Wacky Wizard Games Imprint and Three New Games Announced by @wwizardgames

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! 

Featured Review: @TopCow Bushido #2 @ImageComics @RobLevin

Bushido #2 (of 5)


Only Kichiro knows the true scope of the bloody threat that faces feudal Japan - but nobody will believe him. With the recent slaying of his father, and his brother Orochi consumed with his impending marriage to the Shogun's daughter, Kichiro may be confined to a prison cell when the vampire onslaught begins.

Cover & Solicit 5/5

Once again we are treated to a beautiful cover drawn by the extremely talented Jessada Sutthi of Studio HIVE who also does the art for the issue.

Art, Colors & Inking 5/5

As I mentioned in my review for Bushido #1, the art that Jessada produces is extremely well done and a treat to the eyes. He gives each page excellent attention to detail and makes the book almost come alive in your hands.

Layout & Flow 5/5

The book had a very good flow to it. Rob Levin does a great job of telling the story without all the extra filler. The flow from image to image and page to page is excellently done due to both Jessada's art and the flow of dialogue and monologue that Levin provides for the story. Monologue and inner thoughts are some of my pet peeves, I hate when books use this as a way to tell extra story instead of letting the imagery and interactions between characters should be the forefront. Luckily Levin doesn't fall into this and lets the book tell the story not by Kichiro's inner thoughts.

Story 5/5

The issue is again written by Rob Levin (Mind the Gap, Witchblade, Darkness) who does an excellent job telling the story. We continue the story from last issue where Kichiro is accused by his brother Orochi for killing his father. Unable to accept the fate that will befall him, his lover and soon to be wife or Orochi, Mitsuko helps him escape. We then find Kichiro escaping and fighting off more of these "creatures" all the while his brother Orochi is hunting him down. When his brother and coming face to face with their fathers real killer, it doesn't phase Orochi as he still blames Kichiro. At the end of the issue we get ready for the wedding of Mitsuko and Orochi, but something sinister waits outside. Again we are lead on an exciting adventure that I just couldn't put down. One thing I hope Rob does in the next issue is flesh out the Vampires, a who are they and why are they here in Japan. I can't wait until next week, as I was done the final page I wanted the next issue to already be out.
