So I'm guessing either those pills grant temporary super-human durability or temporarily remove super-strength. I'm guessing that since Jane has the bottle it's the former.

I'm also guessing that this stuff is a secret kept by a small group, to prevent people from popping super-strength pills for a high or using them to become super-villains.
@Opus the Poet: I think this is because she is reaching the point in her life that romantic/sexual relationships begin to become important and the possibility of dead boyfriend/girlfriend has reared its head if she's not prepared. I also see this as akin to providing condoms to prevent unwanted progeny, and how you hope they get used but sometimes in the heat of passion they are forgotten.
Apparently this does not apply if your power is just
"Impossible to Kill" without strength or other hazardous enhancements.
Ding ding ding!
@Anon: We have a winner 🏆!
@Anon: I didn't see the anagram until you mentioned it, but that's GOT to be it! "Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex."

Larry Niven? (compare Nevinyrral's Disk, from M:tG)
Try again
@Manga Shoggoth: Definitely not it. :-)
Although using Google Translate is cheating
Doesn't varrine translate as grave, making nylvarrine "No Grave"?

Probably not it...
i can only assume that that is a suppressant of some kind and summer is going to be mad about it
Terribly Meaninful Information
Spot the hidden joke.

Yes, this is the secret to superhero sex. More exposition to follow.

Turns out there wasn't enough interest in the repeat comics class. We're planning to try again next year, with a basic and an advanced class. Also coming up in a few weeks is "Comic Book In A Day", which should be a fun event.

As for the vote incentive, it looks like there's a problem with Tumblr. Luckily, TopWebComics now accepts image uploads directly, so the problem should be solved. You should try it out by clicking that button there, hint hint.

On to more drawing.

@Opus the Poet: All true, but you seem to =have missed the point that in panel 5, Jane looks as if she needed to gather her courage before sharing such vital information. :)
@Delta-v: This isn't just about sex, this could be a matter of life and death. It's either she knows about this and either decides to use the drugs and have a sex life, or not use the drugs and doesn't. But not knowing about the drugs she could get intimate withe a boy (or girl) and at a critical moment crush something attached to said boy (or girl) during that few seconds when the body takes over and fulfills its genetic imperative. I have sprained fingers when entertaining a woman who trained her Kegels daily, and that's with baseline human strength. Summer is orders of magnitude beyond baseline human even if she doesn't train her Kegels. Things would get crushed beyond repair or further use if she doesn't get this information.
YEAH TOAST!
Vote incentive is a "broken link" icon
Whatever you sent to TWC isn't posting. I don't mind, it's just that there's something supposed to be there and the fact that it isn't disturbs my sense of esthetics. It's like knowing the Venus de Milo had arms but nobody thought to make a picture and put it in a safe place.
@Delta-v: Whoops. Too late. Already old. Get off my lawn, ya whippersnapper! ;)

@Quarktime: Yeah, you're right. Don't get old. Your memory gets mushy when you get old. ^^

(I shouda looked it up.)
@TheAuldGrump: Yeah, it's good to see you, @Eddurd! Hope things are going acceptably for you!
@Delta-v: You mean Larry Niven. HE wrote "Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex". It was in "All The Myriad Ways".

Talked to David at a convention a couple of years ago. Still waiting for Method for Madness and Time for Treason. I hope he finishes them before he finally sporates.

Heh, Jane was a villainess, and she still has problems approaching the subject of sex (and even after wearing that outfit, too). ^^

@Quarktime: Yep, David Gerrold pretty much nailed it. ^^
