For those of you who may have been wondering why he hasn't been as floaty as usual, there you have it.

Aww, I feel bad for the poor guy.
And with a bone-jarring thud, another incorrect assumption hits the ground. Ahhh, the delicate, savory flavor of crow. Or possibly a magnificent collection of foot blisters.
"Flying with Spiders" actually sounds kind of scary in its own context.

@GroovyKinda: June's a little wrapped up in her own bruised ego at the moment to consider that, but at least she isn't wailing on him for not having wings. Even for her, that would be too mean.

@Delta-v: Plenty of crow to bake a nice big pie.

@SunScales: And it makes as much sense in context as flying on a vacuum. Nonsense is the best kind of sense!
@GroovyKinda: Yeah, those last two panels really make me feel bad for him. I'd say "grow a backbone", but it's not that easy when she's that much more physically capable, and from past experience, more than willing to use it.

@Hjels: For all he knows, his healing powers may not be working at full capacity either. Getting maced could really hurt him right now.
I love Sonny's awkward clamber (or is that the furthest he could get?)in the first panel and it got me thinking. Do you use a poseable model or photos? Because his leg looked like it would connect properly to his body, and the proportions looked real. I've been told that's hard to do when only a part of the figure is showing.

@Delta-v: First of all, I'm glad you liked that shot! It was fun to draw. Second, while I do use a variety of references, the real trick to getting a pose like that to work is to draw the whole pose. The vacuum covers up part of it, but in the pencil draft, you could see the position of his other leg and torso, which makes it easier to be sure his limbs connect to his body. I do the same thing with shots where some of the body is obscured by the panel frame.
@melaredblu: I think I heard that once, because your explanation rings a faint bell. Either that or it makes so much sense that my memory is just trying to save face.
