As a Canadian comics reader, I have to say I was very disappointed in this book. I WANTED to like it, but I felt that a book with such an important title -- "All-Canadian Comics"-- should have had stronger stories.
I need to suggest that each of the stories showcased in it needed very much to work on pacing. "Megga Origin" was too frenetic, popping from place to place, and forgetting sound effects that would have helped deliver impact and context to scenes.
"The Hidden Island" suffered in the lettering, to the point that it was distracting from the story as a whole. TO TELL A STORY IN ALLCAPS WITHOUT PROPER PUNCTUATION OR INFLECTION MAKES THE ENTIRE THING LESS DRAMATIC AND OVERALL LESS COMPREHENSIBLE, if you see what I mean. May I suggest looking at some of the great FREE comic fonts available at blambot.com and comiccraft.com?
As for "Commander North," it felt both in art and story like a very young person telling a story for the first time. It meandered and seemed nev...

Le seul jeu de rôle de super-héros créé par la défunte Guardians of Order et co-écrit par Steve Kenson lui-même qui est ensuite devenu célèbre pour son jeu Mutants & Masterminds.
Le système est une version un peu plus technique du Tri-Stat utilisé dans BESM et il n'y a pas vraiment de garde fou concernant la construction des super-pouvoirs, un MJ vigilant est donc recommandé. Le systeme se veut simple mais ne l'est pas tout à fait une fois la couche super-héroïque ajoutée, mais il fonctionne tout de meme et met l'accent sur l'histoire et le roleplay.
Deux bémols : le PDF n'est pas indexé et il fait 300 pages donc pour chercher, ce n'est pas évident. Le fait d'utiliser des points de vie n'est peut-être pas le plus adapté à un jeu de super-héros....
This is the type of book that makes you a fan of not just the creative team, but the entire universe within which it exists. Divinity is packed with lush art that is both clear and evocative, setting a very clear stage for one of the more thought-provoking stories in the medium. The story introduces concepts that are both alien and familiar and then executes on them in ways that you wouldn't expect. The reactions of the world to the events feel authentic and unforced, and it serves as a spectacular introduction the the current Valiant universe. If you follow no other books from Valiant, you won't be lost - although fully part of that world, it also stands alone in a way that complements the universe within which it resides....
Easily one of the most fun books out there today, Archer & Armstrong has quickly become one of my favorites. This is, at its core, the ultimate odd couple pairing, and the ridiculousness of the situations in which the duo find themselves are a great backdrop to their love/hate relationship. If you enjoyed the original run, or were ever a fan of Quantum & Woody of the recent run of Power Man & Iron Fist, then this is the book for you.

This was an alright purchase for me the guidelines this book provided were more or less similar to what you'd find online for free so I can't help but feel that $23 is a bit much for this product. $12 isn't half bad but I also **DID** have to create my own PDF version which at this point any product on here should just come with that option. Especially a product like this that discusses using digital tools to make maps. That's a computer task and yet they only have epub and mobi files? Its way more of a pain to get a reader for those than to use a pdf....
Being a fan of the Dresdenverse, I have enjoyed this adventure and felt like it fit into the "feeling" of Jim Butcher's world. Easy to read and it ran fairly quickly with the players enjoying the session. No issues with the adventure, but at the time we were new the mechanics of the rules and it took us a bit to get the hang of the part.
I liked the murky world that has been created in these comics and the use of red throughout. Second issue could have been longer but liked the gore. Third issue was strongest and most well-written (IMO).
