Episode 373: Recorded LIVE, With Steve Remote From the ISS! (Review feat. Galacticat)

Chess in the ISSEver wonder what it might sound like if Steve recorded his end of the show from the International Space Station? Wonder no more! This unfortunate happenstance is only with us for the first segment, however, where the guys discuss 70 Seas, Latchkey Kingdom, and Viktor and Jayce. Things stabilize for the second segment, which features a review of the space-hopping fun in Galacticat. Watch the meter and no credit cards, please.

The midshow break features a chat about dungeon crawlers (video games) and music by Steerner and Martell.

Episode 372: Challenge Accepted (Review feat. The Forgotten Order)

Jason takes the ALS Ice Bucket ChallengeThis episode is largely a publicity stunt, but it also seeks to do some good. When not talking about dumping ice on themselves, Steve and Jason chat briefly about the fantasy pro-wrestling comic, King Maul and the space opera, Terra. When that conversation is concluded, it’s time to dive into more fantasy, this time with a focus on … well, it’s kind of hard to explain. Listen in to the review of The Forgotten Order and sound off on what YOU think they’re talking about.

Episode 371: I’ve Taken Too Many Babies to the Face (Book Club feat. Digger – Vol. 5)

Xavier Woods in the WWE Supercard mobile gameWhile Jason tries to recall his passwords, Steve steers things towards professionalism. Don’t worry, it doesn’t work out. What DOES work out, though, is our brief thoughts on Tove and Star Bunny, Inc. before we offer our final opinions on Digger. You can read the whole thing online and this epic, character-driven tale is highly recommended.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.
