GENERATION ONE
DC COMICS
The path to DC’s future continues to unfold in Generation One: Age of Mysteries! On sale in May, Generation One: Age of Mysteries is the first of five oversized Prestige format one-shots, each detailing a different age in DC’s storied, super heroic legacy!
Generation One: Age of Mysteries follows DC’s Generation Zero: Gods Among Us, available on Free Comic Book Day 2020.
“The Generation series of specials are built to bring the new DC timeline to life,” said DC Comics. “With Generation One: Age of Mysteries and every subsequent volume we’ll be shining a spotlight on the 80-plus-year publishing history of the DC universe while charting the course for the bright future of DC’s characters. All of our greatest stories and events will create the backdrop and context for the great new adventures we have planned. Everything counts, and we guarantee there’ll be surprises along the way!”
Readers of Generation One: Age of Mysteries will witness firsthand major events from throughout the history of the DC universe as seen through the eyes of characters like Wonder Woman, Lucius Fox, Alfred Pennyworth, Green Lantern (Alan Scott), The Spectre (Jim Corrigan), Mister Terrific (Terry Sloane), and others. The series of one-shots will also expose secrets from DC’s history, such as:

  • What was the previously undocumented “big bang” of the Age of Mysteries?
  • Which character truly ushers in the dawn of Super Heroes, inspiring all the rest?
  • What was the real reason behind the Justice Society of America’s retirement?
  • Which Golden Age hero will become history’s greatest villain?
  • What contentious alliance kept the Wayne family dynasty alive after Thomas and Martha’s deaths?
  • Who are the new, never-seen-before wildcards that will be instrumental in fashioning DC’s push to the future?

These five books will have all the answers to these questions, setting up DC’s boldest storylines ever while laying the groundwork for more excitement to come. The five Generation issues will feature a who’s who of creative talent, with an overarching story by Brian Michael Bendis, Dan Jurgens, Andy Schmidt, Robert Venditti, and Joshua Williamson, illustrated by artists including Doug Mahnke, Bryan Hitch, Mikel Janín, Ivan Reis, David Marquez, and more.
Generation One: Age of Mysteries is scripted by Andy Schmidt, with lead art by Doug Mahnke. Each of DC’s Generation one-shots will feature a cover by Jim Cheung and a variant cover by Gary Frank. Generation Two: Age of the Metahuman, Generation Three: Age of Crisis, Generation Four: Age of Rebirth and Generation Five: Age of Tomorrow will follow monthly after Generation One: Age of Mysteries.
Generation One: Age of Mysteries is a 48-page, Prestige format one-shot on sale at EC on May 27, 2020!

ROGUE PLANET #1
Oni Press

Story by Cullen Bunn
Art by Andy MacDonald
$3.99 – only $2.99 during its first week of release!
 
Salvage vessel Cortes tracks the Lonely Orphan, a planet with no star system to call its own. Somewhere on this hostile rock is a payload fit for a king. To attain it, though, the crew of the Cortes must brave razor rock, poisonous vapors, treacherous footing, and… the most mind-numbing horrors imaginable. Something nightmarish is at work on Lonely Orphan. Something cruel. Something hungry.

Why It’s Cool:
“Rogue Planet is one of those books that feels like you’ve seen it before: a sci fi crew out scavenging the galaxy to make ends meet, waking up out of cryo-sleep to find a forbidding alien planet with a salvage beacon screaming for attention. You know everything’s going to go wrong for this crew, but exactly how wrong is the question. But then Rogue Planet ratchets up the horror past expectations to something much bigger than just some dangerous aliens on a dangerous planet to something grotesque, something cosmic, and you know everything’s going to get much, much worse than you were already expecting it to.“
-Edward Uvanni, Comics Omnivore Director

Adam Strange is the hero of Rann, a man famous throughout the galaxy for his bravery and honor. After leading his adopted home to victory in a great planetary war, Adam and his wife Alanna retire to Earth, where they are greeted by cheers, awards, and parades. But not all is as happy and nice as it seems, as the decisions Adam made during battles on Rann come back to haunt his family and threaten the entire DC Universe. And now a surprise DC hero will have to choose between saving Adam Strange and saving the world.
A story like no other, Strange Adventures is an ambitious, thrilling, shocking, and beautiful 12-issue saga that will push Adam Strange to the breaking point-and beyond!

NOVA LUNA

The new moon is a symbol for a new beginning, the perfect time to start something new and to plan your future — and that is what Nova Luna (lat. for new moon) is all about. In each round of this abstract tile-laying game, you have to plan your future anew, developing a new strategy to cope with what the moon wheel has to offer you.

On each turn, you have to decide which new tile from the moon wheel to place in front of you. Every new tile brings a new task you have to fulfill. In order to do so, you need to place tiles of the correct color adjacent to the task you want to complete, but these of course again bring you new tasks. Each time a task is solved, you may place one of your markers on it. So decide wisely and be the first one to place all your markers.

If you haven’t gone to the theater to see Harley Quinn: Birds Of Prey, do both yourself and I a favor and go buy a ticket once you’re finished reading this week’s post.

If you’d like to do the both of us (again, meaning you and I) another solid, check out the Harley Quinn Animated Series on the DC Universe streaming service.
It is delightful.

Hate to ask for yet another favor, but do remember that all of these favors that I’m asking you for are definitely in your best interest.

So here goes, favor number three: come on by the shop and buy some of these sweet Harley Quinn comics.

Heck, why not come on by and pick up all four of these Harley Quinn comics that I’m about to mention!

If you were to follow all of the recommendations that I’ve made above, you would be doing both yourself and I like six favors a piece or twelve favors in total!

That’s a LOT of favors! Major karma points for you for doing that many favors.

Toy Fair New Board Games!

New York Toy Fair was this past weekend, which brings not only a ton of cool toy announcements, but also new board games! Here is a couple of games that I, Adrian, am super excited for!

 

 

HOCUS POCUS

Players will work together to ruin the potions concocted by the legendary Sanderson sisters to save the lives of Salem’s children before the sun rises! Fans of the movie will recognize favorite spells, appearances by characters like Binx the cat and Billy Butcherson, and for an extra bonus, the game box is designed to look like none other than “Book.” The game includes plenty of other creepy details you love about the film, but the fantastical illustrations are tame enough for even your youngest gamers.

EXPECTED RELEASE: AUGUST 2020

 

 


MARVEL VILLANIOUS: INFINITE POWER

Marvel Villainous: Infinite Power is the newest game in the “Villainous” franchise. While Disney Villainous (and its many expansions) allow us to play as our favorite Disney villains, Marvel Villainous will allow 2-4 players to become popular Marvel villains, including Thanos, Hela, and Ultron.

In Marvel Villainous, each player will have their own goal to complete in order to win the game, but players can still interact by dealing “twists of fate” to the other villains.

EXPECTED RELEASE: AUGUST 2020

CLINIC: DELUXE EDITION

Your Town Center is flourishing, but as the city grows, the need for emergency medical care grows with it. Fortunately, you and your business partners have the wherewithal to build a clinic to help those in need of more than first aid. You quickly get a pre-admissions facility built to help process and route the different cases into the appropriate queues. Unfortunately, just before groundbreaking, your differing views of the ideal clinic cause a schism between you, and you go your separate ways, with patients already lining up in pre-admissions. Each of you decides to build the clinic of your dreams, trying to hire doctors, nurses, and maintenance staff, and build new modules, specialized services, and even parking, in order to meet the needs of the patients ailing in pre-admissions.

This is your Clinic! Build it however you like to give patients the care they need, so you can make your Clinic the most popular one in town!

 

 


HALL OF THE MOUNTAIN KING

Play as trolls rebuilding your abandoned kingdom under the mountain in In the Hall of the Mountain King. With muscle and magic, you’ll unearth riches, dig out collapsed tunnels, and carve out great halls as you raise the toppled statues of your ancestors to their places of honor at the heart of the mountain. Gameplay is driven by the innovative cascading production system. Timing and tactics are key as you work to restore your home to its former glory and win the crown!

Working on the same game board with the other players (but beginning at your own entrance), you’ll dig a competing network of tunnels by spending increasingly valuable materials to lay polyomino tiles onto the map. You want to extend your tunnels to connect with buried gold and materials, with workshop locations that can transform resources, and especially with toppled statues. Statues are key to scoring, and you’ll spend carts to move them through the tunnels to prime scoring locations near the heart of the mountain.

A major aspect of the game is the cascading production. You begin with a line of four trolls, and every troll shows the combination of resources — gold, stone, iron, marble, carts, runes, and hammers — that it produces. When a new troll is hired, place it above two other trolls, forming a “pyramid”. The new troll activates, gaining its resources, and any trolls beneath it ALSO activate, gaining any resources that they have room to carry. In this way as you hire more trolls, you gain bigger and bigger windfalls of resources as the end of the game nears. The timing of your hiring turns versus your building turns is important as you try to maximize your cascades while making sure you get the trolls you want from the shared market and also stay competitive on the map.

The game ends shortly after the last player hires their sixth troll, then the player with the most honor (earned for digging tunnels of increasing quality, for excavating great halls, and for moving statues closer to the heart of the mountain, especially onto matching pedestals) is crowned the Mountain King and wins!

“Justin’s Jabber” – Back Issue Comics! 2/14/20

Well I hope you folks weren’t expecting some sort of Valentine’s themed post from me today in honor of the holiday.

The reasons for this decision are variegated, but the primary factor would have to be a distinct lack of key issues featuring romantic imagery in our recently arrived inventory.

I’m sure that if I did a little research I could come up with four different key issues featuring some romantic artwork on the cover, but I’m just going to go with some cool non-Valentine’s related comics. Sound good?

Happy Valentine’s Day by the way!

VIDEO VORTEX

Video Vortex is a competitive deck-building game for 2-4 players set in a radioactive future Earth inhabited by video-obsessed mutants. Each genre-worshiping character must strategically employ their individual mutant powers while battling opponents and navigating game effects in an attempt to seize control of the wasteland.

On their respective turns, players will spend energy to play special cards, power their deck with rentals from the local video store, and eject chosen cards from play to weaken foes. Runtime, the measure of mutant health, is limited and unique to each character. By advancing an opponent’s runtime beyond their limit through Lo-Fi and Hi-Fi attacks, mutants collect “Be Kind” tokens as trophies representative of their conquest. Once three distinctive trophies have been collected, victory is declared by the reigning champion.

 

 


TRIAL BY TROLLEY

In Trial by Trolley, one player acts as the Trolley Operator and must choose where to send a murderous, out of control, trolley. Every other player at the table plays cards and argues in order to convince the operator to spare their lives and condemn everyone on the other track to a gruesome death-by-trolley.

Each round, one player will act as the trolley conductor. This person will be the judge, and will choose which track the trolley will murder.

Each other player is divided evenly among teams, and each player(s) will have a role for the round.

To begin, one player will draw 3 angelic tracks, choose one to play to the table, and then randomly reveal a 2nd angelic track from the deck to add to the track. Another player will draw 3 demonic tracks, and choose to add one to the opposing teams track, attempting to sabotage them, and spare their own tracks. Finally, player(s) will draw track modifiers to place on any track card on the table. They can play on their own tracks, to sway the judge, or they may play on their opponents, to further sway the judge into murdering their opponent’s track.

The judge will ponder this conundrum, and eventually decide to murder one track. The track that was spared is the winner for the round!

Play continues for a number of rounds pre-determined by the number of players at the table.
