  1. @jonamok I see what you mean... it's for sale for just £20 on Amazon.co.uk... in Spanish! (bit naughty as it's something you could miss if you weren't paying attention and blinded by an apparent bargain). My core box arrived today so looking forward to cracking that open later (won't have time to give it a run through till at least the weekend tho). Are there any recommended online places that sell the packs for the going rate when they're more readily available?
  2. Thanks @Hexx - I've chucked an order in for the Core box to see if it's for me before going crazy. If so I guess I'll have to resign myself to it being a slow burn on picking up the Mythos packs as I go as I'd like to play them in some sort of order (although I did read somewhere that you technically can play each one as a stand alone - not sure if that was true though as I got the impression they built off one another). A slow burn might not even be a problem when my spare time can be a bit limited. Really surprised that they didn't use the Return To sets for the older modules to bundle up all the Mythos packs with some new cards so they could charge a premium. Seems like it would have been easier for them than issuing random reprints on the older Mythos packs.
  3. Another BOGOF offer on Marvel on Comixology right now (code is MARVEL20) https://www.comixology.co.uk/Marvel-Buy-One-Get-One-Free-Sale/page/23828?ref=c2l0ZS9pbmRleC9kZXNrdG9wL3NtYWxsQ2Fyb3VzZWw
  4. Be interested everyone's view of Arkham Horror Card Game - I've been away from traditional tabletop gaming for over twenty years but I'm getting the sudden urge to start playing `something` again. Was always a fan of CoC but AH seems like something I could stumble my way through solo in the event that I can't get the other half to play through it with me. edit: sorry, should have been a bit more specific - outside of the Core box it looks like the expansions and Mythos packs are quite and investment. Just wondering what the availability of the packs is like outside of the Covid-19 situation? Some of the packs seem impossible to get or going for twice the price. Is this the norm?
  5. Bit slow getting in on the Grendel chat, but a lot of love here for the War Child arc. My first exposure to it as a pre-Teen was via a Dark Horse anthology mag from my local newsagents - typical for back then, it got cancelled before the story ended (same as Toxic which introduced me to loads of Pat Mills, Kevin O'Neil and Alan Grant stories that have stayed with me; Marshall Law, The Dinnerladies from Hell, Psychokiller, Detritus Rex, Accident Man etc). Anyway, asked my mum as she was going on a big shopping trip to Cardiff, to see if she could get a copy of the TPB from Forbidden Planet. Was gobmsacked when she actually came back with it (that almost never happened back in the day). Read it cover to cover countless times and still love it to this day - it's got the right blend of sci-fi and horror for me (no spoilers here if Flub's going to read it). Didn't even know it was part of a wider universe till many years later. Because I'd started with War Child, and it felt too perfect to my brain, the previous stories just didn't grip me as much when I tried to read them a few years back and I moved on to something else. I see that there's a new one, Grendel Odyssey released in the last few months - not sure how that's turned out but will have to see if I can pick up the trade at some point (as it looks to be simialr to War Child going by the art alone).
  6. Tiny bit more free stuff - some recent DC single issues this time: DCeased #1 https://www.comixology.co.uk/DCeased-2019-1/digital-comic/766526?ref=c2VhcmNoL2RldGFpbC9kZXNrdG9wL2dyaWRMaXN0L2l0ZW1zU2VhcmNoRGV0YWlsTGlzdA Harleen #1 https://www.comixology.co.uk/Harleen-2019-1/digital-comic/797603?ref=c2VhcmNoL2luZGV4L2Rlc2t0b3Avc2xpZGVyTGlzdC90b3BSZXN1bHRzU2xpZGVy UK links this time
  7. Bit late now I know, but the other way to do it is just replace the .com with co.uk and that would have taken you straight there.
  8. Just glad to share the goodies. Apologies to anyone I didn't tag who's a regualr in here - I just grabbed the first names I could see on the page before I had to start work and hoped the thread bump would do the rest.
  9. @Charliemouse @Pistol @AK Bell @Mr. Gerbik @womblingfree @Flub @Nick R Lots more free Marvel stuff on Comixology, including Dr Strange: Way of the Weird mentioned above; https://old.reddit.com/r/Marvel/comments/gds7in/a_bunch_of_marvel_volumes_are_up_for_free_on/ First volume of BPRD Plague of Frogs also free; https://www.comixology.co.uk/B-P-R-D-Plague-of-Frogs-Vol-1/digital-comic/229948?ref=c2VhcmNoL2luZGV4L2Rlc2t0b3Avc2xpZGVyTGlzdC9pdGVtU2xpZGVy
  10. @Mr. Gerbik Lovely stuff, thank you - there's some cracking recent titles in there for me to read.
  11. No idea why they're doing it again, but Amazon have some of the less recent (as in a month or so older) digital Marvel Trades as cheaper than on Comixology again. I'm guessing it's because of the Comixology two for the price of one deal, but with the prices being all over the place be sure to check before you buy.
  12. That's all DC's digital releases shoved on on the end of April then; https://www.newsarama.com/49651-dc-s-april-1-titles-scheduled-for-april-28-on-comixology.html Wonder if Marvel are going to do this week and then also drop it for a bit? Not that I'm really complaining, I'm behind on something like 12+ months of reading some titles, so got more than enough to keep me going.
  13. This is a real well timed post for me to throw out a question - I'm going to use the time to catch up on the vast backlog of stuff I have to read, but I'm finding my 10 inch Samsung tablet is just annoying me now when it comes to double pages. I'm thinking of getting something 12 inch - is the difference definitely worth it? Anyone have any recommendations that aren't Apple based?
  14. I've been seeing a bit about associations and retailers asking the comic companies not to throw them under the proverbial bus when it comes to going only digital. I get it but I can't imagine even Marvel or DC could sustain an extended shut down with no content coming out, so that's surely going to have to make it a necessity at some point to keep things turning over? And Comixology themselves needs to keep releasing in order to stay afloat (as I can't imagine Amazon being too happy if their margins started to dip). So then it starts to look like a question of who goes under the wheels of the bus first... Then again you'd think now would be an fantastic time for an epic Comixology sale given people need stuff to do and read, but they don't seem bothered.
  15. Same for me with We3 and Pride of Baghdad - thoroughly enjoyed both but jesus did it tug on my heart strings. Rover Red Charlie by Garth Ennis is another simialr one. While I can take or leave Ennis' Crossed stuff, putting a bunch of animals surviving that end of the world scenario worked really well (albeit it really got me in parts).
