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! 

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #184 Review

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #184 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 - 4/5

- 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 care for the cover of this issue. It's Zarana and Road Pig who are in the story are not really a prominent figure, it's also the 4th cover in a row with a profile shot. Added to that the RI cover isn't anything special either. The are in the book is following the nostalgia feel from the original G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero by Marvel but that also leads to the issue I have with the layout, it just feels bland at times. What can I say about the story, nothing really happens. COBRA is still setting up their new base of operations in California, while the Joe's are on the hunt for Darklon. I'm not entirely sure why I keep reading this series, I guess again for the nostalgia of the 80's and for those few shining moments where the comic gets interesting.
