    Three issues in, and it's only getting better. I like the fact that you do not need to be previously familiar with Dragon Age or it's universe to find enjoyment out of these characters. It is crafted in a very accessible way. The books tend to be very quick reads but that does not diminish their potency. I am also liking the evolution of Carmen Carnero's art here. She seems to really be hitting her stride. She has a very interesting style that seems to subtly evolve with each and every issue and for the better. Scribe extraordinaire Greg Rucka makes this a fantasy romp with a lot of balance. I am thoroughly enjoying this book as a casual viewer and hope it progresses to a more permanent format. I don't need to see a cleric to break this spell that's been cast on me as a reader. Fantastic job and + 5 dexterity for this one. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Todd Young Feb 15, 2016

    I enjoyed this issue the most of all Dragon Age: Magekiller offerings so far. The new story turn seems more interesting than the first two books and I feel like I'm getting to know the characters. The art is colorful and pops during action scenes. I'll take a wait and see approach to how well the tie-in with the game helps or hinders the story, but no sense looking for a problem until there is one. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Cindy Harley Apr 6, 2016

    Just like the first edition of Magekiller, the graphics are fearsome and catches the eye. The storyline grabs the readers attention. It makes we wonder how the next edition continues and what other creatures and demons Marius and Tessa come across. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steven Phillips Feb 17, 2016

    Priority and responsibility seem to be central themes of this issue. Faced with the potential end of the world, our protagonists easily slip into the roles of heroes. As a result not much happens in issue three of Magekiller. Tessa gets fleshed out nicely. And the closing panels set up a major change to our heroes' motivation and direction. It's a good momentum-sustaining issue. Read Full Review
