Howdy Gatherers, and we are at it once again.  Sure, Thanksgiving is around the corner before you know it, but its not as if the month of November exists inside of an entertainment vaccuum.  You have your choice to go see Doctor Strange at the theatre, but hey, for those not as fortunate, how about a suggestion or two when it comes to satisfying your reading needs?  Let’s get it on!

My first pick goes to the 2000 AD Script book, written by Rob Williams, et al. and drawn by Brett Ewins, et al.  Simply put, this book is the sum-total of everything the true fan of everything the world of 2000 AD ever had become.  Its a compilation of scripts and artwork from some of the publisher’s greatest creators, all put together for the casual fan or even the serious writer.  Available from https://www.2000adonline.com/.

“From the minds of Mega-Masters. Scripts from the UK’s leading comic by some of its most successful writers, alongside the completed artwork.

My second pick goes to Slam #1, written by Pamela Ribon and drawn by Veronica Fish. This book looks over the story of two friends in a roller derby league who have to decide their loyalty to each other when they are drafted into different teams.  In the realm of roller derby, apparently its a survivalist realm, and its not about how many times one gets knocked down but about how many times you get right back up.  Available from http://www.boom-studios.com/.

“Television Without Pity’s Pamela Ribon (Rick and Morty) and artist Veronica Fish (Archie) dive into the fast-paced, hard-hitting world of roller derby! Jennifer Chu and Maise Huff (aka Knockout and Ithinka Can on the track) have been best friends since their first day of Fresh Meat Orientation for the Eastside Roller Girls, but when they get drafted for two different teams they’ll have to figure out if the bond between them is stronger than the pull of a team when a win is on the line. You get slammed on the track and slammed in life, and in both cases you have to take your hits and get back up again!”
