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.
Jason wants cheese fries and Steve is no help (nacho cheese on your fries is the first and worst mistake you can make). To satisfy your webcomics cravings, we chat briefly about Agnes Quill and Skullchaser before dissecting the gamer-centric comic, PLOX. Speaking of dissecting, the bug talk in the midshow gets creepy and gnarly. You’ve been warned.
Our midshow features the track, “Immune To All” from the album, Metal Works.
It’s World Cup time, and we care about the U.S. team’s chances in this year’s tournament! Until they lose, of course. Then we go back to not caring about soccer, along with every other American sports fan. One thing we will always care about is the comic, Digger. After we chat briefly about Solo and Samurai Genji, we go deep and discover more charming things about this can’t-miss piece of work.
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!
What is your favorite X-Men movie? Wrong! With that out of the way, let Steve and Jason inform you about The Eternally Injured Ninja and Junior Scientist Power Hour while also taking a harder look at B. Sabo’s All Night and Brian Anderson’s The Conjurers. We also talk about what tablets/laptops to buy (or not buy) and Kickstarters that are fully funded. Stay up and sit a spell!
Midshow background music (again) provided by “Welcome To My Kastle“, a remix of a sweet Super Mario 64 track by DDRKirby(ISQ) (because apparently Steve doesn’t pay attention to what music I’ve used in the past)
Kaiju runnin’ wild up in this piece! After some brief remedial Japanese lessons, we get right into Whatcha Been Readin’ with The God-Child and The Forgotten Order. Steve also lets us know just what Ursula Vernon’s been up to since wrapping up Digger before wedelve into our second Book Club featuring that very comic! Go deep beneath the surface to find the still-beating heart of the Digital Strips… then stab that blackened pustule until you can’t lift your arms. Also, listen after the wrap-up for more Rambletron, including where that goat on a rock thing came from.
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!
Jason muses on the possibilities of a Mrs. Doubtfire sequel and massive poop travel emergencies, and Steve admits his shame publicly while giving Jason a new nickname. They also join forces to pick apart Fowl Language and The Only Living Boy. We’ve only been at this for seven years but already we’re getting hot flashes.
