Digitalstrips's Podcast
Bring the 5% of webcomics worth reading to the rest of the world. The Digital Strips blog provides coverage of the webcomic community with news and commentary from our crack team of reporters. It consists of reviews of webcomics, with the occasional interview, round-table discussions, and general advice on how to create and run a webcomic.

Finally, an episode you can really sink your teeth into! After Steve and Jason hash out the details on Fangr, their new dating app for vampires, they invite you in to listen to their review of Bree Paulsen's Patrik the Vampire. At times both full of slapstick and heart, Patrik is a story that can do it all, and while jumping from timeline to timeline, no less. Listen to the review and then read the whole, engrossing story thus far.

J. Alice Bown's Damsels Don't Wear Glasses is a compelling read, with visuals that compliment and amplify a fun, kinetic story. Jason called across the pond to have a chat with Alice, learning about her process and experiences creating a webcomics for over a decade and how it's shaped her abilities from writing to encompassing everything needed to tell a good and convincing comic story.

It's time to save the world from ... something, and we've got our psychic blades ready to ... do something, I guess? We don't feel incredibly motivated to fight evil after reading J. Alice Bown's Damsels Don't Wear Glasses, but we certainly dig the vibe that Lave and company are putting out into the world. The comic has a visual style all its own that shows a clear delineation between the "real" world and the magical one. Get off the couch and don't sleep through this one!

The first episode on the other side of our first 600 takes a look at Urban Animal, a comic on Webtoons from a talented team who took inspiration from everything from Filipino folklore to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and created a great tale of teenagers transforming into animals. Jason prefers John Hughes-type lame parents to the cool mom and dad in this comic, but Steve is just concerned the libido of a wolf might be more than a young man/chimera can handle.
