We start off this week’s show with a mention of upcoming changes to the Digital Strips online presence. We got a real URL and domain hosting, so be sure to look for an upcoming post when I get the site all nice and ready for guests. Those of you using podcast aggregators take note, the show’s RSS feed will be changing location once we move to the new site. Also we mention this past week’s major geek events even though they have nothing to do with web comics.Our comic picks for this week are as follows:
Joe and Monkey by Zach Miller The Front by Jerzy Drozd Young Alien Types by Donny and Jim Newberry Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire by Michael “Mookie” Terracciano

Hey guys – The Young Alien Types premise is almost the same as an old skit from Kid in the Hall.
You\’re totally right, because Kids in the Hall invented jokes about anal-probing aliens.
I believe the art reference that you were talking about while reviewing Joe and monkey is that of calvin and hobbes.
I don\’t know what chibification is. This may be one of the contributing factors to my rocking-ness.
You mentioned there weren\’t many \’serious\’ super hero comics out there, but there are a few Guardians, Magellan, Kilroy & Tina, Mindmistress to name a few. All worth checking out.
Chibification is the act of becoming so much of an annoying anime fan, you turn into their pudgey little characters known as Chibi\’s. Hope that helps! 😉
Josh \”I don\’t like anime very much\” Welling.
Thanks for the explanation Josh. I\’m pretty confident I won\’t suddenly go chibi, hehe.
Man, you think Joe and Monkey is the most random strip out there? Come on!
