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.
Boom Studio’s newest imprint, Boom Box!, has had an amazing first year with their hit Lumberjanes (the Adventure-Time-but-about-girls-at-summer-camp-amazing-hilarious-sell-out-comic) and they’re about to double down on their success with a new ongoing Munchkin comic. Each first print of each issue will come with an exclusive Munchkin card, all the better to assert your Munchkin dominance with.
The first issue will be out on January 28th, but you can catch the first print appearance of Munchkin, by game artist John Kovalic himself in the first ever Boom Box 2014 Mix Tape, a collection of shorts by Boom Box artists and friends about their stable of new characters including Lumberjanes, Teen Dog and his nemesis Thug Pug, Cyanide and Happiness, The Midas Flesh, Punk Rock Grandma and more.
Let us know now if you’d like The new ongoing Munchkin series added to your subscription list – we expect them to be scooped up like the precious booty they are from the moment they arrive.

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!
See you there!
