District Noir by Pandasaurus Games Coming Soon

Pandasaurus has announced a new 2 player set collection game District Noir is coming this summer. Preorders will start on May 19th with retail release planned for July 19th. District Noir was originally published in Japanese by Taikikennai Games in 2016 as Throne and Grail. It was then published in 2019 as Chocolate Factory by Nasza Księgarnia in Polish. The current art and theme was published last year in French by Spiral Éditions. When the time is right, gain control! At the head of the city’s largest criminal organizations, men and women fight to control territories and gain support by trying every means possible to grow their influence. Control of the District Noir, a central and highly contested area, remains the major issue that will make all the difference in dominating the city. There are two paths to victory: win over District Noir's various supports, or directly control the city’s three strategic locations. Before players can claim these, they must be played to the center

Before Watchmen: Ozymandias #4 Review

“It was somebody tidying up loose ends...”

Plus, writer/artist JOHN HIGGINS brings you the latest chapter in saga of the CRIMSON CORSAIR!

Cover/Solicit - 4/5

- 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 - 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 - 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 - 4/5

- 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 - 4.3

- I never had the chance to read Watchmen when it was released but enjoyed the Watchmen movie. This series of Before Watchmen has been up and down for me. Note: I don't read the Crimson Corsair stories so will not include them in my review. Unlike the other Before Watchmen comics this one seems a little long winded. Not that its a bad thing, but it can get a little wordy. Overall I enjoyed this issue and the artistic style is fitting for the more dignified Ozymandias. This issue has Ozymandias retelling the events of the 60's up until the formation of The Crimebusters. It's a good read but nothing really important happens in the issue. At the end of the issue Ozymandias states that he will have to solve crime alone foreshadowing future events, and hopefully they will touch on them before the end.
