Project Superpowers: Hero Killers #5

Project Superpowers: Hero Killers #5 is the last issue of this beautifully snarky mini-series from Dynamite. There’s a little bit of everything here. Ray guns, retaliation, retribution, resurrection, re-killing, redemption, and a bunch of weird creatures.

Actually, that’s all I’m going to give you. If you weren’t already convinced by my last four issues worth of reviews, giving you more details won’t change your mind now. In fact, you don’t even get another random clickbait link, so there. Ryan Browne and Pete Woods have kept me entertained for the last five months, I have no doubt they will do the same for you.

Last month I threatened to give this issue only a single star just for ending, but honestly I can’t give it less than the 4 out of 5 stars that it has been sitting at ...

The Shadow #2 (2017)

When I wrote my review of The Shadow #1, I mentioned what a big fan I was of old time radio (OTR) shows in general, and The Shadow specifically. Dynamite’s newest series of The Shadow has so far only shown us the titular character in flashbacks and news reports. Issue #2 continues that, as we see The Shadow launch an assault on a mansion in upstate New York that ends in the entire building burning to the ground killing everyone inside.

The scene then perfectly transitions to a newscast covering the fallout of the fire, and then to the hospital room of an amnesiac burn patient and Mary, the medical student who has been working with him (off the record) to recover his memory...

Campy Creatures

I’m just going to say this to start: Campy Creatures from Keymaster Games is one of the most gorgeously illustrated card games I’ve played in a VERY long time.

There are three main types of game components in a Campy Creatures box: Creature Cards, Mortal Cards, and other components. Working backwards: the components include a well laid out rule book that feels thematically suitable, a small “Clash-o-Meter” board for breaking ties and keeping score, individual player markers for the Clash-o-Meter, and individual “Creeples” for the score track.

Each player gets the same individual Creature Deck, composed of nine different Creature Cards numbered 0-8...

Dastardly & Muttley (2017-) #1

Have you ever gone to a movie and left going,”What did I just watch?” It’s not that you didn’t enjoy it, it probably had a stellar cast (with extra cool cameos), most likely it was a genre parody, and you really wanted to love it. But, “What did I just watch? Also, why is this even a thing?” Then the inexplicable sequel comes out, and you go watch that, more out of morbid curiousity than anything.

That’s sort of how I felt after reading Dastardly & Muttley. These have always been a couple of my favorite Hanna-Barbera characters. I always cheered for them to win the Wacky Races cartoon, and even with the drastic re-design for the post-apocalyptic reboot Wacky Raceland, I found them the be the most compelling characters in the series...
