Episode 376: Debonairness … For Ladies (Review feat. Jumping Boy)

Miss Universe contestant as a TransformerSure, 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!

Episode 375: Rise of the Faplets (Book Club feat. Schlock Mercenary – Vol. 1)

Japanese girls model the latest phabletsPeople 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.

Episode 374: Deep Fried Racism (Horizons Watch feat. Tenko King and Tove)

Egg rollsJason celebrated a birthday and, in the process, lost his dang mind. That’s why you get Monsterkind (previously featured as a Horizons Watch pick) as his Whatcha Been Readin choice, while Steve keeps it real with a new pick, Itchy Feet. Composure is regained as the guys talk about their brand-new Horizons picks, Tenko King and Tove. If it feels like it’s all happened before … well, maybe that’s just you?

Episode 373: Recorded LIVE, With Steve Remote From the ISS! (Review feat. Galacticat)

Chess in the ISSEver wonder what it might sound like if Steve recorded his end of the show from the International Space Station? Wonder no more! This unfortunate happenstance is only with us for the first segment, however, where the guys discuss 70 Seas, Latchkey Kingdom, and Viktor and Jayce. Things stabilize for the second segment, which features a review of the space-hopping fun in Galacticat. Watch the meter and no credit cards, please.

Episode 372: Challenge Accepted (Review feat. The Forgotten Order)

Jason takes the ALS Ice Bucket ChallengeThis episode is largely a publicity stunt, but it also seeks to do some good. When not talking about dumping ice on themselves, Steve and Jason chat briefly about the fantasy pro-wrestling comic, King Maul and the space opera, Terra. When that conversation is concluded, it’s time to dive into more fantasy, this time with a focus on … well, it’s kind of hard to explain. Listen in to the review of The Forgotten Order and sound off on what YOU think they’re talking about.

Episode 371: I’ve Taken Too Many Babies to the Face (Book Club feat. Digger – Vol. 5)

Xavier Woods in the WWE Supercard mobile gameWhile Jason tries to recall his passwords, Steve steers things towards professionalism. Don’t worry, it doesn’t work out. What DOES work out, though, is our brief thoughts on Tove and Star Bunny, Inc. before we offer our final opinions on Digger. You can read the whole thing online and this epic, character-driven tale is highly recommended.

Episode 370: This Dungeon IS Like An Office (Horizons Watch feat. Harpy Gee and Rickety Stitch and the Gelatinous Goo)

Patches O'Hoolihan from the movie, DodgeballSweet fancy Moses did it take some doin’ to get this episode to you! Tune in for hard-fought-for opinions on Sister Claire and The Superpower Union and stick around after the break for our cheery outlook on Harpy Gee and Rickety Stitch and the Gelatinous Goo. The wheels came off the wagon, but somehow, we arrived safely.

Episode 369: Upgrading The Futon (Review feat. Albert the Alien)

Justin Bieber in skinny jeansEver feel like a stranger in a strange land? Well then you’ve come to the right place, the perfect destination for strange things! It’d odd that Jason has checked out a comic about a cat cabbie (catbie?) titled Galacticat, and it’s straight-up bizarre that Steve picked something easily pronounceable in Dungeon Grind. For our review, we settle in alongside new friends and mysterious circumstances with Albert the Alien. Come on in! All are welcome here.

Episode 368: So Charismatic, He Punches Lions In The Face (Review feat. Hominids)

The Rock is The Tooth FairyThe question this podcast tries to answer: What is the greatest bad movie starring The Rock? Make your voices known! While we mull that one over, we also briefly discuss Intelligent Life and Krig Rwar (yes, Steve is forever banned from saying comic titles on this podcast) and then get into some tribal fighting with Hominids. Pick your side wisely (hint: one has constantly topless females).
