This weekend, I read Petrograd... a really killer graphic novel by Phillip Gelatt and BPRD-artist Tyler Crook. It's about the conspiracy to assassinate Rasputin, told from the perspective of a British spy. This book wasn't on my radar at all when it was first released... which is a shame, because it's really good. You should check it out! CBR has an older review with a few sample pages, if you're curious.
In other news, WayForward... the folks who made the incredible Mighty Switch Force games and the DuckTales remake... are kickstarting a new game! Wayforward makes some of my favourite 2D platformers -- especially when they are working with their own original characters and game mechanics -- so I am crossing my fingers for this one.
