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

The Savage Hawkman #14 - Hawkman: Wanted, Part Four: Birds of a Feather Review

The Savage Hawkman #14 Review

The Savage Hawkman #14 Cover
The “HAWKMAN: WANTED” epic explodes in this issue!

Continues in this month’s GREEN ARROW #14 as Hawkman and Green Arrow meet for the first time in The New 52!

LADYHAWKE, princess of Thanagar, wants Hawkman dead—and she’s accused him of the murder of her father and brother!

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 - 3/5

- 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 - 3.9

- We have a nice battle cover of Hawkman and Green Arrow fighting some Thanagarian Guards. I really enjoyed the art and coloring of this issue. I did have an problem with this issue like I did with Deathstroke #14 - Hawkman: Wanted, Part 3 of 6 in that I was confused how we were back with Green Arrow after Green Arrow #14 - Hawkman: Wanted, Part Two: Skywar. After reading the issue it becomes a little clearer but this is a big failure on DC's part. They could have done a better job IMO of setting up the issues so it became one fluid read. Even their own solicit seems confused about what's going on and what order to read it in. What we are left with is the issue that continues from Green Arrow #14 and finally concludes with what occurs at the end of Deathstroke #14. Personally I would have made this issue Part 3, remove the elements of Deathstroke and add more content about Green Arrow and Hawkman's interactions, before concluding with Deathstroke and Hawkman's battle. This would have flowed better into Deathstroke's issue and then into Hawkman #15. Overall though it was a good story, and the reason I'm reading Hawkman is because of the crossover with Green Arrow. It will be interesting to see how this are concludes next two issues.
