Punderdome

28801061From the daughter-father duo that created Brooklyn’s beloved live pun competition comes Punderdome, the “Punderful card game [that] will replace Cards Against Humanity at your next party” (Mashable.com).

One part game, one part conversation starter, you don’t need to be a pun master to master Punderdome: the goal is to make bad jokes and have fun along the way.

A player (the prompter for that round) draws two prompt cards from the deck, and then reads the prompts to the rest of the group, who have 90 seconds to create a single, groan-worthy pun that combines the two prompts.

When time is up, pun makers share their puns with the prompter, who awards the prompt cards to the player whose pun he or she likes best. The winner then draws the next pair of prompt cards and the process repeats...

The Human Cannonball

460101_474342479246839_1526579647_oWalter Dorckley is not much good at music, art or academics. The main thing that he enjoys is playing with explosives, or in his own words, “blowing myself up”. Inspired by a trip to the circus, he determines that his only hope to escape the small grungy town in which he resides, and his small grungy life, is to apprentice himself to Sidelong Sidely, the human cannonball.

Back at S.P.A.C.E., I met this guy. I actually met him when he was stealing my sandwich. Okay, he didn’t realize that it was my sandwich and he was taking it. In the end, I was nice and let him have it and he was nice and gave me the first issue of his series to check out.  Last night, I finally had the opportunity to pull it out of the stack and read it...

Apama The Undiscovered Animal

SUB001806._SX640_QL80_TTD_Hungarian ice cream truck driver, Iliya Zjarsky, goes hiking one day and discovers the animal spirit of the most powerful creature mankind has never known. Soon he unlocks the powers of the ‘Apama’ and hits the streets of Cleveland in an offbeat series unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

Like nothing I’ve ever seen…and yet, somehow familiar.  I have no idea why, but I kind of want to insert spooky type music here. However, since that would be more than a little silly, let’s jump into Apama!

You may recall that a bit ago I attended SPACE down in Columbus. While there, I met the writer of this tome and he was kind enough to send me back to the office with it in hand...
