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

Ultimate Comics Iron Man #2 Cover

The mystery of ULTIMATE MANDARIN unfolds!

What secret of Tony's has turned WAR MACHINE against him?

Cover/Solicit - 3/5

- 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 - 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 - 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 - 4.1

- Lets start off with saying no Iron Man does not fight War Machine. In-fact we don't see the War Machine armor at all instead we get Rhodes jet. I liked this story and it's fun to see how they are adding Mandarin into the Ultimate Universe. What isn't clear as of yet is if it's just an organization or an individual that the organization is named for. Unlike the last issue I believe this one flowed a little better because we didn't have as many flashbacks. The issue consists of Tony trying to track down the Mandarin to reclaim his stolen tech, but it seems he is just one step behind. As I mentioned we eventually get to see Rhodes as Tony is in need of help, but Rhodes is reluctant to help because Tony is a danger to himself and everyone around him. Unfortunately he might not have a choice as in the final pages it seems the Mandarin has gained control of Stark's drones and has gone on the attack. Definitely worth the read and I can't wait for the actual confrontation of Tony and the Mandarin.
