Issue 300-B – Delving Deep

One more week of Best-Ofs before the show returns. But still good stuff as we bring out the annual lesson of consent, cosplay, and being a good nerd (or, you know, human) with Merrick and Kaebel of Sequential Art Gallery. Then, an old school Fun With Race that broke Pwn. And finally, serious Superman and Power Rangers talk with Mikey Neilson and Big Jim.

Kickstarter Time – Dark Anna and the Pirates of Kadath!

Hello everyone, Aaron here. Not a standard post about the podcast, but instead I wanted to talk about my new (and first) Kickstarter project… Dark Anna and the Pirates of Kadath.

DARK ANNA AND THE PIRATES OF KADATH is a creator-owned comic book series that brings together swashbuckling pirate adventure with the dark mythology of Cthulhu. Written by Aaron Duran and illustrated by Ethan Slayton, DARK ANNA is the tale of a fierce pirate captain who uses the blade, the gun, and the spell to brave a distant, nightmare world – all to have her revenge against those who wronged her.

DARK ANNA AND THE PIRATES OF KADATH follows Captain Anna as she’s driven from her native lands to a place far more sinister and alien. Charting a course down waters human eyes were never meant to see, Captain Anna will master arcane secrets and spellcraft as she leads her crew to their day of reckoning. This fearsome pirate vessel and her crew will have their just reward, or lose their lives – and their immortal souls – trying.

Inspired by the real-life saga of Captain Christiana Anna Skytte, a 17th century Swedish royal who would go on to commandeer her own pirate vessel before vanishing on the Baltic Sea, DARK ANNA AND THE PIRATES OF KADATH is a high fantasy exploration of why this master marauder was lost to the history books. Fans of Conan the Barbarian, The Wake, or Northlanders should not miss out on this epic tale that crosses the high seas and sails deep into the realm of Lovecraftian nightmares.

Why Dark Anna?

Because the story of Christina Anna Skytte is one that needs to be told. For too long has this intriguing woman been lost to the pages of history. There is no better way to bring her back into the light than by casting her into a sea of horrors and adventure within HP Lovecraft’s little-used Dreamlands setting. It doesn’t matter if you’re a fan of high seas adventure, deadly monsters, or dark magics – DARK ANNA AND THE PIRATES OF KADATH is the comic for you. Captain Anna is sailing soon. Will you join her crew and sail under the blood red flag?

How Can You Join the Crew?

You can back DARK ANNA AND THE PIRATES OF KADATH at any level that feels comfortable and feasible. You can also help spread the word of this project to your friends, family, or anyone that loves pirates, sea monsters, and action in a slightly darker setting. We’re asking just enough to compensate the people that help make this book a reality. As well as production and shipping costs once the project is funded. If we raise more than our target goal, well, that would surpass our wildest dreams. And to that end, we have special stretch goals in place for those dreams. Kickstarter really has ushered in a new and fantastic era in comics. Please help us in continuing this bold new era of publishing and as Captain Anna says… NO QUARTER!*

*That’s some old time pirate speak for not showing a lick of mercy. Ever. Just think of all the awesome pirate phrases you’ll learn if you back DARK ANNA AND THE PIRATES OF KADATH!

You can learn more at the Dark Anna and the Pirates of Kadath KICKSTARTER.

Thank you!

Issue 299 – The One Where We Forgot The Title

Greetings Programs. The opening goes right off the rails when most of the crew is already tired. Things get lively when Dan calls Aaron wrong for not liking Encounter at Farpoint. Which kicks off Bean’s all new The Next Trekucation with The Measure of a Man. Then the crew looks at the all new Jem and the Holograms comic from IDW. All that and talking about Snakes on a Plane. No, really…
