ComicsFix and RPGs


I love this page, don't you? I was inspired by more recent work on Hawkeye and Young Avengers - the use of motion and composition to tell a story of continued movement in a single page. Keith took my idea and executed it brilliantly. Theresa and Kludge are very dynamic here.

Two items of news this week.

First, chapters 1 and 2 (and their bonus stories, Narrow and Fly Away Home) are available via ComicsFix now. ComicsFix is sort of like Netflix for comics. You pay $9 a month and get access to hundreds of comics to read. There's stuff from Dynamite like the Shadow, Vampirella, Voltron and Army of Darkness. There's stuff from Valiant like X-O Manowar and Shadowman. There's Lilith Dark and Beowulf. And a lot of webcomic stuff, too!

If you have a ComicsFix subscription or are getting one, please give Mysteries of the Arcana a read there. We get paid per page view.

In other news, I am now a line editor for Flaming Crab Games. We are developing a monthly series of short, Pathfinder-compatible books called "From the Logbooks of the Flaming Crab". Each month we'll be focusing on a different topic. We're recruiting now for the first three topics: Winged Cavalry, Cooking Magic and Pagan Holidays. We're not looking for pitches on material - we've got each installment outlined. Instead, you apply to be a writer and, if you're hired, we give you an assignment with instructions on content and format (though there is still room for creativity within that framework). Details are here! If you're interested, consider applying. This is a paying gig.

Bricks of the Arcana will go up Friday and I'll be posting a new MotA and blog entry next Wednesday! See you then.
