Episode 369: Upgrading The Futon (Review feat. Albert the Alien)

Justin Bieber in skinny jeansEver feel like a stranger in a strange land? Well then you’ve come to the right place, the perfect destination for strange things! It’d odd that Jason has checked out a comic about a cat cabbie (catbie?) titled Galacticat, and it’s straight-up bizarre that Steve picked something easily pronounceable in Dungeon Grind. For our review, we settle in alongside new friends and mysterious circumstances with Albert the Alien. Come on in! All are welcome here.

The midshow break features a chat about Jason’s experiment with skinny jeans and music by Out of Limits.

Episode 368: So Charismatic, He Punches Lions In The Face (Review feat. Hominids)

The Rock is The Tooth FairyThe question this podcast tries to answer: What is the greatest bad movie starring The Rock? Make your voices known! While we mull that one over, we also briefly discuss Intelligent Life and Krig Rwar (yes, Steve is forever banned from saying comic titles on this podcast) and then get into some tribal fighting with Hominids. Pick your side wisely (hint: one has constantly topless females).

Midshow music: “Academical Futility” by ElectroLatrine (off the album Water Closet Electronic Music Project, natch)

Episode 367: Boob Windows, Y’All (Book Club feat. Digger – Vol. 4)

Batgirl thanks the fansComix Talk lives! Rather, we talk about a lot of comic book news in the first half of the show, in addition to our Whatcha Been Readin’s for BACK and Spelunkying. Not interested? Tune back in after a questionable midshow break for our fourth (and penultimate) look at Digger. We’re nearing the end of this particular Book Club, so catch up if you haven’t yet!

The midshow break is lovingly backed by yet another tune from Kirby Super Star, “Mummy Dance” by Mazedude.

Unless we’re challenged. Then it’s just dust-shaped clouds of Steve and Jason.

Episode 365: IT’S MARPHIN’ TIME! (Review feat. Misfits of Avalon)

Mystic Knights of the Tir na NogThe elusive middle ground on soccer continues to elude us, so we instead focus our attention on more important things (Ed: Retraction on that last statement, we do not focus on more important things). We also talk about webcomics, like Dear Inner Demons and Clique Refresh, along with our featured review, Misfits of Avalon. Don’t worry; whatever your nationality may be, there’s a Power Ranger for us all.

Our midshow break features the track, “The King Awaits“, a remix of the Bowser’s Castle levels from Super Mario Bros., composed and performed by Forrest Fire.

Teen Titans Go! on Cartoon NetworkWonder Twin powers… ACTIVATE! Form of… webcomics podcast! When we’re done waxing nostalgic about the relative ancient history of comic book-inspired animated TV series, we take turns peeking at Star Spun and Doctor Magnifico. After a break involving creating yet another character for Jason to live vicariously through, we help fight the good fight on the side of the GOOD demons as we review Demon Kings. Listen in, because demons are people, too.

Mystique from X-Men: The Last Stand (poster in Spanish)What is your favorite X-Men movie? Wrong! With that out of the way, let Steve and Jason inform you about The Eternally Injured Ninja and Junior Scientist Power Hour while also taking a harder look at B. Sabo’s All Night and Brian Anderson’s The Conjurers. We also talk about what tablets/laptops to buy (or not buy) and Kickstarters that are fully funded. Stay up and sit a spell!

Midshow background music (again) provided by “Welcome To My Kastle“, a remix of a sweet Super Mario 64 track by DDRKirby(ISQ) (because apparently Steve doesn’t pay attention to what music I’ve used in the past)

Limp BizkitKaiju 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.

Midshow music provided by “David’s Quest” from Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest.

Episode 358: Hop Aboard The Mystery Machine! (Review feat. Bad Machinery)

Legolas of The Lord of the RingsIt’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!
