OUR FRIENDS AT ATLAS GAMES HAVE A KICKSTARTER FOR THEIR UPCOMING GAME, COGS & COMMISSARS!
Atlas Games has launched the Kickstarter campaign for their exciting new card game, Cogs and Commissars. At last, backers can rise up and overthrow their organic oppressors!
Cogs and Commissars is a card game of glorious robot revolution where players control the means of production. Players enter a world of totalitarian robots and take that propaganda. All comrades wish to bring the glorious revolution, but each knows their faction’s philosophy is superior. The goal is to attract citizens to their faction more quickly than the others, then win the game by playing the Revolution card.

INCOGNEGRO RENAISSANCE #1
After a black writer is found dead at a scandalous interracial party in 1920s New York, Harlem’s cub reporter Zane Pinchback is the only one determined to solve the murder. Zane must go “incognegro” for the first time-using his light appearance to pass as a white man-to find the true killer, in this prequel miniseries to the critically acclaimed Vertigo graphic novel, now available in a special new 10th Anniversary Edition. With a cryptic manuscript as his only clue, and a mysterious and beautiful woman as the murder’s only witness, Zane finds himself on the hunt through the dark and dangerous streets of “roaring twenties” Harlem in search for justice. A page-turning thriller of racial divide, Incognegro: Renaissance explores segregation, secrets, and self-image as our race-bending protagonist penetrates a world where he feels stranger than ever before.

We see women all of the time around here, but they don’t always see each other. And so, join us for Shieldmaiden Sundays. We’re open 12-6 on Sundays and during that time, if you’re a lady nerd seeking to hang out with other lady nerds to chat comics and cosplay, play casual magic or table top games, or start an RPG campaign, this is your day.
Other events in the game room will proceed as normal, under our every day, general game room guidelines. Our intent is to provide the common time and space for women who have asked about how to find other female members of the community. In the event of a special, large event that occupies the game room for the day it will be on the store calendar and anyone on our staff will be happy to help you reserve space on another night if you wish.
Welcome back to Tim’s corner.
Hello from Tim’s corner.
You know what?Star Wars is cool. I have loved the movies since I was a kid, and still love them today. I love the fact that the comic world has embraced it as well. Apparently so do a lot of you, since we have sold a bunch of Star Wars comics lately. So I have to put a bunch more out. These include the Star Wars mini series – Blood Ties, Clone Wars, Droids, and the Infinities series. Plus the run of Star Wars Empire, with more coming soon. Along with the Star Wars titles, I have put out some Elfquest (Marvel), Elfquest Wave Dancers, Nam, and Deadpool Dracula’s Gauntlet, and Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars. May the Force be with You.
