I had the pleasure of working on this wonderful project. I was surprised that no one had ever come up with it before. Seeing the final product with all the amazing ads is a real treat. Martin and Nick really came up with something great here. I encourage everyone to keep reading because it only gets better and better! Cheers all!
Love this product, love the cover art too. I love this concept, I really like the changing 'battlefield' mechanic - highest card and lowest card wins is fun but what to play when second highest wins... lots of fun bluffing.
I thought the rules were relatively straightforward but after reading other reviews suggest checking out the Cards and Quests YouTube videos to anyone who wants to see how the game is played. "D-Inifinit plays Cards and Quests" is a whole adventure and very funny it is too.
I also have the Cards and Quests Bestiary and recommend you get that too....
The boys had me at Batman Beyond. I haven't been able to keep up with this title or many others due to the price of comics nowadays. Their news segment is always welcome as it is my way of keeping up with what is happening in the comics world. Recommended.
A fabulous comic full of action and adventure! Graphics are engaging and the story is very original. The ads at the beginning and end of the comic really add an extra element that makes the story feel even more real. A funny action filled story that will entertain and delight. Ned Kelly is a pretty awesome character and I am sure his continuing adventures will be just as incredible.
A rip roaring adventure ! I loved the sarcastic humor and the original story. What a brilliant idea combining aliens and steam-punk ! The illustrations are so compelling and really bring the story to life. I actually laughed out loud reading this. I am lokking forward to reading the next installment. Check this one out !
Fun as it may seem on the surface, when you start thinking about it time travel can make your head hurt. So here's a primer to get all you budding Time Lords sorted before you leap into a TARDIS and make a complete mess of time and space.
Launching straight in to Chapter 1: Into The Vortex, there's an overview of the contents of the book chapter-by-chapter and various comments on things like die-rolling conventions and other rules mechanics. There are plenty of extra rules here, which you - as the GM or in agreement with the group - will need to decide if you want to implement. The ruleset as given in the original box set work fine, these are refinements which you may or may not want to include. There's also a note that a big portion of the book is best left to the GM alone, on the assumption that only one member of the group will GM Doctor Who games. If you don't plan on being the GM, you might want to wait until your GM has had a look at this book before you decide to buy it.
A satisfying short horror anthology with great art and narrative diversity. I can easily recommend it to any collector of horror comics.
To an American audience the use of orange spot color may seem like an odd gimmick but there is some real attention to comic history with this detail. In the UK, full color comics were cost prohibitive. Often comics were sold with a similar color scheme. Often black and white pages were embellished with touches of a single color. Notably red, blue or green would have been the choice. While using only orange doesn't really save Scott Jackson Comic works any money printing via drivethrucomics as it did the Uk comics publishers it's a really nice nod to history.
My only regret is that I didn't see a 2015 issue up on drivethrucomics. I would be tempted to try it out as well....
Looking forward to the new format. The banter between the two hosts is priceless. They have this special knack of reviewing comics I don't read. It would be interesting to see how closely we would be aligned in tastes if they were to review comics I was reading. Good to hear about other comics out there...I can't read them all.
Edison Thomas Saves the World
Staff: Kevin Hill
A fun, if not flawed, pulpy super-genius comic.
Today I have “Edison Thomas Saves the World” from Hyperactive Comics. It’s presented as a one-shot comic about a 19 year old super genius battling a inter-dimensional being. Without saying any more about it, let’s jump in!
So this is actually done by a trained hand... I think. It’s definitely not high enough quality to call it “professional” but you are not left visually guessing at what’s going on. It really harkens back to the old pulp style comics that were popular in the golden and silver age and I love it. Very clean lines, thick strokes, etc. There are the occasionally poorly drawn panel, facial expression, or the like but on the whole it’s decent.
Now there are some serious technical issues that a little experience will fix. For example, a lot of this looks scanned in or drawn by hand. When you have something like that in a digital format, you ne...
