Rocketeer Adventures #2 (of 4)
Darwyn Cooke, Lowell Francis, Mark Waid (w) • Darwyn Cooke, Gene Ha, Chris Weston, Pinups by Geof Darrow (a) • Alex Ross, Dave Stevens (c)
This issue of ROCKETEER ADVENTURES continues to soar with a trio of stories crafted by masterful comics creators. Mark Waid and Chris Weston provide a pulse-pounding story of revenge set to a colorful backdrop of the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge, Lowell Francis and Gene Ha put Cliff through his paces in an-all action extravaganza that has him fighting tooth and nail for his very survival—plus a special guest star! Finally, Darwyn Cooke delivers the goods (as always!) with a tale that we won’t say one word about—it’s too good to even hint at and ruin the surprise! Plus, a pair of pin-ups, BOTH by Geof Darrow—his incredible piece was just too massive to be held to the confines of a single page, so he’s supplying a gorgeous TWO-PAGE pin-up!

Rating: ★★★★★

Rodrigo
Dungeons and Dragons Daggerdale
Travel to the Forgotten Realms, where the adventure begins in the Dalelands, nestled in the remote Desertsmouth Mountains.

From the sulfuric catacombs of the mines of Tethyamar, to the dizzying heights of the Tower of the Void, Dungeons & Dragons: Daggerdale combines the depth of Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition with intuitive, action packed combat that will satisfy the most seasoned of adventurers.

Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

Dejah Thoris has united all the red Martians nations against the Jeddak of Yorn, but they are no match for him in his living tomb, the terrible War Colossus. Dejah must turn to Yorn’s son, the only one who knows the Colossus’s weakness. Exploiting the weakness will require a miracle of Martian engineering, and it just so happens that Yorn’s son is a genius, the likes of which Mars has not seen for over a thousand years! All is not well, however: there is a traitor among Dejah’s allies…

MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK
Scott Wegener appeared on last week’s Major Spoilers Podcast to talk up upcoming Atomic Robo projects.  While we fully expect the robot uprising to occur at some point, it did make us question if robots would take over the world.  Wegener was doodling around this week and whipped up a picture of Magnus: Robot Fighter taking on Atomic Robo, which seems like a good enough reason to create a Poll of the Week.

FIGHT!

FIGHT! Who will walk away the winner?
