    The opening issue felt like it had two issues of material and this one does in a way as well. Part of it is that Seeley is going pretty verbose here, and sometimes when not needed, while Williams' artwork is fantastic but so detail that it makes the whole thing feel busier and denser than it might actually be. You slow down to read more, which is great, and then slow down to savor the artwork, which is wonderful, but that's problematic during the big action material here. It does have a high second-read and more value to it because there are so many details you miss the first time on both worlds that it's really easy to recommend. It's a very fun story with an interesting group of archetypes that are slowly trying to become characters. I love the mixing of fantasy and modern in general and Seeley has found a fun execution point for it. Read Full Review

    The Bequest #2 is thankfully nowhere near as dense as that first issue, but it feels like it still hasn't hit its stride yet when it comes to D&D meets modern Chicago. Read Full Review
