     Arthur's fatal encounter with Modred unfolds and the walls of Camelot topple. But in a world where Arthur was tutored by a demon-in-wizard's clothing, will the legendary events unfold the way you expect? And-if they do-can Arthur find redemption before the killing blow is struck?

From writer Cullen Bunn (X-Men Blue, Deadpool, Venom) and artist Mirko Colak (The Punisher) comes a Lovecraftian take on the Arthurian legend that HAD to be told at AfterShock Comics.

    With the conclusion to the series, Unholy Grail goes out with a bloody, morose whimper, and it absolutely works. This is some of writer Cullen Bunns best work, and Colak and Santaolalla contribute some great work to boot. I highly recommend this issue, though you could also wait a few months for the trade release. Id recommend reading it now, personally. Of course, Im not the most patient person. Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - Kyle Malone Dec 19, 2017

    In terms of plot, Unholy Grail has been layering pieces of the story over each other one by one, though perhaps not all transitions across time have been as smooth as the artists would have intended. Importantly, Issue #5 stays fixed in one timeline across the entirety of its page count. As a result, it checks the back-and-forward narrative in terms of pace, allowing us to in a sense breathe despite the chaos of action it still manages to offer. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Andrew McAvoy Dec 23, 2017

    This book sure as hell tries to pack a mountain of Arthurian legend into the condensed format of the 5 issue mini-series. The story is told so well and so sparingly that it manages to pull it off. I say that though as someone who is fairly well versed in the legends. If I hadn't been I'm not entirely sure that I would have followed the plot in the abridged version represented in this whistle-stop tour. There was plenty of material here for this story to have been relayed in a longer form, and increasing the intricacy levels. Nonetheless a fine story, well told with art to take your breathe away leaves little scope for complaint in my eyes. Read Full Review
