Dark Skullkickers Dark #1 is a terrific read. It’s filled with action, drunken buffoonery, clever concepts and colorful characters. The art is terrific, the writing is lively, and, ultimately, I only had one tiny reservation about the book, which is that I had absolutely no idea what was going on. This isn’t the fault of the writer, at least not in the way you’d think.
Indie comic book publisher Inverse Press has been quite busy in 2013, producing titles including The Blind Eye, Clown Town, and Flesh of White. In addition, April of 2013 saw the runaway success of their Kickstarter campaign for Roadkill du Jour, a 4-part series about motorcycles, magic, vengeance, voodoo, and roadkill. Now, Inverse Press has returned to Kickstarter with the hopes of funding the second issue in the series, and they need your help to continue this dark and gritty story!
Los Angeles is getting a board game café! Board game enthusiasts Robert Cron and Terry Chiu are opening up GameHaus, a fun place to hang out, drink some coffee, and try the latest Eurogame or deck builder.
GameHaus is in the middle of a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to add more board games to their library and stock the kitchen with the latest and greatest gadgets and goodies.
I recently had the chance to speak with Robert and Terry about GameHaus, and I'll go ahead and let them explain more about board game cafés and GameHaus in particular, in their own words below.

As a kid of the '80s, I grew up with several toys and cartoons, but one of the most interesting to me at the time was G.I. Joe—not because of any violent, reactionary equation, but of the simple aspect of a group of remarkable individuals coming together to fight for the side of good in a battle against evil. At the time I had very little interest in comics overall and hardly ever played a video game (aside from failing often at Mario 3), but the Joes were able to pique my interest like no other toy/comic/cartoon could. To this day, I still cannot fully explain (to myself or others) just why I enjoy the Joes, but I’m going to do my best right here, right now, for your entertainment purposes.
When I talked to my mom last week, I told her I hoped to see Man of Steel this weekend. She said, "You always did love Superman." And, I did. And, I do. It's hard to believe the last son of Krypton is 75. Harder still to believe the movie that made me fall in love with him is 30 odd years old.
Take one part True Romance, one part No Country for Old Men, and one part U Turn, and you’ll have the basic plot of Rushlights. As crime thrillers go, the plot is fairly standard. But, more important in this type of movie is the execution. And, all-in-all, Rushlights manages to hold its own.
I rounded the first corner with my back tires squealing. As I finally eased out of my Tokyo Drift, I slammed into the side of the exotic Italian racer I was in the middle of passing. The track ran between a dry-docked cruise ship and the water. Right as I approached the ship, controlled explosives released the anchors holding it in place. I watched helplessly as it slid ponderously down, trapping me between tons of steel and the unforgiving sea.
