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

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.
