Man, Tom Taylor knows how to tell a story, I was engrossed from cover to cover!

Caspar takes over the narrative of this tale which makes sense as it is the story of his life up to the point of Sigurd’s death and what a tale it is. I thought Tajana was my favourite character with her sassiness and brutal tongue but Canto may just snatch it from her, I love how he interacts with Tajana while others may be scared of her he just isn’t. My favourite line was him not trying to be subtle.

Telling the story from Caspar’s perspective is a clever way to introduce all the other characters involved as they all enter his life to train him in different aspects, it gives us a chance to see the different natures of the secret holders and gives an impression of the big things Caspar clearly as in store for him. I loved the different ways that Eva AND Sigurd showed their protective instincts over Caspar with Eva confronting the problem and Sigurd working it from Caspar’s end.

The artwork is another level on this too, the emotion of Eva and Sigurd working so closely to their son but not being able to show him, love, is etched deep on it faces and so much is portrayed without words it’s insane.

Easily one of my favourite comics out at the moment

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
