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

Supergirl #14 - Lost Son of Krypton Review

Supergirl #14 Review

Supergirl #14 Cover
A “H’ELL ON EARTH” crossover chapter!

Picking up from SUPERBOY #14, Supergirl meets the villainous H’el!

What happens when she finds herself agreeing with his pro-Krypton/anti-Earth plans?

Continued this month in SUPERMAN #14!

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 - 4/5

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

Colors/Ink/Lettering - 4/5

- 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 - 5/5

- 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 really enjoyed this issues cover, my only gripe is Superboy's face, and the fact that the events never take place. Overall the art and flow of the issue work well, and even with all the location jumps you really don't get lost. The issue continues the H'el on Earth crossover that started in Superman #13 - They Will Join You In The Sun... and continued in Superboy #14 - The Face of H'el. If you haven't read those issues you might feel a little lost at first. Otherwise this is a great tie-in to the story arc where H'el tries to convince Supergirl to join him so the last of the House of El can be united. In the end Kara has to think about it and wants to ask her cousin Kal El (Superman) first. As a parting gift H'el gives her the ability to understand English. The issue ends with Kara discovering that Kal has a secret, "Clark Kent".
