    All in all, Swordquest continues to be an enjoyable read from month to month. Dynamite has been known to snag up fledgling, or even dead properties, and bring new life to them and this is definitely the case with this new Atari line of comics. Read Full Review

    SwordQuest #2 is without a doubt a fantastical entry that spends a lot of time filling in the audience on how the tale reached this point. It's simply enjoyable and right up your alley if you're looking for an excuse to go down a solid nostalgic trip to the past. Read Full Review

    Spending half the book telling the tale of the world of Atara and its formation as well as the way the royal family shook out is a bit of a risky bet in some ways, especially without a lead-in to get it underway. There's a lot of information to soak up here but at the same time it's hard to totally invest in it because you're unsure of how much will actually matter and how much is just some momentary color for events. The world building is decent, coming off presumably what the games themselves did years ago, and getting a nod toward Airworld next is appealing as well. This is still a book I can't quite get a full read on but I'm continuing to be curious about what it'll actually do. Read Full Review
