Asshole bosses, am I right?

This section of the story isn't as humorous, but it'll get back to that afterwards. It's a small update, but the page I had planned was kind of gargantuan so I decided it would work better breaking it up into three updates instead.

So yeah, black and white for a while definitely reduces the workload, which when combined with the smaller update helped give my hand it needed rest and it's feeling a lot better now. A long way from where it should be, but a lot closer to where it was before I aggravated it.

@martyrex: Lol, I'm guessing you've come across a few stories where they've conveniently forgotten powers before? XD

The answer to your question is kind of spoilery, but eh, whatever, this comic is mainly about the humor. Yes, once she gets a power it doesn't go anywhere, but expect her to keep pulling random powers out of the air because I'm kind of making fun of Superman here, who has, shall we say, a history of doing so. And yes, I'm also going to conveniently forget about one of her powers at one point, but it's on purpose and the comic will acknowledge it.

Also, she hasn't figured it out yet, but her power isn't to destroy any type of object with her mind, it's to destroy leaf blowers only.

I said there was going to be violence against leaf blowers.

This update took a lot longer than I had hoped for a bunch of reasons. Before starting this comic I had a bit of a buffer (or more accurately, I did some preliminary work laying out pages and had a few drawings done on a bunch of pages ahead) built up to test if it was even plausible to make, and on this update I had almost no buffer. In addition, I had a minor setback with my left hand, had other stuff that I had to take care of, and it was one of those pages that was resistant to progress. I kept chipping away at it but wasn't really getting almost anywhere. The good news is that my hand has been feeling a good amount better lately, though still not back at normal.

So to get things moving along faster again, I'm going to make updates in black and white for a while. Fortunately, it coincides with a portion of the comic that doesn't really need color anyway, so I don't think it'll detract from it much at all, and might actually improve the linework since I can spend more time on the drawings themselves than the coloring and shading.

Superpower problems

Yeesh, this page was lot more difficult than I expected, which is the main reason the page is later than I anticipated. I don't know why, but I had so much difficulty drawing it this time, almost all of the panels put up a fight. I haven't struggled this much with drawings in ages.

Hopefully the next page'll be a little faster to make.

No spit-takes in space

I've been slipping on the two week schedule lately because it was right about at the maximum I could manage, but that doesn't make room for any miscalculations like how much work an update requires (like the panel at the bottom there requiring extra), clip studio paint refusing to open, or my computer freezing while saving which wiped out a session's worth of work. Gah.

So I guess it's back to a 'however long it takes, but hopefully every three weeks or less if I can get them done sooner' schedule while I try to get a little more caught up again.

And Samantha's back in space. It's a brief excursion this time, she'll be back on Earth the page after the next one.

I... might have reflexively done this. With my phone obviously, not wandered Antarctica after gaining superpowers thinking I was hallucinating. My phone, however, did not respond with sass.

I normally don’t like giving spoilers, but just in case anyone’s concerned that this comic is only about someone who’s stuck in orbit, don’t worry, how she gets back to Earth is revealed in the next update.

More slightly modified NASA imagery used for the backgrounds again.

New comic - Supposedly Super
http://supposedlysuper.smackjeeves.com/comics/2505622/2/

Hey everyone!

So what's going on here? First up: my right hand has still not healed. Argh and WTF. However! Even with the carpal tunnel in my left wrist, I can still manage a little art making. So, I've been going bonkers from not making art or comics and had an idea that I've been playing around with for a long while partially inspired by one punch man and the preposterous abilities of Superman. The premise:

No superheroes. No supervillains. Just one aimless 28 year old who gets crazy superpowers from smoking magical weed... and has no idea what to do with them.

This is a comic about daily life... with superpowers.

Contains swearing, occasional sexual themes (no nudity or sexual acts, just conversation) and acts of violence against leaf blowers. Is mainly lighthearted in tone.

Updates whenever I can get them done, but I'm hoping for a new installment every 2-3 weeks at first. You can be notified of updates by following me there, on Twitter, Tapas, Tumblr or Patreon where you can get read an update in advance and in high resolution. Even $1 a month would help me out a lot!

This idea works great for my current situation because this comic:

- Isn't 350 pages
- Is simple to draw (far less character and location design, no crowd sequences), which works as a perfect venue to practice drawing with my left hand
- Has small arcs and isn't really about plot, so won't leave people hanging for years in case I hurt my left wrist enough that I need to stop working on it.

I'd like to get back to work on the Kyoshi story but it's just more than I can handle right now, especially because I can only draw for about one hour every other day. I'm even learning to do some coloring and layout with my head tracker, but I can't draw with it.

The website isn't quite ready, but I suck at CSS and didn't want to delay posting here about it any longer.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the comic! :)

Standard disclaimer that the accounts in this comic are entirely fictional. I didn't check if those accounts actually exist but if they do I don't know them and I'm not trying to put words in their mouths or make a shout out to anyone. Also, more NASA imagery used again.

Simpler page this time. I'm not going to make a habit of making text conversation pages, this is the only one I had planned.

Artist update

Hey everyone!

@Sudarshan Mukherjee: Thanks. I know it's been quite a while since I've updated, but that's because my hand still hasn't healed. I don't want to just cancel the comic because I want to resume work on it eventually, but I don't know when I'll be able to. I kneep on accidentally reaggravating my hand because tendons are crazy fragile when healing, as one doctor put it, about the consistency of jello.

I just don't know what to do, so for now I'm leaving it uncanceled so if my hand ever heals I still have the possibility of continuing it.

In the meantime, I'm working on a novel since I have a way to write without using my hands. I'll post about it here and on my various social media sites when it's complete (it's currently over halfway done).
@Guest: Technically there's been improvement, but it's still a long way from healed. I tried drawing with it recently and couldn't even manage 15 minutes of it. :(
I forgot I can't use my ipad at a specific angle and accidentally aggravated my hand. I was behind my normal schedule already with my left wrist problem, and now my right hand as well. Sigh.

I'm hoping it won't take longer than a month to heal. In the meantime I'll post some sketches that I already have on deviantart and tumblr like character and costume designs (the links are in the sidebar on the left).

Sorry for the delay and I'll try to get back to work as quick as I can.
@DarkFlare: Thanks! Kuruk can be a lot of fun to write when he shows up. ^^
