After hearing Steve’s recounting of a fight with a crane (more to come later?), it’s on to the webcomics! Zach Weiner asked his followers for comic recommendations and they more than obliged (Facebook thread, Twitter thread), Room of Swords and Gosu prove that Webtoons houses some excellent comics (and brings some annoying downsides to the reading platform at the same time), and Business Cat is trying something new.
Memory is tied to our senses in ways the guys don’t understand. Jason jumps between the soundtracks for Beverly Hills Cop and The Bodyguard when it comes to dictating his childhood. Steve finds Washington state to be EXTREMELY dank, but his need for Chinese food when Enrique Iglesias is belting out tunes means maybe we can’t trust him.
Come, converse with us about all things webcomics (and a few that aren’t)! Jason looks back on a recent JL8 story and sings the praises of Frank and Becky’s latest triumph, Bustletown, while Steve recalls the beautiful world of Scurry and the often humorously dark Things in Squares.
It’s winter, and you know what that means: the flu is here! Enzo lays down, but Strowman refuses to job to influenza and the show goes on! The guys haven’t seen Wrestle Kingdom yet, so they’re left to ponder the questions left by the WWE: Can we do something interesting with Hardy and Wyatt now? Is Sexy Dana Brooke sexy? Can we make the Miztourage and actual, functioning tag team? Could Lesnar BE more checked out? Could Jason love Karl Malone’s WCW stuff more? Can we Bexplode everyone? Where do we watch the Mixed Match Challenge again? And just what is Daniel Bryan up to?
It’s never too late to get spooked, especially when Abby Howard is doin’ the scarin’! Even a Door In The Kitchen can be creepy with the right motivations. After that, enjoy the wide open animal talkin’ splendor of Africa, followed by gags-a-plenty with Indoor Graveyard. Finally, we check in on the Goblins Animated Kickstarter, which is now an Indiegogo.
Oh, and here’s the link to that Mark Hamill animated short that the guys talked about. Highly recommended work from the master himself.
We’ve got lookalikes, webcomic Likes, and a comic that’s, like, about stuff. Check out the xkcd-a-like Abstruse Goose, a list of webcomics to check out courtesy of the call put out by comics powerhouse Brian Michael Bendis, and enjoy a gag-a-day with Nothing Suspicious.
After pondering the consistency and look of robot … oil, the guys set to talking about many, many webcomics! Full Plate (Google Play) is another motion comic to check out, Hejibits, Mrs. Frollein, and Robospunk represent various aspects of the single-shot comic format, and A Fire Story tells a poignant, educational story about living through the true life horror of an out-of-control wildfire.
After the guys determine who REALLY loves their grandmother, it’s off to webcomics! Nothing Special goes against it’s title, I’m The Bird Guy reminds us that Instagram isn’t a great comics platform, Protanopia shows promise, and the terrific tag-team of Ehud and Yael are back with some more short story comic goodness.
After a bit of nonsense about bad impersonations versus good impersonations, the guys take a look at two fun fantasy webcomics. First up is Dungeon Construction Co., brought to us by some familiar faces, and featuring a dissection of those fantasy gaming tropes we all know and love. Secondly, Steve brings an incredibly horny monster comic to the show with Frankenstein Superstar. If you’ve ever asked yourself just how much sex the iconic horror staple has, you’ll love this comic!
Jason brings the filthy post-apocalyptic comic strip homage, Weapon Brown, along with a mention of Terence’s latest article about Andrew Gregoire and his battle with anxiety. Steve keeps it light and funny, with the frivolity of Good Bear Comics and the childish period drama, Bloodlust and Bonnets.
