On this week’s episode of the first, and best, webcomics podcast on the Internet, Jason supports the Mummy’s Sabbatical, Steve enjoys when things go Pear Shaped Comics, and Jason fondly remembers JL8, the best DC comic you’re not reading.
We start off with the newest Mario game coming straight to a device probably currently in your pocket, then try to figure out who the new half generation of consoles is for. After that we learn that Steve used to think robots were normal and that his kids try to win his love by opening chests. By the way, Jason killed all the Pokemon.
Everything’s changing! Del Rio left WWE (again), the Usos turned heel, and CM Punk’s first MMA bout has come and gone. Thankfully, we have another Final Deletion as comfort food. Hear our thoughts on country road clown prostitutes, nut-shot happy kangaroos, and CRAZZY STEVE!
We’re solving mysteries, gumshoes! Like, what happens when DS Alumnus Brigid Alverson interviews John Allison? Will Steve and Jason finally contribute to a Patreon thanks to Adam Huber’s Sunday comics plans? Will Steve cry about the ending of Let’s Speak English? And will anyone else care about Jason’s gripes concerning Binwin’s Minions? The answers are here, find them if you dare!
You want webcomics? You GOT webcomics. And nothing but! Okay, there’s a stray comment about other subjects here and there, but the focus is on the news and thoughts about our founding principle: how awesome are webcomics?
To prove it, we’ve got news about the team-up between LINE Webtoons and Patreon, KC Green’s well-deserved domination of the news cycle, Wonderella’s regular schedule ending soon, and Spacetrawler’s triumphant return (the former two bits brought to us by the fine folks at Fleen). We also look at Barbarous and Rosianna Rabbit in this, the newest episode of Digital Strips: The (First, and Best) Webcomics Podcast!
The music in this episode is provided, as always, by I Fight Dragons. It’s the song “No One Likes Superman Anymore” off their album, Cool Is Just a Number.
So we’re trying something different here at Digital Strips. We’ve always wanted to do more shows and have flirted with the idea from time to time (see the occasional video game and pro wrestling podcasts). We’re going to see just how much content we can produce while remaining sane.
This the first episode of that attempt. The regular Digital Strips show will focus just on webcomics so we wanted to find a new home for the random topic discussions that we would do in the first half of the show.
This week we start by talking about marathons, but since neither of us have much experience with pushing our bodies to the limit of accomplishing major goals we quickly have to switch topics to things we know more about, like how disappointed Steve’s wife is with him and the desire to have additional scrotums.
It’s fun we promise.
Music for this episode is Different Heaven by Nekozilla and was provided by No Copyright Sounds.
This is it, Digital Strippers. The last time we’ll talk about Pokemon Go on this podcast. At length. I think. But for this possible final discussion, Steve admits that he’s the last man on Earth to try the game, while Jason laments the fact that his daughter just doesn’t seem to watch to be the very best, like no one ever was. Once the pocket monsters clear out, it’s time for webcomics! Superfogeys has returned, Arcade Rage is yet another awesome video game comic, VG Cats is still hilarious, and RuinWorld is a fun comic where dungeon things happen (according to Steve). Now drop a lure and catch ’em all!
