Featuring Dark Agnes: Part 2 adapted by the profoundly prolific writer Paul Tobin with art by me. The extraordinarily prolific artist Francesco Francavilla was at the helm for the art on Dark Agnes: Part 1 in Savage Sword #5, so Aaron McWhothehell?! might be an unpleasant surprise to some. However, I did make an effort to retain consistency with Francavilla’s first part, and one advantage in my favor was that this 3 part tale is the origin story of Dark Agnes. She abandons her oppressive past in Part 1, discovers her “darkness” in Part 2 and …well, I’m not giving away Part 3. Point being, I think the transitions in the 3 parts can handle a little stylistic deviation. But, by all means, judge for yourself. The issue came out a week or two ago, so please pick it up if you like this type of adventure comic. What do I mean by that, exactly? Well, the type that gets a little bloody. But there’s humor here, too, and if it doesn’t immediately come across, I suggest reading it aloud. Agnes has a voice that is distinct from the run-of-the-mill strong woman role, IMHO.
