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! 

Avengers #34 - The End Review

Avengers #34 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 - 4/5

- 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 - 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 - 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 - 4.6

- On the cover we have Thor, and it combines with the past three issues to create a larger image. The variant cover shows scenes from Bendis' run. I really didn't have a problem with the art, as much as it appeared that the last few pages were a completely different art style, it just found it disconcerting at first. It also seemed at some points they forced sentences into the word bubbles and some words were missing, I had to reread several panels a few times to make sense of what they were trying to say. And my only other gripe was the 3 fan-service pages of the fight between the Avengers and Lord Gouzar, while they were all nicely done by multiple artists, it seemed like filler and could have been dropped to a single page. This issue ties up the End Times Arc for the Avengers. The Avengers are able to defeat Gouzar in the Microverse and bring Wasp back with them. Unfortunately Gouzar tags along and a battle ensues in Central Park. After being quickly defeated Wonder Man takes him back to the Microverse. In the end Tony Stark and Captain America decide the only way to face what's happening it to Go Bigger!
