Hachette Games and Gigamic announced the upcoming tile placement game Akropolis will be coming to the US on July 1st 2022. "Construct the most prestigious Akropolis and develop cohesive districts for your citizens. As you create new buildings, you will expand your city - either spreading out or building up. The higher your stacks of tiles, the more valuable the buildings! Just make sure you don't run out of stone; it's a finite and valuable resource for every architect!" Gameplay Overview Take on the role of an architect and build your own akropolis in ancient Greece. Try to construct districts of similar buildings and stack them high to increase their value. Add plazas as multipliers for even more points! Each turn, choose an available tile and add it to your city. The further down the construction site the tile is, the more stone you'll need to pay to take it. Immediately add the tile to your city, either expanding outward or stacking higher.

Aquaman #14 - Throne of Atlantis, Prologue Review

Aquaman #14 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?

Colors/Ink/Lettering - 5/5

- Does the work blend well with the artist? Is the coloring/inking enjoyable and easy to distinguish what's happening? Can I easily read the lettering?

Layout/Flow - 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? How well did the issue further develop the characters? Did I enjoy reading the issue?

Verdict - 5

- I've never been a DC Comics reader until recently and so far I've not been too disappointed. Aquaman has actually been one of the books I enjoy reading. On the cover we see Aquaman's brother Ocean Master in what appears to be holding somebody at submission. While not something we see in the issue it does have that bad guy domination vibe. Overall I enjoyed this issue, the art is good and the pacing doesn't seem to get interrupted when we switch to Black Manta and Amanda Waller. As for the plot, Aquaman is going to see his brother about the recent attack on the mainland. While Orm denies any involvement I believe Aquaman is still untrusting of his brother. The side story involves Manta and Waller and her attempt to recruit him for Suicide Squad. Manta refuses because he states its a death sentence and the only person that has that honor is Aquaman. This seems like a good stepping stone for the Throne of Atlantis story Arc and I will be looking forward to how it unfolds in Aquaman and Justice League.
