It’s weird the way things happen. Last year, we had our exclusive first look at the Ghostbusters board game during Nerdtacular 2015. Then a few months ago, we sat down to record a Munchkin Land episode where we finally got to play the game (no, it hasn’t been released yet, that’s how far ahead we are). During that recording, I mentioned a new Kickstarter for a game sequel should happen in 2016, and now it is!

What this comic does is explore one such cult, and in an era when we like to think NOTHING will set us back on our heels, this book sent shivers up and down my spine!
It’s always great to talk with independent comics creators, particularly those who are adding fresh storytelling to the industry! This week, I talk with Justin Bartz, the writer and co-creator of an excellent book titled Project Shadow Breed. Both issue zero and number one are now available, and I enjoyed them both!
