Hachette Games and Gigamic announced the upcoming tile placement game Akropolis will be coming to the US on July 1st 2022. "Construct the most prestigious Akropolis and develop cohesive districts for your citizens. As you create new buildings, you will expand your city - either spreading out or building up. The higher your stacks of tiles, the more valuable the buildings! Just make sure you don't run out of stone; it's a finite and valuable resource for every architect!" Gameplay Overview Take on the role of an architect and build your own akropolis in ancient Greece. Try to construct districts of similar buildings and stack them high to increase their value. Add plazas as multipliers for even more points! Each turn, choose an available tile and add it to your city.

Early Preview of @ImageComics Murder Me Dead by @DavidALapham


MURDER ME DEAD WEARS NOIR ON ITS SLEEVE

Obsession darkens Lapham’s tale of lust and murder

Hanging from the ceiling fan in her lavish Hollywood home. That’s where Steven Russell finds his estranged wife, Eve Kroft—rich, beautiful, and desperately sad—a tear-stained note in her pocket pouring out years of pain and regret. Is it suicide? The police think so. But his wife’s rich and powerful family is convinced otherwise, and they’ll do everything in their power to make him pay in MURDER ME DEAD, the classic noir graphic novel by David Lapham (STRAY BULLETS), back in print from Image Comics this July.


As a lascivious private detective systematically destroys Steven’s life, a chance meeting with an old friend drives Steven back toward a simpler time—to a downtrodden neighborhood he had long left behind and a fateful reunion with a woman who loved him...

“Murder Me Dead is my modern-day love letter to the great noir films of the 1930s, '40s, and '50s,” said Lapham. “It’s every bit as emotionally twisted as Stray Bullets, but in the guise of a traditional femme fatale noir."

Hailed as a masterful contemporary take on classic noir, MURDER ME DEAD takes its antihero down an ever-darkening road of obsession, sex, betrayal, murder, and dashed hopes. Peeling back the carefully constructed facades of each character, Lapham exposes the true nature of their humanity and propels you toward a final, horrifying revelation.

MURDER ME DEAD will be in comic book stores on July 16 and bookstores on July 29. Sure to enthrall fans of neo-noir, like Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips’ FATALE and Criminal, the black-and-white graphic novel is available for pre-ordered now.
