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.
A fearful illness has gripped the locker room and thrown the TLC card into chaos! Will Angle wrestle? Will Styles and Balor put on an instant classic? And how about all those cruiserweight and women’s matches, eh? All that, plus SmackDown Live is still good thanks to Owens and Zayn, not to mention Rusev, Pulp Fashion, and THE BLUDGEON BROTHERS.
That was one HELL of a show! Hell in a Cell is over and we have at least one match of the year candidate out of the entire card. Once the guys stop gushing about the tag match and pondering the future for Owens and Zayn, it’s time to talk Raw and the impact the reunited Shield is already having. TLC is gearing up to be a good show, but who will use the T, who will ask for the L, and who can’t wait to see the C? Also, Jason was right about two of his predictions and he makes sure everyone knows it.
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.
Dungeons and Dragons – the archetypal fantasy roleplaying game which created and defined a genre – is a big part of the internet’s collective conscious so it’s no surprise how often it’s referenced in webcomics, whether directly or indirectly. Digital Strips episode 489 delved a little into the between the game, webcomics and their creators (and podcasters) so this seems a perfect time for a companion article series on just what DnD is, how it came to be, and the influence it has had on the webcomics scene.

Raw didn’t have much this week, but if you can’t get behind a slow build to a Shield reunion, there’s nothing you’ll like on the WWE main roster this week. Meanwhile, Hell in a Cell is tomorrow we don’t really care because: one or both of the Hype Bros might turn, Roode’s entrance will outdo Ziggler’s, Orton will have an Orton-ass match, The Usos and New Day will steal the show, Shane/KO will end badly, and we hope the U.S. and WWE Championships swap places. Finally, should we care about what’s going on with Bray? History should steer you on this one. Enjoy the Cell and hope for no Hell!
No Mercy is in the books and Cesaro will never be the same! Also, why does Bray Wyatt continue to be a terribly executed character study? Will Nia win the big one soon? What happens when John Cena is the victim of his own ridiculousness? Did Enzo have the Best Week Ever (TM)? All this, plus KO and Sami fight forever and Mickie James shows that she ain’t just some old lady to be trifled with.
