The question this podcast tries to answer: What is the greatest bad movie starring The Rock? Make your voices known! While we mull that one over, we also briefly discuss Intelligent Life and Krig Rwar (yes, Steve is forever banned from saying comic titles on this podcast) and then get into some tribal fighting with Hominids. Pick your side wisely (hint: one has constantly topless females).
Midshow music: “Academical Futility” by ElectroLatrine (off the album Water Closet Electronic Music Project, natch)
Comix Talk lives! Rather, we talk about a lot of comic book news in the first half of the show, in addition to our Whatcha Been Readin’s for BACK and Spelunkying. Not interested? Tune back in after a questionable midshow break for our fourth (and penultimate) look at Digger. We’re nearing the end of this particular Book Club, so catch up if you haven’t yet!
You’re a grand old flag, you’re a high flying flag, and forever in peace may you talk about webcomics! We salute Demon and Springiette before taking on slightly deeper looks at newcomers, Eth’s Skin and The Secret Files of Project Black Sky. These colors don’t run, and neither do we! Unless we’re challenged. Then it’s just dust-shaped clouds of Steve and Jason.
The elusive middle ground on soccer continues to elude us, so we instead focus our attention on more important things (Ed: Retraction on that last statement, we do not focus on more important things). We also talk about webcomics, like Dear Inner Demons and Clique Refresh, along with our featured review, Misfits of Avalon. Don’t worry; whatever your nationality may be, there’s a Power Ranger for us all.
Jason wants cheese fries and Steve is no help (nacho cheese on your fries is the first and worst mistake you can make). To satisfy your webcomics cravings, we chat briefly about Agnes Quill and Skullchaser before dissecting the gamer-centric comic, PLOX. Speaking of dissecting, the bug talk in the midshow gets creepy and gnarly. You’ve been warned.
Our midshow features the track, “Immune To All” from the album, Metal Works.
It’s World Cup time, and we care about the U.S. team’s chances in this year’s tournament! Until they lose, of course. Then we go back to not caring about soccer, along with every other American sports fan. One thing we will always care about is the comic, Digger. After we chat briefly about Solo and Samurai Genji, we go deep and discover more charming things about this can’t-miss piece of work.
Wonder Twin powers… ACTIVATE! Form of… webcomics podcast! When we’re done waxing nostalgic about the relative ancient history of comic book-inspired animated TV series, we take turns peeking at Star Spun and Doctor Magnifico. After a break involving creating yet another character for Jason to live vicariously through, we help fight the good fight on the side of the GOOD demons as we review Demon Kings. Listen in, because demons are people, too.
We’re living in the Golden Age of cartoons not made exclusively for children! Take in our recommendations and enjoy! Also, listen as Jason marks out for Tagged! and Steve lightly sketches in his thoughts for Home Time. Then, it’s time to gather your group and join the cause, as our guild reviews House of Orr.
Our midshow music is “Fresh From The Sewers” and it comes from the stellar, absolutely-free album from Overclocked Remix, featuring the hits you know and love from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games of old. Check out Shell Shocked and download your copy today!
Midshow background music (again) provided by “Welcome To My Kastle“, a remix of a sweet Super Mario 64 track by DDRKirby(ISQ) (because apparently Steve doesn’t pay attention to what music I’ve used in the past)
Kaiju runnin’ wild up in this piece! After some brief remedial Japanese lessons, we get right into Whatcha Been Readin’ with The God-Child and The Forgotten Order. Steve also lets us know just what Ursula Vernon’s been up to since wrapping up Digger before wedelve into our second Book Club featuring that very comic! Go deep beneath the surface to find the still-beating heart of the Digital Strips… then stab that blackened pustule until you can’t lift your arms. Also, listen after the wrap-up for more Rambletron, including where that goat on a rock thing came from.
