Once again, John is on vacation. Here’s another quick sharpie comic. This one was all John. Not much to say about it.
John’s on vacation week. I probably should have mentioned this earlier, but I forgot. So anyway, we decided to give you something to tide you over until he gets back and drawing. We looked back through our comic ideas that we didn’t use (generally because they’re really stupid) and made them very quickly using a sharpie and a printed out blank comic template. I hope you like...
We love SVU, and this is how we perceive every episode in the series. Now although there is an episode of the show in which the ADA is drunk in the courtroom, that’s not really what we’re saying here. We’re saying every single one of them is awful at her job. The defense uses the most ridiculous arguments ever and the ADA’s are completely incapable of doing anything. If you...
Not a whole lot to say about this one. Most of it comes from a conversation I had with a some of my college friends last weekend. Apparently spending a few hours drinking beer in a pool gets you talking about how to combine Pokemon names with facial hair.
John picked up the HD version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. It’s good, but it just made us want to play our favorite iteration of the series, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3, so we’ve just been playing that instead. Fun Ready Soup fact: John Sampson was originally created as a character in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 when it first came out. The real world John made himself in...
What blonde girl in an eggplant colored Batgirl shirt eating waffles? I don’t know who you could be talking about. all I know is we’re going to put her in as many comics as possible until a certain comics publisher brings her back. I watch a lot of Food Network. It has the odd effect of making want to eat less, most likely because nothing I have in the house is as good as what is on...
I think I’ve written briefly about disappointment about the cancellation and general poor handling of Stephanie Brown’s character before, but in light of her recent replacement in Smallville Season 11, I think it warrants reiteration. The decision to drop Stephanie’s Batgirl book in favor of the one starring Barbara Gordon was absolutely criminal. While the reboot was sold as a...
Now, I haven’t played enough Dragon Quest to say whether or not the gameplay is particularly stale, but it is incredible how much the games look exactly the same. I’m not even being critical of the designers. Really I feel sorry for them. they’ve managed to make a series that allows for no creativity in art style whatsoever. The thing is that the only things that makes a Dragon...
I legitimately had to keep reminding myself that I was not watching lost planet during the new gameplay footage for Dead Space 3. It’s got snow, giant bugs, glowing, orange fluid sacks, and third person shooting. It even has enemy humans that make you wish you were fighting the giant bugs. All it needs is a grappling hook and it would be Lost Planet. Also, the multiplayer cut scenes look...
At some point I stopped just watching Power Rangers and started watching Super Sentai as well. I’m not sure exactly how I started. I was looking for a way to watch the original series, Himitsu Sentai Goranger, but couldn’t find one with subtitles (I still really want to watch it if anyone knows a place to do so). Then at some point I decided to watch Shinkenger (Samurai)...
So we’re still playing Spelunky. We really can’t get enough of this game. What we didn’t realize when we wrote the last comic is that you can actually choose which type of damsel you want to save. It’s a really cool feature to include, especially considering that all of the designs are great. They have the default woman in a red dress, a hunky but helpless man in a speedo...
I you’re not playing Spelunky, you should really change that fact. Aside from the inexplicable decision to not include online multiplayer, it’s one of the finest games I’ve played in a long time. In fact, John and I have been playing it instead of watching Power Rangers after we finish writing. The last game that managed that was Rayman Origins, and that may be my favorite game...
I really can’t imagine the thought process that went into making Guardians of the Galaxy the sequel to The Avengers. It just seems ridiculous to go from the most popular comic book movie ever to something no one has ever heard of. I mean, I know a lot about comics, and I’ve still only heard of Guardians of the Galaxy. I don’t know anything about them. I’ve certainly never...
It doesn’t really explain much, but we read this article before we wrote this comic. It should be noted that both this comic idea and its title went on the bad comic idea list before we decided to use them.
