New this week at L.A. Mood

New books
Why just read comics when you can draw them! The DC Guide to DIGITALLY DRAWING COMICS is a start to finish handbook and one stop resource!! This book shows how to give up pencil, pen, and paper and start drawing dynamic, exciting comics art entirely with computer tools. Throw your pencils and pens out the window. Do it now!!!! 


 New Games! 
City of Horror

City of horror is a backstabbing survival-horror game. As in classic zombie movies, a shambling horde is invading the city. The goal is to survive the assault. (Un)fortunately, surviving often means sacrificing some of your fellow players to the undead...


 Unlike real dungeons this one is fun! The classic game is back. Play as a Fighter, A Rogue, A Cleric, or a Wizard searching for a lost treasure in a dungeon filled with monsters.

Mythic Battles

Okay first off...Remember when we told you to throw your pens and pencils out the window? You probably shouldn't have done that. Apparently there were several fatalities. You should probably go on the lam now. Sorry-Our bad. Anyways--Mythic Greece is in chaos: Athena and Hades are at war and have sent their greatest heroes to battle. Take on the role of these generals out of legend, leading fantastic armies and lead your troops to victory! Perfect for playing in Mexico under an assumed name.

(e.g., 30 players = 23 booster packs = 7/5/4/3/1/1/1/1 booster pack prizes to the Top 8).  FNM foils distributed to the Top 2 players automatically.
