It’s 2017 and awards shows feel outdated when even the highest office in the land is won illegitimately. So the guys are just hosting a round-up of all the great stuff they looked at in 2016. Some favorites are named, some hang-ups are shared, and you should write down every comic they mention as one to check out if you haven’t already. The 2016 Year In Review show is here!
We’re starting off our 2017 with a bunch of malarky and cheeky fun. How about we give you a bit of each with 1,111 Animals, Highgreen Dawn, and War and Peas? Also, listen as Jason learns something about potatoes. Should be a great year!
It’s the last show before Christmas, and we have more gifts for you! Chris Grine is celebrating Wicked Crispy getting a book deal, and Harry Potter has never been more succinct, or hilarious. Also, the guys take a deeper dive on Rising Sand, one of the most gorgeous comics to ever grace a computer screen.
The guys return to days gone by and dedicate the entire episode to a review of a single webcomic! They turn their critical eyes towards Riana Dorsey’s Suihira, a tale about family, beliefs, and dedication in the face of adversity. Also, a killer whale that is the deity embodiment of water. Enjoy!
Though the guys have seen a lot of the slice-of-life, art student journal comics lately, Electric Bunny Comics is yet another fun one. Ascension, however, is not fun, but could be something special someday. Steve also brings Grassblades to the conversation, tropes and all. Finally, Jason has an idea that will return us to old-school Digital Strips next week. Listen in for the details and find out how you can join the experience! (Also, read Suihira.)
Have you seen Gone in 60 Seconds? Because from the way Steve describes it, this film sounds like a joyful romp! Other things you should check out: the comic Thief of Tales by Guillaume Bonnet, an Evan Dahm Kickstarter involving classic literature, and a new comic from Anne Szabla.
Thanks to the frights in the comic, Behind You, Jason relives his crippling fear of the dark and what lurks in the shadows. Steve, on the other hand, enjoys the bright, gamemaker’s frivolity in The Meatly. Also, Travis Hanson has a Kickstarter that might finally pop Steve’s crowdfunding cherry.
Jason had a bad experience doing characters on a podcast. Sorry, you’ll have to settle for the webcomics that Steve found instead, like She-Dwarf and Post-It note art from instachaaz. Don’t worry, Jason will be back to his old self soon, and might even mention a comic that’s not Binwin’s Minions to boot!
