Week in Geek: Andrew watched a heavily promoted Netflix-original, Grace and Frankie, while Dan reads the recently re-collected The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past comic work, as commissioned by Nintendo Power, and written & drawn by the legendary Shotaro Ishinomori.
Don't Play: Dan and Andrew come at you with another game they do not recommend; and let's reinforce this aspect: DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME. This time, they discuss the absolute question mark that is Star Wars: Masters of Teras Kasi. *shudder*
The Forced Evolution of Characters: In the wake of recently released images of fan-favorite character, Yoshimitsu, from Tekken 7, Andrew and Dan look back at characters from games, tv, and comics have changed so much over time and analyze why this happens, with both positive and negative intentions.
Ownership Roundabout: Recently, famed comics writer and artist, Gerry Conway, posted a scathing review of his situation with DC Comics regarding royalties and ownership of character he created while in their employ. DC's brilliant but shady workaround paying or even crediting creators deserved a closer look from Dan and Andrew.
