Captions So Far


-Michael


-Rob

“Did I ever tell you guys about my 20th level paladin/thief. His name is Karnak Stompevil and he’s totally awesome! He’s got a magical flying warhorse named Thunder that was a gift from the elves, a holy avenger named Throatcutter from an adventurer my brother ran, and his full plate armor which lets him totally use his thief abilties without penalties. We should totally play Dungeons and Dragons together while we’re here! I can DM, totally. I brought my dice, and I don’t need any books, since I have them memorized. Don’t worry, I’ll have Karnak come along with you guys so you don’t get killed. We can get some Mountain Dew and cheetos, and go up to my room to play. It’ll be AWESOME!”
- Jason

"I hate it went then roll on a random encounter table to determine what they serve."
or
"and then I told Scott to sort 100,000 magic cards! Hillarious!"
or
"I've managed to create a crude six sider with my biscuit and corn."
or
"Have you guys been reading the Keystone Gamer Society Blog? It's great! Why, just the other day..."
or
"So, guys... who do you think is hotter, Picard or Kirk?"
- Scott (member of the Keystone Gaming Society)


Now... Which spoon do I eat the salad with again?

Lady Mechanika #0



I don't do comic book reviews on this site as much as I should but I had to post my review of the new comic - Lady Mechanika by publisher Aspen Comics. It's a creator-owned comic by Joe Benitez (the only artist, in my opinion, who draws women better than Frank Cho and J Scott Campbell).

The art work is top notch giving a steam punk feel to what is a good introduction to this character. Issue #1 hits stores in December so make sure you add this title to your pull list.

Lady Mechanika is even on facebook. Check out her page here.

CSW now on FourSquare




Comic Store West is now on FourSquare.

What is FourSquare?
Foursquare is primarily for letting your friends know where you are and figuring out where they are. Secondarily, it's for collecting points, prize "badges," and eventually, coupons, for going about your everyday business.

Read more here.

One more way we hope to dominate the internet in 2010 (even though Prince said the internet is over).
