After her family was killed by 3 super powered strangers Dara Brighton discovered a magic sword her father hid from the family. Now she's hunting the killers and has the power to finally stop them.

With this book The Sword swings into high gear, offering the first of 3 apocalyptic battles against Dara's foes. The first half is quite slow as she and her friends track down the first killer, the water-controlling Zakros but once she does the action never stops.

The Luna's really think through their own story, giving both Dara and Zakros impressive powers but with limits, and the battle is choreographed like a movie with the action flowing neatly from panel to panel, scene to scene. It's a major improvement over the usual American comic where people swing their fists while reciting their life story.

My only real complaint is that, like another reviewer, I had the cover come off in my hands during my first reading. If you see this in a store make sure the binding is solid.

Dara Brighton is on the run from the authorities and on the trail of the three siblings who killed her parents and sister. Her best friend Julie and random funeral goer Justin are along for the ride since they are accomplices to her escape from killing some would-be kidnappers in the last issue. Justin was a student of Dara's dad who remembered fantastic stories the father told in his college class: a man named Demetrios lived 4000 years ago on the island of Crete. Four siblings showed up with miraculous elemental powers and demanded control of the island. One brother, Phaistos, wanted total control so the other three plotted against him. They created a sword that could kill him and would grant the wielder superhuman powers. They gave the sword to Demetrios who did the job. Then Demetrios turned on them (since the sword would kill them too) and forced them to live in hiding for thousands of years. In later stories, one of the siblings used to hang out in the Bahamas a lot. So Dara heads there with Justin and Julie to find him. After a long trip from Washington, D.C., to the Bahamas, and several days of fruitless searching, she finds the man and they have a massive fight.

I like the overall expanding story, with more information given about the history of the siblings. But the plot runs on lots of coincidences and contrivances. When Dara and friends make it to Miami they can't afford a regular ferry ticket but they happen to meet a family that's going over on their private yacht. The family eventually recognizes her as that crazy woman from TV that killed her family and a bunch of other people, but just in time some pirates attack the yacht. Dara is able to subdue the pirates and they escape, suddenly making the family trusting and helpful.

To start out with, I've got to say that I'm not the biggest fan of the Luna Brothers. I read both "Girls" and "Ultra", which were good, but nowhere near as good as this. The only complaint that I have for all three,including "The Sword", is that all of the characters, both male and female look exactly the same. This is something that I feel that the Luna's really need to work on, but I guess I shouldn't judge since I'm not an artist. I am a writer however, and these guys have talent, which is truly displayed in this volume of "The Sword". I enjoyed this volume even better than the first, and I think this is because Dara starts taking some revenge on those that killed her family. I don't want to ruin this book for the people out there that haven't read it, but I do want to say that if you like adventure, magic, and aren't offended by a little gore, this is the title for you. Plus, the bond that Dara makes with her traveling companions is awesome as well. You don't get enough of that in graphic novels these days. I have found my new favorite title.
Peace and Love,
Jake

I loved the first book in the series and I wasn't disappointed by this one. It might not have the grandios build that the first book had, but what can you do when this is the second in a four book piece (or is it three). Anyway, I would recommend it to anyone who read the first book and liked what they read.
