New Beginnings - Faster Than Light #1

Posted by Proud Lion Contributor on

By Cyril Bunt This first issue of Faster Than Light begins by introducing the reader to inventor Dr Saul Frederickson, the man responsible for space travel at the speed of light becoming possible - or at least, as he insists, the man who created the formula. After the semantics are explained during his interview on the "Charlie Live Show", the interview pushes forward by explaining that “spaceships now have the capacity to travel to new solar systems within a very short time". At this point, I’m hooked by what possibilities are going to become available. We next meet two characters in a shuttle on their way...

We knew we ran the risk of our games being oversubscribed, but were still blown away by the number of people wanting to be involved! The last thing we want to do is have to turn...

New Beginnings - We Are Robin #1

Posted by Proud Lion Contributor on

by Matt Puddy It’s fair to say that Scott Snyder’s Endgame certainly threw a spanner in the works when it comes to Gotham City and the whole Bat family. With a rather large, Bruce-shaped hole left behind, it was inevitable someone would try to fill the void. It is only minutes after being shipped into another foster home when we see Duke sneak out and hit the streets on a quest for justice. This time he bites off more than he can chew by plunging himself into the middle of an underground cult, leaving himself exposed to a horde set...
