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!

Weapon Omega knows he can kill Jean Grey...

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.
