We all know how much we’re dragging our feet here but real life has a problem of making this life impossible sometimes. To help out Steve and Jason have another review but this time it heralds back to the good old days of 3 comics. Each of these three are quite different and we even get some disagreement on taste.

In this episode we talk about:

  • Awkward Zombie by Katharine Chandler Tiedrich XIV
  • The Non-Adventures of Wonderella by Justin Pierce
  • The Nineteenth Century Industrialist by Renee Katz

    1. Sorry for the late comment, but I just got a chance to listen to this episode now. I have to take issue with what one of the reviewers (sorry, couldn’t tell who it was) said about Wonderella being too much like a guy or not being like a real woman character because she was too “reckless” or something. That’s actually one of the traits that I enjoy so much about Wonderella — that she’s like the female equivalent of that sort of “entertaining oaf” character, like Homer Simpson or like so many male webcomic protagonists who are self-centered jackasses and idiots. For some reason you never see female characters like that; maybe because creators think that women are all supposed to be sensitive and empathic, or level-headed and responsible? Anyway, just speaking for myself (a chick), it’s fun and kind of refreshing to see a character like Wonderella being as big of a jerk as the guys.
