DS 590: Quest, Quest, Quest … It Is The Best

When several characters take center stage in a comic, how do you know which one is the focus? Look to the fanart, says Jason, webcomics supergenius. That advice might help when reading Star Prichard’s Castoff, a tale about journeys, mysteries, and the mysterious journey that our three intrepid adventurers undertake. It’s one that’s worth taking, so listen to our review and get prepared for what’s ahead.

DS 589: It’s Not Delivery, It’s Tovio

He’s Toivo, he’s very insecure about his position in life, and he’s also a wildly powerful wizard. What could go wrong? The answer is a lot, just so much wrongness, and those stories are contained in Kay Rossbach’s Ingress Adventuring Company. Hear our gushing good words about this outstanding comic and then go read the whole thing for yourself!

DS 588: Doin’ the Tendi Swap

It’s not every day that a cute alien girl crash lands in your backyard and changes your life, possibly for good, but Kade certainly treats it that way in Pookie Senpai’s Down to Earth. Steve is convinced this comic is plotted like a sitcom, explaining why he’s not a huge fan and Jason doesn’t buy that he never set foot in a Hot Topic. Stay up late, go to the store, and listen to our review! Also, shout out to Clay Yount for all of his stellar comics work over the years.

DS 587: The Future, Conan?

Sure, we looked at this comic back in episode 562, but maybe that was actually another version of us and this is brand new? We’re back with Shen’s (and Megan McKay’s and Dave Mercier’s) Live With Yourself! and it’s just as fun and insane as we (or our other selves) remembered. Jason really enjoyed getting to know all the characters that Steve had already made friends with months ago. Join them and make these loveable weirdos your friends, too!

DS 586: The Grape Escape

We’re diving back into the fanciful and fun world of fruit stacking competitions with Sam Kim’s Plum!

DS 585: The Climax is a Bike Race

There’s no feeling like flying down a steep hill at high speeds on your sweet bike. It’s even better when you literally can’t lose a race or look anything other than a super rad dude. That’s the story of Wind Breaker, which follows a mysterious guy with a beat-up bike and the students and other figures that surround him. Hear our voyeuristic views on this exciting world and then catch the virus of competition and read it for yourself.

DS 584: Knee High To A Pooch You Screwed

Ever think you could get a bunch of friends together and bounce around the galaxy, having adventures and maybe saving a life or two? Temerity by Jemma Young and Chad Hardin is a Guardians of the Galaxy-like romp that turns zeroes into heroes, with a fantasy bend to the sci-fi that lends to a flavor all its own. See what we thought about this fast-paced adventure and then get on the train early with us!

DS 583: Controlled Acceleration

Welcome to the wasteland! It’s terrible! Seriously, don’t go. If you’re not terribly lucky or disfigured in some way, you’re doomed. But Nuclearpasta’s Ten Earth Shattering Blows makes it seem like so much darn fun, you’ll want to join the party and ride a lizard to almost-certain doom. Hear us gush about the ridiculous ride this comic takes you on and then join in yourself!

DS 582: Now You’re Just Making Flesh Golems

Brave the Spiderforest with us once again to discover a tropey tale of daring do and daring don’ts. James Nelson’s Monster Lands follows a set of heroes, most of whom are just barely scraping by in that category. But when the rest of the world sucks so much, how else is a good-hearted person/elf/dwarf/whatever supposed to make a living?
