This month Sean and Derek offer a genre buffet of webcomics goodness. They begin with Jay D’Ici and Matt G. Gagnon’s Conceptual Heist, a heist narrative with a unique science fiction twist. As the guys reveal, the story is solid, and the black-and-white art, accentuated with a monochromatic blue, suggests a noir tone. After that they discuss a highly popular webcomic that has been around since 2008, Gisele Lagace and David Lumsdon’s Ménage à 3. Derek and Sean describe this as a cross among Strangers in Paradise, Archie, and the TV series Three’s Company…but more suggestive and explicit than the latter. While the guys can see the appeal of this thrice-weekly strip, they nonetheless feel that reading its various narrative arcs over a more concentrated time period — as opposed to experiencing this story as its pages are released — doesn’t necessarily work in the webcomic’s favor. Finally, the guys wrap up with fun completed webcomic from Chris A. Bolton and Kyle Bolton, Monstrous. This is a mini-story within their Smash world, one that the Bolton brothers completed between their earlier work, Smash: Trial by Fire, and the next Smash book that will be published through Candlewick Press.
Jim and Eric jump into the New 52 with Volume 1 of the Justice League. Is it the Origin that we want, or just the one we deserve? This episode is a review and discussion of the Justice League Vol 1: Origin which includes the New 52 Justice League issues 1-6. Enjoy!
Jim and Eric record all week long and present the fruits of their labor. Eric seems to love the Justice League book and doesn’t understand google while Jim hated Odyssey of the Amazons and only washes his hands 98% of the time after going to the bathroom. There is also a possibility that someone thinks Eric is smoking pot in his apartment. Oh yea, they also talk about all the DC books that came out this week except He-Man/Thundercats #6 which will be on the show next week…Enjoy!
In Warlord Worlds Episode 14 we cover The Warlord #33-34, Jon Sable #21, and Green Arrow #25-26 which features a story set in Sherwood Forest, plus the Legion of Super-Heroes #206-207 by Mike Grell with guests Mike Lane of Comics in the Golden Age and Jeff Messer of the Geek Brain Popcast.

Jim, Eric and Reggie check out this week’s DC Comics and prepare for war! Yep, Eric’s neighbor is at it again, but they get past that to review everything, talk nonsense and have a ton of…well, they try to have fun. How can Eric have fun with all the continuity problems in Green Lanterns? The answer: He can’t! They do like a bunch of books this week, including…JUSTICE LEAGUE! Enjoy
