Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There's a taut sense of time throughout this volume, and through the series as a whole. The countdown is on. Time has already passed, and the world-shaking event three days hence just gets closer. But the people around us live their own lives and their own urgencies.

Roxanna is the babe in this broads 'n' broadswords adventure series. Her small band includes the compulsory sidekick, venal and comical, and the greybeard who has mastered knowledge beyond words. You know, the usual. There are grunting hench-beings, including a female (as if anyone cares) with dragging dugs. Then there's the little blue "furry." Roxanna often comes across as passive, or at best manipulative. Then, at the end, her little critter is threatened - then follows the one berserker scene of bloodlust in this fairly combative book.

I've seen the end and the beginning of this series, though not much in between. This volume stands by itself, mostly, but comes across as incomplete because of that lacking information. Hallucinatory scenes lack substance, and goals lack immediacy. Still, the artwork is good and the story flows. By itself, this volume balances continuity against surprise. It serves its purpose in the larger story arc, as well. This isn't a defining work of comic art, but comic fans who find a good price will enjoy it.
