Digital Strips 226 – Things We Liked 2010

Another year has come and gone and with it the chance to sit around waxing nostalgic about the things can came and went with it. That’s what Internet windbags like to do during the last week of a year and who are we to be any less of windbags.

Every year we like to look back and recap what we think were the best comics of the year. Really it tends (and this year is no different) to devolve into us just listing off comic after comic (as the show notes will attest) and fits of indecision as to which one we like the most.

With the deaths of Zuda, we one had three categories this year. Best Horizon’s Watch (new comic), Best Comic Reviewed by Digital Strips and Best over all comic. We’re always changed the rules as we go, and here we go again, I’m not going to tell you who wins here. You have to tune in to find out.

Digital Strips 225 – Review: Guttersnipe

OK, here we go.

This episode is another one of those old-school, fighty fighty shows were we butt-heads butt heads straight on. We’ve had enough of these of late to make me think this may be the new way the show is from now on so, hooray for progress.

This week the battle lines a draws squarely around Guttersnipe, the cartoony tale of the most adorable little red haired-skamp since Little Orphan Annie. Who I hate. Let’s say since Felicia Day instead, since I like her. This rags-to-rags tale rages all over a fictionalized 1930s America the likes of which the Internet has never seen. At least I hadn’t. If it’s out there some where else please let me know.

Anyway if I’m going to get the show notes linked before I go to work, I’d better wrap this up. Listen to the show and let us know what you think.

Speaking of Show Notes:
Smooth and Natural (warning today’s strip has boobies)

Digital Strips 224 – Review The End

Once again I must apologize for the fact that it is Tuesday rather than Monday, something that is my fault. I must also apologizes for the frist 10 seconds of audio. It gets better real quick I promise.

This week we take on another comic, but that isn’t all that surprising since that’s more or less par for this course. We also fight quite a bit, but once again, that’s sort of what you guys come here for.

This week we’re taking a look at The End a SciFi tale with a plot and a cast quickly spinning out of control. We talk about what we like and what we don’t like, both topics we have varying opinions on. We learn just how wrong Jason is and just how right I can be. All as an absurdity early hour.

All this, some web comics news and more tangents that you can shake a stick at, this week on Digital Strips.

Rampage Network’s 7th Anniversary Contest

Is there anything better than a contest? This time Mr. Hernandez is taking a completely new approach. Taking advantage of the newest technology combined with an interesting experiment we’ve got a twitter contest! Now I’ve been one of those people who has had twitter since the beginning but never took advantage of it. But I can imagine that if just one person picks up on my Rampage tweet news of this contest can spread like wildfire. I like it! Here’s the announcement from the host site:

Digital Strips 223 -Horizons Watch Chim Chum and Smooth N Natural

This week it looks like everything is on time and in it’s place. Please don’t get used to this, I don’t think I can handle the pressure.

Jason and I are back in fighting form and pulling no punches this week. We’ve scanned Horizons looking for new comics and found what we like but that doesn’t necessarily mean that the other one likes it. This week we take on the black and white, single panel cutefest which is Chim Chum and the Portly Samurai. After that we head other to the wrong side of the tracks for the long form, blacksploitation epic, Smooth N Natural (NSFW). I always say this month’s Horizon picks are polar opposites it has never been more true.

Not too much else to say. We get all up in each others digital grills and there ain’t no nothing we can do about it. But there is something you can do about it, leaving a comment below is an excellent way to put which ever one of us you disagree with in his place. So get too it. Jason’s becoming insufferable.
