Introducing Jodie Whittaker – The Thirteenth Doctor Who

First Comics News - Mon, 07/17/2017 - 02:37

Jodie Whittaker has been announced as the Thirteenth Doctor.

The identity of the new Doctor was revealed exclusively on BBC One and on social media around the world after the Men’s Wimbledon Final on Sunday 16th July.

She will be the Thirteenth Time Lord and take over from Peter Capaldi who leaves the global hit show at Christmas.

New head writer and executive producer Chris Chibnall who takes over from Steven Moffat on the next series made the decision to cast the first ever woman in the iconic role.

Jodie Whittaker says: “I’m beyond excited to begin this epic journey – with Chris and with every Whovian on this planet. It’s more than an honour to play the Doctor. It means remembering everyone I used to be, while stepping forward to embrace everything the Doctor stands for: hope. I can’t wait.”

Chris Chibnall, New Head Writer and Executive Producer says :
“After months of lists, conversations, auditions, recalls, and a lot of secret-keeping, we’re excited to welcome Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor.
I always knew I wanted the Thirteenth Doctor to be a woman and we’re thrilled to have secured our number one choice. Her audition for The Doctor simply blew us all away. Jodie is an in-demand, funny, inspiring, super-smart force of nature and will bring loads of wit, strength and warmth to the role. The Thirteenth Doctor is on her way.”

Peter Capaldi says : “Anyone who has seen Jodie Whittaker’s work will know that she is a wonderful actress of great individuality and charm. She has above all the huge heart to play this most special part. She’s going to be a fantastic Doctor.”

Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content says :
“Making history is what Doctor Who is all about and Chris Chibnall’s bold new take on the next Time Lord is exactly that. The nation is going to fall in love with Jodie Whittaker – and have lots of fun too!”

Piers Wenger, Controller BBC Drama says : “Jodie is not just a talented actor but she has a bold and brilliant vision for her Doctor. She aced it in her audition both technically and with the powerful female life force she brings to the role. She is destined to be an utterly iconic Doctor.”

Matt Strevens, Executive Producer says : “I’m so thrilled that Jodie Whittaker said yes to playing the Doctor. I’ve been a fan for years and always hoped to work with her. She is an actor of great emotional range and inhabits every role with complete passion and conviction. Just thinking about what she will bring to the Doctor makes me as excited as a kid at Christmas. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Playtest Impressions - Bunny & Burrows Light - No Animals Were Truly Killed in the Playtesting of These Rules

Tenkar's Tavern - Mon, 07/17/2017 - 02:11

Friday night I was asked an important question: "Do you know of anyone that might like to playtest the Bunnies & Burrows Light rules?" What a loaded question! I spent hours talking with Dr. Sustare one night at NTRPG Con about Swords & Wizardry Light, a new edition of Bunnies & Burrows and the idea of Dennis putting together a "Light" version of the Bunnies & Burrows rules. My answer was "Send me the rules and I'll run it tomorrow night!" and they did and I did.

I sent the rules, character sheets and cards to my Saturday Night Irregulars and assembled out bunny posses. We had three bunnies. I suggested someone name one of their bunnies Hugh Humpalot but wisely no one bit at it.

The bunnies, all young, had to find some Rabbit Flower at a nearby marsh to help heal their den mother who was suffering from an as yet undefined disease.

It really does change the whole narrative when gold and treasure is not the driving force behind an adventure (because even ones that have other motives driving the action still supply opportunities to loot the dead)

Our brave bunnies:

- didn't find and didn't fall into a trap.

- hopped / climbed a tree for a better view, as they had no map (bunnies don't map) and just a vague direction of the marsh they needed to locate.

- were pounced on by a persian kitty who got rabbit punched to an early grave. Rumors that humping bunnies were running amok after their victory is greatly exagerated.

- located the marsh ad Rabbit Flower, but now it was dark

- drove a snake from the hollow of a tree trunk so they would have protection from predators over the night's passing.

- were attacked by and drove off a dachshund (the fact that my wiener dog was barking in the background for the prior half hour simply added to the scene)

- found and fell into that trap they missed the first time

- got the Rabbit Flower to their mother in times to heal her.

Created characters and ran the adventure in about 2 and a half hours with another 15 minutes of post playtest critique.

Damn but I'm looking forward to more Bunnies & Burrows.

Publisher Titan Comics
Script: Brian Wood
Art: Marco Turini
Colors: Marco Lesko
Lettering: John Workman
Cover: Stanley “Artgerm” Lau
Variant Covers: Nick Roche, Karl Kerschl, Blair Shedd, Giannis Milonogiannis, Michael Dialynas, Waltrip brothers,
Price: $ 3.99 US
Rating: 2 out of 5 stars
Website: www.titan-comics.com
Comments: The Robotech combines alien and human technology. The SDF-1 is an amazing sight this space ship is impressive. It is beautifully color and imaginatively designed.
There is an attack going on but who is attacking and why? Who are all these people in the story? The only one that you truly get to know a little is the Captain of the SDF-1.
Beautiful art in this issue but the story explains next to nothing about what is going on and who the characters in this issue are.
The animation this is based on, the cartoon shows were great. This comic book should follow them more.
The SDF-1 stands out here as one high-tech space ship that is made to handle anything.

First Comics News - Sun, 07/16/2017 - 21:14

Title: Pitiful Human-Lizard # 13
Publisher: Chapter House Comics
Creator/Story/Art/Cover: Jason Loo
Colour Assists: Meaghan Carter
Price: $ 4.99 US
Rating: out of 5 stars
Websites: www.chapterhousecomics.ca , www.facebook.com/pitifulhumanlizard
Comments: The Human-Lizard rides a streetcar. It is a small world as Lucas talks to the streetcar driver. Lucas sure looks beat up.
The driver Sam gives Lucas a pep talk. The other passengers stand up for the Human-Lizard which is wonderful to see. Even super-heroes need back up. No action or excitement here but we do get a sample look at the people of Toronto and how they treat their own super-hero the Human-Lizard.
The comic ends with twelve pages of ads that is way to many.
Lady Accident appears briefly she is cool. The monster she is fighting is one big red creature ready to destroy.
It is always great to see Lucas as just a guy who happens to be a super-hero. He is the Human-Lizard but still he is Lucas first and foremost. He is an everyday man that we can all identify with.
