Mr. Chris (from Playing with Props) joins Ben Carver and Fes Works for another newscast edition of The Webcomic Beacon! Comic news and discussion mostly includes a discussion about fair use, and how to meet your heroes. Very full episode for a return Webcomic Beacon of the newscast kind!
Today on the show, Dan builds a robot in his closet, Breanne puts a spin on the classic swear jar, Mat realises he doesn’t have any hobbies, and Mat’s Mom steals a car while filling in for Fish, who is away in Mexico, getting it on with several different men.
No show notes (as we had no actual show notes). Video releases, and we just kind of winged it the rest of the time! We do talk about the new iPad 5G, beer, a bit about Midwest FurFest, but mostly random stuff.
Today on the show, Mat sings a song he’s never heard, Breanne makes it just in time to watch a bird explode, Dan has no shame in participating in illegal activities, and Fish is a pirate, yar har fiddle di dee. Also, we mourn the death of MSN Messenger and watch Raiders of the Lost Ark.
The Webfiction World podcast presents a reading of Berlin Confidential (chapter 1), A Supernatural Noir and Online Penny Dreadful; written by A. Scott & E. Cowles, and read by Kara Dennison.
Ok! The last webcomic review until January 2014. A new request for submissions for review requests will be put out in mid-December. The next “trial run” will incorporate a podcast version and/or video version, in addition to the article itself. We’ll see how that works out.
So, a quick heads-up about the Webcomic Beacon Reviews, Trial Run. There will be one more after this, and then December will only have Comic of the Week picks. We will open for another round of review submissions in December, for a new bout to start in January.
Clearly not safe for work, and not so much a comic that is like any other. This is a sort of review comic… for sex toys. We should have expected this come from no one else. Erika manages to bring her own journal style of cartooning, with her passion for sexual content, into one incredibly informative comic.
Welcome to the experimental, Monthly Press Release post! I don’t promise that all submitted press releases will be posted on these, but we’ll see how this will go. For now, we’ll be playing around with assorted press releases, including book releases.
While there are many ways to contribute to the WCBN and its shows, including submitting your own original article, one can also submit promotional information via Press Releases. While I would encourage everyone to read the entire FAQs page first, I’ll give a quick overview on what we are looking at.
I wanted to give a recap about the webcomic reviews trial run, as well as plans about the future of them; but I also wanted to clarify rules about emailing us. Mostly for organizational purposes, but also to keep spam down, and avoid passive aggressiveness.
