Who, or what, are The Lightning Dogs? They’re a pack of anthropomorphic dogs from another world, trapped on a post-apocalyptic Earth. Armed with special powers and tearing through the Wasteland in their battle-ready vehicles, they combat the evil Glampire’s minions and keep his vampiric reach from extending to the stars! It’s an animated adventure series steeped in the glory of 80s and 90s cartoons… Or at least it could be. We’re on a quest to see how far we can take it – documenting our journey every step of the way in Lightning Dogs: The Official Paw’dcast. LIGHTNINGDOGS.COM

    Raising Kane

    Raising Kane

    In our last drawstream we took on the hero character who we'd drawn the most, so this time we're working on the deceptive protagonist we've drawn the least: Kane Corso. Kane is a tough cookie, and a complicated dog of discerning tastes. He know that in a world of ordinary and conventional, only the most distinctive will ever leave a truly lasting impression. But, when you're just an alien dog in a world of mutant freaks on the dead planet of your gods... it makes you think. Tune in as we trace Kane's pulp hero roots and learn about some surprising synchronicity between his breed and his backstory all while honing his visual style.

    The Pain Train

    The Pain Train

    All aboard the Pain Train! Vehicle designer Max Acree is back in the studio and dishing out devious plans for new rides in The Wasteland. The Lightning Dogs are coming to Earth with a pretty serious advantage when it comes to tech, so Halloween Jack and his cronies are going to have to get innovative if they want to stand a chance. We look at a variety of designs for the Skeleton Krew's preferred mode of transport for rolling up and terrorizing the peoploid populace: The Ghoul Bus, as well as The Underdog a tool designed specifically for sabotaging The Brutus. However, it's not just Jack that's kicking up dust in these freaky lands... somewhere out there chugs The Pain Train. What it is and who runs this engine of doom... well, we've got a lot of working theories.

Awesome

I’m still catching up on these episodes but this podcast is so good. I love seeing the generation and fleshing out of these ideas in “real time”. If you’re a fan of 80s and 90s cartoons and want a taste of the behind the scenes, this podcast is for you

Lightning Dogs is an incredible concept and the official pawdcast contains worldbuilding that I could only dream of accomplishing. I've been keeping up with it since that fateful first lightning strike, and greatly anticipate it's hopeful arrival in the nerdosphere. If I could donate to Patreon I would, but sadly this review is all I have to offer. #howlnoise
