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!" Gameplay Overview Take on the role of an architect and build your own akropolis in ancient Greece. Try to construct districts of similar buildings and stack them high to increase their value. Add plazas as multipliers for even more points! Each turn, choose an available tile and add it to your city.

Two-Face


I'm a big Two-Face fan. I love what Tomasi did with him during Villains Month, so this is going to be a great issue, right?

How foolish I can be sometimes to think such things.

I tried to enjoy this issue, but I just didn't. It's a slow, overly wordy yarn which slowly takes us nowhere. Other than telling the New 52 version of Two-Face's origin, this entire issue could be skipped without losing much vital information. A group of gangs are bonding together to push out the crazies, this girl who scarred Harvey is leading them and Batman's on the case. Except for the scarring of Harvey, you could give that information in maybe one more page? I can think of almost nothing in these other pages of any entertainment value except for the art which is, as usual, brilliant. However, I can't recommend an issue just based off art.

I'd suggest waiting for the next issue before jumping on to this arc.
