We’ve got popular opinions, like Chris Columbus’ Pixels is crap! We’ve got unpopular opinions, like the first two Harry Potter movies were the best of the series! We also take a look at our RSS feeds and perform our first Comics Cleanse! There’s bound to be something you agree/disagree with in there, so stop by the site and let us know what it is!
Family really is just the worst, right? That’s what Kevin thought in Home Alone, and we tend to agree with him! (But not really) After we make certain Steve knows the difference between Joe Pesci and Danny DeVito, we move on to more important subjects, like webcomics. In the second segment, we talk about EVO, Street Fighter comics, Wonderella’s penchant for taking on current events, and Steve introduces everyone to Blackgrass and Stonebreaker. You’re alone in New York … what would YOU do?
Comic-Con went down, and what do we want to talk about? Fitness. And cursing. Yes, it was supposed to lead into a geekier discussion. No worries, though, as that discussion comes in the second segment, where we talk about Automata, Disappointing Monsters, Rob Lundy, The Floraverse, and much, much more!
Swear to me! … that you’ll listen to this Bat-tastic episode! Jason runs down his brief time with Arkham Knight while Steve grapples with the concept of a grapnel. After a brief break, it’s nothing but webcomics, webcomics, webcomics! The guys chat about Sharksplode, Table Titans, The Brothers Chapman, Penny Arcade, and Reptilis Rex. Plus, stay tuned after the outro for a well-produced mix of idiocy.
Welcome to our movie podcast! Jason’s intentions for a Happy Father’s Day turned to dust when he was rerouted to the retread that is Pitch Perfect 2. Meanwhile, Steve’s two-month stint with no wife or kids is starting to manifest in some … unhealthy ways. Help him out by listening to discussions about Superfogeys, podcasts, Table Titans, and a nearly forgotten news item that is a must-hear. Turn off your cell phones and then … just turn them back on. We know you didn’t actually turn them off. We’re not monsters.
Are the fences still on? ARE THE FENCES STILL ON?!? Good. Now we can relax, have some ice cream, and enjoy some comics talk. The guys talk about the awesomeness of Der-shing Helmer, the gaming webcomic you’re NOT reading, the awesomeness of Wonderella, and how many drugs Jess Fink must have taken to sustain the same sex scene for more than a year. Buckle up, this is going to be a long one!
It doesn’t matter how advanced the toys get, the best tool for your imagination is still a great stick from the backyard. Or a whiffle bat, if you’re Steve. Once the guys discuss how much better their childhoods could have been, it’s time to talk about comics! Tauhid Bondia (Goodship Chronicles, Epicsplosion) is working up something new, JL8 is leaving Steve wanting more, Broodhollow‘s 3rd season is off to a … start? And we bid adieu to the melancholy that was A Softer World. It’s raining outside, so let’s stay in and read some comics, okay?
Steve has never watched the majesty and pageantry of American Idol, but with YOUR VOTES (or reviews on iTunes), we can change that. Once Jason is finished running down his brief (but not brief enough) history with the now-ending show, the second segment brings webcomics.
The guys chat about Randall Munroe’s next book, Thing Explainer, Rice Boy returning for a commentary-laden rerun season, John Allison’s latest comic, and some Order of the Stick plot predictions. Vote for your favorite topic when the lines open … NOW.
When you have a random week, your podcast follows suit. True to form, the guys chat about the wise teachings of Bob’s Burgers, Jason’s involvement in the recent Splatoon Global Testfire (not a fart joke, sorry), and Steve using Mortal Kombat X to come to terms with a life-long fear of Freddy Krueger.
In the second segment, it’s time to get serious and focused, with topics like the return of Robot Pirates and Atland, and what they mean to the webcomics landscape together. Also, there is an infinite canvas comic out now (The Boat) that you must see to believe. After the outro, Steve owns up to his selfish ice cream consumption and the guys invent the flash mob tandem cropdust (that is a fart joke, also sorry).
Didn’t partake of the mass geek offering of the week? Come on in, this is a safe space. While we can’t talk about Age of Ultron, we CAN discuss the end of Grooveshark, what that means to Steve’s listening habits, and how stoked we are to imagine a new Evanescence album.
The second segment is dedicated to Demon, Tragedy Series, The Trenches, and Owlturd, all webcomics that are worth your time for various reasons. Post-outro, we find out just why Jason seems to be off his game and why you should never have kids (but you totally should).
