Humble Bundle has prepped a big stash of Transformers comic books by IDW for $1. Or more, if you want more comics. More comics is good.
See within for ’em details.
Writeups.org is an encyclopaedia of characters in genre fiction — comic books, video games, action movies, etc. It offers illustrated, researched profiles. These also include technical data for role-players. If you need a robust understanding of a character’s abilities, personality, history, etc. this is *the* place to be.
A Cajun mercenary veteran turned private detective. From the excellent Cinder & Ashe DC Comics limited series.
As of March of 2019, this profile was overhauled and received M&M game stats. So, even if only in this respect, les zaricos sont salés.
The second part of our series of character profiles for Marvel Comics’ Dr. Barbara “Bobbi” Morse, aka Huntress and Mockingbird.
This covers an interim area where she has acquired heroic-level martial and athletic skills. She appears as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, then as maverick counter-intelligence operative the Huntress, then debuts her Mockingbird identity.
Sharp and classy private detective in 1980s New Orleans. Works as the partner to ex-mercenary Ashe. From an excellent DC Comics miniseries.
As of March of 2019, this entry has been improved and received M&M stats that wear a raspberry beret. The kind you find in a second-hand store.
An obscure enemy of the early X-Men, then of Ka-Zar and Mockingbird, back in the days.
He was never quite developed but he has ties to Latin American mobs, the Mayan gods, the Savage Land, oil cartels and other uncommon story elements. So there’s potential here.
An older porn photographer who is also a 1980s guns-toting urban wasteland vigilante caught in an odd situation. You know.
As of February of 2019, this profile got its texts, illustrations and stats polished. It also received photogenic M&M stats.
A traditional — and remarkably dangerous — enemy of the Black Panther. This profile is filled with stuff about Wakandan history and politics, as M’Baku is a much much more interesting character than most people think. Only a fool underestimates the White Gorilla !
This is the second half of our Man-Ape (M’Baku) character profile, with a link to the first half.
As of February of 2019 this profile was overhauled. It was also cleft, since the explanations about all the Wakanda stuff made it a bit long.
Aggressive urban vigilante with dangerous melee skills and an oversexed attitude.
As of February of 2019, this profile received HD pictures, another round of polishing – and lurid, sticky M&M stats.
It’s time for the first of our thrice-yearly calls for donation for 2019 !
As always, this call doubles as a summary of what’s been happening on writeups.org (and why) since the previous call.
This is DC Comics’ Courtney Whitmore, the future Stargirl, during her early career as the Star-Spangled Kid. It’s a “Year One” sort of writeup.
As of February of 2019, it has been polished a little bit more and received brazen, aggressive, irresponsible M&M stats.
A sample, but atypical, Special Forces trooper of the Galactic Republic during Star Wars’s Old Republic era and from the SWTOR video game. Comes with historical context primers, particularly about the military.
As of February of 2019, this profile was revised for style and concision, M&M-ified, and split in two to make certain it’s not too long to read in one sitting.
This is the second half for our sample, fleshed out Old Republic Special Operations Trooper in what is now the Star Wars Legends continuity. With a link to part #1.
This pair of profiles is also the one with the primer about the Old Republic era, useful for many of our Star Wars profiles.
This is where our chronological series of profiles for Mockingbird (Dr. Barbara “Bobbi” Morse) starts.
So, her early 1970s Ka-Zar (lord of the jungle !) material with the bright red rompers. At this point she’s not Mockingbird yet.
