Mutant City Blues
by Guillaume H.
Publisher: Pelgrane Press
Date Added: 05/31/2017 13:44:53
Mutant City Blues Mutant City Blues feels more like a collection of suggestions for a setting than a traditional book including setting and rules ; It's all good if you are willing to play a US based super mutant investigation, otherwise you'll have to do the legwork by yourself. The GUMSHOE system, at least the way it is presented in this book, lacks definition for my taste ; a player friendly set of pools, with clear instructions for the GM that failure does not exist and has little consequences on the investigation outcome. The order in which informations are provided makes little sense, with references, acronyms and rules that are explained long after being used into gameplay exemples. All in all, you'll find pretty good ideas in mutant city blues setting suggestions, but don't expect a solid foundation for a campaign, or a game ready to go... Therefore, the 20 USD pricetag seems a bit much....

Kolchak: The Night Stalker: The Lovecraftian Horror
by Mattias G.
Publisher: Moonstone
Date Added: 05/29/2017 07:08:53
Kolchak: The Night Stalker: The Lovecraftian Horror I'm gonna have to give it the full 5 stars. First of all, the illustrations are excellent both in terms of evocative style and in layout (one per page), which capture the horror feel better than nortmal cartoons. This is a proper graphic novel! Secondly, the text itself, delivered in a quintessential 50's / Dashiell Hammet type of Noir. Not the jumbled schizo lingo where different writers (or translators) have been brought in to provide piece-meal illustrations of the pictures, but as a consistent literary voice. It really brings the lead character, Kolchak, to life (perhaps even more so than the TV series?)! The one weaker point is perhaps the mystery at heart and the show down itself. Basically just another Innsmouth style raid into sea caves to machinegun deep ones. Then again I'm not that taken with Lovecraftian horror, but to me it was all the peripheral things (local colour and details) rather than the plot itself that kept up interest. Anyhoo, for 5 bucks, you should de...

Secret Identity Podcast Issue #775--Birds of Prey and Big Moose

Secret Identity Podcast Issue #775--Birds of Prey and Big Moose I enjoy Brian and the Mat Man's easy going style. Both are knowledgeable and seem well connected in the comics community. The variety of segment types keep the product and show fresh. I would like more comics professionals interviews as they are just names on a page to me when reading comics, but that is a small quibble.

Hero Happy Hour: Omnibus 01

Hero Happy Hour: Omnibus 01 Hero Happy Hour: Omnibus 01 The first five issues in one handy download is a perfect introduction to the characters which are familiar types looked at from a totally unfamiliar setting, think supermansion without the teenage boy crudity, sexism and obviously unanimated. Enjoyable, easy to read and yet engaging enough to leave this reader wanting more. No technical issues and very more-ish.. 8/10

Cthulhu 101

Cthulhu 101 This little book with a huge font is great for a light romp through some dark territory. Not too bad, its references are a little dated, but still fun to read.

Monsters Among Us #0 This comic is a great idea, the concept that Monsters are the heroes. I can't wait to read the rest of them.

Death Vigil Volume 1 Hidden gem! I love the art, the characters are really intriguing, and the story gathers quite steam after a few pages. Too bad no more issues will come (at least as far as I know) :( ...

Publisher: Valiant Comics
Date Added: 02/21/2017 22:54:28
Faith #1 Title: Faith #1: Faith Begins Valiant Comics By Jody Houser, Francis Portela, and Marguerite Sauvage Posted on Crystal's Game Review Blog Faith is a spinoff comic about a woman named Faith Herbert who had developed telekinetic abilities. She is able to fly and physically move objects. She joined a Superhero group called the Renegades to fight evil, but at the start of the comic, she had left the group in order to explore who she really is. She moved away from all of her friends, and started a new life on the West Coast as a pop culture blogger under the identity Summer Smith. The comic starts a plotline right away, tieing the reader into wanting to figure out what is going on. Then we move onto Faith’s life and catch glimpses of her in her day to day activities. During the day, she continually has run ins with her past, including an ex that has a reality show. Her superhero identity, Zephyr, is rather well known, and is one of the driving stories for the blog that Faith write...

Executive Assistant Iris Volume 1 This was just OK. Mediocre story and art bordering on bad at times. There's a really good chance I won't be picking up Vol. 2.

All Canadian Comics #4a
by Michael M.
Publisher: Red Leaf Comics
Date Added: 02/11/2017 13:34:48
All Canadian Comics #4a As a Canadian comics reader, I have to say I was very disappointed in this book. I WANTED to like it, but I felt that a book with such an important title -- "All-Canadian Comics"-- should have had stronger stories. I need to suggest that each of the stories showcased in it needed very much to work on pacing. "Megga Origin" was too frenetic, popping from place to place, and forgetting sound effects that would have helped deliver impact and context to scenes. "The Hidden Island" suffered in the lettering, to the point that it was distracting from the story as a whole. TO TELL A STORY IN ALLCAPS WITHOUT PROPER PUNCTUATION OR INFLECTION MAKES THE ENTIRE THING LESS DRAMATIC AND OVERALL LESS COMPREHENSIBLE, if you see what I mean. May I suggest looking at some of the great FREE comic fonts available at blambot.com and comiccraft.com? As for "Commander North," it felt both in art and story like a very young person telling a story for the first time. It meandered and seemed nev...

Divinity Trade
by Aric C.
Publisher: Valiant Comics
Date Added: 01/27/2017 09:16:16
Divinity Trade This is the type of book that makes you a fan of not just the creative team, but the entire universe within which it exists. Divinity is packed with lush art that is both clear and evocative, setting a very clear stage for one of the more thought-provoking stories in the medium. The story introduces concepts that are both alien and familiar and then executes on them in ways that you wouldn't expect. The reactions of the world to the events feel authentic and unforced, and it serves as a spectacular introduction the the current Valiant universe. If you follow no other books from Valiant, you won't be lost - although fully part of that world, it also stands alone in a way that complements the universe within which it resides....
