    Overall, I thought that this was a slower-paced and poignant issue of Sword Daughter. Dag and Elsbeth become more reflective as their lives slow down for the winter months, allowing for us to glimpse into their changing dynamic and the ever-growing bond between them. Read Full Review

    While Sword Daughter suffers a bit due to the gap between issues there's a whole lot to like here. Brian Wood is crafting a strong tale of father and daughter and their journey of revenge while giving us a good feeling of the time period and its people. Mack Chater has been a favorite of mine for some time now and I love the work he's putting in here with a great looking issue in capturing the bleakness in a lot of what's going on. It's a grim book but one that finds the right small ways to give us a little lightness and levity while still driving forward that larger story of revenge. I can't wait for more. Read Full Review
