This week, Paul and Nick join Mike to discuss comic book impulse buys, the value of an original graphic novel, and how even after years of comic book reading, if the interior art doesn’t match the cover art, we still get a little disappointed.
It’s hard to imagine a world without Tetris. Since its initial creation in 1984, the game has achieved a sort of pop culture ubiquity rare among video games. Tetris feels like more than just the most popular video game ever created; it has become as iconic and well known as chess or Scrabble. Like those games, Tetris’s simplicity makes it easy to pick up, yet it takes patience to truly master. Of course, the game didn’t arrive out of thin air 30 years ago, it was created by Russian computer scientist Alexey Pajitnov, and in this new book, cartoonist Box Brown shows that the journey Tetris took from Moscow to your smartphone is just as entertaining and engaging as the game itself.
