The Dungeon #1

Deep within the bowels of the Dungeon, paradise bred. It was a place where the rejected were welcomed, safe, isolated, yet highly exclusive. If there were a place where sin could live in heaven, it would be called Castle Deyshaud. Possessed by an evil supernatural entity, protected by a fascist security force of werewolves known as the Ookami, the structure whose walls granted men the most amazing talents, gifts and abilities to anyone inside could make the weakest man strong, the fattest man fit, and change the most hideous to the most desired. That was until the impossible happened. One dark soul mastered the magic of the Dungeon against its most powerful warriors and killed them while masquerading as one of their own...

Very Near Mint Vol. 1

Sam Jones and Colin Turner own the Splash Page, a pretty rad comic shop. They have a new employee, Nate, and Colin’s ex-girlfriend, Mackenzie, is back in town. Everything seems like it’s pretty great. That is, until this week’s new comics don’t show up, and a rival comic book shop opens across the street, and all hell breaks loose.

The Good
How could I not enjoy a book like this as a comic fan and all around geek?  It’s practically a graphic novel of “a day in the life of comic shop owners”, but with an interesting fictional book twist.  I personally appreciated what I felt was a Clerks influence, in both characters and humor.  I also like that it does a good job of taking stereotypes from comic fandom but not overdoing it.

The Bad
It’s too soon to make any overall op...

Angry Birds Star Wars

I love physics-based games, Angry Birds, and Star Wars. So, when these three things came together to make a pop-culture trifecta, I was thrilled. I had been waiting anxiously ever since they announced it in October (“What? I have to wait until *November*?!”).  When the morning of November 8th came, I’d like to tell you that I sat with my finger hovering over the button in the app store.  But alas, I had nearly forgotten about it (I should have set a reminder), but one of my friends on Facebook was nice enough to post about it. I scrambled to my iPhone and downloaded it immediately.  It could have been 9.99 and I still probably would have bought it (with a split-second thought for justification), but $.99 later and I was in.  It runs wonderfully (I’m running iOS6.0...
