Vampire the Masquerade: Toreador
by Ryan G.
Publisher: Moonstone
Date Added: 04/15/2020 04:10:10
Vampire the Masquerade: Toreador **Moonstone Clan Comics Review:** I decided to purchase all of the old Moonstone VTM clan comics in anticipation for the upcoming run from Vault Comics, and wow, these things sure are a product of their era. Oftentimes they’re edgy for the sake of being edgy, lacking even the semblance of substance. The characters are often poorly fleshed out and completely unbelievable. Everything that happens in the narrative is there only to throw you off the trail of the inevitable, horribly convoluted and nonsensical twist. There are constant red herrings throughout and then when the twist happens, you’re left in shock at the utter stupidity. But for that reason, they can be genuinely entertaining, like a B-movie. **Toreador Review:** Very little happens in this clan issue. Several pages are dedicated to a movie that’s being shown and half of the entire thing is a recounting of the history of vampires. The history doesn’t really match any of the canon I’m aware of and one character even comme...

It tells the tale of a girl abducted by a Nosferatu. While not all of their interactions are believable and the state of mind of the characters can be erratic and hard to pinpoint, the n...

Rai Volume 1: Welcome to New Japan
by Rafo L.
Publisher: Valiant Comics
Date Added: 04/10/2020 23:00:29
Rai Volume 1: Welcome to New Japan This is excellent sci-fi/cyberpunk comics with a tall glass of feudal japan in the sky mixed father issues from afar. I highly recommend reading this if you are fan of any of those buzzwords I just dropped or if you were a fan of the previous versions of Rai. He's here and has more to deal with than his previous incarnations. Thanks for the excellent work to everyone that did their thing in this book. From the art to the writing it's excellent.

Strontium Dog: Search/Destroy Agency Files 01
by Eddy W.
Publisher: Rebellion Publishing Ltd
Date Added: 03/22/2020 18:40:55
Strontium Dog: Search/Destroy Agency Files 01 This is my first time reading Strontium Dog, and it was a lot of fun! It has the satirical edge of classic Judge Dredd, but due to the focus on mutant bounty hunters, it can tell different stories of prejudice and crime drama. Plus some great art from classic 2000 AD artists. Definitely worth a read!

Slaine: Warrior's Dawn A decent sword and sorcery comic set in ancient Ireland. The art is pretty inconsistent, but the story is fun.

Tiny Supers
by William B.
Publisher: Gallant Knight Games
Date Added: 03/16/2020 14:55:13
Tiny Supers In a 265-page game book, I expected to see more of a game and less of a setting. Make no mistakes, this is not a game book, it's a setting book for generic supers with some rules in case you don't have your own system. And it's a very minimalistic setting book focused more on inclusion (which is *specifically* called out in their basic ideas) than on actually setting up a world. I would rather have seen 200 pages spent on the game and decent examples of character creation and play instead of a minimalistic, generic super-hero setting that I'm never going to use. As it is, the rules encompass pages 4-43 . . . and the rest is their setting *for their rule set* which they don't really bother following most of the time. Not a single one of the characters depicted in the book followed their character creation rules so there weren't any good examples when the rules were unspecific--which is the norm not the exception. At its core, there's something here that might be useful to expe...

A.B.C. Warriors 1: The Mek-nificent Seven
by Eddy W.
Publisher: Rebellion Publishing Ltd
Date Added: 02/25/2020 19:52:44
A.B.C. Warriors 1: The Mek-nificent Seven An interesting collection of short stories about a group of robot soldiers. It definitely wears its inspirations like "The Magnificent Seven" on its sleeve. Also has a good dose of Pat Mills' humor. I almost wish I read this before the first Nemesis the Warlock collection, because there's a lot of backstory here that plays out there.

The Complete Nemesis the Warlock 1
by Eddy W.
Publisher: Rebellion Publishing Ltd
Date Added: 02/22/2020 11:50:37
The Complete Nemesis the Warlock 1 When I was looking into this, I was told that Nemesis is a lot like a proto-Warhammer 40k setting. And that's technically true, but it does not indicate the sheer level of glorious chaos this comic provides. Planet-wide mass transit systems co-exist with space Inquisitors! A villain turned into a ghost after a transporter accident that uses telephone wires! An entire empire of space aliens that pretend to be Victorians! A hero that looks like a demon, and whose head is the same shape as his spaceship! It's a gloriously bonkers action comic....

Ninja High School Textbook Volume 1 I forgot how funny Ben Dunn can be. It's been fun re-reading it, and seeing all the homages, call backs, and other little bits sprinkled within the series.

USAGI YOJIMBO ROLE-PLAYING GAME 2nd Edition
by A customer
Publisher: Sanguine Productions
Date Added: 02/19/2020 09:50:47
USAGI YOJIMBO ROLE-PLAYING GAME 2nd Edition I was very pleased with how this game turned out. Looking through the material, anyone who is a fan of the Usagi Yojimbo comics can make a character like their favorites from it! Any of Usagi's adventures can be mimic'd as well, as I've experienced, which is great fun when you realize how well things mesh together. If you have any doubts or questions, I'd recomend watching the video and see how that group played the game. Everything I experienced was basically one to one with that. ;-)

Star Power and the 9th Wormhole I LOVE Star Power! It's a great blend of Green Lantern and Star Trek, with a fun lead character and a great supporting cast. Even though it's a free webcomic, I've still purchased every collection and issue on DriveThruComics. One of my favorites!

Judge Dredd: The Complete Case Files #22
by Eddy W.
Publisher: Rebellion Publishing Ltd
Date Added: 02/18/2020 18:23:47
Judge Dredd: The Complete Case Files #22 More 90s-era mixed bag. Some stories like "Crusade" and "Escape from Kurt Russell" are fun, while others like Skar are interesting but marred with more murky art.

Judge Dredd: The Complete Case Files #21 We're firmly in the 90s of comics now, for all that entails. The Wilderlands epic is great stuff, and it's surrounded with a handful of good stories to boot.
