    Somebody reported Mega Matt missing? *lol*

    Aww… Castro’s gone Vegan…no more orphans for him!

    • Holaved

      I agree- THAT surprises me. :P
      (still awesome, though.)
      I wonder what Tangerine and/or Matt’s brothers have to say about Matt’s disappearance? Also- Starbucks? I recall Castro’s appearance, and Matt’s disappearance, but…Starbucks??

        The new generation of Society of Heroes are addicted to coffee.

        And I guess the lights in the space are those space ships seen at the end of the The Doctor and The Doctor chapter?

          See below for the answers. Somebody did figure out all the references…

    Two thoughts:

    1.) I think Matt’s brothers were both happy to see him gone (see also the high-five after he disappeared with Swifty). It’s odd that his father hasn’t asked even in his now overly sensitive state.

    2.) Curious why Cap holds onto that one last tuft of hair…bald would work well, at least as he’s been drawn.

    • Tyler Heasley

      2) With how miserable his life is right now, he probably doesn’t want to be confused with John Locke.

        The tuft of hair is cool!

        • Bryan

          I guess I was thinking about how someone said he looked like Bruce Willis, lol

  3. Meander

    Giant bags of money would ease the sting somewhat, yes.

      A bit, yeah. One would think. And yet…

  4. Sam

    I love the ref. to Mega Matt missing, thanks for giving us M.M. fans a little something guys.
    Now if we just have him back that would awesome.
    Love the artwork as always.

      Gotta throw the Mega Matt fans a bone now and again. My thinking exactly. I haven’t forgotten!

  5. Scott

    Not going for bonus points but:
    1. The Society of Heroes constantly drink Starbucks and then toss their coffee cups making a mess before every job.
    2. Mega Matt went back in time with time-skipping Swifty. I imagine Tangerine’s not asked because he doesn’t even know.
    3. “Lights in space” refers to the impending alien attack.
    4. “Castro turns vegan” refers to how Dr. Rocket was hanging out with Castro eating orphans. Don’t forget to update his bio, Brock!

      Ding ding ding! Nice work.

      • Puck

        A-HEM! The Society of Heroes drinks Apollo Coffee!

  6. Tyler Heasley

    Next strip: Jerry gets out of the shower and Spy Gal says, “Hey, what’s our last name again?”

    • Bryan


      Seriously, more ammo for the “How could SG be so stupid?” theory.

      • Lewis

        Honestly in a world rife with superheroes and secret identities it’s entirely possible that some laws and ceremonies are willing to allow the use of the nom de guerre instead of the name on your birth certificate, as long as the taxes are clear and fully paid (it would be hilarious to me if it was the IRS that revealed Jerry’s real name). Besides I can see Spy Gal wanting to keep her own name anyway, it just seems in-character for her.

    • Brock Heasley

      The last name issue WILL be addressed. Spy Gal isn’t that stupid, I promise.

      • JE Draft

        Still pretty stupid. And no class at all. No matter how justifiably angry and disappointed she was in CS, a Vegas wedding t Jerry less than an hour after breaking her engagement with Wilbur puts her squarely in the Jerry Springer zone.

  7. Tyler Heasley

    Honestly, all I want to see is a Halloween strip where Vanessa says, “Hey, I think you should dress up as Dr. Klein this year. You’d make a good…HOLY–!!

    “Giant bags of money.” :-)

      I don’t think I want to know why you’re smile, Greg.

  9. Javier

    Wasn’t it Apollo’s instead of Starbucks since that was your tribute to Battlestar Galactica?

    Also, I wouldn’t mind if CS left and used his money to start a new life.

    • Brock Heasley
      Brock Heasley

      Too true. Good memory on the Apollo’s thing. I figure, in the SF universe, there are lots of coffee chains named after Battlestar Galatica characters.

  10. hey

    Say, are you aware that you basically named the show “Papa Nazi”.

    • Brock Heasley
      Brock Heasley

      That was not lost on me, but the lack of the space is intentional. You’re meant to think “nazi.”

    Ask Marc to show you the “Adama’s Coffee” logo sometime. :)
