« Last post by whiteout on October 14, 2018, 09:44:11 PM »
If you've ever been curious about Guild Ball, or getting into a skirmish game where only 6 models is necessary, well now is the time. Season 4 was just launched. Lance from Muse on Minis and I discuss Season 4 in detail in our latest episode of The Pitch https://midwestwargaming.podbean.com/e/episode-21-season-4-were-not-exclusive-but-we-are-explicit/

Anything by Brian K Vaughn is likely worth your time.  Saga and Y the Last Man are both great and Paper Girls is finally starting to pay off.

As far as super hero comics go, they can be a lot of fun but it takes a bit to really understand how to parse them for quality.  For example, while ever stupid detail mentioned about the Dark Knights: Metal characters is true, its 100% irrelevant to the actual comic and regulated solely to some garbage tie ins that aren't really part of the plot.  The main story is rather well written and a lot of fun, but the Dark Knights themselves mostly just appear to provide an overwhelming adversary for the League while the actual plot happens.  Barry strapped to the hood of the Batmobile is not an actual plot point in Metal itself.

Basically, the important thing is to follow creators and authors over characters.  Scott Snyder, Jonathan Hickman, Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, etc.  It doesn't matter what character they're writing, it matters that they're the one writing it.  Most really dumb moments in comic history are the result of either a poor replacement writing trying to make a name for himself or editorial mandates.  In any case, finding an author you like and sticking with them tends to work out better than trying to follow a single character's book regardless of the creator.

Re MoM 348 Comic Discussion.

Didn’t really enjoy ‘East v West’.

To my mind the best comics of the last few Years have been ‘Planetary’ and ‘Jupiter’s Legacy'.

I didn’t really enjoy or understand Planetary the first time I read it, but i’ve re read it several times and its one of the greatest comics ever written imo.  You need to be a comic fan to fully appreciate it which is its only downside.

Jupiter’s Legacy is just a perfectly constructed story. Everything about it is wonderful, the characters, the pacing, the message.  Just Great.

And for older comics you can’t go wrong with Alan Moore’s Swing Thing run.    Very high level story telling.

Yeah Comic and Suicide Squad Boomerangs are imminently playable, but Suicide Squad Boomerang is pure value town assuming you can keep him on his feet!

and yeah the Lazarus Pit is basically off the scrap heap, and in Batman there is not really a scrap heap but there are models that were popular for a bit and have been kinda rotated out of frequent play, and we want to kick the tires on them to see if they are still value.

Colin was Super quiet in this one, and trying to turn up the volume would cause Eggy to blow out my speakers. Good discussions though.

Hey thanks pimp. Lazarus pit is models that don't see a lot of play. The discussion was about suicide squad boomerang. We could try out the comic boomerang I think he's got legs as well.

Another fun episode. You guys definitely aren't digging at the dregs to talk about this game, seems like you all put a lot of thought into trying a lot of different lists.

Is the Lazarus Pit specifically you guys sparking life into lesser played models or is the Lazarus Pit just the Batman-brand label for Dojo?

Also, are there two different versions of Captain Boomerang? I can easily find the comic version on knightsmodels webstore but sometimes when I google Captain Boomerang I also find a Suicide Squad movie rendition of the model. Not sure where I need to go to find every model of Batman Miniatures Game.
