In his quest for world betterment at any cost, Harada sought out and activated many potential psiots like himself. Those who survived, but whose powers he deemed to have no value to his cause, were hidden away at this installation. But Livewire, having studied Harada’s greatest strengths and learned his deepest weaknesses, senses opportunity where he once saw failure. A young girl who can talk to birds… A boy who can make inanimate objects gently glow… To others, these are expensive disappointments. But, to Livewire, they are secret weapons…in need of a leader. Now, as a mechanized killer called Rex-O seeks to draw them out, Livewire and her new team of cadets will be forced to put their powers into action…in ways they never could have imagined…

Best Review Ever! AGENTS OF PACT #2

First Comics News - Fri, 05/26/2017 - 15:58

PUBLISHER: Chapterhouse
WRITER: Kalman Andrasofszky & Blake Northcott
ILLUSTRATOR: Federica Manfredi
COLOR: Caroline Nolasco
LETTERS: Andrew Thomas
EDITOR: Allison O’Toole
COVER: Bella Rachlin
PRICE: $3.99
SUMMARY: Barely functioning as a team yet, and the Agents are already outnumbered and outgunned by an army of souped-up Equilibrium agents headed by the Steeltown Hammer! Who can even the score? Spoilers: it’s Kebec.
COMMENTS: This issue brings Kebec back into the story. The focus is mostly on Marla Ritchie as she learns to control her Gold Girl abilities. Redcoat gives the full feel of a Captain Canuck story without Captain Canuck in it. Not sure how this whole no Captain Canuck experiment is going for Chapterhouse, but I miss Captain Canuck and can’t wait for his return. This is a good filler story while building space between the last Captain Canuck series and the next one. If you compare the Chapterverse to the Marvel Universe Captain Canuck is Captain America, Human-Lizard is Spider-Man and Agents of PACT are Agents of SHIELD. It’s not that you don’t have superheroes in the comic, you have Fleur de Lys, Redcoat and Gold Girl but the story is more about mission and procedure. The action in this story revolves around rescue and science and less fighting but there is some of that too. All and all very enjoyable but I still miss Tom.

Diane Nelson, President of DC Entertainment & President of Warner Bros. Consumer Products, joined DC Publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee, on the star-studded blue carpet before the movie premiere at The Pantages Theatre in Hollywood.

DC Entertainment President & Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns joined fellow executive producer and Warner Bros. Co-President, Production Jon Berg on the carpet to celebrate Wonder Woman’s big screen debut.

DOLLFACE VOLUME 1: Action Lab’s Best-Selling Witch Hunter

First Comics News - Fri, 05/26/2017 - 14:44

Collected for the First Time Ever and For a Whole New Fan Base!

Writer(s): Dan Mendoza & Bryan Seaton
Artist Name(s): Dan Mendoza
Cover Artist(s): Dan Mendoza
128 pgs./ T+ / FC

Bryan Seaton and Dan Mendoza’s DollFace series broke records and became Action Lab’s biggest debut series. Over 20,000 copies were preordered and the regular covers for DollFace #1 sold out and needed to be reprinted.

Now Seaton and Mendoza have decided to try something never before done at Action Lab. They are actually changing the content of the single issues as they are collected into the first volume to allow a teen audience to enjoy their original story. Now not only can the fans of Vampblade and Zombie Tramp enjoy the tales of Lila the Ball Jointed Witch Hunter, but with a teen plus rating on the collected edition it’s safe for teens age 15 and up.

When asked about this change, Seaton had this to say: “DollFace takes place in the Zombie Tramp universe, but we have noticed that many teens are drawn to the cuteness of the art and the story behind Lila. We wanted to have a version that they could enjoy as well.”

The first volume collects issues #1-4 of the ongoing series. It follows the adventures of Lila, a 17th century soul transported into a life size ball jointed doll created by a couple of MIT students in the present day. Now, Lila is hunting down the witches that killed her family.

DollFace Volume 1 will be available in comic book stores on July 5th, 2017. Order with Diamond item code MAY171011. Fans of Mendoza’s other work will be thrilled with this new addition to the Action Lab universe and newcomers will enjoy the action-packed and emotional story.

OSR Extravaganza Sale - The Picks - Random Esoterica invade the Town of Brighton in the Misty Isles

Tenkar's Tavern - Fri, 05/26/2017 - 14:12
The OSR Extravaganza Sale is in full swing. Its time for The Tavern to make some picks and the occasional "deep track" ;)
+James Raggi 's Random Esoteric Creature Generator for Classic Fantasy Role-Playing Games and their Modern Simulacra is a mouthful. It is ALSO extremely useful and full of inspiration when you want that "special" creature to entertain your players (and gives some insight into LotFP Weird Fantasy rules).
Looking to instill a little fear in your game? Then look no further! Nothing brings the thrill – and terror – of discovery to a game like new monsters. Faced with the unknown, mighty-thewed heroes tremble in their hauberks, wizened wizards fumble with their spell books, and even the most audacious of rogues hesitate before plunging into battle. Nevermore worry that your players have memorized every monster’s stat, power and weakness. Nevermore resort to tired fantasy clichés, and worn out monsters fought a thousand times before. The Random Esoteric Creature Generator ensures that each monster your PCs cross is unique, unexpected, and best of all – unknown. With an unlimited number of horrific combinations, this is the last monster book you will ever need. Bring terror back to the table with the Random Esoteric Creature Generator! Rules Set: Systems-neutral, designed to be used with any RPG  $7.99  $6.79Dark Times in Brighton - An adventure and a town designed for Labyrinth Lord, but really for the OSR ruleset of your preference. Who doesn't need a town for his or her players to be based in?
Dark Times in Brighton is an adventure for four to six characters of 1st - 2nd level. Although designed as a Labyrinth LordTM compatible product, It is easily compatible with most fantasy RPG systems.  In addition to the adventure itself, contained within these pages are details of Brighton and its people, a town that could easily become an important part of your character's careers as adventurers. The town of Brighton exists in the north, at the source of the Daakencraags where the Darkenwolde Forest shades the winding Brother’s River. The legendary adventurer, Richan Thatcher (along with his party of adventurers) carved the place away from a once mighty goblin kingdom. It has prospered for many long decades, until now. Townsfolk are disappearing from the surrounding countryside. Goblins are on the march once more. If that wasn’t enough, a terrible blighting disease has infected the waters and not even the curative magics of the Temple of the Winds can thwart it. This is indeed a very dark time for Brighton. Too old to do anything about it himself, Thatcher has sent out a call to any adventurers who will swear their swords to his mighty town and its innocent people. Are your players hero enough to face down a growing goblin horde? Are they brave enough to fell the mighty goblin shaman, Vir-Kayik? Are they clever enough to find the source of the blight and cleanse the town’s water source? Are they the light to end these dark times in Brighton?                                        $5.00  $4.25Misty Isles of the Eld - Dude, its got a meth-fruit plantation house! Heh. I was given a print copy of this at last year's NTRPG Con. It was a trip to flip through on the flight home ;)
Come visit the acid fantasy mini-sandbox of the Misty Isles, a hellish pocket plane that's brutally displaced a bucolic paradise. Marvel at its massive grub-ridges, shake at the body horror of its protein vats—and watch as your players dynamically unleash the Anti-Chaos Index through their own in-game actions. Misty Isles of the Eld is a stand-alone sequel to Slumbering Ursine Dunes and Fever-Dreaming Marlinko. What's inside its 104 pages:
-Four dungeons. The Vat Complex (with its menacing sealed off-west wing, body-horrific industrial process and pocket dimensions), the flying god-prison Monument Five, the meth-fruit Plantation House and Colonel Zogg's Pagoda Bunker.
-Full “extra-planar” pointcrawl. The wilderness crawl spreads over one main isle and two smaller islets subdivided by massive, movable grubs.
-An “Anti-Chaos Index.” Through their actions the players shape the very reality of the Isles. Sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worst, but always for the weird.
-A slew of new otherwordly monsters.
-A large collection of bizarre technological Eldish artifacts and treasure. Includes a random generator for miscellaneous artifacts picked up.
-A new psionicist player class, the Psychonaut, with a soft scifi twist. Including its own powers and mutations.                                          $12.00  $10.20 For the complete Tenkar's Tavern series of posts highlighting the notable picks of the OSR Extravaganza Sale, follow this link.

OSR Extravaganza Sale - OSRIC Adventures Bundle - 8 Adventures for 10 Bucks

Tenkar's Tavern - Fri, 05/26/2017 - 13:47
Expeditious Retreat Press is offering a bundle of OSRIC Adventures from their Advanced Adventures line - 8 adventures in PDF for $10 bucks. At that price it's hard to go wrong. So, what's in the bundle you might ask?

The Lost Keys of Solitude is an OSRIC(TM) module designed for 6-8 adventurers of levels 6-10.

While traveling through the foothills of the Garvain Mountains, your party found refuge for the night in a hermit's cave. In the morning, you wake to find the hermit and all his possessions gone, all except for two golden tiles: one embossed with the image of a bull with his hrons down and ready to charge, the other a tiger poised and ready to pounce. When the tiles are placed next to each other so that the bull and tiger face one another, the embossed images move, fusing the two pieces into one. The newly created image is the bull and tiger locked in combat. The fused piece is easily separated, and when separated, the images of the bull and tiger return to norm...

Stonesky Delve is An OSRIC(tm) module designed for 6-10 adventures of levels 4-7.

Giant Stonesky Mountain has been a spiritual home for the Dwarves since the first clan received the 4 Pillars of the Underearth from Motsognir. The voice of the dwarven deity purified the halls and caves under Stonesky and the mountain has been a sanctified place for all the various dwarven peoples. And now, as lamentable dwarven internal conflicts rage on, a new entrance into the Stonesky has prompted an exploratory party. Unwilling to send his own into the dark hole when they are so desperately needed elsewhere, the local Hlaford's hired you for your delving expertise. Your mission - enter, explore, map, and do not return to the surface until the passing of three days!

The Frozen Wave Satsuma is An OSRIC(tm) module designed for 6-8 adventures of levels 3-5.

A bank of frigid fog rolls down the northern coasts, bringing seaborne raiders sacking villages and temples along the way. Survivors wail of strange-speaking men in stranger armor, wielding weapons unseen in civilized lands. All know that the fog must hide a larger ship of some equally strange design, for the raiders strike from small boats which would surely capsize in the open seas.

What dangers await upon the cold and windy ocean? What terrible foreign ship lurks within the haze, hiding like a lion upon the wine-dark sea? Into this fog travels the intrepid party - seeking to solve the mystery of The Frozen Wave Satsuma!

The Riddle of Anadi is an OSRIC(tm) module designed for 5-7 adventures of levels 6-10.

The ancient name of Anadi is legendary among sages, mystics, and wizards throughout the land. It was the Great Sage herself who researched countless magical rituals and spells commonly used today. Yet none know what ultimately became of Anadi; rumors abound that she ascended to godhood, she was enslaved by some demon of the nether planes, or that she simply died and is buried in some long forgotten location.

The Obsidian Sands of Syncrates is an OSRIC(tm) module designed for 6-10 adventures of levels 4-7. It was the tournament adventure at GenCon Indy 2011.

Returning from a successful trading voyage to far-away lands, the party's ship is stranded in the doldrums. After two days without any wind, the sky darkens and small particles of black ash fall like a dark snow. The party's two native guide-translators panic and begin wildly yelling, quickly whipping themselves into a fury of fear. Faster than the group can react, the two guides pull their small knives and stab themselves in the chest repeatedly as they jump over the side of the ship...

Redtooth Ridge is an OSRIC(tm) module designed for 6-10 adventurers of levels 1-3.The plain wooden cup the dryad Aralina needs for her great oak’s rebirth has been stolen by creeping foul things! Small, man-like, creatures with great heads assaulted her and, in the confusion, pick-pocketed the cup before fleeing towards Redtooth Ridge. Without her cup, her tree with die before it can reproduce and she will die with it. In her distress, she has offered a reward of a beautiful coral necklace in exchange for her plain wooden cup. The call has gone out and surely a party exists willing to assault Redtooth Ridge?

The Red Mausoleum: The populated regions north of the Sistermoors have enjoyed over a century of respite from the wars that once plagued the area. However, within the past year, baronial patrols have reported clashes with undead and other dark creatures brave enough to strike out from the moors into the forests of men and elves. The Baron’s sage suspects that the undead issue out of the mysterious ancient landmark known as the Red Mausoleum located somewhere on the wild stretches of the moors!

The Seven Shrines of Nav'k-Qar is An OSRIC(tm) module designed for 6-8 adventurers of levels 8-12.

Nav'k-Qar! A name lost to antiquities and feared only by scholars who know of the dread toad god's former power... once surrounded by a cult which performed the most vile and evil acts in his honor. Now that all of his followers are long dead and the temples of the Gray One completely destroyed, the final resting place of the cult's last riches has been a source of speculation for generations. At long last, one scholar discovered the location of that elusive shrine, the greatest one of all... the fabled Seven Shrines!

Do you have the strength, knowledge and skill to penetrate the horrors of that dread place and wrest the vast treasure from the jaws of the Gray One himself?

Mortzengersturm Review on Gnome Stew

Sorcerer's Skull - Fri, 05/26/2017 - 11:00

John Arcadian at Gnome Stew has a positive review of Mortzengersturm up today.
Here's a shipping update on the original batch of print copy orders: All U.S. orders here shipped as of Tuesday. The last two foreign orders I plan to put in the mail today.

PUBLISHER: Chapterhouse
WRITER: Fernando Ruiz and Dan Parent
ILLUSTRATOR: Fernando Ruiz and Dan Parent
INKS: Rich Koslowski
COLOR: Glenn Whitmore
LETTERS: Janice Chiang
EDITOR: Tony White
COVER A: Fernando Ruiz
COVER B: Dan Parent
PRICE: $3.99
SUMMARY: Kitty Ravencraft, the beautiful magical witch, and star of her own comic book, returns! This time Kitty is on top of the World! Her new comic book series is a huge success and she’s once again the talk of the comic shops! Naturally, Kitty’s publisher wants to capitalize on her new-found popularity with a big budget blockbuster Kitty movie! To make this happen, Kitty goes off to Hollywood, but once again she finds herself in danger! Die Kitty Die: Hollywood Or Bust will be Kitty’s biggest… scariest… and funniest adventure yet! It will be magical. Hopefully, she’ll survive!
COMMENTS: We start off with a Lil’ Archie Kitty story. The story is more like Billy Mummy’s Twilight Zone episode “It’s a Good Life” than Lil’ Archie. Don’t make Lil’ Kitty angry, you wouldn’t like her when she’s angry. In the second story, there is a biting commentary on the comic industry in general and a cameo by Fernando Ruiz. Kitty is off to Hollywood to make a movie version of her comic book. In Hollywood she battles the Hexecutioner, a villain with bad puns, make that really bad puns but he proves to be more than a match for kitty.

Best Review Ever! FREELANCE #3

First Comics News - Fri, 05/26/2017 - 06:24

PUBLISHER: Chapterhouse
WRITER: Jim Zub and Andrew Wheeler
ILLUSTRATOR: Vaneda Vireak and Cindy Leong
LETTERS: Andrew Thomas
EDITOR: Aaron Feldman
COVER: Alex Perkins
PRICE: $3.99
SUMMARY: Terror on the racetrack! In the penultimate issue of the series, Apollyon has activated the Breach Key in Istanbul, and only Lance and his team stand in the way of total destruction. But when one member gets kidnapped, Lance must outrace the clock if he hopes to save the world – and his friend.
COMMENTS: Apollyon has taken the Break key and John. Now Lance and Tasha must save humanity. We discover the deep affection John has for Lance but are still unsure if it is reciprocal. We assume that Lance loves John too, but we never hear it from Lance. Tasha and her mother are reunited. To top everything off we have a globe-trotting adventure, in the tradition of Even Bourne or James Bond that takes us to Pripyat, Ukraine. I didn’t know it was called anything but Chernobyl. It’s a lot of action and little story this issue. It will be a great middle chapter of the eventual TPB but as a stand alone issue, it felt like a middle chapter.
