Mentioned Stuff and Link(s) (during the show)

OG Manga / Comic Contest email your entry
We finally figured out what you the audience likes for contests... so Dan came up with a manga/comic contest... for which the winners will get a book of the contest... confused?

Here's the deal... every few weeks... Dan will come up with a new manga/comic frame... with an empty comic bubble and it's your job to fill it in and modify for everyones entertainment.

The lowdown... Dan says NO MEMEs! If you use one... it better be HAWT SHIZNIT... otherwise, get creative.

Anyhow this week... no entries. I guess it's time for Dan to draw a new frame? Whatcha think? I agree!

But to get started download the 1st frame here... but listen to the show to find out why want to download this file!

Dan eventually remembered to the 2nd contest-frame (thanks to Jefferson)... so download it now!HERE!

You want to win this prize pack! There's unique OG merch, the eventual book of the contest (listen to the show for details)... give-a-ways... including some signed stuff from past guests. So what are you waiting for? Enter the contest now!
