Comic for Friday, Sep 21, 2018

This is not a criticism of the new Spider-Man game! It would be annoying as heck having to leave your foes in easily accessible places, and I really like the game in general.

In fact, I like it so much, here's some rad tips:

  1. You can turn off quick time events in the accessibility settings and all the cut scenes will just play out like cut scenes. It is glorious.

  2. You can also make those puzzle mini-games instantly skippable via the accessibility settings, and as far as I can tell, you still get XP for them.

  3. You can turn off J Jonah Jamesons's podcast as well. Take THAT, JJJ!

  4. If you time your web swings so you only gain a little elevation, you can build up some serious speed. I think this is easiest to do while low to the ground.

  5. The "Leap Off" combat move is super good for combos and avoiding damage, and as I discovered, it's possible to miss that it's a thing in the initial tutorial and play through the whole story without using it me what's wrong with you me?!


I actually have a logical explanation for Grace's anatomy in this comic, given that she has six arms, but it doesn't hold up to scrutiny.

It makes sense that she would have additional musculature to support the use of those extra arms. What makes less sense is that she would wind up needing three bras (or however that would work). she does not require additional fatty tissue on top of the additional muscles.

So I have an excuse but sounds pretty good, and I'm sure would be enough for plenty of people, but it doesn't really hold up to scrutiny. I'm comfortable admitting that.
