FreakAngels

Mostly when I get the chance, I blather on here about games.

Here's a bit of blather about comics. A new webcomic, to be exact.

Warren Ellis and Paul Duffield's FreakAngels.

Post-Modern Post-Apocalypse meets Midwich Cuckoos, if I have it right after two installments (each six pages long). It reminds me of a campaign idea I had earlier, Jericho meets Heroes.

Normally I think Ellis is way overhyped, but this I like. And the art is quite nice, too. Very realistic and yet with a slight dash of otherworldly, apropos for the setting. I look forward to reading this for some time to come.

Long time no post...

It has been a while since I've posted. I've been quite busy getting the first issue of Adventure Games Journal finished and out to subscribers; now I'm working on the first Campaign Installment, the Player's Guide to the Southern Reaches, and hope to have that finished soon and off to layout.

I've been able to get a little gaming in, in between things, but the weather really has been the big game-blocker lately. We've had four sessions of the Outremer 4130 Campaign so far; I'm way behind on writing up the campaign log, unfortunately, but will post it here when I get it done. Next session is tomorrow night, weather permitting, though I doubt it will...

More later when time permits.
