Jean-Paul Valley's path to righteousness continues as he uncovers the antediluvian crucible that gave shape to the first Azrael centuries ago. Buried deep within the heart of an active volcano, its halls hold the secrets of the Order of St. Dumas...and the great beast who lived through it all.

    The third issue of Dan Watters' deep dive into the world of Azrael takes the series in a much more horror-driven direction. Read Full Review

    This is a great comic. I never expected to see Azrael get this kind of spotlight again (especially with such a high quality creative team) so I feel lucky every month just to be getting this book. It is still an easy recommendation for me. Buy it! Read Full Review

    The introduction of a new villain develops tension and releases it with an excellent, albeit brief, combat sequence by the end. Wherever the battle is going, it alone is cause enough to return to Sword of Azrael next month. Read Full Review

    What's great about this series is the way that anyone who knows nothing about Azrael or his history can pick it up and partake of a delicious meal. However, those of us who know about the Knights Templar and their rogue offshoot, The Order Of St. Dumas, from the original Sword of Azrael mini-series (1992-1993), through “Knightfall”, “Knightquest”, and “KnightsEnd”, plus Azrael's own 100-issue series (1995-2003) will be tasting an altogether, deeper, richer, and more bountiful banquet.

    I love everything about this!
    The whole team puts so much passion, hard work and effort into this and it shows.
    The art is dynamic and full of passion, the colors fit the art and set the mood. And the lettering is one of the best and most creative I have ever seen.
    Everything goes amazingly together. And the story is so well written!
    I also love the covers of all the issues.
    I am so happy Azrael was brought back to life and given in the hands of this amazing team.

    I actually give this issue a zero out of ten. The art continues to be really really bad. The images are little more then doodles with lack of detail or any sort of drawing that requires any real effort or talent. The colours that are used remind me the late 1990's fashion where neon was popular, at least the poor choice for colours matches the horrible artwork.

    Then there is the lackluster writing. This is the third issue of a six issue mini series. We should be at the most exciting part of the story and it feels like this is something that should have been established in issue 2. Watters is dragging his feet in terms of pacing and his plot development is obvious. I also didn't like that they had Azrael lose so easily to more
