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 X-Men #19 - Reservation X; Part 1 Review

Ultimate Comics X-Men #19 Review

Ultimate Comics X-Men #19 CoverAn All-New direction for the Ultimate X-Men!

Kitty tries to lead a new nation of mutants but someone close to her has different plans!

Brian (DMZ, STAR WARS, X-MEN) Wood's epic RESERVATION X arc begins here!

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 - 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 - 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 - 4.4

- This issue follows the events from Ultimate Comics X-Men #18.1 - Point One. While the cover is interesting if it wasn't and X-Men book or an Ultimate book I probably would skip over it. I'm really glad we have a new artist on this issue. If you read my review of #18.1 you will know how much I disliked the previous artist. This issue is pretty simple and not much happens. It involves Kitty Pryde and the other mutants that didn't take the cure, starting their life in the Utah desert at the Utopia Reservation. The issue also sees Mach Two (Nomi) trying to pressure Kitty into fighting, and has the others vote who should lead them. I like that this issue is pretty easy to follow so new readers should be able to jump on and understand the basics. I can't wait to see the elements that were revealed like Karen Grant (Jean Grey) on the final page, and the hint at who Nomi might actually be.
