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!

A MAN AND A PUPPY: IT’S MEANT TO BE IN KINSKI


November graphic novel explores the bond with man’s best friend


A lost black labrador retriever puppy. A lonely traveling salesman named Joe. When they find each other, Joe is convinced they’re a perfect match. But in KINSKI, a graphic novel by Gabriel Hardman (Hulk) coming from Image Comics in November, fate has a way of trying to get in between a man and his would-be best friend. Joe is going to make sure that nothing — not animal control, airline regulations, or an endless RV park — keeps them apart.

While Joe’s behavior in this quirky pursuit story may border on obsessive, KINSKI creator Hardman makes sure his main character’s intentions are pure.



“I think anyone who has adopted a dog, or really any animal, can understand that spark of attachment you feel when you find the right one for you,” said Hardman. “Joe takes that spark of attachment very, very seriously. And sure, he makes some bad decisions, but he genuinely believes what he’s doing is right.”


Originally published as a digital comics series by Monkeybrain Comics, the black-and-white graphic novel is both written and drawn by Hardman, who honed his visual storytelling skills doing storyboards for films like Interstellar, Inception, and The Dark Knight Rises, as well as the comic book Hulk. Hardman relishes the opportunity to draw his own story.

“In Kinski, I get the chance to express those ideas in their purest form,” he said. “Since I’m writing and drawing, every element is integrated together from moment one. Artists and writers in comics now are so rigidly segregated but I don’t think a book like Kinski could be made that way. Here I’m determined to let the visuals tell the story and reveal character just as much as the dialogue.”

The face of an adorable puppy will grace shelves in November, when KINSKI arrives in comic books tores on November 5 and bookstores on November 18.
