Meg’s Radar #22

Standard

Hello everyone! I’ve been a total slacker as of late, but I’m back with a new Meg’s Radar. There are some pretty neat comics and games on here that I think you all should check out. So give them a look and as always, thank you for reading and enjoy!

The A, B, Zeees by Ricardo Sanchez

a58741c2967c8fa38828d174f9988860_originalThe A, B, Zeees is a zombie themed alphabet book filled with poetry by Ricardo Sanchez and the artistic works of New York based artist, Kidbrainer. The idea came when Sanchez was dealing with a bout of insomnia. Unable to sleep, he found himself watching a zombie movie marathon and playing word games. From his insomnia came several short poems featuring the zombie alphabet. The book will feature twenty-six illustrated pages and will be printed in the USA. Besides the book, you can snag some sweet pins and bookmarks featuring art from the book. There is also a pledge tier to get other works written by Ricardo Sanchez. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/57970062/the-a-b-zeees-a-zombie-alphabet-book

City Hood by Terrell Culbert

7a8e1cf98930b6148b4a5cdcbae297ac_originalThis is a story about two kids who were never special. However, their fate would change, when their adopted, genius brother creates a machine to make them something more. City Hood follows the story of Jessica, her younger brother Qyia, and their adopted brother, Ethan. Jessica suffers from Tourette’s Syndrome and is more often than not the victim of bullying from the neighborhood kids. Even though he tries hard to protect her, Qyia is unable to keep her safe. Ethan, the mysterious “child genius”, creates a machine that gifts his adopted siblings with amazing powers. Things quickly go awry when their abilities are caught on camera and the two are labeled as terrorists. City Hood is written and illustrated by Terrell Culbert. He is an illustrator, photographer, and director and works on the comic book centered magazine, Breathe Again Magazine (BAM). This will be his first installation of the City Hood story and he hopes that the success of this Kickstarter will help him to continue the project in the future. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/366150059/city-hood

KS Logo Main KS Banner

  • 2-8 Players
  • 15-20 Minutes
  • Age 7+

Card Castle is a slap card game that has a nostalgic feel. Players each control an army of cards and are vying for control of the castle. Players will reveal cards from their army deck onto the battlefield and they will have to be the first to slap the pile correctly to win the battle. Players can be eliminated, but the game features a mechanism that allows eliminated players to join back in on “Team Dragon”, allowing them to burn cards by winning card-slaps. The goal of the game is to add all playable cards to your army deck to become the ruler of the castle. The game features, twists, tricky look-a-likes, powerful wizards, and–of course–dragons. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1066809583/card-castle-the-fun-and-fast-paced-slap-card-game
