131 – Failure to Launchon September 2, 2013 at 12:16 AM
First of all, here’s the link to Strip # 26!
Secondly, I just want to say how entertaining it is to be able to bring in this little plot point! I’d given Joe’s powers a fair bit of thought before I started the comic, and wanted to make sure he had enough that he’d be able to Hero in any given situation (or be funny, whichever worked best), but I also wanted there to be some limitations to what he’s able to do – and a difference or two between himself and the Major. After all, once the story catches up with them we want there to be some interesting tension (and not just “*Grunt* Bizarro Smash”)
So, Joe does indeed have a fear of flying – whether this means he is capable of it or not remains to be seen but I suspect that both he and the Major are going to find that different powers come more easily to each of them… guess we’ll have to wait until the next time we see them together to find out who’s better at what!
To find out if that’s going to be on Wednesday, don’t forget to tune in for the next update! We’ll see you then, Averaginos!
Even with clipped wings, a bird can fly much better than that. Clearly, he’s just lazy.
I also suspect he’s been a little spoiled on treats…he is Tobi’s pet after all
Wow… I followed the link to refresh my memory of strip 26, and if you ever need proof of your art skill improving, just flicking back and forth between that and today’s is it.
Yeah, I went back and flicked through all my old ones a couple weeks back and boy; there’s a change over those hundred and thirty odd strips, all right!
Makes me excited to think what it’ll look like in another year from now
