Tomb Raider

Interview: Patrick Moran discusses Game On 2.0

When you walk into the Game On 2.0 exhibit at the Ontario Science Centre, the first thing you’ll notice is a massive projection of PONG. That’s to be expected. The new gallery chronicles the history of video games and PONG is doubtlessly one of the originals.

Daomu #1 Review

First described to me as “Indiana Jones meets Tomb Raider”, this does Daomu #1 a disservice. Yes, the plot revolves around a secret society of tomb robbers, so the comparison is understandable, but the preceding quote is more of a marketing tag for Image to hook potential readers. Opening the comic though, the text on the first page reveals an even deeper back story and world mythos than those Western franchises ever achieved. The digitally rendered art, by Ken Chou, is so distinctly 21st century and “not-American”, that this tag line will feel almost misleading after finishing the issue.
