Let It Snow

On this webcomics episode, the last of 2018, Sean and Derek get into the holiday spirit. They discuss three titles that concern Christmas or the winter season (i.e., has the word “snow” in the title). They begin with Leonardo Faierman and Marcus Kwame Anderson’s Snow Daze, a narrative about a group of enterprising teenagers in Queens, NY, who create a business shoveling snow, all the while dealing with the challenges of urban life, especially as it concerns matters of race. After that the guys look at another snow-related webcomic, Snow by Night, written by Eric Menge and with primary art by Julie A. Wright and Brittany Michel. This is a fantasy inspired by French colonial culture in North America, and largely revolves around a manitou, a nature spirit of the wilderness, who quests to find her “heart.” Finally, Derek and Sean turn to a quite different webcomic, one created by the Blizzard Entertainment corporation to supplement one of their popular video games. Michael Chu and Miki Montlló’s Overwatch: Reflectionsis a Christmas story involving the character Tracer as she attempts to find a last-minute gift and (predictably enough) learns the true meaning of the season.

Reviews: Hookjaw #1, Justice League vs. Suicide Squad #1, Power Man and Iron Fist Vol 3 Sweet Christmas Annual #1, Doctor Who Christmas Special

Jimmy has to fly solo this week since everyone is still away for Christmas! But he got the December co-host Jon Hoche and frequent co-host Emmy Potter to send in some audio reviews. No news as it was one of those slow news weeks due to the holidays. It was also a sad week in our world with the loss of pop icon Carrie Fisher. Many friends/listeners sent in their tributes/thoughts on it all. Thanks to Carrie, Kerri, Rachel, Emily, Emmy, Adam/Comfort, Rebecca, Qui, Shena, Erica, Katelan, Sina, Vera and Marta! I know many others wanted to as well and I thank you. Carrie Fisher was a legend and we all miss her. Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love! Also, get a hold of us!
