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! 

Dark Avengers #183 - The End Is The Beginning Review

Dark Avengers #183 Review

Cover - 4/5

- 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 - 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 - 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 - 3.7

- The cover itself is the second half of Dark Avengers #182 - Nothing Stops Justice! and combines to form a larger image. Overall the art, colors and flow of the issue seemed fine but a little rushed. Because of the rushed pace the story doesn't flow as well. It seems all over the place at first. You really don't get a good sense of the issue until the farewells are said. In the end Luke Cage resigns as leader, the Dark Avengers are taken into custody and Man-Thing teleports the Thunderbolts to their ideal locations. The issue ends with Toxic Doxie taking control of Skaar and causes the transport plane to crash in Manhattan. Will be interesting to see how this plays out in Thunderbolts' and Dark Avengers', Marvel NOW! relaunch.
