So, real talk, we’ve been webcomic fans for over a decade now (pre-Strip Search, even!), and were only too happy to dive into the artists that have made an impact on our lives. We start off by pimping the works of the wonderful Strip Search gang, and then talk about our experiences finding comics and artists that really spoke to us.
Which is kind of the magic of webcomics, you know? You get to find artists that really speak to you, rather than trying to identify with this Sunday’s edition of… I don’t know, let’s say Robotman.
The show dives into our love of slice of life stripes (like the aforementioned Girls With Slingshots), talks about the hilarious specificity of Kate Beaton, and discusses the prolific nature of Kris Straub. It’s a webcomic lovefest! Then, we wrap up with Brian and Chris recommending webcomics to each other, which is sure to be a treat for anyone out there. Anyone looking to expand their webcomic-reading horizons. Which should be everyone.
