Sob Sister!

Sob Sister is obviously one of those people who thrives on misery. But at least she gets a super power out of it. The downside is that her version of Kryptonite is being happy. Give her a big box of chocolates or a passionate kiss…and she feels weak. A Sex and the City marathon renders her utterly helpless. And that’s so sad…I suddenly feel like wearing a cape and thwarting crime!

By the way, if this comic looks familiar then it’s probably because I’m recycling a few comics as I get up to speed doing three comics a week on GoComics. But a lot of the old-timers are getting a face lift–new color and revised dialogue. Hopefully, they’ll be even better the second time around.

  1. lol Funny…but the first time they spell her name, it’s “Cyndi”. The second time it’s spelled “Cindy”. lol. Sorry, I can be a bit of a grammar freak. This is pretty funny though!

  2. It’s grammar (and typo) freaks like you that keep me honest, Heidi. Thanks for letting me know about the mistake. I just corrected it and uploaded the new version. I originally spelled the character’s name “Cyndy”, but later decided to switch to “Cyndi.” I forgot to make the change to her name in the second caption. And, yes, I’m glad you liked Sob Sister. She makes me happy too–which is probably why I don’t have any super powers. –John
