The Good
It’s hard to go wrong with a story involving Merlin.  I definitely enjoyed the first issue of Daughters of Merlin and its new approach to the land of Camelot.  It gave us a good amount of action and of course, plenty of magic which is always fun to see.  I particularly enjoyed the scenes where he displayed the immense magical powers that he possessed while fighting off foes.

Fairy Tale Knights Prelude

This 25 page book highlights concept and completed art from the highly anticipated comic book series “Fairy Tale Knights”!! It features a ten page mini story of the main characters Malia and Patrick, as they try to cross “the Bridge of gloom” guarded by the Troll and his Henchmen.

The Bad
Without any text, the story was a little tough to follow through any of the panels without action that could speak for itself.

The Summary
As a preview type of book, it does its job in piquing your interest j...
