2015-11-03 [Marvel] New Avengers 1

The group looks okay. They're trying to add humour which is good. They have to deal with SHIELD which is tiresome for the reader.

The first issue gives you a taste of what to expect but falls a little flat.

The Justice League International, er, I mean the New Avengers;

So, I get this adult comic book, and no, not the regular cover but the cover I can't see because it's polybagged. I haven't done this since my teeny bopper years.

I had hoped for some fun kinky stuff with laughs. What I got was a couple cute frames and a long rant about how women are oppressed as if today is the same as it was 85 years ago. 1930 meet 2015, unless you're this writer who thinks it's still 1930 and has a chip on their shoulder.

Mockingbird was a good addition and
some of the humour worked but overall
it was underwhelming and very...

Volume 4: Nomads of Gor

Immediately the prose feels different, smoother, less arcane and far less fun. The heavy descriptions start coming and much information is given to the reader with statements like "I learned later that..."

With so much information and so little action, this book moves slowly. The prose starts to right itself just...

Back to the Minis

I recently started painting miniatures with . I suspect it's been 10+ years since I tried my hand at this hobby. I never much cared for it and only painted so I could use. For example...

'Zine Review: Tales From The GAME TAVERN Halloween Issue 2015

I've never reviewed a 'zine so this will be a first.

I haven't really dealt with gaming 'zines since before the Internet was graphical. Certainly I've checked out more mainstream forays like Dragon and Gygax.

I can't accurately describe my excitement when this arrived in the mail so quickly from the States. It was so inexpensive. It arrived promptly. It was tuned to the upcoming Halloween...

Volume 3: Priest-Kings of Gor

This volume is thicker than the previous two. It starts off right where the last ended.

Where the first volume is a fast moving fun house and the second volume a similar adventure as an excuse to get to the third volume. This third volume is about the truth behind the myths of Gor.

Volume 2: Outlaw of Gor

Perhaps not as quickly as the first book in the series, I blew through the second volume. I guess I see how people lambaste the author with.... You know, I really don't. It takes a lot of reach to rip these two books apart. I keep waiting for the problems that supposedly drag this series through the mud. This is adventure.
