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! 

X-Factor #246 - Short Story Review

X-Factor #246 Review

Cover - 5/5

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

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

Verdict - 5

What I think: After the events from the last story arc X-Factor takes time to showcase Pip. I personally have not back story on the character so for me it was good to see a feature issue. The writing and book gave me that old detective Noir feel when I read it and I really enjoyed that. When he gets a message that "X-Factor will Fall", Pip races back to their base of operations. During the cab ride Pip narrates about how X-Factor could not function without him, and that basically he is X-Factor. It goes on to show how he helps the team earn money and even fend off the Friends of Humanity. In the end we get a shocking realization of how true the statements, "Pip is X-Factor" and "X-Factor will Fall" are.
