Wacky Wizard Games Imprint and Three New Games Announced by @wwizardgames

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! 

Cyber Force #2 Review

Cyber Force #2 Review

Cyber Force #2 Cover

For the first time in history, mankind is outpacing evolution. It takes nature thousands of years to adapt to changes and the things humanity has accomplished technologically in just the past 100 years has thrown its ability to evolve, and in turn survive, completely out of whack. In other words, a world full of wonders and conveniences is being created that none will hope to survive. This dilemma is at the heart of what CYBER FORCE is all about.

The massive corporation CDI continues to engineer technologically enhanced humans. Cyber Force, terrorists or resistance fighters depending on your point of view, try and regroup and reveal the conspiracy that is behind the heart of CDI and its mission. Aphrodite V and Stryker make their debut!

Cover/Solicit - 5/5

- 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 - 4.4

- I decided to give this series a try even though I never read the original Cyber Force series, and who can pass up FREE. Top Cow is providing the first five issues at no cost due to their Kickstarter Funded project. I really like the uniqueness of each of the covers and would pick it up even w/o the $0.00 price tag. I'm digging the art style in this book as well, while normally it probably wouldn't' work for say a book like Avengers or Superman, it looks and feels right for a techno book. I did have a few issues with time placement of the book, I'm not sure if this is supposed to take place in a future timeline or just an alternate current timeline. Some of the references they make about McDonald's and Smartphones makes it seem like the latter. This issue rewinds a little bit from the last issue, to show the events that lead to the killing of the members left at the camp while Ripclaw goes in search of Velocity. After the death of Cyblade and his son, Ripclaw decides the only way to combat them is to find Stryker and face them head on. I'm intrigued at this reboot and found it reader friendly for those who know nothing about the previous books. If FREE doesn't make you want to download the issues, hopefully my review will.
