Digital Strips Podcast 267 – Review – Velia, Dear

Hey people of the Internet. Stop putting punctuation in the name of your webcomics. It makes my show titles look weird. Can’t you see what you’re doing to me? I’m looking at you Miss Beaton.

This week’s episode is a hard one for me to post. Not because of any emotional thing that happened during it’s production or that the comic was painfully bad (quite the opposite, in fact) but because I come across as a raging butt-munch.

Normally, if either of us somethings like a turd-burglar with cheese, it’s Jason, and I’m totally down with publicly shaming him for his own good. But me? I don’t see how I can learn from this. I’m just posting it in the hopes that you find my dilweed-hood entertaining.

This week we’re taking a look at the cross-generational gag-a-day comic, Velia, Dear by Rina Piccalo. We discuss whether or not very newspapery strips work in webcomics if they use dirty words and how an art style can make you feel at home, even in Canada.

We cover tons of news, lots of stuff we’ve been reading, the happiness of a new comics’ birth and the sadness of their retirement, love, death and horchata all on this episode of Digital Strips.
