Previously in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Casey Jones came to the turtles after being beaten up during his father's latest intoxicated stint of violence. True to his aggressive idiom, Raphael sets out to find Casey's dad in order to prevent him from doing this again.
This may come as a surprise to you, dear reader, but I happen to be a huge Doctor Who fan. On the other hand, I have not been the biggest Star Trek fan. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy most of the movies and what episodes I have seen, but I have never been devoted enough to consider myself a Trekkie or Trekker. But, when I heard that IDW was doing a crossover between the two I said, “Make it so.”
It’s another double-sized, double-priced Transformers adventure, following on the heels of the annual of Robots in Disguise’s sister series, More than Meets the Eye, which hit a few weeks back. If you are going to read both annuals, More than Meets the Eye’s technically comes first, but it is not required reading if you are on the fence or just not following that series. Likewise, readers of More than Meets the Eye will find some background in this annual relevant to recent plotlines in that series.

Jim Zub’s Skullkickers is an amazing concept. He has created two characters that do everything you are never supposed to do in a fantasy roleplaying game. His characters brutally kill anything in their path, never ask why they’re doing it, and are always terribly drunk while doing it. Actually, now that I think about it, maybe that is the way you should play a roleplaying game. Zub has done such a good job establishing his characters that every once in a while, he takes a month off from crafting amazing Skullkickers tales and let’s some of the best talent in the industry play in his crazy fantasy world. This is how we get Tavern Tales.

After the end of the Hundred Years War, rebuilding begins for all of the nations, but a new conflict breaks out surrounding the Fire Nation Colonies in the Earth Kingdom, which are really a blend of both peoples and cultures. The Earth Kingdom wants the colonies rightfully restored to them, the Fire Nation believes they should remain under their protection, and the colonies themselves just want to keep their community together.
I just put down the second book in the ongoing Mongoliad trilogy, and it is awesome. If you haven’t read my first review, please boost my page views. Also, there might be some mild spoilers for the first book in this review. This book is the collaboration of a group of sword fighters and authors who have set out to write a historically accurate adventure novel with historically accurate fights.
All right, first, let me get this out of the way: No, no one talks to any furniture in this movie. Moving on . . .
One of the more fascinating things I’ve had the privilege to study in my school days was human psychology. For a time, I coached high school sports, and in that time I taught a class on sport psychology. I find the work that B.F. Skinner did on positive and negative reinforcement to be particularly interesting, and yes, it may seem like common sense today. Nevertheless, I love how we can use positive energy to change human behavior. It can be something as simple as praising a job well done or giving a tiny token of appreciation. Positive reinforcement is far more effective at creating behavioral change than punishing negative behavior.
I thought that “The Power of Three” was the best episode so far in this series of Doctor Who. It maintained that great balance of silly and terrifying that the show is known for. There was also a great mystery, which kept the tension going throughout the entire episode. It was also refreshing to finally have an episode of this series set in present day.
