In this extra-ordinary length podcast about extra-ordinary webcomics, skoolmunkee and ozoneocean talk about how media, format, topic (and other features) may factor into whether a comic is "traditional" or not. And some of their favorite examples!

ozoneocean is back! He and skoolmunkee are changing the features format a bit this week to more discussion, less blurb. As there wasn't a Quackcast last week, they've got four features to talk about this time. Since they've had to try a few things out this week, the features make up the entire show.
