Kaiju runnin’ wild up in this piece! After some brief remedial Japanese lessons, we get right into Whatcha Been Readin’ with The God-Child and The Forgotten Order. Steve also lets us know just what Ursula Vernon’s been up to since wrapping up Digger before wedelve into our second Book Club featuring that very comic! Go deep beneath the surface to find the still-beating heart of the Digital Strips… then stab that blackened pustule until you can’t lift your arms. Also, listen after the wrap-up for more Rambletron, including where that goat on a rock thing came from.
It’s time to test the bounds of how many comics we will actually read for a review! Luckily, John Allison’s Bad Machinery ends up on the positive end of that spectrum; make sure you check out the various cases on offer, highly recommended. We also talk about Hamlet’s Danish, Plox, and how out-of-touch Steve is. That’s ALWAYS fun!
Midshow music is “Sunburst” by Tobu & Itro.
No use escaping, you’re in here with ME now! While you’re here, why not listen to Jason muse about The Conjurers, then hear Steve geek out about D20 Monkey. If you haven’t tapped by then, you’ll absolutely mark out for our review of the anime action-infused Vibe. Now TAP! TAAAAAAAAAAP!
Jason muses on the possibilities of a Mrs. Doubtfire sequel and massive poop travel emergencies, and Steve admits his shame publicly while giving Jason a new nickname. They also join forces to pick apart Fowl Language and The Only Living Boy. We’ve only been at this for seven years but already we’re getting hot flashes.
Before we go on that magic carpet ride, we groove to the beauty of Blindsprings and the whimsy of Tenko King. After a bit of news and midshow trippiness, it’s time to blaze up, take a soak and let your mind go as we attempt to make sense of the drug-addled mind warp that is Body World. Pass it over!
Midshow trippiness supplemented by “Come On” by ZOE.LEELA of the album Digital Guilt.
Steve changes the rules, and so Jason is shamed. Due to this last minute power grab, Steve read another comic in addition to our Book Club pick. Broommates is his OTHER comic, second only to our feature, a new Book Club! This time around we’re reading Digger, and you’re encouraged to read along, as we won’t be summarizing the comic like we have in the past. Read up and tune in!
The midshow music is “Glim” by Auquid.
This week, Jason played a card game he thinks looks like a webcomic (Sentinels Of The Multiverse) while Steve read an actual webcomic (Oh Hell). They then review the adorable stranger danger in Bird-Boy. Clip those wings and stick around for the fun!
The guys think you should watch more cartoons, like Archer, Bob’s Burgers, and Rick and Morty. They also want you to read more webcomics! To get you started, check out My Milktoof, Stand Still, Stay Silent, and Super Mario Bros. 2. Steve also brings Kill Six Billion Demons to the Horizons table, while Jason presents The Outrunners. Sit down and join them, won’t you?
The midshow break features “Bande de Degeneres” by Kognitif.
Jason hangs out with Robbie and Bobbie, while Steve stays up with Sleep Deprivation Ninja. They then join forces to try and figure out just what the heck is going on in the time-traveling tale, Saint For Rent. If your nose starts to bleed, you have our permission to pause the podcast and find your constant.
Steve checks out Fowl Language, Jason comes up with excuses, and together they check in on the relatively new comics, Solstoria and Camp Weedonwantcha. Also, the lack of responsive design representation in the webcomics community has Jason climbing the walls. Adapt or die!
Midshow music: “Street Fighter or Streetest Fighter?” by BONKERS
