    There is a constant push-pull between the banal and the stirring, one that can only be forgotten about in a handful of pages, but boy are they an incredible handful. Read Full Review

    This issue left a lot to be desired. A lot of things were happening but we did not receive an explanation for anything. Darius is now the King but we don't know anything about him. The last issue did a good job giving us some insight into Xerxes' reign as King. None of that was in this issue. I can't tell you what anyone's motivation is.

    On the bright side, there was an epic action sequence in this issue that was well executed however 4 pages from the battle could have been used to develop the characters.

    The highlight of this issue was the action & art work. The story line was lacking. We'll see what the next issue brings.
