Robotech Issue 8

Robotech Issue 8

Writers:  Brian Wood   Simon Furman  Artist:  Marco Turini

Legendary Transformers scribe Simon Furman joins writer Brian Wood (DMZ) to chronicle the ongoing adventures of the SDF-!!

Concluding the second arc of the best-selling fan favorite series!

Note – Brian Wood has had issues in the past with sexually harassing an artist – http://womenwriteaboutcomics.com/2013/11/15/tess-fowler-brian-wood-and-harassment-in-the-comic-industry/

That may not affect some readers, but some wish to be informed and consume their entertainment in greater context.

Now onto the comic.  I say the biggest problem with a Robotech comic is that it’s been adapted so many times before, it’s hard to come up with a new take while staying faithful to the original story...

Kickstarter Review – Lili: The Demoness

(Click On The Pic for the KS -Note: NSFW)

For this Kickstarter Spotlight we have decided to interview a creator of an upcoming Kickstarter, Luis Torres –

For those who would be new readers, can you tell us more about Lili The Demoness and Whispers In Necropolis?

 Whispers in Necropolis is a horror anthology I created to give my short stories a home. Since I was a teenager I have always wanted to put together my own comic. I remember my cousin and I would write and draw out a few pages. For years and years everything just went dormant in my head. In 2015 I met at a few indie comic creators at a con and just listening to what they had to say just brought it all back. In my opinion monsters are scary but what is more scary is the evils of what the average man can do...

Ash Williams is late to the party. And by party, we mean traveling back in time to fight the Army of Darkness. Things look pretty bleak for the Chosen One until he finds out he has some new allies…the rock’n’roll warriors known as KISS!

Kiss and Evil Dead (or I guess technically Army of Darkness) have different pedigrees when it comes to their stories and adaptations and for me that colors my expectations and enjoyment of this comic.

The biggest issue is right now Ash Vs Evil Dead is on it’s 3rd Season on Stars and it’s so much fun in it’s crude and gory way.

That means the bar is raised high for the comic to ca...

Kickstarter/Indiegogo Spotlight – The Dinosaur Protocol (for Savage Worlds)

The Dinosaur Protocol (for Savage Worlds)

A post-apocalyptic table top role playing game of adventure and discovery in the jungles and plains of a world grown wild and strange.

Disclaimer – I am friends with one of the authors of this Kickstarter, Jonathan M. Thompson.

When I first heard about this Kickstarter, I thought it would be so cool to play as Dinosaurs. Reading it more closely though it’s actually about playing as humans with Dinosaurs on the Earth.  The main setting is about how Dinosaurs have returned to modern day times, but there are several other alternative settings to use the rule sets with.

I have only used one Battlefield Press book in the past and that was the Gaslight: Vi...

Kickstarter Spotlight – Robotech RPG Tactics

For this Kickstarter Spotlight, we’re not celebrating a KS that deserves more support, we are talking about one massive one that has gone awry.  Kickstarter has successfully funded a lot of great nerdy and fun projects, but there’s been a few big failures as well.

We inform you of this so you’ll be aware when you do support a KS and you’re well informed of the pros and cons of a supporting a KS.

Palladium Books

Palladium is a long time maker of Table Top Role Playing Games.  I knew them as a young high school kid because they made the Robotech RPGs.  It was quite thrilling to play in the world that I saw on TV.

Years later with the board game boom, they did a Kickstarter for Robotech® RPG Tactics (RRT), a fast paced s...
