We have opinions! About things we haven’t seen or experienced for ourselves! Welcome to the internet! Both Steve and Jason have seen enough of Zack Snyder’s previous body of work to know what to expect though, and that makes up the bulk of their distaste. But have no fear, because webcomics are here to turn that gray, gloomy day into a blue, bright one! Jason reminds us how awesome The Meek and Randall Munroe are, and Steve wants us to think long and hard about our opinions on non sequitur comics with Mr. Lovenstein and nellucnhoj. After the outro, it’s a two-fer deal on Rambletrons with discussions about things Steve will never admit to owning and misunderstood nursery rhymes.
