Akropolis by Gigamic and Hachette BoardGames Coming Soon

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!"

Add plazas as multipliers for even more points! Each turn, choose an available tile and add it to your city.

Red Hood and the Outlaws #24 - Shakedown

Jason Todd now leads the League of Assassins against the Untitled and his former teammates. But the true power is within the Lazarus Pit in the City of Assassins. What will it unleash?


League of Assassins

I hate to say this because James Tynion IV follows me on Twitter and has always been friendly to me, so I'm just going to hope he doesn't read this one. However, I have to be honest with these reviews, and I hate this series since he took it over. It was with a profound sense of obligation that I read this the other day, and I disliked the process from beginning to end.

Look, the entire All Caste/Untitled mythology is an ill defined mess. I have no idea what these baddies can even do or why they do it, so the fight which makes up a good part of the issue is completely boring. Nothing interesting has been done with Jason's since the mind wipe. He just seems like a little kid unsure of what to do and basically directionless. Roy, who I used to like, has become annoyingly whiny. Starfire has been even further relegated to the position of eye candy. The art is not great though I will give props that it seems to have improved over the last several issues. The reveal at the end was seen by everybody from fifty miles away.

Mostly, things just happen in this arc. To be fair, it's occasionally a cool thing that just happens, but it seems kind of like when I was a kid and would get every single action figure out and make up stuff as I went along. There are some cool things, but mostly, it's shallow chaos.

I love you James! Keep up the great work on everything else!
