February 2015 Update

Basically nothing RPG related to report this month. Have been watching more 1970’s and 1980s SF movies. Probably not going to be much except movies and some reading for the next few months while I finish my onsite clinical training.

Here’s a few pages of scans from my 1980s Holothom notebook to tide us over until next month. These are about spellcasting and religion. (I skipped over the several pages of custom spell lists I had made up for the campaign, but you can see the last bit of them on the first scan.)

Comic TPB Status Update #8

Since the last update, I have read:

from The New Defenders Vol. 1: Defenders 122-125

The original Defenders leave, and Beast takes charge of a mix of old and new members. (Back in the 1980s I didn’t actually start reading until #126 I think, when the title officially changed to “The New Defenders.” I think I picked it up to find out what the original X-Men where up to.)

Probably last comic status update for a while, as trying to get focus back onto RPGs.

Comic TPB Status Update #7

Since the last update I have read:

from Essential Uncanny X-Men Vol. 4: Uncanny X-Men 169-173 (Morlocks! Wolverine’s Wedding! The debut of “punker Storm!”)

punker Storm

from New Mutants Classic Vol. 1: The New Mutants 5-7

This is a period in which it seems to be read a couple X-Men, read a couple New Mutants as the storylines take place in a very specific order.

(NEXT UP: The New Defenders Vol. 1, which has 3 of the original X-Men in it – Beast, Angel, and Iceman. Then more X-Men and on to Avengers – Absolute Vision Book 1.)

Comic TBP Status Update #6

Better post one of these before they get away from me.

from Epic Iron Man – The Enemy Within: Iron Man 169-170

from Incredible Hulk – Regression: Incredible Hulk 286-290, Incredible Hulk Annual 12

from Essential Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider-Man Vol. 4: Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider Man 80-83

from Thor by Walter Simonson Vol. 1: Thor 337-341 (the Beta Ray Bill saga! This was right before I actually started reading Thor back in 1983, so I’d never actually read it before. Awesome stuff.)

Trying to slow down a bit if possible, as don’t want to get ahead of some books that are being released soon. Especially waiting for “The Amazing Spider-Man Black Costume Saga Book 1” but that is still a whole month away 😦

(NEXT PLANNED: back to Essential Uncanny X-Men Vol. 4 and New Mutants Classic Vol. 1. There’s going to be a lot of alternating back and forth between the mutant titles coming up.)

Comic TPB Status Update #5

Since the last update I have read:

from Incredible Hulk – Pardoned: Incredible Hulk 282-285

from Essential Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider-Man Vol. 4: Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider-Man 75-79

from Thing Classic Vol. 1: The Thing #1 (note: as best I can tell this probably should be read before Fantastic Four 251, as the suggested reading order I am using plops it right in the middle of a multi-issue FF adventure in the Negative Zone)

(NEXT PLANNED: starting Incredible Hulk – Regression, back to Epic Iron Man – The Enemy Within, more Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider-Man Vol. 4)
