    Admittedly not a ton happens this issue. There’s probably the longest extended sequence painted in “normal” colors, wherein Rook is corned by the hunters. There’s a bit more world-building – we learn that Rook’s mother previously deserted the Circle and appears to have been killed by someone affiliated with it – but not a whole lot else. That sequence’s whole atmosphere gave me Legend of Zelda vibes, for some reason.

That sequence’s whole atmosphere gave me Legend of Zelda vibes, for some reason. Queen Olwyn has some extended one-sided conversations with Pring, who seems to believe that everything is of the same essence, and is looking for some kind of Hegelian synthesis. Olywn is brought to a Moro village(?), where she is clearly venerated on some level. Lotta pseudo-hallucinatory dreams(?) in this issue, so I guess your enjoyment can be predicted based on how high your tolerance was for that seen in Empire Strikes Back when Luke dueled “Vader” on Dagobah. The artwork is, as usual, excellent, with the welcome introduction of a new class of red-eyed beings who seem darker and more menacing than anything we’ve encountered so far.

    Decided to give this one more because one of the creators said it had the best artwork yet and while I kind of agree, I’m also still very frustrated by the storytelling. This gives us a necessary bit of backstory for our leads, but there’s still too much going on in each issue. This needs to slow down and focus on character over world-building for a moment to make us CARE. Not sure I’ll read another issue.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. What is Moro? Who are these people? Are they all like Pring, stitching animals onto themselves? Or are these people actually part animal like the werewolf girl appeared to be? And then why isn't Pring like them? And the fox...is it good? Is it bad? It appeared to be an agent of mischief, showing the dreams of death, but then it led Rook to Moro... So many questions!! Also, seems Rook and Olwyn are a thing? Yay! Also A+ Queen for pushing Pring out of the boat when he got a bit sassy. :D

    The art continues to be gorgeous! And the story is finally starting to fall into place! I think in issue 4 we may actually get the back story, since this issue started to give more backstory. Not sure if the Moro are really good or not, so can't wait to see what happens next.

    The story is getting more complex but at a good rhythm. The art is very good but there were a few panels I didn't enjoy much: the first one, a splash page, is not very interesting. I recommend this series.

    Still enjoying the artwork, and it felt like the story picked back up a bit in this issue, but not sure it's one I plan to continue.
