Ruin of Thieves: A Brigand’s Story #4

Writer: Ram V

Artist: Sumit Kumar

Letterer: Aditya Bidikar

Publisher: Action Comics

Synopsis: The Brigands wrap up their 4 book saga in this action packed finale that finds our heroes continuing on their mission to find The Myros Pendelum. Can everything be salvaged by a rescue? 

Review:  As the finale to the series, this one isn’t good as a stand-alone. When I say this, I’m not saying the story isn’t good. It is. It’s filled with great action and Loads of adventure. But, like all great series, it needs to be with its bookmates, otherwise it gets confusing. The artwork is beautiful and the story is an adventure.  The shocking ending is definitely worth the read.

Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars

Where to find more information: You can find Ruin of Thieves: A Brigand’s Story #4 at Comixology.

Sidekick Quests Vol 2 (Kickstarter)

Sidekick Quests is a beautiful combination of my loves and passions. I love tabletop gaming. I love comics. I am passionate about getting kids reading and kids learning to play games. Sidekick Quests does all of this, and I’m so happy I came across them.

The original Sidekick Quests webcomic was created in 2012 by James Stowe as a way to introduce his own children to roleplaying games.

He did this so well, I’m told, that new rules had to be instituted when a major protagonist critically failed a life-or-death roll.

In 2016, the first chapter of Sidekick Quests, The Secret of the Sewer Wizard, funded on Kickstarter and was released a...
