A Songs For The Dead story: Bethany, the necromancer with a heart of gold, and Elissar, her prone-to-brawling companion, are off to find the Covenant--a sanctuary for Bethany's otherwise reviled magic. Unfortunately, their map makes no sense. Seeking the help of a young wizard named Jonas, whose knowledge may unravel the map's secrets, Bethany and Elissar discover a mysterious illness plaguing The Foggard temple, home to the ancient order of mages. Double-unfortunately, Bethany and Elissar are not on the best of terms following the recent and violent encounter at Boulder's Envy.

And while the genre of fantasy is usually not my cup of tea, I will be waiting on edge for the next issue nonetheless. Read Full Review

    While epic fantasy sometimes struggles in the comic format, this type of story is perfect for comics. It helps that Sam Beck's art is absolutely breathtaking"it's warm and expressive but not cartoonish at all. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Ingrid Lind-Jahn Aug 30, 2019

    The world feels lived in and as though it has history. There's a bit of information dump and only a modest amount of action, but I think it's promising. Read Full Review
