Steamforged Games, leading UK tabletop games developer and publisher (Monster Hunter World: The Board Game, DARK SOULS: The Board Game , Horizon Zero Dawn: The Board Game , Bardsung , Epic Encounters , and more) announce acquisition of the Euthia IP and a partnership with Czech studio, Diea Games, to resurrect the Euthia board game crowdfunding campaign that was cancelled in May  this year after raising over half a million dollars in just two days.  Euthia, rated 8.8 on BoardGameGeek and currently out-of-print, is an open-world fantasy sandbox RPG board game that initially ran on Kickstarter in 2020 and was well-received by the public.

Batman #14 - Funny Bones; Men of Worship Review

Batman #14 Review

Cover - 4/5

Would I pick-up the comic based on the cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the cover portray what happens in the issue?

Art - 5/5

Do I personally like this artist's style? Does the artist stay true to the characters appearance?

Color/Ink - 5/5

Does the work blend well with the artist? Is the coloring/inking enjoyable and easy to distinguish what's happening?

Layout - 5/5

Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?

Story - 5/5

Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story arc? How well did the issue further develop the characters?


Verdict - 4.7

What I think: The Cover is nothing special, its joker looking at the members of the bat family. I do like the Alternate cover with Harley, however this scene can't take place in this issue due to Batman being knocked into a chemical bath last issue. The are overall is good, but something about the coloring bugged me, nothing major, and it could be because I read on my NOOK HD+ Tablet. The story is Bruce trying to keep it together after the Joker kidnaps Alfred from last issue. He knows that Joker is trying to play out his first crimes and intends to stop him. He believes his next victim is Gordon and rushes to protect him. I found it odd that Batman had a gun, and even more so that he was using it to persuade Gordon into coming with him. I guess it's used to show the stress the Joker is putting on him. Batman tracks the Joker down to his first meeting when the Joker poisoned the water supply to confront him, but the Joker has bigger plans, he is after the entire bat family. This is a good setup issue for what I hope to be a great crossover into the other bat books.
