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

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!
