Digital Strips Podcast 286 – Review – Plume

Let’s be mature here, no Brokeback Mountain jokes, OK?

I love cowboy. I love them like I love chocolate. Meaning while I love them a lot on their own, I love them more when they are in things.

For example, Cowboy Bebop and Firefly are awesome because they put cowboys in space. Blazing Saddles and City Slickers are great because the take comedy and add cowboy.

Today’s comic, Plume, does just that. Take something good – supernatural adventure – and pour in the cowboy. It can’t lose.

Just how much it doesn’t lose by, however, is up to debate and therefore the topic of today’s show. We talk about what we like, what we didn’t and all those other things that you expect from an episode of Digital Strips. In addition, Jason has a special lead on a place where – according to his sources – naked ladies dance (spoiler warning: it’s in France).

  1. I greatly agree with your dislike of the “it’s a teaser in the beginning!” trope. It’s been MASSIVELY overdone in episodic television. Personally I blame Pulp Fiction for starting it.

  2. Glad to know I’m not alone. I see it so often some times I think I’m the only who realizes how annoying it is.

  3. That thing is sometimes called an “Ice Monster Prologue”. If your action adventure story starts with a boring scene of character development, it’s handy to slip one of these in to establish the overall tone of the story.

    This image: http://plumecomic.com/wp-content/webcomic/plume/01001.jpg Seems to capture the feel of the story a lot better than this one: http://plumecomic.com/wp-content/webcomic/plume/01010.jpg

    And that’s a vital consideration when you only have fifteen seconds to not leave and never return…
