In this episode the ladies asked their social media followers: What's your excuse? What is keeping you from taking those first baby steps towards making comics? While the title of the episode is cheeky, we fully understand there are a ton of very valid reasons people are hesitant to make comics, or decided to never try. So we're gonna talk about the answers we got! And maybe get a little political. And talk about old witches in the woods who hoard anime titties.
In this episode we discuss a trope/cliche and how we feel about it. This is a new series we're doing, with plans to touch on numerous tropes/cliches in future episodes.
Due to the nature of the subject, this is a VERY SPOILER-Y episode. Here's a (not comprehensive) list of stories we spoil:

- Magic Knight Rayearth
- Jupiter Ascending
- 2 Discworld stories
The ladies answer more listener mail! We talk about a great many things, from the illustrious career of Alex Toth to the masterpiece that is Jupiter Ascending*

Sorry for the weird schedule! Editor has been busy with a lot. We're returning to normal now, with early Patreon eps resuming next week to keep us on a recognizable schedule.
This episode was also kind of a pain to edit, as poor Spike was sick and forgot to put her headphones on, so the echo coming from her speakers had to be edited out as best as possible. It was time consuming, and mostly successful -- there was some choppiness especially at the end.
In this episode we discuss a question we get asked a lot: where do your ideas come from as a comic maker? One of our more casual recordings, if you're into that.

WE'RE BACK, IT'S BEEN SO LONG! We sound different this time, there's been some recording changes, and more are coming. In this episode, we play catch up and talk about what we've been up to since the last episode.
