Steve has never watched the majesty and pageantry of American Idol, but with YOUR VOTES (or reviews on iTunes), we can change that. Once Jason is finished running down his brief (but not brief enough) history with the now-ending show, the second segment brings webcomics.
LOOK OUT! Here comes a spider, man. We take care of the day-to-day goings on with our Whatcha Been Readin’ picks, Crossed: Dead or Alive by Garth Ennis and Daniel Gete and AC Stuart’s Noob the Loser (beware, there be GIFs afoot) before we delve once again into the deep dark of the Schlock Mercenary archives. And after the show proper, we have an announcement about the Book Club format for future shows.
The snow falls, and our balls deflate. That’s our story and we’re stickin’ to it! Also our story: webcomics. We take a look at School Spirit by Daniel VanderWerff and Atomic Robo by Brian Clevenger and Scott Wegener, all before we review Julie Wright and Amanda Gomes’ Ianua. Believe us or don’t, but this podcast is happening.
Do you remember going to the video store, hoping to get your favorite video game, AGAIN, or possibly a peek behind the forbidden curtain into the back room? We do, and we also talk about comics! We quickly go over KC Green’s new beat on Video Game Cheats ‘n’ Beatums and Moth and Ethan by Andrew Chandler before taking a deeper look at Henchgirl by Kristen Gudsnuk. Are you loyal enough to listen in?
It’s time once again to determine who is the best, who is the brightest, who is our 2014 Katie Rice of the Year? The list of nominees is long, the discussion is lively, and the winners will SHOCK you. Also, why can’t we still get awesome parody movies like Airplane! and The Naked Gun? Your answers await you in this, the first installment of 2015 of the first and best webcomics podcast on the planet!
What happens when you stretch out one work over many, many installments? You get something that may or may not be entertaining all the way through! That multiple-edged sword cuts so many ways. Before we dive into our fourth installment of the Schlock Mercenary Book Club, we take quick peeks at Emily Carroll’s All Along The Wall and Everblue by Michael Sexton. Enjoy the holidays and we’ll see you in 2015!
I’m happy with my choice of gaming console! Are you? Steve has been burned and he wants to tell you, the loyal Digital Stripper, about it. After you’ve politely listened to his rant, stay tuned for Boulet’s take on Jurassic Park and Pewfell by Chuck Whelon. Following a short break about all things Pokemon, hear our brief thoughts on Cosmic Scoundrels by Matt Chapman and Andy Suriano and Wilde Life by Pascalle Lepas.
We braved the insanity of Black Friday to bring you this very important podcast! Actually, we stayed in, like sane people do, and put forth some amount of effort to bring you this, the 386th installment of our esteemed show. In this episode, The Firelight Isle by Paul Duffield and David Fickling and Beeserker by TJ Cordes show promise, but we dive deep into the trope-heavy, magical girl fantasy comic, Roza, by Kelly Hamilton. Come with us, there’s safety in numbers!
Ok, you’ve had a year, now it’s time to join the current generation of gaming consoles. Steve did, and we all know he’s the LAST one to do things. Chirault by Varethane and Wildelife by Pascalle Lepas covers Whatcha’ Been Readin’. And the review of Savannah Houston-McIntyre’s Amya finds a comic that shows lots of promise and has a great cast of characters to root for/boo. Stuff that turkey!
