How to Recast a Superhero

This comic was written before the announcement that both Captain America and Thor were being replaced in the comics. It makes me look prescient, but really, if it hadn't been them now it would have been some other super hero within the next year. I just had lucky timing.

As always, thanks for using my Amazon Affiliate links (USUKCanada).

I love the insinuation that the knifeketeer has done so much stabbing he developed carpal tunnel... That IS where you were going? Just a stab in the dark...

And Jenkins/Macramayhem is looking like his old self. All is well.

"He finally met a foe he could not stab, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome."

I'd like to believe he tried.

God panel two had me laughing so hard.

I would guess that it was another repetitive wrist action that was the cause...

Who posed for the new character?

Obviously, I don't think we should dissect this one too much. That's not a jab at Meyer; I just think it will open up old wounds.

This is my second favorite superhero strip ever :D
(It's virtually impossible to make me laugh harder than I did at Omnipresent Man's origin story)

I need more Knifeketeer in my life. Every panel is gold, every time. Also, have I mentioned how much I love your super heroes/villains in general, Scott?

Because I love them. A lot.

I quit Newspaper Spider-Man months ago, and really appreciate being able to get a much more entertaining superhero fix here.

Macramayhem has a better way with dialogue than Jenkins. "Except you're not" was such a good followup line, and he kept it up.
