Wise Wizard Games announced the launch of Wacky Wizard Games, a new brand imprint focused on family-friendly, lightweight games. Three games are planned for release in 2024 as part of this new brand imprint: Star Realms Academy, Caution Signs, and Pack the Essentials. If you are interested and attending PAX Unplugged they will have prototypes of Caution Signs and Pack the Essentials. "We are super excited to be adding this new family friendly product line to our catalog. We wanted to maintain the focus of Wise Wizard Games on strategy card and dice games with geeky themes, and have created Wacky Wizard Games as an umbrella for lightweight games with a more whimsical, cute vibe," shared Debbie Moynihan, COO of Wise Wizard Games. Star Realms Academy Forge your own star realms, overloaded with cuteness! A kid friendly but still fun for grown-ups version of the popular Star Realms deckbuilding game for 2 players. A little less math, no reading necessary, but still tons of fun! 

Batman and Robin #14 - Devoured Review

Batman and Robin #14 Review


Cover - 3/5

- 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 - 4/5

- 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 - 3/5

- 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 - 3/5

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


Verdict - 3.4

- What I think: I really don't know what to think about the cover. I had almost no idea what it was or what it was supposed to be. I assume it's a pair of jokes teeth, which we do see at one point in the issue. The art suffers from DC using multiple artists in the same issue. I really disliked the start of the issue, but luckily the back-end art made up for that. I also had some issue with the layout. It seemed at times the flow, especially on one or two double pages were hard to follow, they didn't seem the normal left to right top to bottom. Also the overuse of "Eat to Live" became highly annoying and I found myself glancing over several pages rather then reading them. The story itself tried to tie up the loose ends from Batman and Robin #13 - Eclipsed but still falls flat. They somehow tie it into the Joker but not really. In the end we see Batman talking to Damian Wayne again about running off, and how the same actions caused Jason Todd's death. In the end his mother's pearl makes him forgive Damian. While I didn't hate the issue, it really fell flat and IMO didn't leave a good tie-in to the next issue's Death of the Family crossover.
