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!

Batman/Superman #6 - Boss Fight


Throughout the cosmos, one name commands respect and fear above all others. That name is MONGUL, and the world-conquering despot has his eyes set on Earth! And unless Batman and Superman can take down the mad, monstrous might of Mongul, the whole world will suffer!

Rage of Mongul


Batman/Superman #6 came out last week and was a fun read. This is a fast-paced crazy action story by Greg Pak. And that sort of story works well with what artist Brett Booth brings to the table. It is also soaked with a gamer mentality which adds another wrinkle to this story.

I have been intrigued with Pak's approach so far to Superman. The first arc in Batman/Superman was like an art film. The ongoing run in Action Comics is like ... well... like a great action movie. This arc in Batman/Superman is like a cartoon. For that genre, it is a wild entertaining ride. Whether it is violence-spores, or nanobots controlling Batman, or a hive-mind of desensitized gamers working for Mongul, it is an insane mishmash of plot points to justify the brawling.

And yet amid the fantastic brawling, there are still a few character moments that make this meatier than a simple slugfest. In fact, the best moment might be from Jimmy Olsen and the beta-testing gamers.

Add to that the 'wide screen' horizontal layout and Booth adds some wild splash pages and narrow long panels which feed the story.
