Variant cover by BILLY TUCCI

Size: 32 pages
Price: 2.99

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.

  1. I couldn’t even understand what they were saying.

  2. "I’m not sure I fully comprehend what even happened, because things would change so fast."

    Eh, to be honest you probably DID comprehend most of it. There wasn’t really that much going on behind the scenes or anything.

    I see how some people might feel they were missing part of the narrative due to not understanding the British slang, but you didn’t miss much. The British in-jokes were just surface-level stuff, if that makes sense. I understood the slang and references, having lived in Britain a few years ago, but I wasn’t really that impressed with it.

  3. See the jokes and the actual conversation and all that I understood for the most part. It was like when things changed and when Faceoff suddenly went nuts and Knight & Squire jumped into action blah blah that I didn’t understand. The actual pacing was the part I didn’t understand. Who made it so the truce magic was gone, etc.


  4. Um, it was quite clearly stated in the issue by Knight who got rid of the truce magic. And Faceoff was in on it, so he didnt ‘suddenly go nuts’, he very deliberately attacked villains as part of the plan… That’s also said in the issue.
