I feel I have to mention that this is the first fantasy comic I have read apart from Marvel or DC comics, I seriously don't know how I have missed out on all the fun this long.
Chronicles of a Necromancer sets the scene with the Necromancer working magic on a voodoo doll. Is this the Goddess Athena? We don't know for sure. The action quickly moves to present day Moorhill Hill where two teenage girls are studying. In an action-packed sequence, Beth pushes Nadine and a mystical scroll is uncovered. What will happen next.
Due to the nature of comics, only a short story can be told, but rest assured, this is enough to reel you in and leave you wanting more with this cliff-hanger ending.
Jose has a great writing style, which I really enjoyed and it is wonderfully complemented by the artistic talents of Glenn. They make a great collaborative pair.
I received a free copy of this comic in exchange for an honest review and would rate the 4.5 stars.
Now, please excuse me while I rush out and grab the next installment ...
OK, so issue 2 is just as good as the first one. Like a true champion, Jose screams plot twist just when I thought I knew what would happen next. Let's just say, these girls are not all they appear.
Sorry I wasn't able to get the correct picture for issue 2, but it is a fantastic cover and you can see it on the Chronicles of a Necromancer website. This is another picture from the first issue.
The pictures again were well done and the story flowed well. I would recommend these books for fantasy readers of all ages and especially the young adults.
One critique would be that there is no catch-up page, so definitely read the first book before the second.
You can currently read this issue for free on the website. http://www.chroniclesofanecromancer.com/
4.5 stars from Kasper. Looking forward to the next issue.
