Nice! Did you back the Kickstarter? I found the game very confusing to start with, luckily we had a guy on hand to walk us through it and play a few rounds, which is always 1000% better than just reading the rulebook.

It's such a beautiful game and doesn't really look like anything else I've seen before. I think if you were to play in a pub or bar it would turn a lot of heads.

My other half did, so it was a surprise for me when it turned up. We'd only just learnt how to play cassino (historical reenactment FTW) so the parallels meant it wasn't too confusing, though like I said one or two of the rules in the book could do with some elucidation. We played it in the pub on Friday night and had some curious folks ask about it. The excellent design - especially of the luminaries - gives it a certain air of the occult, which doesn't feature at all and, I'll be honest, I kinda wished it did; but that's not a criticism, just my imagination getting away with me.

I went to a launch event here in Portland last night for a game called Illimat that was co-created by one of my favourite bands The Decemberists.

Been playing this for a few nights now. It's essentially the old 'cassino' card game but with a few twists. The rules aren't *super* clear to begin with, but an hour on YouTube later and we realised we'd been playing it right. Better with more than two people, but a lot of fun. Certainly showed me how shoddy my basic arithmetic skills are.

I don't like having to come on here to intercede but I would like to reiterate that aggressive behaviour will not be tolerated and will lead to temporary bans. Disagreements are fine but this thread is over the line - please desist.

Tidy.  Any chance we can show our interest in advance.  Even to the extent of stumping up cold hard cash?

No, sorry - it'll only be at the shows and what's left will be on the shop.

Pity it's only going to be available at the tooth booth at the con.

For unknown reasons the article excludes the detail that any left over after the shows will be available from our online shop. Full details at CBR: http://www.cbr.com/preacher-co-creator-steve-dillon-charity-sketchbook/

But why give away your prime new material which is still shifting trades?

A point raised in this week's podcast - we've seen absolutely zero cannibalisation of sales. The Mega Collection has actually boosted sales of our comics and graphic novels.

Oops sorry, been a bit tardy updating this thread!

Molcher, as I already have all of the stories in Brothers of the Blood and therefore won't be buying it, is there any chance that (after it's no longer on sale in shops) you could post that essay on the forum somewhere?

No chance of that, sorry.

His earliest Judge Dredd art is a stand-out. Signalled a great talent.

I loved that story. Funnily enough, I finally twigged it was the same artist when I saw his work on Indigo Prime, specifically the way he drew tubes - whether poking from a juve's head or the side of an interdimensional HQ. His work for Marvel UK was stellar, especially Black Axe.
