Save The Day: Basic Rules Noticed the Kickstarter when it was launched and supported this project. Never had any regrets. Rules are simple yet not simplistic. This book is all You need to play the game for multiple fun sessions. If You want to, as I did and do, You can add the advanced rules and enjoy the numerous support, especially the miniatures. I love those and look forward to many many more. Your choice! I have just added the colour print version to my collection and look forward to receiving it. A sidenote to Mr Okum: if You ever do another Kickstarter or Indiegogo please allow support via Paypal....

The Eternal Elite
by Scotty G.
Publisher: Weapon Press
Date Added: 05/31/2018 11:13:36
The Eternal Elite The Eternal Elite Staff: Melchizedek Todd Overview: So first up this season we’ve got “The Eternal Elite” from Weapon Press. Seems like the author is also the artist and, if I’m being honest, that normally gives me pause. Sure there are a few talented author/artists out there but they are rare indeed. It typically comes when an artist tries to write or a writer teaches themselves art so they can skip paying an artist. Let’s dive into The Eternal Elite #1 and see if Weapon Press can beat the odds! Art: So... remember what I said about artist/authors? Yeah... this seems like that. While they definitely had some skill and some panels are better than others; this is not a professional piece. It’s a greyscale comic with decent linework in some places but others just kind of look sloppy. For example, on page 3 of the comic we have some rather amateurish art of 3 characters watching a fight while the characters fighting actually look decent. There are a few issues with shading, pro...

Hero 9 to 5 #1

Hero 9 to 5 #1 Wow, this was great! B or C list heroes working for a company. I like the story of Flame O, who works for Heroes For Zeroes. After reading #1 I want more. I like what happens after the hero captures the "viilian." The art and writing was fantastic. I will be looking for more to read from AAM/Markosia.

Actuality Press #1 I liked this preview very much. I've been curious about Geek Girl and The Almighties. After reading this preview, I am even more curious. The art and writing was very well done and the pacing was great. I'm looking forward to reading both series in the very near future.

BASH! Ultimate Edition
by YANN E.
Publisher: Basic Action Games
Date Added: 04/18/2018 05:55:28
BASH! Ultimate Edition Hello, This review is based on reading only. I have not yet played the game. Bash does not seems to be a complicated RPG. The basic book contains all what is needed to play and run the game : character creation with small and not overwhelming budget, easy rules to play (if you know multiplications), a lot of powers to choose, good advice for the game master, a setting chapter who describes 10 of the most used comics settings and how to implement them in play and a lot of already made heroes and villains for all power levels covered by the game. It is a game I could run somehow in the future. My only small gripes are : Hit Points, I don’t think Hit Points is a good thing in a superhero RPG and the tactical aspect of the game which, I think is playable without a battlegrid but seems to requires one anyway. ...

The Magic Fire
by Jonas R.
Publisher: CaveArtifex
Date Added: 04/15/2018 05:43:07
The Magic Fire The Magic Fire is a full color comic of 20 pages by Claudia Cangini. I knew her illustrations from several roleplaying games. This is the first comic I read by her. It tells a fairy tale of a magic fire that needs no new wood to keep burning, warming the house. It is kept in place by a fire screen, and the mother warns her daughter never to remove it. Cangini uses few words in plain language (fitting for the fairy tale style) to go with her panels. Her art uses bold inks and lively colors, with a love for round and flowing shapes and little intricacies, e.g. patterns in the clouds, or the wooden walls of the house, which add life to the pictures without getting in the way. Page composition and paneling are well crafted, as are the color schemes for the various parts of the story, which are contrasting well without breaking the overall cohesion of the comic. Credit also goes to Paolo Bosi for layout, lettering, and color assistance. I enjoyed the story, and I think this is also a co...

Black Dog and Rebel Rose: The Road to Hell

Black Dog and Rebel Rose: The Road to Hell I am in awe of the artistic skills of Dani Smith and Alex Julian. I absolutely adore their work! I have read the story in book form and I'm really happy to experience it in comic book form now. This is start when they first meet. Rose and Skriker looks fierce as they battle the things that go bump in the night. I only have one complain... I can't see what Roses father is hiding under his kilt.

Quantum Vibe: Assimulation
by Geoffrey K.
Publisher: Big Head Press
Date Added: 03/16/2018 13:21:05
Quantum Vibe: Assimulation Marvelous story, excellently told. I followed it on the website and am ecstatic to have a full-blown copy. You'll enjoy the strangely familiar situation in which the explorers find themselves, and finding out WHY they're so familiar was an absolute treat. Eithne is a marvelous heroine and it was a wonderful delight to see just how she plays the game. Totally worth the time to read it. I don't have to tell you to "have fun" because you very surely will. :)

E.I. #1 - Earth Invasion
by Rooster M.
Publisher: Wunderman Comics
Date Added: 03/03/2018 09:51:51
E.I. #1 - Earth Invasion I've only read the first issue, so I cannot speak to the overall series. My first impression is that the story drags in the beginning, and by far it is not an epic beginning, but it's not terrible either. There's a lot of punctuation problems in the first issue, rhythmic flow issues, and artistic crudity. The coloring is especially tacky. And if you got kids the story is definitely not for them. Lots of cursing and sexual topics throughout. Earth Invasion borrows heavily from many sci-fi sources, including Harlan Ellison's 'A Boy & His Dog' where Nate and his dog Chopper communicate with each other towards the end of the issue. The difference is Ellison did it with telepathy, Wunderman has done it with alien technology. Someone claimed in a comment a few years ago that there is overt racism in the beginning of the book. That's total garbage. The story starts in India, and there's a spaceship the people witness. They question whether it's from Pakistan, then China, and then come to the ...
