Jason shows just how little he and Garfield the Cat have in common and Steve gets schooled in comic book trivia. Also, webcomics.
Whatcha’ Been Readin’:
- (5:30) Geeks: The Comic Strip by Carl Anderson
- (7:35) Trailer Park Warlock by Matthew J. Rainwater and Austin Price
Other things we like, and news (or news outlets, as the case may be; Gary, let us know if you’d like to form a partnership or something):
- (11:35) Fleen.com, the best source on the web for webcomics news
- (13:30) Untold Tales of Bigfoot by Vince Dorse (congrats on the National Cartoonist Society award, Vince!)
- (14:05) Muscles Diablo in Where Terror Lurks by Pat N. Lewis
Donkey Kong has received a lot of break music love lately, but why not give the Game Boy iterations a proper spotlight? “Banananaz” by Chiwalker (15:15) fits that bill nicely.
It’s good to take some time to catch up with great comics that have fallen off our radar, and reMIND by Jason Brubaker (19:35) is certainly a story worth experiencing. Multiple times. He creates a world that is both familiar and fantastical, bringing with it a sense of wonder and nostalgia. The story is scheduled to wrap up in October, so do yourself a favor, take an hour or so, and catch up with us.
Also, Steve thinks the hero’s body type is like that of Kilo Monster from Monster’s Garden (23:30). He’s not completely wrong.
For those interested in less comic-related topics, Jason finds yet another reason to hate Kid Rock, we wonder how many people AREN’T watching Strip Search, and yes, Steve stopped in the middle of a discussion about comics to relate a story about his son’s poop. Enjoy!

Gonna have to go out of my way to correct you. My characters DO have FOUR fingers. Yeah my earlier artwork was iffy, but they had FOUR fingers.
Only one that has less than four is Bob, for reasons that he isn’t human.
But hey, thanks for mentioning me.
Didn’t mean the comment in any bad light. Just wanted to make a correction. 🙂
Again, thanks for the commentary… and I’ll leave the penguins to your buddy’s imagination. lol.
No need for an apology, we call it like we see it and it’s completely within the bounds of reason and creativity to correct or criticize us as you see fit. I’ll have to dig deeper in the archives and find out more about this … Bob. Thanks for listening and good luck with the comicking!
Thanks, and keep up the fun podcasting. Been enjoying checking out your archives. Very entertaining listening. 🙂
