Welcome to the high fantasy world of Tangea! A land where wizards and warriors battle
dragons in dark dank dungeons! Where thieves pillage ancient ruins and priests answer the au-dible words of their great gods!

Welcome to Chicago, Illinois! Where the magical items from Tangea are being traded on the black market and are messing everything up.

Now, a group of Tangea adventurers must go undercover in our modern world to stop artifacts and monsters from falling into the wrong hands. But how will they fare in a world without
wizards and warriors? A world without heroes?

    Bequest sets up a simple idea but populates it with a lot of characters on both sides and a lot of world-building material baked into it as well. Tim Seeley has a lot of things going into it so that it feels fully realized and that definitely gives the whole book a lot more weight because of it. But it also makes it a dense read, which is good, as it's not something you flip through in a few minutes and know all that you need to. It sets up for what should be a fun series with some crazy times ahead knowing his past works and that's going to give Williams an immense amount of freedom and creativity to bring to life. Going by what we get in this opening issue, it's going to be a really wild ride. Hopefully, it's one that takes a little more time to breathe going forward as this is a really packed issue that could have been two issues easily. Read Full Review

    Freddie E. Williams' art is also a bit off-putting, combining cartoonish proportions with an insane amount of detail that gives everything a literal dirty look. Read Full Review

    The plot is not really that interesting, but I belive Tim Seeley could make me change my mind in the next issue. There are a cool and funny ideas. The colours are good. However the characters are all bland and generic. The ugly artwork is also a very negative point.
