After nearly a decade with the company, I am leaving an amazing job and moving to Colorado to take an amazing job. Any forumites in the Greenwood/Parker area?

I'm in the process of moving to another state, but I have the game and a PS4 - we'll friend up as soon as I land in Colorado at the end of the month.

I had no idea they were planning to reprint Alpha Flight #6.

Certainly compelling as a piece of art, but I agree with Farrell, I don't think it's comics.

It's really creepy how Damian became Freddy Mercury.

I'll be 40 in a year, but today I felt like a 13 year old again.

Stopped by the comic shop to pick up new stuff. On the way home I wanted to try this new gyro shop I spotted, so I walked in and noticed an arcade cabinet with Donkey Kong all over it. Placed my order and while I waited went over to see what's up. It was one of those multi-game cabinets, popped in a quarter, picked Donkey Kong Jr. ate shit. Roll On Floor Laughing

I could have sworn I would remember how to play this game!

Popped in another quarter. Did a little better, but still ate shit. Roll On Floor Laughing

I think I'm going to have to snag DKjr for the 3DS soon. I loved this game, and sucking so badly at it now is just unacceptable! Whistle

When my order was ready, I stepped out of the shop and headed West to a cross walk, an Avengers movie pinball table in a coffee shop caught my eye. Rock Horns

Stopped in. Ordered a fancy iced coffee, got change for the pinball machine, and played two games of Stern's Avengers pinball.

It's crazy feeling like I haven't changed as a person in nearly 40 years. I'm making a bit more money. Can draw better than I used to, but at the end of the day - still that fat nerd kid who loves Donkey Kong Jr and pinball. Yes

 The more things change, the more they stay the same! Cheers from a fellow fat kid who still raws!

For more rock influence I would recommend the Megas (get acoustic) which is an album about the game megaman - Great stuff. There's also Kirby Krackle which is hit or miss, but super catchy with a few songs like ring capacity.

These are great Bean, especially that rendition of Beetle! Can't wait to see more!
15  Forums / The Book Club / Re: What else are you reading? on: 07:08 PM | Tuesday, August 26, 2014
No, it's the same. I think it's comparable to Dresden, thought probably a bit more hipster... perhaps the difference between the West Coast and Chicago. Its definitely Kadrey's most mainstream work (and, as one cold imagine, his most successful). There's a wholesomeness to Dresden I appreciate that is not in Sandman Slim, and I do take less joy from them, though I do think Butcher busted his load with Changes, which was by far his best book.

I need these toughman books every now and then again though, ala Charlie Huston's Joe Pitt or Matthew Stover's Caine.

I'm with ya on the tough-guy books, which is why I like pulp novels. I just wish the sandman books actually told us the story of how he became hell's monster and master assassin, instead of using that as a backdrop for a much more mundane set of stories.

Just got the new Kadrey in the mail, The Getaway God, a new Sandman Slim joint.

I don't really like this move to dinky books. It's a novel not One Piece. I feel like I got the dwarf edition, but it's High Elvish in this household, NYC publishing giants.  Evil

I found the first Sandman Slim book to be a disappointment and I never went back. The idea of the boogie man for demons was amazing, but it was only back matter for what proved to be a very by the numbers attempt to be Harry Dresden meets the Fanze. Does the series get better or find its voice after book one?

Very cool! I collected RPGs before I got into comics - they certainly were a huge gateway for me to get into superheroes. I will have to check this out, is there a non digital version as well?

In terms of systems I've played to death D20 and Palladium have seen the most attention from me. Of late I have really been impressed by the core mechanics of Burning Wheel. And for games that make things cinematic, the Star Wars Saga edition was a pretty sweet take on familiar mechanics as well.

Interested to hear your thoughts on SHADE which is wacky as hell. Never read any of the Hawk and Dove books pre-Liefeld. How are they?
19  Forums / The Monkees Room / Re: Comic influenced dreams on: 08:08 PM | Saturday, August 23, 2014
I don't normally. But of the few I've had, the one that comes to mind most vividly had me playing the role of a character I created at a Wayne foundation fundraiser taking place in some greenhouse on the manor grounds. I was talking to various members of the bat family when through the glass ceiling we all saw the bat signal. From there it turned into a series of awkward excuses as everyone was tying to gracefully make their exit. Minutes later we all emerge from a variety of windows and doors in costume, nearly tripping over one another in the process. Laughs ensue as we zip toward police headquarters.

Of all of the dreams I have ever written down from my teen years that was a big favorite because of how funny and strange it was.
