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

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 - 2/5

- 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 - 2.9

- I had high hopes for this series as I loved the Age of Apocalypse story arc in the 90s, but lets say I'm not impressed. The issue suffers from being too "dark" in both the colors and in the story itself. I understand the gritty feel they are going for but the combination of the art and the dark colors makes the story really hard for me to follow. I guess I'm living the glory days for Joe Madureira and the vibrant colors used in the 90s. This issue continues well, I'm not sure. I want to think the X-Terminated are trying to free humans from Weapon Omega's rule, but then again it's the mutant factor that confuses me a little. I understand the mutants are against Apocalypse in any form, but I'm not sure how they are aligned. It also seems as even though X-Terminated use mutants, they are actually using them. In this issue they had no problems sacrificing their ex-mutant team members, Sabretooth and Jean Grey. I'm holding out for the upcoming crossover and hopefully things get better.
