Journey with us into the mountains along with an underprepared leader, her helpful, kind daughter, and some wily, innocent young girls.

Hear our thoughts on this tale that’s representative of experiences wildly different than our own and why we found even more value in its lessons as a result.

Jack Jack from The Incredibles blasts green lasers from his eyes

DS 636: Silverback

The world of Richard Macrae’s Silverback is full of superheroes and supervillains, and is lacking in evidence as to which is which. It’s a throwback to the Silver Age while also being full of tropes, cliches, and loads of fun. While we wish the site it lives on were more modern, you shouldn’t miss this wild, evil ride!

DS 635: Webcomic Name

Alex Norris’ Webcomic Name will have you saying oh no over and over, but in a good way! It’s a comic that dwells on the negative and depressing elements of life, but with such joy and whimsy that you won’t get lost in just how meaningless life really is. It also abstracts forms to both fascinating and terrifying effect and must be read to be believed!

DS 634: SWORDS

Eddie Valiant from Who Framed Roger Rabbit holds the singing sword

It can be hard to stick to the point and really cut to the heart of a matter, but Matthew Wills does just that with SWORDS, his love letter to all things sharp and pointy. While Jason gets a bit less of a kick out of the running gag than Steve does, both guys appreciate the dedication to the gag and the ability to get so much humor out of such a narrow subject. Unsheathe your best weapon and prepare to take on the gauntlet of sword-based puns and jokes with us!

It’s a shonen comic that gets better with age and features a fight longer than many marriages last these days. Get off the couch and don’t miss it!

DS 632: Vainglorious

In Vainglorious, Hammer (yes, his name is Hammer) wants to run away from his problems and responsibilities, but then Rei, a former dragon cursed with a human form, falls into his lap (almost literally) and the two become instant friends. Well no, not really, and that’s where the greatness of this comic comes from. Creator Kelly Bull (Sketches) takes us on a journey that is both fantastic and fun, with plenty of hilarious facial expressions and bombastic fantasy along the way.
