We ignore the ever-present MacGuffin, question if anyone still watches their cartoons on Saturday mornings, navigate the expansive white space, shapeshift into some mutha-frickin’ dragons, wyverns, drakes, and raptors with our review of Selena Ahmed’s Talon Hunters in this fiery episode of Digital Strips!
We discuss the designation of bases, decide which is more inept, humans or demons, wonder how awesome it would be under the thumb of a hot, murderous demon witch, reminisce of Buffy episodes long past, and run down our personal preferences of line work with our review of Harry Bogosian’s Demon’s Mirror in this mirror-bombing episode of Digital Strips!
We celebrate the latest from a venerated comics creator, determine the characteristics of cleaning fluids, glean what we can from a foreign land, question the phallus as a trope, and check our rifles one more time with our tank-searching review of Evan Dahm’s The 3rd Voice in this regent-defying episode of Digital Strips!
We take a badly-motivated road trip, execute a revenge-fueled prison break, ride-or-die without seat belts, share our full names, and get by solely on VIBES with our psychically-linked review of HostileCrocodile’s Tropicana Realms in this synthwave-charged episode of Digital Strips!
We view some prairie-dogging rubies, discuss what it means to be super-orphaned, go out in search of the truly hilarious jokes, fight inanimate objects while inebriated, and get to the anal jokes from a unique perspective with our eternally consternated review of Ghosthause’s Greetings from Grisley in this horrifically hilarious episode of Digital Strips!
We crosstalk, clone ourselves like it’s going out of style, think we’ve got this all figured out on our own, protect the increasingly lethargic dog, and turn arms into hams with our surprisingly delicious review of Nonesuch in this dangerously religious episode of Digital Strips!
It’s the start of July, which means that Pride month is now over. But as the rainbow flags are brought down from corporate offices and social media accounts around the world, there’s one part of the internet where you can continue to get your fix of queer-friendly content all year round! Here, friends, are three webcomics you can go on to read right now that continue the theme of Pride month well past June.Continue reading
Ten years ago, Matthew Inman posted a little comic on the internet that got… some popularity. You might have seen it shared by your Auntie Irma on Facebook.
Since then, Inman’s webcomic The Oatmeal has gone from strength to strength. If a decade of internet presence isn’t enough, The Oatmeal also has ten books in print and set crowdfunding records in 2015 for the card game Exploding Kittens. Inman also won the Eisner for Best Digital Comic in 2014 for his unique style which blurs the line between cartoon and infographic.
And now, it looks like Inman has scored himself… a movie deal!Continue reading
Last week when we looked at the Eisner nominations on the podcast and the blog, we noted that one of the webcomics presented was very different in both style and content: The Contradictions by Sophie Yanow.
In the blog last week, we said Yanow’s comic was more reminiscent of an “e-Zine” than a ‘traditional’ webcomic. But what on earth does that even mean?! Today, dear Digital Strippers, we’re going back up the branches of the webcomic family tree and looking at the wild and wonderful world… of Zines.Continue reading
Hitting you hot off the presses of the cultural Zeitgeist, it’s the Digital Strips Blog here with the nominees for the 2019 Eisner awards!…
…two weeks after they were announced!
But tardiness aside, there’s some interesting titles on the block this year. We can’t help but notice, too, that 60% (or, three out of the five) of the offerings in the Webcomics category are hosted on Line Webtoon — but then, the pervasiveness of that ever-expanding hub of Webcomics content is no surprise to erstwhile listeners of the Digital Strips podcast now, is it?
Here, then, are your Eisner Awards 2019 Webcomics Category finalists.Continue reading
