Have you kept up with Superfogeys? Then you know that another hiatus is upon us, but worry not, because it should be a shorter one this time! Also, a wolf works customer service (Customer Service Wolf), a girl finds herself burdened (blessed?) with a demon for a shadow (Ushala at World’s End), and a lot of random dark humor (At Random).
Comics that tell the story of someone living a life outside the norms of our own are crucial to enhancing our world view, and Dear Korea is a more whimsical but still enjoyable take on this genre. On the other end of the spectrum, Chris Grine is experiencing success in both the kid and adult fiction arenas and so, needs a pen name to differentiate the two. Also, it’s 2017 and we’re leading off with a gaming comic in the form of Respawn. As bad as things are outside our entertainment bubble, we need comfort food every now and then. Sue us.
It’s 2017 and awards shows feel outdated when even the highest office in the land is won illegitimately. So the guys are just hosting a round-up of all the great stuff they looked at in 2016. Some favorites are named, some hang-ups are shared, and you should write down every comic they mention as one to check out if you haven’t already. The 2016 Year In Review show is here!
We’re starting off our 2017 with a bunch of malarky and cheeky fun. How about we give you a bit of each with 1,111 Animals, Highgreen Dawn, and War and Peas? Also, listen as Jason learns something about potatoes. Should be a great year!
It’s the last show before Christmas, and we have more gifts for you! Chris Grine is celebrating Wicked Crispy getting a book deal, and Harry Potter has never been more succinct, or hilarious. Also, the guys take a deeper dive on Rising Sand, one of the most gorgeous comics to ever grace a computer screen.
The guys return to days gone by and dedicate the entire episode to a review of a single webcomic! They turn their critical eyes towards Riana Dorsey’s Suihira, a tale about family, beliefs, and dedication in the face of adversity. Also, a killer whale that is the deity embodiment of water. Enjoy!
Though the guys have seen a lot of the slice-of-life, art student journal comics lately, Electric Bunny Comics is yet another fun one. Ascension, however, is not fun, but could be something special someday. Steve also brings Grassblades to the conversation, tropes and all. Finally, Jason has an idea that will return us to old-school Digital Strips next week. Listen in for the details and find out how you can join the experience! (Also, read Suihira.)
Have you seen Gone in 60 Seconds? Because from the way Steve describes it, this film sounds like a joyful romp! Other things you should check out: the comic Thief of Tales by Guillaume Bonnet, an Evan Dahm Kickstarter involving classic literature, and a new comic from Anne Szabla.
