Checker BPG Floods The World With Superheroes Following the 2044 RPG
From the official Press Release - June 20, 2017
Checker Book Publishing Group has released 70 new images from a projected total of 700 images to appear in the game.
Superhero 2044 was the first comic book themed role playing game at the dawn of the role-playing industry and the artists that Checkerbook is bringing to the table are impressive: Sean Chen, Herb Trimpe, Jamie Tyndale, Ernie Chan, Daniel Kamarudin, Bob McLeod and dozens more...
"Our goal is to upgrade the entire system and game to be the pinnacle of super hero gaming art included", said Publisher Mark Thompson. "To bring back a legend is no easy task and today’s art in every aspect of pop culture is drop dead gorgeous. We know we have to bring our A-game. We were well into production when I had to put the company on hold to take care of my family. Much of the production is already complete and it’s all way too awesome to keep to myself.” Superhero 2044 will be crowdfunding production for both a role playing game and card game based on the world. The first campaign should launch in August 2017.
Contact sheets are attached while normal sized imagery will be available for viewing and dissemination on Checker BPG Social Media outlets located on Facebook,Twitter, Deviant Art, Pinterest (yet to come) and Instagram (yet to come).

I wasn't actually a huge fan of Robert Kirkman when I first started reading his books. He was competent, sure, but I didn't see the appeal-- The Irredeemable Ant-Man was a boring side story in the middle of Civil War and The Initiative (although I've since changed my mind about this), and his Ultimate X-Men run was, in many places, a mixed bag (although I did very much enjoy his "Phoenix?" storyline). And Marvel Zombies just seemed like a ridiculous idea--not that I bothered to try it at the time. Now, though? I've completely reevaluated my opinion on his work, and when his name is attached to a project, I'm far more likely to give it a look. I don't know if I'd classify him as a master storyteller or a comics icon--but he's very skilled, he has an incredible knack for dialog, and he writes stories that, no matter how ridiculous, seem real . In a medium where characters frequently violate the rules of physics, that's not alway

VAMPIRE VIXENS OF THE WEHRMACHT “If You Want Blood” one-shot (Bump and Grind Comics, August 2013, second printing with foreword by film maker Paul Campion) Writers: The Emperor + Alex Ronald. Artist: Alex Ronald. Letterer: Jim Campbell. Original Concept: Alex Ronald. (Parental Advisory, Adult Content) Limited print run, but digital copies are available from http://www.vampirevixens.co.uk/ If you can’t figure out what this comic is about from that title, then I’m guessing you’ve been living for decades in a cave without a DVD player and no access to cable television. VAMPIRE VIXENS OF THE WEHRMACHT is a fast-paced horror comic driven by action, rooted in World War II history, and dripping with blood, gore and tantalizing sexual imagery. What makes it work is a light-hearted approach to the subject matter, all in fun but never silly or stupid. You may find yourself laughing at several of the scenarios or chuckling at the devilish dialogue. VAMPIRE VIXENS O
