The new team failed at talking to Peter is the last issue. We see Peter finding a weapon from the TC team and he realizes that this technology is more advanced then his. He knows he is going to step up his game. The team now has to deal with failure. The bosses are not happy. What else can this team do with their limited skills. The story of boss Prunella is revealed. We see how she came to the Time Corps.
We get a surprise entrance of a Spartan from the year 371 BCE. He is in the middle of a battle and he pops into modern day. The encounter of this Spartan on the street by a random guy is a big surprise for him. After some drama, the Spartan moves on. We see him arrive on the streets of Hollywood. The writer is doing a good job of keeping the reader guessing. Like the colors that the colorist uses. ...
Good follow up to Issue #1 . This answered many questions I had after reading the first issue. We see the conclusion of the backstory for Paulina. Paulina becomes the 3rd member to the Time Corps that Boss Prunella Jones calls the "unassignables". These 3 come from very different periods in time and will be interesting to see how the writer weaves them into the story. We get a better idea of what the Time Corps is and how people like Paulina, Smoke Jaguar and Garabaldi are chosen. We also see more backstory on Peter. Peter is on a mission to change history. His story is a love story. The love of his life is gone. He knows she could have been saved had it not been for some pharmaceutical company being greedy. The medicine would have been a lifesaver and the pharma company chose not to release it. While Peter gets the satisfaaction of exposing the company and monetary gain; this does not make him feel much better or change the fact his love Sheila is dead. We see how Peter chooses to us...
Curious about Swords without Master?
I was too, the name kept popping up in conversations but I never really got a chance to check it out, until recently.
I found that I needed to closely read the rules and it took a second read through to start to understand the finer points of the system, especially how the players interact with it as the character creation is spread out through out the book in sidebars. Aside from this minor gripe, I heartily recommend checking this game out.
SWM concerns itself more with the structure of your story and less with the fiddly details of combat or skill checks. The three phases of the game each create a natural back and forth at the table and give everyone a chance to add to the fiction of the game. You should play this game if you are interested in creating tight short story sessions and want to be suprised even as the GM by where the story takes you.

Cavalier Attitude is an excellent publication. With this issue, I really enjoyed the description of the Shadow Gnome and the location The Crystal Tavern. Both excellent resources for the busy GM to work into his or her setting. And, as with other Starry Knight products, the artwork is top notch, showing off the best of the old-school RPG artists.
Noticed the Kickstarter when it was launched and supported this project. Never had any regrets. Rules are simple yet not simplistic. This book is all You need to play the game for multiple fun sessions. If You want to, as I did and do, You can add the advanced rules and enjoy the numerous support, especially the miniatures. I love those and look forward to many many more. Your choice! I have just added the colour print version to my collection and look forward to receiving it.
A sidenote to Mr Okum: if You ever do another Kickstarter or Indiegogo please allow support via Paypal....
The Eternal Elite
Staff: Melchizedek Todd
So first up this season we’ve got “The Eternal Elite” from Weapon Press. Seems like the author is also the artist and, if I’m being honest, that normally gives me pause. Sure there are a few talented author/artists out there but they are rare indeed. It typically comes when an artist tries to write or a writer teaches themselves art so they can skip paying an artist. Let’s dive into The Eternal Elite #1 and see if Weapon Press can beat the odds!
So... remember what I said about artist/authors? Yeah... this seems like that. While they definitely had some skill and some panels are better than others; this is not a professional piece. It’s a greyscale comic with decent linework in some places but others just kind of look sloppy. For example, on page 3 of the comic we have some rather amateurish art of 3 characters watching a fight while the characters fighting actually look decent. There are a few issues with shading, pro...
I had no experience with the game,"Magic: The Gathering," but the artwork in the comic captured my attention with books #3 and #4 of the "Path of Vengeance" series. Moreover, I found the writing to be humerous and intelligent enough to compete with the impressive art. The combination has made this my favorite offering at DriveThru Comics.
Just as in those episodes, the characterization, action and evocation of place in "Magic: The Gathering #1" are impressive - especially in view of the many different worlds spanned by the plot. The fantasy cityscapes of Ravnica would be a difficult challenge for any artist, and here are brought to life. Now, I have to read every other issue....
Wow, this was great! B or C list heroes working for a company. I like the story of Flame O, who works for Heroes For Zeroes. After reading #1 I want more. I like what happens after the hero captures the "viilian." The art and writing was fantastic. I will be looking for more to read from AAM/Markosia.
I liked this preview very much. I've been curious about Geek Girl and The Almighties. After reading this preview, I am even more curious. The art and writing was very well done and the pacing was great. I'm looking forward to reading both series in the very near future.
I just finished reading the book and found it very entertaining. I found the art and writing to be well done. Thanks to this preview I was able to discover several books I know I will like and now I will be buying all the series to read more.
If you like blood and killing in your comics, then this one is for you. The main character Killswitch has a nice outfit with a K on his mask and his gear on his body is shaped like a K. Killswitch has a sense of humor like Spider-Man, but kills like The Punisher. He's a character that you want to know more about. It's an action-packed introduction in this first issue. There are also pages with ads for upcoming titles from Wicked Comics: Clownman#2 and Justice#1. The fan art pages are well done. ...
What got my attention was the cover, than I saw the trailer as well. If your a fan of Deadpool and Deathstroke i highly reccomend this. Cool story, killer artwork really looking forward to this series.
