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 Transformers: Robots in Disguise #11 Review

CYBERTRON IS ABOUT TO EXPLODE! Tensions ratchet up between AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS as violence breaks out in the heart of the city… and PROWL looks for someone to blame. Is DIRGE a convenient target-or the key to what comes next? Plus an old "friend" comes back home.

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 - 5/5

- 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 - 5

- What can I say this probably my favorite IDW Transformers series out of the three. Regeneration One I believe suffers from what I'll call nostalgia, it was good in the 80's and doesn't  necessarily translate well now, and More than Meets the Eye's writing during the last story arc was just confusing. For this issue I love the cover art, especially the one of Arcee. The art in this issue is also superior to that in MTMTE. Overall this issue worked for me, it continues Bumblebee's leadership on Cybertron and Starscream's dreams of power after being informed by a Metrotitan that he will be the Transformers savior. We discover in the issue that while some Decepticons are playing ball and keeping the peace, Shockwave, Soundwave and a few others are causing problems. Prowl once again has to go behind Bumblebee's back and conspires with Starscream to send Arcee on another assassination mission. This was a great story and worth reading. I can't wait for next month's with the return of Megatron.
