We at Digital strips know you all follow a LOT of webcomics. Besides the ones that Steve and Jason bring us every week on the podcast, there’s the old favourites we cling to dearly year after year, and the newest, most exciting thing we find crossing our social media feed every day.
So, it’s easy for us to let our schedule of checking in on some of those favourites slip every now and then.
The problem is, sometimes that means we’re going to be away for some big announcements. Often that’s okay, as we can always dive back through the archives and catch up. But sometimes those things we miss have some very specific deadlines — like Kickstarter drives, limited print runs, personal appearances or other short-term opportunities.
We don’t want you to miss out, so we’re starting a new segment on the blog called the ‘Saturday Shoutout’. Each week, we’ll be featuring something that’s going on in the webcomics world with a deadline you’re not going to want to miss. And with the whole weekend ahead of you, there’s no better time to cruise on over and take advantage of the opportunity!
Do you, our valued listeners, believe it is ok for Steve to have a strong interest in the goings-on of the world of Disney princesses? Neither do I, and that argument is the crux of our first segment. Oh, and Steve is nice enough to keep us relatively on track with a comic recommendation as well:
STRIPPEDÂ (10:03), the comics documentary by Dave Kellett and Fred Schroeder
Alright, it’s time for the fight. What better fight anthem to roll us into the fracas than the theme to Mortal Kombat 3, remixed by The Dual Dragon (Mortal Konfrontation, 11:15). Of course, if you want to just get back to the action, the second segment starts at 12:52.
If you’ve been checking out this Book Club, you know that Steve is the veteran with Order of the Stick and also the bigger fan of the two of us. I am excited to finally be reading this long-running, very popular webcomic for myself, if only to form my opinion about it based on actually experiencing the story. That said, Steve and I rarely agree on anything this comic does, which makes for an interesting conversation. Listen in, won’t you?
