The hiatus is over! Click the thumbnail to view the new page!
First the big news: on October, Friday the 13th, the most spooky day possible, we will finally resume updating the Satan Ninja 198X webcomic on a weekly basis. Fuck yeah!
Of course, OF COURSE this hiatus lasted waaay longer than we anticipated. Sorry about that. It kills us to not be pumping more life-blood into our radical ‘80s child. The hiatus was drawn out due to a bunch of factors, not the least of which was us getting married over the summer.
So, again, I apologize for any inconvenience caused by our love.
In the meantime, we have a couple episodes of our ‘80s media review podcast, Radicast 198X, which we recorded several weeks ago, but never got around to editing and uploading … until now!
This week’s episode marks Radicast’s exciting journey into the double digits with episode 10 (technically, it’s our eleventh episode if you count the one we did on Supergirl, which is exclusive to Jessica’s Patreon).
This time we discuss two very iconic mid-'80s fantasy films that have a lot in common. They both bombed at the box office only to go on to become cult classics. They both star gorgeous "cold" brunettes. And they both are titled a single word that starts with the letter "L".
I'm speaking, of course, of the 1986 Jim Henson directed Labyrinth and the 1985 Ridley Scott directed Legend.
Other media we discuss in brief: The Dark Crystal , Phenomena , Seven Minutes in Heaven 
Intro and outro songs by Michael Cook.
In this week’s episode, our friend Caitlin joins us as we discuss two more films from 1986: the strange and whimsical horror fantasy Troll (pseudo-predecessor to the infamous “Best Worst Movie” Troll 2), and the Eddie Murphy action-adventure comedy The Golden Child.
Other media we discuss in brief: Golden Boy [1995-1996], Ator l'invincibile , Troll 2 , Just One of the Guys , Big Trouble in Little China , Cobra , Weird Science 
The comic hiatus continues for just a bit longer, but to help you endure the wait, we've resumed our weekly podcast: Radicast 198X.
We kick off our glorious podcast return with this episode where we discuss and review two very different films from 1986: the bizarre high school gross-out comedy Class of Nuke 'Em High (Troma's second best movie), and the chick flick disguised as an action-adventure comedy, Crocodile Dundee.
Other movies we discuss in brief: The Toxic Avenger , Airplane! , Robocop 2 , Romancing the Stone 
We dedicate this episode to Matty (Australian Dude).
In other Satan Ninja news, Jessica went through and made a whole bunch of minor updates and corrections to Satan Ninja pages. Mostly mega minor stuff that you wouldn't notice without directly comparing the updated pages with the old ones, but one of biggest changes is that the van the satan ninjas use in issue 1 is now '80s accurate. When Jessica first drew it, she must've accidentally used a more modern van as a reference, resulting in an anachronism. Whoops! Neither of us are knowledgeable about vehicles, so the mistake slipped past us until a reader recently pointed it out.
If you're really curious to see exactly how the old pages were updated, Jessica posted some before and after examples on her Patreon, which, by the way, is starting to creep close to reaching the first milestone, at which point Jessica will release the flash animated original trailer for Satan Ninja 198X, from way back in 2008 when it was called Shinobi Fist: Legend of the Badass Ninja. Thanks a lot to all you dudes and dudettes who help support this comic—you totally rule!
