Steamforged Games, leading UK tabletop games developer and publisher (Monster Hunter World: The Board Game, DARK SOULS: The Board Game , Horizon Zero Dawn: The Board Game , Bardsung , Epic Encounters , and more) announce acquisition of the Euthia IP and a partnership with Czech studio, Diea Games, to resurrect the Euthia board game crowdfunding campaign that was cancelled in May  this year after raising over half a million dollars in just two days.  Euthia, rated 8.8 on BoardGameGeek and currently out-of-print, is an open-world fantasy sandbox RPG board game that initially ran on Kickstarter in 2020 and was well-received by the public.

Captain Marvel #7 Review

Captain Marvel #7 Review

Cover - 3/5

- 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 - 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 - 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 - 4.1

- From the cover it appears that Captain Marvel (Danvers) is going to go up against a new foe, but that is not the case. I'm not sure what they were thinking but this cover has nothing to do with the issue. To compound matters the art on the cover is actually not as good as the interior. While I'm not always a fan of the painted art style this is one of the better ones. I was highly skeptical about the issue when I first started reading it. It starts out slow with Danvers helping Monica Rambeau with a deep water exploration. It seems ships and planes are wrecked here similar to the Bermuda Triangle. The whole issue is pretty uneventful until the final sequences where some entity takes control of the wreckage and forms and behemoth from them. I'm not sure what I was looking for in the issue, it's a change of pace from Captain Marvel, Vol. 1: In Pursuit of Flight that involved Time Travel but it might take another issue to get me interested in it. Like other individual Marvel series it appears that they are trying to keep the team aspect out of the issues for now, and this can be a good thing as it leads to better character development Will have to see the next issue to see how things play out.
