I've stated before, this book just feels rich. So much thought and planning must have gone into it before the title even launched and you just feel that reading it. Nilaa has a vast and complex history and all of these characters have a role to play in the upcoming battle. You just get the feeling that nothing is wasted here. No one is just there for the ride or to fill space. There is a reason for everything and everyone. It's sort of amazing that writer Christy Marx hasn't really written many comic books, working mainly in animation and video games. Maybe that's the key, a fresh attitude and approach. (It would seem to be the case, considering how many comic veterans are writing for DC these days and are turning in by-the-numbers, mediocre books.) This is a great book and one of the ones I look forward to the most every month. Read Full Review
Next month's "Sword of Sorcery" #8 will be a 30-page issue devoted solely to the "Amethyst" storyline, allowing Marx enough space to tie up Eclipso's invasion and any other loose ends. I look forward to the finale, while feeling that it's a shame that the sales on "Sword of Sorcery" weren't strong enough to keep the bright, fun world of "Amethyst" on the shelves longer.
