HeroClix_LogoThis news has been on a bit of a slow roll, but I  think the below picture pretty much sums up the current state of WizKids…

WizKids is back.  Now, they did have a tiny little endcap “booth” in the back of the vendor area…which for me pretty much confirms my suspicions that this was a last minute deal to get a presence at GenCon…and that’s fine.  The guys I spoke with at the booth described the whole thing as “a little more guierrella than they had planned”…but here’s the thing…WizKids now gets to be the scrappy little upstart gaming company again it looks like.  They did pretty well for themselves last time they took that roll, so I’m very interested to see what they can do with it.  Confirmation of the next two sets was given, Hammer of Thor (Marvel) in the fall/winter, Brave and the Bold (DC) early next year.
