Episode 429: Dream That Dream, You Beautiful Dreamer

Open World RPG on KickstarterWe promise never to talk about Kickstarter again … if you just indulge us with this first segment dedicated almost solely to a Kickstarter. But this one’s got everything! Empty promises! Impossible goals! Lying! Deceit! And dreaming! Oh, the dreaming. Once the guys come down from that high, the second segment brings some older but great comics to check out, like Trailer Park Warlock and My Blacks Don’t Match, as well as a newer homage comic for the Demon’s/Dark Souls series of games. Enjoy and may the Farce be with you.

Sad ChewbaccaLTTP as per usual, but Jason and Steve finally lay down their thoughts about The Force Awakens. Did it live up to the hype? Is Poe Dameron really that good?

In the second, now shorter segment, comics rule the day, with chatter about He Is a Good Boy, Thunderpaw, Space Case, ShootAround, Never Satisfied, Delilah Dirk, and some freaky Korean webcomic. Now let’s find the tiny but fatal flaw in this whole thing and blow it to smithereens!
