I have the feeling this could be trouble, Jackson having a crush on Liberty Lass....

Sounds to me like it's the quickest way of being outed.

Yes Abby has to be careful... the question is, will she?

She might need to speak to Alison Green (aka Mega Girl) from SFP.

"Hey, Odo... can you make my next costume show my midriff, and maybe have a bit of a "V" neck?"

"LL, I've worked with a lot of superheroes, over the years, and I think it might be time for a chat about some of the responsibilities that superheroes have, in areas other than crime fighting and rescuing those in peril. Now, as a young lady, I'm sure you've learned how the clothes you wear can affect the way people see you. With superheroes, the effects on other people are amplified, and it's important to take those effects into consideration, as they can influence both the superhero's and their alternate identity's lives. I will make the modifications you asked for, if that's what you want, but I would appreciate it if you would consider the effects those changes could have, first."

Abby's not going to be showing any midriff.

Deena might, but then Deena is not a superhero.

Abby sounds like you could walk naked in front of him & he wouldn't notice unless you put on the glasses.

Wellll... the reason Jackson notices Deena and not Abby most of the time is because Deena is a flirt and wears suggestive clothing and Abby is more of a wall flower.

And now Abby learns the first of many problems that come with a secret identity

Yup.

And that is the fun of them. Not for the character... but for us as readers (and definitely for me as a writer).

I'm so happy it's Friday! I was looking forward to more of this. And do we have a love triangle blooming? I love it already! :-D

Also, I love your creative names for Twitter and Facebook. Facetome sounds 100% more awesome! XD

Originally I had the real-world names in the script. But when I went to do the lettering, I realized that in the Bronze Age they never used trademarked names like that, but always made up their own (like 'NewsTime' magazine).

The other thing that may not be quite as obvious here but will come out more in future issues, is that Deena is way more into social media than Abby is. Mostly because Abby has a lot more stuff to do, like work, and babysitting her brother... and outside of high school, Deena has very little else to do.

I just noticed that you occasionally have some panels with a plain colored or gradiated background. I've always liked how this technique breaks up the page and allows the reader to focus more on the conversation.

I first noticed it in the Dilbert strip and then just noticed it here upon a fourth reading or so...

Yup. I try to do it when I want the focus to be on the expression and/or the words. (It also saves render time.) I noticed it in my old 1980s comics and it is still done today though I think not as much.
