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

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...

Face Value Comics I really enjoyed it! I will recommend it to others on the Autistic Spectrum. And people who just want to read a good comic. I think it really grasps some of the issues.

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
by Mitchell J.
Publisher: Strumhaus-Piffle
Date Added: 09/19/2014 23:45:53
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.

Tantum Gray Issue 1 I met the creators at the Salt Lake comicon and the first thing i noticed was a giant standee of their yet to be introduced character Yarn man and was captivated. This is an already amazing story that hooked me 2 pages into it. I love the art it is reminiscent of Jeff Smith's Razl and the colors are crisp and vibrant. Over all a very complete and we'll put together book that would feel very at home on a local comic shops shelf.

Sherry Flippe
by David E S.
Publisher: NUELOW Games
Date Added: 09/16/2014 23:35:30
Sherry Flippe Sherry Flippe is 30 pages of old comics. Stuck in there is four pages of RPG material, a battle scenario for ROLF and some stats for D6xD6, none of which was very interesting to me. So, Sherry Flippe? Sherry Flippe is funny, cute funny, full of situations that go wrong in predictable comedic ways. It's nothing terribly surprising, but cute for that. As these are public domain, you can find six of these pages through a simple web search, which will give you a good sample. Which actually goes to my real issue with these. As you can see if you do that search, the originals were in color. The reproduction is okay, nothing I would complain about had the originals been in black and white, but color would have made them a lot clearer and authentic, and there's no reason a PDF shouldn't be in color....

Zenith Comics Presents: Heroic - First Issue
by Martin P.

Zenith Comics Presents: Heroic - First Issue Picked up a physical copy of this comic at the Montreal Comiccon Saturday. Obviously the beautiful cover artwork is what attracted me initially. Then when I started reading it, the storyline kept putting hooks in me. The story arc is awesome, the cast is sublime. I love the idea of a strong female lead in a multi hero comic. In only 27 pages I fell in love with this comic and I am burning to know more. This has the potential to become one of the best stories, all media confounded(print,tv,movies...) that I've read. And of course the artwork is candy for the eyes. Its easy to understand why I absolutely wanted to also own this as a digital copy....

Hawaii Star Manga Project #4 I was impressed with the quality. The pop iki section was excellent. I miss Bon dance food out here in Texas and it brought back good memories. I never down loaded a comic before so I will be getting more issues in the future.

Legacy #1 So you might be thinking "Why a 5-Star Rating?" Honestly, read the book and you'll understand. Legacy #1 is the first peek into the S17 Universe and what you'll see is the start of something awesome. The story is great, the art is fun and the comic evokes the type of comic that I used to read before people were so concerned with what media deal it might get them. Take a look and keep an eye on S17. I know I will be.
