Culture Minisode :: Webcomics and OneUps

Posted by Hex on January 15, 2011

Wow!! Two culture minisodes back-to-back?! Hope this release doesn’t conflict with your polo match. Think of these as the fine  Hopefully we can crank out more of these hors d’orderves for you to devour before the main course.

SPEAKING OF DEVOURING, many apologies to a certain reptilian comic for playing off of their shtick for this minisode’s imagery, but I couldn’t help myself! As the image reveals, in this ‘cast, we talk a lot on webcomics, discussing quite a bit with Nerdy Show’s own webcomicoholic, Tony Baldini – Mr. Nerdy Strip himself. We also get a chance to chat with the great Mustin, Video Game Remix Legend and frontman to the most dynamic video game cover band ever, the OneUps. How’s this for posh? – In this episode we’ve got an EXCLUSIVE track from their album,  due to drop on the 18th!!

As always, this is quite a listen :)

    I haven’t finished listening to this episode yet, but I am loving it! I too am a webcomic junkie, although I have been attempting to trim my habits.I currently following roughly 70 webcomics, with a further 25 finished, and 4 that are on a hiatus or have not yet started. I use to obsessively save every comic while I was at university so I could continue to enjoy them when I went home to dail-up during workterms or breaks, I I don’t do that know for the most part.

    Well. Finally a webcomic episode. I’ve got a bookmarks bar with about 30 comics in it myself, good to know I’m not the only one.

    If I might mention some of my favorites, I’m a big fan of the rpg comics, like long(ish) runners order of the stick and darths and droids. Also, some new ones that have been looking good are weregeek and guilded age. And I’ve got to mention girl genius. Read that if you like steam punk, or just enjoy well made stories with interesting characters. My dad, who is an old-fashioned nerd who doesnt take to these newfangled nerdy things, enjoys girl genius. It’s that good.

    Was surprised that you mentioned axe cop and didn’t bring up dr.mcninja, the two did a colab recently that was great.

    Other than that, good episode and I’ll have to look into the new One ups album, looks cool.

    Also, you guys should probably read gutters. Just saying.

    Ah! Good to see that you’re really branching on the subjects for the Culture Minisodes. I’m not much of a webcomic addict myself, barely following three (Order of the Stick, Erfworld, Dark Legacy). Of course, there was 8-Bit Theater, and that should go down in history.

    I, for one, would have loved to see El Goonish Shive included in the list. Good site. A little weird, perhaps. But good.
