What’s Killing My Social Life This Week – Dungeon of the Endless

Are you tired of these games that… fuck it, I’m not doing an introductory paragraph this time.

Dungeon of the Endless (not to be confused with, Legend of the Dungeon, Dungeonland or I-have-no-creativity-when-it-comes-to-naming-my-game) is, according to that Face Recognition app, a 48-year-old squirrel with one gammy eye and an eating disorder. The story is similar to Risk of Rain’s in almost every way; you are a person/s on a prison ship heading towards a place of unknown place-ness, when suddenly you crash down on an alien planet due to the actions of a particularly aggressive plot-device. Finding yourself in what’s presumably a mutant-infested, underground research lab, you have to use your wit, strength and charisma to escape in as few pieces as possible. The game itself is a weird hybrid of TDs, Dungeon crawlers, RPGs and resource-management games with a few rogue like elements sprinkled on top. Oh and also it has a Tutu. Did I mention the tutu? Twice now, you reply.

Evil Geeks Book Report – IDW’s Jem & The Holograms is Truly, Truly Outrageous!

 

jem2

Jem and the girls in their original form!

Being that I was born in the early 90’s, ‘Jem’ is just a bit before my time, but I can recall the first time I saw an episode some years back. These glam rockers with fierce fashion, a sassy can-do attitude and strong enforcers of friendship/sisterhood immediately sucked me into their world, so I asked for the DVD box set for Christmas and watched the whole thing in marathon form. From ‘The Misfits’ horrifying attempts to blow up an orphanage (yes, you read that right) to thwart their musical arch-rivals, The Holograms, to Roxy’s illiteracy, to that time Jem took in an orphan with a pill problem, this show had it all.

“We are the Misfits, our songs are better…” don’t lie, you sang it too.

So naturally, I was completely disappointed when I found out that the movie would have, literally, zero ties to the classic show I had come to know and love. I almost wish you all could have seen my face when I watched the trailer, which might as well have been ‘Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants’ with music. Maybe. I didn’t even hear them play in the trailer, I don’t think.

When I heard the comic was amazing, I was a little skeptical, because the film trailer crushed my expectations and I didn’t want another disappointment. This weekend I picked up the first two issues and was floored at how amazing they were.

Comic Book Panel of the Day 5/22/15

Afternoon Geeks!

Today’s Panel of the Day comes from Justice League #38 from Geoff Johns & Jason Fabok and it’s pretty cool. I’m on my summer break so with that brings a ton of reading for me to catch up on all things going on and I have to say that I’m really impressed with Mr. Fabok’s work on the series. This arc is called The Amazo Virus, which was created by Lex Luthor and mistakenly released on the world. The virus effects both humans and metahumans and as you can see here turns them into somewhat hive-mind zombies.

This panel just stuck out to me in the arc, Batman’s gestures are almost puppet-like but the visuals on his face and everyone around are zombie-like. Imagine mind-controlled walkers! Here, check it out:

Justice League 38

This is only the 2nd arc that I’ve caught up on so far, but the Amazo Virus is a pretty cool read with some amazing visuals…Check it out!

Later Nerds!

A Collection Of Dave Steven’s Rocketeer Art

The Rocketeer has become a beloved character in the rich history of the American pulp genre. Creator, Dave Stevens claimed to not enjoy being an interior artist but preferred doing covers and it shows. I decided to collect some of my favorite Rocketeer covers and pinups Stevens did for the series. I think you’ll agree that this really allowed his design flair and figure work to really shine.
