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: Minutemen #5 Review


Before Watchmen Minutemen #5 Cover
“Why is mommy crying, Uncle Hollis?”

And don’t miss the latest chapter of the “Crimson Corsair” backup feature from writer/artist JOHN HIGGINS!


Cover/Solicit - 3/5

- 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 - 3/5

- Do I personally like this artist's style? Does the artist stay true to the characters appearance?

Colors/Ink/Lettering - 3/5

- 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

- This issue was just average for me, and actually most of the series. The covers for each book is basically a single member of the Minutemen. This issue goes over the final days of the Minutemen and explores Nite Owl's (Mason) book and how it's affected his relationship with the other members. The flow of the book isn't bad considering we flash back and forth between the present day where he is talking to Sally Jupiter and the past where he is still trying to catch the one responsible for killing the children. There is a final mission that involves the Japanese trying to destroy the Statue of Liberty, and when the Minutemen receive no credit and the government covers it up, they decide they aren't appreciated and disband. The issue also explores Mason's dislike for Dr. Manhattan. Overall it has been an OK read and I'll check out the last issue. If your not a huge fan of Watchmen then you might want to just wait for the TPB.
