Aphrodite IX/Cyber Force #1
by John G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Top Cow
Date Added: 10/30/2014 09:42:51
Aphrodite IX/Cyber Force #1 If you are excited about the IXth Generation coming next month (and you should be), then you should grab this important chapter in the Top Cow Universe story. Yes, this takes place hundreds of years in the future. Yes, there are Artifacts, and lots of them. Yes, one Artifact in particular has taken the upper hand . . . can you guess which one? And there are some interesting tips and reveals that will satisfy fans of the TCU, especially CyberForce. We get some more of the Pantheon, the special group of IX generation creations, all named after the gods. For delicious effect, it is the female gods who are clearly in charge and closely tied with the whims of "Mother," who descends from the Cyber Data Chairwoman herself. The art is terrific, carried through in the "new" style of Stjepan Sejic - this is not his painted work; this is classic sequential art with the style and beauty that Stjepan brings to the table. And you'll ask yourself . . . how can some of these people s...

The Children's Vampire Hunting Brigade
by John G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Creator's Edge Press
Date Added: 10/29/2014 12:26:14
The Children's Vampire Hunting Brigade This is a fun collection for Halloween and mid-Autumn. It's an easy read, a story that captures your attention, and a nice way to reflect the changes in weather and evening darkness. Although there is a lot of dialogue, it is written in a breezy, conversational style. The reader isn't bogged down with excessive exposition, and the elements of the story flow pretty well. The art is well suited to black and white, and the storyboarding is particularly good. Panels flow well, and we aren't treated to awkward perspectives or close-ups. The pages are designed to match the dialogue, adding to the accessibility of the writing. It is not excessively gory, so it's a good seasonal choice for fans of the horror genre who don't require extreme violence. There is plenty of suspense and gore, but all of it supports the tale....

Ravaged Planet
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Alderac Entertainment Group
Date Added: 10/28/2014 09:15:04
Ravaged Planet This, the Player's Guide for Brave New World, opens with in-character material from the 'DeltaTimes' underground website, setting the scene for the alternate now in which the characters live. It starts where the comic strip that opened the core rulebook left off: the capture of a delta called Patriot who'd been a leading light in Defiance, the dissident organisation opposed to the current state of affairs in America and especially the policies concerning deltas, as superpowered individuals are known in this game. This is followed by Patriot's autobiography which gives a good flavour of the recent history that leads up to the present day. It's a good tale, well told, and ought to give players enough of a feel to know which side - government, Defiance, the Mob, independent operator - they'd like their characters to be on. The clear implication, though, is that all right-thinking deltas will join Defiance. Next, and still as pages from an in-character website, Crescent City is describe...

Brave New World
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Alderac Entertainment Group
Date Added: 10/23/2014 08:23:20
Brave New World The book opens with a comic strip showing a young girl, newly into 'delta' powers, fleeing pursuit and being rescued, a process that rapidly descends into a brawl in which she's by no means sure who is on her side - aptly setting the scene for a game which melds alternate history and comic book superheroics into a fascinating if grim reality in which America is no longer the 'Land of the Free'... at least, not if you have superpowers. Still in character, this moves on to facsimile web pages of an underground site called DeltaTimes, a place for those superpowered individuals who do not wish to cooperate with a fascist state to hang out. Taking the premise that the readers are newly come into their superpowers and are trying to figure everything out, the articles here give a lowdown (accurate as far as the game goes, if anarchistic in approach) about what it means to be a 'delta' or superpowered individual in this setting. So an excellent and immersive introduction to an alternate his...

The House of Montresor, Part I
by Chuck S.
Publisher: Red Stylo Media
Date Added: 10/20/2014 21:06:23
The House of Montresor, Part I Write a sequel to a classic piece of literature. Is there any more daunting task? Too close to the original and you risk losing your own voice, stray too far and be torn apart by critics. This book walked the line perfectly. First a caveat, I am a fan of Poe. And of The Cask of Amontillado, so this was a touchy book for me. I wondered where they would take the story, what characters could be interesting enough to constitute a sequel. Well they pulled it off beautifully! The House of Montresor brings us (after a quick recap of the climax of Cask of Amantilado) into the lives of that ill-fated family 50 years after Fortunato commits his heinous crime. The main character is Edana, the heiress of the Montresor/Fortunato estate, who is returning to The House of Montresor to claim her inheritance from her "guardian" Count Montresor. As we learn the history of the women she is descended from we realize there is definitely foul play afoot. How will Edana fare when she returns home? Poe’s...

Atomic Robo RPG

Date Added: 10/10/2014 05:13:24
Atomic Robo RPG Ein Rollenspiel-Regelwerk zu lesen, kann anstrengend sein. Manches Mal verliert man sich in den Regeltexten und kämpft sich durch Querverweise, Sonder- und Optionalregeln. Viele Erklärungen muss man dutzende Male lesen und kommt erst wirklich dahinter, wie sie gemeint waren, wenn man sie tatsächlich anwendet. Wenn man dagegen einen Comic liest, kann man auch die verwirrenden Tiefen einer komplizierten Zeitreise-Geschichte sehr einfach nachvollziehen. Zwischen Bild und Text herrschen Synergien, die zu begeistern verstehen, wie in keinem anderen Medium. Als bestes Beispiel kann ich hier mein Studium heranziehen. Ich hatte eine trockene und langweilige Statistik-Klausur vor mir, doch der Stoff flog mir nur so zu. Mein Lehrbuch für diese Zeit hieß Mathe-Manga-Statistik und die kleinen Bildchen trugen mich durch das langweiligste Fach, das man sich nur vorstellen kann. Dementsprechend gut funktionierte für mich Atomic Robo, welches verschiedenste Situationen mit einem passenden Comics...

Velocity #1
by Everard M.
Publisher: Top Cow
Date Added: 10/03/2014 11:37:07
Velocity #1 I enjoyed this quite a bit. I can only describe the artwork as "raw". The sketchiness gives an active feel to the panels which works well with the character and her abilities. It's energetic and kept me running along with the character. Really good job on the presentation. I felt though that not enough was shared about the character's origin. We found out a lot about the doctor, but we really don't know much about Velocity. If that was intentional, then it was successful. But I wasn't given enough to become invested in the character. I know she has something to do, and a little bit of time to do it, but I don't know the compelling reason. I'm interested in what happens next for sure, but I think more could have been done to make me a little more interested. Overall a really good showing. Keep it up....

The Three Lives of Fantomah: Book One
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: NUELOW Games
Date Added: 09/25/2014 06:22:50
The Three Lives of Fantomah: Book One A fascinating glimpse into an early superhero - 'the most marvelous woman ever known' - who despite living in a jungle was more of a superhero than a 'jungle girl', at least in early issues. She first appeared in 1940 billed as 'The Mystery Woman of the Jungle' but was not the typical female jungle-dweller as she displayed superpowers and a strict code of justice - defeating a pair of treasure-hunters intent on pillaging a wealthy hidden city in the first story. This is a faithful reproduction of the original black and white lineart, nice and clear and easy to read. The second story is in similar vein, Fantomah defeats a mad scientist hell-bent on destroying jungle animals in revenge for a most unfortunate series of incidents during a hunting trip... using, of course, a crazy device that harnesses the power of the moon to create a tidal wave to flood the jungle. That sorted, she's off again to save a valley-full of pumas from another nut-job who plans to use them in his plot for...

FarScape Roleplaying Game
by Scott B.
Publisher: Alderac Entertainment Group
Date Added: 09/20/2014 02:34:17
FarScape Roleplaying Game I purchased this as a resource, and because I liked the series so much. I have not yet read the entire book through, and am finding it difficult to do so for a 3 main reasons. First, I find the odd, slanted, two-column layout to be hard to follow. I'm sure someone thought it added character, but it just does not flow naturally. Second, the chapter titles are done in a wretched font that I have to work at to decipher. Again, I can acknowledge the attempt to add character to the text, but being unreadable does not serve that purpose well. Third, the font used for the body text is also a little hard to read across the various backgrounds, etc. This may also be exacerbated by the scanning used to create the PDF. (The fact that this is a scan was not mentioned in the description, but I noted it in the review after-the-fact)...

Teen WIzard: The Naome Glin Predicament The handful of pages was like the interlude to the prefix. The frame of reference jumps forward and back willy-nilly. The three main characters don't seem to have any mental processes. It is hard to get involved with characters that were brain damaged at birth. It was impossible to suspend disbelif enough to even enjoy it as a farce.
