For the second week of our look at the nominees for the Eisners, the guys check out the five comics nominated for Best Digital Comic: Bandette, Edison Rex, Helm, On a Sunbeam, and Universe!. There’s something old (previously featured), something new, and something that can only be described as fake news that Steve is spreading about one of the four-peat nominees.
Unfortunately for you, Jason is a web designer in his day job and so he has some opinions on the recent redesign Adam Huber applied to Bug Martini. Also, The Eisners are once again nearly upon us, so the guys take a look at the nominees for Best Webcomic: Bird Boy, Deja Brew, Jaeger, The Middle Age, and On Beauty.
