DS 538: Chibi On The Bottom

The margarita hurricane from Margaritaville restaurant in Myrtle Beach, SC

Sometimes, the boy just can’t bring himself to tell the girl how he feels. And then, before he can tell her, she decides to replace her human body with a synthetic one and move back to Earth. It’s a tale as old as time when we review Heartwired by Rod and Leanne Hannah.

DS 537: Pittering Into Perpetuosity

T-1000 robot from Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Not content to call it quits at the midpoint last week, the guys decided to review the rest of Seed (or what was there at the time of recording, big doins in the newest update already!). Make Turry happy and listen to our thoughts so we all get out of this relatively unscathed. Please?

DS 536: Frightening Future Fun for Fatties

Jason wasn’t fair to Dave Mercier and hop.dude, so he offers his apology along with a promise to read more and give his thoughts. He also noted to The Last Halloween creator Abby Howard how uncomfortable a recent update made him (which she appreciated). Finally, the guys take a look at Said Polat’s Seed, a comic about the problems that come with superintelligent AI that escape their confines and harass good, decent folk like you and me.

DS 535: The Second-To-Last William

Sometimes, you just wanna curl up with a good story about a boy who is also a chosen one. And that’s what (we think) we have here, with a look at the first two-ish chapters of Brian Shearer’s William the Last. Read up, we’ll probably return to this one sooner than later.

DS 534: Burns So Good

Montgomery Burns from The Simpsons lies sick in the hospital, attended by his manservant, Smithers

Webcomics live so long as we, the fans (and erstwhile creators) share them with others and grow the community. To that end, Jason showed someone Hop Dude and they … appreciated it? And now he has a new one to share with The Square Comics, home of the sick burn and … well, not much else. But it does that one thing really, really, scorchingly well.

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.

DS 532: Running To The Firelight

We’re always on the lookout for our next favorite webcomic, so we took a look at a couple new ones in service to that end. Read along with us on the early pages of The Firelight Isle and Kamikaze, and see if they become your new favorites.

Baby in swashbuckler bib

DS 530: Of The Woods, Which Are Odd

After Steve teases Jason with The Automan’s Daughter, a great webcomic that is also on hiatus, it’s time to venture back into Oddity Woods, to discover what other fun and sinister creatures await us in this cheerfully tragic story. Don’t miss this one!

DS 529: Honey, You’re Scaring The Kids

This week, we begin our look at Oddity Woods, a cute, creepy comic that harkens back to the best parts of comics like Broodhollow and The Last Halloween in giving us quirky, fun characters and pants-wettingly scary creatures with a story that you’re sure to root for. The second part of our review will post next week. Enjoy!
