Episode 430: The 57th Annual Digital Strippies

Hands clapping, saying congratulationsIt’s that time again! Time to take a look back at nearly every comic we digitally stripped in 2015 and determine which were our favorites. It’s a great discussion full of comics you might have missed in the past year, all contained in the second segment after Jason and Steve run down their thoughts on the new Cloverfield movie in the first.

Small Press Brings Us The Ignatz Award Nominees And They Are… Weird

But not necessarily weird in a, “Ew! Mommy, why doesn’t that man have any ears?” but more of an indie, weird-just-to-be-different way. Just like the bizarre-sounding name would have you presupposing, the Ignatz nominees are an all over the place bunch, ranging from cute and quaint to, “Hey, the Far Side was funny, let’s see what it looks like when drawn horribly and with less humor!” (that would be Callahan Online, by the way).

Still, I’ll see if I can’t convince Steve to take a closer look at them all in an upcoming podcast. The full list, with links, can be found after the break.
