By Eric K. on January 24, 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The basis for the story and art work in the first half of the book are outstanding. John Woo's fast paced action works well on the page and there's no shortage of Woo hallmarks in the story, right down to the doves. Sadly, the actual story and some of the characters can't match background legends or the artwork. I won't post spoilers but the main hero of the group was also the hardest for me to have any sympathy for and the most one dimensional.

The second half of the book lacks the overall scope of the first story but manages to actually show more of the character building that was absent in the first half, complete with a training montage. The one thing that manages to stay at a high level of execution through the entire book is the art. The style changes drastically between the two story collections, but still work well. What you end up with is a wildly inconsistent effort on the writing front that's gorgeous to look at.

Would I recommend this book? Yes, but not to everyone. If you're a hardcore John Woo or Asian mythology fan, then you can take a chance on this purchase. If you're buying it for the story...well...if they had managed to get one more volume published, they might have been able to tie up some loose ends and find some even pacing for the story. As it is, you've got two volumes together, partial closure to the story lines given, and plenty of eye candy.
