After Steve was getting fed up with a certain journal comic (Eisner-winning, even!), Jason decided to find something he would enjoy a bit more. Enter My Giant Nerd Boyfriend. Follow along with Fishball and Boyfriend as they navigate life together, one of them being small, and one of them being ridiculously large. Now available on YouTube as well!
After the guys reminisce about podcast days gone by with the John Oliver-laden episodes of The Bugle (the most special segment of which can be found here), they take a look at the precocious treat that is Phoebe and Her Unicorn by Dana Simpson. It’s vibes are all-ages and Calvin and Hobbes-inspired, with enough of an identity to tell a story unique to Phoebe and her unicorn, Marigold Heavenly Nostrils.

Ever want to learn more about nature and the animals it contains, but were afraid it wouldn’t be funny enough? Bird and Moon by Rosemary Mosco has you covered, with enough animal facts to fill an Illustrated Wildlife Treasury and dry humor that would make even the stiffest Brit chuckle.
While Steve is out, Jason takes the opportunity to catch up with friend of the show and amazing creator of all things … well, all things, David Gallaher. Hear David talk about his work on The Only Living Boy, the follow-up, The Only Living Girl, his contribution to the upcoming Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, and why many people are wrong about who the best Green Lantern of all time is.
Steve and his family are enjoying Noelle Stevenson’s She-Ra and the Princesses of Power and they think you should, too! Meanwhile, Jason brings a comic unlike most others you’ve read before, where love is just around the corner and even the fearsome Duke of Hell is getting into the act. Listen to the guys review Love Advice from the Great Duke of Hell and then go read that wonderful, weird comic for yourself.
Also, as Steve notes in the podcast outro, you should read Terence’s posts here on the site for some great webcomics insight. Case in point, his article about this here comic is yet another take on this great oddity.
