Helm vol.1

Helm is an Eisner-nominated comic series that takes place in a post-industrial revolution fantasy world, from Action Lab Entertainment. Volume #1 collects the first five issues of the series.

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
