The sword-swinging Black Beth is back by popular demand! Written by Alec Worley (Durham Red) and drawn by DaNi (Coffin Bound), Beth is a warrior-woman born in anger and forged in rage. She and her blind aide Quido have traveled to the wicked city of Shadrivar, in search of the evil witch Anis-Amuun. Many think that she is long dead, but a mage called Estevan believes otherwise. He charges Beth with a quest to destroy the witch, initiating a sea-spanning quest which pits Beth's curved blade against all manner of mystical creatures - and possibly Anis-Amuun herself!

    Classic sword & sorcery, bringing back a forgotten character from the mists of time in Brit comics, Alec Worley and DaNi's ‘Black Beth and the Devils of Al-Kadesh' is wonderful comic. Worley's story plays it all straight, all the better to allow DaNi's art to shine – and it absolutely does, making Black Beth a striking example of an artist at their height making beautiful work.

And while there isn't necessarily anything here we haven't seen before, the confident execution and clear affection from the creative team ensures that this is still a thoroughly enjoyable read.
