I'm a middle-aged computer programmer living Fort Wayne, Indiana. I've always enjoyed doodling and sketching, finally decided a few years ago to start my own webcomic.

I've been married, divorced, re-married, and widowed ... currently it's just me and two cats. Two very annoying cats, who only sit on my lap when I'm trying to draw.

Two minutes ago she had dream Chris Hemsworth in her face ... now she's got dirt. Bad deal if you ask me. (And she didn't even get the hat.)

What happens when Summer confronts the villain? Click on the TWC Vote button to see!

Sorry for the late update, it's been a busy week. On the bright side, I got all my Christmas shopping done early. Hope you're all doing well.

What's happening?
Mr. Mighty seems to be having difficulty with this opponent. And haven't we seen that giant mechanical thing before?

What will the next episode bring? Click on the TWC Vote button for a hint! (Not a very good one, but please click anyway.)

I have no other news. Talk among yourselves if you wish.
Weigh cup
Ever have that happen, where you dream about what's waking you up? And then you can never remember what you were dreaming about. As for what's got Jane so upset, next episode will tell. (The TWC Vote preview isn't much help, but please vote anyway.)

Daaang, this took a while to draw. Doing the dream sequence without outlines was harder than I thought, plus this page was just plain long. There's a bit of foreshadowing (aside from the fact that Summer has a crush on Chris Hemsworth.)

We've survived Black Friday, now can we survive 24/7 holiday music?
@Mysterious Dark Lord v3.2: Hey, where's Perry?
Nothing out of the ordinary
Of course it's a simple ordinary package, containing nothing that would interest you. Like he said, vitamins ... or maybe tax documents.

But, as you may guess, ordinary packages can lead to extraordinary situations ... click on the TWC Vote button for a hint. (A totally misleading hint)
UPDATE: Oops, forgot to update the vote incentive earlier. It's good now.

For everyone in the USA, hope you're having a great extended Thanksgiving weekend. For everyone else, hope you're having a great regular day!
Mushy stuff
All these couples, sittin' in a tree ... and yes, in-comic Joan will still be around.

Romance abounds in this chapter, along with a few secrets revealed and a bit more backstory. If you want to know how some of the other kids feel, click on the TWC Vote button.

Here in Indiana we got a nice sheet of ice over everything (which is quickly melting). Folks on the East Coast, can you ship some of that snow to California? Everybody, wherever you are, stay safe.
Inktober 2018
As requested, here's a collage of my #inktober drawings, on the theme of "Evil Opposites" (and a few "Good Opposites" of the villains). In some cases, they're shown out of their original order, so as to fit better onto the page.

Summer's opposite would of course be "Winter", who fires ice beams out of her eyes.

Ben T. Sharpley is "The Hunchback of IUPUI" (Notre Dame already had one).

Instead of becoming a civil rights lawyer, Lee Free Sr. turns to violent revolt (and mashes up Che and Arnold).

Mr. Mighty's sisters Marilyn and Monroe become the villain team of Emma and Stone.

Greta is shown as Grendel, from the Beowulf saga.

Insect-sized Julia Skimmer becomes the lethal Lena Hornet.

G-Nat's opposite is "Bee-He-Moth"; part bee, part moth. Don't ask me how that works.

The Evil Opposite of speedster Dot Dash is "Leadfoot".

Counterpart to Dolly Bird is "Jaws Harpy". I have to admit, I creeped myself out a bit drawing this one.

In contrast to shapeless Matt O'Morph, here's Mitt Miter. What's his angle? (About 45 degrees.)

A "Good Opposite" to villainess Dinah Might is heroic Dee Fuse.

Remember the S.A.V.E.U.S. admin, Shrinking Violent? Here's her counterpart, Climbing Rose. (Don't biplanes, just rent them.)

Mild-mannered Lee Free III becomes hot-tempered Sore Thor IV.

Carrie's dad, John Pelosi, used to play football. This is his opposite, Al O'Pecia.

The counterpart to charming Captain Charisma, here's Lieutenant Loathing.

Remember Mr. Mighty's old friend from Mexico, the red-costumed, insect-themed, size-changing superhero who may or may not have his own TV show? Anyway, here's his opposite, "El Mosquito Morado" (The Mauve Mosquito).

Evil opposite to Captain Obvious is Captain Obfuscation.

Zinger Sharpley is known for quick-witted insults. Her counterpart, T.D. Umm, is the most boring girl in school.

Reformed villain Professor Odious is replaced by unreformed villain Dr. De-Light, who delights in de-lighting domiciles.

Another "Good Opposite", emotionless Marilee Unpleasant becomes good-hearted but bad-tempered Charity Choleric.

Professor Odious's son, Mel Odious, loves music. Here's his opposite, Kay Koffinous.

Villainess "Dark" Ann Troubled is replaced by "Sweetness" Ann Light.

Uma becomes "Drac-Uma"!

Here's a villainous version of Carrie, who's very scary, stealing all she can carry.

Remember S.B.D., who turns invisible but emits a terrible odor when he does? Here's his counterpart, Belchin' Awffle.

Respectable mom Jenny B. Goode becomes Jenny R. Badde, who ... erm ... who likes ... *cough* ... excuse me, I have to go take a cold shower.

Steve plus evil equals "Stevil". A couple of notes: first, he's only 12, he can't rock the full villain goatee yet; and second, for an Indianapolis Colts fan, this is the most evil thing I can think of.

One last "Good Opposite", Dr. Unpleasant is replaced by helpful Dr. Ubiquitous and his Apprehendroid ®.

Bit of a spoiler ... these three are basically their own evil opposites. And they've all been in the strip before, guess away at your own leisure.

Imagine if Jane had started out as a hero but, after her friend Goldie was killed, became a Punisher-like vigilante. I just call her "Dark Jane".

And finally, counterpart to Mr. Mighty himself is "Mr. Meanie". I know how he feels, I can't stand pumpkin spice myself.

Thanks to Manga Shoggoth for the theme suggestion. New chapter starts Friday! (And please vote on TWC.)
@Manga Shoggoth: All questions will be answered at the proper time. And to answer one, yes, the next chapter starts with hideous rh ... wait ... with rhymes and cadence. (Hey, I don't want to have my poetic license revoked.)
@maarvarq: Thanks! It was first used back in Chapter 12 (when I had another guest artist working). Don'cha just love it when you can re-use artwork?
Good night ... for now
What's behind that mysterious door? What link do Walter and Beetrix share? We may find out some day.

This chapter ends (finally!) ... and in response to reader requests, a bonus page will be coming on Monday, including all of my #inktober drawings. New chapter will start next Friday.

Also, having gotten back into the drawing habit, I will be returning as artist for the strip. Many MANY thanks to Elisa Price for helping me get the story rolling again! And if you click on the TWC Vote button, you may see the reaction from the strip characters.

Election ads are finally over!
How about Tumblr?
@Manga Shoggoth: Can you view Tumblr? I can post them all there. Alternately, I could make a big honkin' collage and post them here as a bonus page after this chapter ends.
Thanks for asking
So, Walter is real. And polite. And slightly disturbing (to us, at least; not to Beetrix). Too bad this is a couple of days late for Halloween.

If you want a little glimpse of where Walter is, click on the TWC Vote button. New month, can we get back to our old Top 100 ranking?

One more page to go in this chapter; next chapter includes some flashbacks. Also, for the first time, I successfully competed #inktober -- a drawing per day! Check out the artwork on our Facebook page:

Waiting for an answer.

The days grow short, the shadows grow long (unless you're in the Southern Hemisphere).
Feeding mind and body
I confess, I eat kinda like Philo does.

Sorry for the late update, got distracted by r/l issues. Also, last night, my sister took me out for a belated birthday present ... we went to see a stage production of "Holmes and Watson". Very intriguing ... just when I thought I had it figured out, it threw a couple more twists into the plot. See it if you get a chance!

If you haven't been following our Facebook page, I've been doing drawings of "Evil Opposites" of all the characters here. (Thanks to Manga Shoggoth for the suggestion.) Check it out if you can!

And don't forget to vote for us on TopWebComics. Thanks!
Say, can you see?
Well, there was this thing called the Invisible College ... OK, that was a bit obscure.

Losing by a nose
You saw this coming, right?

Don't forget to hit the TWC Vote button for a preview of the next episode. Climbing back up the ranks, slowly but surely ...

I'm starting to draw a bit more for myself ... maybe try doing a drawing per day for #inktober. Any suggestions for a theme?

Speaking of superhero battles, how many folks here read Sidekick Girl?

Baseball and football season together ... thanks to Dad and me, Mom's not gonna see the TV until November.
Well, shoot
Y'know, Doc, when they talk about "shooting yourself in the foot", you don't have to be so danged literal!

Sorry this one went up a day late, busy at home. Please keep voting for us anyway! Vote and see how the heroes handle winning the day!

Folks in the Carolinas, please stay safe! Everybody else, send good thoughts to folks in the Carolinas. And maybe a buck or two.

Getting hyper
Will Marilee follow through with her father's plans? Will Mr. Mighty be hyperframmitized? Will Summer intervene? Will the rain in Spain decide to break tradition and fall in the mountains? Stay tuned ... and maybe hit the TWC Vote button for a hint!

Sorry I was a bit late in posting this. We've had relatives visiting this week, so I've been falling a bit behind in everything. Today is getting-caught-up day, I promise.

BTW, if you want to read another excellent superhero comic, check out "Strong Female Protagonist" at http://strongfemaleprotagonist.com/ . I hope to be this good someday.
