Not content to just talk about comics on the web, this episode features some digital books about comics on the web. So meta! Or something. Enjoy talk about Launch Party (formerly on Kickstarter) and Hit Reblog (now on Comixology) and then hear about a new comic coming from the Brothers Weiner as well as a look at Mary Cagle’s Sleepless Domain, a comic that takes some interesting twists and risks that you won’t be expecting (unless you’re spoiled by this episode, so be warned!).
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!
Celebrate Shark Week like it’s Shark Week because it SHOULD be Shark Week (thanks, Katy Perry)! After a brief Super Bowl recap, we check in with Hypersonic Music Club by Hiroyuki Takahashi and Patrick Macias and Let’s Speak English by Mary Cagle. Then, we dive into a couple of new-ish comics with Kat Swenski’s Behind the GIFs and a new take on a classic; Ultimate Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by Nick Arganbright and Eryck Webb.
