I love Guillermo del Toros work have read the book this is based on and watched both seasons of the Netflix programme and this comic doesn’t disappoint.

I think its set during the first part of season 1 of the Netflix show but that is a little irrelevant as we are transported right back to the beginning the story, The Battle of Killahead Bridge! This is a major battle for Trollkind and a huge plot point for the story so it’s awesome to see what went on that night and see the origins of these characters.

Blinky, as the narrator obviously overplays his part but the tale is an epic one as the trolls end up marching through our history books on their trek to their new home. Fraught with the ever-present threat of Gunmar and weakened from their pact with humans not to eat them the trek is arduous, to say the least but the then Trollhunter steps up to his responsibility time and time again to lead them to safety hopefully inspiring Jim to at least attempt to do the same.

The artwork is incredible, the characters jump straight from the series and how can you not read it in Kelsey Grammars voice. Their mannerisms are captured perfectly and portrayed beautifully, an awesome comic

About Martin Cameron

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
