Coming out just in time for Christmas is the hardcover edition of 2015’s Tank Girl from legendary creators Alan Martin and Jamie Hewlett along with a tank full of great artists including Brett Parson, Warwick Johnson-Cadwell, Jonathan Edwards, Jim Mahfood, Craig Knowles and Philip Bond (in fact that's all of them)
When the announcement dropped that Tank Girl was coming back with Jamie Hewlett on art more than a few people were highly excited, for those the series needs no introduction. There Booga infested dreams were seemingly answered with wonderfully obscure stories filled with innuendo and obscure references. This Hardcover treatment then is the icing on the cake as we get to see Tank Girl et al in a large vibrant format.
For the newbie this is a great introduction into the eeries as we get brief but funny character bios and the stories themselves do not require any previous knowledge of the series to appreciate the onpage goings on. The hardback looks lovely and will be the perfect place to go back and start your Tank Girl collection from the start.
For those that know me Chess is the first game I ever really felt at home playing. The one on one battle filled with strategy and misdirection is still to this day the best game in the business. So to say when I saw this little beauty it was love at first sight would be an understatement.
The use of Neil Gaiman's Sandman motif gives the pieces a style all of their own, making this a unique set to own. The Sandman is one of Vertigo's best titles and if you have not dived into the series I really suggest you do. As for the set it comes in at $249.99 and that is a rather hefty wedge of cash but for a set like this it's a fair price (I have a marble set that was roughly the same cost). One thing is for sure after playing long into the night you find your sleep disturbed by more than just missed opportunity to steal tour opponents Queen.

What this is
The random chat is changing a little to be just as the title says. This is going to function as my place to chat about things that can come from anywhere, from TV to films to Sport to gaming. Most things are up for discussion even though I will avoid the key no no's like Religion, Politics and Macro Economics (Micro economics of the gaming/comics world though is still fair game) and of course the biggie whether the Spice Girls were the greatest musical group of all time or not. I hope to bring a taste of something different in these posts and please feel free to comment where you see fit.
