District Noir by Pandasaurus Games Coming Soon

Pandasaurus has announced a new 2 player set collection game District Noir is coming this summer. Preorders will start on May 19th with retail release planned for July 19th. District Noir was originally published in Japanese by Taikikennai Games in 2016 as Throne and Grail. It was then published in 2019 as Chocolate Factory by Nasza Księgarnia in Polish. The current art and theme was published last year in French by Spiral Éditions. When the time is right, gain control! At the head of the city’s largest criminal organizations, men and women fight to control territories and gain support by trying every means possible to grow their influence. Control of the District Noir, a central and highly contested area, remains the major issue that will make all the difference in dominating the city. There are two paths to victory: win over District Noir's various supports, or directly control the city’s three strategic locations. Before players can claim these, they must be played to the center

The Indigo Tribe Reviews @DCComics Larfleeze #6

Here is today's Guest Review by LiquidCross from The Indigo Tribe for DC Comics' Larfleeze #6. I have also added my rating after each review. If you have any questions about my rating or want to discuss anything just leave me a comment.

Larfleeze #6 - The Orange God!

Now that Larfleeze is a living power battery, how will his former corps recharge its rings! The Orange Lanterns are prepared to pry open Agent Orange to find out!


Orange Lanterns on a Rampage!

As the Orange Lanterns continually argue over how to deal with their captive Larfleeze, the living power battery himself has visions of what appears to be his mother. She explains that his memory is a mess due to billions of years of abusing the orange light, but she also tells him that the light is truly his. Those freed Orange Lanterns are still his property, since he’s the one who created their rings in the first place. With this, Larfleeze awakens in a furious rage, and easily retakes their rings and his own. The Orange Lanterns would prefer death to enslavement, but Larfleeze will give them neither: he maroons them on their planetoid to slowly waste away, and sets off to rebuild his Corps. Meanwhile, the Wanderer and Stargrave locate the Council of Ten, and plan to infiltrate their footsoldiers.

I was very surprised at how good this issue was. Nearly all of the comedy is gone, and Larfleeze’s proper origin as a native of Ogatoo is restored. We also finally find out where this story takes place in the timeline; it’s a few months after Larfleeze’s invasion of Oa. (Which technically would place it in the near future, but that’s fine.)

I’m wondering if these critical story points were finally addressed due to editors stepping in. If true, this would be one of the few times where editorial interference was beneficial! More to the point, this would be an example of editors doing their job correctly; that is, finding and correcting errors instead of massively changing the stories to fit sales projections, personal preferences, and the like. But that’s all idle speculation on my part.
