Lady Killer

“Psycho Killer

Qu’est-ce que c’est

fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far better

Run run run run run run run away”

Dark Horse Comics is facing a possible dark future. One of the company’s biggest chunk of titles where part of the Star Wars license and that ran out late last year. Many wondered what Dark Horse was going to do to take up the slack. Part of the plan seems to be to push other great licenses. Last years Fire and Stone series takes the Aliens, Predator, Prometheus stories to interesting new places. Dark Horse also has some beloved old titles like Hellboy and B.P.R.D. that are still going strong. And they have some bold attempts at new titles. A perfect example of that is Lady Killer.

Sold as “Betty Draper meets Hannibal” Lady Killer is an engaging book that has both strong writing and interesting art. Joëlle Jones and Jamie S. Rich have collaborated before on such books as 12 Reasons Why I Love Her, and You Have Killed Me and both seem to have found a comfortable feel working with each other. Check out this interview by Tyler Chin-Tanner for Broken Frontier.

http://www.brokenfrontier.com/lady-killer-interview-joelle-jones-jamie-s-rich-dark-horse-comics/

I was swept up in the action from the first pages of the first issue. Jones does a great job of making the action interesting and dynamic without becoming hard to decipher. We start to learn of the main character Josie Schuller’s complicated double life as a Wife and Mother as well as a Contract Killer set in the Mad Menesque late 50′s suburbia. Her kids are cute. Her husband is loyal. Her job sees her killing house fraus with household appliances and staking out big shots in cocktail lounges all while keeping her family unaware.

Here is an in depth review of the first issue by Andy Khouri on Comics Alliance.

http://comicsalliance.com/lady-killer-joelle-jones-dark-horse-comic-con/

The first issue of Lady Killer has sold out for us here at Source but second printings arrive February 18th. The second issue arrives February 4th.

Welcome! Players Needed!
Greetings and Salutations Space Ranger!
The first Saturday Night Space Opera game kicks off just after the New Year with our first event at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 3, 2015. We’ll meet every first Saturday of the month after that.
We’re looking for a few good adventurers, who:

  • Love space adventure games and media!
  • Want to play a regular scifi RPG!
  • Want to play in a gonzo, kitchen-sink, sandbox universe!
  • May have some experience with RPGs, but not necessary!
  • Are open to using a rules-light system (for this first shot, anyway)!

Our first game session will use the X-plorers rules system (learn more here) for a homebrew setting we like to call RAD ASTRA! It’s a pastiche of 70s scifi TV, movies, and comics. Don’t worry, you’ll love it!
So come join us for an evening of laser-blasting, saber-swinging, starship swooshing excitement. The fun begins at 6:00 p.m. sharp.
OH, and please, please RSVP using the Contact button up top so we can get an accurate head count. Thanks!

Hello Everyone!

So it’s January and it was raining here for a while on Saturday at Source Comics and Games. It was a great day for our Board Game Night. I learned two new games, Cleopatra and the Society of Architects and King of New York. Be sure to come on down next month.

Some great new series are starting this week. Vertigo has Effigy #1, a wierd crime drama. Dynamite Comics launches a series of Classic Charicters with King Flash Gordon #1 and King the Phantom #1, with art from Minnesota’s own and friend of the Source Brent Schoonover . Boom brings us Munchkin #1, these first printing copies of the comic all come with a special game card inside.

Bitch Planet #2 looks like a must read this week. I read issue #1 and was interseted in where this book might take us. Image Comics has been doing great job in helping us to promote some great new titles and Bitch Planet is one of them.

Thor #4 continues this week. Uncanney X-men #1 relaunches from Marvel. DC continues the Flash 75th Covers.

We are getting a few more copies of Star Wars #1 and it looks like they are first printing. They should be going fast yet again so if you would like a copy give us a call and we can put one aside for you.

Wolverine is still dead.

Stay Warm,

The Source Crew

M4 Schedual

2/9 A Very Berserkistan Civil War- The brothers from different mothers struggle for control of our favorite mythical Central Asian country! 28mm Early 20th Century warfare using Brigadier ’38 rules. Presented by Brent.

2/16 George Washington’s Birthday- In honor of the Father Of Our Country, we’ll enjoy a large 15mm AWI Wilderness Wars game. Details TBA.

2/23 1/72nd scale Napoleonic Volley & Bayonet action, hosted by Andy and Marcel.

3/2 Slaughterloo – 28 mm Napies in a fantasy setting and a double header-

March 6, 1917.  “Bloody April” actually began in March as British observation missions increased in preparation for the Arras offensive (“This time, for sure!” –Bullwinkle J.             Moose).   The action on the 6th was noteworthy in that it saw the downing of VonRichthofen – non other than the Red Baron himself – in a fight that pitted his Jasta 11 against        the  RFC’s 40 and 43 Squadrons.  Take to the skies above the trenches in a flammable, flimsy craft of stick and canvas in a game that requires as much flying skill/knowledge as D&D does of spell or swordplay, ie: none at all…beyond simple stuff like “you can’t fly backwards” and “hitting the ground is bad”.

3/9 15mm Boxer Rebellion Fields of Honor, the Battle of Peking. Presented by Brent.

M4 Double Header

In honor of Groundhog Day, M4 offered a re-run of one of our most successful scenarios, the 1758 Battle of Lake George. In stark contrast to the original event, where stalwart American Provincial troops held off the onslaught of the French and their Indian allies, the evening ended in disaster for General Johnson, as a coordinated flank maneuver by the Abenaki carried the American flank just as the French Grenadiers charged the breastworks. Provincial morale quickly collapsed, with 3 regiments breaking and 1 descending into headlong flight to the landings, just in time to be met by a force of Courier de Bois who had disembarked from their canoes. General Johnson’s only alternatives were to offer his sword in surrender to the hated French or face the tender mercies of the Abenaki! As an added bonus, Jim and Ray arranged for a small Fields of Glory game, featuring the Battle of Mortimer’s Cross. This War of the Roses clash took place on February 2, 1461! The battle was over quickly, as the Yorkists were routed, but the group got a nice look at some of the potential Fields of Glory offers. We hope to see more in the future!
