Image Comics reviews for 1-10-18

Image Comics keeps things rolling for the week of 1-10-18. New releases include Witchblade #2 featuring the newest Witchblade Alex Underwood and Eternal Empire #6. Check out all the reviews here:

Coyotes #3

Eternal Empire #6

Rose #7

Witchblade #2

Coyotes #3

Coyotes #2 left readers with a cliffhanger that implied that perhaps the women in the story may have some of their own tricks up their sleeves as Red finds a doll with the likeness of her dead sister. Coyotes #3 shows a bit more of the werewolf side and explains the hunger they experience and it’s tie to a goddess named Gaia. Elsewhere, Red discovers the truth behind the doll of her sister and even a truth about her own destiny.

Coyotes had remained consistently well written and well drawn so the experience of reading it is always welcomed on my end. The grisly violence is taken to new heights as Red and her best friend find a room full of wolves and makes me extremely eager to see what’s going to happen next in the series in February.

If you aren’t already a fan of Coyotes, get to it. –Pierre Brown

Eternal Empire #6

Eternal Empire #6 left readers with the return of dragons and the possible link to Tair and Rion. Elsewhere The Empress questions her father about her lack of more power magic and brews up plans for the future. Eternal Empire is a dark fantasy that in my mind it sort of feels like…an alternate universe where Daenerys from Game of Thrones is evil. And Drogon is her father instead of her child. And she’s pissed because she isn’t the last of her kind. In short, if you like Game of Thrones this series is for you. –Pierre Brown

Rose #7

Last we saw Rose in Rose #6, the evil queen Drucilla raided a village in search of Rose but failed. In Rose #7, readers are given flashbacks of the lives of the two women before they became enemies. In present time, Rose begins to doubt herself as guardian and Drucilla holds the piece that kept their village together, Ila.

Rose has returned and I didn’t realize how much I truly missed it. Seeing these fantastically written characters and being back in this beautifully crafted fantasy world made me all the more excited for its return. The writing in this issue is great for providing a backstory that ties the younger versions of Rose and Drucilla as so different yet they ached for more than what was given to them.  I’m, (surprisingly), interested in the backstory of Drucilla who seems to have a few secrets to hide as to how she came to power.

Rose is off to a great start in this year and I’m eager to see where the story goes next month. –Pierre Brown

Sleepless #2

Last time we entered the world of Sleepless, Poppy had an assassination attempt and her knight watched over her as she slept. This time in Sleepless #2, Lady Poppy is seeking a way to avoid court duties and she just may have found her way out with the arrival of her mother. Or perhaps she still isn’t able to leave after all.

Sleepless #2 takes a break from the action of the previous issue to build up more intrigue. Poppy’s world seems to grow  more out of her own hands and she questions nearly everyone she gets in contact with.

However, I’m still desiring more information concerning the people that are Sleepless. There is a tad more to the lore added in issue #2 but hopefully more issues in the future will be able to fully flesh out those kinds of characters in this series.

Witchblade #2

witchblade 2Issue #1 of Image Comics Witchblade introduced readers to Alex Underwood; the newest wielder of the Witchblade. In the newest release, Alex is under investigation for the death of a client’s husband as she struggles with her new found powers and learns the history of the mysterious Witchblade.

Witchblade #2 solidifies itself as a must read as new developments are hinted although this issue isn’t quite as action packed as the first. Alex is an interesting heroine to follow and I look forward to reading more of her adventures with the Witchblade. –Pierre Brown
