Sanctuary #4

The penultimate issue of Stephen Coughlin’s Sanctuary arrives and finds us on the cusp of both new discoveries and big revelations about the island habitat and the people and creatures that inhabit it.

The Good
We get launched right into Issue 4 of Sanctuary directly where the third one left off, and it really never stops.  This chapter is probably the most exciting so far, and pulls absolutely no punches.  I never thought I’d be so involved with the lives of both the animals and people, but you can’t help but be curious about these interesting characters.

The Bad
Even at the fourth issue, I’m hard pressed to find glaring problems that lessen the quality of this great book.

The Summary
Just when I thought things couldn’t get any crazier, I am proven wrong...

Princeless Vol. 2 Issue #1

The princess who ran away is back along with her new friend, Bedelia the girl blacksmith and her loyal guardian dragon Sparky. Now that Adrienne has escaped, she has her eyes set on freeing her sisters. First up is the most beautiful girl in all the kingdom, Angelica.

The Good

The adventures of our main characters are really starting to kick in, and we continue to get great writing and art to take us along on the journey.

The Bad
The change in artwork caught m...
