Unnamed Journal 25 – Rabbit Gets the Gun

We’ve got Swords, Sorcery, and Pirates in The Skeleton King, codes of cat combat in Catakure, A morning of yogurt and pan-dimensional alien invasions in Ale-Man Blues, and Ghost Raid, a mystical take on a Western standard.

This is an experimental issue of sorts. Skeleton King is a Tygg and Drea story, but I tried some other moves with it, kept the action pretty streamlined. Catakure: Combat is also the return of a series. But with Ale-Man Blues I definitely played around with meta-structure. A bit brain-twisty, according to our art director. Ghost Raid injects fantasy elements into the Western genre, but keeps it pretty grounded by putting the natives at the center. It’s a good start to our new volume.

New Shallow & Pedantic Podcast: Brust & Leiber

Trifles of the King Shallow & Pedantic

We have a series of agreements about film adaptations of Arthurian Legend, beginning with The Green Knight and ending with John Boorman's Excalibur, which is objectively the best King Arthur movie. You can disagree, but you're wrong.
  1. Trifles of the King
  2. Teenage Dungeon Vampire Space Pirates
  3. Punk Rock's Dead Mix Tape
  4. Kevin Smith is Henry Rollins
  5. Würrk, Dåmmit, or Let's Do the Goth Dance Again

As you can see from the episode list, this is our longest episode to date. We ramble along quite nicely, thanks to some excellent porter, and give Stephen Brust and Fritz Leiber some shout-outs for being creative, witty worldbuilders and writers. We’re also up on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Deezer, and YouTube, with iHeartRadio pending.
