Jason has news about the successful end of the Superfogeys Kickstarter as well as Tauhid Bondia’s A Problem Like Jamal getting serious about systemic racism and gun violence. After the news, the guys dive back into Mad Rupert’s Sakana for the second part of their review of this great comic. You might feel like nothing has happened for pages (chapters?) at a time, but in the end, it’s a journey well worth going on. Make some new friends and enjoy this comic today!
Jason talks with Superfogeys creator Brock Heasley about his first novel, Paper Bag Mask, the real-world inspirations for that story, the Kickstarter currently wrapping up for the first volume of Superfogeys, and the long, winding road to where that comic is now.
We promise never to talk about Kickstarter again … if you just indulge us with this first segment dedicated almost solely to a Kickstarter. But this one’s got everything! Empty promises! Impossible goals! Lying! Deceit! And dreaming! Oh, the dreaming. Once the guys come down from that high, the second segment brings some older but great comics to check out, like Trailer Park Warlock and My Blacks Don’t Match, as well as a newer homage comic for the Demon’s/Dark Souls series of games. Enjoy and may the Farce be with you.
But you know what’s not awesome about the Internet? Fleen. But it is Fleen we have to thank for news that the Kickstarter project for SMBC Theater Goes To SPACE! has not only achieved funding five times over for the upcoming webseries, but celebrated doing so by putting the entire first DVD’s worth of content up on YouTube for everyone to enjoy, cheapskate and gracious contributor alike.
If only Congress could work together on this level and get something done, we wouldn’t have to rely on geniuses like Weiner and his crew to lampoon political snafus like that and…
Wait, on second thought… Congress! Keep on screwin’ that pooch!
Another day, another Kickstarter. This time around, it’s Travis Hanson, who’s asking for help getting his first collection of The Bean off the ground. He’s also posting updates to the project as they come along, so there’s more reason to visit the KS page and pledge your money to help him out. To his credit, it looks like the funding process is already going along swimmingly.
