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! 

Before Watchmen: Comedian #4 - Conquistador Review

Before Watchmen: Comedian #4 Review


Before Watchmen Comedian #4 Cover
“All I could see was red. Then I saw the white and the blue. And the pinko.”

And don’t miss the latest sensational chapter of the CRIMSON CORSAIR, from writer and artist JOHN HIGGINS.

Cover/Solicit - 2/5

- Would I pick-up the comic based on the solicit/cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the solicit/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 - 4/5

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



Verdict - 3.1

- I really don't like this cover, I'm not sure if it's the art, or the attempt at photo realism, or the subject matter. The art for the issue is the same as the last and looks pretty good. My biggest gripe with the issue is a combination of the story and the pacing. I'm just not into the story even from the first issue. What makes it worse in this issue is the bouncing around. We start in the present, then bounce to 23 hrs ago, then I think back to the present, then I'm confused because we are in a helicopter with John F. Kennedy. At the end of the issue we see The Comedian taking some drugs and jumping head first back into battle, or was that before he took the drugs... I'm so confused. Again I didn't read the Crimson Corsair so can't really tell you much about it.
