    As a debut issue in an anthology. Arya did its job in grabbing my attention and giving me a reason to continue reading. I will admit I preferred Adventure Quest by Akimiya but that is only because of the fact that it reminded so much of my past with my friends: a big plus for a comic. Read Full Review

    "Arya" #1 is a nice reminder of the variety the medium offers even if its continuation isn't as clear as one would hope. Read Full Review

    At least I tried.
    For one, the interior his Black & White. I have nothing against it, just that not what we expect with a cover so colorful.
    In it we have two story. The first his about two girl playing RPG on something like a DS. That's not a very good story. The end his funny through. The second was on a woman that will go by some stuff, but is eaten & send in a pocket univers where the list she have will be her quest. I prefer this one, even this is a a part one story.
    The art is close to some Manga like drawing. I like more the second story than the first... I see too much of this "Trying to do manga too" (But I love the Smash page illustration in start & end of the issue) ... And I loved the Second story have something m more
