GREG RUCKA proudly presents a new direction in adventure with... COMPASS!

Shahidah El-Amin is many things: scholar, cartographer, astronomer, mathematician, scientist, explorer, adventurer, and - when need be - two-fisted fighter. Setting out from Baghdad's legendary House of Wisdom during the Islamic Golden Age, Shahi's quest brings her to 13th-century Britain... where the Welsh are whispered to possess the secret of eternal life. But Shahi's not the only one after it...

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Jun 4, 2021

    The writing is very strong. I love the little twists and turns. The artwork is well done too. It does leave off on a cliffhanger but I expected nothing less. It is a solid first issue and the whole book is bursting with ideas and fun. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Max Funkey May 26, 2021

    Overall, Compass #1 is a great first issue of a series I am now looking forward to seeing more of. Shahidah is a compelling hero, and her adventures strike the same chords as others before her, but it still all feels very fresh. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Olly MacNamee Jun 10, 2021

    ‘Compass' #1 is a face-paced, treasure hunting, medieval adventure that brings the world of early Islamism to the barbaric shores of Wales. Not the most exotic of locations, but certainly one that offers plenty of mystery and a great juxtaposition of cultures. Read Full Review
