This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

My original thought was "The Iron Claw" from Baron Von Raschke....

That's pretty fucking old-school...  Now I need proof that you are not, in fact, Bill Apter. :)

Seriously?

Huh. I've read it, but wasn't able to muster the same level of enthusiasm in ranking it. I'd say it was good, and maybe even in the top 1000 pieces of comic and manga work out there, maybe even way up there-but not the best.


Maybe it's rosy memories, but I fell utterly loved the comic when I read it years ago. All the story's elements seemed to "click" perfectly into place.

That, and the feeling that I could run a SR campaign with it. ;)

I can dig that. I feel the same way about the Dark Knight Returns. I never get tired of that book.
