The King is dead - long live the DEAD KING! King Valen Brand was a just king and a great warrior until he was killed by a Necromancer in battle and resurrected as one of the walking dead. Now he's considered an abomination in his own realm, an outcast with only one purpose: to restore his lost soul... From the mind of fan-favorite creator Michael Alan Nelson (28 DAYS LATER, ROBERT E. HOWARD'S HAWKS OF OUTREMER) and DEADPOOL artist Matteo Scalera comes OUTCAST, a visceral new ongoing series that blends "epic fantasy" with "sword-and-sorcery." Perfect for fans of Game of Thrones and Conan. Don't miss this action-packed second issue!

    Being a comic reviewer I get the sweet perk of receiving most comics for free digitally (muahaha), but I am definitely going down to my local comic shop to pick up a hard copy of this series (maybe even multiple editions to get all of the covers) just so I can really look at the awesomely detailed artwork. I am not sure how many comic books I have given 5 skull reviews to, but this is the only one I wish I could give more. I am looking forward to the next issue, and hopefully you will be too after reading this. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Jan 5, 2012

    There are a lot of sword and sorcery comics on the stands right now, and this mini-series continues to be at the top of the stack, bringing entertainment with each issue. Though I would like to see more progression toward the end goal, BOOM! has a hit on its hands with Valen the Outcast. Valen the Outcast #2 is worth picking up, and earns 4 out of 5 Stars.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jan 7, 2012

    I'm enjoying this book and I'm still looking forward to thenext issues. My hope is that Nelson has some surprises in store for the readerdown the road. In these early issues its okay to set the stage and have some ofthe "usual", but that's not going to cut it with future issues. If you'relooking for a good hack and slash sword book though this is the one grab. Read Full Review
