This read exactly like a legend from times of old.

A romantic adventure, a quest for greatness that comes from the purity of the character and his motives. Like the adventures of Odysseus or king Arthur.

Miller's narration sometimes is so strong and gripping. Unlike anyone else currently in comics.

JRJR is also at his best.

Another issue with a liar reveal. The character interactions are superficial and the story has nothing much going on that we didn't already know. Fabok's art is good but not good enough.

I don't think I can classify it as bad, the art is okay and the story is nothing extraordinary but the main problem is that the ending IS cheap. I understand taking risks but the ending was cheap shock-value which killed any momentum the story had.
