grim's The Guild #1 review

Codex: Origins

 As a huge fan of web show, this comic was a must grab.  
 For those of you who havent been introduced to it, the Guild focuses on the players of a MMORPG very similar to World of Warcraft. The show is freely available on netflix, their website "Watchtheguild.com", and Xbox360, so theres no excuse for not knowing whats going on when you read this comic... unless you dont have internet. i guess thats an excuse.
  as a casual WoW gamer, and a fan of Felicia Day, the Guild hits allot of funny bones. Abd even if your not a fan of such things, the show also pokes fun at the stereotypical aspect of online game players.
 I will say that the comic, which steps back to the main characters life before the show, probably isnt much without the show. I mean, it does hold that "girl comics" appeal, but honestly most female comics readers like the same thing as everybody else.
 my suggestion to anyone who isnt planning on buying the second issue is to go watch the first season of the show (all of the episodes are about 10-15 minutes so dont worry), and then read it again. It may just change your point of view.

    Oh! Thats the Game 0

    The Guild #1 Dark Horse Comics Writer: Felicia Day Art: Jim Rugg I think this is a book that won’t grab anybody’s attention if they didn’t all ready know about “The Guild.”   It is nice to see Felicia Day (of The Guild, Dollhouse, and Dr Horrible’s Sing Along Blog) branch out and scribe a humorous companion comic to go along with her 3 seasons of a hilarious web show.   I’m afraid though that if you didn’t watch the show the quirkiness of Codex just doesn’t translate well.   Basically if you kno...
