Welcome to the world of Shattered Starlight, where magical girls might just save your life when they’re not busy brewing a mean cup of coffee or enjoying some all-night poutine with their cute, cantankerous rabbit friend. It’s a story by Nicole Chartrand where anything can happen, but usually doesn’t. Listen to our review to see why that’s not a bad thing.
David Gallaher is adding a new achievement to his list with his work on Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, Steve is hyped about the Midnight Radio Kickstarter supporting a new hardcover collection of comics, and Jason catches us up on his criticism of Pepper and Carrot, which has taken a turn NO one saw coming!
It’s Eisner time and Webtoon is claiming more than half the spots for their growing platform! We have quick thoughts on all the nominees (in addition to the intro that The Average Joe already gave us), including:
After that quick update, it’s time to travel to the wonderful world of witches with Pepper and Carrot by David Revoy, where we learn to love our family despite our desire to just have some danged fun with some danged magic.
Sometimes, the boy just can’t bring himself to tell the girl how he feels. And then, before he can tell her, she decides to replace her human body with a synthetic one and move back to Earth. It’s a tale as old as time when we review Heartwired by Rod and Leanne Hannah.
Not content to call it quits at the midpoint last week, the guys decided to review the rest of Seed (or what was there at the time of recording, big doins in the newest update already!). Make Turry happy and listen to our thoughts so we all get out of this relatively unscathed. Please?
Jason wasn’t fair to Dave Mercier and hop.dude, so he offers his apology along with a promise to read more and give his thoughts. He also noted to The Last Halloween creator Abby Howard how uncomfortable a recent update made him (which she appreciated). Finally, the guys take a look at Said Polat’s Seed, a comic about the problems that come with superintelligent AI that escape their confines and harass good, decent folk like you and me.
Sometimes, you just wanna curl up with a good story about a boy who is also a chosen one. And that’s what (we think) we have here, with a look at the first two-ish chapters of Brian Shearer’s William the Last. Read up, we’ll probably return to this one sooner than later.
Webcomics live so long as we, the fans (and erstwhile creators) share them with others and grow the community. To that end, Jason showed someone Hop Dude and they … appreciated it? And now he has a new one to share with The Square Comics, home of the sick burn and … well, not much else. But it does that one thing really, really, scorchingly well.
In celebration of Mar10 (Mario Day!), we took a look at the Mario-like hop.dude by Dave Mercier. It’s … weird, and subversive, with characters you know and love from the world of Nintendo, but who you’ve never actually truly met. There’s no real way to describe this comic, so go view it on Instagram and judge for yourself.
