I like pajamas, I like forests. This comic seemed to be the natural progress from that.

You know a comic must be good if we recommend it even though it has more male nudity than female.

I had a pet pig when I was growing up and my wife looks hot in pigtails, maybe that's why I like this strip so much. Then again, it may just be that good. Check it out for yourself to find out.

DS 155 Review - Order of Tales We're without Brigid this time but what could have easily devolved into a pit of naming calling a fart noises turned out instead to be a total love fest. Not towards each other mind you, that would be gross. Rather instead we focus out affection on Evan Dahm's amazing web comic Order of Tales.

Three more new strips for everyone this week. This time around, everyone of them just shines in the art department, but in its own special way. As for over all qaulity, the opinions vary. Tune in to hear what we think about One Swoop Fell, Ellie Connelly and Bear Nuts.

10 comics on one side, three critics on the other. What more could you possibly want? It's the October 2008 edition of Digital Strips Zuda Watch.

Rather than take one creator and crush their soul we figured, hey why not crush three souls. This is a new monthly feature where we'll recommend some strips that we like but are still too young to get a full review. Because some times a strip just is what it is.

One a very special Zuda watch, we learn a whole lot about Midnight. It turns out he's a sensitive man who loves his grandmother and vampires. He's a powerful defender of decency and is not afraid to admit when he is very very wrong. Tune in and we all grow closer together and tear down both emotional walls, and the egos of various Zuda creators.

We also see that Steve doesn't get dirty names very often. Like at all. Even the obvious ones.

Sad Robots. Sad Dinosaurs. Sad Stick Figures. We haven't review this much sad black and white stuff since Pictures for Sad Children. This show takes on The Robot is Sad by Tam Nguyen of The Daily Cougar.

Wow what a show. I don't think I've ever heard the words "pedophile" and "wiener" used so much in a half hour podcast before. And yet here it is. The strip that inspired such bawdy language was Captain Excelsior, a strip that combines the efforts of two experienced creators. Does this super hero have the power to entertain? Or to move you? Tune in to find out.

Further proof that the world is coming to the end, Jason and Steve do a whole review of a comic featuring topless women without having the whole show be about boobs. Maybe Brigid really is bringing some class this place.

During this years WCCA's there were two strips that cleaned housed: Lackadaisy which we reviewed a while back and all loved, and Octopus Pie which we're reviewing now. Will it also recieve total affection? Tune in now, (or later, when you have time, that's kind of the beauty of podcasting) to find out.

This month the Zuda competitors are all returnees from previous rounds. The doubly long comics allowed for us to really see what these creators had, or didn't have. When it's good it's very good. When it bad it very bad. Not much apathy from this crop.

This week we take a look at and give our opinions on the Eisner Award nominees for the Best Digital Comic category. We take on The Abominable Charles Christopher,  Immortal, The Process, Panda Xpress! and Sugarshock.

Then we get in to what criteria comics should be judged by and give the strips we think should have been nominated, but weren't.

Another month, another Zuda competition and of course, another Zuda Watch. This month's crop is strong for the most part, but that doesn't mean we won't put them all in their place.

There is an abundance of strips out there but it seems the people who got together and created Koallawallop know some hidden secret. This is the third strip we’ve reviewed from the group and so far it’s simplicity only goes to make this a fantastic story. Here’s what Steve and Jason have to say about it.

This will be the first in a series of podcasts to take advantage of summer vacation. Here we have one of my favorite drawn strips in a long time. Join us as we explore this vampire version of Romeo and Juliet. Actually everyone is already dead so we can’t be romantic, we’ll just have to settle for vengence.

In this episode we talk about:
