Joseph Self’s…

Selfish Thoughts

Enter the mind of Joe Self and discover two off-beat titles in the first weekly installment of Selfish Thoughts.

Alien Dice

Reminiscent of Pokémon and Digimon, Alien Dice is a game that involves techno-organic devices that, when inert, resemble common dice. When scattered on a planet, however, they merge with a non-sentient life-form, creating a creature possessing rudimentary intelligence, the ability to talk, and at least one amazing power.

The first part of the game is the collection of the newly-bonded dice. Then the battles begin…

Enter Lexx, a popular and successful player. Unfortunately, Lexx is an indentured slave, required to win three sets of the game to earn his freedom. On Earth for his final set, a confident Lexx just wants everything to go quickly and smoothly…

Enter Chelsea, college sophomore, home alone on a stormy night. When one of Lexx’s more rebellious dice bonds with Chel’s tiny kitten, Lexx reluctantly agrees to let Chel tag along for the rest of the game.

 

 

 

The New Warriors (3rd Series)

Galactus.

Dr. Doom.

Kang the Conqueror.

Magneto.

When villains like these threaten the world, a veritable army of super-heroes stands ready to oppose them. But who protects small-town America when the threat isn’t big enough for A-List heroes like the Avengers, Fantastic Four, or even Spider-Man to notice?

Why, network television, of course… at least as long as the ratings hold!

With two of their members having graduated to the big leagues, and funding scarcer than it used to be, the New Warriors reluctantly sell their services (and their dignity) to a reality-television show, where they travel the back-roads of the nation battling evil in front of the camera (for as many times as it takes to get the shot!). On the bright side, they also get a new member, whose conversations with germs easily make him the ickiest hero around.

From his secret Rocky Mountain refuge 9200 feet above the world, Joe indulges his passion for comics and other alternate realities, including his own. A long-time writer for ComicBase, his name is a veritable pun generator. You can e-mail your questions and suggestions to Joe at notestoself@msn.com.
