The Myros Comet passes overhead, setting the night ablaze, a spark to a tinderbox of political forces vying for its power. As the first flames of conflict begin to lick at their heels, our heroes, led by the infamous Stilian ‘Blackheart’ Desault, find themselves on the smuggler’s isle of Rekik. And, for all their efforts at keeping their heads low, trouble seems to have a knack of tightening the noose around their necks.

We get a well written introduction, which really gives us the epic feel to it all, this really puts us into the mood for the story to come. This is helpful to any new readers out there!
The initial appearance of the comic is not only well told, but also well shown with a magnificent piece showing the escape from and the destruction caused by the comet – wow!
What follows gives us the feel of an epic adventure, with small amounts of action (not too much yet!) the key characters and what’s happening. It’s not only artfully told, but so well presented. With some amazing art and colours this is something I can see I am going to look forward to reading.
The introduction of the new characters are well done, with some information and their skills being added to the group – this looks to be a dangerous island, and they are going to have trouble getting off.
A brilliant beginning to an epic!
