One of my favorite pasttimes . . .
has always been wargaming. I cut my teeth on Avalon Hill's PanzerBlitz and 1776 as a kid, and through all the original versions of the classic series, Squad Leader.
Great games, great times. I couldn't find a computer game as good as the old board games until I discovered Battlefront.com's tremendous Combat Mission four years ago. I've been hooked ever since.
Now, a CM player has taken the graphics from the latest version of CM, Combat Mission: Afrika Korps, and turned it into a "digital comic book" description of a battle. Very nicely done, and a great way to showcase the magnificence that is CM.
BTW, any of you three regular readers want to have a PBEM match, drop me a line.
