Starting with issue #4 and without much backstory to draw from, there is a teenager in me that is charmed by the story. I used to read a lot of sword & sorcery tales in my youth, and this is very much in that same vein. Blades, mystic energies, and power-hungry sorceress eager to see her enemies dead or enslaved.
It’s an ambitious story to tell, as (I presume) the Amazons move through various forms of world mythology and their respective gods and monsters. Blending them can be a challenge, but Kevin Grevioux has the luxury of being able to use what fits, and apply common threads to create a cohesive story.
The artwork is perfect, evoking my teen memories of several comic fantasy artists. He seems to have taken the designs of John Buscema, the textures of Joe Kubert, and the figure drawing of Gil Kane, and blended them into a unique style that seems both new and familiar at the same time.
