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.

The midshow break features a chat about Guardians of the Galaxy and music by Maduk.

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 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.

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!
