    Science Sleuths #1

    If you are a comic-book (or graphic novel) fan this is a cracking good yarn in traditional style to enjoy...

    Even more so if you are also a gamer in the pulp style as while the story itself presents plenty of character and plot ideas, there is a Scientist talent tree for those who'd like to incorporate these concepts into a pulp-style game using the D20 Modern ruleset.

    Presentation is not wonderful - the panels are well-drawn, but look like they have been photocopied before even reaching a scanner, and then te resulting images dumped more-or-less accurately (several are a bit squint) into a document to make the PDF - everything is a bit grey and indistinct and I've had to display it at 130% to have a chance of reading the text. It's not hard to produce quality camera-ready art and when your product IS the art, the comic-strip itself it is worth making the effort.

    Both the story and the actual art is good... it's what has been done with it that disappoints a bit.

    Thank you for your feedback, Megan; it's the only way we know what's needed to make our books better. The art problems you point to have actually caused us to put a hold on a couple other ongoing comics projects--we saw it, but we thought we had licked it as best we could with the stories in "Science Sleuths.". The "photocopied" look you mention is a result of us trying to get a uniform appearance to pages scanned from different magazines with varying levels of age damage. We hope, though, that like you others will be able to look past our imperfect presentation to see the greatness in these fun, classic comics. Meanwhile, we'll work harder at improving our processes.
