Sydney’s reaction here is because her Trope Savvy brain is starting to realize the potential of the Atmorb<sup>TM</sup>. There’s still a shitload to learn about it. Can it create just gasses? Can it create any element on the periodic table? Can it create isotopes? It seems to be able to create a mix of gasses, because presumably when she’s used it for life support, it output an Earth Atmosphere mix; roughly 78% nitrogen, 20% oxygen, 2% other stuff.

Even if it can only create… I almost typed in “Noble Gasses” then decided to double check, and realized that Nitrogen is not, in fact, a noble gas. It is extremely nonreactive though. I’d always assumed it was noble because of that. Apparently it’s just an “Other Nonmetal.” Honestly, the periodic table really tweaks my OCD. The column of Noble Gasses is nice, and next to it is the Halogens, but then there’s Hydrogen, which is an Other Nonmetal, but it’s hanging out way over on the other side of the chart from the regular wedge of Other Nonmetals. Next to that is sort of a diagonal line of Metalloids, but part of it is diagonal, and part of it is down one then over one, like a Bishop and Knight were taking turns leaving tracks for hunters to follow. If Aluminum and Polonium were Metalloids, it’d be a lot cleaner, but it’s like God got distracted halfway through organizing it. (Here’s a pic of the table so you don’t have to google it.)

I changed Sydney’s exclamation like six times while I was drawing the page. It started off as “Holy fuck tunnels” but while that’s about as funny sounding to me as the other things I came up with, I started to think that maybe it’s slightly too rude? Like, Sydney’s cursing is intended to be amusing, improbable and slightly non-sequitur, but “fuck tunnel” kind of sounds like something a dude would call a chick in a porno while he’s slapping her face. I dunno, I probably over thought it. But then, “fuck bubbles” sounds potentially a lot grosser, like, if you think about it too hard, and that makes it slightly funnier to me.

The August Vote Incentive is still up! As usual, the new one is technically finished, but I don’t have a clothed version yet. I should have it up with the Monday comic.

I’m a big fan of John Byrne’s run on “The Sensational She Hulk” and the imminent show looks very Sensational influenced. Therefore, I was inspired to draw some buff (pun intended) She Hulk, and threw in Red She Hulk for fun. Also, a wild Sydney for scale.
