Thanks Bane! Yeah, we'll try and have Skool on more often. :)

Good 'cast, by the way. I know more about sprites than I ever thought I would, and you give good advice to the creators of those comics that apparently exist in great numbers! Well done! I'll go back and listen to the previous ones I missed, too...no dissing of ozoneocean must happen! Skool sounded a little bummed out on this one, I thought. Hope she's alright. Chow for now!

Banes at 7:58AM, Nov. 30, 2011

Oh, okay...too bad, but good that she's coming 'round when she can. I have to listen to episode 50! Didn't realize I was so far behind on these puppies!

Ozoneocean at 8:16PM, Nov. 29, 2011

Listen too... Quackcast 50 again (adult comics). Skool has quit doing regular casts. Number 49 was her last. She's just too busy and hasn't got the time for the extra work that these involve anymore unfortunately, so I'm doing them solo now. Skool IS happy to be a guest however! So if the topic is appropriate and she's available, I'll ask if she'd like to join me, as with this one. :)

W00TTT!!! Got my comic reviewed AND compared to My Little Pony, bestest day ever!

Banes at 4:37PM, Nov. 29, 2011

Hang on...skoolmunkee is the 'special guest'? I haven't listened yet, but please tell me you guys are continuing these as a team! And if that was a quip that flew over my noggin...well, then I deserve to be derided and smacked sharply on the nose.
