Comic Covers looks at comic book covers and give a brief examination of them through the years.
If you had to pick only 3 of these, based on the covers, which ones would you pick?
Nancy Drew #5
Is her hair red or blonde?
This series has been pretty great, and I am hoping it continues past this story arc.
At the start of the scenario, we were locked in a room, with no equipment. Outside the room stood an armed guard.
We were expected to overpower him and escape.
None of us wanted to die, so we spent a really long time trying to figure out how not to do. We found a knife, but none of us had Proficiency: Knife, and Proficiency: Sword didnt count
But later, when I made s super-critically successful Charisma check, nothing happened, because the plot must go on, in spite of the rules and the rolls.
Pick a side of the fence and stay on it, are we playing a game where the quibble between knife and sword proficiency is legit, or are we playing a game where we should ignore rules and logic?
The Wu-Tang Clan as a Saturday Morning Cartoon?
If I wasn’t there, I wouldn’t have believed it myself.
Inspired by the comic, I ran this at GenCon. I present to you, ODB!
In the game, ODB ending up dying, and coming back to life, because, of course that is what happened.
I could only imagine if this was a real cartoon, with live-action bumpers featuring members of the Wu.
How amazing would that be?
RZA, get in touch with me, let’s make this happen.
The premise for this one is so gimmicky, but simple, I’m shocked no one else has done it. A group gathers for the HS reunion, but there is a weight hanging over them, Through flashbacks, each flashback being one year (Reunion minus 3, etc) we watch the story unfold.
I think #5 is the finasle/ final issue, which is a real shame, because this alt-Archieverse horror title has been my favorite. The art in this issue in particular really sets the tone, and there is no way this is not getting a WOW from me.
Heroes in Crisis #2
Issue #1 had a seemingly very high body count.
Will it stick?
Will the resolution be idiotic?
Do I care?
