That’s right! Yamino, of Sister Claire, and Chloé, of Go Get a Roomie, will be recording an episode with The Webcomic Beacon mid-November. It will be about fan fiction comics, fannon, character shipping, and all of that jazz! We’ll be talking about Chloé’s Kim Possible fan-comic, as well as Yamino’s multiple tumblr character ships, including Adventure Time!

Speaking of which, if you have a question for either Yamino or Chloé, send us an email (with your name and your question) to WebcomicBeacon@gmail.com and enter for a chance to win a signed copy of the Adventure Time #3 comic book (Yamino’s cover variant), and a character bust sketch of your choice, drawn by either Chloé or Yamino! Two winners total (same prize), only one chance per person!

Questions will be pre-sorted, and organized before the show by The Webcomic Beacon. Both Chloé and Yamino will each pick one best question, to be the winners of the prizes! Winners will be contacted after the show is recorded.

Enter by November 17th, 2012!

Webfiction Reading: Tales of the Big Bad Wolf: Red Riding Hood – Chapter 2 (part 1)

Fes Works reads chapter 2 (part 1) of SGL’s Tales of the Big Bad Wolf (Red Riding Hood Arc) for Webfiction World.

Apologies that this is not the FULL chapter 2, but it would have been quite long for one go. We will release the 2nd part of chapter 2 sooner than usual… which is looking for be every other week (alternating with the other reading). Frequency of the readings, or the number of webfiction serials, could change to occur more often in the future.

Check out a newly updated list of favorites and suggested episodes for all of this great podcasts! With over 14 DAYS of combined listening time, we made it easy to start, at least somewhere!
