Hachette Games and Gigamic announced the upcoming tile placement game Akropolis will be coming to the US on July 1st 2022. "Construct the most prestigious Akropolis and develop cohesive districts for your citizens. As you create new buildings, you will expand your city - either spreading out or building up. The higher your stacks of tiles, the more valuable the buildings! Just make sure you don't run out of stone; it's a finite and valuable resource for every architect!"

X-Men: Legacy #1 - Prodigal Review

X-Men Legacy #1 Review


Cover - 4/5

- Would I pick-up the comic based on the cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the 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 - 3/5

- 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 - 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 - 3.7

- While there is nothing special about the covers, who can say no to a Skottie Young cover. While the art didn't impress me it wasn't bad, I did however have issues with some of the coloring and inking, and for whatever reason they used some strange lettering while in Legion's head. This brings me to my next point, they jump right in feet first and you have no idea where you are. It actually doesn't become clear what is happening at the start of the issue until almost 75% thru it. The first issue to me was kinda confusing throughout, first we have Legion in the Himalayas and just the explanation that his father Professor X put him there because he had to deal with something (Avengers vs. X-Men). The odd thing is the last time I recall seeing Legion was after Second Coming. My only assumption is Charles was afraid Phoenix Force would try to take Legion as a host. The story bounces back and forth between Legion learning to control himself and his mindscape. At first this is very confusing and you have no idea what's going on, but like I mentioned you eventually find out. I assume this issue is taking place around the time of Avengers Vs. X-Men #11 - Round 11 because when Legion senses Charles die he loses control. While not a fan yet, I'm sure this will become a good book. It just takes time to get used to a writer sometimes, and it's a completely new and different take on an X-book.
