It’s a week of amazing feats, as we take on week 3 of the massive back-catalog that is Schlock Mercenary! Oh, and some probe landed on some comet. We also chat about Matt Chapman and Andy Suriano’s Cosmic Scoundrels and Seaclops by Andy Duggan, as well as the recent woes that Marc Lapierre faced when his amazing work was co-opted without his permission. Happy endings for everyone, though
Did YOU go to Blizzcon? Neither did the guys, but it doesn’t stop them from talking about it for a bit! Jason also wraps up his Halloween-inspired picks with Emily Carroll’s When The Darkness Presses. Steve opts for lighter fare with Joe England’s Zebra Girl. Together, they then take a look at the horizons with Karin Rindevall’s The Din and John Allison’s Expecting To Fly. Listen up and take off!
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).
We’re all sick up in here, but while we’re quarantined, why not look at some webcomics? In between coughing fits, we check out Lake Gary and The Black Brick Road of Oz. Then, when the aches and pains subside, we continue our decades-long look at Schlock Mercenary with our second edition of that Book Club. You’re already infected, so come join us!
Choose your character! Will you be a lanky doofus who played video games on his graduation day? Or a hat-wearing dork who lost his scholarship thanks to video games?

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?

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!
Sure, we feature our take on the tired format of American pageants, but we have too much webcomics talk (yes, webcomics!) in this episode to focus on frivolous topics. Jason caught up with Gun Show and checked out Expecting to Fly, while Steve recommends Happy Jar and Lake Gary. After a bit of news involving Jason Shiga’s Demon and The Legend of Bill, we leap right into a review of Jumping Boy. We’re bounding about with joy, so slap on your magic goggles and join us!
People in our circles typically follow the gadget world pretty closely. For our podcast, that assumption would be half right. Listen to Jason tell Steve about all the devices he’ll be pining for in the next year! Marvel as Steve couldn’t give less of a crap! All this, plus a sad tale of misaligned brotherhood and our first of many forays into the deep, dark area of space that encompasses Howard Tayler’s long-running classic, Schlock Mercenary.
