Assassin’s Creed – 1 Desmond Review

January 4, 2013 // 0 Comments

This is first volume of the French comic/graphic novel series of Assassin’s Creed books. This volume starts off with Subject 16 and an ancestor named Aquilus, but it’s very much about Desmond and Altair. It tells how Desmond was kidnapped and came to be at Abstergo, and shows some key missions of Altair’s. For the most part, this volume [...]

Willie Nelson is an undeniable American legend of Country-Western music. But there has always been more to Willie than his music; he’s an actor, a writer, and an advocate for several causes.

There hasn’t been many attempts at a wrestling encyclopedia, and outside of the WWE produced one none have been a “must have” for [...]
