To celebrate the week of giving thanks, Andrew and Dan decide to delve into the pits of despair and discuss the world of post-apocalyptic fiction.
Week in Geek: Andrew plays Rogue Legacy while Dan reads a book titled, Console Wars.
Mild Nepotism: Dan interviews his Josh Tobey, an old friend and painter whom Dan was able to recruit to draw a short story for his webcomic, Long John. In this segment, they discuss Josh's approach to art in general––his process and his theory.
Discussion: What better way to be thankful for what you have by engaging in fiction that emphasizes what you don't have––welcome to the Post-Apocalypse. Please leave your humanity at the door.
Fantasy Post-Apocalypse: In which Dan and Andrew look at this interesting and increasingly populr sub-genre of the Post-Apocalyptic framework that examines what happens when worlds that don't exist end.
