The 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.
Wonder 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.
Midshow music: “The Place That Won’t Take Me Back” by I Am Not Lefthanded.
We’re living in the Golden Age of cartoons not made exclusively for children! Take in our recommendations and enjoy! Also, listen as Jason marks out for Tagged! and Steve lightly sketches in his thoughts for Home Time. Then, it’s time to gather your group and join the cause, as our guild reviews House of Orr.
Our midshow music is “Fresh From The Sewers” and it comes from the stellar, absolutely-free album from Overclocked Remix, featuring the hits you know and love from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games of old. Check out Shell Shocked and download your copy today!
It’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!
Midshow music is “Sunburst” by Tobu & Itro.
No use escaping, you’re in here with ME now! While you’re here, why not listen to Jason muse about The Conjurers, then hear Steve geek out about D20 Monkey. If you haven’t tapped by then, you’ll absolutely mark out for our review of the anime action-infused Vibe. Now TAP! TAAAAAAAAAAP!
Before we go on that magic carpet ride, we groove to the beauty of Blindsprings and the whimsy of Tenko King. After a bit of news and midshow trippiness, it’s time to blaze up, take a soak and let your mind go as we attempt to make sense of the drug-addled mind warp that is Body World. Pass it over!
Midshow trippiness supplemented by “Come On” by ZOE.LEELA of the album Digital Guilt.
This week, Jason played a card game he thinks looks like a webcomic (Sentinels Of The Multiverse) while Steve read an actual webcomic (Oh Hell). They then review the adorable stranger danger in Bird-Boy. Clip those wings and stick around for the fun!
Jason hangs out with Robbie and Bobbie, while Steve stays up with Sleep Deprivation Ninja. They then join forces to try and figure out just what the heck is going on in the time-traveling tale, Saint For Rent. If your nose starts to bleed, you have our permission to pause the podcast and find your constant.
With Sochi being an out-and-out debacle of an ultimate sporting competition, it’s up to us to pick up the slack back here at home. To do this, Jason (yes, that Jason) has been readin’ Sithrah, Rock and Tin, and From Nothing, and Steve checked out Vibe. Jason also tricked Steve into reviewing a gay love story that masquerades as a sci-fi robot adventure. O Human Star by Blue Delliquanti is the real deal in both respects, so be sure you don’t miss out!
Steve floats towards Dead Winter, docks with a nigh unpronounceable comic, and Jason talks about the trouble with Trenches. Then they reunite to discuss the tropey fun that is Star Power. Fire those thrusters and cruise on in!
