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! 

Wolverine #316 - Covenant, Part 3 Review

Wolverine #316 Review


Wolverine and Elsa Bloodstone discover the Floating Castle!

With the Covenant hot on their trail, can Wolverine keep the Deaming Maiden alive? Or will Elsa betray him?

Meanwhile, Melita makes a discovery that will change Wolverine – and her – forever!

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 - 3/5

- 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 - 4/5

- 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

- If I wasn't already reading Wolverine this cover wouldn't really entice me to me want to pick it up.  While the cover is nice I don't care for it that much. The art in this book goes from one extreme to another, while a lot of it looks perfectly fine, I can't get over Wolverine drawn with a huge face and nose. It almost looks like they drew him like a neanderthal. The Wolverine comics have been on an odd run lately, the stories are convoluted and out there. I enjoy a non-super book and for example Hawkeye #4 - The Tape, 1 of 2 was great, and I have even enjoyed some of Wolverines' other solo stories, so far this one has just been so-so. We continue the story from last issue of the Dreaming Maiden and Logan trying to find her. We also have Melita Garner teaming up with the Angels (a group of Wolverine's exes) to help rescue him. The issue has it's moments but overall it was just OK. This arc is almost over and hopefully we will get something better in Marvel NOW!
