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!

Difference of Opinions


Since it started Guardians of the Galaxy has been a very fun and enjoyable series, as although it has been slightly inconsistent at times it is usually very entertaining, and has turned me into a fan of it's characters. I have however of late been really looking forward to it's part in Infinity, especially considering Thanos has appeared in this series for different reasons as of late.

Plot

As Thanos' army is invading the Earth the Guardians of the Galaxy get a distress call from Abigail Brand.

Review

This was a brilliant issue, as although the star wasn't very new reader friendly, it would soon become a very exciting issue that was very entertaining. Brian Michael Bendis has been doing a fantastic job with this series, and he continues that here, as he managed to give some very interesting developments, whilst making it fit into the Infinity event in a very unique, but fitting way. The issue would also flow very smoothly, being brilliantly paced, also being very dramatic and suspenseful at times. The dialogue would also once again be outstanding, adding the perfect tone to the issue, and I especially enjoyed that Bendis addressed the "Blam! I just murdered you!" catchphrase of Rocker Raccoon.

I wasn't too sure what to make of the artwork in this issue, as although I usually really enjoy Francesco Francavilla's artwork, it didn't really fit this series. The detail throughout his artwork would also be a bit inconsistent, as although there would be some highly detailed sequences, there were some rough panels that were a bit jarring. I did however love the layout from Francavilla, and I loved the space sequences, feeling that they were very dynamic, having a lot of tone. I also loved the action sequences in this issue, as Francavilla would make them very exciting and explosive, with the layouts helping with the flow of the sequences.
