Episode 73 - Well Before the Planet Exploded - Week of 8/2/17

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion about the news that came out of this year's San Diego Comic Con. It's the premier event of the year in the geek world, and this year was just as busy as ever, with comics, TV, movies and anything else you can think of. And as always, our picks of the week.

What we're up to this week:
Deadlands game - general consensus is that the setting is cool, but the system is excessively complicated (sorry, Deadlands creators)
Comic series One-Hit Wonder (Image) - cool crime comic from 2015
Also Marvelman Family's Finest (Marvel) - a different take on supers
Last Girl Standing (2015 movie) - good premise, weak execution, but overall pretty good little horror flick (sparking a small tangent)
