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 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 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.

Breaking 4th: Gaming with HellzGurl (Borderlands)

Breaking 4th: Gaming with HellzGurl (Borderlands) Hellyssa exploring the Borderlands. A comix version of "Let's Play", because... why not? Here Hellyssa is talking about various things and the game, occasionally rambling on, it really felt like reading a transscription of a "Let's Play" session. The writer did a great job of capturing the essense. Instead of going for min/maxing your character or one of the common strategy guide approaches, Hellyssa talk's about "Did you know you could do this?" things. While the in-game camera goes in an expected direction, the concept behind "Gaming with HellzGurl" shows the creative potential of the "Breaking 4th" series....

Breaking 4th: Blind Date
by Customer Name Withheld
Publisher: Aspectral Comix

Breaking 4th: Blind Date A good story and the story comprised most of the PDF. The Hellyssa was the focus this time and there were other characters introduced in a way that flowed with the story. Except for a "bathroom request" near the end, which seemed a out of place or forced, the dialog felt smooth and natural reenforcing the impression that the characters have had a history together. Everything was easy to read, the "hand written" text from "Chick Magnet" was no where to be found. As before, that are many little details to be appriecated here. The one that stood out to me is how peices of Hellyssa's past are revealed: framed as literal puzzle pieces. A nice touch! Great rendering, great characters, and a good story....

Breaking 4th: Chick Magnet

Breaking 4th: Chick Magnet This is a good introduction to what I hope is a long running series. The most important aspect of a story, for me, are the characters. "Chick Magnet" is an introduction to the characters in the "Breaking 4th" world. Surprisingly, the background art is also a "character" that has a story to tell, instead of being a typical static backdrop. I had a problem reading most of the "hand written" text on my phone, it just was not rendering very well (a little better on the computer). Also, some of the "hidden details" were to low res for me to notice or apprieciate, appearing as pixelated blobs. The "Breaking 4th: A Closer Look" had higher resolution images of these "hidden details" which were readable. It was a nice change of pace to learn about the main character's routine through the eye's of story's antogonist....
