Back Issues / Vintage Comics
—————————————-

The proceeding is a transcript from this Monday’s Emerald City Annual Back Issue Summit press conference, held at the Clearwater Beach Hilton with members of local as well as online and foreign press in attendance. The following excerpt was taken from minutes 33 to 35 of the conference while Back Issue Secretary Justin Wallner was at the podium answering questions:

WALLNER: …No, Mr. Johnson has never enjoyed tomato juice … never; and I would be very surprised if he were interested in offering any explanation as to why and I doubt highly whether or not he would be inclined to answer any questions on the subject whatsoever. Next question and please try to make it better than that last one…Yeah, right here, you in the vest.

(Question posed by Annie Whittinger, greatbignerd.com)
WHITTINGER: Yes, Mr. Wallner, I wanted to ask about your organization’s recent acquisition of a copy of Nova, volume one, number one. Can you tell us anything about it’s condition, it’s price, as well as where or who from you may have acquired this book.

WALLNER (immeadiately peevish): Well that’s … I mean, I can tell you about the price and condition! It’s a fine plus, so that’s a six-five, and it’s sixty bucks (Fine+, 6.5, $60). As to where we got it … I mean why do you care? What difference does it make? Do you ask the butcher what the cow’s name was? Well, I guess if you weren’t nosey you wouldn’t be a reporter, right? It was a late Christmas present from former president Jimmy Carter, okay! Next question! Back issue related, PLEASE, and don’t ask me where I got the book in question. You there! Sharp glasses, by the way.

(Question posed by Thom Treasuree, Oxfordshire News)
Treasuree: Right, thank you. Mr. Wallner, Thanos is hot right now. What do you chaps have by way of something early and hard to find in the Thanos department?

WALLNER: Gotta love the English press. Take notes bloggers, that’s how a reporter asks a question at a press conference. We just got a copy of Logan’s Run number six back in. Vee-eff for sixty bucks (Very Fine, 8.0, $60). That’s the first solo Thanos story, classic Starlin, one of if not THE hardest to find early Thanos keys. We’ve only ever had a few of these come through the store, we’re glad to offer it. Last two questions folks, seriously, that breakfast buffet is screaming at me. You, right up front here.

(Question posed by Venom Jacksun, comixrkewl.com)
JACKSUN (thick Brooklyn accent): Eh’yo, Mr. Wallner, I hear there’s gonna be a Spider-Woman movie in the next wave of Marvel movies. Any truth to that and if so whatcha got fer Spider-Woman keys?

WALLNER (again peevish): Yeah, so okay … I guess that’s KIND OF back issue related. We got Marvel Spotlight thirty-two back in recently. First Jessica Drew Spider-Woman, hot book in good shape, vee-eff minus for fifty (Very Fine-, 7.5, $50). As to whether or not there’s going to be a Spider-Woman movie ask somebody at Marvel … I dunno scour the internet … that’s what you blogger types do, right “Venom”? Last question, let’s get this over with. Nice lady in the Voltron tee shirt.

(Question posed by Toby Ackerman, Entertainment Weekly – Ghana)
ACKERMAN: Mr. Wallner, graded comics are all the rage these days. Anything new and exciting in high grade?

WALLNER: Nice and concise, we like that. Yes, graded books are hot. Yes, we have some nice ones. Just got a copy of Death of Wolverine number four, CGC graded nine point eight Signature Series signed by Stan “The Man” Lee; it’s on consignment from our good friends over at Vault Collectibles, two hundred and fifty (CGC Graded 9.8, $250). Okay, I am utterly done here, I’m starving, see SOME of you people next year and if you vultures ate all the canteloupe off of that buffet I’ll be back to collect some dues! WALLNER OUT!! (Mr. Wallner then abruptly pulled the broadcast microphone from its stand atop the podium and proceeded to spike it hard against the dais, damaging the microphone and leaving a piercing wave of sustained feedback in the monitors.)

MAGIC THE GATHERING CCG: FATE REFORGED
Sarkhan Vol travels 1,280 years back in time, to change the moment that sealed Tarkir’s fate: the battle between Nicol Bolas and Ugin, the demise of the latter and all dragons of Tarkir (Crux of Fate). The clans still exist back in the time; they are not fighting each other but are constantly fending off the legion hordes of dragons that are terrorizing their world. Sarkhan meets khans of the past, like Yasova Dragonclaw. The history of Tarkir is rewritten.
Choice is a major theme of Fate Reforged. That’s why there are three cycles of modal cards in the set. The choice theme plays up the crossroads-of-history feel of the set. At higher rarities, abilities of choice are preceded by anchor words (namely, “Khans” and “Dragons”) that give them a bit of flavor.
Fate Reforged sees the return of the wedge clans of Tarkir, in an altered form. Hybrid mana makes a return and appears in the cost of some card effects, notably the khans. Although morph does not return, a new, similar mechanic, manifest, can put into play any card as a face-down 2/2 creature. An overlay card may be used as an reminder.
Two of the clans from Khans of Tarkir receive a new mechanic (which will also be featured in Dragons of Tarkir):
Abzan – Bolster N – Choose a creature with the least toughness among creatures you control. Put N +1/+1 counters on it.
Mardu – Dash – You may cast this spell for its dash cost. If you do, it gains haste, and it’s returned from the battlefield to its owner’s hand at the beginning of the next end step.
The other three clans retain their original mechanic:
Jeskai – Prowess
Sultai – Delve
Temur – Ferocious
The clans are juxtaposed with 5 dragon broods, which feature their own watermarks.
Fate Reforged comes available in Intro Packs, Booster Packs, Fat Packs, and Clash Packs.

 

MACHIKOROHARBOREXPANSION

MACHI KORO: THE HARBOR EXPANSION
Machi Koro: Harbor Expansion expands the Machi Koro base game by adding thirteen new types of cards: ten new establishments, one new starting establishment, and two new landmarks. The expansion adds more complexity to the game, including seaports and airports that can be upgraded with additional boats (in the case of seaports) or facilities. Players also now need to complete six landmarks instead of four. Finally, with more establishments in the game, players choose only ten for use in any single game, mixing up what’s available each time you bring it to the table.
Machi Koro: Harbor Expansion includes cards that allow for up to five players to compete at the same time (82 cards total), while Machi Koro Plus includes only the new types of cards (68 cards).

 

DIAMONSTERS

DIAMONSTERS
From the designer and artist of the best-selling Machi Koro card game, Diamonsters is a fast-paced monster collecting card game! In Diamonsters, each player begins with the same hand, and the first player to collect three monsters of the same type or five diamonds wins. But it’s not so simple, some monsters are more valuable than others, and some will eat the diamonds you fought so hard for! If you and your friends love Machi Koro, you’ll go into a frenzy for Diamonsters!

 

DNDAWWAVE3

DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ATTACK WING: WAVE 3
D&D Attack Wing is a Dungeons & Dragons tactical flight and ground combat miniatures game, featuring pre-painted dragons, siege weaponry, and troops from the Dungeons & Dragons Forgotten Realms universe.
Utilizing the FlightPath maneuver system, command your army in epic aerial and ground combat & customize your army with spells, equipment, weapons, special abilities and more!
The third wave includes The Harpy, Wyvern and Silver Dragon.

A recent email I received reads as follows:

Hi,

I unfortunately work at the Twistee Treat on St. Pete Beach and one of the many sundry tasks I am burdened with as part of my employment is to climb up into the top of the ice cream cone shaped building to retrieve the styrofoam cups and plastic lids which are stored up there.

Anywho, while I was crawling around up there during last Thursday’s supply run I came across an obviously old, unmarked box that I had somehow failed to notice before. My first reaction was to ignore the strange box but later on my curiousity got the better of me and after my shift was over I climbed back up into the soft serve part of the cone and opened the box.
Inside were several objects, some of which being rather bizarre and disturbing and I won’t trouble you by listing them here.

Besides said peculiar items there were some old comics which I was quite intrigued by. I asked my boss about the box and he said that he had absolutely no idea what box I was talking about and that I was more than welcome to anything I found inside it.

So, I was wondering if you would be interested in purchasing any of these old comics I found in the very creepy box.

Thanks,

(name withheld to protect the anonymity of the guest).

This is a real email I received and these are the some of the real comics that Anonymous had in his/her newly found collection. Some of the comics were … off-putting to say the least, but a few of them we were able to offer Anonymous a few bucks for; these are listed below.

Avengers #55, Intro. Ultron, Very Good (4.0) $55
Avengers  #196, Intro. Taskmaster, Fine (6.0) $25
Infinity Gauntlet #’s 1-6, $125

ironman

MARVEL COMICS AVENGERS NOW IRON MAN ARTFX+ STATUE
KOTO INC.
From Kotobukiya. Marvel Comics is the next great property to get Kotobukiya’s ARTFX+ statue treatment, and so of course the first series is none other than the Avengers, specifically the characters as they appear in Marvel Now!  In 2012 the comic book company relaunched several titles, shifting some characters into different books and updating some for a modern audience.  More than anything, it provided a perfect jumping on point for new readers.  Now the characters are brought to life as never before based on concept artwork by superstar artist Adi Granov.  The latest Avenger to join the team is IRON MAN, who completes the lineup of Earth’s defenders with his previously released allies Hulk, Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye, and Thor!
Created in 1963 by a group of comic book luminaries (including Stan Lee and Jack Kirby), Tony Stark was a rich playboy whose capture during the Cold War led him to create a technologically advanced powered armor suit bristling with weapons and science-fiction gadgets.  Best known for fighting enemies such as Mandarin and Crimson Dynamo, Stark would over the years combat his own personal demons as well, making him a very nuanced and interesting character popular the world over.  While he would continue to improve and upgrade his armors, the brilliant industrialist/hero would also help found the premiere Marvel superhero group the Avengers and fight with them all the way into the current Marvel Now! Universe.  With a fresh start Tony appeared there with a brand new suit of Iron Man armor featuring a sleek design and a bold black and gold color scheme!  The Iron Avenger stands at the ready, turned to his side as he raises his right hand to aim a repulsor at the enemy.  Iron Man’s armor is intricately detailed with layers, panels, vents, and other technological components like secondary repulsors, and the metallic paint really makes it shine.
Sculpted by the same master artist who did the rest of this Avengers series, Junnosuke Abe (RESTORE), Iron Man stands just under 8 ½ inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale) on his included magnetic display base.  Add Iron Man to your collection and complete the full lineup of ARTFX+ Marvel Now Avengers!

BATMAN ARTFX STATUE BLACK COSTUME VER
KOTO INC.
A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! A classic returns!  One of the original and most popular DC Comics ARTFX Statues is back in a new version to thrill fans all over again.  The comic book Dark Knight returns; where once he was the blue-suited Jim Lee Hush version, Bruce Wayne is now BATMAN BLACK COSTUME VER.!  Inspired by the magnificent art of Lee in the seminal 2002 storyline pitting Batman against some of his most diabolical enemies, the original ARTFX Statue captured the Caped Crusader as he appeared then.  It’s only fitting that with Jim Lee drawing Batman in the current DC 52 Justice League that the classic Batman return in a tremendous all-new color scheme with some minor adjustments to the sculpt.  Batman is forever, and ready to fight crime on your shelves!
With his battle-tattered cape swirling dynamically around him, Batman strikes an intimidating pose designed to strike fear into the hearts of the evil doers of Gotham City.  Leaping into the fray against Joker or Two-Face, Bruce prepares a wide-legged stance for optimal balance while holding back his cape with one arm and keeping the other free to punch or pull a needed item from his utility belt!  The highly detailed sculpt and paint shadowing reveal the billionaire playboy’s muscular physique, trained to the peak of human perfection and highlighted by the skin-tight Batman outfit.  The detail on the Dark Knight is just as good as it was on the original version, with expert touches including the belt, swirling cape, and of course the stern head sculpt.  Meanwhile, the new black and gray costume colors lend a darker, grittier look to Batman that makes him blend in even better with the night.
Sculpted by Kouei Matsumoto, Batman Black Costume Ver. stands 11 inches tall (1/6th scale) on a special display base.  While he looks great on his own, Batman also makes a perfect companion piece to the previously offered Dark Knight, Catwoman, and Joker!

 

WONDERWOMAN

DC COMICS WONDER WOMAN ARTFX STATUE
KOTO INC.
From Kotobukiya. Following the recent releases of classic DC Comics characters in the full size ARTFX Statue scale (including Batman Black Costume, The Joker, and Superman), Kotobukiya heads to Themyscira for a new presentation of the female member of DC’s “Trinity,” WONDER WOMAN!  Since her comic book debut in 1941, Princess Diana has been an icon of female power, intelligence, and grace.  Arriving in “man’s world” from the island home of Themyscira, Diana donned a red, white and blue costume to protect the world as Wonder Woman!  The Amazon warrior has never looked more regal and powerful than in this new look as envisioned by superstar artist Jim Lee.
Confident and purposeful, Wonder Woman strides forward to confront whatever may come with dignity and determination.  Diana wears her iconic outfit featuring the red and gold bodice with eagle motif, gold belt, blue skirt with white stars, and tall red and white boots.  Meanwhile, no version of Wonder Woman would be complete without her star-studded tiara, bracelets, and Lasso of Truth at her waist, and this version even adds a huge red cape that flows behind her!  Frozen in mid-step, the superhero holds onto her cape at her sides, keeping it from getting in her way, and stares intently with her head cocked ever so slightly.  Her poise and strength contrast nicely with the subtle movement of her skirt, cape, and waving hair which all combine to give Wonder Woman a larger than life presence!
Standing just under 12 inches tall (in the ARTFX 1/6 scale) atop a special base featuring her logo, Wonder Woman looks fantastic in any collection; she’s also the final piece in an unofficial Trinity series with the Superman For Tomorrow and Batman Black Costume ARTFX statues, all of which were sculpted by the inimitable Kouei Matsumoto!

DARWYN COOKE DELIVERS A PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER AND DARK COMEDY IN REVENGEANCE

REVENGEANCE

 

The bestselling artist’s first creator-owned project!

Image Comics is pleased to announce that cartoonist Darwyn Cooke (Parker, DC: The New Frontier) will launch REVENGEANCE, his first fully creator-owned project, from Image Comics in June 2015.

REVENGEANCE is a psychological thriller with darkly humorous overtones. When Joe Malarky is faced with a criminal tragedy, he sets out to make things right on his own. What follows is Joe’s odyssey through the underside of the city and the madness that seems to drive his crazy world.

REVENGEANCE takes place in Toronto in the mid-eighties and is part crime story, part psychotronic melodrama, and a wholly fond look back at the author’s hometown.

“Darwyn Cooke is a living legend and there’s little I can say in favor of his amazing body of work that hasn’t been said before, but it’s a true honor to have him doing Revengeance at Image,” said Eric Stephenson, Publisher at Image Comics. “Like everyone else in comics, I’ve been such a huge fan of Darwyn’s work for so long that finally publishing something by him—not to mention something this cool—seems almost like a dream. Just knowing we’re putting this out is an early highlight for what is already looking like an amazing year.”

The series is set to launch from Image Comics in June 2015.

home-alone-on-a-spooky-windswept-night-while-an-owl-screeches-and-chills-your-bones sort of read…so, y’know…if you enjoy that whole vibe then come buy it from us for $75 and freak yourself out.

I can’t believe I’m saying this but I still have these Thanos Quest issues up on the wall. Seriously guys, Thanos is a  freakin’ movie star! Everybody loves his ugly purple face! He’s got a bejeweled glove like Michael-friggin’-Jackson! He’s way better than Michael Jackson!! Twelve and a half times better!! Buy these books for $80 before I buy ‘em and chump all of you out!! CHUMP YOU OUT BIG TIME!!

Okay, I’m all right. Let’s just calm down and talk about issues 198 and 199 of the old World’s Finest series. What’s so special about World’s Finest #’s 198 and 199, you ask? Well, not only are they the world’s finest comics as the title indicates but these issues also tell the tale of the third time that Superman and The Flash had a race. Y’see, every once and again Superman and The Flash have a race to see who’s the fastest and they usually end up saving the universe in the process, as superheroes are wont to do. Sometimes Superman wins and sometimes the ol’ Scarlet Speedster takes the checkered flag. “Who wins this particular time” you may well ask? Well homie, it’ll cost ya’ $50 to buy a ticket to this here track meet.

Alright, that’s all the comics I’m telling you about this week. Happy trails kiddies!

MURANO
MURANO
Reknown for its tourism and glassmaking, Murano is a series of small islands in northern Italy separated by canals and linked by bridges, where gondolas and transportation are at the heart of the commerce. In Murano, players guide and propel their gondolas to the most lucrative regions, setting up shops and crafting glassworks to sell to tourists in their quest for prestige and profits.

 

PATCHWORK
PATCHWORK
From Uwe Rosenberg (Caverna) comes Patchwork, a two-player game where players compete to craft the most ornate patchwork quilt while also achieving the highest score. Beginning with a 9×9 game board, players use patches, some of which include buttons which earn victory points, to embroider their quilt.

 

kobayakawa
KOBAYAKAWA
Kobayakawa is a game of bluffing and deduction, and the player that ends up with the highest numbered card wins the round. In this stylish new game from Jun Sasaki, components are kept at a minimum – there are only 15 cards and a handful of crest tokens.

Players each start with a random card in hand, and the rest is put in a pile at the center of the table with the first card flipped face up (this card is called the Kobayakawa).

The rules are simple: Each round, players take a turn and either discard their card face up in front of them and take a new one from the deck, or turn a card from the deck to replace the current Kobayakawa. After each player has taken a turn, they each decide if they want to compete for this round by putting a crest token on their card. Players that decided to compete then all reveal their card at once and compare their number.

The player with the highest number wins, but the player that has the smallest numbered card also adds the number of the current Kobayakawa on top of it.

 

Designers-Dragons-Cover70sDesigners-Dragons-Cover00s
DESIGNERS & DRAGONS : 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, 00’s
If there’s one thing that the “old school” revolution has taught us, it’s that history is important to us as gamers. Our roots matter. But how much do we actually know — or remember — of the origins of this hobby of ours?

Enter Designers & Dragons. In this four-volume, decade-by-decade series from Evil Hat, author and game historian Shannon Appelcline will dig deep into the lore of our forty-year-old hobby, uncovering the forgotten facts and hidden stories behind the biggest and most influential names in roleplaying games.

Whether you’re new to RPGs and wonder where they came from, a “grognard” of the most ancient order looking to dust off some treasured nostalgia, or a tried-and-true gamer looking to explore the field of what is and what was, you’ll find something in Designers & Dragons for you!

Back Issues / Vintage Comics
—————————————-

Well, well, here we find ourselves, dear reader, at the beginning of twenty-fifteen. How exciting! By way of ringing in the New Year, here are some brand new old comics to spend your remaining Christmas cash on.

Our recent influx of choice Walking Dead back issues has provided us with a copy of issue number 27 of the graphic saga that almost makes one wish that they were living in a world where the dead rise to gorge themselves on the flesh of the living. For those of you not in the know issue number 27 is the first appearance of The Governor. If you’re anything like me you were sorely disappointed to learn that The Governor was not Arnold Scwharzenegger but instead a nasty little fellow with an eyepatch and a Hettfield mustache. Be that as it may Walking Dead #27 is still a good comic to own a copy of and you can have our Near Mint- (9.2) copy for the minimal layout of $145.

Werewolf By Night is a Marvel Comics character who is, as you may have surmised, a lycanthrope by night and a understandably high strung dude by day. In issue number 32 of his series the Werewolf By Night ran afoul of a chap dressed all in white who called himself the Moon Knight. This issue is, in fact, the first time anybody ever ran afoul of the Moon Knight in the history of comicdom, for you see it is the very first ever appearance of the Moon Knight. You should probably hurry up and buy our Fine- (5.5) copy for $225 because Werewolf By Night #32 is a very highly sought after comic book, much moreso than any of the issues of Werewolf By Day which is held by popular opinion to be sadly inferior to any and all lycanthropic nocturnal exploits.

Whoa, dude! We’ve got ourselves a copy of Amazing Spider-Man #129 back in stock! What, you may ask, is so all-fired important about Amazing Spider-Man #129 as to warrant such an excited reaction? Seriously, dude/dudette? SERIOUSLY?! If you don’t know what is so “all-fired important” about Amazing Spider-Man #129 than, as Christoph Waltz said, “…we simply aren’t operating on the level of mutual respect that I assumed.”  PUNISHER!! HELLO! First appearance of the freakin’ PUNISHER!! D’OI!! If you already knew what was so “all-fired important” about ASM #129 then please disregard the last two sentences; if you did not then seriously…d’oi! It’s a Fine (6.0) copy for $450. Come get you some before somebody else gets ‘em some first.

If all of the triple digit prices on the above books seem a little steep for your post-holiday budget, no worries — ol’ Uncle Justin got merchandise priced to fit any pocketbook. How does issue #361 of Amazing Spider-Man, the first appearance of Carnage, in Very Fine+ (8.5) condition for $40 sound, oh frugal shopper? Did you know that Carnage was originally going to be a cheese themed villain called “Fromage”.  It’s true! He had a big tank of smelly Roquefort strapped to his back which he fired at his enemies with two wrist mounted hoses. Look it up!

Happy New Year! Have a sexy 2015!

SamuraiSpirit
SAMURAI SPIRIT
You and your fellow samurai companions are the only standing obstacle between one frightened village and a full horde of blood-thirsty villains. The fight seems unfair as the seven of you might not seem to measure up to the dozens of enemies who want to slice you to pieces — but this comparison doesn’t take into account your strong combat skills and an efficient team spirit that binds your samurai squad enough to face the threat. Above all else, when everything seems desperate and lost, your enemies will discover that inside each of you lies a true beast, a warrior spirit ready to unleash its full power!
Samurai Spirit is a co-operative game in which each player is a fierce samurai defending a village surrounded by a horde of bandits. The game plays out over three turns during which each player takes turns drawing bandit cards, then choosing whether they want to fight the bandit, defend the village, or let the bandit pass in order to help the other samurai.
The challenge of the game consists of balancing your choices: Should you fight each enemy to quickly reach your beast capacities, while also coming closer to the death and risking further loss by not defending the village sufficiently? Should you mainly defend or help the other samurai, taking the risk of remaining human too long and therefore weaker, when you know that weakness will be a major problem when facing the lieutenant and the villain bosses? Each enemy presents a tough choice to you, your team, and ultimately the whole village! Each turn ends with farms and fences being destroyed, and since those aren’t unlimited, you must do what’s necessary to end the game with at least one undamaged farm and enough farmers to tend it. Do you have what it takes to stand against evil and become a true hero?
Fight with courage, smartly assist your teammates, defend the poor villagers, turn into a savage beast, and wreak havoc on the enemy lines — all of this is up to you! Ultimately it would be your honor to chose to die in a ultimate sacrifice in order to save the village. All of this is what makes the true samurai spirit!

StarWarsImperialAssault
STAR WARS: IMPERIAL ASSAULT
Star Wars: Imperial Assault is a strategy board game of tactical combat and missions for two to five players, offering two distinct games of battle and adventure in the Star Wars universe!
Imperial Assault puts you in the midst of the Galactic Civil War between the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire after the destruction of the Death Star over Yavin 4. In this game, you and your friends can participate in two separate games. The campaign game pits the limitless troops and resources of the Galactic Empire against a crack team of elite Rebel operatives as they strive to break the Empire’s hold on the galaxy, while the skirmish game invites you and a friend to muster strike teams and battle head-to-head over conflicting objectives.
In the campaign game, Imperial Assault invites you to play through a cinematic tale set in the Star Wars universe. One player commands the seemingly limitless armies of the Galactic Empire, threatening to extinguish the flame of the Rebellion forever. Up to four other players become heroes of the Rebel Alliance, engaging in covert operations to undermine the Empire’s schemes. Over the course of the campaign, both the Imperial player and the Rebel heroes gain new experience and skills, allowing characters to evolve as the story unfolds.
Imperial Assault offers a different game experience in the skirmish game. In skirmish missions, you and a friend compete in head-to-head, tactical combat. You’ll gather your own strike force of Imperials, Rebels, and Mercenaries and build a deck of command cards to gain an unexpected advantage in the heat of battle. Whether you recover lost holocrons or battle to defeat a raiding party, you’ll find danger and tactical choices in every skirmish.
As an additional benefit, the Luke Skywalker Ally Pack and the Darth Vader Villain Pack are included within the Imperial Assault Core Set. These figure packs offer sculpted plastic figures alongside additional campaign and skirmish missions that highlight both Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader within Imperial Assault. With these Imperial Assault Figure Packs, you’ll find even more missions that allow your heroes to fight alongside these iconic characters from the Star Wars saga.

SmallWorldRoyalBonus
SMALL WORLD: ROYAL BONUS
Small World: Royal Bonus is a mini-expansion for Small World that contains three Races (Fauns, Igors and Shrubmen) and three Special Powers (Aquatic, Behemoth and Fireball). Royal Bonus was first released only to Kickstarter backers of the digital version of Small World.

RESISTHIDDEN
THE RESISTANCE: HIDDEN AGENDA
Hidden Agenda is an expansion to The Resistance that consists of three different modules:
Assassin Module: Ever since we announced The Resistance: Avalon the request has been to take the exciting new roles from Avalon and make them available for The Resistance. We are very excited to now make that available – the Assassin module of Hidden Agenda contains all the Avalon roles, rethemed and renamed to fit into The Resistance Universe.
Defector Module: Two variants in one, the Defectors were included as part of the Avalon promos. In one variant, the Defectors can switch allegiance during the game – ensuring that players are never quite certain who to trust. In the second variant version the two Defectors know each other – ensuring that the accusations of deceit begin from the very opening of the game.
Trapper Module: Every proposed Mission Team includes an extra person that won’t go on the mission. The leader will isolate a team member and watch their every move – making sure they can’t make the mission fail. If you are a spy on the Mission Team, you’ll never know if you will cause a mission to fail or simply be giving your identity away. But resistance members will have to approve some missions knowing that a spy is on them and trust that the leader chooses to isolate the spy.

RESISTHOSTILE
THE RESISTANCE: HOSTILE INTENT
Hostile Intent is an expansion to The Resistance consisting of three modules.
Hunter Module: The battle between resistance and imperial has become more intense. It is no longer enough to target facilities in missions – the target has become personal as both sides look to neutralize their opponent’s leaders. In this module both the resistance and spies must identify a specific individual among the opposing team to win. Hunters introduces many new game concepts that bring a whole new level of deduction and deceit into The Resistance.
Reverser Module: Reversers have the ability to change the results of any mission – in the hands of the resistance this can make a doomed mission succeed, or turn certain victory into defeat. A very interesting and potentially chaotic twist that is certain to change your meta game forever.
Inquisitor Module: The Inquisitor is an optional player ability first seen in Avalon. The player with the Inquisitor will be able to look at the affiliation of another player and is a simple way to ensure every game is full of interest twists and turns as the Inquisitor uncovers the truth (at least their version of the truth).

Back Issues / Vintage Comics
—————————————-

Wha-huh?! YOU again?! Okay, so what are we talking about here? COMICS?! Is that what you’re telling me? You want some comics? Psshhh…okay…I guess.

This weeks edition of the Emerald City Comics Newsletter back issues section is entitled:

“These Comics Cost Thirty Dollars…EACH…Not Thirty Dollars For All FOUR Of Them! What’re You CRAZY?! Thirty Dollars For All FOUR! NO WAY!!”

(Note to editor: Do not condense length of title. Excessive length and poor grammar are integral to overall effect of the title, said effect being to overwhelm as well as entice the reader.)

First off we have Uncanny X-Men #221 in Very Fine (8.0) condition for $30 (see title above). What’s so Uncanny about these X-men? Well they’re mutants born into a world which hates and fears them … nothing canny about that.
The Oxford English Dictionary defines uncanny as: “Strange or mysterious, especially in an unsettling way.” Personally I find the X-Men deeply unsettling, especially Professor X’s eyebrows.
This particular issue of the Unsettling X-Men is the first appearance of Mr. Sinister. What’s so sinister about him? Well he’s English and he also wears what has to be the ugliest costume in supervillain history — I’m sorry but it just is.

Next we have X-factor #24 in Very Fine (8.0) condition for … $30 (see title above).
This one here is the first appearance of Archangel, whose name is a bit misleading being that he is not an actual angel nor is he particularly arch. He’s a mutant, one of the original Unsettling X-Men tortured and mutilated by the fiendish Apocalypse, given a pair of crazy metal wings that shoot razor sharp feathers and also outfitted with what has to be one of the ugliest costumes in superhero history — I’m sorry but it just is.
The Oxford English Dictionary has two definitions for arch:
1. “A curved symmetrical structure spanning an opening and typically supporting the weight of a bridge, roof, or wall above it.”
2. “Deliberately or affectedly playful and teasing.”
Neither seems to apply if you ask me, but I digress.

Third on our list is Incredible Hulk #340 in Very Fine/Fine (7.0) condition for … well, $30 (see title above). This is the one where the grey skinned, slightly-smarter-yet-not-quite-as-strong-as-the-green-Hulk Hulk engages a chap called the Wolverine in a gentlemanly contest of strength and cunning. I hope I’m not giving too much away here but the Hulk gets stabbed in his belly. No big deal though, he’s the Hulk, he can take it. The Oxford English Dictionary defines hulk as: “An old ship stripped of fittings and permanently moored, especially for use as storage or (formerly) as a prison.” Neat.

Lastly we have the old 1970’s Joker #1 in Very Fine- (7.5) condition for … you guessed it, $30 (see title above). The Joker used to drive around in a car with his own face on the front end — nothing funny about that, it’s just narcissistic. The Oxford English Dictionary defines Batman as: “(In the British armed forces) an officer’s personal servant.” Again, just neat!
