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

Red Lanterns #14 - Home is Where the Heart Is Review

Red Lanterns #14 Review

Red Lanterns #14 Cover
“Rise of the Third Army” continues!

Red Lanterns vs. the Third Army! Who is the next Lantern to be converted?

What dark secret lays buried under the surface of Atrocitus’s home planet, Ryutt?

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 - 3/5

- Do I personally like this artist's style? Does the artist stay true to the characters appearance?

Colors/Ink/Lettering - 3/5

- 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 - 3.7

- The cover for this issue is eye catching with Atrocitus fighting The Third Army. The art for me in this issue was just so-so, it seemed rushed and messy. Even the inks and colors suffered. The overall story follows up the events of the last issue with the Red Lantern Corps fighting The Third Army after arriving on the planet to find their newest recruit. Once the battle is completed they take the corpses of The Third Army to recharge the Red Lantern Power Battery. To find out more information about The Third Army, Atrocitus sends his Corps to investigate and sends Rankorr and Bleez to Earth to investigate Stormwatch. The issue's pacing was okay and I feel the story helps tie in to the Rise of the Third Army arc. Even though some of the information is already known, it's nice to see a book not exclude the readers who may not pick up every Green Lantern title.
