Another exciting chapter in this bold and provocative re-imagining of Robin Hood!

"There is a passage in Leviticus, long ignored, that forbids a man to lie with another man as he would with a woman." The truth behind the Merry Men's exile into Sherwood Forest is revealed, as is Robin's steamy past with King Richard. But now that Robin's friends are in danger, the Merry Men are faced with a choice. Stay in Sherwood, where their safety is all but guaranteed, or rescue those held hostage by the violent Guy of Gisbourne?

    Jackie Lewis' art has a lot of details as far as background and clothing goes but has cartoonish facial expression, which works for a high drama adventure story. It really feels like you're in the Middle Ages while reading the comic, and Marissa Louise uses lots of browns and greens to go with the whole forest wanderers' motif. This issue adds much-needed shading to the characters and Robert Rodi's and Jackie Lewis' world and also has yet another essay showing that yes, there were LGBTQ people in the Middle Ages, including one ginger king of England.
