Major Spoilers Poll of the Week
I’m a Gamer
Ever since Dr. Will appeared on the Major Spoilers Podcast, there has been an increase in my traffic regarding games and gamers, and all the cool games that are out there. That got me thinking that “gaming” is a bit more broad than one might initially expect based on one’s current views.

Will there be any “Internet breaking” news that comes at the San Diego Comic Con this year? (comment here)

Discussion:
The Red Star (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Red_Star)
The Red Star is a comic book series by Christian Gossett set in a sci-fi/fantasy world described by Gossett as “Mythic [Soviet] Russia”. The “Lands of The Red Star” were inspired by both Russian folklore and military history. The series is thus heavily reminiscent of a post-World War II Soviet Russia mixing technology and sorcery.
