Dark Horse Freebie-Amala’s Blade Review

7 Mar

I won a copy of Amala’s Blade #0 from Dark Horse Comics. They run monthly contests. This month’s contest for Dragon Age: Until We Sleep #1 can be found here: http://www.darkhorse.com/Contests/154/DH-FREEBIE–March2013–Contest .
Overall, the art is OK. It gets points for being different than run of the mill, but it doesn’t blow me away. Amala herself, on the other hand, is an intriguing character. She appears to be an assassin who is rebelling against a greater destiny while she talks aloud to people from her past (including those she’s killed) all in a steampunk setting. As is common in introductory issues, not much else can be deduced. The storytelling is strong, with decent layouts. I’ll need to keep my eye out for the future issues.
