    Even the epilogue of "Lion of Avalon" is worth reading. The dialogue between Britain and Wanda show a depth of personality and kindness. I like also how they speak about Jan while she's not present. Friends talk about other absent friends all the time. It's habitual, and added here; this quirk of humanity gives the section of story a natural, warm feel. Sweetness can be found in the illustration of the two Jennys: one fast asleep and cradled in titanic arms that can rip a tank into two. Very few readers cannot help be moved by the final splash page.

    Morgan isnt a very effective menace here, nor do Brian or Megan play more than cameo roles. Austen is so concerned with his characters, he strings them on a rudimentary and not especially lucid plot. Hes lucky he has the expressively detailed Coipel to smooth over the obvious gears as they grind along. Read Full Review
