    Outer Realm Comics - Ellis J. Wells Feb 19, 2012

    This was not the issue I thought it would be. Arrogantly I assumed I "knew" how it would resolve, based on the set-up of last issue. The Underbolts will befriend the monsters, kick Merlin's arrogant ass; and flee in salvation. I could not have been more wrong (or more pleased). Instead of an action packed throw-down, Jeff Parker delivers a very sombre (and quite moving) swan-song to the final years in Arthur's court. Merlin's bitter recounting of the "plague" the quest for the grail has brought upon Camelot, that the monsters were both in his care (to be protected from the world) AND YET also (ultimately) monsters, who want to feast, eat and kill innocents. It was a surprising, and beautifully told issue; with one HELL of a cliffhanger. Cannot wait. Jeff Parker, we are not worthy!!! Read Full Review

    Kev Walker's pencils retain their astonishingly high quality. His paneling is lively and never repeats itself, making each turn of the page feel fresh and exciting. There are several standout moments in this issue, including the dragon, the blink-and-you-missed-it affair between Lancelot and Guinevere, and the courtyard battle, yet the same can be said about all of them: they are visually striking with incredible details, and each one is complemented by a touch of humor.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Feb 19, 2012

    Goes by a bit too quickly, but it sure delivers a lot of enjoyable material. Parker's just having a good time, and Walker's partying with him; you'd do well to just breeze along for the ride. Read Full Review
