A broad yet tasteful, classy and highly discrete discussion about the wonderful and disturbing world of lewd, lascivious adult webcomics.

This week, Zac of The New Luciefer joins skoolmunkee and ozoneocean to talk about the featured comics and 24 Hour Comics Day. skool and oz have never done it, but Zac (as of recording) is just about to!

ozoneocean had big plans for his trip to San Diego Comic Con to promote his comic, which basically went completely wrong in almost every way possible. He tells his story and what he did to try and recover. What could go wrong for you and what would you do?

This week skool and oz review some common debates in webcomics, the ones there are no right answers for, and go over some of the pros and cons of each side. Our points may be old-hat to some, but everyone's got an opinion on these and they're worth thinking about!
