If you’re on Issue #5, I assume you know that the story and art are pretty great. Duom is deep under the spell of the sword; she had often become almost possessed. She has done some pretty rough stuff, and now that Dad is there, I wondered what he had in mind . . . and based on what happened in #4, I expected it to be not very nice. Was I disappointed?
Actually, without me spoiling anything, I’ll tell you this: you get a much deeper glimpse of his character in this comic, and the story finally starts to expand to include a “where is this going” answer. So, in essence, this comic is a bit twistier/suprisier/more illuminating (illuminiar?) than the last 4 issues. Also, the issue has quite a bit more “story” and slightly less spreads of climbing mountains and killing orcs – so more stuff gets done.
Should you read it? Well, you’ve already read Issues #1 through #4, so it’s probably a given that you’ll buy it and read it. The good news is that #5 is where the story gets deeper and the comic a little less one dimensional, so, of course, you should read it – and you’ll like it. I loved it.
If by some off chance you haven’t read #1 through #4, read ‘em! This is not a comic for D&D nerds – it’s a cool story, great art, and dark, dark dark!
Just the way I like it.
