    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...

    3.5 A fun YA fantasy that manages to be more than the sum of its tropes. This is the first comic for both the writer and the artist, and yet it manages to look and read better than a lot in this genre. I especially like the creature designs. The Studio Ghibli influences are obvi...

    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...

    5/5 for artwork and 4/5 for a predictable story done really well. So. Good. Need. More. Just a seriously fun read. ...

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

    This was okay. Not as good as Rat Queens or other dungeon delving fantasy books, but I'm interested enough to read the next volume. Not a big fan of the artwork which kinda looks cartoony. ...

    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 ...

    This seems like a poor rating but it was ok. Not bad, just "ok." Individual issue reviews: #1 | #2 | #3 | #4 | #5 Total review score: 2.4 ...

    Picked this trade up because the title caught my attention! Scales & Scoundrels sounds very similar to Dungeons & Dragons and the graphic novel is similar to the classic fantasy world of D&D! A fun and light read that has dwarves, dragons, goblins, monsters and TAVERNS...I ...

    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. ...

    Scales and Scoundrels Volume 1 is a fun start to an intriguing adventure. The cast of characters introduce are funny with their own views of the world. Lu, as the main protagonist, is all about the food and gold, Dorma is just a dwarf who?s afraid of the dark and is looking for her b...

    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...

    An ongoing all-ages fantasy series. Fans of Nimona will like it. ...

    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. ...

    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...

    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 ...

    Scales & Scoundrels is a fantastic and newer series by Sebastian Girner (Shirtless Bear-Fighter) and Galaad, published by Image Comics. It?s a fun fantasy series, involving quests, danger, treasure, oh and did I mention dragons? The name probably gave that last one away a bit th...

    Luvander is a penniless girl, but like most of us, she has grand dreams of "making it"... though in this case, she wants to travel into ancient, dangerous places and grab any gold lying around for herself. As you may have guessed, this was not going to be an easy venture. With three...

    This is a decent all-ages fantasy book with interesting character designs and some fun dialog. The writing is crisp, and the art is decent, if inconsistent, but the real problem with this is the way it was collected. The first arc is seven issues long, but they rushed thetradeout at fi...

    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 ...

    I picked up this book after glancing at it at a convention, and as a person who's only dipped my toes in the fantasy genre every now and then, I really enjoyed reading this. My only grouse is that sometimes the action conveyed from panel to panel can be rather jarring, but nothing so m...

    This is the graphic novel chosen for my second month with the new group that I have joined, and I really loved it. I am so drawn to fantasy, so I was excited to start it. So excited, in fact, that I read it three weeks early. I?ll likely read through it again before attending the nex...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    5/5 for artwork and 4/5 for a predictable story done really well. So. Good. Need. More. Just a seriously fun read. ...

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

    This was okay. Not as good as Rat Queens or other dungeon delving fantasy books, but I'm interested enough to read the next volume. Not a big fan of the artwork which kinda looks cartoony. ...

    Scales & Scoundrels is a fantastic and newer series by Sebastian Girner (Shirtless Bear-Fighter) and Galaad, published by Image Comics. It?s a fun fantasy series, involving quests, danger, treasure, oh and did I mention dragons? The name probably gave that last one away a bit th...

    Luvander is a penniless girl, but like most of us, she has grand dreams of "making it"... though in this case, she wants to travel into ancient, dangerous places and grab any gold lying around for herself. As you may have guessed, this was not going to be an easy venture. With three...

    This is a decent all-ages fantasy book with interesting character designs and some fun dialog. The writing is crisp, and the art is decent, if inconsistent, but the real problem with this is the way it was collected. The first arc is seven issues long, but they rushed thetradeout at fi...

    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 ...

    I picked up this book after glancing at it at a convention, and as a person who's only dipped my toes in the fantasy genre every now and then, I really enjoyed reading this. My only grouse is that sometimes the action conveyed from panel to panel can be rather jarring, but nothing so m...

    This is the graphic novel chosen for my second month with the new group that I have joined, and I really loved it. I am so drawn to fantasy, so I was excited to start it. So excited, in fact, that I read it three weeks early. I?ll likely read through it again before attending the nex...

    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...

    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 ...

    Scales & Scoundrels is a fantastic and newer series by Sebastian Girner (Shirtless Bear-Fighter) and Galaad, published by Image Comics. It?s a fun fantasy series, involving quests, danger, treasure, oh and did I mention dragons? The name probably gave that last one away a bit th...

    Luvander is a penniless girl, but like most of us, she has grand dreams of "making it"... though in this case, she wants to travel into ancient, dangerous places and grab any gold lying around for herself. As you may have guessed, this was not going to be an easy venture. With three...

    This is a decent all-ages fantasy book with interesting character designs and some fun dialog. The writing is crisp, and the art is decent, if inconsistent, but the real problem with this is the way it was collected. The first arc is seven issues long, but they rushed thetradeout at fi...

    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 ...

    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...

    3.5 A fun YA fantasy that manages to be more than the sum of its tropes. This is the first comic for both the writer and the artist, and yet it manages to look and read better than a lot in this genre. I especially like the creature designs. The Studio Ghibli influences are obvi...

    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...

    5/5 for artwork and 4/5 for a predictable story done really well. So. Good. Need. More. Just a seriously fun read. ...

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

    This was okay. Not as good as Rat Queens or other dungeon delving fantasy books, but I'm interested enough to read the next volume. Not a big fan of the artwork which kinda looks cartoony. ...

    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 ...

    This seems like a poor rating but it was ok. Not bad, just "ok." Individual issue reviews: #1 | #2 | #3 | #4 | #5 Total review score: 2.4 ...

    Picked this trade up because the title caught my attention! Scales & Scoundrels sounds very similar to Dungeons & Dragons and the graphic novel is similar to the classic fantasy world of D&D! A fun and light read that has dwarves, dragons, goblins, monsters and TAVERNS...I ...

    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. ...

    Scales and Scoundrels Volume 1 is a fun start to an intriguing adventure. The cast of characters introduce are funny with their own views of the world. Lu, as the main protagonist, is all about the food and gold, Dorma is just a dwarf who?s afraid of the dark and is looking for her b...

    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...

    An ongoing all-ages fantasy series. Fans of Nimona will like it. ...

    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! ...

    This is the graphic novel chosen for my second month with the new group that I have joined, and I really loved it. I am so drawn to fantasy, so I was excited to start it. So excited, in fact, that I read it three weeks early. I?ll likely read through it again before attending the nex...

    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...

    This seems like a poor rating but it was ok. Not bad, just "ok." Individual issue reviews: #1 | #2 | #3 | #4 | #5 Total review score: 2.4 ...

    Picked this trade up because the title caught my attention! Scales & Scoundrels sounds very similar to Dungeons & Dragons and the graphic novel is similar to the classic fantasy world of D&D! A fun and light read that has dwarves, dragons, goblins, monsters and TAVERNS...I ...

    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. ...

    Scales and Scoundrels Volume 1 is a fun start to an intriguing adventure. The cast of characters introduce are funny with their own views of the world. Lu, as the main protagonist, is all about the food and gold, Dorma is just a dwarf who?s afraid of the dark and is looking for her b...

    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...

    3.5 A fun YA fantasy that manages to be more than the sum of its tropes. This is the first comic for both the writer and the artist, and yet it manages to look and read better than a lot in this genre. I especially like the creature designs. The Studio Ghibli influences are obvi...

    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...

    5/5 for artwork and 4/5 for a predictable story done really well. So. Good. Need. More. Just a seriously fun read. ...

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

    An ongoing all-ages fantasy series. Fans of Nimona will like it. ...

    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. ...

    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...

    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 ...

    Scales & Scoundrels is a fantastic and newer series by Sebastian Girner (Shirtless Bear-Fighter) and Galaad, published by Image Comics. It?s a fun fantasy series, involving quests, danger, treasure, oh and did I mention dragons? The name probably gave that last one away a bit th...

    Luvander is a penniless girl, but like most of us, she has grand dreams of "making it"... though in this case, she wants to travel into ancient, dangerous places and grab any gold lying around for herself. As you may have guessed, this was not going to be an easy venture. With three...

    This is a decent all-ages fantasy book with interesting character designs and some fun dialog. The writing is crisp, and the art is decent, if inconsistent, but the real problem with this is the way it was collected. The first arc is seven issues long, but they rushed thetradeout at fi...

    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 ...

    I picked up this book after glancing at it at a convention, and as a person who's only dipped my toes in the fantasy genre every now and then, I really enjoyed reading this. My only grouse is that sometimes the action conveyed from panel to panel can be rather jarring, but nothing so m...

    This is the graphic novel chosen for my second month with the new group that I have joined, and I really loved it. I am so drawn to fantasy, so I was excited to start it. So excited, in fact, that I read it three weeks early. I?ll likely read through it again before attending the nex...
