This is a "what-if" story (or, in the parlance of the DC Comics of my childhood, an "Imaginary Story"; I suppose today it would be called an "Elseworlds" entry) that speculates on the results of Sonya Gannon testing out her wayward "anti-aging" formula on herself. It's been (and still is) available at my website, but there've been several requests to see it posted here. So...

I'd made the decision, ever since I started the Tetsuko comic, that Tetsuko and Slade would be the only recipients (victims?) of the formula. But there are a lot of readers out there who still want to see what Sonya would look like with Tet-chan's physique. So, to satisfy those requests - and hey, because I wanted to see it too - I went ahead and created this story, "Sonya's Growing Pains".

Just keep in mind, this story is not part of the official continuity. Because of everyone in the story get shot up with this formula, then what's the point of Tetsuko herself? "When everyone's super, no one's super," as a rather popular movie of a few years ago put it.

I put the "Mature" advisory on all the pages, even the ones which don't feature any "adult" material, because I don't want someone starting to read the story and then unable to finish because of the filter being on only some of the pages.

because, yes, this is what quite a few readers would like to see: Tetsuko grow even bigger...

And so it ends!

Tet-chan has great muscles and great pubes.
TrueLeonPriest Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2013
I would like to see this in the story, but as a temporary thing. As long as Tetsuko didn't wear any makeshift clothes for that period of time.
BlackIce779 Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2012
you should give tetsuko another dose of the growth formula to see what happens ;)

This was a great story and I am happy to be able to see the mega muscular version of Sonya - Thanks Dave!

babermirza Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2009
Hahah!!! hilarious and awesome too! You're like, one of the greatest artists I've ever seen!

Will you ever make this into an actual comic by the way? Or no since most people can't accept... women with muscles bigger then men?
DavidCMatthews Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2009  Professional General Artist
If by "actual comic" you mean printed up in physical form and sold, probably not. I didn't have print publication in mind when I drew it, so I didn't make the original artwork large enough to print well.

Whether people "accept" muscular women isn't a big concern when I create my drawings and comics, for the most part. I do what I do to please myself (first of all) and the fans who've been so kind as to give me their attention and encouragement over the years.
babermirza Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2009

awesome! Tetsuko even bigger!
actionman81 Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2009
I had to wait until the end to comment. It was hard to wait. Really great premise, though I do like Sonya and Tet's breasts just the way they were- there can be too much of a good thing; but I loved seeing Sonya with muscles. :D -Omar

"I hate to admit it, but I've always been a fan of the 'alternate reality' stories DC Comics used to put out. It's always fun to imagine what would be the results of a character's history being altered by a change in one event in their lives, great or small. It's a lot like role-playing games of the last twenty years; an event of history comes out differently (Nazis win WW2, Mankind makes contact with extraterrestrial life, magic becomes real in the modern world), and what the effects it has on the player and the population in general. As for the super-sizing of Tetsuko, the old adage of 'too much of a good thing' comes to mind..."

"OK, next time we read the instruction manual before we try to put the thing together...
DavidCMatthews Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2009  Professional General Artist
Hey, you shouldn't have to "hate" to admit to a liking for the "alternate reality" tales; they can be a lot of fun!

As for "too much of a good thing", that's the same line I go along. Tetsuko is already as big as I think is practical, although another "what-if" involving a super-sized Tet-chan is a possibility...
lowdog Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2009
"Appreciate the comment on the alternate reality tales; it's that some folks want a character's history to be carved in stone. Yet, by having these 'What if...' stories, you explore aspects of this life that can lead to a new appreciation of the fictional person's role. As for Tetsuko getting super-sized, I'm in no big rush. The larger-than-life (or just about anything else) current model is a major handful as is..."

"P.S. Nice trick, slipping yourself into the last few panels. It's a slick move, intertwining the fictional and the real in the same story."

"OK, next time we read the instruction manual before we try to put the thing together...
sainters Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2009
Thanks for posting this, David!!

Loved this "what if" when I first saw it.

Naturally I enjoyed how Sonya looks after the serum AND also Tetsuko in this last page... particularly the vasularity =P
...though, as much as I like breasts, I'm not a fan of the oversized ones in this strip... enjoy the pecs better... oh well!

(Even though it's not 'new' as such.....) Great work as usual... thanks again ^-^
CheeseDogX Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2009
An amusing comic, as well as awesome. I'm going to fave just the first and last pages, though, as I think it'd probably be obnoxious to others to wade through the whole thing on my faves page when they can just come here and look at it at their leisure. Of course, I'm assuming here that people actually look at others' faves. But I do, and I don't think I'm alone.

Once again, great work on this comic. I found the cameo by yourself especially funny.
DavidCMatthews Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2009  Professional General Artist
Thank you for the kind words.

"I'm assuming here that people actually look at others' faves."

Well, I certainly do; I find a lot of interesting artists and others that way. But that's an interesting question; I may ask that in an upcoming journal.
CheeseDogX Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2009
Yeah, that's why I check other's faves, too.

Awesome history X3
Red-Lamia Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Wow! What an awesome transformation sequence! I love how you paitiently kept the same loving level of detail with the shading, form and lines on each panel. You didn't skimp on anything that's for sure.
Al-Ocramed Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2009
You know, I hope you do another "what if", where the serum makes Tetsuko out of control emotionally (extremes anger, extreme rage, etc.).

Like the details of the skin texture. Perhaps, this is a future power-up, for extreme circumstances?

Andy, good all around on a funny story! :)
Tyson87 Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2009
Great work, she looks more hot.
Lurker-Below Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2009
Awesome story! Love her vascularity and skin tone. It looks so realistic. Makes me want to touch her ... head now missing ... last thing I hear is "Oops, didn't mean to slap him so hard. Who was he...." :floating:
SkyJaguar-TFproject Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2009
That's so funny. I love the way you encorporated yourself into the comic. I wish I could interact with my original characters that way.
Strangerataru Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2009  Hobbyist Writer
And I think everyone is happy now: Sonya and Tet-chan fans! Thanks for putting this classic on here, man!
DavidCMatthews Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2009  Professional General Artist
Sonya fans happy, Tetsuko fans happy, everybody happy but Zathras... but Zathras never happy. Zathras happy once, had friend once but wheels fell off... very sad...

(apologies to J. Michael Straczynski)
Uglymuffintop Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2009
It's so great to see this "what-if" scenario again in all its glory. You really did justice on Sonya's progression, and the interactions between not only the characters but with you as well adds a nice depth and grandeur to the mix.

Well, as Dave said above: "I'd made the decision, ever since I started the Tetsuko comic, that Tetsuko and Slade would be the only recipients (victims?) of the formula."

He SHOULD put her as this size in the upcomming chain of events :love: :D :love: :D
