G.I. Joe: Special Missions Volume 1
Publisher: IDW Publishing

Speical Missions Volume 1 brings us the 4 part story "Crush Depth" written by Chuck Dixion with art by Paul Gulacy and colors by Aburton and Grafislava. The story pits the special forces team lead by Scarlet and Mainframe against the Baroness. I really enjoyed this one and for a number of reasons. Among them are the art, which I don't know how IDW decides on their arist and colorists but DAMN! They know how to pick them. The majority of the story taking place on the high seas splashes off the page becuse of the art. From the high winds and crashing waves to the tense undersea crushing pressure it all is vibrant and wonderfully done. The plot by Chuck Dixion is great. Even if you are not famiiar with the Special Forces team of G.I.Joe they are introduced well and each have a distinct enough personailty. The banter between them each is well written and doesn't come off cliche or forced. Also, it's niice to see a woman in charge of things. I really enjoyed Scarlett or as as she prefers to be call "Red" a lot. She is a strong leader and I would like to read more stories focused on her. The Baroness is a good villian overall. I would like to know more about her backstory. Howerver the way she is playing to get back into the good graces of Cobra is an intersting plot which leads me to wonder what happened to fall out of favor with them in the first place. For cons the only thing I could say is as with most IDW trades it only has 4 issues. Howerver, I will say that for the price point its about right and it makes it easy to read in a single sitting. I will be getting volume 2 for sure.

Magic: The Gathering Volume 1

It's been a while since I really played magic. Back when I played I do't recall there being Planeswalkers. I don't see myself getting back into the game after reading this first volume either. With that being said I do see myslef intrigued by the world of Magic: The Gathering. The art here is nice and crisp. Each of the different planes has it's own feel and they pop off the page. Innistrad espically was beutifully colored. Many kudos to Martin Coccolo for the art and J. Edwin Stevens for the colors. For plot it's okay. Dak Fayden is a Planeswalker and he has stolen an item and this has caused many people to be less than happy with him about it. Avoiding spoliers I will say that the pacing could have been a bit better, at times the action was overly rushed and I had to force myself to slow down and actually take in what was happening. Parts of the plot also are basic in their exection. So, while elements of the story were formulaic in their execution it was an enjoyable read. Fans of Magic will enjoy this. The art is good The story is decent and even as an old Magic fan I see the secod volume being picked up in the near future to see what happens next.

Joan of Arc, Protocol Game Series 3

This was the the first game we played in the Protocol game series. This is a very fun and tense game. The story played out with many plot twits and was all around a blast. With the card drawing mechanic that the game engine runs on it ensures that no game will be played out the same. I can't recommend this game or series of games enough.

This was my groups first GMless game and we had a blast. All of us had a great time and it was a very deep story with some fantastic role playing moments. Even the scenes that were very short had such a sense of forbidding and weight. Then when we the first of us became aware! Adding in the external details took the game to another level. This was a great game and i highly recomend it.
