    Birthright amazes as a fantasy series; shocking us and destroying our ideas of how a story was supposed be told. It goes to that shadowy, yet magical, place in our minds, and this issue takes us further into that murky place where Mikey is being confronted for his corruption, the Nevermind, and fighting back; showing perhaps some of the hero is still left inside of him.

    Really good issue, exposing the limits that Mikey has with his ties to Lore. Art as always is off the chart, would like to see more of this style of art involved with the Diviner. Read Full Review

    Artistically it is the fantasy elements which stand out most visually in Birthright #9. It really catches you off guard storywise finding out how immoral a spell like the Diviner is, and yet be a spell that creates so much beauty where ever it touches. Not including the hunters, but the environment in particular. It goes without saying how beautiful it all looks in design. That is as literal as it gets when the Mages say “…We will send Terrenos to him.” And it goes without saying that the colors bring it all together between the visions Mikey gets, the environment changes and just the way in which the Diviner is captured as the bear. It's a challenging appearance because it looks spiritual, yet this bear is one that looks like it's falling apart. Read Full Review

    There are some crazy images in this book that I haven’t seen utilized so well in a long, long time. Not to mention the suspense in this series is almost too much to handle! I like to think it’s just some really good storytelling, and I’m not that impatient. Either way, there is still so much good to come with this series. I am looking forward to more plot twists and breathtaking illustrations. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jul 23, 2015

    I'm not quite sure where it happened, but somewhere along the line adult Mikey's tale became the least interesting thing in Birthright. Thankfully, Joshua Williamson and Andrei Bressan have stepped things up in other areas, especially in regards to the increasingly blurred lines between Mikey's two worlds. Read Full Review
