    Sword Daughter continues to be a book that hits a sweet spot for me in what it does. While I'd love to see it spread its wings for years to come I'm also enjoying just how streamlined it is and how much it's still able to convey. Elsbeth's journey is definitely engaging here and seeing the way the dynamic has changed between her and her father over the course of it, and tidbits of her own journey through the flashbacks, makes her a pretty solid character. I'm excited to see how this storyline wraps up in the next issue while hoping there's a way that Wood and Chater can revisit it again in the future. Read Full Review
