Steamforged Games, leading UK tabletop games developer and publisher (Monster Hunter World: The Board Game, DARK SOULS: The Board Game , Horizon Zero Dawn: The Board Game , Bardsung , Epic Encounters , and more) announce acquisition of the Euthia IP and a partnership with Czech studio, Diea Games, to resurrect the Euthia board game crowdfunding campaign that was cancelled in May  this year after raising over half a million dollars in just two days.  Euthia, rated 8.8 on BoardGameGeek and currently out-of-print, is an open-world fantasy sandbox RPG board game that initially ran on Kickstarter in 2020 and was well-received by the public.

Superior Spider-Man Team-Up #8 - Failure To Reform!


After the events of the Superior Six, the Superior Spider-Man faces off with an even deadlier foe: SELF-DOUBT.

Has the Superior Spider-Man been humbled? How can he come back from this?

With the help of a guest-star even more arrogant than Spider-Man... THE SUB-MARINER!

The Sub-Mariner

This was okay. I mean Namor isn't a favorite of mine but it was interesting to see Ock deal with the same doubts that Peter often did.

I have no idea where this war is taking place since I don’t think Namor or Panther have a solo book now (plus aren’t they teammates in New Avengers?), but I don’t care either. Although I will call it now that clearly Dr. Doom is the one manipulating the war since he has a lot of history with Namor and I’m fairly sure there was some limited series a few years ago where Latveria went to war with Wakanda; plus Ock said he had never seen technology this advanced when he deactivated the robots which is a dead-ringer for Doom.

My biggest quibble with this book is the cover has nothing to do with the story. It’s a nice cover too. But if someone bought this book because they wanted to see Spidey and Namor fight a red kraken they’d be sorely disappointed. I know in this day and age most covers are just generic pin-ups of the hero, but this goes a step further in that the cover is kind of misleading. Just my 2-cents and something that would have annoyed me if I had impulse bought this book based on the cover; which is not a totally unprecedented shopping decision.
