Cancertown 2: Blasphemous Tumours
by Volkamenia V.
Publisher: AAM Markosia
Date Added: 11/17/2013 17:46:47
Cancertown 2: Blasphemous Tumours Agh I love it. Admittedly it starts off a little slow, but there's enough things going on that kept me flipping to the next page. I'm glad I did. The art struck me as a little rough at first, but after getting used to it it didn't matter. I think it was the choice of colouring... But overall it doesn't detract from the story. My favorite part by far was the clever and distinct character dialogue. The writer really knows how to capture this. I intend to go buy the first Cancertown soon. Despite the fact that I hadn't read it, I found it very easy to pick up on what was going on. Props for that....

Reya: Chapter One
by Volkamenia V.
Publisher: AAM Markosia

Reya: Chapter One I was kind of surprised when I bought this... I'm familiar with the quality of AAM/Markosia's stuff, and I've got to say that I'm kind of surprised that this was published. The lack of backgrounds, the strange anatomy and the lack of any sort of tones in the work really make it look more like someone's first web-comic/manga attempt than a publishable graphic novel. The inking is nice. But I think it could benefit from more varied line weight, especially if you aren't going to draw backgrounds. It makes your characters look like they're just floating around in a void, and they blend into the void since the lines are rather thin. One of the majorly jarring things I noticed is that everyone suffers from 're arr rook saaame'.. *cough*. That is, the facial structures of hte characters don't vary in the slightest. The older people are only distinguished from the younger by a couple of additional lines on their faces. It's a bit jarring! Some study would help there, and I'm sure it'd help ...

Dresden Files RPG: Your Story http://www.teilzeithelden.de/2013/11/16/rezension-dresden-fi-
les-your-story/ Bereits seit 2006 entführt Jim Butcher seine deutschen Leser mit Die dunklen Fälle des Harry Dresden in die düstere und spannende Welt des einzigen Magier-Detektivs von Chicago. Heute beschäftigen wir uns mit dem 2010 durch Evil Hat Productions herausgegebenen Rollenspiel auf FATE-Basis. Die Lektüre der Romane ist keine Voraussetzung, um mit dem Spiel Freude zu haben. Fans der Serie profitieren allerdings von tieferem Hintergrundwissen und können schon mal nicht gespoilert werden. Die Spielwelt Vorab gesagt: Die Welt der Dresden Files, das Dresdenverse, ist über die Romane hinweg eine unheimlich facettenreiche, vielschichtige und vor allem düstere Welt geworden. Allerdings wird sie in diesem Band nur grob umrissen. Der dazu gehörende Weltenband Dresden Files: Our World beschäftigt sich dann ausschließlich mit dem Dresdenverse-Chicago und den in den Romanen auftauchenden Charakteren und Organisationen. ...

Formatting Comics for the Kindle and Nook: A Step-By-Step Guide to Images and Ebooks

Formatting Comics for the Kindle and Nook: A Step-By-Step Guide to Images and Ebooks I think it was outdated. It said the maximum size of a picture for Kindle was 525x640 pixels. My understanding is that the higher definition Kindles have resolutions up to 1600x2560. Perhaps I'm wrong. And does Amazon charge 15 cents per MB? That would mean I'd have to pay them more than I received.

Rise
by Volkamenia V.
Publisher: Ninjgirl Studios
Date Added: 11/14/2013 02:43:13
Rise As a super supporter of beginning western manga artists who complete a portion of their work and share it with the world, I bought this to do just that-- Support. Unfortunately, I can't recommend Rise at it's current price. It's a cliche approach to a cliche concept. The art is unpolished (though props for putting it all in colour) and the lettering is sometimes difficult to read... Not even the designs of the characters stood out. If you're going to try and create a story around a concept so done-to-death as elemental style powers, you've got to do something new with it. Introducing the story via two disembodied voices introducing the main character pretty much spoilt what little of the story remained in this 22 page chapter. I suggest that the author re-think this opening concept to make it more interesting. Maybe starting with the bus accident and cutting down all the needless talking (gotta show, not tell) will help Rise start to stand out. As for the art... Welllll keep prac...

Dresden Files RPG: Your Story
by Derek L.
Publisher: Evil Hat Productions, LLC

Dresden Files RPG: Your Story This sourcebook is well laid out - the table of contents is comprehensive, and the pages are littered with notes that help the player understand concepts. The style is evocative of the books, and it does come across as if it has been written by the characters in the series. One issue I found was that the structure of magic in the system does not lend itself well to balancing against evocators. My group had consistent issues with trying to keep other magic users from being eclipsed by our 'Dresden'. This took the form of refresh costs for sponsored magic being too high for the resulting lack of flexibility in use, and some weres having a great deal of difficulty dealing with the implications of the rules. Not all of our difficulty was due to the system - I am sure that we missed ways to solve problems that could have been used. I just wonder if this game may have been configured differently if it had come out after Fate Core, which I very much enjoy....

Crunch: Revenge #1 (one shot)
by Scotty G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Hyperactive Comics
Date Added: 11/08/2013 10:28:16
Crunch: Revenge #1 (one shot) Crunch: Revenge Staff: Kevin Hill Overview: Pulpy action goodness. Review: So opening up this comic I realize that it is actually the third comic in a set rather than the first (which I normally review) but I was quickly drawn in by the fun quirky style it had. So despite this not normally being the typical review I do, let jump into Crunch: Revenge! So launching right into it, the art is awesome. It’s got this quirky 80s metal/punk aesthetic going on with some more modern tweaks. I got to say, despite it not being professional grade, it’s damn good and has a style all its own. The lines are crisp, the anatomy (however distended) is generally consistent, the artist displays an understanding of dynamic poses that allow his characters to be as expressive in pose as dialogue (very important for a visual medium), and the displays of motion are fluid and informative. Special not should be given to the perspective some of these shots are drawn from. If this was a ...

Female Force: Nancy Reagan

Female Force: Nancy Reagan Female Force: Nancy Reagan Staff: Michael Troy, Manuel Diaz, Jeremy Kahn, Alberto Pessoa Overview: Educational, just not engaging. Review: When I downloaded “Female Force Nancy Reagan” I thought someone had made Nancy Reagan into an action hero with a team of other 1st ladies (Note to self: pitch concept to NBC, I’m sure they are looking for something less offensive than Ironsides). What I got wasn’t that but it was still decent. Jumping right in, the art’s solid but sometimes it looks traced (see: cover). They use a very vibrant palette and it’s clear this was intended for kids (or at least students). Layout it top notch and lettering is readable. A few times it got a bit small and when superimposed over some really vibrant colors (see page 14 for an example) it got a little hard to read when the text was smaller than expected. The comic gives a glossy overview of Nancy Reagan's life from birth until childhood. While good overall, it has a few missteps (it compares ...

Dresden Files RPG Casefile: Neutral Grounds
by Eon F.
Publisher: Evil Hat Productions, LLC
Date Added: 10/31/2013 20:05:45
Dresden Files RPG Casefile: Neutral Grounds As mentioned, this is a really good introductory adventure. It sets the mood nicely for a Dresden Files campaign, and shows the players what's in store for them: a mix of the supernatural and the mundane, and plenty of bloodshed. Plus, it's free! You can't go wrong with this- or the Dresden Files rpg in general, though I prefer the new streamlined Fate Core system. Supposedly they're releasing an updated Dresden Files game with the new Core rules, and I can't wait for that!

Growing Up Enchanted #3
by John G. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: AAM Markosia
Date Added: 10/30/2013 06:53:36
Growing Up Enchanted #3 I have to disclose that I am a big fan of the artwork of Alex Serra. Growing Up Enchanted is a great title, enjoyed by adults but particularly accessible for young readers. It follows a very relatable young girl and her friends as she learns about her special abilities. There are dragons, magical circumstances, and xenophobic villagers. Truly a classic medieval tale that has a very modern sensibility. The writing is sharp and the story flows nicely. The artwork is a perfect compliment to the story - which evokes elements of Jeff Smith that will connect well with any fan of the Bone series. It is very, very different from that series, but they will appeal to similar readers. Drive Thru is offering it at an incredible value for such quality work. Buy the first books, and you'll find yourself picking them all up over time!...

Dresden Files RPG Casefile: Neutral Grounds This is a very nice little introductory adventure, and I used it to start my campaign. It is set in the Baltimore in the back of the "Your Story" Dresden RPG book, and features an NPC who is, this being Dresden, in very serious trouble. It contains seven PCs if you want to use them, but can be run nicely with whatever characters you have, including characters the players just created. The adventure has three scenes to it: the scene of the crime (two dead baristas, one missing person), the search (which parties who have somebody who can use ritual magic may just skip, fair warning), and the confrontation. It will give the players and GM a feel to how a fairly normal Dresden scenario (if there is such a thing) would work....

Kolchak Tales: Ghost Stories (B)
by Flames R. [Featured Reviewer]
Publisher: Moonstone
Date Added: 10/27/2013 13:58:22
Kolchak Tales: Ghost Stories (B) Carl Kolchak, hard-bitten reporter of the supernatural from the TV series “Kolchak: The Night Stalker” of the 1970s returns to action courtesy of an ongoing series of comic books and graphic novels from Moonstone Books. This time, Carl’s been fired by the owner of the newspaper that used to employ him, and he must find another way to make ends meet. He’s approached by a young couple, Otto and Mo Brerhahrer, who are ghost hunters in their spare time, and Kolchak can hardly say no, particularly when they offer to buy him lunch. Through three related vignettes, the reader learns more about Kolchak, and why he has such a close connection to the supernatural. The first, titled “Fifteen Minutes,” find Kolchak at his wits end regarding where his next meal is coming from. He decides to get in touch with a young couple he met at a recent funeral – their interest in the supernatural seemed fortuitous, and at the time they had expressed an interest in hiring him to do some writing work for the...
