DS 533: Surprise! Love, The Internet

Mario is being mean to Yoshi

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.

Cut Man from the Mega Man series published by Capcom

It’s possible that The Abominable Charles Christopher, an outstanding, quiet look at the animal world by Karl Kerschl, is back and that’s all Steve needs to believe in good things again. The guys also delve into the magical world of Judy Jong’s Cut Time, where we follow the adventures of Rel, Sol, and Nal. It’s much more exciting than it sounds, trust us.

What fun and danger have Callie, Declan, and the rest of the gang gotten into since last time? We’re telling you explicitly that in this episode, but you really should check it out for yourself, too.

We’re getting rolling in the new year with a longer look at a comic we first discovered last year, The 3 Pilgrims by Trevor Downs. It’s very reserved and sparse in its presentation, but the mystery and adventure it presents are well worth joining the three pilgrims on their journey.
