What happens when you stretch out one work over many, many installments? You get something that may or may not be entertaining all the way through! That multiple-edged sword cuts so many ways. Before we dive into our fourth installment of the Schlock Mercenary Book Club, we take quick peeks at Emily Carroll’s All Along The Wall and Everblue by Michael Sexton. Enjoy the holidays and we’ll see you in 2015!
I’m happy with my choice of gaming console! Are you? Steve has been burned and he wants to tell you, the loyal Digital Stripper, about it. After you’ve politely listened to his rant, stay tuned for Boulet’s take on Jurassic Park and Pewfell by Chuck Whelon. Following a short break about all things Pokemon, hear our brief thoughts on Cosmic Scoundrels by Matt Chapman and Andy Suriano and Wilde Life by Pascalle Lepas.
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!
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!
