Philly suburbs.  Temperature is going  up outside, so it isn't as bad as it was, thank goodness, but it's still a mess.

chic geek (onechicgeek) says:

Keep warm and safe, Ed. And the rest of you, too.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

Best of luck....

About this strip... well, low-end criminals tend to be low-end mentalities.  Especially since MM has (moderate) super-senses!

E.T. the Eccentric Type (et_the_eccentric_type) says:

I hope Blades is a villain. That would be awesome.

I'm trying to picture what someone named Blades would be like as a supervillain. He probably uses blades.

Wayne (wayne) says:

Two of my fav Python sketches involve not noticing the obvious or secret identities: Bicycle Repairman and also An Average Day in the Life of a Stock Broker.

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

"Registered"

Though "Brand" is probably acceptable.  As in ♫"I am stuck on Band-aid® (BRAND) cuz I can't sing it this jingle without saying BRAND anymore.."♫

Were you going to do me a picture?


Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

@Gwen: I done did you a drawin', darlin'!  Sat on the couch and drew while my sister and I watched "Secretariat" (we got a free movie-on-demand coupon from the cable company).

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

And it's a lovely drawin' indeed!  It is up on the site even as I type, and thank you so very much...it couldn't have come at a better time.

Mary Potts (queenofcapes) says:

To the tune of I Like Chinese:

 

These crooks today seem absolutely crackers.

With guns and pointed sticks they're set to rob.

These fools have their fingers on the trigger.

It's depressing, but there's one perk to this job...

I like Squeeze-Freeze (r)

I like Squeeze-Freeze

They

taste like some kind of berries,

Yet they cause discomfort until somebody pees.

Tiff Hudson (tiff_hudson) says:

We have a saying - "He's not the sharpest spoon in the drawer."

Adam (10-0-0-1) says: at least he was smart enough to realize Mr. M is after blades more than him and his fellow darwin award candidates here.
Tiff Hudson (tiff_hudson) says:

Snowblowers are our friends.

Wayne (wayne) says:

We've been fortunate this year with snow, though it did hit -17f early this month.  Last year I was using the snow blower a couple of times a week, this year I haven't used it at all.  I've shoveled the porch off a couple of times, and that's been about it.

Adam (10-0-0-1) says: boo snow shoveling, that is a most unfun thing. Also Mr M might be a laid back guy normally but he sure is intimidating when he wants to be.
Brian Bogue (badbear) says:

sounds like a good story arc to me

Wayne (wayne) says:

I like Mr. M giving him a second chance, but I don't think the act of dropping a gun in a bucket of water will get rid of the fingerprints unless it had a high concentration of ammonia or bleach.  I recently read an article where they have a technique for lifting fingerprints off of clothing with fair reliability.

E.T. the Eccentric Type (et_the_eccentric_type) says:

Aren't fingerprints mainly caused by human oils in certain patterns? Soap is good for breaking down things like that, so if it's a janitor's bucket, then it probably would work.

Jackie Goebel (oddmother) says:

Ed- Love your cartoons. We too are having a taxing day. Both boys worked on a 1099 basis also. It stinks...Jackie

Wayne (wayne) says:

I went from full-time employee to part-time contracting/tele-commuting in '09 due to a pretty radical medical problem, fortunately I kept my employee status so they continued withholding taxes, otherwise I'd have to do the withholding myself.  Still, we did get stung this year also.

E.T. the Eccentric Type (et_the_eccentric_type) says:

This poses an interesting question.

Namely, where do supers get their hoppin' duds?

Seein' as Mr. Mighty is going to need some kind of replacement or something.

(Can he sew?)

Brian Bogue (badbear) says:

As he seems not to own any other clothes, except maybe a trench coat and hat, (for disguise perposes only) I am sure he has a whole closet full of them.  And seeing as his world is full of super heros and villians I am sure there are boat loads of stores that sell outfits for all their super power needs

Adam (10-0-0-1) says: It is clearly made by a short overbearing fashion designer with a German-Japanese accent.
Wayne (wayne) says:

I am really looking forward to the further adventures of Blade, loved the 'for a guy called Blade he sure likes bullets!'  You might even say that my pulse will be quicknin' with each drop of strychnine.

Amber Thompson (msfrost) says:

How often do we se Mr Mighty, without his cowl?

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Not very often ... this is the first time that wasn't a flashback.

Amber Thompson (msfrost) says:

I wondered, because I had never seen it before.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

Musta taken a lot of bullets to blast his clothes off!

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

Hmm.  Does MM still have his hair, or has it all been rubbed off from wearing that cowl all the time?

Matthew Mayabb (sephikus) says:

Well he is a superhero so the likelihood of being called out on some urgent business at a moments notice means wearing his uniform even when not expecting to leave for work is much more logical than superman's phone booth quick change plan.
