I’ve mentioned Mechwarrior: Dark Age #1: Ghost War in passing before. While I’m in the frame of mind to enthuse about Battletech/Mechwarrior you really have to read the afore mentioned Ghost War by Michael A. Stackpole. Stackpole crafts the story so well that you don’t have to have any grounding in the Battletech universe. And I’m sure if he took all the BT references out it would still be a kickass piece of Sci-Fi.
Also, with Muppets Most Wanted on, a quick point. I never thought I’d ever in my life see a musical number with Tina Fey, Ray Liotta and Danny Trejo. Wow.
