  1. The Army of Darkness soundtrack is also worth a listen!

    And props for the Transmetropolitan recommendation. It’s a killer comic book that more people should be aware of, and the inspiration for my next big campaign

    • Thank you for your comment. I’ll have to give the Army of Darkness soundtrack a try.

      Mike W. is a good friend of mine who is also a librarian and a graphic novel fanatic. If anything, his GN likes tend to skew more indie press than mine but he is never wrong about quality.
