SDCC 2014 ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ Red Band Trailer Released! At San Diego Comic-Con 2014, attendees caught a glimpse of the new Sin City: A Dame to Kill For red band trailer.  Thanks to the folks at Machinima, the trailer is now available for your viewing pleasure.  The film is scheduled to release on August 22, 2014.
‘The EC Archives: Two-Fisted Tales Volume 3’ - Advance Hardcover Review With titles like “Bunker!,” “Atom Bomb!,” “Lost Battalion!,” and “Memphis!,” Two-Fisted Tales Volume 3 contains enough bullets, bombs, and exclamation points to win the war on boredom. In these and other collected stories, beefy heroes smash desperate circumstances square in the face, without the slightest regard for personal safety, while desperate wives and mothers sit at home, eager to receive what could only have been poorly written letters from abroad.  
‘Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Numeria, Land of Fallen Stars’ - RPG Supplement Review (My Kingdom for a Laser Pistol) The seventh word on the back of this supplement is “spaceship.”

Totally not joking. This is a Pathfinder product for the regular, old fantasy world of Golarion, and there are spaceships.

Yes, spaceships.
‘Onna-bugeisha:’ Comic Book Review I don’t know why, but I find myself immersed in samurais lately.  They’re everywhere!  Between Black Dynamite, 7th Sword, and even TMNT, everything is about katanas and honor.  Now, for those of you who have read my reviews, you’d know that in any samurai tale, I’d be a bad guy.  Here’s this bad guy’s view of the latest samurai tale I’ve read, Onna-bugeisha (by Frank Candiloro).
