    Crusader #1 is intelligently constructed and highly entertaining. This first issue kicks off with well-established character dynamics and grisly action all dressed up in an art style that manages to be both charmingly cartoonish and atmospheric. Read Full Review

    CRUSADER #1 sends a Templar Knight to a world of magic and monsters in a fast-reading fantasy/adventure. Emmonss setup is as clean, clear, simple, and efficient as it is entertaining. The art may be an acquired taste, but Emmonss excellent coloring makes the visuals accessible enough for anyone. Read Full Review
