The Avengers #1
 
It has been nearly six years since Janet Van Dyne indulged in one too many Margaritas beside the Mansion swimming pool, and unwittingly brought about the disassembly of the Avengers. And now in The Avengers #1, after a Civil War, a Secret Invasion and a Siege, we have finally come full circle.
 
I was not expecting to enjoy this book, but was pleasantly surprised. Read More »
Gail Simone’s return to Birds of Prey is something I’ve been eagerly anticipating, and marks the first time I’ve felt the need to buy an individual issue of one of the ‘Bat books’ since the end of RIP, longer still since I bought anything to do with Birds of Prey, which was something I’d reluctantly dropped way back with the post Infinite Crisis ‘One Year Later’ shake up. Despite checking up on the title whenever a new story arc got underway, I just never felt if quite found it’s feet again, or really knew what the team should be in the context of the greater DCU.Thankfully, several things had given me hope enough to actually buy this new first issue. First and foremost amongst them, is Simone’s other team book, the consistently awesome Secret Six, which alone gives her at least the first story arc to impress me enough to convince me to keep buying. The return to Gotham, the classic team line up of Oracle, Black Canary and Huntress, and the tie in to Brightest Day, all cemented my decision. Read More »

Abysmal turnout, only six people, although to be honest I hadn’t given people much of an advance warnig of the event as we only had the hall booked from Tuesday. Good fun though, a long time since we played constructed at Warcraft so took a while to get into game mode.
Apart from the first game, when I drew pretty badly my Priest discard deck performed and fared pretty well.

1= Wayne Hepworth 3-1 (Alliance Death Knight)(-2)
1= Graham Beadle 3-1 (Horde Priest)(-2)
3  David Moakes 2-2 (Alliance Mage)(+2)
4  Adrian Macro 2-2 (Horde Warrior)(-6)
5= James Warrener 1-3 (Horde ?)(+4)
5= Donovan Macro 1-3 (Alliance Mage)(+4)

Two tournaments this weekend, both with relatively low turnouts
I played in both events, which is rare for me, mainly because I’m trying to prove to some of the kids that you don’t need to use all the best synchro’s and all the expensive cards to play a competitive deck. The deck I’ve been running has Mirror Force and two Tuners Schemes. It had posted 3-2 records in its two previous runouts.

Results are as follows: Read More »
