Wacky Wizard Games Imprint and Three New Games Announced by @wwizardgames

Wise Wizard Games announced the launch of Wacky Wizard Games, a new brand imprint focused on family-friendly, lightweight games. Three games are planned for release in 2024 as part of this new brand imprint: Star Realms Academy, Caution Signs, and Pack the Essentials. If you are interested and attending PAX Unplugged they will have prototypes of Caution Signs and Pack the Essentials. "We are super excited to be adding this new family friendly product line to our catalog. We wanted to maintain the focus of Wise Wizard Games on strategy card and dice games with geeky themes, and have created Wacky Wizard Games as an umbrella for lightweight games with a more whimsical, cute vibe," shared Debbie Moynihan, COO of Wise Wizard Games. Star Realms Academy Forge your own star realms, overloaded with cuteness! A kid friendly but still fun for grown-ups version of the popular Star Realms deckbuilding game for 2 players. A little less math, no reading necessary, but still tons of fun! 

Venom #27.1 - The Evil Inside Us All... Review

Venom #27.1 Review

Venom #27.1 Cover

The wounds of Carnage still fresh, Flash Thompson confronts his past as a bully - and makes a momentous decision about his future!

Thony Silas returns with Cullen Bunn to Venom!

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 - 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 - 3/5

- 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 - 3.3

- I'm not really into this cover, it's a combination of the art and the pose. Something that could have made the cover really nice is if Flash Thompson's shadow as Venom instead to go with the title "The Evil Inside Us All". Luckily the art in the issue was well done and makes up for the cover art. Being a .1 issue I feel they did an OK job of conveying the recent events, but more could have been explored. I am however confused as to when the events of this issue took place due to Hellstorm being in The Raft, and the events in New Avengers. Their really wasn't much to the story, we find Flash in conflict with the Venom symbiote while also trying to figure out what is to become from his deal with the Satan from the Circle of Four arc. In the final pages we do get a lead-in to the upcoming issues with Flash seemingly not always in control of his own body, and that he decides to leave New York. I really enjoyed Venom up to now and this was a so-so issue, here's hoping the next story arc will be great.
