JBD: The Devil's Due #1
by Rudolf A.
Publisher: Griot Enterprises
Date Added: 10/26/2020 16:50:46
JBD: The Devil's Due #1 Abut half of this book (around 14 pages) is actual story. Rest consists of ads, credits pages, dividers, multiple title pages and so on. I felt that the story did not flow smoothly. It was hard to follow, jumped around without rhyme or reason. There was little progression from cause to effect. Text and images did not always worked together, felt like those were concentrated more on setting a mood, than telling a story. I felt the story didn't take advantage of everything the comicbook have to offer as a visual medium. Furthermore I feel like hermetic choice of subject matter will not appeal to broader audience not intimately familiar with the broader cultural background. The black and white heavy ink-style art was decent enough. So that's a plus. Personally - not my cup of tea....

Cancertown: An Inconvenient Tooth Trade
by Sean T.
Publisher: AAM Markosia
Date Added: 10/21/2020 13:55:25
Cancertown: An Inconvenient Tooth Trade For a large part of this book, I had very little idea what was going on. That's not a criticism, it's all part of what makes this a creepy masterpiece. It's really well written - you hear the main character's London accent clearly in your head, not because of any awkward-looking attempt to write it phonectically; but just because the phrasing feels so authentic and natural. The art perfectly complements the surreal and eerie plot; somehow looking cartoonish and yet grimly bleak at the same time. One of the most enjoyable comics I've read in a while....

USAGI YOJIMBO ROLE-PLAYING GAME 2nd Edition
by Andrew B.
Publisher: Sanguine Productions
Date Added: 09/29/2020 11:18:22
USAGI YOJIMBO ROLE-PLAYING GAME 2nd Edition This is a fairly simplistic mechanical system, but a very rich world. If you love the Usagi books, this one is for you. If you love feudal Japanese history, culture, etc. This is for you. The book provides rules for playing any of the animal "races" as well as a number of different occupations. It even provides a fairly good list of characters for gamemasters to tie into the game. But where it really shines is how it gives a summary of Japanese history, politics, etc. through the Tokugawa Shogunate, as well as a breakdown on the different provinces of the nation. If you want to run a Usagi game, this is a fun stand-alone book. If you are interested in running a historical campaign, this book provides enough maps and details to use as a sourcebook for any mechanical system. For those unfamiliar with the books, the default era of Usagi Yojimbo is the first five years of the Tokugawa Shogunate (1600-1605)....

Girl Genius Volume One (B&W Edition)
by Andrew B.
Publisher: Studio Foglio
Date Added: 09/29/2020 10:30:34
Girl Genius Volume One (B&W Edition) If you like steampunk or humor, look no further. This series is filled with great characters and explores an alternate world-Europe where a young girl finds that all she knew about herself is wrong. While I can appreciate the color versions, the series originated as B&W, and for the price is a great introduction for those unfamiliar with the series. Be warned: it is addictive, and you may be forced to laugh aloud.

Vampire: The Masquerade, Winter's Teeth #1
by Guido A.
Publisher: Vault Comics
Date Added: 09/17/2020 02:33:27
Vampire: The Masquerade, Winter's Teeth #1 If you're a longtime fan of both Vampire the Masquerade and comic books, this is a must buy. Finally you can read a high quality comic book set in the VtM universe. -The tone is good, there is no shunning of the darker elements but also no puerile indulging on them. The personal drama is there, but in a measured way which is good in my book. -There is not much meat of the story in this first issue, due the decompression techniques of modern comic books. So it's hard to give an opinion on the main plot. -The two main protagonists aren't that great or original, but they work and they're cool enough and they avoid the usual tropes and stereotypes overused for female leads. So overall it's a good point for me. -There are a few very good strong sequences that can inspire your games if that's what you're looking for. Really liked them. Four stars instead of five because: -From this starting point it looks like the scope of the story will be rather limited....

Judge Dredd: The Complete Case Files #29
by Eddy W.
Publisher: Rebellion Publishing Ltd
Date Added: 09/01/2020 07:56:58
Judge Dredd: The Complete Case Files #29 I'm a little tired of the Judge Death stuff, but I respect how the comic continues to reinvent things rather than telling the same story over and over. Another great collection of Dred strips!

Judge Dredd: The Complete Case Files #28 More excellent Dredd comics! The Complete Case Files are all excellent reads, and it really helps an American like me to get a better sense of how Dredd slowly evolved over time.

Ninja High School Textbook Volume 2
by Eddy W.
Publisher: Battlefield Press
Date Added: 09/01/2020 07:53:37
Ninja High School Textbook Volume 2 The story turns a little more serious and interconnected here, but there are still some funny bits (including some thinly-veiled swipes at superhero comics). The art jars at one point -- I think a comic produced later was jammed into the ongoing storyline -- but still a good collection.

Ninja High School Textbook Volume 1
by Eddy W.
Publisher: Battlefield Press
Date Added: 09/01/2020 07:51:49
Ninja High School Textbook Volume 1 Fun comic in the vein of Teenagers From Outer Space (or, more accurately, the reverse). With over 500 pages of comic, it's well worth the price!

Tiny Supers
by Tim H.
Publisher: Gallant Knight Games
Date Added: 08/24/2020 14:30:50
Tiny Supers I've been searching out a "supers" system which would cover not just MCU-level heroes, but also "street level" heroes a la Marvel's Agents of SHIELD. I've tried so many games looking for something that would run the gamut of "enhanced" secret agents all the way up to super-team level characters, and Tiny Supers is the game on which I settled. It's easy to learn, easy to run, easy to play, and fun! It definitely does not leave you lacking in whatever type of supers game you want to run. Well done, I'm a fan....

Hellboy: The Roleplaying Game Quickstart
by Bob V. G.
Publisher: Red Scar Publishing
Date Added: 08/23/2020 15:03:43
Hellboy: The Roleplaying Game Quickstart - For the past few days, I have soloed my way through Hellboy: The Roleplaying Game Quickstart. It is free at DriveThruRPG . The adventure, that is included, is for low level characters. It is designed for a Dungeon Master and several players. To solo it, I used a solo engine that I have been testing out. I did this adventure with five characters: the ones included with the adventure. - - As soon as the characters entered the haunted house (the inner hall), the psychic performed a séance. She was hoping to have a calm conversation with the ghost and put it to rest. Instead, all hell broke loose. Later, monsters were killed. The priest was kept busy with a prayer, a confession, and destroying twelve profane books. Mona, with the detective background, was taken down on the second floor landing. She was bleeding out and there was no time to save her because another monster came at the team. So, this adventure was very exciting and the team won. = = Game review. This quickstart is 44 page...
