Sentinels of the Multiverse Wrath of the CosmosJust as the title advertises, Sentinels of the Multiverse expands into the far reaches of the galaxy with its newest expansion.  Wrath of the Cosmos is another expansion for the highly popular superhero cooperative card game, coming with two new space-based heroes, four galactic-level baddies, and environments where no one can hear you scream.  Arcadia Quest Super Dungeon

From the company behind Super Dungeon Explorer comes another dungeon crawler with an anime flare!  Arcadia Quest pits guilds of explorers against each other as they traverse the lair of the vampire lord.  Each guild is tasked to complete various scenarios, only moving onward when they have been accomplished.  However, guilds can mess with each other in an attempt to deter opponents.

Camel Up CupA rare two to eight player game, Camel Up is a bidding and dice rolling game centered around a pack of racing camels.  Five camels race around a pyramid while players roll dice to determine the amount of spaces each camel moves.  In between dice rolls, players can bet on their favored camel, earning more points at the end of the game based on how early they placed their bet.  But beware, the camels have a few tricks up their sleeves, including jumping on top of each other. Doomtown New Town New Rules

Ole Doomtown‘s fillin’ up mighty quickly, pardner.  The newly remade Doomtown:  Reloaded card game receives its second expansion decks this weekend.  Following up on New Town, New Rules, Double Dealin’ explores the fallout of Gomorrah’s first mayoral election with four copies of twenty-one new cards that can be incorporated into the base game.

Roll for the GalaxyIf you can’t tell from the title, Roll for the Galaxy is Rio Grande Games‘ dice variation on the popular Race for the Galaxy card game series.  Roll for the Galaxy uses dice to represent interplanetary settlers as the populated local star systems.  Two to five players will roll their dice in an attempt to manage their settlers in relation to technology and other resources, hopefully coming out on top.Firefly Blue Sun expansion board game

The Verse is a big place and Firefly:  The Game – Blue Sun aims to explore it.  This third expansion for the board game based off of the cult favorite series provides a board extension called The Rim.  This dangerous edge of the galaxy is rough terrain, but comes populated with new missions, crew opportunities, and a new supply planet for players to misbehave in.  And, of course, a new nav deck steers your ship through all of this Reaver populated Dungeon Master's Screen D&D Next 5.0 Dragonsterritory.

Since Gale Force Nine had difficulty keeping their D&D Next/5.0 Dungeon Master‘s screen in print, Wizards of the Coast stepped in and made one themselves.  Frankly, there’s is better.  A four panel, fold-out screen, this hard cardstock accessory provides all of the essential stats and tips a game master needs to keep his players spellbound and struggling along.Star Realms Crisis booster expansion

Following in the footsteps of Steve Jackson‘s Munchkin series, Star Realms (the exponentially expandable deck building game) receives four new, non-randomized booster pack expansions this week.  Each of these four packs can be incorporated into any amount of the base game.  Star Realms:  Crisis – Bases & Battleships includes a new ship for each faction as well as eight additional ships.  Star Realms:  Crisis – Heroes provide an entirely new card type called the Hero.  Star Realms:  Crisis – Fleets & Fortresses contains a new base for each faction, plus eight new ships.  And, finally, Star Realms:  Crisis – Events also adds a new card type called Events.

Take your wallet out of your pocket. Look at it. Compare it to the picture on the left. Now cry.

Don’t worry, I’m crying, too.

But there’s no reason to be crying after Wednesday, because that Batman Wallet ships along with many other Super Wallet options. For instance, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and more. Trust me, no will ever mug you with a wallet like this.

And when your money is carried in a wallet like the above it’s going to beg to be spent on a Batman comic. Luckily, a new miniseries called Batman: Arkham Unhinged launches this week. Tying into last year’s extremely successful Arkham City game, this miniseries will follow events leading up to the game’s storyline, focusing on Two-Face and Catwoman‘s rivalry.

Did you see who got voted off last night?

Probably not, because America’s newest popular reality show hasn’t launched yet.

But it does this Wednesday.

America’s Got Powers is a new creator-owned series from Jonathon Ross and Bryan Hitch (Ultimates, The Authority) that takes full advantage of America’s fascination with reality television and applies it to the superhero genre. Think The Hunger Games meets Running Man meets Survivor meets Teen Titans. Hundreds of teenage super powered kids will compete. One will win. All will cause property damage. Judging from the last couple of Image miniseries, this is a book you’ll want to pick up quick, because they will be gone soon after their release.

There has been a vast influx of horror comics over the last year, but none have been better than Scott Snyder’s Severed. A period book set during the Great Depression, Severed follows a young, musically-inclined boy who’s taken to the open road in search of his father. Along the way he runs into some very, very bad people. If you’ve been reading Swamp Thing or Batman by Scott Snyder, you understand how well Scott Snyder can write horror, as he posses a unique talent for pacing scares on the page. Back that up with extremely expressive artwork from Attilla Futaki and you’ve got the spookiest book of 2011.

Monster hunting can be a messy business. All sorts of fluids and grisley bits. Find out just how messy in the new Dark Horse miniseries, Alabaster Wolves. Based off of Catilin R. Kiernan’s best selling fantasy series, Alabaster Wolves stars a young girl named Dancy Flammarion who’s hunted creepy crawlies since she could walk. But she’s about to meet her match. Fans of Whiteout will be happy to see Steve Leiber’s gorgeous artwork return to comic pages, especially with a series that contains so much vivid imagery. Add to that the gorgeous painterly covers and you’ve got the whole package.

Finally, with so much horror and spookieness going about it’s only proper to end on a like-minded book for youngsters. Oni Press, after garner much acclaim for previous series, is launching an ongoing, color series for Courtney Crumrin. If you’re unfamiliar, Courtney’s adventures involve the dark, demonic, and nasty things of the world, making for a young readers book with a bit of bite to it. These new color issues look amazing and continue the series beloved by many. If you like the Series of Unfortunate Events novels, you’ll fall right into step with Courtney Crumrin.
