We got a Spike-heavy episode for ya, where she recounts her first year of distribution for her publishing company! 

Jan 14, 2018

The ladies discuss changes with Patreon as it relates to comic artists, the introduction of Kickstarter's competing platform Drip. And maybe a Nintendo character's butthole? Sorry not sorry.

Jan 8, 2018

When we recorded this episode, Spike was in England, so we invited a guest on the show: Mildred Louis! Since all three of us make or plan to make magical girl comics, we decided to talk about that very thing.

You can find Mildred's comic here:

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.

Oct 19, 2017

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:

- Harry Potter
- Magic Knight Rayearth
- Jupiter Ascending
- 2 Discworld stories

Aug 31, 2017

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*

Join us!


*a contested fact

Aug 21, 2017

This episode may be a bit dry, but its very educational! The ladies discuss this summer's American Library Association conference and how is may or already has affected their careers as publishers.

Jul 27, 2017

The ladies discuss climbin' that convention ladder -- from their first cons to their worst cons, and their lists of demands.

Jul 13, 2017

In this episode the ladies talk about censorship, editing, self-editing, and go on some tangents about why white people fear the robot uprising and how TV show ratings for kids work. WE HAD FUN.

Jun 29, 2017

In this episode we talk about SELF-PROMO! Join our hosts, one of which has The Con Crud and the other broke her butt riding a bicycle. It's a long ep!


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.

May 31, 2017

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.

Minor content warning: During the course of discussion, rape as a cheap and exploitative story-telling element is discussed.

May 10, 2017

The ladies discuss their experiences making and prepping books for printing, sprinkled with a little advice, with a dash of blatant unrepentant product placement.

Apr 27, 2017

In this episode, the ladies discuss Comixology -- what it is, and how to use it!

Feb 2, 2017

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.

Next episode will be our recordings from the floor of SPX comics back in September!

Sep 9, 2016

Note: This episode was recorded way back in January, and it shows.


In this new episode we talk PACING comics... aaaaand other things, since we were terrible and had a hard time staying on track, lol. 

Sep 1, 2016

Note: This episode has a special guest, Amanda's cat, who yelled in the background in a way that couldn't be edited out. She has a lot of important opinions about comics, y'all.

Today's episode is about doing comics Full-time vs Part-time, pros and cons of both, and our experiences. Plus we dunk on some dumb fallacies, and reveal ourselves to be the worst girl gang.

Aug 18, 2016

Whoops sorry for getting busy again, but we have a backlog of episodes recorded. Today's episode was recorded a few months ago, so there are some audio footnotes at the end.

In Episode 20 we talk about our experiences publishing porn with our special guest Erika Moen!

May 14, 2016

Production note: For the first 10 minutes, Spike sounds like she's in a tin can. This is a problem we've since fixed, but there was no way to up the quality this time. Sorry!

We're back! For real! In this episode we answer some listener mail and talk about, among other subjects, pitches, taxes, impostor syndrome, and a subject of seething, passionate disgust.

See you next week! Also be sure to see Amanda and Kel at Vancaf!

Jan 22, 2016

In this episode we loosen our ties and get comfy while we talk about taking care of yourself, at home and at conventions. Should you bathe from head to toe in lemon-scented antibacterial hand sanitizer? The jury is split.

Jan 1, 2016

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Today's episode is about making and selling merchandise, specifically with conventions in mind.

Mentioned in this episode:

Some behind-the-scenes for this episode: Spike was late to recording, so when we started, Amanda was high. That's why they are both fired. We had a good run!

... but for real, see y'all in 2016 with more episodes!

Dec 22, 2015

Come, friends, listen to us informally shoot the shit about scripting comics, featuring special guest host: Amanda's barely-audible but no-less-distracting cat, Meato.

Dec 21, 2015

In a special live-from-Kel's-living-room episode, we spoke with frequent collaborator and friend Rhiannon about the nitty gritty of PREPRESS. Scared about getting your comic print-ready? Don't worry, Rhi is here to help!

In this episode recorded around October, we discuss DISTRIBUTION, from shipping inventory out of your bedroom to getting a graphic novel into major bookstores. 

Nov 2, 2015

After a short hiatus, we're back! In this self indulgent update we talk about what we're working on, what we want to work on in the future, and even take a break for Spike to explain a special kink called "pedal pumping."

Amanda also apologizes for her cat yelling. She tries to edit that out.

Sep 12, 2015

In this week's episode we break down this "MY BRRAAANNDDDDD" thing we're always croaking about, what it means and how we apply it practically.
