    While I'm admittedly enjoying the side stories a lot more than the main series because it doesn't feel as crowded, there's a lot going on here and the series is at that pivotal mark where events are having to change because things just got real. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Jul 8, 2015

    I enjoyed this issue as it seems to focus on the characters interaction. I have written that a couple of the tie-in books suffer due to the lack of interaction, Dejah and Irene for example. It is enjoyable to see an easy-going relationship and the elements of humour that come from the radio misrepresentation may be a somewhat tongue in cheek comments about larger issues. Plot wise, I am more than pleased that we seem to have hit some traction. Rather than meandering partnerships, we now have an actual cause rather than the nebulous stop the bad guy mantra that pervaded the earlier chapters. Despite the mixed reviews of some of the tie-ins, the main story has been consistent, with a new quest acting as the means to the end, this issue restarts the drive to the conclusion.

    Swords of Sorrow continues to be the crossover that I hoped it would, as though there are some iffy moments, with some development points lacking focus, the overall narrative is fantastic. It also teases the future of this event perfectly, with the action practically flying off the page. Read Full Review

    Swords of Sorrow #3 is certainly an interesting issue. It isn't a bad issue but it does suffer slightly from release schedules. It's a half way point in the story but it doesn't feel like it. With characters coming together and awkwardly saying each others names because there is a good chance a reader might never have heard of them. With a lot of set up for the coming issues and raising some questions with potentially silly answers. It'll get better once the following issues are out and its gets resolved, it's just as this issues stands it panders around with no real pay off and feels very padded out just to make it last 6 issues. It leaves you waiting for the next issue, but not out of excitement. Read Full Review
