Comics can come from some weird places. Which most of the time is a shot at the writer or artist and the fact that they’re a weirdo. But sometimes is just a basic factual statement. You know, like when a nation makes a comic about a war they had no part in just because.
But who would ever do a thing like that? Not Insane Ian, but he did stop by the show to talk about North and South which does exactly that. Except under the name Les Tuniques Bleues if you’re reading it in the original French but known as The Bluecoats when translated into English.
Learn such things as:
- Why Chris didn’t even try to get one of the comic creators on the show.
- How many of these Belgian comics do we know about over here?
- What silly decisions did the NES port make for the controls?
- And so much more!
You can find Insane Ian on Twitter @insaneianb, his music on the Insane Ian Bandcamp page, his videos on the Insane Ian YouTube page (where you can hear if he’s played FF VII), and check out the Funny Music Project that he sometimes contributes to.
