We braved the insanity of Black Friday to bring you this very important podcast! Actually, we stayed in, like sane people do, and put forth some amount of effort to bring you this, the 386th installment of our esteemed show. In this episode, The Firelight Isle by Paul Duffield and David Fickling and Beeserker by TJ Cordes show promise, but we dive deep into the trope-heavy, magical girl fantasy comic, Roza, by Kelly Hamilton. Come with us, there’s safety in numbers!
Ok, you’ve had a year, now it’s time to join the current generation of gaming consoles. Steve did, and we all know he’s the LAST one to do things. Chirault by Varethane and Wildelife by Pascalle Lepas covers Whatcha’ Been Readin’. And the review of Savannah Houston-McIntyre’s Amya finds a comic that shows lots of promise and has a great cast of characters to root for/boo. Stuff that turkey!
WE HAVE THE POWERRRRRRR! … to give you a great podcast about webcomics. We briefly check in with Abby Howard’s The Last Halloween and ML Snook and Katie DeGelder’s Opportunities in Space. After the break (involving discussions of lesbians on the trick-or-treating trail), we find our sword and power up for a review of Xamag’s The Black Brick Road of Oz.
You’ve found your favorite new shows of this fall season, now come find out what the DS crew is diggin’! After TV Talk, it’s time to dig into Single Dragon and Light and Stone (which may or may not employ stone falluses). After the break, we investigate the creepy anthology comic, Agnes Quill. I always feel like somebody’s watching me, and now you will, too!
The mid-show music is provided by Louis Futon (yes, really).
Time to upgrade that OS again, everybody! But only if you want to be an INSIDER. You want to be an insider, don’t you? Only once you’re on the inside can you get quick shots of comics like The Creepy Casefiles of Margo Maloo and Mokepon. You’ll also have access to our exclusive review of Blindsprings. Act now, because … well, there’s plenty of spots for everyone. And the preview could crash your system at any time. But … sign up anyways?
You stumbled upon a random chest. Inside? Your very own Inspiring Fine Blade of Mending and Podcasting, with +3 to Awesomeness! Keep grinding through a quick view of Kingdoms Lost and Princess at Midnight to reach the endgame. By the time you reach the review of Family Man, your level will be so high that you’re sure to have a great time! Bring your friends!
Ever 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 bySteerner and Martell.
This 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.
The midshow break features a chat about Guardians of the Galaxy and music byMaduk.
Ever 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.
The 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)
