Episode 307 - The Amazing Star-Spider, chapters 1-16

Episode 307: The Amazing Star-Spider, chapters 1-16

Spider-Sense here. I know what you’re thinking, super tracking ain’t my usual gig. But I demanded a bigger role if I was gonna show in this stink-burger. Enjoy my performance! Spider-Sense out.

It's time for a visit to the spider research wing at NYU lab, but there's no sign of Peter Parker at all. Actually, there's no sign of radioactive spiders either, just rare species used for disease research because of how poisonous they are. There aren't any stars either, which is exactly why young Teresa Alovi, after gaining powers from a perfectly normal spider bite, calls herself the Amazing Star-Spider. And there's plenty of star-spidering to be done, since Uncle Ben her mother has been cut down by a purse-snatching Hobgoblin arms dealer. So she sets out to find the D-list Spider-Villain responsible, fighting her way through Spider-Villains so obscure that even Spot would ask "Who?" and accidentally getting mentored a couple of times along the way. So if you want to see someone who's just like Peter Parker doing Peter Parker things, come check out The Amazing Star-Spider!

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!
