Comics In Audio Form - With Dice!

Protean City Comics is one of the best actual play podcasts out there. Using the Masks rpg, the cast makes a fantastic story that strikes the feel of the best of superhero comics. Positive, hopeful, and always exciting, PCC tells great stories that feature a lovingly made, loved in world that make you feel like you’re picking up something familiar and part of something bigger. But mixed in with the highs of thrilling victory, you get the gut punches that just crush you, that remind you of the twists of Young Justice or the perils of Chris Claremont’s X-Men, so wonderfully executed that you can’t help asking for more.

Honestly, Just a Joy.

I love listening to podcasts. I love actual play stuff. I love, love, love masks. But I’m really picky. When my sister recommended Protean City to me, I was skeptical; I’d tried other things before, and it just didn’t click. Maybe it was too long. Maybe the players weren’t dynamic enough. Maybe I got bored, or didn’t feel anything at all. It didn’t matter why, though, the problem was that before PCC, I’d only ever been able to really get into one actual play podcast. Enter, Protean City Comics.

I listened to the first few episodes, the world building, the character clips, in my family kitchen on the fourth of July as I made cherry pie from scratch. As I listened to the creation of Falcon’s acronym, I pitted cherries. As I fell in love with Alina, and Sage, and Puck, I rolled out the crust. The pie went into the oven, and I fell in love with Protean City and her heroes.

Less than twenty days later, I’d gone through ten volumes. By twenty days, I’d go through thirteen. I was devouring the podcast, binging it like I never had before with anything. I wanted to know it all. I wanted to feel it all. I wanted to hear every single moment and I wanted it immediately. It was a hunger; it was a need.

I’ve never wanted to create for a podcast before. With Protean City, I find myself doodling characters, dreaming stories, thinking of little everyday things. I pester friends into listening; I needle my sister to listen faster so I can talk to her about it all. I’ve smiled, I’ve laughed, I’ve loved, and I’ve cried for PCC. I feel for it.

I can’t recommend PCC enough. It means the world to me. And, if you’ve made it this far into the review, I have no doubt that it’ll mean the world to you.

I love these people

I swore up and down that I wouldn’t like Actual Plays for far too long. But I was definitely wrong and this is the podcast that kicked it all off for me. Brandon, James, and the crew created such spectacular and fully fleshed characters (favorite PCs include John/Puck and Alina/Arcana and favorite NPCs include (all of them) Fracture and Dewey) and embody brilliant and hysterical and heartbreaking stories and I’m just so happy to engage with their world.
