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!

Logan and Kitty's road trip heads north - to the grounds of the former Howlett estate!

But more than bittersweet memories are waiting for Logan in the place he once called home.

The ghosts of Logan's Canadian childhood meet the demons of his adulthood as he continues to grapple with his new reality!

Going Home


This series has been very inconsistent since it started, and although Killable has shown some promise, it has yet to pay off on that promise. I do however still have hope in the series, but unless the series gets a lot better soon I may start to loose some of that hope.

Plot

Wolverine and Kitty take a trip to the Howlett estate in Canada.

Review

This was a good issue, but if I'm being honest I was rather disappointed, as after the small improvements the series has been making, it is sad to see it take a backwards step. Paul Cornell is really trying my patients with this story, as although I have all the respect for his writing skills, he has been very inconsistent with this series. Cornell did however do a great job of getting into Wolverine's state of mind, adding fantastic tone and mood to the issue, as well as setting up his next encounter brilliantly. In saying that I personally would still have rather seen more action and excitement in this issue, and if not something that was really shocking, which we didn't get.

The artwork in this issue was however phenomenal, and Alan Davis' art has easily been the best thing about this storyline so far. The detail in Davis' art is simply amazing, as although there are very minor imperfections, he makes up for that throughout the rest of the issue. The issue also had some fantastic layouts from Davis, with it adding a lot of depth and tone to the issue. I especially loved one panel in particular, that showed Wolverine's silhouette with just the whites of his eyes and teeth showing through. Davis also did a fabulous job of showing the characters expressions throughout this issue, as it added a lot of depth, and helped to liven it up during the slower sequences.
