5 Eisner awards for 2018, two years after the first publication. That must say something, right? Itโ€™s a dark, bloody story of a quest happening in a realm of demons, dark magic and war. The universe is of the huge, epic-fantasy kind.

My quick review is: Amazed by the art, intrigued by the universe, let down by the writing and the story. At 200 pages, itโ€™s a big volume, but lots happen.
