    I really liked the idea of the unlikely hero whose job is to work behind the scenes to make sure the obvious hero can save the world when his time comes. This idea gradually unfolds before us, and it gives us a charming story where Twig goes through his own quest and learns his own lessons, all while just trying to do his job. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Sep 7, 2022

    At issues end, it is promised that Twig Will Return. Young, Strahm, and Beaulieu have a lot of different options for further series that could be placed in the world of the fuzzy, blue hero. Its been rendered with such love and care that it would seem kind of strange to allow it to end at only five issues. Youngs particular twist on the story of the hero makes for an interesting view on the traditional high fantasy story. There are heroes...and then there are heroes behind the heroes. Twigs particular place in that ecosystem of adventure fantasy would be fun to have a little bit more time with in the future. Read Full Review
