Episode 250 - Wings of Gibraltar, Issue 1

Episode 250: Wings of Gibraltar, Issue 1

I think Chase is only peripherally aware of the existence of other people.

From the depths of the ninties comes Wings of Gibraltar, a fanfic totally legit for reals comic about awesome new robots, top secret research bases and the incredibly dull people who develop them. Thrill as Rick Hunter and Max Sterling go on a guided tour and have weapons demonstrated to them! Be amazed as percentages are discussed in detail! Gasp in wonder at the description of a fusion reactor! Hold on to the sedge of your seat as the villain tries to edge the plot along and gives up trying! Check your watch to wonder how much time you’ve lost as you realise this is only a two-issue series! That’s right, if you love lectures about how asteroid mining works, then you might like this!

Episode 249 - The Apocalyptic Battle, chapters 9-10

Episode 249: The Apocalyptic Battle, chapters 9-10

Sending the disposable extras into battle against the unstoppable cosmic horror that already effortlessly defeated them? I see no way that this can go badly at all.

After only three dozen chapters of preamble, The Apocalyptic Battle finally gets down to its central message that it has been building to since day one: Explosions. For in this chapter, everything explodes. Be it buildings, mountains, Evangelions, Japan, the planet Delta X, Random Planet Q, Asuka or entire galaxies, everything in this explodes. In fact, about the only things that don’t are Tom and Xeruel who wail on each other for about a hundred pages or so without actually achieving a thing beyond padding the fic out some more. So watch as the fate of all creation hangs in the balance, Steven doesn’t contribute, Tom gets a new haircut and scale is completely forgotten in the latest chapter of this fanfic-like substance!

November Update

As readers have probably noticed, there's not been much activity over the last couple of weeks. Real Life has been odiously busy, which along with Episode 249 ballooning out of control, has slowed us down a lot. Things are still going, just... slowly for the moment.

Fear not, however! Ep 249 is in progress and hopefully will be done either late this week or early next one. Early work is also in progress on 250 and 251, and we're hoping to have one of them out not too long after 249 is. Finally, we have several more episodes after that in the planning stage with fics selected for them.
