When you love both sides equally, how can you possibly be expected to choose? Ripa and Strahan or Iron Man and Captain America, whatever the rivalry, the quandry remains the same. It’s not difficult at all to get excited about the webcomics in this episode, though! We talk about the Eisner nominees, Overwatch getting its comics due, and yet another Ryan Estrada project to get pumped about. Stay tuned after the outro to hear Jason whine about yard work, even though he is an adult.
When the Oscars come around, Steve and Jason like to talk about the films that won’t possibly be nominated for Best Picture. Steve is really high on the new iteration of The Jungle Book (especially the slithering sexiness of ScarJo’s Kaa) and Jason is curious just what the plot of the next Captain America will be. Once the moving pictures are behind them, it’s time to get into … more moving pictures. In this case, though, it’s the haunting, scrolling work by Stuart Campbell, These Memories Won’t Last. Then, Jason gets nearly every fact about Nilah Magruder’s Dwayne McDuffie award win wrong and Steve brings it home with a ton of tasty treats with a whole mess of Anyone For Rhubarb? one-shots. Post-outro, the Rambletron is loaded with reasons why white husbands are worse than Chinese ones.
