Read along: Uzumaki by Junji Ito

In this episode, Sly is getting a lot of material for his Uzumaki shonen fan fiction. Ryan changes October to Itober while Phil really just wants to leave town. And Darryl just can’t stop thinking about Kiari from Kingdom Hearts.

Episode 46: Sometimes You Just Gotta Vent About Your Dumb Family’s Dumb Memes

Family sucks, y'all
“Please like, share, and subscribe to beat diabetes”

The world’s on fire again, so we needed a break. What do you want from us? We’re only human! We take a break from the news and/or history and talk about our family again. You know, those people that you can’t stand that just share memes all day about how Irish people were slaves too and Obama’s a Soros puppet who should be in jail? Yeah, those heroes.

In this episode, Ryan gives his strategy to help the police get the public to trust them again. Phil becomes the world’s ultimate inventor. Darryl fears for his life. And Sly sells oil, but great oil that’s very helpful from only the finest snakes.

Also it’s Ryan’s birthday the day this comes out, tell him happy birthday on twitter. @stoopkidliveson

Issue 76: Identity Crisis Part 2 – The Murderer Was… A Plot Hole!

My feelings on Identity Crisis are still so torn
“What if the Elongated Man stretched his way into grittiness?

We finish DC’s mega-event that changed everything, Identity Crisis! Is the ending satisfying? Does it make sense? And why does everyone hate Captain Boomerang?

Check out our last episode, Identity Crisis Part 1, first if you haven’t!

Read along: Brad Meltzer and Rags Morales’ Identity Crisis

In this episode, Ryan struggles to defend why cynicism can be good when it’s in a story he kinda likes. Sly thinks all superheroes look the same. Darryl discovers the most relatable villain. And Phil just can’t help but nitpick plot holes just because they don’t make any sense and hurt the narrative. What a stickler!

Episode 45: You’d Have To Be A Super Delegate to Graduate From The Electoral College!

Elections really showcased what a CREEP Nixon was
Don’t know if I can win this one… better break into the DNC

We’re talking elections! The electoral college! Super delegates! Some of the wackier things that have happened in some historical elections and campaigns!

It’s not a current events episode! This one’s a lot of fun! Ryan graduates from the electoral college. Darryl puts the SUPER in super delegate. Phil wins the popular vote, but loses the election. And I knew Sly’s segment. I worked with Sly’s segment. And this episode is NO Sly’s segment (he does have one, actually).

Issue 75: Identity Crisis Part 1 – Whoops, Cynicism Wins After All

Identity Crisis is polarizing for a reason
“Is his true identity Elongated Man, Plastic Man, or Mr. Fantastic?”

We talk about a book we’ve been awkwardly avoiding for years, DC’s 2004 event: Identity Crisis. This is one of the biggest DC stories we’ve covered and it’s the one that proved just how cynical Alan Moore’s influence was. So we should hate it, right? Well…

Read along: Brad Meltzer and Rags Morales’ Identity Crisis

On this episode, we dip into the first half of Identity Crisis. We’ll finish it next time, don’t worry! Ryan’s a giant hypocrite who likes this book (but WITH ASTERISKS, HE SWEARS). Darryl finally found a superhero story that he doesn’t think is dumb (most of the time). Phil just loves big anime fights. Sly packs this episode with more lore than ever.

Episode 44: Silicon-artist Valley And The Overhyped Brandian Supermen

Silicon Valley? More like silly neocon valley, m i rite
Ain’t no pal o’ mine, that’s for damn sure!

The news is too intense this week, so we picked an evergreen topic to discuss, Silicon Valley. Is it a liberal utopia or a libertarian dystopia? Ryan breaks down why Elon Musk is the Trump of “intellectuals.” Phil talks about just how unethical computer chips are. Sly breaks down one of the biggest and unknown scandals coming from Silicon Valley. And Darryl tells us some of the more bizarre ways workers in California commute and live to support this new age lifestyle.

And yeah, when people say Space X, I hear Space Sex, too. It’s not just you.

Issue 74: The League Of Extraordinary Edgelords

Alan Moore sux lol
Only a true gentleman could ever hope to be a real lord of edge!

Hoo boy, this one’s a rough one. We’re talking about the Original Edgelord of Comics, Alan Moore and his second volume of The League Of Extraordinary Gentleman. This one gets a little intense, so strap yourself in. The Invisible Man, Mr. Hyde, Mina Harker, and Captain Nemo, Allan Quatermain, and some wagon driver all team up to fight aliens! What more could you want?

Comics covered: The League Of Extraordinary Gentleman Volume 2

On this episode, we’re talking Alan Moore, because this book? It ain’t quite Swamp Thing. Ryan has some real issues with this snake god worshiping writer. Sly finally learns the secret way in to the Vermilion City Pokemon gym. Phil’s secret hatred of a beloved book series is exposed. And Darryl rushes to the defense of the neglected monsters of the world.

As always, Edgelord August touches upon some serious themes, like severe violence, and violence against women. But this time, ESPECIALLY.

Episode 43: Alex Jones – Too Hot For YouTube?

Alex Jones is still trash, though.
Ok, Sly’s right. He is handsome.

We’re here to talk about the ball of hot air in the room, Alex Jones. He was just banned from Facebook, YouTube, Spotify, Apple, and we sure do wish the list went on and on. Was it the right thing to do? Is it a violation of free speech? Is the government turning all of the frogs gay?

On this episode, Darryl leads a discussion on the right-wing conspiracy maniac, Alex Jones and what precedents it may or may not set. Sly just wants to talk about Gunns, both of the James and the muscle variety. Ryan tries to strike the balance between capitalism and socialism. And Phil had to move, so he’s not on this episode. Write in and tell us how much you miss him!

Issue 73: Kingsman: The Secret Decent Millar Book

Kingsman is only good on a Millar scale
“A’ight, you wankers, let’s conform to the bourgeoisie.”

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! EDGELORD AUGUST! It’s time to talk about Mark Millar’s Kingsman. So cuckle up, it’s time to go for a ride.

We read Kingsman: The Secret Service by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons

On this episode, we get back to our roots and talk about a Millar book with a better movie adaptation. Sly’s just a wanker running from the billies. Ryan once again falls victim to fake news and revisionist history. Phil min-maxes his build to get all the ladies. Has Darryl finally replaced Nemesis as his favorite Millar book?

As always, Edgelord August touches upon some serious themes, like severe violence, and violence against women.
