WARNING: This is no longer a (FINGER QUOTES) “fun” comic. Now that the Sect Civil War has begun, it is now a (FINGER QUOTES) “grim” and (FINGER QUOTES) “gritty” work of (REAL QUOTES) “sequential literature” with blood and headshots and naughty words (like “H-E-DOUBLE-HOCKEY-STICKS”) and if you squint real hard at the backgrounds, maybe boobies. In this particular issue that will change the Valiant Universe forever*, the man now calling himself Dark Archer (NOTE TONAL SHIFT) must find his former partner Armstrong so they can reunite to stop the aforementioned Sect Civil War. And there are almost no fart jokes. Okay, one. (* FOREVER = APPROX. 20 MINUTES)
This continues to be one of the most fun regular titles I’m reading. A pub crawl through time! With two immortals! We get a good look at Armstrong’s thoughts and motivations here, and it gets the two together after they ‘fell out’
We get a look into the sect war and other’s reactions to it – albeit a bit briefly, but it works well in small doses! The sects are excellent and I look forward to seeing them in future issues!
The finish is a happy/sad situation, but it sets us up for the future.
Oh yes, I’m going to keep reading this!
