  1. Our third episode, "The History of DC Comics Part I" drops tomorrow! This one goes pretty in-depth - the first episode ENDS with the release of Action #1, so there's plenty of story before we even get to that. dw
  2. Hey gang! Our second episode, "The Captains Marvel" just dropped. Please check it out, especially if you're a fan of publishers suing each other! dw
  3. Hey all! Long time no see! Just wanted to drop in and let people know that my new comic book history podcast, Explain This, Comics Guys!! began last week with its very first episode, about the history of the Comics Code Authority and the Code itself. New episodes will drop every other week - we've got six in the can already so we have some margin in case of illness, travel or whatever. You can check it out here: https://explainthis.podbean.com/ Thanks! dw
  4. Posting here one more time, as I promise not to spend too much time promoting other systems. But if you've enjoyed my work on Hero products before, I'd greatly appreciate you checking out this Kickstarter, which drops tomorrow (!!!) Thanks! dw
  5. Here's the link to the information page: http://explorersofthefantastic.com/explorers.html
  6. No plans for a Hero version now, but if this takes off, who knows? And sure - heel turns happen. dw
  7. Hey all! Just wanted to let Herodom Assembled that I'm doing a new Kickstarter! It starts October 29th, and here's the basic pitch: Explorers Of The Fantastic is a setting book for the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition, describing an alternate "atomic horror" Cold War of the 1950s and 1960s, where the third bomb the Allies dropped on Japan awoke giant monsters across the world. The Explorers are an organization of "action scientists" wearing matching color-coded jumpsuits and using astonishing technology to capture, contain or kill the kaiju before the Communists can get their hands on them. The amazing advances in science we've made from studying the creatures have given us technological breakthroughs, from ray guns to flying subs and soon interstellar travel! As long as we can survive the monsters, alien invaders and mad scientists, of course! Are you ready for the Fantastic?!? By Jess Nevins, Darren Watts and Jonathan Thompson, from Battlefield Press.
  8. Re: Voytek, the Nazi-fighting, ammo-carrying, alcoholic bear My GA players just met him a couple of weeks ago at Monte Cassino. dw
  9. Re: Assuage my fears about the complexity Nobody who uses the word "assuage" in a sentence correctly will find Hero too complex to play.
  10. Re: Storn's Art & Characters thread. The piece is actually of my GA playtest group. Clockwise from the top, it's Guardian Angel, Raven, Tarot, Justice, Crimson Palm and Doc Rocket. (And no, I didn't commission it, though I think it's awesome- one of the players did.) A great band of heroes, if I say so myself. dw
  11. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... Pheemy (on an illustrated Bible from 1953): I'm not sure I'm comfortable with a blond Jesus. Jason: Hey, Jesus wasn't even Jewish until the '70s. Rod: Yeah, him and Sammy Davis Jr. dw
  12. Okay, everybody, this is the last day in the office for most of us before leaving for Dundracon (which officially starts Friday, I know, but we have our Official Corporate Meeting the day before to satisfy the gummint and get our stories straight for the schedule announcements, not to mention the Really Big Stuff we'll be talking about Sunday and Monday.) As usual, that means shipping will be held up temporarily with Jason and Tina out of the warehouse, and while Steve and I will have sporadic internet access we also won't be around to answer questions quite so briskly. So, Snap the Wonder Dog is in charge and everybody be good until we're back sometime next Tuesday. Hope to see as many of you all at the show as possible, and don't forget to tune in this weekend to get the Big News if you can't be there in person! dw
  13. Re: Hero's List That's the most ludicrously one-sided list I've ever seen, and factually wrong at least a dozen times. Comic book portrayals of minorities in general certainly have a lot to answer for historically, but wild claims like this don't help the cause. dw
  14. Re: Hudson City Sightings Well, they're also at retailers in SF is what I meant. Since they shipped from Berkeley, that's not a surprise. Let us know when they show up in your neck of the woods... dw
