Kickstarter/Indiegogo of the Week: TMNT Adventures

Somehow I missed this coming. Apparently, I’ve been really just not been paying enough attention, and just missed it. I had specifically planned a playthrough of TMNT: Shadows of the Past in the fall with some other Turtle fans that was to be live streamed on The Watch. Through a combination of bad luck and more bad luck, that game never happened. Thankfully we were able to pull together a game last week, and it was a blast! It was a bit chaotic, but you can watch the archived stream at the bottom of this Spotlight. It was during that game I found out this campaign was launching, and we’re here today which is what’s important.

This campaign covers not one, but two new games in the Adventures game system by Kevin Wilson...

Marvel Action: Avengers #1

We here at Geekorama rarely review Marvel comics. That’s not an indication of support or lack thereof, it’s just the way the business goes. So when Marvel Action: Avengers came into my review queue I was curious and a bit confused. Why is there an IDW watermark on this file? The short version is that Marvel hasn’t really done many actual COMICS targeted at younger demographics for some time. IDW, meanwhile, has a great stable of talent that does it exceedingly well. Basically, Marvel shopped it out. That works.

Being aimed at the 8-12 year old market could be a disaster, so I was pleasantly surprised...

Batman/The Maxx: Arkham Dreams #2-3

At the end of my review of Issue #1 of this five-issue miniseries I pointed out that readers who are new to The Maxx might find themselves a bit lost. I said, “Just roll with it, and enjoy the ride.” If you are that lost person and found you couldn’t heed my advice, stop now. The story isn’t going to suddenly pop into clarity for you in Issue #2.

Issue #1 closed in Arkham Asylum, with Dr. Disparu connecting Penguin into the system that allows him to tap into the subconscious world of The Outback. Meanwhile in The Outback, The Maxx and Batman found themselves in the tentacles of a giant Deadly Poisonous Air Blowfish. Issue #2 opens just a few moments later, with the duo slicing their way free, turning the Blowfish into a Salvador Dali-esque blob, with Penguin’s face...

Batman/The Maxx: Arkham Dreams #1

I can’t remember the last time I was legitimately excited to read Bat-anything. I was excited to read this. The Maxx is a hero I’ve always loved, I his much too short-lived TV run as part of MTV’s Oddities, and I loved the comic. Due to a number of factors, I’ve only read about 1/3 of The Maxx series, even with several reprints over the years, although this title allowed me to discover an upcoming omnibus collection coming in the near future. But that’s another story for another review. Today we are looking at what happens when you drop The Maxx into the slums of Gotham and when you drop Batman into the wilds of The Outback in Maxx’s head.

Issue #1 opens in The Outback of Maxx’s mind, as he gives us a brief setup of something strange happening there...

Justice Soars into the 21st Century with Rocketeer Reborn

A Modern-Day Hero Dons the Iconic Helmet and Jetpack in December

SAN DIEGO, CA  – The Rocketeer, the pulp-inspired hero immortalized by the late, great Dave Stevens, blasts off once more in December with the first issue of a brand-new five issue IDW series: Rocketeer Reborn!

Writers Elsa Charretier and Pierrick Colinet (collaborators on Star Wars Adventures and The Infinite Loop) and artist Javier Pulido (Human Target, Hawkeye) reintroduce an all-new jetpack wearing hero into the 21st century.

In Rocketeer Reborn, eighty years have passed since Cliff Secord first found an experimental jetpack and soared through the skies as a high-flying hero. Now, decades later, The Rocketeer is all but forgotten to most people, a legend of a bygone era...
