Episode 306 - Robotech the Sentinels Rubicon #1

Episode 306: Robotech the Sentinels Rubicon #1

So far, the message of this comic seems to be 'Bright light that goes EEEEEEE.'

If you like high-concept Sci-Fi about man’s conformation with the unknown and incomprehensible, then you’re definitely reading the wrong book. But if you want to be bludgeoned by an incoherent mess about stuff being exploded by a white light in space that goes “EEEEE” then your dream has come true. Robotech: The Sentinels Rubicon may share it’s title with an already existing novel, but it’s content has no connection to any prior published material and, mercifully, none that would follow either. Instead what it does have is the world’s most confusing poker game, space strippers, miscellaneous aliens, spaceships (which explode), giant robots (which also explode), somebody called Featherhead, somebody called JC and/or Lancer and some very awkward dialogue. It’s the mass of process wood pulp that the fans demanded!

Episode 305 - AYNGEL Project, chapters 3-4

Episode 305: AYNGEL Project, chapters 3-4

His wife had wanted him to take up gardening but oh no, he had to go and build an omnipotent evil conspiracy bent on reshaping all mankind.

Warning: Contains explicit sex

Because AYNGEL Project hadn’t found enough ways to offend you yet, here’s some more quality material from our alleged heroes, Tom and Steve. Fresh from a round of blowing up Angels and destroying secretive conspiracies, the pair of them take time out to get drunk, get stoned, verbally abuse their best friend and generally be even more unlikeable then you’d think possible. But the real focus of these two slabs of text that call themselves chapters is Hiditio and ensuring that he is humiliated and degraded in every way possible to a point that you’ll be glad when he gets killed off in a car park. Throw in some badly written sex, almost silly violence, random drug testing and a genuinely creepy attempt to depict a romantic relationship and you have the latest part in this self-indulgent chat-room derived oddesey!

Episode 304 - Dreamstar and the Court Of Dreams: The Gathering of Dreams, chapter 7 and The Dark Warrior

Episode 304: Dreamstar and the Court Of Dreams: The Gathering of Dreams, chapter 7 and The Dark Warrior

Sure she stripped him, drugged him, revealed his secret identity and broke into his hideout, but she wrote him a note afterwards, and that's what matters.

A mysterious new vigilante has come to Gotham city, vexing Batman at every turn. Everywhere she goes, questions follow in her wake. Where does she come from? What does she want? Who thought the Dark Warrior was a good codename anyway? Why is she wearing high heels? And why is she sniffing Batman's underwear? Even Batman's advanced investigation technique of asking her the same question over and over again cannot prevail. Still, there's villains to fight (for some reason) a party to attend (for even less reason) and a model to woo who is TOTALLY NOT THE SECRET IDENTITY OF THE DARK WARRIOR SO STOP ASKING ALREADY. There may also be magical girls, some ancient scrolls, and a bad-arse drill sergeant cat, but definitely not Tim.

Episode 303 - Warrior Nun Areala and Glory - GOD and COUNTRY

Episode 303: Warrior Nun Areala and Glory - GOD and COUNTRY

She's here to kick arse and take communion!

When you're engaged in a legal battle over the ownership of intellectual property, there are a number of things that you can do to improve your case. Collaborating on a comic where you depict your opponent as a demon worshipper who sold his soul and spills the blood of innocents in exchange for popularity isn't one of them, but that's exactly what happens in this thing written and drawn by Ben "Obvious Nun Fetish" Dunn with assistance from Rob "Obvious Pouch Fetish" Leifeld. None the less, that's exactly what you get as Areala (Leather clad nun with a sword) and Glory (Chinese bootleg Wonder Woman) go to a con and fight deadly foes like booth queues, the concession stand and Jason, a twelve year old kid that you'll want to smack the instant you meet and yet is vital to the whole mess. Features very little God and almost no country! Diesel!

Episode 302 - AYNGEL Project, chapters 1-2

Episode 302: AYNGEL Project, chapters 1-2

Enemies are attacking the city. Time for me to have a shower, a full breakfast and then go for my morning jog.

What is the AYNGEL Project? We’re not sure, but we’d wager it has nothing to do with binge drinking, Nine Inch Nail Nails songs, Super-Sayajins, Ranma cameos, nonspecific numbers of suddenly appearing soldiers, shades of lavender, disproportionally interesting grey-haired girls or St. Puppy’s Hospital for Adorable Orphans. What we do know is that it’s connected to Tom Effing Dyron and the incomprehensible cosmic horror known as Steven. That’s right, it’s another in-joke laden RP-derived mess from the genius authors of Delta Invasion and The Apocalyptic Battle, dedicated to showing how our two protagonists are actually horrible human beings. You’ll laugh (probably not) cry (definitely) and want to bury giant robots in the sand as our two alleged heroes insult each other, engage in naked wrestling, mock entirely reasonable authority and kill hundreds of innocents all in the name of good fun. Guaranteed 100% Matt-free!

Episode 301 - Esper Chronicles

Episode 301: Esper Chronicles

He'd subjected them all to the Turing test to be sure. A couple of them flunked and had to re-sit it the next semester.

The adventures of Kyrind Brandford Locke Sommerville continue begin in Esper Chronicles, the sequel prequel replacement something to Tales of the Red Knight Saber! After spending a hard day of staring blankly at a rock with a minor side in exploding robots with his brain, alleged hero and sometimes police officer Locke heads out to a Chinese restaurant so he can enjoy seventeen hours of interminable Ranma cameos while using his incredible powers to invade everyone’s privacy without their knowledge and consent. But it’s not all fun and games as Largo comes back from the dead and unveils some secret plan that involves hotel renovations while Sylia recounts the times she fought Zoanoids and fanfics based on fanfics contradict other fanfics based on fanfics. All this plus a kind of sort of appearance from some guy called Bert that is both minor and regrettable at the same time!

Episode 300 - Tales of the Red Knight Saber

Episode 300: Tales of the Red Knight Saber

They ended up outsourcing the Esper Killing Department to Consultant who spent millions of the company's money on research before finally suggesting that Genom should just build a bigger killer robot.

Not content to be a leering creep of a supporting character, Mackie Stingray decides to be the hero of the story in this vintage fanfiction masterpiece. Suddenly transformed into a six foot tall bike-riding try-hard badarse with the power to kill people with his brain and his own super hardsuit that's better than everyone else's to boot, Mackie sets out to do vaguely defined stuff with no clear goal. But he's not the only author proxy in town, as a run in with super-powered dude Kyrind Brandford and his power to tear killer robots in half like they were made out of ice cream attests! (Whether he can tear them in half like they were made out of other soft desserts remains unproven as yet) Throw in a generic villain returning from the dead, a vague semblance of a plot, unlikeable god-mode OCs borrowed from other fanfics and nearly one hundred soldier, and you have the re-edited thing that is Tales of the Red Knight Saber.
