Blood Bowl: Looks Like Bloody Fun

Blood Bowl Killer Contract #2

It was my lack of athletic ability that drew me to science fiction and comic books, after all you didn’t have to hit or kick a silly ball when it came to zapping space aliens or commanding a starship. So with rare exception I tend to look down my nose at anything associated with sports — however with Blood Bowl Killer Contract #2 I’ll have to make an exception.

Published by Boom! Studios this book looks pretty funny as by putting together two negatives (football and silly fantasy escapist fantasy that I hate as a hardcore science fiction fanboy) you get a real plus. There’s something that just seems to work well by putting together the false bravado of jocks with the over the top world of elves, dwarves, orcs, and ogres. I think part of what makes this story by Matt Forbeck is that the artwork by Lads Helloven just pushes the concept further over the top. In short you should think of getting a copy of this when it comes out on July 16th, 2008.

Not only will I recommend this comic book, but I’ll go out on a limb here: If Boom! Studios ever manages to get this concept made into a film I’d be the first on line to get tickets…
