Writer Dwight MacPherson emailed me a copy of the second issue of Dead Men Tell No Tales last week. I was disappointed in the pacing of the first issue, but Dwight explained that they had to edit it down from a longer mini-series and that starting with #2 it was more like what he'd originally written. So I have hope.
Devil's Due sent me a preview of Snake Eyes: Declassified. Even though I'm not a fan of G.I. Joe, for some reason I want to like it and join the rest of the world in thinking that Snake Eyes is cool. I never would have bought this on my own, but I'm glad they sent it to me and I'm looking forward to reviewing it.
iHero Entertainment sent me the premiere issue of Cyber Age Adventures: The Magazine of Superhero Fiction. It's a good-looking comic-sized magazine full of prose superhero stories with spot illustrations. Hopefully it's as good as it looks.
Got a rough cut DVD of a film called Bite Me, Fanboy. I forget what it's about, but from the title I'm imagining it's a look at comic book fandom.
Another Xeric winner's sent me her comic, a book called Thread. I love that I get so many Xerix winners to review. They're always different, always good.
a.k.a. Comics sent me a copy of their Stykman #1. Looks hilarious from the cover and I just had to peek inside to see if the interior art was as fun. From the title you might expect a crudely drawn book, but it ain't. It looks very professional at first glance; it's just about a superhero made of sticks in the shape of a stick figure. He even has little stick eyes that hang by ropes from the top of his otherwise empty, round, stick head.
