Wizkids Publishing

Wizkids has created a publishing division, allegedly to produce novels and comicbooks. We all know the truth, though--when a game company that already publishes novels says it wants to create a publishing division, it means they want to do roleplaying games. It's a very good idea, actually: they've got the licenses for Shadowrun and Mechwarrior, and there's ample material in Mage Knight to do a killer RPG. I guess we'll see.

Wizkids is really pulling a WotC, which I think is a great move for them--they created a new genre of game (collectible miniatures), made a zillion dollars off it, and are using it to climb their way to a major position in the gaming world. And three years ago they didn't even exist.
