Read The Rook

http://timecastlebooks.com/the_master_of_time
The first volume of The Rook's adventures are available for free online, and the creator of The Rook, Will DuBay himself is the mastermind behind Timecastle Books...and they are putting out archives of all The Rook's adventures.  There's an interview with DuBay from a while back here at the Mania site. If you haven't ever read the tales of Reston Dane, his grandfather Bishop, Manners the long suffering robot, etc.--click the link and get familiar with the best time traveling comic-book super-scientist/chess-master cowboy ever to pull a six-gun on a robot.  (Here's a bonus link to Rook movie rumors...)

  1. I'm looking forward to reading the Rook whenever I get around to going through my Warren archives.

    I've also concluded that the best thing a fan can do is pray that a movie is never made of one's favorite books and comics.

  2. @Scott: The Rook is far and away my favorite Warrren character. It's very nice to see that DuBay is not just reprinting the old stuff, but remastering it so that it's refreshed a bit. The first volume at the timecastelbooks.com site is nicely done.

    The movie news is older, and the whole thing will likely get derailed into development hell. I seriosuly doubt that we'll see a movie based on the Rook, but if it could be at least as good as Batman Begins, then that'd be cool. But I'd never bet on it happening. Maybe it'll get converted into a chick flick by Zak Snyder...

    ouch.
