Back in one piece! Otakon was great fun, it’s the biggest con we go to. Devil’s Panties and Draconia Chronicles made great neighbors.
I’m glad I had the chance to say hi to Mookie from Dominic Deegan and Alan from Rival Angels. I might have to convince Otakon to put a webcomics area together next year, and do a panel or two.
Mr. Webby was a big hit, look for the kickstarter soon!
I’ll be at Wizard World Chicago August 9th to 12th, Spinnerette’s last con of the year.
Uh oh. What does Dr. U mean by going critical? Gah please no man-spider.
Well aside from wall crawling and some spinnerets arms seem to be the biggest mutation. She never developed extra eyes or little mandibles, so hopefully it’s just magnifying those changes that have already been made…. although having multiple spinneret glands could be even more bothersome then extra arms.
Hmm it is true that we haven’t see if it’s affected her spinner glands.
Actually looking closer at the first panel. It looks like Spins new arms automatically went to the web to hold on.
Hmm, critical mass? Spider-Man? To be honest, my first thought too. As horrid as it may be, im pretty curious how Heather would look like and how the rest of the gang will react (specialy Marylin).
so… it’s just a matter of time before she transforms into a big huge spider, then she dies, and reborns again as a normal human being with two sets of arms??
People keep begging “please no man-spider”, but you’re all missing a major point: Spinny’s a chick XD
But surely if she did go woman-spider, she’d be a lot like Alexis and ultimately too similar? They’ve already kinda done the woman-spider thing with the dryder storyline…Unless of course the intention is to bring her back into the story by having her team up with Spinny as an unexpected ally…she would be pretty much the only one who understood Spinny’s situation – or was the Spiderman man-spider just a mindless killing machine? Apologies, I didn’t follow the comics.
kitty: so? i really don’t think i’d like spinny with the head of a spider.
It would certainly be interesting…not so sure I’d like it either, but it would certainly make for a good storyline…yet something tell’s me Krow won’t go that route…
It’s a good thing people don’t have fingerprints in comics or Dr Uni could find out who she was in ten minutes or less.
her pose in panel 1 is distinctive to a particular species of spider but I cant put my finger on it
Critical mass actually make it sound like she’s about to blow.
Yeah, my first thought was, “She’s going to blow up?! o.o” And then I realized that that’s… probably not going to happen. I’d personally like to see her develop some more mutations – extra eyes, etc. But, truth be told, I’m not exactly sure what “going critical” exactly means here… I hope Spinny will be alright. :<
*Heather grows extra eyes*
Heather: huh what’s going on? *Legs and arms become spider like* umm this Is New. *expanding*
Dr. U: she’s about to blow. Greta we need to get out of here!
Greta: yes doktor
Marilyn: Heather! *Rushes to her side*
Heather: you have to get out of here Marilyn.
Marilyn: I can’t! I love you
Heather: I love you too. *passionate kiss right before huge explosion*
Dr. U (just outside of explosion ring) must go faster. just go faster.
Greta: I’m sorry doktor this is as fast as I can go. *engulfed in explosion*
Heather: huh? I’m alive? And my pedipalps are gone. huh Marilyn? Marilyn!
Marilyn: uggh *sparking electricity* itch what happened?
Heather: Marilyn…you’re generating electricity.
Marilyn: oh cool. I’m like Cole.
Heather: actually I thought you seemed more like Static Shock.
Marilyn: only with better looks
The “Man-Spider” arc was from the 1990′s TV show, where Peter grew 6 arms (in reference to the comic’s 6-arms saga) and then mutated into an anthropomorphic spider. It also happened three times in the comics (I cant remember when or where the first time happened) but the second time happened when he was infected with the Spider-Virus by a villainess called the Queen and turned into a giant spider before moulting/”giving birth” to his human form with organic webbing. Peter’s inner spider took over again during the other arc when he was killed by the pseudo-vampire Morlun, and he was reborn (again) with increased strength and venomous stingers in his wrists.
If Anyones at risk when Heather go Woman spider Is Marilyn… Because female Spiders eat their mates…. so… yeah…
Marilyn: when I said I wanted yo to warms, I didn’t mean like this.
contrary to your statement the is one species of spider that I heard of where the male performs a special dance that tells the female not to eat him
The mental image you just gave me made me laugh.
That must be one epic Tango De Spider….. But I assume…. As Heather may be a ‘Brown’ Spider I’d assume eating her mate doesn’t change matters….
So, Mongoose… You expect a woman with ALS to dance? o_O
She could if she was wearing her armour… or should I say, amour…
Since mating seems to be involved, and being both females means no fertilization of any eggs [unless Marilyn is secretly a Futanari?] the concept of eating after mating is totally invalid…
o_0 naver say the word that starts with a F again
Delicious uses the F word. It is super effective.
I think Mongoose reacts to the F word in a similar manner that I do to the T word.
@Asura: Ohhh. Thanks for filling me in on that, I felt a little out of the loop there ^_^
@wolf.spider: What T-word?
True…. But we have yet to see what Heather is like when mother nature gives her her monthly gift.
Kitty don’t make me say it. The last time someone said it. The Kracken appeared dead in Switzerland. That wasn’t easy to clean up. The time before that Atlantis sunk into the sea. The time before that was the last mass extinction. Every time it’s mentioned I black out and something terrible happens.
You forgot about the time it happened in the alternate universe where you destroyed the entire Human race.
No one’s supposed to know about that incident Todes.
oh Tentacle fetish is just as bad especially when the two of them are combined
except me, since that was my new created alternate universe do you realize how long it to me to fix your little incident
They Won’t…. Because it never happened… in this reality anyway… And yeah… Our Power Supply bill went through the roof that month and still owe us.
*wakes up* ow what happened? Sees a supernova…oh….I got it.
look like I can open up the old supernova enrgy feed again
The Rats must have got in the Atomizer again…
Actually… the Kraken and Atlantis were me. Don’t give me that look! I was hungry!!!
Oh that’s right I killed the Goliathan…
I did some research. (May Azathoth spare Wikipedia) The first Man-Spider transformation in the comics was in Marvel Fanfare vol. 1 #1-2, when Peter’s inner spider was woken up by the Savage Land Mutates and he turned into a predatory spider-monster. He’s also been transformed into it in Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man Vol. 1 #9, where he defeated the Avengers and several X-Men, in addition to Avengers Disassembled (The Queen arc) and The Other, which I mentioned above. Also, his clone Kaine was temporarily transformed into the nearly-identical Tarantula by the Queen in the recent Spider-Island arc.
It should be “You don’t know what a C-K Reactor truly is.” in panel 4.
Prediction: Dr. U knows what is Spinny’s problem, knows it’s serious and can use the machine – with the CK reactor – to solve it. IF the heroes let him have the reactor.
On that note, there is even a chance that the hit with the raygun wasn’t even what triggered this in the first place.
Yes, but will he bother to tell them he can?
..and miss the opportunity to prove how much smarter he is?
and bargin for the reactor
Karen, yes. Because it’s much safer and practical for his own self-interest to do so.
He’ll tell them cuz that would make for an interesting experient. FOR SCIENCE!!!!
Gretta is good at making it very hard.
Bow chicka bow wow!
Seven comments in. I knew it would be in the top ten.
Frame 2. Cutest Greta face ever. Her phrasing made it even better.
now does she like it rough
I think she likes it sweet.
sweet can be rough
Sweet and Rough….. Hmmmmmm……… Whipped Cream on Pineapples?
with a cherry on top
No. With wrong wolf on top.
what if she likes to be on top
What Greta wants, Greta gets. Wooooo!!!!!
I was going to suggest that in zero gravity, who’s on top is a moot point but…I’m trying to work out the mechanics of it and I don’t think it would work…unless there was some clever manipulation by the mistress of gravity ;D
Zero Gravity Fornication? could work.
Wait, the physics of fornication? Does this require a goat or not..?
One goat sacrifice coming up!
If they were able to keep themselves together zero gravity doesn’t stop movement all together it maybe a bit awkward but they could definitely do it.
I’ve been practicing!
So thats why you kept going into the Zero Gravity Chamber with my assistant… WRONG WOLF!!!!!
don’t tell me that is also why there is a sticky mess in my female hologram projector
No nothing dodgy there. I was just squirting at it with my water gun…. Although… it’s not even mine… I found it hanging around Wolf spider’s pad… though it was his stress relief.
That was my new patented super gel.
I was about to start mas producing those projectors and selling them to lonely desperate computer geeks who need to get laid
Well…. that can be a demonstration model….
Wait… that was a hologram projector?! *spits out circuitry*
asura do I need to put you in the the muzzle of utter shame again?
*floating in the zero grav chamber* Weeeee!!!!!
You mean this? *holds up a badly gnawed piece of leather and metal* You’re telling me this wasn’t bubblegum?
Greta. Second Panel. Absolutely adorable.
Hmm…. Seconded. And the last panel. She barely looks like a villain.
I totally agree. This artist really knows how to bring out the cute in Greta.
The perfect balance of pyschotic and adorable.
And wrong wolf? Do you have total claim or is she free to…experiment? She is, after all, still pretty much a student, and you know how they like to try different things…just sayin’, I would ;D
trust me I sneaked in to her back yard once, she definitely loves to experiment with her toys
…I’m asking if you are ok sharing XD
As I said, what Great-chan wants, Greta-chan gets.
Oh yes Greta. Yes you are.
Love Greta’s look in panel 2. Perfect combo of utterly psychotic and cute. Cuteoic? Psyte? Hmm…need to come up with a word that fits that.
Wolfen took the wood right out of my mouth.
Psycuteic (or perhaps Psycutic) now approved as descriptive of the Hotness that is Greta.
wow. worst typo evar.
I wouldn’t say that there was the time when I tried to say hot Asian chick and a typo turned it into a slur
This is why Wolfen IS da’King!
No. I’m da king! *boots Wolfen off the throne and tosses him a jester hat*
Oooh! I like this game. *kicks Asura off the throne and sits on the throne*
*rips throne out from underneith wrong wolf*
@ Syncline: lol. Just… lol.
@ Asura: Everyone knows you’re our resident eldritch abomination.
Now would everyone please stop playing tug of war with my throne? I just had that thing polished.
But we hardly get to play the Usurp-The-Throne game nowadays. Now during the Middle Ages… Heh, now that was a hoot!
Gimmie that back! *tries to steal throne* Don’t make me come back with an army of hyenas! I’ll do it!
Ahem…boys, give me back my jester hat : P
Aha! We have a new jester now! And it’s none other than my favorite Batman villain herself. =D
Yeah I gave up the position a while ago in favor of high priest. I decided this new position gives me access to the goat sacrifices.
well wolfen I was going to give you the throne back but now that you have mention having your eye on Harley well…IT IS ON
@Wolf.spider: if your high priest then that make me the pope of this little mach religion
Actually you’re the goat herder. The only one with greater access to the goats then me.
Me: ♫ Decades of denial is simply why I’ll be king undisputed, respected, saluted, and seen for the wonder I am! Yes, my teeth and ambitions are bared. Be prep- ♪
Lawyer: Excuse me? You have been served.
Me: “The Walt Disney Corporation has requested you appear in court,” blah, blah, blah. Yes, yes I have been served. *pulls out knife and fork* Now, my army, who’s hungry?
asura you now if you simply played the mirror image of the song would wouldn’t have gotten in trouble
::Just happily watches the chaos! But will support Wolfen to the end!:: ….. unless I have a date with Katt that night.
Excuse me, I’m hear to execute a coup d’etat with my army. *points to four terrified-looking hyenas* … there were about seven hundred of them when I set out, but we stopped for dinner on the way over.
Asura you can’t kill a lawyer with hyenas.
Why? It’s not kosher?
Why not? Apparently they taste like refried zebra. … Note to self: must try refried zebra for accurate comparison.
could it be that were just seeing the beginning of the power boosts
Oh god someone prevent Wrong from seeing this!!!
Also the expressions in this page are wonderful. Greta has never had such a cute/bloodthirsty look on her face.
Greta Gravity…making it really hard since …well…the 1st time she showed up in the comic….
Hmhm, Greta looks pretty cute ein this page.
Hello there i just wanted to say that i love this comic , though i just started reading it july 30 2012 , but i strated at the begining and stayed up late to read it all that night lol. I love all the character’s concepts , but i think my favorites so far are the main Heather brown & Dr. Univerese. I’m curious as to if you went to college for comic’s or just draw create them at home for fun?
The phrase “Is she going critical?” sounds like it’s happened before to one of Dr. U’s test subjects. The question is…did the test subject survive? Dr. U doesn’t look worried, just scientifically interested.
In Panel 4 the Doctor is using his eyewear to confirm Tiger is lying – a lie detector, or can he see the reactor?
And where is Spinny going? Is this part of their game plan?
something tells me that the c-k reactor would go out with a huge boom if someone destroyed it.
Well, to reference the most recent Spidey movie (whether you liked it or not) maybe the foreign DNA began to dominate the host, if the subject was a similar sort of experiment – after all, if Dr U. funded the ray, he must be aware of its capabilities, and even if he’s not, he’ll have probably studied Spinny’s powers to know that they must be caused by the introduction of spider DNA into her own – there’s nothing synthetic or C-K about her powers (at first).
I think in Panel 4 he may just be adjusting his eyewear dramatically : P unless he has a built-in C-K sensor or something, like night-vision or infra-red.
And I think Spinny’s trying to gain a vantage point…over a woman who can control gravity *facepalm* XP or it may just be she swung out of the way and is now crawling up out of harm’s way, and noticed how handy her new limbs are : P
Personally I liked the new spiderman movie but I’m still not sure why it needed to be revamped so quickly.
there was a disagreement between Sony and the scriptwriter maybe the director of the last tree spider man films over the villain so Sony decide to scrap that script and use one the had already written up
Ironically Sam Rami wanted to use the Lizard for the fourth movie but was told not to use so monstrous a villain after Venom, so he changed it to the Vulture and Felicia Hardy – not as the Black Cat but a female ripoff of the Vulture – and when that was vetoed he quit.
Panel 4 = uh oh
Slurred speech and risus sardonicus
Poisoning with strychnine may result in a risus sardonicus.
In 2009 scientists at the University of Eastern Piedmont in Italy claimed to have identified hemlock water dropwort (Oenanthe crocata) as the plant responsible for producing the sardonic grin. This plant is the most-likely candidate for the “sardonic herb,” which was a neurotoxic plant used for the ritual killing of elderly people in pre-Roman Sardinia.
I think it’s more a case of artisticus typoicus XP
I thought someone had mistaken Dr. U for an elderly sardine
Insane theories 1
Sane theories -12
Its’ not that sane theories never work out. It’s that they’re so boring they lose points for being right.
you forgot ludicrous theories +150 because they catch the snitch
Ludicrous speed go!
Don’t you just love it when a Hero tries to bluff a super villain and it never works out? lol
In comparison to the wide-angle shot in Panel 1, Tiger’s hand and arm look almost normal-sized in Panel 3…
Best line from Greta EVER!
Greta: I will make it very hard!
“WAH!…what we gonna do over the GIR,Dr U?”
Crap!I forget the “POMF”
Am I the only one here who finds the pose spinny is in during panel 5 sexy?… Maybe I just have some weird thing for multi-armed genetically enhanced women with girl abs… hmmm…
You have learned well, O’ King! ; D
I must admit, Heather has always been attractive [other than too short of hair] but the additional arms DOES give her a lot of appeal!
ESPECIALLY as a lesbian/Yuri-girl…and talk about massages, cuddling and “stimulation” opportunities!!! (~_^)-b
There is something appealing about a girl with more than one pair of hands to tickle your fancy (pun fully intended ;P), even as a heterosexual female, I would have to agree X3
Hmmm…….. I think she is too dignified to start her own massage/escort business.
Plus, she won’t be getting much in the way of business, what with Wolfen guarding the door.
So maybe the new arms are Left Pedi and Right Pedi? I guess Bottom Lefty is still herself.
Fun fact: Though Bottom Lefty may appear to be the rogue, it’s actually Middle Righty you have to watch out for. It’s always the quiet ones…
Wish I could’ve gone to Otakon, but meh. That picture you had though, of the Mr. Webby… all I gotta say is if you get that kick starter started, I’ll pitch in. Depending on the price, I may pitch in enough for the reward to be a Mr. Webby. :3
