Yeah, no idea what we’re doing on this week’s show because it’s Steve’s pick and he hasn’t told me what he’s chosen yet. And he doesn’t even know about that fact because he doesn’t read our blog. You know, the one that supports the podcast that he co-hosts on a weekly basis?
In lieu of that news, Paul Southworth has put himself in his very own comic (pictured, left), playing a graphic designer who hates the characters he himself helped birth. Whoa.
Steve and I decided that enough people have told us they love the podcast that we’re taking our interests and broadening things by introducing a new show! It’s called Put Up or Shut Up and it’s hosted exclusively on Audioboo. That service is perfect for mini-podcasts, so we’re tossing up our random thoughts, webcomics-related or otherwise, for your listening pleasure.
We’re not gumming up the works for our main podcast feed with this (or any other) new show(s), but Audioboo is so awesome that the basic feed options are already included right out of the box!
Have a listen to the first episode, “Mexican Food”, and stay tuned for more geeky goodness from this humble two-man wrecking crew!
It’s been nearly a year since the last F@NB0Y$ comic (do not miss having to write that title) was posted, leaving many to forget about Scott Dewitt’s hilarious, amazingly drawn gaming comic. His humor was perfectly sharp, with a razor’s edge that spared no genre or creator, and until this latest strip went live, I’d all but forgotten about just how much I missed it.
You think this is funny? Check out the image link for the full joke!
The recent E3 show provided the perfect opportunity for Scott to flex his gaming parody muscles once again and “Our Dysfunctional E3 Families” proves that few can do it better than he. Welcome back, Scott! I know I can speak for gamers everywhere when I say I hope you stick around for a while.
Nearly any art is worth entering a free contest to win, especially when that art is original work and includes a signed print of that same work. And when it’s presented by the fellas behind Snowflakes (namely, Chris Jones, Zach Weiner, and James Ashby)? Well then it’s just a no-brainer. Click here for the details and be as creative with your entry as these guys are with their work!
Be creative with where and how you share this poster and it could be yours! Signed, of course.
Being nearly the last comic publisher to jump on the digital bandwagon (unless you count Zuda, which only gets a half-pass from me considering they still use Flash for their viewing model), DC Comics quietly released their app for the iPhone and iTouch this morning. Twitter followers quickly leached onto this and retweeted the news into oblivion:
It was a busy Monday in Twitterville, so let’s get started! Kicking things off, it looks like Kate Beaton has another comic in the New Yorker. It features “tiny fat ponies” and is thus the most important thing you will read today.
Up next, Kris Straub and Scott Kurtz have decided to start another podcast series, with this go ’round being a simple morning show wherein they discuss… well, pretty much anything and everything. Tune in live and your question/topic could be next!
Another fine find comes to us courtesy of Paul Southworth, this time in the form of the next great something from Jon Rosenberg, formerly of Goats. You’ll recall that Jon recently stepped away from that comic in favor of something more commercially accessible. This is that comic.
When you tweet a lot, you’re more likely to be our Tweet Thread of the Day. When you actually tweet quality topics, such as lunch choices and beard updates, you’re nearly guaranteed this honor. So it goes with Paul Southworth, who now adds another comic to his catalog with Isaac Splode. I’ll let the thread do the rest of the ‘splainin.
The tweet below is pretty self-explanatory and to answer your question, Evan, I got you the first Google image search result for “happy birthday”. Enjoy and to the rest of you, go check out Pajama Forest, the most expressive, adorably zany semi-journal comic on the Web!
