I was highly anticipating this issue. I didn’t care so much about Knight & Squire, I don’t even know their whole story up until now. But this story had Paul Cornell writing it in a British setting and the characters that showed up in the preview over the last month or so – well this was a must buy.
The character design, the comedy (even the British stuff), and the general premise is top notch. It’s a joy to read, but I think I need to read it a couple of times. It seems like some of the pages jump around a lot. I’m not sure I fully comprehend what even happened, because things would change so fast.
But the dialogue is great, the subtle jokes are great and it has me excited for the rest of the mini. It didn’t quite deliver everything I was hoping for – but it probably will.
*Note* I am giving the “story” portion a 4.5 ish scale. This is primarily because of the insane characters and the diatribes that Squire tells. The story itself is more like a 3.
