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

X-Treme X-Men #7 - You Can't Go Home Again, Part 2 Review

X-Treme X-Men #7 Review

X-Treme X-Men #7 Cover
If the team can't defeat the Xavier from the United States of California...what will happen to Nightcrawler?

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 - 2/5

- 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 - 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 - 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 - 3.4

- I'm not a fan of this cover, Dazzler looks strange and have no idea who that is behind her, it almost looks like Nightcrawler, but it's probably Sage. Also I have no idea what the solicit is talking about this story arc has had nothing to do with an evil Xavier it deals with Danger. Again like X-Treme X-Men #6 - You Can't Go Home Again, Part 1 the art had that Æon Flux feel, but worse. And while I like Æon Flux I just can't get into it in the comic. I mean one scene it looks like Dazzler is normal and the next she looks anorexic. Art aside I have been enjoying this series as a whole. This issue concludes the arc with Kurt returning to his universe that was taken over by robots. I didn't really care for how the issue ended, and the final scenes with Kurt had me confused, at first it seemed like he was giving us an evil laugh, but then we see him being coddled and crying. I'm excited to see the next issue where Xavier Head has recruited a new team to help him comes face to face with the existing one.
