There’s middle of nowhere, and then there’s the wide expanses of Idaho. Once Steve tells Jason all about the more colorfully-named parts of his home state, it’s on to a couple of comics that show their animal instincts proudly with Scurry and Ghosts of the Gulag.
Ever hear a short guy and tall guy come to terms with the appropriate lengths of a pair of pants? Ridiculous. Luckily, this podcast is about webcomics. Together, the guys look at A Comik and Elf & Warrior.
What is a webcomic? Does that term matter any longer? Did it ever? After the guys give their mercifully brief thoughts on this topic, it’s on to the comics! This week, Jason brings Irregular to the table, while Steve presents us with Wooden Plank Studios.
Let your hair down and hear our thoughts on a magical good time with Witchy, a comic that encourages you to grow it all out (but not too much). Steve also brings us Slack Wyrm, a comic about a saucy dragon, among other things. We also present On a Sunbeam, a comic about trolling around the galaxy in a fish ship and cleaning up the ancient messes that people leave behind. Comb it out and turn it up!
We can’t get enough pop culture and great mixtures of longform, one-off jokes, and Port Sherry fulfills all of those needs! Also, Existential Comics will make you feel dumb, until the penis jokes kick in and it’s all gravy. Finally, Precious Rascals is exactly what it sounds like and you will be so happy it is.
This past week in WWE (which was most definitely NOT the go-home for Fastlane) featured a return to the Kevin Owens of old, and that is a return we can get behind. The Big Show also returned for a great showing against Strowman in the Raw main, plus Naomi broke our hearts when she had to drop the title. So much emotion, and then Brock Lesnar stared into our souls and we’re afraid to leave the house. Vroom vroom Fastlane, hurry and get here! (Also, sorry about Jason’s sound quality. He has been punished.)
The guys have a couple of unique webcomics this time around, looking at the quirky family journal comic, Messy Cow, and what it would be like to have a cat for a boss with Business Cat. Also, Jason noticed that the voice of Crow T. Robot in the MST3K reboot will be none other than former webcomic jokester (now professional elsewhere jokester) Hampton Yount! Along with Steve, he recounts his past encounters with him and hopes for nothing but the best for he and the rest of the reboot cast.
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.
