    Your standard sword and sorcery book topped with a twist of Studio Ghibli. The art is sometimes frustrating, others quite good. I would like to see it more defined, especially faces. There are times when the characters look like Muppets. But the action scenes look great. So it's an odd...

    This is one of my favourite books for quite sometime. It has an interesting concept and hopefully grows into a long term series, a lot of these tend to vanish after 10 issues. I love when a series can come along and knock you backwards with a fun plot and interesting characters. Girner...

    3.5* Read this over my lunch break today. Solid standard fantasy affair. Kinda had this weird d&d mix with pokemon artwork. Characters were fun, enough action ( a little YAish) and some funny moments. The artwork would have benefited from a little more detail in my opinion. Othe...

    I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley I thought this was a pretty fun story, even if it does have a lot of REALLY standard fantasy elements. I would also like it if the artwork was a little bit more defined. Still the characters are fun and honestly the fact that the my...

    A whimsical fantasy adventure where D&D meets Ghibli. Fun. ...

    Normally, I bristle at alliterative riffs on Dungeons and Dragons, or Image attempts at outright secondary world fantasy, but this new book from the co-writer of Shirtless Bear-Fighter! is pretty good - an all-ages Rat Queens if Rat Queens didn't make me feel faintly ill. The art is ap...

    Super duper fun. A natural maturation of and readalike to Giants Beware by Jorge Aguirre. A great readalike, moodwise and feministwise, to LumberJanes. ...

    This series immediately caught my eye when Image released the first cover artwork. So, when it released I picked it up at my local comic shop. The beginning is fantastic and sets up some questions that really help to drive the story through the series so far. I do think that there are ...

    Colorful, action-filled, and fast-paced, I enjoyed this but don't know if it's more than just a wild ride. The characters are a bit one-dimensional, though I am interested in Lu's background. Sort of like an older, more coherent Lumberjanes. ...

    An excellent, colorful sword & sorcery romp that manages effortless worldbuilding, action, character depth, and plot twists, all without taking itself too seriously. Familiar tropes that avoid being eye-rolling cliches make this an easy story to jump into lightly yet still deeply e...

    This comic was a fun, and enjoyable read. It reminded me a lot of Rat Queens, in the way that neither take the fantasy genre too seriously. If you like fantasy/d&d inspired stories then give this a go! ...

    And we?re off to a good start. ...

    4.5 out of 5 stars I love fantasy stories. So it isn't any surprise that I picked up the latest fantasy graphic novel, which hit shelves today, February 13, 2018. Scales & Scoundrels Vol. 1: Into the Dragon?s Mawby Sebastian Girner and Galaad is a delightful fantasy perfect ...

    A violent, fire-breathing girl with a mysterious past (heavily alluded its dragon-related) teams up with some diverse but fairly flat characters to travel through a PG verison of the Tomb of Horrors. Some of the elements (and art) reminded me of Nimona, but it failed to push into new ...

    The art style and composition was fun. I liked the pacing, mystery building, and use of backstory a great deal and the action was well done. Some of the characterization seemed a little slight, but that may just be by comparison given the strength of other portrayals within the same bo...

    Fantasy comic collection ? fairly good but nothing special Involving Luvander, an athletic thief and rogue, this comic collection is a fantasy story about a quest for treasure with a prince, his bodyguard and dwarves. Various fantastical creatures are met along the way and Luvande...

    Really fun graphic novel with an impressive heroine. Luvandra looks like a regular scoundrel but there?s something about her that might suggest she is more than meets the eye. She sets on a quest with a prince, his bodyguard and a dwarf to look for gold and adventure. I like the visu...

    This comic has many fantasy tropes, but it finds a way to show them in a new light. The story is female led and the main group of characters is diverse. I'd say this story is a modern D&D group. There's humor and fun. A fantasy world. Royals. Dragons. Dwarves. Hidden cities. Treasu...

    A decent read here, although we've seen a lot of this before. A wacky band of mismatched explorers go for the biggest, deepest treasure, that nobody alive can claim to have seen. The artwork makes it look a little too like a child's-only read, but it can just about entertain the adult ...

    Enter Luvander, an penniless adventurer down on her luck and on the run. She runs into a prince and bodyguard accompanied by a dwarf surrounded by bandits. They all got chased down The Dragon's Maw dungeon by the bandits and a very strange dude. Read and find out if the adventures will...

    A fun, all-ages medieval fantasy adventure starring Lu, a mysterious rogue who teams up with a prince, his bodyguard, and his guide to investigate a long-lost subterranean realm in search of treasure. ...

    I liked this. Hopefully it'll only get better, though I've not given it a super high rating because of some stereotypical stuff. I really like the art, and the story is interesting and Lu is intriguing. Is she a dragon, or something? Guess we'll know later. ...

    An entertaining fantasy romp that is far more all-ages friendly that its contemporaries ?Skullkickers? or ?Rat Queens? - story is simple so far, but there?s a lot of promise. I?m on board for the ride ...

    Dang what a cliffhanger! Really fun, adventurous story with amazing art! ...

    I started with thinking it was merely ok but by the end I really wanted more! ...

    A perfectly entertaining all-ages (so far) fantasy comic, but seriously, if you're going to write about dragons, know the difference between "horde" and "hoard." Just sayin'. ...

    High adventure!! ...

    Took me a while to get into it, but by the end I was invested! Looking forward to the next one. ...

    Really fun graphic novel with an impressive heroine. Luvandra looks like a regular scoundrel but there?s something about her that might suggest she is more than meets the eye. She sets on a quest with a prince, his bodyguard and a dwarf to look for gold and adventure. I like the visu...

    This comic has many fantasy tropes, but it finds a way to show them in a new light. The story is female led and the main group of characters is diverse. I'd say this story is a modern D&D group. There's humor and fun. A fantasy world. Royals. Dragons. Dwarves. Hidden cities. Treasu...

    A decent read here, although we've seen a lot of this before. A wacky band of mismatched explorers go for the biggest, deepest treasure, that nobody alive can claim to have seen. The artwork makes it look a little too like a child's-only read, but it can just about entertain the adult ...

    Enter Luvander, an penniless adventurer down on her luck and on the run. She runs into a prince and bodyguard accompanied by a dwarf surrounded by bandits. They all got chased down The Dragon's Maw dungeon by the bandits and a very strange dude. Read and find out if the adventures will...

    Your standard sword and sorcery book topped with a twist of Studio Ghibli. The art is sometimes frustrating, others quite good. I would like to see it more defined, especially faces. There are times when the characters look like Muppets. But the action scenes look great. So it's an odd...

    This is one of my favourite books for quite sometime. It has an interesting concept and hopefully grows into a long term series, a lot of these tend to vanish after 10 issues. I love when a series can come along and knock you backwards with a fun plot and interesting characters. Girner...

    3.5* Read this over my lunch break today. Solid standard fantasy affair. Kinda had this weird d&d mix with pokemon artwork. Characters were fun, enough action ( a little YAish) and some funny moments. The artwork would have benefited from a little more detail in my opinion. Othe...

    I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley I thought this was a pretty fun story, even if it does have a lot of REALLY standard fantasy elements. I would also like it if the artwork was a little bit more defined. Still the characters are fun and honestly the fact that the my...

    A whimsical fantasy adventure where D&D meets Ghibli. Fun. ...

    Normally, I bristle at alliterative riffs on Dungeons and Dragons, or Image attempts at outright secondary world fantasy, but this new book from the co-writer of Shirtless Bear-Fighter! is pretty good - an all-ages Rat Queens if Rat Queens didn't make me feel faintly ill. The art is ap...

    Super duper fun. A natural maturation of and readalike to Giants Beware by Jorge Aguirre. A great readalike, moodwise and feministwise, to LumberJanes. ...

    This series immediately caught my eye when Image released the first cover artwork. So, when it released I picked it up at my local comic shop. The beginning is fantastic and sets up some questions that really help to drive the story through the series so far. I do think that there are ...

    Colorful, action-filled, and fast-paced, I enjoyed this but don't know if it's more than just a wild ride. The characters are a bit one-dimensional, though I am interested in Lu's background. Sort of like an older, more coherent Lumberjanes. ...

    An excellent, colorful sword & sorcery romp that manages effortless worldbuilding, action, character depth, and plot twists, all without taking itself too seriously. Familiar tropes that avoid being eye-rolling cliches make this an easy story to jump into lightly yet still deeply e...

    This comic was a fun, and enjoyable read. It reminded me a lot of Rat Queens, in the way that neither take the fantasy genre too seriously. If you like fantasy/d&d inspired stories then give this a go! ...

    A perfectly entertaining all-ages (so far) fantasy comic, but seriously, if you're going to write about dragons, know the difference between "horde" and "hoard." Just sayin'. ...

    High adventure!! ...

    Took me a while to get into it, but by the end I was invested! Looking forward to the next one. ...

    3.5* Read this over my lunch break today. Solid standard fantasy affair. Kinda had this weird d&d mix with pokemon artwork. Characters were fun, enough action ( a little YAish) and some funny moments. The artwork would have benefited from a little more detail in my opinion. Othe...

    Super duper fun. A natural maturation of and readalike to Giants Beware by Jorge Aguirre. A great readalike, moodwise and feministwise, to LumberJanes. ...

    This series immediately caught my eye when Image released the first cover artwork. So, when it released I picked it up at my local comic shop. The beginning is fantastic and sets up some questions that really help to drive the story through the series so far. I do think that there are ...

    Colorful, action-filled, and fast-paced, I enjoyed this but don't know if it's more than just a wild ride. The characters are a bit one-dimensional, though I am interested in Lu's background. Sort of like an older, more coherent Lumberjanes. ...

    An excellent, colorful sword & sorcery romp that manages effortless worldbuilding, action, character depth, and plot twists, all without taking itself too seriously. Familiar tropes that avoid being eye-rolling cliches make this an easy story to jump into lightly yet still deeply e...

    This comic was a fun, and enjoyable read. It reminded me a lot of Rat Queens, in the way that neither take the fantasy genre too seriously. If you like fantasy/d&d inspired stories then give this a go! ...

    And we?re off to a good start. ...

    4.5 out of 5 stars I love fantasy stories. So it isn't any surprise that I picked up the latest fantasy graphic novel, which hit shelves today, February 13, 2018. Scales & Scoundrels Vol. 1: Into the Dragon?s Mawby Sebastian Girner and Galaad is a delightful fantasy perfect ...

    A violent, fire-breathing girl with a mysterious past (heavily alluded its dragon-related) teams up with some diverse but fairly flat characters to travel through a PG verison of the Tomb of Horrors. Some of the elements (and art) reminded me of Nimona, but it failed to push into new ...

    The art style and composition was fun. I liked the pacing, mystery building, and use of backstory a great deal and the action was well done. Some of the characterization seemed a little slight, but that may just be by comparison given the strength of other portrayals within the same bo...

    Fantasy comic collection ? fairly good but nothing special Involving Luvander, an athletic thief and rogue, this comic collection is a fantasy story about a quest for treasure with a prince, his bodyguard and dwarves. Various fantastical creatures are met along the way and Luvande...

    Really fun graphic novel with an impressive heroine. Luvandra looks like a regular scoundrel but there?s something about her that might suggest she is more than meets the eye. She sets on a quest with a prince, his bodyguard and a dwarf to look for gold and adventure. I like the visu...

    This comic has many fantasy tropes, but it finds a way to show them in a new light. The story is female led and the main group of characters is diverse. I'd say this story is a modern D&D group. There's humor and fun. A fantasy world. Royals. Dragons. Dwarves. Hidden cities. Treasu...

    A decent read here, although we've seen a lot of this before. A wacky band of mismatched explorers go for the biggest, deepest treasure, that nobody alive can claim to have seen. The artwork makes it look a little too like a child's-only read, but it can just about entertain the adult ...

    Enter Luvander, an penniless adventurer down on her luck and on the run. She runs into a prince and bodyguard accompanied by a dwarf surrounded by bandits. They all got chased down The Dragon's Maw dungeon by the bandits and a very strange dude. Read and find out if the adventures will...

    A fun, all-ages medieval fantasy adventure starring Lu, a mysterious rogue who teams up with a prince, his bodyguard, and his guide to investigate a long-lost subterranean realm in search of treasure. ...

    I liked this. Hopefully it'll only get better, though I've not given it a super high rating because of some stereotypical stuff. I really like the art, and the story is interesting and Lu is intriguing. Is she a dragon, or something? Guess we'll know later. ...

    An entertaining fantasy romp that is far more all-ages friendly that its contemporaries ?Skullkickers? or ?Rat Queens? - story is simple so far, but there?s a lot of promise. I?m on board for the ride ...

    Dang what a cliffhanger! Really fun, adventurous story with amazing art! ...

    Colorful, action-filled, and fast-paced, I enjoyed this but don't know if it's more than just a wild ride. The characters are a bit one-dimensional, though I am interested in Lu's background. Sort of like an older, more coherent Lumberjanes. ...

    An excellent, colorful sword & sorcery romp that manages effortless worldbuilding, action, character depth, and plot twists, all without taking itself too seriously. Familiar tropes that avoid being eye-rolling cliches make this an easy story to jump into lightly yet still deeply e...

    This comic was a fun, and enjoyable read. It reminded me a lot of Rat Queens, in the way that neither take the fantasy genre too seriously. If you like fantasy/d&d inspired stories then give this a go! ...

    And we?re off to a good start. ...

    4.5 out of 5 stars I love fantasy stories. So it isn't any surprise that I picked up the latest fantasy graphic novel, which hit shelves today, February 13, 2018. Scales & Scoundrels Vol. 1: Into the Dragon?s Mawby Sebastian Girner and Galaad is a delightful fantasy perfect ...

    A violent, fire-breathing girl with a mysterious past (heavily alluded its dragon-related) teams up with some diverse but fairly flat characters to travel through a PG verison of the Tomb of Horrors. Some of the elements (and art) reminded me of Nimona, but it failed to push into new ...

    The art style and composition was fun. I liked the pacing, mystery building, and use of backstory a great deal and the action was well done. Some of the characterization seemed a little slight, but that may just be by comparison given the strength of other portrayals within the same bo...

    Fantasy comic collection ? fairly good but nothing special Involving Luvander, an athletic thief and rogue, this comic collection is a fantasy story about a quest for treasure with a prince, his bodyguard and dwarves. Various fantastical creatures are met along the way and Luvande...

    Really fun graphic novel with an impressive heroine. Luvandra looks like a regular scoundrel but there?s something about her that might suggest she is more than meets the eye. She sets on a quest with a prince, his bodyguard and a dwarf to look for gold and adventure. I like the visu...

    This comic has many fantasy tropes, but it finds a way to show them in a new light. The story is female led and the main group of characters is diverse. I'd say this story is a modern D&D group. There's humor and fun. A fantasy world. Royals. Dragons. Dwarves. Hidden cities. Treasu...

    A decent read here, although we've seen a lot of this before. A wacky band of mismatched explorers go for the biggest, deepest treasure, that nobody alive can claim to have seen. The artwork makes it look a little too like a child's-only read, but it can just about entertain the adult ...

    Enter Luvander, an penniless adventurer down on her luck and on the run. She runs into a prince and bodyguard accompanied by a dwarf surrounded by bandits. They all got chased down The Dragon's Maw dungeon by the bandits and a very strange dude. Read and find out if the adventures will...

    A fun, all-ages medieval fantasy adventure starring Lu, a mysterious rogue who teams up with a prince, his bodyguard, and his guide to investigate a long-lost subterranean realm in search of treasure. ...

    I liked this. Hopefully it'll only get better, though I've not given it a super high rating because of some stereotypical stuff. I really like the art, and the story is interesting and Lu is intriguing. Is she a dragon, or something? Guess we'll know later. ...

    Your standard sword and sorcery book topped with a twist of Studio Ghibli. The art is sometimes frustrating, others quite good. I would like to see it more defined, especially faces. There are times when the characters look like Muppets. But the action scenes look great. So it's an odd...

    This is one of my favourite books for quite sometime. It has an interesting concept and hopefully grows into a long term series, a lot of these tend to vanish after 10 issues. I love when a series can come along and knock you backwards with a fun plot and interesting characters. Girner...

    3.5* Read this over my lunch break today. Solid standard fantasy affair. Kinda had this weird d&d mix with pokemon artwork. Characters were fun, enough action ( a little YAish) and some funny moments. The artwork would have benefited from a little more detail in my opinion. Othe...

    I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley I thought this was a pretty fun story, even if it does have a lot of REALLY standard fantasy elements. I would also like it if the artwork was a little bit more defined. Still the characters are fun and honestly the fact that the my...

    A whimsical fantasy adventure where D&D meets Ghibli. Fun. ...

    Normally, I bristle at alliterative riffs on Dungeons and Dragons, or Image attempts at outright secondary world fantasy, but this new book from the co-writer of Shirtless Bear-Fighter! is pretty good - an all-ages Rat Queens if Rat Queens didn't make me feel faintly ill. The art is ap...

    An entertaining fantasy romp that is far more all-ages friendly that its contemporaries ?Skullkickers? or ?Rat Queens? - story is simple so far, but there?s a lot of promise. I?m on board for the ride ...

    Dang what a cliffhanger! Really fun, adventurous story with amazing art! ...

    I started with thinking it was merely ok but by the end I really wanted more! ...
