Mondays and Fridays

Work has been busy this week, and there's a lot to do at home this weekend, so here's a teaser for the start of this chapter.  Don't know if I can get it finished Saturday, but I will do my level best to get next Wednesday's update on schedule.

I donated blood today, and chatted briefly with the technician ... she mentioned she was into steampunk and comics, so of course I told her about Girl Genius ... and Skin Horse, while I was at it ... and obviously, my own little gem here.  Miss, I didn't get your name, but if you've checked us out, please register and say "hi" in the comments!

Come to think of it, she's an artist too.  She draws blood.  *rimshot*

OK, it's time for:

(Tune: "The House of the Rising Sun", traditional)

There is a house in old Fort Wayne
They call it "Writhing Pun"
And it's been the ruin of many a good word
And "draws", egad, is one.

Ed's mother was a hamster
Aboard the flying isle.
His dad, of elderberries smelt,
While making puns so vile.

There's but one thing a punster needs:
A sense of humor dry,
And the only time he'll be satisfied
Is when you groan and cry.

Oh, mothers tell your children
Not to do what I have done:
Burn their ears on wordplay risible
From the House of the Writhing Pun.

Well, I've half a mind to travel
(The other half has fled)
And go on out to old Fort Wayne
To pun-ish bad boy Ed.

... There is a house in old Fort Wayne
They call it "Writhing Pun"
And it's been the ruin of many a good word,
The home of Ged-e-on.

Chic Geek (chic_geek) says:

*applauds*

Chic Geek (chic_geek) says:

And remember folks, vote early and often! It's the least we can do for Ed.

Hey Ed, do you think you'll ever do a print collection of Everyday Heroes?

Wayne (wayne) says:

One of my favorite superhero groups that I ever played in in all the years my friends and I played Champions were The Greatest Firefighters In All The World And Canada.  Amazing how useful a bunch of medium power level heroes can be for forest fire fighting and disaster rescue.

I should do a French translation some day.

Tetra Valent (4_valent) says:

Wayne:  But was your footwork as good as that shown above in Panel 3?

I'm wondering if it's just coincidence that Senor C has a mustache very similar to Ed's.

David Johnston (davidjohnston) says:

El Hombre Abeja?

Chic Geek (chic_geek) says:

Senor C? Does he have a sister named Sue? Who sews?

Tetra Valent (4_valent) says:

@Chic: Senor C's sister Sue sells seashells by the seashore in the Seychelles, see?

I'd call him "El Cucaracho", but we all know that Ed has a very punny name in mind.

Tetra Valent (4_valent) says:

Kitchen rehab?  Did your daughter burn a hole in the counter with her eyes again?

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

No, my wife burned a hole in the bank account with the debit card.

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

That's why I never use my debit card.  Haven't in years. The CREDIT card...well, yeah, but I pay it off usually in a month. Groceries are my largest expense, I get them online and have them delivered. Can't do the up-and-down the aisles and hauling bags thing anymore.

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Oh come on. He's La Cucaracha, of course.

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Or would he be the Cicada? With that C on his chest, and orthoptera, I'd think that might be more correct...or perhaps "La Chicharra"?

Edwin Quantrall (reynard) says:

If he's Orthoptera, then the "C" most likely stands for "Cricket".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orthoptera

Tetra Valent (4_valent) says:

@gwen: Well, if he's "La" anything, we're in for some Skin-Horse-style gender bending.  Cicadas aren't Orthoptera but Crickets are.  Cicadas are actually Hemiptera - see the last panel above!

There is a striking resemblance to "El Chapulin Colorado" - what a coincidence!  That ought to provide a clue as to Ed's name for him, but I'm too dense at the moment to guess it.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

@Tetra: Very clever ... I did not count on your astuteness!

Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says:

CAMMMM-M-m-bio!  *cracks up laughing*  Clever use of the KA-sound-effect, Ed, and G-Nat's obvious surprise is wonderful. 

As for our international guest star, I'm going with Tetra's impression (albeit with no new guesses of my own, and no time to research before work). That C looks like a double-C on yesterday's art, similar to Mighty's double-M. 

Pastangum "Yes, on Sunday. Why do you ask?" Felinix

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

*shrug*  That's what happens when someone with entomophobia tries to classify an insect.  (No, that's not a fear of Ents.)

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chapulines -- it's Mexican for grasshopper.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

Oh, and it seems El Chapulin Colorado is an existing comedic superhero -- are we going over to slapstick for a while?

Tetra Valent (4_valent) says:

"... if I can't even update on time, how am I supposed to put a book together?"

Ask Phil and Kaja.  They've repeatedly done the latter without always doing the former.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

At least he didn't say anything about... her NOSE!

Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says: Cambio-otra-vez!  Dunnitagin, Ed! :D   The bit about the accent, I figured, was good-natured ribbing between the 'new guy' to the patrol who eventually trounced his grammatical woes, and the second-language-is-second-nature Mexicano.  Anyone who's years out of practice, but can still use past perfect tense (correctly) as a reflex... you get the point.Pastangum "How's it been goin' for you?" Felinix
David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

Hey, shouldn't MM's super-vision be able to resolve Carlos' reduced form?  Even we readers can still see his costume colors.  I guess the panel of their dinner was actually out-of-sequence, or MM would have been expecting him.

Tetra Valent (4_valent) says:

All his movements are coldly calculated!

The beets go on....

Wayne (wayne) says:

My wife made a very good leek soup, but she didn't know how insidiously they hide dirt.  Watched a Good Eats last night that shows how to clean them, so our next attempt should be a lot better.

The Auld Grump (theauldgrump) says:

37 pounds of beets?

 

Sounds like she wants to make and can some borscht or other beet soup. :) There are some very good ones, with my favorite being beet soup with ginger.

Chic Geek (chic_geek) says:

Maybe she's read Tom Robbin's Jitterbug Perfume, and is looking for the secret to eternal life for you both?

Tetra Valent (4_valent) says:

"Cuchillas" ... definitely someone making many cutting remarks.

I went back to look at that prior epsiode, which makes me wonder how many costumes Mr. Mighty goes through in a year.  He must have quite a business expense deduction on his taxes.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

"Your disguises have always been terrible" says the guy with antennae sticking out of his hat.  At least Carlos found a trenchcoat to mostly-cover his equally-bright-red costume. 

John Campbell (jcampbel) says:

Looks like me except blond, really.

Tetra Valent (4_valent) says:

The most suspicious-looking guy is the one in the fake glasses.  How are those things staying on?

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

@Tetra: I thought about providing an explanation, like will power that holds Green Lantern's mask ... but then I figured, Rule of Funny is reason enough.

Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says: Hey, Barney's back! (I named this guy Barney in my head.) Good to see ya dude! What's up? er, everything okay? uh... I'm not gonna hit you? @mental_mouse: I'd say Carlos' disguise is better for this situation; Mighty chose close-range identity-concealment rather than long-range observation concealment. Then again, last time Mighty was wearing hat and trench coat... and no pants... over his bright red Exspando's (or whatever the lawyer-safe brand name is). And somehow Mitch thought nothing of it. I dunno, Rule of Funny is about the only thing that makes sense. And you're dead right there, Mighty. I work with people on the phone, and *frequently* I have to interrupt them in order to get back on track with the topic they called about. It's good that Carlos is an old buddy who understands that need. Pastangum "my disguise is a cat. Meow!" Felinix (P.S. If Ed happens to include an alley cat, while Our Hero is in the alley, I'm claiming it as my cameo. :3 )
Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says:

Also, I have no idea why my work computer eats linefeeds. I assume it only happens to me 'cause nobody else has complained about it.  Sorry!  It's probably the same misbehavior that sometimes gives me a 'no comment submitted' error.

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

I guess milk gives her...

*puts on shades*

THE RUNS.

(yyeeeeeaaaaaahhhh)

Sam Schmern (the_occupant) says:

Mister Mighty is very Ernest about this.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Well, Sam, if he knows the importance of being Ernest, does that mean he has a Wilde side?

Chic Geek (chic_geek) says:

Happy  Birthday, Ed!!

The Auld Grump (theauldgrump) says:

Hippo birdy!

The Auld Grump

Tetra Valent (4_valent) says:

Happy Birthweek, Ed!

Sam Schmern (the_occupant) says:

And a very Happy Birthday to you!

Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says:

Happy Wirthday, Bed!

Wayne (wayne) says:

Awesome!  Laser bullet drive-by!

There's an actually somewhat funny B-movie called The Pope Must Diet, the last word originally didn't have a T, but someone objected for some reason.  In it, the amazing Herbert Lom, is supposed to become Pope but an overweight Italian priest Clouseau becomes Pope by mistake.  In it, they have frequent TV ads for Chocolate Pasta.

Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says:

... :D

(I haven't been able to stop grinning since Wednesday. Cheshire? Canary-eating? Take your pick, while I pick my teeth.)

Pastangum "whold?" Felinix

John Campbell (jcampbel) says:

I thought this was a family comic. Should you be saying "mukluk" here?

Tetra Valent (4_valent) says:

Congratulations!  You're now an acronym.

Gosh, wherever did you get Vern's line?  I still have no idea what it means.

Wayne (wayne) says:

The best use of the word mukluk is from a comedy routine called Bulbous Bouffant from a Canadian comedy troop called Radio Free Vestibule.  I think they've changed their name since, but I don't know the new one.

Gazebo!

The Auld Grump (theauldgrump) says:

Pork, pork, pork, MUKLUK! (Skin Horse reference, but Mr. Gedeon is NEVER seen around those parts, now is he?... :P )

Sam Schmern (the_occupant) says:

Superman couldn't fly at first. It was because  the people who made the animated cartoon (the one by the peopel who made Popeye cartoon) found it easier to draw him flying than jumping everywhere that he got the power of actual flight.

Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says:

@jcampbel: "<u>mukluk</u>" is a euphemism, it's clean enough to substitute for offensive words like %*@#! or #@&&$ or <b>bus</b>.

Pastangum "Macadamia!" Felinix

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Ed, you are a truly evil man. I can't stop chuckling.

It may be the drugs. Kidney stones will do that.

Sam Daniel (samhdaniel) says:

Which finger is that she's holding up?

Edwin Quantrall (reynard) says:

Bush Stadum still exists, but there's apparently a plan to turn it into a housing development with condos and a park.

Tetra Valent (4_valent) says:

Edwin:  They're already renting.  The shell of the stadium, but only that, remains.  Google "stadium lofts".

Ed:  Don't look, especially at Google maps images!

The new schedule is fine.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

@Sam:  That is her index finger.  Every mother knows the Power of the Pointer.

The Auld Grump (theauldgrump) says:

And half way up a guest star opens a window and makes witty quips for a quck cameo.

 

The Auld Grump

Sean Duggan (duggansc) says: So why not jump? They're both super-leapers of one sort or another as I remember it.
gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Rip Torn sticks his head out of a window and tosses glitter...

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

@Sean: Because this is funner, that's why not.

Edwin Quantrall (reynard) says:

Sorry to be "That Guy", but what is that "old electrical wire" made of that it can support their weight after being bent? I might be more inclined to suspend disbelief if it were rebar. (Reinforced steel bars for pre-stressed concrete.)

Sean Duggan (duggansc) says: @Edwin: I think the cord is made from the electrical wire. The grappling hook is made from the fire escape.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Sean is correct, the hook is made out of the metal from the fire escape.  Sorry if I didn't make that more clear.  It's kinda like "Junkyard Wars", where the stuff they need just happens to be lying around ...

Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says:

@duggansc, a more in-scene explanation could be that they want to break in without making much noise.  The closer they get without anyone inside knowing about 'em, the better chance of catching their targets without excessive clothing damage.

Pastangum "no battle plan survives first contact with the enemy" Felinix

The Auld Grump (theauldgrump) says:

The real secret: They aren't climbing up anything, that is the floor of a soundstage painted to look like a building.... :P

The Auld Grump - Same Bat-time, same Bat-channel!

Edwin Quantrall (reynard) says:

@ Sean & Ed: Okay, I'll accept that. (P.S. <a href="http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MacGyvering">There's a Trope for that</a>...)

Artie Snell (c-squared) says:

Dunno about you, but I cannot get the "Frito Bandito" song out of my head.  I made the words fit.  (It actually does)

Artie Snell (c-squared) says:

Just looked up "Cielito Lindo" on Wikipedia and, yup, that's what it is.

Wayne (wayne) says:

Carlos might be in trouble against Rat Man's henchmen!

Yeah, bunch of freakin' idiots.  We were going to have a family reunion for my aunt's 90th birthday at White Sands, ain't happenin'.  At least my wife's job as an astronomer is funded through universities, not directly from the gov't.

Chic Geek (chic_geek) says:

Way back when, our spanish teacher wrote to Frito-Lay and got permission for thespanish club to use the Frito Bandito as our mascot. I wish I still had my club shirt!

John Campbell (jcampbel) says:

You're filking your own comic now?

Wayne (wayne) says:

That's one thing that I like about living in Southern New Mexico, we can get the Mexican version of American sodas.

Tetra Valent (4_valent) says:

I wonder if this caper was pulled off by the same people who stole all that Canadian maple syrup?

The real question is, is this formulation old enough to actually have cocaine in it?  Dr. Pemberton's headache remedy!

Ed: remember when playing in the mud was fun?

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

Cue fight scene among the stacks of cases of glass bottles....

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Cane sugar is also used in Passover Coke, because it's Kosher if made with sugar, but not if it's made with high fructose corn syrup.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

Gwen:  Correction, the corn syrup only keeps it from being Kosher for Passover (special rules for the holiday).

Tetra Valent (4_valent) says:

He's WAY overdue for his manicure.  It's hard to see how he could fire a gun (you know, being "fond of bullets" and all).

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

@Tetra:  That's what henchmen are for.

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

I understand expensive.  This summer has been expensive. TWO bouts of kidney stones and eye surgery for incipient glaucoma SINCE JUNE gets a bit pricey.

Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says:

Pretty awesome that both the victims called out to S.A.V.E.U.S.! That's good product placement. O'course, the heroes being who they are (and having just been shot at by said victims) might not be planning to let 'em just scarper.

Also love the way you poke fun at superhero tropes! I would've expected MM to know better than what Carlos is doing, but [additional spoilery comment redacted - vote TWC and you'll figure it out]

On a minor note, I took a rest from commenting for the past couple of weeks as the tempo of my job crescendoed. So (la ti do!) I feel guilty for not posting Ed The Filkmaster's Spanish filk a few days ago struck a chord. Beautiful, natural-sounding and in-context lyrics, with spot-on grammar. You're bilingual, right Ed?

Pastangum "Ay ay ay ay, abre la puerta..." Felinix

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: He's a-door-able.
Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says:

Genre savvy characters can be just as much fun to write as the genre-blind.  All we need now, in a future storyline, is the excessively complex plan described in detail beforehand. Which goes almost completely AS planned, thereby stunning the planners. ... or was that the museum heist?

I have to admit, I'm curious who D/M is (and why does she remind me of Dolly-Bird?), but I trust the upcoming comics to reveal as needed.  

Pastangum "Hmm... does she have an explosive temper?" Felinix

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

@Pastangum:  It's the curly blonde hair.  And as for guessing her name, I think you're bang on target.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

Another reason to wear gloves:  Dealing with yucky situations.

Wayne (wayne) says:

I think it was PDQ Bach's On The Air album that had the line: "And now the weather report: due to an on-going strike at the National Weather Service, there will be no weather today."

Been a long time since I heard that.  Here, no snow yet.  It's occasionally getting in to the 20s overnight, but no moisture so no snow.

Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says:

Thanks to guessing her name early, I had time to put together what I hope is a fitting tribute to the Filkmaster.

(TUNE: "I've Been Working on the Railroad", classic folk song)

I've been henchin' for the boss-man,

'til the heroes' raid!

I've been henchin' for the boss-man,

the villain known as Blades!

Saw him get his hands tied real quick,

Thinkin' bout switching sides.

I'll drop down a little boomstick,

And everybody hides!

[CHORUS:]

Dinah Might don't throw,

Dinah Might don't throw,

Dinah don't you throw your boomstick there!

Dynamite don't blow,

Dynamite don't blow

Dynamite don't blow this lair!

Pastangum "wow, filking is hard work!" Felinix

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Pastangum:  Thank you!  Very much appreciated!

Chic Geek (chic_geek) says:

Dinah Might's real name doesn't make the initials J.J.,does it?

Joshua Deming (longshotlink) says:

Shouldn't his costume still be ripped, Our is that part of the joke and I'm just dense? 

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Oh, foggy airspace.  You're right, Joshua. Fixed now. 

Tetra Valent (4_valent) says:

Dinah Might, nay, certainly knows how to liven up a party.  Do I want to know where she was carrying that stick of dynamite?  Perhaps Dynamite Space is right next to Hammer Space?

Joshua Deming (longshotlink) says:

Since I don't see Blades, I'm assuming he's split. Just like she has.

Tetra Valent (4_valent) says:

Mister Mighty is holding up rather well.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

And I assume Dinah got away...  I like the coke bottle erupting in the corner of the last panel.

Wayne (wayne) says:

Reconnecting with old friends is always awesome.  Last year I got together with a friend when I was in DC whom I hadn't seen in over 30 years.  Found him via LinkedIn.

I should require all my friends to have distinctive names.  Since you're in Indianna, you don't know any Andy Pickett's who are in their early 50's, do you?

Edwin Quantrall (reynard) says:

I remember seeing a P&L interior house being re-modeled sometime in the late 1960s or early 1970s. (I think that it was built sometime in the early 1900s. An architect friend of my mom's was doing the re-design work.) Yeah, it was quite the mess. I was most fascinated by all the plumbing and wiring (with cloth insulation!) that was visible. I owned a camera at the time (a clunky old instamatic that I'd bought for $1 at a flea market/auction), but I didn't have any film or flash cubes that day so I couldn't get pictures.

Tetra Valent (4_valent) says:

Did the Colts screw up the change from Daylight Savings Time or do they just find it more sporting to take the first quarter off?  I'm sure this season would be very boring for you if they played well all game.

I'm wondering who would still be shooting at Vern.

Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says: Before readers start calling "H4X!!!!1!1", I think I know how a 'normal' might've outrun Dot.  After her word with Vern, Dot went to check on MM, while Vern went straight for safety. Shorter trip.Also? Dyna Might and Blades both disappeared in the chaos. We don't know how many other henches Blades may have, and neither does Vern. _I_ wouldn't want to be on the streets right after getting a hero mixed up in that hornet's nest.Pastangum "doesn't watch sports" Felinix
Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says:

Good timing! Vern here could use something to be thankful for. :)  I have my guess, but because it's based on spoiler content, I'll say only that a hero like Mighty doesn't rely solely on himself but knows whom to turn to for specialized aid. And it won't be the first time the character has performed such services in story.

Congrats on making good progress on the house demoli-- er, renovation.  One blessing for you to count is that nobody found any exposed wires, nor was hit by sections of wall, nor otherwise hurt.  

Pastangum Felinix

K. Williams (crazy_quill) says: NON-COMIC COMMENT: When I clicked on the "Webcomics United" ad, I got a warning about it being a phishing site. Same when I typed the address directly. Has WU been hacked? Do you know how to get in touch with them? Or is it a project wonderful problem? OK, on to the REAL COMIC COMMENT: Vern really is a mess, isn't he? Poor slob, I hope it all works out for him in the end - even if his mess is mostly of his own making.
Chic Geek (chic_geek) says:

have a good turkey day,Ed!

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

Happy Thanksgiving, now matter how rescheduled!  (My clan routinely transplants Channukah to January, to avoid the holiday traffic!)

Mark Chapman (aardvark86) says:

'm glad that you elaborated your conditional good wishes. A woman in my office gave our boss one of these, saying "If I don't see you tomorrow then have a good weekend", and I imagined the corrolary to be "but if I do then damn you, damn you to hell!"

Wayne (wayne) says:

Crud, I forgot about Pubkin' Chunkin'.  Maybe they'll have repeats.

Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says: @aardvark86, heh, because if she did see the boss it'd be because he called her in for weekend overtime? I can see the frustration there. ;) Pastangum Felinix
Chic Geek (chic_geek) says:

Remember folks, vote early and often! Let's keep Everyday Heroes numbers high.

 

Sam Schmern (the_occupant) says:

A ticket back to Cleaveland with your child support paid off and 85 bucks is a far better place than you started.

Tetra Valent (4_valent) says:

No wonder Vern is disappointed - Cleveland???

I pound away at walls all the time - there are a lot of forehead-shaped dents around here.

Ed, I hope those are all interior walls that you've knocked down.

Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says:

Voting time again? "Oh, yeah."  (Kidding - I vote daily, twice on workdays.)

Poor Vern seems to have problems with impulse control. Gambling with money that isn't his... drug-runner mule, and he sounded like a junkie when we first met him.  Not to mention his ex-wife and child/ren, though that might be beyond the comic's PG rating.

Unusual scene changing over the last few strips, from Vern's money troubles to Carlos and Violet, back to Vern, then back to Violet. But then, when I draw my own comic I can decide what works better. :P

Pastangum "HOW long ago did I say I was going to?" Felinix

Wayne (wayne) says:

Hey, Tetra: don't you know that all the little chicks with their crimson lips know Cleveland Rocks?!

Vern should be happy he's not going to Akron or Toledo.  Saturday night in Toledo, Ohio is like being nowhere at all.  They roll up the sidewalks at 7pm and people who were once there are not seen again, except for two lonely truckers from Big Plains, Montana, and a salesman from places unknown.

John Campbell (jcampbel) says:

Cleveland? We're going to Cleveland?! *wag wag wag*

John E (barn0wl) says:

Hi Ed, just wanted to say that I found your web comic through Top Web Comics (they featured Carrie as one of the "name this character" things to register a vote). Loved the look of Carrie, so checked out your comic, then read the entire archive. Excellent comic! A lot of fun with excellent characters (both main charcters and supporting cast). They have great reactions.

Thank you so very much for your hard work providing me with a much needed laugh!

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

Wait, are they on the same bus?

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

Tetra:  Freebird did say "back" --presumably, that's his home town.

Sean Duggan (duggansc) says: ^_^ So, I take it that the Captain Obvious bit is solely a vote incentive since it didn't show up in the next day's strip?
Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says:

Looks like it, @mental_mouse. This sequence very much reminds me of an 80s movie with Bill Murray, <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0100449/">Quick Change</a>. (trying an HTML link, apologies if it comes out broken)  Complete with oh-so-nearly getting caught on the getaway bus/plane.

Pastangum "what, no facepaint?" Felinix

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Sorry if the artwork didn't make it clear ... Dinah and Blades are on another bus, passing by in the background.  They're heading to Chicago; Vern is going home to Cleveland.

Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says:

@duggansc, maybe Ed shuffled the page sequence around to keep things in in-story chronological order or something.  Having two separate plots to work through can cause awkward timing issues.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Thank you John E!  Tell your friends!

Sean, you are correct.  I pictured Capt. Obvious coming in to explain Violet's remarks, but couldn't think of more than the one-panel joke, so it just became a vote incentive.

John Campbell (jcampbel) says:

The only way I've been able to figure out to do proper links in this comment system is to open up the page I'm trying to link to in a different window and drag-and-drop the little bookmark icon from the address bar into the comment box, then edit the link text (carefully, so as not to lose its magic link properties) to what I want it to say.

John E (barn0wl) says:

WOO HOOOO! Everyday Heroes broke into the top 100 on TWC!!!! You're at #92 after my vote this morning!

Blades needs a SERIOUS butt-whuppin. Not to mention a LOOOOONG stretch behind bars ...

Wayne (wayne) says:

This one deserves a definite ROFLMAO!  She could probably test the waters by posting on one of the fanfic sites.

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Fanfiiiiiiic! :D
David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

And we get to see how superheros respond to "Real-People" fanfic.

John E (barn0wl) says:

... and still in the top 100! That is fabulous! I love it when a plan comes together! (Well, okay ... not my plan so much ... but I been a-votin.) :D

I'm wondering how Jane would like Dinah's story? Will she react with jealousy? Start wondering about just what goes on when MM "busts" a girl villain? Or will she be more ... um shall we say absorbed?

Oh, you are a wicked one Eddurd!

Sean Duggan (duggansc) says: ^_^ There was a very short arc in Empowered that involved Sistah Spooky and Empowered providing copies of yaoi doujinshi to the male Superhomeys in an effort to convey how they felt about objectification. In that case, it backfired because the males they presented it to saw it as a huge compliment and evidence of their celebrity.
David Kufner (djkblue) says:

You know I already read to many webcomics first I get hooked on yours. Now u keep adding more to my list :) thanks
