You might call this a comic book. It has the feel of one even if there aren't really a lot of dialog baloons. However, it server a purpose. It helps you get a feel for another world. A world somewhat in our future, where uncertain events caused civilization to take a nose dive.
This is the world of the Walkabout RPG (also by Vulpinoid Studios), or at least the world it could be.
The Scavenger's Tale tells the tale of what the youth of the wasted future might do with their time. How they go out exploring for artifacts from the "old times" and bring them back to have the elders tell them stories about what the objects were called and what they were used for. The elders may be it right, but sometimes it is about as accurate as a certain sea gull telling stories to a young mermaid.
The story is written as the journal of a young person going out and exploring this world. The twist in the story takes place after the protagonist encounters a more "civilized" person who grew up in wha...
As soon as I heard about this comic and the creative team involved (and the fact that it was only 50 cents) I immediately downloaded it. Travis McIntire writes a hilarious quirky tale inspired by Tom Waits. This is a must-read for Tom Waits fans and still a must-read even if you have no clue who Tom Waits is (but then afterward you should probably go listen to some Tom Waits just so that you can become a cooler human being). I'm a big fan of Tyler and Sara Sowles from Killustration Studios, especially of their comics Durontus and Hank Steiner, so I was stoked to see them team up with Travis McIntire. Tyler's excellent art and visual storytelling skills really helped push the hilarity of this story, and Sara's colors are top-notch, as she works in a unique palette and style. All around A+, kickass stuff!...
Amazingly fun little read. If you're looking for something witty, fun and entertaining, then "Step Right Up" is the book for you. McIntire is sure to be the next big writer in comics. And the art from Tyler Sowles is comparable to some of the top selling Indy books on the market.
A MUST BUY FOR ANY TOM WAITS FANS or COMIC FANS FOR THAT MATTER!!!
McIntire can do no wrong. Being a Tom Waits fan I was very eager to read Step Right Up. And it did not disappoint. This well-crafted short story is packed with hilarious banter and great art work. I can't wait for the Waits inspired anthology!

An honest to God solid Christian multi-publisher crossover.
Ok so today I am going to do something a little different. I normally review only Issue #1s but today I am going to take a look at “The United” which, while technically a #1, is actually a mega crossover event between 10 Christian themed superheroes. I am totally in support of Indie crossovers and I was very excited to come across this one. For better or for worse- I am going to check out The United #1. Let’s give it a look.
Lettering & Layout
The layout is very reader friendly- as a 10 character crossover has to be. We have a character page with headshots and names of all the characters and when we are introduced to them we are given a small blurb about their abilities. This is helpful and not super intrusive.
The lettering is not fantastic. The introduction uses some very stock fonts in big, poorly laid out, exposition blocks. In panel the lettering...
The third in the trilogy, it is the same fun and light reading as the first two. knows what stories it is trying to tell and tells them briskly. this book is a great light read and perfect for Deadlands players.
One of a trilogy, I loved all three. Pulpy horror steampunk fantasy western. The stories are fun. I would highly recommend this to anyone who plays Deadlands or is interested in any of the above genres.
Knowing McIntire from his work with the Snake Oil Comics podcast crew, I was quite eager to see what kind of style his writing would take the shape of. When I found out a new short of his was available on the Drive Thru Comics site, I jumped at the change to grab a copy of it.
With the synopsis sounding rather interesting, I sat down to read this and was struck by the quite sarcastic comedy that ran throughout the story itself.
The one thing that struck me the most about this short story was the fact that McIntire manages to pack a lot of humor in to this release in very few pages. The patter of the sales man feels like it would be right at home from a movie such as the Tim Burton version of Sweeney Todd or a movie like that. I loved the idea of the salesman being so smooth with his patter that he could turn almost any situation around with the minimal amount of effort.
With the writing so effectively paced and packed with humor, the art was going to have a very big task ah...
This was a fun read. The art was beautiful and the story seemed like an interesting beginning. The biggest detriment is that it left me wanting more Exalted. I would definitely subscribe if this became an ongoing comic.

Interesting start for this cheesecake character.
The art is amazing done by several Top Cow legendary artists. But you can't deny its really meant to heighten the young male blood with its "voyuerism tendency" when the wind blows under her skirt thing.
What is interesting though is....yes, she is started as an eye candy but the later take on her character improved and gave her more substance not only in character but also her presence at the Top Cow Universe.
There are times in history when the echoes of history trail through time. The trenches, battle fields, and nightmares of WWI were rife with the horrors of war depravity in spades. This was a war the likes of which the world as a whole had never seen.
Skirmisher publishing has released "La Baionnette #32," and its like a window into the French collective mind during WWI.
I've gamed in this war a couple of times and its never a pleasant war ever but then no war is.
To understand why this issue is important you have to understand who Louis Raemaekers is and why the world is different because of him and his artwork.
But first what is "La Baionnette"?
According to wiki:
The bayonet is a French satirical weekly which appeared in 1915-1920
Its headquarters was 30, rue de Provence in Paris.
It was originally created as the bayonet At the January 23, 1915 by cartoonist Henriot says Henriot , a contributor toThe Illustration and father of Émile Henriot . It changed its name in Jul...
Sam Johnson, co-creator of The Almighties, returns with Cabra Cini: Voodoo Junkie Hitwoman - Dark New Year, a dark tale set forward as a taster of the four part mini-series that will soon be released by Actuality Press.
Completely different from the action comedy of his The Almighties title, Cabra Cini is a dark look in to the world of the title character and couldn't be more different.
With a great opening that gives us, the readers, just enough to hook us in but leaves us wanting more. Being familiar with Johnson's work, Cabra Cini really shows just how versatile he is. The story here is well paced, well written and really shows a lot of promise for the forthcoming mini-series.
We're shown Cabra herself, a couple of the characters that will no doubt play a big role in the title as well as seeing some great background work for the character. Johnson manages to pack a lot in to the short page count without it feeling rushed or cluttered. You are pretty much dropped straigh...
