DS 649: War and Peas

It might be a return to the gloriously existential gag-a-day world of War and Peas, but Steve certainly never forgot about the robot hoping to be loved (how could he forget someone so similar to himself?). You’ll find a lot to like the jokes creators Jonathan Kunz and Elizabeth Pich have in store for you here. Maybe just spread them out to avoid crushing, suffocating ennui? That way the antics of a slutty witch will always seem fresh and funny in your mind (but really, why wouldn’t they?).

DS 648: Tom ‘N’ Artie

Journey to new galaxies with two buddies just trying to make rent with Tom ‘N’ Artie, a throwback comic to webcomics of old. Like Steve says, a massive lore dump isn’t always necessary to have a good time with a story, and the titular duo proves it with a zany adventure full of even weirder creatures and plenty of explosions. Strap in and let’s go!

DS 647: Everything is Fine

Everything is Fine? More like Everything is NOT Fine, amirite? Enter this twisted, sanitized world, created by Mike Birchall, where nothing is as it seems but everyone wants you to believe it is. Decide whether you want to keep asking about the dogs and what’s in the basement or take on your job at the box incinerator and wear your suburban best to the next dinner party. Whatever your choice, make sure to listen to our review (and theories!) before reading this tense thriller for yourself!

DS 646: Peritale

Women doing rooftop yoga

For the wingless fairy godmother wannabe screw-up in all of us, there is Mari Costa’s Peritale. Periwinkle does the best she can with what she has, but when her best really isn’t that great, uncomfortable situations and awkward conversations ensue. Also, this comic confirms for us once and for all that cantankerous talking cats are scientifically hilarious. We’ve got all that and news about Cosmoknights Season 2. Climb a tower and take a gander at it all!

DS 645: Doc and the Deathbot

He’s a plague doctor with a heart and he’s a murderous robot sent from the future to save us from a deadly pandemic. Together, they are Doc and the Deathbot, and Steve Ogden is here to give this buddy adventure a sense of humor just a bit too edgy for the Sunday morning funnies (is that still a thing?). Hear our review in addition to news about Kill Six Billion DemonsTom Parkinson-Morgan’s RPG fun and the fourth season of Urban Animal kicking off. Now grab a friend and go have some hijinks!

DS 644: Theseus

If you love stories about Greek gods but want them taken just a bit less seriously, Jordan Holt’s Theseus is the perfect way to spend an afternoon. Jason likens it to the Greek pantheon through the filter of Napoleon Dynamite and Steve concurs. Don’t miss the blog posts either, which are full of their own wit and wisdom, and aren’t required reading to enjoy the story itself. Great work all around, Jordan, now work on those mountains.

DS 643: When I Am King

The final panel of Demian.5's webcomic, When I Am King

Journey back with us to a simpler, more horizontally-scrolling, hornier time as we review the 2020 remake of Demian.5’s 2001 classic, When I Am King. What do the flowers mean? Is that a camel or a dragon? Why is everyone having sex with everything? We had a great time trying to answer those questions and more in this episode!

DS 642: The Hero Business

Welcome to Bill Walko’s The Hero Business, where you’re sure to hear numerous references to comic book ages of yore, misogynistic calls and phrases, and more attempts at gags than character development per four panel page. Together, the guys try to decide if the early 2000-teens was much longer ago than it feels like. Get to know this large cast of diverse, crass characters along with us in our review of this throwback gem!

DS 641: Countdown to Countdown

We’ve got a bit of news about KC Green that should continue his plans for Internet comic supremacy accordingly, this time claiming the Comics Kingdom as his own with a new home for Funny Online Animals! Once we’ve paid our proper respects, it’s time to hide our superpowers, lest they get us killed, in Velinxi’s harsh reality fantasy story, Countdown to Countdown. Which flower would you be, and why is that almost certainly a terrible decision, no matter which one you choose? Listen to our review and then read the comic to find out for yourself!

DS 640: As The Crow Flies

Journey with us into the mountains along with an underprepared leader, her helpful, kind daughter, and some wily, innocent young girls. Melanie Gillman’s As The Crow Flies examines nature as a means of discovery and exploration, using the setting as a character in this coming-of-age story that’s both sweet and tense. 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.
