After the guys determine who REALLY loves their grandmother, it’s off to webcomics! Nothing Special goes against it’s title, I’m The Bird Guy reminds us that Instagram isn’t a great comics platform, Protanopia shows promise, and the terrific tag-team of Ehud and Yael are back with some more short story comic goodness.
After a bit of nonsense about bad impersonations versus good impersonations, the guys take a look at two fun fantasy webcomics. First up is Dungeon Construction Co., brought to us by some familiar faces, and featuring a dissection of those fantasy gaming tropes we all know and love. Secondly, Steve brings an incredibly horny monster comic to the show with Frankenstein Superstar. If you’ve ever asked yourself just how much sex the iconic horror staple has, you’ll love this comic!
Jason brings the filthy post-apocalyptic comic strip homage, Weapon Brown, along with a mention of Terence’s latest article about Andrew Gregoire and his battle with anxiety. Steve keeps it light and funny, with the frivolity of Good Bear Comics and the childish period drama, Bloodlust and Bonnets.
Give me a hell yeah if you think adulting is hard! HELL YEAH! What’s not hard is looking at some great comics this episode, like Test and Stuck at 32. Steve even managed to find a podcast (called World Walkers) featuring the talents of many webcomics creators that you should give a listen to.
We’ve got the news you can use, and the comics you should view! Superfogeys will be returning soon and David McGuire wants to help creators avoid getting ripped off. Also, Enforcemen is a great start to a story and Lil’ Donnie is a comedic take on a presidency that is getting harder and harder to top in terms of punchlines. Plus, if you use Feedly to sort and view your feeds online, there are some great new tools to help you stay organized (not a sponsored ad).
For the second week of our look at the nominees for the Eisners, the guys check out the five comics nominated for Best Digital Comic: Bandette, Edison Rex, Helm, On a Sunbeam, and Universe!. There’s something old (previously featured), something new, and something that can only be described as fake news that Steve is spreading about one of the four-peat nominees.
Unfortunately for you, Jason is a web designer in his day job and so he has some opinions on the recent redesign Adam Huber applied to Bug Martini. Also, The Eisners are once again nearly upon us, so the guys take a look at the nominees for Best Webcomic: Bird Boy, Deja Brew, Jaeger, The Middle Age, and On Beauty.
We all know how Steve feels about the sultry soul of Adele, so let’s relax and listen to some tunes on the old glass harmonica like we used to back in the day. Also, Tapas made a lot of people angry and confused last week with their TOS changes, so the guys give their two cents on that topic. Finally, Steve brings BFGFS to the table and Jason marvels at its cuteness while wondering if he can take another cute journal comic.
