New episode! And it's about space!
 
We're back with an all new full episode after a few weeks off. Like much of the world right now, we were inspired by all that his happening in the void of space right now. So, that's what we talk about––how humanity's reach into the great unknown has inspired the fiction about it.

Though the NASA news has been the result of hard work and dedication, it was surely not as difficult as finally getting Andrew to sit down and watch an episode of Firefly, which finally happened this week.

There's also a Boast of Bethel discussing Lovecraft, Pluto, and the gap between science and art.

We also look forward with this week's question of the week and ask: What was your gateway to geekdom?

A new page is up after a week's break (Long John had some sleeping to do). The notes spend some time discussing how rewarding and difficult it is to write a character who has views and beliefs that you don't (hint: research, research, research). Come back on Thursday for another page!

I guess I should say it now since it's getting hit pretty heavily on this page (even though it hasn't been brought up at all; it's mostly about getting out there before people bring it up), but Lad...

A new Long John page today! At the end of the previous page, Long John went to sleep. So now, naturally, he dreams. Badly. Sorry, Long John; so sorry.

One big motivator for me when I was making the transition from drawing digitally to physically was an artist named Les McClaine. Though he has branched out into print comics and animation now, I fo...

New Long John page! Spoiler alert: Long John goes to sleep. Quiet, but necessary after the long, arduous day he has had. Since page 1, this has all taken place on the same day so far. So, Long John definitely needs some good, old-fashioned shut-eye.

This was a page that I bounced back and forth about including for awhile. After thinking about it, however, I feel like after the day Long John has had, the narrative thread that can be closed with...

New #longjohncomic page is up! long John gets taught a lesson (and this chapter gets a name-drop).

This is a case where the comic will do most of the talking this week. For the sake of clarification, Lady May belongs to (as does Johnny Mono, one-third of Long John's pre-comic posse) what is clas...

Another new page is up and plot happens!

In the page notes, I discuss what happens when, even after scanning a page, I realize that a panel is just not up to snuff.

To get a little nerdy, the title of this page is accurate (from the research I did) to how the phrase "Worst comes to worst" was used in 1881, despite the fact that "Worse comes to worst" is commonly used now (for good reason, it makes more sense grammatically), but that shift didn't really happen until the 20th century (shout-out to the OED).

This page was a fun exercise in a variety of ways. Obviously, I play with format and layout, but more happened behind the scenes than may be immediately visible to the average reader. First and for...

There will be a new page tomorrow! In the notes, I discuss the work of Les McClaine, but mostly about this amazing Lovecraftian-styled noir webcomic he did called "32 Exposures." It's not the safest for work, so be warned, but it is amazing. Check it out!

New episode and it's all about death! Sorry, didn't mean to sound so excited. We talk about a Star Trek: The Next Generation episode, death and defeat in gaming, and an animated movie about robots that is nothing but death and murder. 

After this episode, we're going to be taking a few weeks off, but we will update weekly with some shortcasts to keep your fix satiated.

Until then, enjoy episode 56!

New episode!
 
This new episode will hit you like a punch to the face! Not really, but we do talk about violence in gaming as well as the passing of James Horner.

Considering the topic, we ask you: what is your favorite fighting game and why?

Wanna be on a podcast (sorta)?
 
What has been your favorite DLC to date and why? 

Andrew discussed Alan Wake's DLC episode called "The Writer," and Dan mentioned Mass Effect 3's "Citadel." Both story-based DLC, but that's only the tip of the iceberg.

Your answer may be read on the next episode!
