“Chapter Three Ghost of the Past”
Writer: Meredith Finch
Valeria is being nursed back to health by the priests of Mitra. She refuses to just rest which interferes in her healing. Soon after the monastery is attacked and Valeria volunteers to help. She first tries to help with the wounded but they bring back memories of the time Zingaran pirates attacked her village. She goes up to the wall and sees the army lead by a Lord Blasius. He is after a traitor that is being sheltered by the monastery. A traitor that turns out to be her brother’s friend Antonius. Valeria believes Antonius is responsible for the death of her brother and goes to confront him in his room.
“The Fall of Thoth-Amon Part 3”
By Matt Forbeck
Thoth-Amon tries to bluff his way after Malach calls for his arrest. Unfortunately the guards side with Malach and Thoth-Amon is forced to flee. He realizes that he has no friends with him being a total dick to everybody. He manages to jump through his secret trap door into the snake pit. The snakes don’t have venom because of the last victim so he doesn’t suffer any ill effects from the bites.
So this issue has Valeria recuperating after her attack. The monastery she is in is attacked by someone she knows from her past with her brother. She also finds his best friend Antonius who she believes is responsible for killing her brother. I admit a slow moving story but I find it interesting and really love the artwork. Also the prose story is really good.
