Comic description

The adventures of Charleston Charge and Subject M as they face off against boredom, various threats, and facets of pop culture.

Mike Podgor has been creating comics and other fictions since his motor skills developed enough for him to do so, and he has been issuing them for public consumption since 2001. He specializes in science fiction and fantasy, and even his works that should be more mundane have more than a hint of the paranormal about them. Mike typically writes short stories and creates comics, but screenwriting is not out of his wheelhouse. Basically, anything requiring deft character work or world building is right up his alley.

So now we know why M is in Zeitgeist, and where he got the giant bag of money shown in this strip. I'm sure you're pleased as punch and those questions were creating a burning whole within your mind. Anyway, keep reading both comics to find out what happens next!

Also, in relation to today's comic, you may see a bunch of names that you recognize. Here's a quick guide because I can't resist:

The Sirius Cybernetics Corporation is from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
Stark is a reference to Tony Stark, while Wayne is Bruce Wayne. Both have also appeared in Zeitgeist, refusing to give M any money.
McDuck is, of course, Scrooge McDuck. This is a tax write-off for him.
Brachiosaur is... wait, who is Brachiosaur? You'll have to read this story by fellow Fictospherean Randall Malus to find out.

If your favorite wealth-monger was not included, then I hate them forever. Or I couldn't think of any that were non-evil, and the evil ones probably have their own way of doing things.

We started this storyline with a cameo from Autumn Bay's Doctor Deacon, and we're ending it with cameos from Dory H's Poharex and Eperok. If you like dinosaurs, and if you're reading any of my stuff you probably do, you'll enjoy the high adventure of Poharex. There's some wrap up stuff in the next comic, and then it's on to the brave new future.

If you read Zeitgeist, you know that I'm having computer issues. The PC I would usually do my comics on decided that it did not like Windows 10. During the entire installation process, it kept overheating. Once the dang thing was installed, it would last about half an hour before shutting itself down. I uninstalled it and hoped for the best, but yesterday that old PC decided that things inside were going to start popping and smoking. Needless to say, that computer is not being used any longer. I have a Mac from school that I can use for a while, but all the old files are locked away until I get a usable PC. If you’d like to help me cover the cost of a new PC so I can once again access all of my files and continue working on things, then support me on Patreon or just buy something from me. I do writing and art commissions and there’s some merchandise if you want it.

And just a reminder that you can read the latest comic at the Fictosphere!

I'd like to thank Otty Justason, Ethan Kocak, Andy Purviance, and Dory H for helping make this particular comic a lot more visually appealing. If there's anything you don't like, it's my fault.

Like the shaggy edges on not-Wolverine's silhouette, which I attribute to body hair, the rips and tears his non-regenerating costumes always acquire, or perhaps a combination of the two.
