Gaming Point Of Lou: A “Wicked” Little Strategy Game

July 10, 2017 Author: Lou Federico

TOP O’ THE TABLE – WICKED APPLES For my first “official” Pint assignment, Supreme Overlord Ganache (heretofore referred to as SOG from this point forward) decreed that I would be playtesting, and reviewing a game entitled “Wicked Apples”. Fearing for the safety of myself, and my family, I humbly agreed to accept this task, and Read More

Rise of the Dungeon Master – A Review

July 8, 2017 Author: Jon Johnson (Sir)

It’s hard to say when Gary Gygax affected me the most. I recall marveling over his alliterative name, wondering how it was pronounced, if it was real, and if it was, if he liked it. I thought ‘Gygax’ was cool, myself. It wasn’t any surprise to me then, when variations on the name popped up Read More

The Ringo Awards

July 7, 2017 Author: Jon Johnson (Sir)

Mike Wieringo was a fan-favorite artist known for his long stretches of work with writer Mark Waid, at both Marvel and DC Comics. His art was fresh and stylistically distinct, that of a true comic book professional. Sadly, he left the mortal coil far too soon, in 2007, at the age of 44. Leaving a Read More

The Suicide Squad – Legends

February 6, 2016 Author: Jon Johnson (Sir)

LEGENDS, the six-issue series printed in 1987 from DC Comics, was the essential sequel to the world-changing CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS. It was meant to be a reintroduction to the DC Universe as well as a stand alone series that might be a primer to the characters and groups DC was publishing at the time. Read More

A Novel Review: Made to Kill

January 26, 2016 Author: Jon Johnson (Sir)

It isn’t often that a book catches me with its cover, but Adam Christopher’s Made to Kill did just that. Two dimensional art deco of a robot in a trenchcoat and fedora? You better believe I’d check that out. Published by Tor Books late last year, Made to Kill tells the story of Raymond Electromatic, Read More

January 25, 2016 Author: Jon Johnson (Sir)

Spreading the word about excellent comic book series has always been a passion of mine.
