Re: An ICONS zine?
- -->(Again, just examples: Joe and Fabricio are already busy, Walt I suspect is very busy now that they've taken over Supers!)<---
Hey thanks for the shout out. Yeah we are SUPER busy (ok I won't make a joke like that again) but I am usually pretty quick with an article. It's like trying to save money. You just cut out that fast food for lunch one day a week and look at all the loot you save. If i cut out watching Gangnam Style Videos on you tube... plenty of time to write.
That would also be an exercise in keeping my write-y muscles flexed.
In any case, if a zine does happen we should make shout outs to folks already putting in the time to keep our games full of ideas (see above mentioned dudes hard at work constructing their digital fortresses of solitude). Fans make a game and devoted fans can keep a game going long after it has faded from the glitz of the red carpet.
Congratulations to both of you on your new (and sort of new) (ad)ventures in home ownership.

> I have some ideas for addition (and more regular) ICONS content â" things have been a bit slow getting started (par for the course for ICONS, I know) due to me moving into a new house (just yesterday, in fact) and wrapping up other things on my schedule, plus getting Dan "The Man" Houser going on new stuff when he's already busy with things for Stark City. More will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
> Still, I don't have any objection to an ICONS 'zine per se, but I wonder if it's really the model for the current age of publishing. Some 'zine-like things may happen for ICONS (again, lots of ideas) but probably not in a "compiled monthly magazine" format.
