Stop me if you've heard this one...

There's a supervillain who may possibly be psychotic, has a pale white face with a giant red mouth, and enjoys terrorizing and killing the citizens of dark, crowded city for fun - at least until his rampage is put to a stop by the local superhero, who has a penchant for dropping in through skylights. Any of that sound familiar?

Well, it's not The Joker - it's Madder Red.

JUST ARRIVED - DC Deck Building Game

New this week - DC Deck Building Game.

After months of waiting, fans can pick up the highly-anticipated DC Comics Deck-Building Game in their local game stores today. From San Diego Comic-Con to PAX Prime, gaming fans flocked to Cryptozoic, the premier developer of original and licensed games including The Walking Dead Board Game and Locke & Key: The Game, to try out this hugely popular game. Cryptozoic developed the DC Comics Deck-Building Game under a licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Consumer Products in partnership with DC Entertainment.

Boasting art straight from the hit comics, the DC Comics Deck-Building Game offers exciting and engaging gameplay for both comics and gaming fans, allowing them to play as the marquee characters they know and love. DC Comics Super Heroes and Villains featured in the game include Superman™, Batman™, The Joker, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Darkseid, Lex Luthor and many more. The amazing card mechanics give new depth to fan-favorite characters, allowing them new equipment and super powers. Plus, hundreds of potential card combinations and deep deck-building strategies keep the game fresh and exciting for each and every play session.

Cryptozoic's DC Comics Deck-Building Game is easy to learn and quick to play, offering incredible fun for two to five players. Each player chooses a Super Hero and builds a deck around that Super Hero and his or her special powers. The cards available to add to each player's deck are ever-changing, so each game offers compelling decisions and on-the-fly planning. At the end of the game, the player with the most victory points— based on the cards that player has acquired during the game— is the winner!

Designed for two to five players (ages 15 and up), the DC Comics Deck-Building Game is now available for only $40.00

Get a look at the next iteration of the Steamroller Tournament format. Big changes are afoot: No more radial scenarios, smaller Killbox, among other things. At the end of the tournament you will have an opportunity to voice your praise or concerns about the format. It's like voting but it might actually change something.

Army List - 2, 35pt Armies. You will have to play each army at least once. FA:C models may not repeated between armies. You are also allowed a pool of 7 points of additional models, per list, that you may swap in at the beginning of a game if you wish.

Painting Requirements - Painted armies are encouraged but not required.

Match Timing - Standard Deathclock (42 minutes per player). Clock cannot be paused except by the Tournament Organizer and deployment is on the clock.

# of Rounds - Tournament rounds will continue until there is only 1 undefeated player. Most likely 3 or 4 rounds.

Control Point Scoring - Assassin Scoring (If there is no clear winner at the end of a tournament, use the total number of enemy army points destroyed during the tournament as the tiebreak condition (followed by Strength of Schedule and then Control Points, if needed). This method should also be used to determine awards based on army point destruction.)

11:55am - Initial pairings announced, play begins after turn order is determined.
1:15pm - Lunch break
1:45pm - 2nd round pairings announced.

Garth Ennis' "The Boys" gets small

You know how Scott loved the recently ended The Boys from Dynamite Entertainment? A lot of you loved it, too, judging by the numbers. But we're guessing this is probably not a spinoff Boys fans would be into:

That art is an homage to Tiny Titans #43 by Michael "Mic?" Magtanong for Comics Should Be Good's The Line It Is Drawn #118 at CBR. The theme this week was "l'il" versions of characters (along the lines of all those Scottie Young variant covers Marvel has been putting on their reboot books), so go check it out to see what else they came up with.

You can suggest future "Line It Is Drawn" themes if you follow CSBG on Twitter. And if you're on Twitter, remember that you can also follow us!

MARVEL NOW - Indestructible Hulk #1

I'll be honest, I've never been a huge fan of the Hulk. Especially recently, I've tried reading some Red Hulk and some Hulk by Marc Silvestri. I still could not get into it. However I worked Tuesday night and decided to give the Marvel Now title - INDESTRUCTIBLE HULK #1 a try.

I was pleasantly surprised. I like the direction they are taking and with guest appearances by Maria Hill and Agent Coulson (yeah you knew he wasn't really dead) I'm thinking about adding it to my monthly pull list.

So pop in, it's the perfect time to add it to your pull list.

Amazing Spider-man #698 (NO SPOILERS) !!

Wow. I just read Amazing Spider-man #698. What a twist !!
This issue will probably sell out by close of business Wednesday.
As always the line starts to the left of the front door and we open at 11AM sharp. You do not want to miss this issue.

Now would also be a good time to let us know if you want us to save a copy of #699, 699.1 and #700 for you.
